The amazing skincare treatment we are introducing in this article is called HydraFacial®.
When it comes to facial treatments, “No pain, No gain” seems the widely accepted rule. Between harsh lasers and lights or deep extractions, getting results (brighter, clearer, more radiant skin) always requires some discomfort.
When treatment comes along that’s rare enough to be both gentle AND effective, it gets my attention – and after trying it, I’m a believer. In just a matter of minutes, this skin-perfecting treatment removes dead skin and infuses your complexion with hydrating ingredients for a healthy, plumper, and more beautiful look overall. And it’s made for all skin types! What is this amazing treatment, you ask? The HydraFacial®.
The HydraFacial® is an exfoliating procedure that resurfaces and bathes your skin with antioxidants. The results are instant with no discomfort or downtime. It is completely customizable, so it’s best for skin health maintenance or treating specific skin conditions, depending on which skin solution is used. It can be a gentle but effective way to manage signs of aging or a powerful way to specifically target your skin issues, including:
- Sun damage, brown spots, and uneven skin tone
- Acne, blackheads, and whiteheads
- Early aging, fine lines, and wrinkles
What sets HydraFacial apart is a unique technology called Vortex-Fusion®, which replaces the harsh manual exfoliation and extractions common in other facials. The treatment is used to cleanse, exfoliate, extract impurities, and flood the skin with treatment serums. Vortex-Fusion® is similar to microdermabrasion, but instead of relying on an abrasive diamond tip to remove dead skin, it delivers various proprietary serums that help dislodge dead cells and excess sebum while a suctioning action removes them from the skin. The treatment concludes with a liberal application of serum rich in antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid, designed to maintain results and give skin that immediate healthy glow. Your skin will look and feel so clean; you’ll be astounded.
