Hydrafacial is a mild non-invasive, non-surgical treatment which causes minimal damage to the surface of the skin and is designed to enhance the skin by directly targeting free radical damage. This is the newest technology that has replaced microdermabrasion. It is a non-laser procedure that can improve fine lines, wrinkles, remove blackheads and impurities, and can also achieve great results with hyperpigmentation, making your skin instantly smoother and clearer.
It is safe for all skin types (including sensitive skin) and shows immediate results. Hydrafacial can treat the face, neck, chest, décolletage and hands. It is ideal for patients with mild sun-damage or post-Fraxel patients and can maintain the results you receive from lasers. The fact that there is no downtime and very little discomfort does not mean it isn’t effective. This unique treatment combines four steps into one thirty minute appointment.
Hydrafacial is targeted to your individual skin so a specific treatment kit will be chosen for you. It is a four-step process which takes approximately 30 minutes that includes:
Directly after the treatment it is normal to experience redness. This generally disappears within an hour, however may last slightly longer. It is normal to experience dryness and flakiness in the days after treatment. This will usually begin approximately 48 hours after the procedure and will last approximately 2 days. Not everyone peels from having a light skin peel, but if you do it should subside within 4 days.
