HYDRAFACIAL MD Treatment
The HydraFacial MD is a rejuvenating, simultaneous cleansing, exfoliating, hydrating, and extraction treatment system that results in smoother, luminous, and younger-looking skin. The HydraFacial MD exfoliates dead skin cells and extracts impurities while simultaneously treating the healthy underlying skin with cleansing, hydrating and moisturizing serums. While daily regular skincare is very important your facial skin needs a tune-up regularly. We advise a regular HydraFacial treatment every season to maintain the results of skincare, laser treatments, or previous PRP skin rejuvenation treatments. The HydraFacial can also treat acne breakouts in tandem with laser acne spot treatments or can help improve uneven skin tone especially if you have sensitive skin. We offer many other treatments that complement HydraFacial MD treatments. We would be pleased to discuss these options with you at any time.
What is the HydraFacial process?
There are 4 steps in the HydraFacial MD experience that will cleanse and rejuvenate your skin while you relax and enjoy the treatment:
Step 1: Vortex-Cleaning
The HydroPeel® tip is used with a specific deep cleansing solution to CLEANSE the surface of your skin removing the initial layer of oil and dirt.
Step 2: HydroPeel Exfoliation
A light chemical peel (a combination of glycolic and salicylic acid) is applied to EXFOLIATE debris (dead skin). The chemical peel lowers the pH of the skin breaking the bonds that hold the upper dead layers of skin together to allow for the gentle removal of dead skin without irritation.
Step 3: Vortex-Extraction
Painless vortex suction easily dislodges blackheads, whiteheads, and sebum to further EXTRACT these impurities from deep within the pores.
Step 4: Infusion
Antioxidants and hyaluronic acid are infused into the now clean and fresh skin to HYDRATE, nourish, and protect the skin.
Who can benefit from a HydraFacial MD?
HydraFacial MD is good for all skin types, for teens, men, and women. HydraFacial MD targets many skin conditions:
- elasticity and firmness
- enlarged pores
- skin texture
- signs of aging
- sagging, loose skin
- sun damage
- uneven skin tone
- fine lines and wrinkles
- dry skin
- dull complexion
- oily, acne-prone skin
Repeat treatments are needed to maintain results. Results can vary between individuals. Some people exceed our expectations and some people respond below expectations. Although good results are expected, with the focus on improvement and not perfection, every person is unique and it is impossible to guarantee results.
Preparing for the treatment
Prior to the treatment, you should:
- have had a skin consultation
- ensure that you have reviewed this Information Sheet and that you have had enough opportunity to ask questions and have them answered to your complete satisfaction
- ensure that you have signed the consent form
- avoid sun exposure, tanning bed or tanning products for 3 to 6 weeks prior to treatment or indefinitely
- start prophylactic antiviral therapy if you have a history of cold sores
- avoid strong topical creams (Retin-A, glycolics, etc.) for 7 days before and after treatment
- notify at the consultation or at your treatment if you have an upcoming important event
Note that the HydraFacial MD can only treat/enhance existing skin conditions. The regular use of sun protection and prescribed skincare will prolong your treatment results and decrease the occurrence of new lesions, recurrent acne, and rosacea.
