The Treatment Process
Your skin will be pre-cleansed with a gentle cleanser and any makeup will be removed during this time. The HydraFacial machine will be turned on and we will take photographs and create a skin profile.
The HydraFacial tool looks similar to a pen and has a patented vortex-fusion delivery system, which is a fancy way of saying it can extract and hydrate the skin at the same time!
The first step will be a deep cleansing, and you can expect to feel some suctioning and hydrating cleansing serum being applied all over the face. Next, will be a light 7.5% Glycolic peel. You can expect to feel a light suction and spreading of the peeling solution across face. These first two steps are going to uncover a new layer of skin with gentle exfoliation and relaxing resurfacing.
The second step will be for extractions. We will discuss with you prior to treatment any areas of congestion or common breakouts and extract accordingly. We will then examine and assess your skin for any other areas we see are in need of extraction. This step is important for removing debris from pores with painless suction. While we are extracting, we will also be nourishing with intense moisturizers that quench the skin.
The third step includes saturating the skin with antioxidants and peptides to maximize your glow and help preserve the skin.
The process described above is for a basic HydraFacial, but there are many add ons to enhance your results according to your specific skin needs.
