What is a HydraFacial?
A HydraFacial is a medical-grade hydra-dermabrasion device. It functions by utilizing patented vortex technology to painlessly suction debris from pores, cleanse and exfoliate, as well as simultaneously infuse the skin with serums. These serums provide hydration and saturate the skin with antioxidants and peptides to maximize “glow”. Specific serums can be incorporated into the infusion based on the each patient’s needs and can correct concerns regarding redness, dark spots, lines and wrinkles, elasticity and firmness, enlarged pores, and oily and congested skin.
Who should get a HydraFacial?
HydraFacials are beneficial for nearly everyone of all ages and skin types except for those with active rashes, sunburns, rosacea, and pregnant patients. HydraFacials provide a relaxing experience free of pain with zero downtime!
A study posted in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology observed twenty female patients between the ages of 34-56 years old and the results from a HydraFacial. The volunteers were split into two groups of ten with Group A receiving a full hydra-dermabrasion treatment and Group B only having the same serum applied to the skin. The study found that those in Group A receiving full treatment had significantly improved skin quality and the level of their skin polyphenolic antioxidant level increased as well. Polyphenols have been shown to have great benefits in providing photoprotection and preventing the production of photocarcinogens. The patients in Group B who only received the serum had no detectable skin changes.
When will I see results and what can I expect?
Typically, results can be seen immediately! HydraFacials are the first of their kind in dermabrasion that does not cause irritation or peeling and provides results right after completion of the procedure. The experience has been described as the sensation of “a light massage” while delivering the incredible glow everyone craves.
HydraFacials are highly customizable and can be tailored to meet each individual patient’s needs. The strength of the device’s suction power, the strength of the salicylic acid infusion, the addition of specific serums, and the ability to pair with other procedures (i.e. botox, filler, lasers) make HydraFacials a one-of-a-kind procedure that can give you the skin of your dreams!
