Caring for your skin every day is important no matter what your age. When you perform a high quality routine for your skin every day, your skin will look healthier, have a nice glow and be better hydrated. Unfortunately, as the skin begins to age, your routine is not enough by itself. Age can cause wrinkles, imperfections in your skin, dark spots and fine lines. If you spend a lot of time in the sun, the damage to your skin may be worse. You should protect your skin from the sun with sunblock. There is a solution for decreasing the appearance of numerous skin issues, bringing back the youthful glow and improving the health of your skin. This skin treatment is called a HydraFacial®. The treatment has become very popular, and for good reason!
This is one of the gentlest treatments available for healthy and smooth skin. The procedure is also non-invasive and soothing. The majority of facials are only able to treat one specific imperfection. One of the reasons this treatment is preferable is because nearly any imperfection in your facial skin can be effectively treated including dark spots and wrinkles. The HydraFacial® removes the impurities and dead skin from your face. This is accomplished with a combination of resurfacing and exfoliation. This process is gentle and reveals a brand new skin layer. Vortex suction is then applied to remove the debris and dirt from your pores. A moisturizing serum rich in both peptides and antioxidants will be applied until your skin is saturated. The treatment is easy, fast and comfortable.
Some of the benefits are revealed immediately. You will not have to worry about any downtime because you can resume your daily routine as soon as your procedure has been completed. You can apply your cosmetics, go out to lunch, go home or go back to work. The procedure is even customized according to your individual needs and goals. The facial is an excellent option for every type of skin including extremely sensitive skin.
You will begin by having a consultation with a cosmetic professional. Your skin will be evaluated. You will talk about your expectations and goals. This will enable the cosmetic professional to recommend the best possible treatment for you. If you have certain diseases or skin conditions, this procedure may not be an option. This treatment is an ideal choice for individuals with:
• Congested or oily skin
• Enlarged and congested pores
• An uneven or irregular tone to the skin
• Dull skin lacking a healthy glow or a vibrant appearance
• Skin prone to acne
• Wrinkles and fine lines
• Brown spots, sun spots and age spots
• A loss of firmness and elasticity
As soon as your treatment has concluded, your skin will be more hydrated, clearer, smoother and have a more youthful glow. Your skin will not only look good, but you will love the way your skin feels as well. The most common results after just one treatment are an improvement in both texture and skin tone. Most people have additional treatments because they want to maintain their results. If you continue having this procedure, you will begin to notice a dramatic improvement in hydration, less wrinkles and fine lines and fewer dark spots.
Most people are unaware that keeping the skin hydrated is of critical importance. Using hot water to wash your face will not enable your skin to absorb the moisture or open up your pores. There are a lot of misconceptions regarding the best way to care for and hydrate your skin. The best possible way to ensure your skin receives hydration is by using a moisturizer capable of deep penetration. There are also many different ways your skin can be damaged. The facts include:
• You will have already received 23 percent of the amount of sun exposure you should receive during the course of your entire life by the time you turn twenty years of age.
• Sunlight can cause you to react negatively to cologne, perfume, antibiotics and medication. This can damage your skin.
• Once you reach the age of twenty, your production of collagen will decline by one percent every year.
• Using an SPF sunscreen to protect your skin can help eliminate sun damage. You should apply sunscreen every day.
• Approximately ninety percent of the changes in your skin such as freckles, a drop in collagen production, premature aging and discoloration result from exposure to the sun and the aging process.
• The UV rays from the sun are not any weaker on a cloudy day than they are on a sunny day.
• Every regeneration of your skin results in the formation of wrinkles and fine lines, the loss of some elasticity, your skin becoming thinner and damaged blood vessels becoming easier to see.
A HydraFacial® is not the same as a traditional facial. The approach is completely different despite some of the benefits being the same. The procedure is referred to as a hydradermabrasion treatment due to the different steps in the process. These include cleansing, exfoliation and the infusion of serums. These serums are customized for your unique skin condition, issues, skin type and concerns. The basis of the entire process is your skin. This means an older gentleman with wrinkles and sun damage will not receive the same treatment as a youth fighting acne.
If you have had a traditional facial in the past, you will notice some similarities towards the beginning of your treatment such as the cleansing of your skin and the exfoliation so your pores will be opened. This is where the treatments differ because the next step is a light peel so any dead or damaged skin cells are dissolved. The debris, oil and dirt clogging up your pores is vacuumed away with an extraction nozzle. The serum infusion is the final portion of your treatment. The serum is applied using a vortex-infusion tool by the cosmetic professional. The serum used depends on your skin type. The serum is rich with antioxidants and collagen to help eliminate any skin issues you are experiencing. The overall hydration and elasticity of your skin will also receive a nice boost.
The length of your treatment is dependent on the quality of your skin and the exact procedure. You will not experience any real downtime with your treatment. A lot of people save time by scheduling their procedure during a break from their other daily errands because they are able to return directly to their schedules.
Most individuals choose to have a treatment done regularly. The additional sessions have a cumulative effect on your skin. This means you will notice a consistent improvement in your skin. The combination of a good skincare routine and a regular treatment will help you maintain skin health for the future. The procedure flushes out your skin so it becomes easier to apply cosmetics. Your skincare products will penetrate much deeper, making them more effective. Your skin will be smoother, plumper and more hydrated with an improvement in wrinkles, discoloration and fine lines.
The Procedure for the Hydrafacial®
The treatment has made an impact on the beauty and skincare industries. The treatment is considered a hybrid because it combines the most popular skincare and facial treatments for rejuvenating your skin. The procedure can eliminate the most stubborn blackheads, help even out the tone of your skin, smooth out fine lines and wrinkles and address oily skin. The best part is there is no set downtime. Your pores are opened temporarily for an effective cleansing, exfoliation and extraction. The impurities are removed from your skin without any damage. The customized serums close your pores while hydrating your skin.
The procedure has been proven to be effective, and it’s performed in the comfort of our office. Although each treatment is customized, the basic steps remain the same. With that being said, the exact details of the treatment will depend on numerous factors including your specific skin issues, the condition of your skin and your ultimate goals.
