Every day we expose our skin to harsh elements – stress, pollution, toxins and most importantly sunlight. These elements, known as free radicals, are the root of skin damage and aging. They destroy the chemical makeup of our skin cells and prevent them from functioning properly, causing our skin to deteriorate.
During Skin Cancer Awareness Month this May, Aesthetics at Illinois Eye Center (IEC) wants to let you how you can rejuvenate your skin, protect it from UV light and free radicals, and reduce damage caused by the sun.
The HydraFacial® is one of many services offered by Aesthetics at IEC. 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.
What’s great about the HydraFacial is that it can be used anywhere on your skin – your face, back, shoulders or arms. With results similar to microdermabrasion, you’ll find this new approach to be a comfortable and refreshing alternative. The result is a cool and comfortable process that leaves skin clean, refined, moist and polished. HydraFacials are formulated to improve the appearance of early aging fine lines and wrinkles, sun-damaged skin, age spots, blackheads and whiteheads, enlarged pores, excess oil, hydration, puffy eyes and overall skin health.
The HydraFacial is not just a quick-fix procedure – it improves the overall quality of skin, helping to make it healthy in the long term.
