HydraFacial for Aging Skin
Glancing through the billboards, fashion magazines, and skin care advertisements, we are bombarded with images of young, beautiful girls with flawless skin and toned bodies. In this ageist society, where older women are seldom seen on billboards or in advertisements, it gets difficult to gauge whether a certain product or service is even meant for older women or not. Even though the visuals and imagery of these advertisements are gorgeous and enticing, it does leave one wondering if these particular treatments or products are going to be effective on aging and mature skin.
One such treatment that has recently become the talk of the town is Hydrafacial. Even though this particular medifacial has taken the aesthetic industry by storm, there are still many people who feel apprehensive about whether this treatment would work well in dealing with fine lines and wrinkles. We are here to tell you that it does!
Hydrafacial treatment is a rejuvenating, non-invasive spa facial that exfoliates and hydrates the skin. It uses patented HydraFacial MD technology which cleanses, extracts, and vacuums out the majority of sebum and debris such as dirt and oil from your skin. Not only does it cleanse and extract any gunk or dirt, but it also douses your face in superb serums made from nourishing ingredients that target not only fine lines and wrinkles but also discolorations, oily skin, and enlarged pores.
In a study done by Bruce M Freedman called ‘Hydradermabrasion: an innovative modality for nonablative facial rejuvenation’, it was established that 20 women who underwent this treatment experienced a significant reduction in signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, clogged pores, and hyperpigmentation compared to women who received serums alone. Now, let’s see how exactly does hydrafacial do that.
Hydrafacial treatments are popular for their multi-step approach and usually last only 30 minutes which means that you can have glowing, radiant skin in just half an hour. These are the steps of this medifacial:
Step 1: Cleanse + Peel
The first step in this medifacial is the cleansing and peeling procedure. It uses a vortex cleansing and hydra peel tip which are gently pressed to your skin in a circular motion to gently open your pores and help remove dead skin cells and sebum trapped underneath your skin. Apart from this, a combination of salicylic and glycolic acid peel is applied to the skin to relax and clean the pores in the deepest layer of your skin.
Step 2: Extract + Hydrate
The second step is extraction followed by a hydration treatment. The extraction phase uses vacuum suction that is painless to remove debris from pores such as blackheads and other impurities in the skin. Next in line is hydration, where your provider will apply nourishing moisturizers to deeply nourish your skin, making it hydrated and moisturized.
Step 3: Fuse + Protect
Lastly, your aesthetician will use the Hydrafacial device to apply a relaxing antioxidant serum with peptides and other beneficial nutrients that will detoxify, rejuvenate, and protect your skin.
Benefits of Hydrafacials
Fades fine lines and wrinkles without acid or grit
Similar to acidic chemical peels, this medifacial also lifts and removes dead skin cells, diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while gritty dermabrasions blast away your dead skin cells. However, a Hydrafacial doesn’t use acids or grits to achieve these results. With the help of its unique vortex fusion technology, which uses a spiral suctioning of water, it gently accomplishes the same outcome without physically abrading the skin. This leads to no skin irritation and peeling. Simply, your wrinkles and fine lines eased away.
Lightens dark spots and Patches without Lasers
Troubled by sunspots, age spots, or dark patches on the skin? There’s no need to turn to photo facial treatments. Hydrafacial’s use of spiraling pulsating water gets deep into the surface of the skin to clean impurities, and gently exfoliate and resurface the skin. This water power also stimulates blood flow to the surface of the skin, enhancing the skin’s natural collagen production and cellular turnover.
Provides therapy for your pores
Our pores trap and hold dirt, oil, and bacteria which can cause discoloration, blemishes, and even premature wrinkling of the skin. Hydrafacial’s unique spiral suction slides water beneath the skin’s surface and lifts dirt and impurities out of your pores, evening out the skin tone and leaving you with a vibrant, healthy glow.
Sometimes hidden dirt beneath the skin’s surface enlarges the pores, giving the skin a mottled and uneven look. By removing the trapped dirt and impurities from your pores, this medifacial brightens your skin and improves its health.
Hydrates for Maximum Radiance
The whorling suction involved in hydrafacial’s vortex fusion technology does something that other treatments can’t do. It hydrates your skin directly. Personalized serums saturate your skin’s surface with antioxidants, peptides, and intense moisturizers that quench and nourish your skin, leaving it healthy, glowing, and radiant.
Does HydraFacial get rid of wrinkles and fine lines?
Hydrafacial treatments can greatly reduce signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, and hyperpigmentation. One of the main reasons behind the growing popularity of this medifacial is the customizable serum concoction that’s fused into the skin. This mixture contains components like:
- Antioxidants: Antioxidants fight skin aging by decreasing the tenderness of the skin. It also rectifies and eliminates fine lines and wrinkles by encouraging collagen production. Anti-oxidants are well known for fighting free radicals caused by stress, thereby improving the vitality of the skin.
- Hyaluronic acid: As we grow older, hyaluronic acid reserves in the body get depleted. The hyaluronic acid in the serum instantly helps in the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines by consistently keeping the skin hydrated. Hyaluronic acid also rejuvenates the skin’s outer layers, which makes the skin glowing, soft, and smooth.
- Peptides: Peptides are a naturally occurring form of amino acids that create beneficial proteins essential for collagen production in the skin. They also initiate healing, firmness, and elasticity in the skin making it look radiant and youthful.
Hydrafacial has quickly become a fan-favorite treatment due to its advanced equipment, customizable treatment, and guaranteed efficacy.
