Spring is the season of rejuvenation and fresh, new beginnings. And that means it’s an ideal time for a Hydrafacial®, a unique skin rejuvenation treatment designed to reduce or eliminate signs of aging, excessive sun exposure, uneven tone, and rough texture, so you’re left with skin that feels and looks as fresh as the spring.
Hydrafacials work by reducing or eliminating many of the skin changes associated with aging and sun exposure, leaving your skin looking and feeling fresher, healthier, and more youthful. And what’s really great — Hydrafacial achieves all these benefits (and more) without surgery, injections, anesthesia, or downtime. At Nu Image Aesthetics & Wellness Institute, we offer Hydrafacial treatments for both women and men, helping every patient look great and feel more confident about their appearance. Here’s what you should know about Hydrafacials.
Hydrafacial basics: How it works
A Hydrafacial is a facial — and then some. Billed as a sort of "hydradermabrasion," the Hydrafacial system uses a proprietary “vortex” delivery system to deliver a powerful, yet gentle, stream of water (and additional elements, like moisturizers and nutrients) to your skin. While the Hydrafacial system can achieve a lot of the same benefits as a traditional microdermabrasion treatment, because it uses water instead of harsh abrasives, it won’t damage or irritate your skin.
The Hydrafacial technique actually comprises three separate treatments:
- Cleanse and peel gives your skin a pore-deep cleansing and removes dead skin cells to reveal fresher, brighter, healthier skin
- Extract and hydrate uses gentle suction to extract dirt, clogged oils, and other debris from inside your pores, then floods your skin with hydrating compounds to help nourish and replenish skin
- Fuse and protect gives your skin a good dose of essential antioxidants to ward off sun damage and other toxic exposures, and adds in important peptides to battle signs of aging while sealing and protecting your skin
As each step is performed, it prepares the way for the next step, ensuring your skin is able to take in as much nourishment and moisture as possible for maximum benefits. Taken together, the three steps of a Hydrafacial treatment can be especially effective in reducing the signs of aging, including:
- Age spots or brown spots
- Enlarged pores
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- Dull skin tone
- Loose, sagging skin
- Skin that’s oily, prone to breakouts and blackheads, or congested
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Damage associated with too much sun exposure
Plus, within each of those steps, there are custom options available to ensure your Hydrafacial treatment is optimized to help you achieve the best results for your skin and your needs.
Benefits of Hydrafacial
Hydrafacial is a popular facial treatment for both women and men, and teens too — and for lots of reasons. Here are four:
It’s good for pretty much all skin types and all skin issues
Hydrafacial is one of the few skin care treatments that’s a good fit for just about everyone, including teens with acne, adults with occasional breakouts, people with sun damage or age-related changes like fine lines and wrinkles, and men and women with age spots and uneven tone and texture.
Treatment is super comfortable
Most patients report the Hydrafacial experience as being very relaxing. There’s no need for any type of numbing, and there’s no downtime afterward, so it’s easy to fit a treatment into your routine no matter how busy your schedule may be.
Extractions don’t hurt
If you’ve ever had a professional facial, you may have had manual extractions to remove blackheads, clogged oils, or other debris stuck deep in your pores. And you may have found those extractions to be pretty uncomfortable. With Hydrafacial, you can get all the benefits of extractions — deep clean, unclogged pores, and clearer skin — without the pain. Instead, the Hydrafacial vortex technology coaxes debris from your pores with special solutions designed to dissolve oil without being harsh to your skin. Plus, the pulsating effects of the Hydrafacial also help dislodge debris while helping you relax and unwind.
It's just 30 minutes
That's right. Your Hydrafacial treatment takes just a half hour to perform from start to finish. You can have a treatment during your lunch hour and start enjoying the benefits of clearer, brighter, healthier-looking skin right away.
