Cosmetic facial treatments for the rejuvenation of skin tissue come in many forms, but most of them involve a one-step method and address only a single problem. Wrinkling and discolorations are often caused by multiple factors. As we age and mature, our skin holds less moisture. It becomes thinner and more subject to wrinkles and smile lines. Collagen production decreases, and this leads to even more wrinkling and brittleness.
The HydraFacial treatment is a multi-step procedure that exfoliates and extracts, opens up clogged pores and infuses the skin with natural compounds, such as Vitamin E. We highly recommend this procedure for anyone who wants to get rid of their drab facial appearance and replace it with glowing, more youthful skin.
Cleansing and Exfoliating the Skin
The HydraFacial treatment involves the use of a large machine to which is attached several hoses and instruments. The machine also has a view monitor so that the specialist can more easily see the ongoing procedure. The monitor displays data information on vacuum pressure and amounts of nutrients being fed to the surface skin.
The first step in the procedure is cleansing. A deplaning tool is used to collect and sweep away dead skin cells, makeup and other foreign material. The instrument used is like a rotating toothbrush.
Mild Chemical Peel
Most peel treatments are rather harsh and can actually bleach the skin. The HydraFacial peel procedure is much more gentle. Aside from a tingling sensation, the client feels nothing at all. This gentle peel removes the outermost epidermal layer. The solution is removed after just a few minutes.
The peel procedure is followed by a powerful extraction treatment that uses a specialized vacuum instrument. The vortex-extraction nozzle removes all pore clogs, and the client can actually see the results when the removed material is collected in a small vessel. This extraction results in open pores that allows better skin respiration.
The final step in the procedure is the application of nutrient-rich serums. These are delivered by a special instrument called a vortex-fusion tool. The serum contains antioxidants and other nutrients as well as hydrating compounds.
After the Treatment
The results are immediately noticeable after the treatment. The previously dull facial skin is now smooth and glowing. However, this isn’t the end of the seemingly magical transformation. Over the next few weeks, collagen production increases and the facial lines and wrinkles continue to become less apparent. The smooth, hydrated skin remains glowing and supple for months.
Advantages of the HydraFacial Treatment
Most cosmetic procedures intended to improve the appearance of facial skin treat only one symptom. Some of the harsher treatments such as abrasive resurfacing and deep peels can actually cause permanent discolorations. Plumping treatments can smooth out the rough spots, but don’t offer permanent anti-aging solutions. The HydraFacial is a multi-step procedure that addresses the concerns of what causes wrinkling skin and skin discolorations, and it helps to improve the overall skin tone using natural serums.
