What is HydraFacial™?
HydraFacial™ is the NEW breakthrough in aesthetic technology. The HydraFacial™ takes its name from the root word Hydrate: “cause to take up moisture”. It is the ability to moisturize the skin that separates the HydraFacial™ from all other skin resurfacing procedures. The HydraFacial™ removes dead skin cells and impurities while simultaneously bathing the new skin with cleansing, hydrating and moisturizing skin solutions. The treatment is soothing, refreshing, non-irritating and immediately effective.
Why is HydraFacial™ good for my skin?
Hydration is the foundation of healthy, radiant skin. Irritaton of the skin has been proven to increase the signs of aging. The HydraFacial™ is a hydrating and non-irritating treatment.
Am I a candidate for the HydraFacial™ treatment?
The HydraFacial™ treatment is designed for all skin types. Even the most sensitive skin easily tolerates the HydraFacial™ treatment. Your skincare professional may custom-blend the treatment serums for your unique skin conditions. Consult your physician or skin care professional for a skin evaluation and sensitivity test.
How long does the treatment take? Is there any downtime or pain?
The HydraFacial™ treatment is a fast, efficient treatment that takes as little as 15 minutes. There is no discomfor during the procedure - it is often described as feeling a like a “cool paintbursh moving slowly over the face”. You may put on make-up and return to your normal activities right after the treatment since there is no downtime.
What results may be expected? How many HydraFacial™ treatments are needed to see results? How long do the results last?
Many people report seeing visible skin refinement and an even, radiant skin tone after just one treatment. The smooth results and hydration may last for five to seven days or even longer. A series of six treatments, one treatment each week, is recommended for improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and oily/acne-prone skin. Afteryour first series of treatments, you may want to maintain your results with HydraFacial™ treatment every two to four weeks.
