What is HydraFacial?
HydraFacial is a skin care treatment that exfoliates dead skin cells from the face and also helps to hydrate the skin. The way a HydraFacial treatment works is via a device used on the skin with a three-step process. The first step is similar to microdermabrasion which cleans the skin of debris and dirt. The next step consists of an exfoliation treatment. Finally, the skin is infused with hydrating skin care serums and moisturizers. This three step process can help give the skin a radiant glow.
What are the benefits of a HydraFacial?
HydraFacial is a dermatology procedure that can help individuals with acne prone skin, hyperpigmentation, oily skin and dark spots. Ultimately, the cleansing and exfoliating properties of a HydraFacial treatment can help the skin look healthier and brighter. For those looking for a quick skin rejuvenation treatment, a HydraFacial can help.
One of the good things about HydraFacial is that it is compatible with most skin types including darker skin such as African American, Asian or Latin American skin. Certain individuals should avoid the procedure (such as those with rosacea) but your dermatologist will advice you of this if this applies to you. If you do have specific skin concerns, when you have your initial consultation with Dr. Michele Green, this is the best time to discuss them.
Other benefits of HydraFacial is that there is no downtime meaning you can get back to your normal routine instantly. Once you’ve had the treatment you should also see immediate results. This is why this treatment is popular with people who are looking for some quick results, since HydraFacial is great for helping to improve general skin health, and for brightening up the skin tone.
How long do HydraFacial results last?
The visible improvements from a HydraFacial session should last around a week. Over time, if you continue to have regular sessions, then you may see some longer lasting improvements to your skin such as the reduction in fine lines and improved skin tone.
Because there is no downtime, and is the treatment is non-invasive, you can have a HydraFacial treatment on a regular basis. Many people opt for a monthly treatment but it can be carried out weekly if you prefer. Often HydraFacial treatments are used before a big event, such as a wedding, since it is designed to help instantly clean up and rejuvenate your skin.
HydraFacial treatments tend to work quite well on their own, but often people are interested in combining HydraFacial with other procedures, such as Botox or dermal fillers. Both of these additional treatments may be suitable to combine with HydraFacial treatments. Since a HydraFacial does not effectively tackle the appearance of fine lines and the more general signs of aging, if you wish to address these issues, you may opt for a treatment that can compliment the HydraFacial.
In addition to that, a HydraFacial can include LED (red or blue light) therapy, which can help with producing collagen for repair and replenishment of skin cells. Blue light therapy can also be used to treat some cases of acne, and has worked as an acne treatment option for some patients, but every case of course is different, and in all cases should be discussed with a board certified dermatologist first.
