What is Hydrafacial ?
All about Hydrafacial
Hydrafacial is a unique facial treatment that produces dramatic results that last for long. It works deep in the skin to improve the appearance and health of the skin.
Hydrafacial is an advanced no-invasive, skin resurfacing procedure that helps in the improvement of the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, blackheads, acnes, and skin pigmentation. The treatment includes four main steps-cleansing and exfoliation, acid peel, extractions, and serum application.
During exfoliation and cleansing, a special tool is used to open up the pores of the skin and to remove the dead skin cells away. Then a glycolic or salicylic acid peel is gently applied on the skin which helps loosen the impurities and debris from the pores without causing any skin irritation. The third step is the extraction during which vortex suction is used to clean out the pores and remove the blackheads. The fourth and the final stage involves hydration. Antioxidants and hyaluronic acid are introduced for nourishing and protecting the skin.
Hydrafacial is a mild treatment that causes minimal or no damage to the skin. The procedure is normally used in combination with chemical peels, LED lights, special skin care products and different types of tips, when a more aggressive treatment is required. The treatment lasts for about 30 minutes. Most patients are able to return to their normal activities immediately after the treatment.
The results are subtle and lend a freshness in the appearance and texture of the skin.
