We are proud to announce that we are now offering a new kind of facial experience for our patients – HydraFacials. This unique procedure provides a list of benefits for your skin health in a gentle and effective way but how is it different from a traditional facial?

What makes a HydraFacial different?

Unlike traditional facials, a HydraFacial provides your skin with a gentle cleansing and rejuvenating experience without any pain during or after the treatment. This treatment is a great option for people with a wide range of skin concerns at different ages, giving your skin many benefits.

The process gently exfoliates, removes dead skin cells, as well as surface gunk. This step provides a clean and smooth surface for the rest of the treatment. From there, debris is extracted from your pores. The traditional extraction process in facials often results in pain and redness. Force from pressing and squeezing the skin is needed for proper extraction in other facials but the HydraFacial technology gently extracts without this force. An exciting part for most patients is the ability to see how much was removed from your pores by inspecting the “Hydradermabrasion device” afterwards.

Once the pores are clear, hydrating serums with optional boosters are infused into your skin. This serum reduces the size of your freshly cleared pores while rehydrating the skin after the extraction of natural oils. The serums and optional boosters leave your skin glowing, hydrated, and protected. The last step involves the addition of a protective serum. This will protect your pores from instantly attracting dirt and other impurities after your procedure.

The foundation for beautiful and healthy skin is hydration. HydraFacials remove impurities from the skin, provide necessary hydration and do it all without irritating your skin – creating the perfectly balanced treatment.

With proper upkeep, your skin will remain glowing although continued treatments are recommended to maintain and to maximize your facial skin health.

Why should I get a HydraFacial?

Many of our patients contact us with different concerns about their skin health. Whether they want to reduce fine lines and other signs of aging or clear out clogged pores, our patients have experienced positive results that cover many concerns after a HydraFacial treatment.

If you are looking to address fine lines & wrinkles, elasticity & firmness, even tone & vibrancy, skin texture, brown spots, oily & congested skin, and enlarged pores, a HydraFacial will provide an excellent solution. Other treatments typically target one or a couple of concerns for each patient while HydraFacials improve many skin concerns at once. If there is a concern you want us to focus on more than others, let us know and we will provide you with the option to add a booster serum to the regular treatment.

What is a bonus booster?

A bonus booster is a great solution for patients who have skin concerns that may not be completely remedied from a traditional HydraFacial. These serums tailor the facial more to your skin priorities. The current available options include:

  • Brightalive Boost: Brighten your skin by reducing discoloration.
  • Growthfactor Boost: Increase cellular growth to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Dermabuilder Boost: Address fine lines by creating skin firmness while correcting skin tone and texture.
  • Britenol Boost: Reduce the appearance of dark spots and sun damage revealing a more even complexion.
What if my skin is oily?

The name of this procedure may cause alarm amongst oilier skin types who may not believe they need a hydrating facial but we want to clear up this hesitation.

Oily skin is often worsened by over-drying the skin. Many of our patients have admitted to washing their face more than twice a day in combination of using harsh chemicals to draw out the oil. While these methods may provide some results, they hinder the opportunity for even better skin. Oil is one of the ways our skin protects itself and by over-drying it, your skin will send and signal to glands to create more oil. This then creates a vicious cycle of over-drying and oil production which may result in skin damage. Oil, dead skin cells, and other debris can clog pores, resulting in irritated skin or pimples.

A HydraFacial gently and effectively cleans the skin by removing dead skin and clearing pores. It then replaces hydration to your pores and finishes off with a protective layer. Rather than removing surface oil with creams, toners, and face wash, a HydraFacial will remove the harmful bits from deep within your pores. You will notice less oil production with HydraFacial treatments.
