With today’s busy schedules and hectic lifestyles, it’s easy to let skin care fall by the wayside. Extensive spa treatments, while effective, tend to be lengthy and difficult to fit into an already packed schedule. This is where the HydraFacial MD procedure shines. At Terrasse Aesthetic Surgery, we offer the HydraFacial MD, a comprehensive skincare treatment that not only deeply cleanses skin, but also stimulates the natural restorative processes in the
tissues in less than half the time it takes for an all-out spa treatment. Below are just a few reasons why you’ll love getting a HydraFacial MD.
The “Lunchtime” Facial
While in-depth spa facials can deliver amazing results, the time investment and skin irritation that sometimes follow often require you to block out large portions of the day, not to mention additional recovery time. An advanced HydraFacial procedure delivers amazing results without harsh peels or ablative lasers. In a nutshell, a HydraFacial MD consists of four distinct treatments, each of which addresses your skin’s essential needs. In spite of the scope of benefits from the process, the entire procedure takes less than an hour to complete, from start to finish. This is how HydraFacial got the nickname, the “lunchtime” facial.
Treats a Wide Range of Skin Problems
You can expect to see noticeable results after just one HydraFacial treatment. The procedure deep cleans, exfoliates, extracts and replenishes the skin, leaving behind a smooth, taut surface that reveals your skin’s natural, radiant glow. This multi-faceted treatment approach not only improves the skin’s health and appearance but also treats a wide range of skin problems, including:
● Dry patches
● Oily skin
● Brown spots
● Fine lines
● Uneven skin tone
An All-In-One Skincare System
The HydraFacial MD protocol uses a machine equipped with a handheld device that delivers all four treatments using specialized HydroPeel tips. HydroPeel tips serve multiple purposes: they break up dead skin layers, clear out clogged pores and bathe the skin’s surface in replenishing serums. The device also has a built-in vacuum mechanism that removes dead cells, dirt and debris in a tidy, efficient manner along the way.
HydraFacial – Four Treatments in One Procedure
Deep-Cleaning and Exfoliation
Dead skin cells, oil and dirt can create the types of imbalances that eventually develop into full-blown skin problems. For this reason, a HydraFacial starts by opening up and cleaning out the pores of the skin. The handheld device uses a technology called Vortex cleansing, which is a deplaning tip. The tip essentially breaks up surface debris, while the vacuum component suctions it away. This part of the procedure stimulates healthy blood circulation so that
the skin can get the levels of oxygen and nutrients it needs.
Chemical Peel Treatment
If you’re wincing at the thought of a chemical peel and the stinging and burning that results, please don’t! You’ll be pleased to know that a HydraFacial peel produces little to no discomfort. The pain brought on by traditional chemical peels results from a high acid concentration. The HydraFacial chemical peel combines glycolic and salicylic acids to produce a low acid concentration that draws dirt and debris out of the deeper layers of the skin. This particular treatment is an excellent choice for treating acne by eliminating the debris that causes pustules to form.
The Extraction Treatment
The extraction treatment part of a HydraFacial uses a nozzle tip attached to the handheld device. The nozzle tip produces a powerful suction effect that extracts any remaining dirt and debris from deep inside your pores. This treatment works especially well after the chemical peel, as the peel has already cleared away surface debris and opened up the pores. The suctioning effect is powerful enough to extract blackheads and any other impurities that the
chemical peel may have missed.
After your skin has undergone the deep-cleaning effects of deplaning, peeling and extraction, the HydraFacial replenishing step delivers essential nutrients to nourish your fresh, new skin. This part of the procedure bathes the skin cells in an antioxidant-based serum that helps protect it from harmful, environmental elements. A collagen-building serum designed to stimulate the skin’s natural collagen-producing processes is also applied. By the end of your
HydraFacial MD procedure, you’ll see noticeably smoother skin that glows from within.
Customized to Meet Your Skincare Needs
For patients with specific skincare needs, the HydraFacial system offers additional booster serum treatments, each of which targets different skincare needs. While the standard HydraFacial procedure produces dramatic results on its own, the booster serums further enhance the rejuvenating effects of a HydraFacial. Booster serum treatments to choose from include:
● Britenol boost – designed to create an even complexion by targeting and reducing dark spots
● Dermabuilder boost – reduces signs of aging by supporting the skin’s natural restorative and repair processes
● Growth factor boost – targets fine lines and wrinkles to restore a smooth, taut skin surface
