It’s not uncommon for facial skin to change dramatically over time. The development of brown spots, red patches and oily or clogged pores are often the result of excessive exposure to UV rays, fluctuating hormone levels and natural aging. The appearance of fine lines and wrinkles occurs as less collagen is produced, leaving facial skin with reduced overall elasticity. For many people, these changes are an unwelcome sight and renew a desire to find a way to both refresh and rejuvenate skin. While many patients choose chemical peels or microdermabrasion to give skin a deep cleanse and aesthetic boost, HydraFacial is an innovative approach to facial skin rejuvenation that delivers successful results without the harsh side effects.
HydraFacial can be administered in the comfort of an attending physician’s office and doesn’t require any type of local anesthetic. HydraFacial works on a system of hydration, extraction and fusion for a comprehensive approach to skin care. The entire procedure can be successfully performed in 30 minutes and is comprised of three steps. Using a hand-held applicator with a spiraling head and nozzle, the attending physician will first run the brush gently over the entirety of the face to remove dead surface-level skin cells and open up pores. Next, deep-pore debris and impurities including black heads are removed through the suction nozzle. Finally, an antioxidant-rich serum is applied to the surface of the skin to promote collagen production and rejuvenate surface cells.
While it is recommended that most patients have HydraFacial treatments at regular intervals to promote the most successful, long-term results, patients who elect for a single session are generally pleased to see an immediate difference in overall skin brightening, cleansing and hydration. Regularly scheduled HydraFacial treatments have been proven to reduce the appearance of brown spots, redness, clogged pores, fine-lines around the mouth and eyes as well as wrinkles. Where chemical peels commonly leave a patient’s face feeling raw, sore or tingling for a significant amount of time following treatment, patients who elect HydraFacial report feeling refreshed after receiving treatment and do no experience any notable negative side effects. HydraFacial is a treatment option that is safe and effective on all skin types.
