111752355_sWith the start of a new year, we often focus on bettering our health, whether that means eating cleaner or trying to drop a few pounds. What most of us typically don’t consider though is the health of our skin, which is the largest organ of the human body.

If you see flaws in your skin including early-aging fine lines and wrinkles, sun-damage, age spots, blackheads, whiteheads, enlarged pores, excess oil, or puffy eyes, you should consider getting a HydraFacial®.

What is a HydraFacial®?

HydraFacial® is a hydrating, non-laser, skin-resurfacing technology that uses specially formulated serums in combination with a vacuum-based tip to remove dead skin cells and impurities while infusing underlying skin with deep cleansing, antioxidants, and anti-aging serums.

These proprietary serums are custom-blended for your unique skin conditions and clinically formulated to improve the appearance of early-aging fine lines and wrinkles, sun-damaged skin, age spots, and more. The result is a cool, comfortable process that leaves the skin radiantly clean, redefined, moist, polished, and rejuvenated. Results are comparable to chemical peels and microdermabrasion without discomfort or downtime.

What happens during a HydraFacial® and how long does it take?

This four-step, deep-cleansing infusion process uses a hydrating, non-laser skin resurfacing technology to deliver a rejuvenated, glowing, and youthful appearance. HydraFacial uses anti-aging serums in conjunction with a computerized piece of equipment, delivering tiny droplets of emulsified serums to the skin through a microfiber tip.

The tip moves across the skin, removing debris and dirt from the top layer while simultaneously deep-cleaning pores. Next, a mild glycolic acid is used to buff away skin cells. The skin is then infused with antioxidants to provide protection from UV light and harmful free radicals.

HydraFacial® is a fast, efficient treatment that takes about 30 minutes to complete. It can also be used anywhere on your skin, including your face, back, shoulders, or arms.

What should I do after a HydraFacial®?

One of the best perks about getting a HydraFacial®, other than all the significant improvements it will make to your skin, is that there is no downtime afterward! Once your treatment is done, you can go back to your normal routine without any unsightly redness or swelling.

This means that you can put makeup on right after the treatment or head to the gym if you’d like. Of course, if you have an option in doing so, it is great to give your skin a break for the remainder of the day if possible.

We do recommend that you avoid the sun and exfoliation for up to three days after your HydraFacial® to ensure you aren’t irritating your skin.

How often should I get a HydraFacial®?

While many clients report seeing improvements in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and oily skin after just one treatment, it is recommended to get a HydraFacial® more than once.

We recommend having one treatment per month to protect and rejuvenate your skin, and help maintain optimum skin health results.
