The HydraFacial is quickly becoming one of the most popular in-office skincare treatments, due to its effectiveness and lack of side effects. It can address many skin concerns, including dry skin and aging skin with a four-step treatment which includes cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, and hydration with serums, specifically tailored to improve your skin quality and condition.
How does the HydraFacial Work?
A HydraFacial can remove dead skin cells and clean clogged pores with gentle suction power. After the skin has been thoroughly cleansed, exfoliated, and extracted, the skin is infused with custom serums to hydrate the skin and target a range of skin concerns. One may choose from anti-aging antioxidants or blemish controlling exfoliants to keep the pores clear. The patented technology behind HydraFacial not only handles fine lines and wrinkles, but it can also improve congested skin without manual extraction.
What to expect from a HydraFacial treatment?
A HydraFacial process begins with cleansing and exfoliating to remove dead skin cells and sebum from the skin. Next, chemical exfoliants such as salicylic acid and glycolic acid are applied to the skin to break down sebum and dirt from within the pores. The Hydrapeel Tip is then used to vacuum blackheads, dirt, oil, and other skin clogging impurities from the pores leaving the skin hydrated, plump and glowing.
Who is a good candidate for the HydraFacial?
The HydraFacial is so gentle that it can be performed on any skin type. In addition, the treatment is specifically tailored to the patient so their skin concerns are treated correctly. Good candidates for the HydraFacial include those with the following skin difficulties:
- Fine lines
- Loss of firmness
- Skin texture concerns
- Congested pores
Although this treatment is non-invasive and gentle on all skin types, those with severe acne or rosacea are advised on how to treat their skin concerns with other methods before trying a HydraFacial. For example, you may require a deeper level of resurfacing or you may achieve better wrinkle-smoothing results from medical grade peels or fillers. All of these options are discussed in a private consultation with Nurse Leslie Stewart, our highly-trained aesthetic nurse.
What is the recovery for a HydraFacial?
Since the HydraFacial is so gentle on the skin, there is no downtime. It is an excellent treatment for those with acne, fine lines, flaky skin, or a dull complexion. It can brighten and clear the skin, reduce large pores, and even skin tone with no side effects.
You may experience mild redness after the procedure, but that will quickly subside. Following your treatment, it is best to let the skin rest. It is advised to avoid makeup or applying other products to your skin for 24 hours.
