If you have made your way to this page, you have probably heard about Hydrafacial therapy by now. Hydrafacial has taken the aesthetic world by a storm over the past 10 years. This technology is a very sophisticated mixture of hydradermabrasion that works very well with all skin types. In particular, patients with more pigmented skin, such as Asians, Middle Eastern people, Latinas, and people of color, may especially benefit from this technology as it tends to generate less hyperpigmentation and skin injury than traditional microdermabrasion and dermabrasion procedures. The Hydrafacial uses a vortex energy system that allows targeted removals of impurities, oils, and dead skin cells on the skin surface. One of the most gratifying components of this procedure is the tendency to collect this rubbish into the collecting basin that you can actually see. This sophisticated technology is computer-guided and can be tailored to everybody’s skin type. Additionally, there are multiple add-ons and boosts that allow this procedure to drastically improve one’s skin tone and radiance and as little as one session. Best of all, Hydrafacial therapy does not hurt and does not require sedation or numbing. Many of our patients describe the sensation as a gentle suction on the skin. It feels good for most patients. The entire procedure is performed in a spa-like atmosphere and patients have a very pleasant experience.
While the effects of the Hydrafacial are similar to any facial that you may have had, lasting about a week or so, there is evidence that demonstrates that Hydrafacial effects can be permanent.
Customized care with the Hydrafacial is based on the fact that there are multiple tips that can be used. There are multiple skin care solutions that are used to achieve the desired effect. Add-ons and boosts include antioxidant therapy, exfoliants, and hydrating serums. While the effects of the Hydrafacial are similar to any facial that you may have had, lasting about a week or so, there is evidence that demonstrates that Hydrafacial therapy actually smooth out the epidermis by treating the basal cell layer, and thickens the dermis allowing for refinement of tone and elimination of fine lines. These effects can be permanent, especially with multiple treatments. Moreover, Hydrafacial is great for treating acne and acne scars. Oily skin causes active acne, so elimination of these oils and breakdown of the debris can allow the pores to breathe better and eliminate clogging that leads to break out.
