Who doesn’t want to find a better way to put their best face forward? The hunt for non-invasive techniques that help improve your skin’s texture and tone is something many of us have in common. For long-lasting results that reveal healthy, radiant skin in as little time as it takes to undergo a single treatment, there’s only one consistently wonderful answer: HydraFacial®.
Microdermabrasion vs. the HydraFacial
We often hear comparisons between these two treatments. In fact, many people refer to the HydraFacial as “wet microdermabrasion.” While the correlation makes sense, there is so much more to discover about how HydraFacial works and what benefits it offers.
Microdermabrasion is a gentle way to minimize the early signs of aging and other issues such as sun damage, hyperpigmentation, acne, stretch marks and light scarring by gently exfoliating your skin. This type of controlled friction helps to stimulate and thicken your collagen, resulting in an overall more youthful appearance. Your HydraFacial includes a similar type of skin exfoliation, but that’s just the beginning.
The HydraFacial Difference
The key to the efficiency and effectiveness that HydraFacial is known for is its multi-step treatment approach that includes the Vortex-Fusion® serum delivery system. In addition to exfoliating your skin, the system sees to a thorough cleansing and subsequent extractions that whisk away impurities and dispose of dead skin cells, so your inner glow is no longer hidden by a layer of complexion-dulling dirt and environmental debris.
Next comes the nourishment. Your newly refreshed skin is now infused with essential nutrients like hyaluronic acid (a naturally occurring substance that aids in hydration and helps build supple skin, but that unfortunately tends to dissipate with age), peptides and antioxidants. You’re basically stripping away the things that are having a negative impact on your skin and replacing those counterproductive substances with the things your skin needs to thrive.
Customized Treatment Thanks to HydraFacial
While microdermabrasion is a sort of one-size-fits-all treatment that attacks all potential skin concerns equally, HydraFacial is a highly personalized remedy that seeks to specifically target the issues that reflect your unique needs. Your Aesthetics professional will start with a general protocol that is remarkably powerful all on its own and then add in ingredients intended to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, the subtle signs of aging, oily and congested skin, and dull complexions, in the combination that best applies to you. If you have sensitive skin, that will be accounted for too, so your treatment is always a pleasant experience with the best possible results.
