The HydraFacial can be used to treat numerous skin concerns such as hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, skin texture and tone, overall firmness, and elasticity. However, this innovative treatment is particularly well suited for individuals with acne-prone skin and those with acne scarring. The simple four-step process effectively removes impurities that clog pores and lead to chronic acne.
If you suffer from breakouts or acne scarring, the HydraFacial can help restore a healthy balance to your complexion while giving you radiant skin.
A Deep-Cleaning For Clogged Pores
Traditional facials often involve painful manual extractions, which can be increasingly painful if you’re struggling with skin sensitivity from breakouts. The HydraFacial cleanses pores and removes impurities without causing skin trauma or inflammation.
Step one: CLEANSING & EXFOLIATION
Dead skin cells are gently exfoliated to reveal healthy, new skin. Simultaneously, a serum containing lactic acid, glucosamine, and many botanical extracts is delivered powerfully to cleanse and nourish the skin. The cleansing and the exfoliating process is gentle and can be compared to the feeling of using a facial brush, such as a Clarisonic.
Step two: GLYSAL ACNE PEEL
The second step is the Vortex-Peel. By applying a blend of salicylic and glycolic acids, the solution improves acne. This step also helps regulate the oil levels caused by excess sebum while reducing discoloration and evening the skin tone. This peel is incredibly useful in dislodging the stubborn dirt, debris, and sebum that contribute to clogged pores. Not only does the glysal acne peel deeply penetrate to treat existing acne, but it also helps to prevent future breakouts.
Step three: EXTRACTION
Traditional facials utilize manual extractions, while the HydraFacial uses the Vortex-Extraction nozzle tip to suction out any remaining blackheads and impurities gently. This step works to deep clean pores to prepare the skin for the treatment’s final step with no redness or irritation.
Step four: HYDRATION
The HydraFacial Vortex-Fusion nozzle tip distributes an Antiox+ serum composed of antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid. The application of this medical-grade serum improves skin hydration and improves skin elasticity. By combining hyaluronic acid and the most advanced and powerful antioxidants, peptides, and multi-peptides to replenish the skin, the skin is left hydrated, plumped up, and optimum skin health.
Extremely Effective For Ending the Active-Acne Style
The HydraFacial is suitable for all skin types and has multiple skin benefits. This includes reducing congestion by detoxifying and eliminating buildup in the pores. Each step of the HydraFacial process is essential for helping clear acne and problems within the skin. Patients are left with results that include decreased future breakouts and a more clear complexion.
Avoiding Breakouts After Treatment
The HydraFacial is non-invasive, with minimal to no downtime. Patients dealing with breakouts and congested skin generally tend to have a few breakouts pop up after their HydraFacial, but this is considered a good sign. Ridding the skin of underlying congestion is the only way to heal clogged pores and reduce irritation that leads to breakouts.
Consistent Maintenance Is Key
When it comes to treating any major skin concerns, consistency is the key to see the most effective long-term results. Incorporating a HydraFacial into your routine skincare regimen is a great way to maintain the skin. HydraFacials can be useful every 4-8 weeks as needed.
Laser Aesthetic Center offers other treatments specifically targeting acne scarring for patients struggling with this issue. Ultherapy can be paired with microneedling to accomplish effective acne scar removal. Ultherapy delivers ultrasound energy deep within the skin to stimulate collagen production and improve scarring from within. Microneedling addresses the skin’s superficial layer to help break up scar tissue and stimulate new healing. By combining these treatments, we can improve and diminish acne scars to improve skin texture, tone, and evenness.
