Whether your goal is to correct fine lines and wrinkles, improve elasticity and firmness, even out skin tone and improve vibrancy, reduce enlarged pores, improve skin texture, lighten brown spots, or treat oily or congested skin, HydraFacial MD offers a treatment for you.
Katie Bertsche, the Spa Manager for Twin City Plastic Surgery and Oasis Medical Spa, is very excited about this newest skin care treatment available since the beginning of May. “Anyone who follows beauty blogs or wants to know the latest trends in the beauty industry has heard of HydraFacial. It is one of the most talked about treatments these days because it really works!”
The HydraFacial MD therapy uses the latest developments in skin care to clean, hydrate, and protect skin. The 3-step treatment cleanses, exfoliates, and extracts to get rid of impurities and dead skin cells, and infuses the skin with vital nutrients, antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid to protect and nourish the skin from the inside out.
The HydraFacial MD’s three-step system can be completed in as little as a half hour. According to the HydraFacial website (hydrafacial.com), Step 1 cleanses and peels impurities thereby uncovering a new layer of skin with gentle exfoliation and relaxing resurfacing. Excess oil and debris is extracted from pores using painless suction in Step 2, then the skin is nourished with skin solutions to address specific skin concerns. Step 3 saturates the skin’s surface with antioxidants and peptides to fuse and protect, locking in all the beneficial serums included in the process.
“The benefit of the HydraFacial MD system over treatments such as microdermabrasion is that it can be used for any skin condition. Microdermabrasion can be harsh for some skin types, and only treats limited skin issues,” Katie explains. “This is safe enough to have a treatment every week, based on the goals for your skin concerns.” Another great benefit is that there is no downtime—clients can put on makeup and resume their normal activities immediately after a session.
A typical protocol would be for someone to come in every 4-6 weeks for preventive treatment. A basic treatment takes 30-40 minutes. Clients can request to have add-ons, or “boosters,” depending on the focus of the treatment.
The boosters that can be used during a treatment include Growth Factor, which minimizes fine lines and wrinkles; Britenol, brightener for pigmentation, sun spots, and improved radiance; and Dermabuilder, which minimizes signs of aging and recharges skin with a patented combination of peptides. Clarifying treatments for acne and red and blue LED light treatments that will decrease inflammation or redness in the skin and kill acne-causing bacteria respectively are also available.
