Cleansing and exfoliating the facial skin is a multi-step process. Simple cleaning and moisturizing aren’t enough to encourage the growth of healthier, clearer and suppler skin. One of the most innovative treatments is the HydraFacial® procedure. Carried out by a skilled professional and using the latest in cleansing device technology, a HydraFacial® is a complete, multi-step procedure that not only cleans and exfoliates, but also introduces specially formulated nutrient serums that stimulate healthier skin growth. When treated with the HydraFacial® cleansing process, clients also experience a steady growth of collagen, meaning that the new skin growth will be more elastic, even-toned and wrinkle-free.
About the Procedure
The first step in the HydraFacial® treatment is exfoliation using a special serum. This dislodges grime and dirt in the skin pores. Damaged or dead skin cells are gently lifted away.
A peel treatment follows the exfoliation. Following the peel application, a suction treatment vacuums away the dead tissue as well as any residue left in the skin pores.
The skin is then protected by applying nutrient-laden serums containing antioxidants, hyaluronic acid and peptides. Finally, a protective program is given to the client so that maintenance of the skin can continue at home.
What Patients Should Expect
The machinery used for a HydraFacial® treatment is quite advanced and includes a vacuum pump, several devices and a monitoring screen. No anesthetic or topical numbing agent is necessary, and the patient should not feel much discomfort during exfoliation or the chemical peel application.
A typical HydraFacial® session takes about one and a half hours. Afterwards, normal activities can be resumed at once. Over the next few weeks, clients will notice a clearing up of the skin, less noticeable wrinkling and better overall skin tone.
Advantages of the HydraFacial® Treatment
Because the process is multi-step and concentrates on cleansing and introducing nutrients, this treatment is suitable for all skin types. Some individuals are concerned about peel treatments, especially those clients who have darker skin tone. However, the chemicals used in the HydraFacial® peel procedure do not bleach the skin. Also, because the skin is rejuvenated following the treatment, an increased amount of collagen is produced, and this increase continues for quite some time.
Many of the popular abrasive treatments do not actually stimulate healthier skin growth. They merely remove the epidermis while the pores remain clogged and the skin continues to receive below-average nutrition. The HydraFacial® addresses this issue by including a full exfoliation step as well as the introduction of special nutrients that are proven to aid in the growth of healthier skin cells.
