What is a Hydrafacial?
Hydrafacial is the ultimate facial which cleans, hydrates and infuses rejuvenating antioxidant serums to treat a variety of skin conditions.
Your skin is constantly bombarded with ultraviolet light and environmental challenges which results in photodamaged skin. Photoaged skin has decreased collagen, is thinner skin with a compromised skin barrier. Hydrafacial restores skin health and reverse the effects of photodamaged skin.
Who is a Candidate for a Hydrafacial?
Hydrafacial is appropriate for women and men of all skin types. Hydrafacial treats a variety of conditions such as fine lines, sun damage, brown spots, congested and oily skin, enlarged pores and skin texture.
Regular Hydrafacial treatments decreases pore size and fine lines, as well as lightens dark pigmentation. The overall skin tone and texture will be improved after Hydrafacial treatments increasing in the skin’s thickness, improving skin hydration and providing the antioxidant benefits of increasing collagen and fibroblast activity.
Hydrafacial treatments are often used in combination with other medical treatments to maximize results by providing hydration, antioxidants, thickening the skin and increasing skin fibroblasts. When used in conjunction with other treatments a short Hydrafacial series is performed three weeks prior the planned medical therapy and again two weeks post-treatment. Examples of medical treatments optimized with Hydrafacial treatments include laser peel, microneedling, IPL photofacial and chemical peels.
How is a Hydrafacial Done?
Hydrafacial is performed in three steps: “1) Cleanse and peel, 2) extract and hydrate and 3) Fuse and protect.” The Hydrafacial treatment uses a water based suction device that gently moves across the skin. The dead skin cells and pores are decongested, while the skin is treated with antioxidants and peptides customized to the patient’s needs all while providing nourishing hydration and moisture.
Rejuvenating antioxidant boosters are then applied to targeting specific conditions. For example:
- CTGF Dermabuilder Boost – targets fine lines and wrinkles.
- CTGT Growth Factor Boost- restore skin vitality by improving dull skin.
- Britenol Boost – improves photo damaged signs such as sun spots or age spots
- Alastin Boost
- ZO Boost
Red or blue LED lights, as well as lymphatic drainage techniques can be used depending on the condition being treated, such as acne prone skin or redness.
