Skin that begins to show the signs of aging prompts many adults to consider everything from chemical peels to dermal fillers to abrasive resurfacing. While these treatments can be effective at smoothing the skin, an overall treatment that not only exfoliates but also introduces specific nutrients is a better solution. The revolutionary HydraFacial™ treatment is a multi-step cleansing, extraction and nutrient infusion process that opens up pores, removes dead and damaged skin cells and jumpstarts the rejuvenation of the skin. We highly recommend this treatment for our clients who complain of dull, brittle skin that doesn’t retain moisture, and we also encourage those who are seeking a way to increase collagen production and thus give the skin a suppler texture to consider the HydraFacial™ treatment.
Problems with Pores
One of the most common problems associated with age-related skin damage is the enlargement and clogging of facial skin pores. When pores become enlarged, they trap dead skin tissue and other foreign material. The skin cannot breathe properly, and these pores often become the seed of such issues as age spots and other melanin-rich discolorations. The HydraFacial™ treatment can improve the situation dramatically.
Rough, Brittle Skin
A decrease in the amount of collagen produced by the body combined with the inability of the skin to retain moisture can negatively affect one’s appearance. The HydraFacial™ treatment includes a step where dead and damaged skin cells are removed through a gentle peel. This kickstarts a process whereby the body accelerates the production of healthier skin tissue.
The HydraFacial™ Treatment
The first step in the treatment involves the use of a rotary-style deplaning tool. It gently scrubs the skin surface and opens up clogged pores. This is followed by a gentle peel treatment using a mild acid. The upper epidermal layer is removed, and this makes it easier to extract foreign material using what is known as a vortex-extraction tool, which is similar to a vacuum hose.
After the extraction step is completed, a nutrient-rich serum is applied using an infusion tool. The serum contains peptides and antioxidants that will accelerate the growth of healthy epidermal tissue.
Visible results are almost immediately noticeable after the treatment is performed, with the skin more radiant and evenly toned. However, over the next month or so, our clients also notice a decrease in the severity of dynamic wrinkling. This is because collagen production has greatly increased. The pores will also magically shrink and become virtually invisible. Overall, the skin texture becomes smoother and more elastic.
Advantages of the HydraFacial™ Treatment
On its own, a chemical peel helps to remove damaged skin and promote healthier growth, but it isn’t as effective as when combined with a nutrient delivery system. Resurfacing treatments also remove the epidermis and damaged cells, but they don’t address the problem of skin discolorations such as acne scars and freckles. The HydraFacial™ treatment covers all the bases.
