What is a Hydrafacial?
The Hydrafacial treatment is a hydradermabrasion technique that supports healthy, youthful skin in the gentlest way. Hydradermabrasion is similar to microdermabrasion but, instead of crystals or a diamond tip, the Hydrafacial device exfoliates the skin with a powerful combination of air and water. Treatment is not reserved for intense exfoliation, though. A Hydrafacial also extracts debris and infuses the skin with nutrients to restore vibrancy, softness, and resilience.
Benefits of a Hydrafacial
A single Hydrafacial treatment offers several benefits. The primary advantage of this professional facial is that your skin can look better immediately without any downtime whatsoever. Patients also find the non-invasive nature of this facial appealing, as it allows them to boost their skin’s natural regenerative processes without taking time out of their busy lives. A Hydrafacial is a comfortable, convenient, and effective method of pressing reset on the skin. Because of its gentle nature, this treatment is appropriate for nearly all skin types.
After treatment, patients notice improvements such as increased radiance, decreased pore size, and also a decline in puffiness. The infusion of nutrient-rich serums into the skin can also diminish the appearance of fine lines. Repeat treatments achieve cumulative effects that can extend the results of the Hydrafacial for months.
Who can benefit from a Hydrafacial?
A Hydrafacial treatment is suitable for a broad range of patients. There are no chemical solutions and no light energy involved in the process so virtually no risk of adverse reaction. Individuals who are interested in minimizing the appearance of hyperpigmentation, acne scarring, and fine lines may appreciate the various benefits of a Hydrafacial, as may the person who wishes to promote more graceful aging by boosting the nourishment and hydration of the skin.
How does a Hydrafacial work?
A Hydrafacial follows specific steps to cleanse, exfoliate, extract debris, and infuse superficial tissue. Treatment begins with a thorough cleansing and progresses to hydradermabrasion that dislodges surface debris and dead skin cells. Using vacuum suction, loosened matter is immediately removed to reveal younger, healthier cells. The skin is now ready to absorb the maximum amount of nutrition in the form of medical-grade serums.
Are there any side effects to Hydrafacial treatment?
Every step of the Hydrafacial is gentle and refreshing. Patients rarely report side effects. Individuals who are prone to redness or sensitivity may experience temporary flushing but this fades very quickly if it occurs at all.
Can I wear makeup after a Hydrafacial?
Patients can apply makeup immediately after their Hydrafacial. However, there may be extended benefits associated with going without for a day. The freshly cleansed and nourished skin may respond even better when given 24 hours to completely absorb only the antioxidants, peptides, and other solutions used during the facial.
How soon after a Hydrafacial will I see results?
Most people see an immediate boost in the radiance and softness of their skin after a Hydrafacial. Pores may also be visibly smaller and fine lines less prominent due to the infusion of hydration and rejuvenating serums.
How long do the results of a Hydrafacial last?
One Hydrafacial provides up to a full week of visible improvement. Depending on your long-term objectives, you may wish to schedule a series of treatments in our comfortable office. Up to four weekly treatments may be arranged to quickly multiply the effects of each session. After the fourth treatment, another one to two sessions may be scheduled four weeks or longer apart to maintain the cumulative effects.
Can a Hydrafacial be combined with additional procedures?
