What is a HydraFacial?
The HydraFacial MD® is an exfoliating system addresses all skin types and needs. Clients can receive a gentle and effective treatment that targets fine lines, wrinkles, clogged pores, large pores, uneven skin tone and more.
The HydraFacial® prides itself on being effective for all skin types and it works to remove impurities in the skin that cause many of the signs associated with early aging. In a four-step process, the HydraFacial® removes dead skin cells, extracts debris from pores, exfoliates and administers nutrients in order to rejuvenation the skin.
Our daily activities and lifestyle habits contribute to the damage that’s placed onto the face and body. UV rays, bacteria and other environmental concerns all hasten the effects of irritation on the skin, which is why it is vital to continually provide exfoliation and hydration.
There are four steps to the Hydrafacial:
- Step one: The first step of your HydraFacial MD® will include facial cleansing using Vortex technology. The spiral motion of the HydraPeel tip will exfoliate the outer layer of the skin, effectively widening the pores and removing dead skin cells.
- Step two: Next, the same vortex HydroPeel® tip is used to administer soothing amounts of both salicylic and glycolic acid to remove the debris present in the pores and even re-contour the pores to deter acne.
- Step three: Once the acid is removed, Vortex-Fusion® administers painless extractions using vacuum suction. The extractions target the entire face and remove black heads and other imperfections.
- Step four: Lastly, antioxidant, peptide and hyaluronic acid formulas are applied to the skin in order to provide replenishment and restoration as well as detoxify the skin from additional environmental harm.
How often should I have a HydraFacial?
It is ideal if you receive a HydraFacial® treatment at least once a month, however it is also important that you maintain a physician recommended skincare regime in between your facials. This combination can restore damaged skin and create a healthy younger looking skin.
What should I expect from a HydraFacial?
The HydraFacial® has the ability to be customized to the specific skin conditions of each patient, whether that is age spots, fine lines, clogged pores, oily skin and more. Overall, the system will target many of the universal issues associated with pigmentation and aging, but those who suffer from unique skin concerns can receive treatment that targets their unique needs.
When you finish your HydraFacial treatment you should have a healthy and beautiful glow to your skin. You should experience little to no irritation however if you do, then the redness will subside usually within the hour. You will be able to notice results after just one treatment and you can expect your skin to be more hydrated, smooth and over time, you will see an improvement in your pigmentation and often clients even notice an improvement in their pore size.
Depending on your skin type and the issues affecting it, your HydraFacial® may have variations in the steps listed above, but any additions to your treatment will be used to enhance the long-lasting effects of the HydraFacial®. The procedure should take no longer than 30 minutes.
