5 star facial cleansing
HydraFacial includes skin cleansing, peeling, sebum extraction and moisturizing.
Facial cleansing at the practice has evolved and includes all those stages that leave the skin glowing and well nourished. HydraFacial, the method that even the stars trust before walking on the red carpet, is a painless treatment that offers deep facial cleansing, exfoliation, brightness, all in as little as 30 minutes.
Medical-grade hydradermabrasion, as scientists call it, is quite popular (only in 2017 2 million sessions were performed globally) because it combines different technologies and services without being painful.
In fact, it leaves no marks on the skin and poses no risk of inflammation, as there is no contact of the skin with the hands of the skincare professional.
What is HydraFacial?
HydraFacial is much more than a simple facial cleansing treatment. It is a painless, medical-grade solution for instant skin rejuvenation. It cleanses the skin, removes toxins and moisturizes in only one session. The method combines peeling and cleansing, two procedures that are typically performed separately, and are now are offered at the same time.
Who is HydraFacial for?
The ideal candidates for the HydraFacial method are patients who want skin rejuvenation with no downtime and with no ablation (e.g. something that mainly occurs with ablative lasers). Medical-grade facial cleansing can be safely performed in all skin types (normal, sensitive, oily, ageing). The indications of treatment are dull skin suffering from fatigue and impurities, the need to remove superficial, dead skin cells, enlarged pores, blackheads and whiteheads. Moreover, people with oily skin, fine wrinkles and dark spots will instantly notice improved skin tone.
HydraFacial is a hydradermabrasion device that uses four different tips (HydroPeel) and a wide variety of active substances (moisturizing and antioxidant solutions), to achieve the desired results. Combined with Vortex-Fusion technology, the spiral design easily removes debris from the face while simultaneously bathing the skin with nutrients.
More specifically, HydraFacial treatment involves the following steps:
- Facial cleansing & exfoliation of dead skin cells
- Peeling with fruit acids (glycolic and salicylic acid)
- Sebum extraction using a suction mechanism and hydration
- Infusion of antioxidants & hyaluronic acid and use of red light to stimulate collagen and elastin production.
According to the results of a clinical study presented in 2009 at the conference of the American Academy of Dermatology, after 6 HydraFacial sessions, the participants showed changes in skin structure. More specifically, as shown on the spectrometer which was used to perform the analysis and as the skin biopsies revealed, the participants showed among others improvement in the appearance of pores and expression lines, thicker skin and production of new collagen.
This innovative treatment can offer various benefits to the person who wishes to receive it.
