You may have been told or have heard many things about receiving a facial. Truth is, it depends on your skin and who you are, as everyone is different. Deep exfoliation and extraction methods can leave the skin red and irritated, but these treatments are also good for your skin in the long run, especially if you are one of those suffering from breakouts, acne, or just bad skin in general. However, it is important to note, that all facials are not the same.
There is no one-size-fits-all facial, but consider that a good thing. From the classic cleansing facial to the ones that use high-tech gadgets, lights, and lasers, there are plenty of options available. People with every skin type, even the most sensitive, can find themselves in good hands with the help of a skin expert, such as a dermatologist or esthetician.
Traditional facials are a combination of chemical or natural ingredients, including a mask with massage, for a relaxing feeling and specific beneficial effect on the skin, as it has been cleaned out. Facials will also often include hot towel or steam to help with extraction of impurities.
The HydraFacial MD Difference
Everyone wants results immediately, and that goes especially for those who are always needing to look their best, or simply want to look new and refreshed. Throughout the years, technology has evolved within the cosmetic and medispa field, and the latest breakthrough that has shown great promise in aesthetic technology is called HydraFacial MD. The HydraFacial is a new skin care procedure sweeping the nation.
Unlike a normal facial, the solution of moisturizers and antioxidants in a HydraFacial are much stronger, and the amount of cleansing, repair, rejuvenation, and resurfacing you receive from this procedure is much more powerful than a normal facial.
A HydraFacial is called a hydradermabrasion facial, the newest advance in non-laser skin resurfacing, and the only procedure that combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration, and antioxidant protection, all in one. The goal of this procedure is to do more than just clean the skin, but to moisturize it, hydrate it, and solve the patient’s skin problems.
The main feature of the HydraFacial MD is the handheld device equipped with three different heads, which feels like a suction cup when used on the skin. Each of the three nozzles and the tips for the facial are customized to each patient’s needs and skin concerns, for example wrinkles, acne, dry or oily skin, etc. While a traditional facial may take a while, the result of a HydraFacial is skin that looks youthful, smoother, brighter, clean, and unclogged, in just about 30-45 minutes.
This type of facial offers dramatic skin cleansing and resurfacing, removing dead skin cells and impurities, leaving people with successful results, no pain, and no long down time or recovery period. While HydraFacial may seem like a normal facial, it isn’t. This procedure rejuvenates the skin by filling it with moisture, so it looks much healthier than even before. During this type of facial, the doctor uses a combination of solutions for the specialized applicator with customizable nozzles, to extract impurities and deeply moisturize and cleanse the skin. HydraFacial MD also can help change the overall tone, clarity, and texture of your skin. Results are glowing, hydrated, and more youthful looking skin and overall appearance.
Evidence-based research has shown that this procedure can deliver instant, red-carpet worthy results without damaging your skin, which can happen during a normal facial if it is too rough on the skin, depending on the person’s situation and skin type. In other words, HydraFacial is a different kind of skin-enhancing treatment because of how it not only cleanses the skin, but how it exfoliates, hydrates, and rejuvenates the skin to instantly improve the overall appearance all in one shot.
If you are looking for a change in the tone, clarity, and texture of your skin, the HydraFacial is the choice for you. If you are looking to feel more pampered, relaxed, and just to maintain healthy skin, a normal facial is the better choice. Your doctor will help you make this decision during your consultation.
What to Expect During a HydraFacial
HydraFacial MD is a unique facial treatment that is non-invasive and delivers amazing results. The innovative delivery system simultaneously cleanses, exfoliates, and extracts impurities and dead skin cells, while quenching your thirsty skin with vital nutrients like antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid.
The HydraFacial treatment has multiple steps. First, we will examine your skin, and give their recommendations for the best treatment options, depending on your problem areas and skin type, because everyone is different. The skin is first cleansed and exfoliated using the device, which removes the dead, dry skin cells, which serve as an obstacle to achieving radiant, soft, and clean skin.
Then, with low levels of glycolic and salicylic acids, the HydraFacial tool is used as a peel, cleansing the skin with moisturizing serums, loosening dirt and oil clogging your pores, by sucking out and extracting everything, eliminating impurities.
The final step is replenishing the pores. The device hydrates the skin with necessary antioxidants and vitamins. This procedure’s motto is no discomfort or downtime, resulting in beautiful skin.
What to Expect After a HydraFacial
As mentioned before, HydraFacial is a non-invasive, non-surgical, hydradermabrasion facial, the only procedure that combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, and hydration, with antioxidant protection. After the facial, patients have seen a difference in their skin, specifically experiencing visibly clearer, more beautiful skin.
What is unique and most important, is that this type of facial delivers long-term skin health, and can be tailored to meet the specific needs of all skin types. It offers instant, noticeable results. The treatment is soothing, refreshing, non-irritating and immediately effective. Your skin will probably feel more smooth, healthy, and hydrated than it has in a very long time. If you had lines and wrinkles, they will be less noticeable. There is little irritation, and while your face may be slightly red for about two hours, it will leave you feeling your best.
