Wrinkles, acne breakouts and dull skin aren’t exactly desirable and can make social events feel not as fun as they should be because of a lack of self-confidence in your appearance. Thankfully, it is possible to restore the quality of your skin without interfering with your work schedule or active lifestyle, revitalizing your image into one that is fresh with vitality.
HydraFacial is a multi-step treatment process that exfoliates and rejuvenates the skin without the need for downtime. Please contact Newport Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Associates to schedule a HydraFacial consultation. We can be reached at 949-251-1502, or you can visit our contact page.
What Is a HydraFacial?
A HydraFacial is a hydradermabrasion treatment that combines hydration, serum infusion, cleansing, exfoliation and extraction. The treatment involves dispensing high-powered water and air to the skin to remove impurities. A HydraFacial features several different ‘HydraPeel’ attachments. The attachments are used to suction dead skin cells, deliver a mild chemical peel and infuse the skin with anti-aging ingredients. These ingredients include a mix of antioxidants, peptides and hyaluronic acid that help to soothe and hydrate.
HydraFacial is a gentle treatment that is suitable for most skin types. The treatment can improve specific cosmetic concerns, but it can increase the skin’s overall health if performed regularly. The treatment stimulates the body’s collagen production, which is a structural protein that helps maintain skin firmness and elasticity. Additionally, HydraFacial is a customizable treatment that can be adjusted to suit an individual’s skin concerns and sensitivity.
What Can a HydraFacial Treat?
A HydraFacial is an ideal treatment for the following cosmetic concerns:
- Fines lines and wrinkles
- Dull skin
- Enlarged pores
- Congested pores
- Oily skin
- Brown spots
- Uneven skin tone
- Skin elasticity and firmness
HydraFacial is a particularly beneficial treatment if you seek to look your best just in time for a special event. The no-downtime treatment can have your skin looking more youthful and free of imperfections for events such as a wedding, birthday or anniversary. Patients are usually recommended to have the treatment performed one week before an event to attain optimal results.
The treatment is also an ideal way to boost the health of your skin if performed regularly or can be used as a way to give your skin a clean slate – making it more susceptible to the rejuvenating effects of skincare products.
Who Is a Good HydraFacial Candidate?
HydraFacial is a gentle treatment suitable for men and women of nearly any skin tone, type and age. HydraFacial is among the best options for sensitive skin types compared to other, more abrasive skin rejuvenation treatments. However, a few contraindications may prevent you from being a suitable candidate for the treatment. For example, the treatment should not be performed on patients with cancer, active herpes or severe cystic acne. HydraFacial should also not be performed on women who are currently pregnant or breastfeeding because of the chemicals used in the solutions.
During an initial consultation with a provider at Newport Plastic and Reconstructive Associates, the quality of your skin will be assessed to determine if HydraFacial will be a suitable treatment. Your medical history will also be discussed to ensure candidacy.
What Happens During the HydraFacial Treatment Process?
A HydraFacial can essentially be broken down into four steps. There is only one handheld device used during the treatment, but several attachments will be utilized to complete the HydraFacial process. After your treatment, your skin will feel refreshed and glowing. The four steps of a HydraFacial are:
Vortex Cleansing: During this step, the handheld device is moved back and forth across the surface of your skin to cleanse and exfoliate the top layer. Vortex Cleansing removes dead skin cells and other impurities to reveal a brighter, healthier complexion. This step is also essential because it allows better penetration of the chemical peel into the deeper layers of skin.
Chemical Peel Application: This step involves applying salicylic and glycolic acid evenly across the skin. These ingredients reach the deep layers of skin to further exfoliation and to unclog the pores. You may experience a slight tingling sensation during the step, but this is a generally tolerable experience.
Vortex Extraction: A tube is attached to the handheld device during this step. This tube will essentially act as an extraction tool. Your provider will glide the device evenly across your skin, during which it will suction blackheads and excess debris from your pores. Vortex Extraction makes your skin more susceptible to the serums that are later applied.
Vortex-Fusion: The final step involves moving the handheld device across your skin once more, this time to infuse your skin with a serum that consists of antioxidants, amino acids, peptides, among other enriching ingredients. This serum will penetrate the deep layers of your skin and can be tailored to accommodate your unique cosmetic concerns.
When your HydraFacial is complete, your provider will apply a moisturizer and sunscreen to protect your skin as it heals.
What Results Can I Expect After a HydraFacial?
HydraFacial is a no-downtime treatment. However, your skin may appear red and tight after the treatment, but this will go away after a short period.
HydraFacial produces immediate results after one treatment session. Your skin will be visibly brighter, softer and have a more youthful glow. In addition, certain cosmetic concerns will be visibly improved, depending on which serum is infused into your skin during the final step of your HydraFacial treatment. Results for a HydraFacial typically last for five to seven days. However, it is possible to maintain your results by undergoing subsequent treatment sessions. Often, patients undergo a HydraFacial treatment once a month and essentially incorporate it into their regular skincare routine.
