No matter your age, ethnicity, skin type, or specific skin needs, hydration is the foundation of any healthy skin regimen. Without proper hydration, the skin becomes dry, cracked, aged, and more likely to be subjected to the various harms that threaten our complexion daily. Unfortunately, skin hydration can be a surprisingly tricky undertaking, with many products and procedures promising lasting benefits only to fall short and cause unpredictable and unstable outcomes.
HydraFacial is a unique skin offering that not only boosts natural skin hydration, but also acts to rejuvenate the skin through cleansing, extracting, and providing antioxidant protection.
How the HydraFacial Treatment Works
HydraFacial is a non-invasive procedure that pairs deep hydration with a vacuuming, vortex technology to rid the skin and pores of unwanted debris. As the device passes over the skin, it delivers a steady stream of liquid infused with propriety serums. These serums are, in turn, infused with powerful ingredients such as antioxidants, vitamins, and acids, depending on your specific skin needs. This multi-step process of cleaning the skin while providing nutrients and hydration has profound effects, and can be used to treat a variety of conditions.
Which Conditions Can Be Treated with the HydraFacial?
Many of the issues that plague our skin are caused by a combination of environmental stressors and biological processes. Though biological processes are more involved and difficult to address, environmental stressors can be avoided and remedied rather easily with the correct treatments. For example, by ridding the skin of harmful bacteria and dead skin cells, acne can be greatly improved. In addition, the potent antioxidants and other ingredients delivered through HydraFacial Serums can improve various other conditions, such as fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and brown spots.
Although the results of the HydraFacial are compelling, the procedure itself is gentle. As HydraFacial passes over the body, the outside layers of the skin are left unharmed by the procedure. In addition, the hydration provided through the treatment leaves the skin feeling soft and supple, while making lasting change deep with the skin.
Using Acids to Improve Skin Structure
Some of the ingredients provided through the HydraFacial serums are naturally occurring acids such as salicylic and hyaluronic. These ingredients can be found throughout the body and are essential for maintaining healthy skin structure. Both acids help secure skin moisture while promoting internal healing processes that help rejuvenate tired, dry, and aged skin. In fact, both salicylic acid and hyaluronic acid can be found throughout the skincare community as the active ingredients for so many topical and injectable offerings.
