The Latest HydraFacial Information
Your skin is a precious commodity. And yet, every day you’re putting it through its paces. The more your skin is exposed to the elements—cold, heat, wind, sweat—the more shows its age. This is because your skin absorbs damage from the elements in a bid to keep you safe from them. In other words, your skin cracks so that nothing underneath it does. Luckily, your skin is also an incredibly recuperative organ. And you can help it out. One procedure designed to help keep your skin feeling healthy and new is called HydraFacial MD.
Facials and peels have been a component of cosmetic surgery and medical spas for quite some time, because they offer the patient a chance to relax, recuperate, and rejuvenate. But facials have always had the downside of necessarily damaging the skin—in order to encourage its rejuvenation. HydraFacial solves this by using moisture to perform the facial. In other words, not only does HydraFacial work to exfoliate the skin, remove gunk, and repair damage, but it also simultaneously helps the skin heal by moisturizing and rejuvenating with its special hydrating formula. In other words, your skin gets a lot of a good thing.
How Does HydraFacial Work?
When a cosmetic surgeon employs a HydraFacial machine for a treatment, several things happen. The first step is something called Vortex-Exfoliation, in which the special HydraFacial serum removes expired skin cells to reveal the healthy ones beneath. Next, another serum—Glysal serum—is applied as a kind of peel without peeling. In the third step, a suction process is used to clean out the pores with help form yet another serum. Fourth, a serum designed to help with antioxidants and peptides in the skin is applied. The fifth step is the continuation of treatment in the home setting using HydraFacial products.
The entire procedure is over in under an hour. Due to the nature of the treatment, there is usually no the redness associated with other chemical and acid peels. Patients can immediately resume normal activities, and they will often do so with a newfound sensation of relaxation in the skin of their face. HydraFacial is designed to eliminate that “tight” sensation that comes with unmoisturized, unhealthy, or damaged skin. The results are a great way to rejuvenate the face.
Am I a Good Candidate for a HydraFacial Treatment?
HydraFacial treatments are used to address a wide variety of facial skin issues, including many of the following ailments:
- Aged skin, including age spots
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Darkened or dampened skin (if your skin is less radiant than it was in youth)
- Oily skin or congested pores
- Skin that is overly sensitive
If you find yourselves suffering from any of these ailments, HydraFacial is a great option that can help you look and feel more youthful and more energized in a matter of minutes.
Patients are generally very satisfied with HydraFacial results. To be sure, a HydraFacial is not going to deliver dramatic results—even as dramatic results as Botox Injections or dermal filler treatments. However, this treatment is capable of eliminating subtle lines and wrinkles as well as age spots and other signs of damage to the skin. As such, patients can expect a slight improvement in those areas. Combined, however, the issues mitigated by HydraFacial treatments can leave patients feeling more youthful and rejuvenated, and that can lead to improvements in the look of the face.
There are, of course, other peels available, and sometimes those peels can be combined, though you should always consult with your cosmetic surgeon before you make plans for this. HydraFacial is a good foil to other peels because it moisturizes at the same time that it peels, meaning that it certainly feels much better.
For patients who do not want to deal with the invasiveness of surgery or who are not interested in other injectable or non surgical treatments, HydraFacial can be a great alternative. It’s always simply a great way to feel good about your face. So if you’re thinking about facial rejuvenation and you want to treat your face to something great, contact a cosmetic surgeon today to begin your transformation.
