Am I a HydraFacial Candidate?
HydraFacial is one of the most popular skin treatments that we offer at Glamour Plastic Surgery & Med Spa. The treatment is a non-invasive option for patients suffering from a wide variety of skin conditions. If you’re not familiar with HydraFacial, you’re probably wondering if it’s a good option for you. Here are some things you should know about the treatment before scheduling your first appointment.
What Skin Conditions Can HydraFacial Treat?
One of the biggest benefits of HydraFacial treatment is its versatility. Most skin types and conditions can be improved by removing dead skin and debris and thoroughly hydrating the skin, which is what HydraFacial is designed to do. HydraFacial can be beneficial for skin types including acne-prone, oily, dry, combination, and sensitive. Common reasons to seek HydraFacial include signs of aging like wrinkles or fine lines, dry and dehydrated skin, acne, or a dull or uneven skin tone. Patients of all ages, from teens to elderly clients, can benefit from HydraFacial.
At Glamour Plastic Surgery & Med Spa, our team offers custom HydraFacial treatments with special considerations for common skin concerns. Our menu includes:
- Signature HydraFacial, for a deep cleanse through a fast treatment. This treatment includes blue and red LED light therapy for advanced treatment of aging signs.
- Clarifying HydraFacial, which is ideal for oily or acne-prone skin. This enhances the HydraFacial’s cleansing component to more deeply clean the pores. In addition, blue LED light therapy is used to prevent bacteria growth.
- Deluxe HydraFacial, which uses the same steps as our Signature HydraFacial plus a ZO Skin Health Masque.
- Platinum HydraFacial, which adds Venus Legacy skin tightening treatment for the neck and decollete to the Deluxe HydraFacial package.
In addition to these options, any HydraFacial can be enhanced with lymph drainage, dermaplaning, LightStim PhotoMasque, or a SkinBetter Science Peel. Our knowledgeable team will recommend the best treatment options for you depending on your skin type and concerns.
How Does HydraFacial Work?
HyrdaFacial works by first thoroughly cleansing the skin, removing dead skin cells, and extracting debris using a small handpiece. At the same time that these impurities are removed from the skin’s surface, the HydraFacial system delivers custom formulas of nourishing serums. These are designed using high-quality ingredients to suit the client’s skin type and concerns and are what make the HydraFacial so popular and effective.
Combine HydraFacial with Other Treatments
Many patients choose to combine their HydraFacial with other treatments to enhance their results. While HydraFacial is known to be highly effective, the results can be improved through a careful combination of procedures.
One option is BTL Exilis. This radiofrequency treatment serves to tighten the skin by stimulating collagen and elastin production and is frequently used to treat loose skin as a result of aging. This makes it a great complementary procedure to a HydraFacial in treating aging signs like fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin.
Another popular procedure to combine with HydraFacial is an IPL Photofacial. IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light, Photofacial is also called “flash lamp therapy” or “photorejuvenation.” It uses non-ablative technology to heat melanin within the skin, resulting in a more even skin tone and texture overall.
This makes it a great complementary procedure to a HydraFacial in treating skin concerns like fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, hyperpigmentation, moderate acne and acne scars, rosacea, melasma and more.
