HydraFacial MD is an ultra-hydrating process for the skin that uses hydradermabrasion to create beautifully clear, soft skin in only one treatment. What is unique about it is that it can cleanse, exfoliate, extract and hydrate the skin without hurting the individual and without creating redness or irritation following the procedure. Plus, it infuses the skin with antioxidants, peptides and serums that produce long-lasting effects that begin immediately and rejuvenates the skin.
Is HydraFacial Right for Me?
HydraFacial can be effective for people of all ethnicities and all skin types. Whether a person struggles with dry or oily skin, hydration, which is the cornerstone of HydraFacial, is of vital importance. It is also safe for very sensitive skin types. The exact serums and substances used with HydraFacial can be customized for each individual. It can stop some of the effects of aging on the skin, delaying or eliminating the need for more invasive procedures.
While it creates overall radiance and improves the health of skin cells, it can also help correct the following nagging skin issues:
- Fine lines
- Deep-set wrinkles
- Poor skin tone and texture
- Sagging skin
- Lack of skin radiance
- Large pores
- Sun spots
- Acne and breakouts
- Oily skin
- General aging concerns
How it Works
HydraFacial is a unique system that can be used in the comfort of a dermatologist’s office or at a medical spa. It is non-invasive and painless and provides instantaneous results. Using a series of steps, HydraFacial does everything from cleansing and exfoliating the skin of dead cells to extracting impurities from the pores. It then replenishes the skin using a customized serum to provide the skin with lasting hydration using antioxidants, peptides and hyaluronic acid, all of which are used to improve skin radiance, texture and elasticity and to limit the effects of aging. The four step process is described below.
Step 1: Vortex-Exfoliation
Using a specialized deplaning tool, the HydraFacial technician exfoliates the skin, removing dead skin cells, debris from leftover makeup and other dirt and grime that unknowingly collect on the face. Activ-4 serum is used as part of this process, which feels like a facial massage.
Step 2: Vortex-Peel
A very gentle serum using glycolic acid and salicylic acid provides all the benefits of a facial peel without any of the redness and irritation associated with a traditional peel. A faint tingle is all users will feel.
Step 3: Vortex-Extraction
A special tool using just the right amount of vacuum suction cleans out the pores much better than a manual method can do. Beta-HD serum is used in this step to target any individual problem areas deep within the skin. Users will feel a gentle, painless sucking on the skin.
Step 4: Vortex-Fusion
Antiox+ serum hydrates and replenishes the skin with antioxidants, peptides and hyaluronic acid. The technician uses the Vortex-Fusion tool to reach deep with the skin to improve plumpness by targeting elastin and collagen beneath the surface.
Step 5: Continued Protection and Hydration
Individuals are sent home with the Daily Essentials Kit that includes serums containing the same ingredients as were used during the HydraFacial. Using this kit as directed will help to extend the life of the HydraFacial and will keep the skin hydrated and glowing.
HydraFacial is known for being quick and painless and for leaving no marks. In fact, it is the perfect treatment for individuals on the go and can be fit into a lunch break. Most sessions take between 30 to 45 minutes, and individuals will leave without any redness or rashes on the face. Individuals can put makeup right back on and return to their normal skin care regimen immediately. Most people see visible results after only one treatment. However, some may wish to continue seeing results and may wish to schedule more treatments. It is recommended to receive one treatment per month to keep wrinkles, oiliness, breakouts and hyperpigmentation at bay.
