A: The HydraFacial treatment is a new breakthrough in aesthetic technology. It takes its name from the root word Hydrate; “to cause to take up moisture”. This ability to moisturize the skin separates the HydraFacial from all other skin resurfacing procedures. The HydraFacial treatment removes dead skin cells and extracts impurities while simultaneously bathing the new skin with cleansing, hydrating and moisturizing serums. The treatment is soothing, refreshing, non-irritating and immediately effective.
Q: Why is HydraFacial good for my skin?
A: Hydration is the foundation of healthy, radiant skin. Irritation of the skin has been proven to increase signs of aging. The HydraFacial is a hydrating and non-irritating treatment.
Q: Am I a candidate for this treatment?
A: The HydraFacial treatment is designed for all skin types. Even the most sensitive skin easily tolerates the HydraFacial treatment. Your physician or skincare professional may choose specific treatment serums and/or customize the treatment for your unique skin conditions and needs. Consult your physician or skincare professional for a skin evaluation and sensitivity test.
Q: How long does the treatment take?
A: The HydraFacial treatment is a fast, efficient treatment that takes as little as 15 minutes.
Q: Is there any downtime or pain involved?
A:The treatment is often described as a feeling like “a cool paintbrush moving over the face”. You may put on make-up and return to your normal activities right after the treatment since there is no downtime.
Q: What results may be expected?
A:Many people report seeing visible skin refinement and an even, radiant skin tone after just one treatment.
Q: How long do the results last?
A: The smooth results and hydration may last 5 to 7 days or even longer.
Q: How many treatments are needed to see results?
A: A series of 6 treatments is recommended for improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne and oily skin. After your first series of treatments, you may want to maintain your results with a HydraFacial treatment every 2 to 4 weeks.
