One of the most common and frustrating skin conditions experienced by people of all ages and walks of life is acne. Having pimples can affect your self-esteem. What makes matters worse is that pimples can be difficult to treat. Over-the-counter products do little for severe cases of acne, and prescription products like Accutane can have unwanted side effects. Other treatments may be too harsh or irritating for sensitive, acne-prone skin. Fortunately, there is the HydraFacial®, a unique skin resurfacing treatment that is innovative in that it provides a number of benefits all at once.
About the HydraFacial®
The HydraFacial® is a non-invasive skin resurfacing treatment that doesn’t use lasers or abrasion. It rejuvenates the skin in a number of ways by combining cleansing, extraction, exfoliation, hydration and antioxidant protection in one treatment. It is a soothing approach that helps to eliminate acne by extracting impurities like oil and debris that clog deep down within the pores.
This treatment offers additional benefits such as decreasing fine lines, providing more even texture and hydrating the skin. It also provides gentle lymphatic massage, lightens sun damage and stimulates collagen production. These benefits lead to overall firmer and healthier skin.
How It Works
A special device uses pressurized air to spray a fine mist of water or saline onto the treatment area in such a way that the micro-droplets of the spray are able to exfoliate the outer layer of skin. This process also stretches the skin to allow a cleansing infusion of hydration, vitamins and minerals to penetrate it. Since it doesn’t use the heat or abrasive substances of other skin resurfacing treatments, the HydraFacial® is an appropriate and effective treatment for acne. It also delivers a boost of oxygen to the skin, which helps to destroy acne.
What to Expect
You may see the immediate results of healthier-looking skin after just one session. The skin will continue to improve gradually over time, with breakouts beginning to clear in the days following your session. A series of treatments is often recommended to achieve optimal results. Our team will work to create a treatment plan that is best for you. Each session takes only about a half hour to 45 minutes to complete, making it a convenient option.
