If you’re not satisfied with your facial appearance but want a nonsurgical answer, our expert medical aestheticians at A Beautiful You Medical Spa, under the supervision of board-certified physician Dr. Kenneth Thompson, can provide you with a skin rejuvenation treatment that addresses a multitude of skin problems.
It’s called the HydraFacial®, and we have selected it for our patients because it has several advantages over traditional facials. Here’s how the HydraFacial works and why we love it so much.
What is a HydraFacial?
A HydraFacial thoroughly cleans, hydrates, and nourishes your skin through a three-step process.
Cleanse and gently exfoliate
First, the HydraFacial deep cleans and exfoliates your skin, but in a gentle manner. We move a patented wand across your skin that uses vortex technology to remove dirt and oil.
This process includes very gentle skin resurfacing. A mild peel sloughs off dead skin cells on your skin’s surface.
Extract and hydrate
A nozzle using patented vortex technology removes additional dirt and oil from your clogged pores. Any unsightly blackheads disappear. If you’re interested, we show you the debris collected during this step.
Nourish and hydrate
We blend ingredients that nourish your skin cells — antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid — and infuse your skin with rich serums and moisturizers to hold in hydration.
How the HydraFacial differs from traditional facials
As we mentioned, we love the HydraFacial for many reasons. Here are three of them:
You see beautiful results right away with the HydraFacial. You don’t experience the side effects like irritation or the extreme redness that a traditional facial can cause. When you walk out of our doors, your face feels fresh and rejuvenated. You’re ready for prime time.
Works for just about all skin types
Whether your skin is light or dark, and whether you’re old or young, the HydraFacial works for you. One caveat: If you have rosacea, this treatment may not be right for you.
Aids a wide variety of skin problems
The Hydrafacial’s benefits are multifaceted. Here are some of the many skin issues that this procedure addresses and improves:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Dark spots from sun damage; uneven skin tone
- Loose skin
- Rough skin
- Dull skin
- Large pores
- Dry skin
The Hydrafacial softens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, reduces the visibility of dark spots, and improves skin elasticity.
If your skin has a rough texture or dark spots from time spent in the sun, the HydraFacial smooths your skin and minimizes uneven tone. It leaves dull skin looking radiant.
