Highlighted in various national magazines and journals, the award-winning HydraFacial MD® combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration and antioxidant protection for smooth and glowing skin. This hydrating and non-irritating treatment is perfect for all skin types and helps reduce the appearance of aging. Hydration is the foundation of healthy, radiant skin. The HydraFacial MD® targets fine lines and wrinkles, congested and enlarged pores, oily or acne-prone skin, hyperpigmentation and brown spots. The procedure is fast and effective with most people reporting that it feels like a cool paintbrush smoothing over their face. Both men and women love how they look and feel after their treatment.
The HydraFacial MD® is
completed in four steps:
Step 1: Cleansing and Exfoliation. Pores are opened and dead skin cells are removed to reveal healthy skin.
Step 2: Acid peel. This gentle peel loosens dirt and debris from pores without irritation.
Step 3: Extraction. Instead of performing manual extractions, the technician uses something rather elaborately called a vortex-extraction nozzle that acts as a vacuum to deeply clean the pores.
Step 4: Hydration. A vortex-fusion tool infuses an antioxidant and collagen rich serum into the skin to promote elasticity and hydration.
This efficient, noninvasive, and highly effective skin care treatment generally only takes 20-30 minutes and has no side effects. Your skin will feel and look rejuvenated and refreshed.
The HydraFacial MD® is quickly becoming a highly sought after cosmetic service. Below are five reasons celebrities rely on this procedure as part of their skin care routine:
Hydration, deep cleansing for pores & exfoliation.
The unique HydroPeel® tip used during your treatment gently cleanses and exfoliates pores with its spiral design to dislodge impurities in the skin. Simultaneously, it is introducing the hydrating solution packed with antioxidants.
The anti-aging power of the HydraFacial MD® comes with its deep exfoliation and antioxidant serums. Exfoliation increases cell turn-over in the skin, helping to stimulate collagen production. Antioxidants, as we all know, are a powerhouse of health and beauty. Introducing these agents after a deep exfoliation helps to seal in their free-radical fighting properties, ultimately helping to alleviate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Improve skin texture and refine pores.
A consistent deep exfoliation of the skin will help improve the texture of your skin. While results are immediate after your first treatment, a series of HydraFacial MD® treatments will show a sustained improvement in skin texture, evening out trouble areas and refining the pores as well.
Balancing oily / acne prone skin.
While it may sound odd that a treatment focusing on hydrating the skin will help with oily or acne prone skin types, the HydraFacial MD® offers remarkable results due to its exfoliation capabilities. Unclogging pores of impurities will help reset your skin, relieving it of acne symptoms and removing excess oil buildup.
