HydraFacial® is a 5 step process that is revolutionizing facials, skincare and facial rejuvenation. The first step of the treatment is to exfoliate the skin.
HydraFacial® exfoliates the skin by using an Activ-4 serum that removes dead skin cells from the surface. The second step is a peel that further exfoliates the skin and removes impurities from the surface. The third step is extraction which uses a vortex action to remove impurities from below the surface of the skin. The fourth step is to apply a protective serum to the skin that nourishes and protects the newly purified surface. The final step is for you to continue caring for your skin at home.
HydraFacial® specifically targets the damage to the skin by utilizing the most effective tool in skincare: antioxidants. Antioxidants are the key to protecting your skin as well as healing your skin from damage already caused. Antioxidants strengthen the cells by containing toxins which improves skin cell function. They reason HydraFacial® is so effective is because it purifies and fortifies the skin by replenishing these antioxidants. These peptides are links of amino acids that boost collagen and elastin production which results in healthier and younger looking skin.
HydraFacial® actually stimulates your body’s own production of antioxidants by replenishing the ones lost. Additionally, two steps in the treatment involve Hyaluronic Acid which is naturally produced in the skin and gives the skin its volume. A lack of Hyaluronic Acid causes your skin to appear less elastic. HydraFacial® uses a unique low molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid that is applied deeply and has a uniquely hydrating effect on the skin.
HydraFacial® is a very affordable treatment and takes less than an hour in our office! The best part about it is that there is no down time; it can be done during a lunch hour! Call our office to schedule your appointment.
