If you wish to fight the effects of aging and restore a youthful glow to your face, our unique HydraFacial procedure might be right for you.
What Is a HydraFacial?
A HydraFacial is a very popular cosmetic facial treatment that combines four skin treatments into a single session:
HydraFacials go above and beyond traditional facials to nourish, hydrate, and protect your skin.
What Is the Hydrafacial Procedure Like?
During a HydraFacial procedure, we use the patented HydraFacial workstation as the base of our operations. The workstation has everything we need to complete each step of your HydraFacial treatment, and it all starts with a gentle cleanse.
Once we cleanse your skin, we swap the HydraFacial tip and apply a gentle, nonirritating chemical peel. This peel helps exfoliate your skin and loosen dirt and debris lodged deep within your pores.
The next step is extraction using unique vortex vacuum technology. This vortex technology creates a strong yet gentle suction on the surface of your skin that effortlessly pulls dirt, dead skin, debris, and blackheads from your pores.
We finish up your HydraFacial by applying a blend of serums that are rich in peptides, antioxidants, and other nutrients that your skin craves. This hydrates and rejuvenates your skin and creates a protective layer to help prevent future damage.
8 Impressive HydraFacial Benefits
When you decide to get a HydraFacial, you can expect to experience several skin-loving benefits.
1. Treatment Is Customized to Meet Your Skin’s Needs
Everybody’s skin is unique and deserves to be treated as such. When you visit us for a HydraFacial, we will discuss what areas you’re concerned about and fine-tune the treatment accordingly. For example, if you struggle with a chronically dull complexion, we can add specific serums — such as vitamin C serum — to brighten your skin.
2. Works on All Skin Types
Unlike many cosmetic treatments, HydraFacials are not highly exclusive when it comes to the ideal patient. Young or aging, oily, dry, or sensitive, HydraFacial works equally well on all skin types.
3. Minimizes the Appearance of Fine Lines and Wrinkles
HydraFacial can help diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around your face in a few different ways.
Fine lines and wrinkles can look more severe than they really are when your skin isn’t properly hydrated. Hydrating your skin allows HydraFacial to create a plumper, firmer, and smoother appearance.
Additionally, HydraFacials help address the root cause of fine lines and wrinkles — collagen loss — by stimulating collagen and elastin production within your body.
4. Improves Skin Tone and Texture
The gentle exfoliation provided during a HydraFacial removes the top layer of skin to reveal the new, healthy, brighter skin underneath. This also allows the serums applied during the last step to penetrate deeper and be more effective at evening out your skin tone and texture.
5. Fades Spots of Hyperpigmentation
Hyperpigmentation is something many people struggle to accept. Whether your hyperpigmentation is caused by sun damage, hormones, or the natural aging process, the HydraFacial can help fade its appearance by increasing cellular turnover.
When cellular turnover is increased, the hyperpigmented skin cells are gradually replaced with regular, healthy, younger-looking skin.
6. Shrinks Enlarged Pores
Enlarged pores are commonly caused by a buildup of dirt and debris over a long period of time. Even if you wash your face regularly, your at-home cleanser probably does not reach deep enough to effectively clean out these pores.
The powerful yet gentle Vortex-Fusion technology used in a HydraFacial effectively sucks out any dirt or gunk lingering deep within your pores. Once your pores are clean, they will begin to shrink.
7. No Downtime After Treatment
Many people find that their skin is noticeably plumper, smoother, brighter, and overall happier immediately after treatment, and they’re eager to show it off. The good news is that, unlike most chemical peels and other skin treatments, absolutely no downtime is necessary after HydraFacial treatment.
8. Easy to Combine with Other Treatments
We can boost the effects of the HydraFacial — or just save you some time — by combining treatments. Let us know about all of your cosmetic concerns, and we can help you build a customized treatment plan that will meet your goals.
How Often Should You Get a HydraFacial?
Although HydraFacials do last longer than traditional facials, their effects still fade with time. That’s why after getting a HydraFacial, many people want to know when they can get another.
To keep your skin looking and feeling its best, we recommend getting a HydraFacial every four to six weeks.
