Hydrafacial MD is a gentle, patented skin treatment that addresses several types of skin problems. It’s a very popular beauty treatment these days, even with Hollywood celebrities. In this blog post, we’ll explore what a hydrafacial MD is and how it can benefit your skin.
What is Hydrafacial MD?
Hydrafacial MD, also simply known as a hydrafacial, is a non-invasive skincare procedure to treat oily skin, fine lines, wrinkles, skin elasticity or other signs of ageing like uneven skin tones, brown spots and enlarged pores. As the name suggests, this facial hydrates the skin and improves its overall texture and appearance.
It uses a combination of cleansing, exfoliation, extraction and gradual hydration with an added boost of antioxidants. It rejuvenates the skin by using three facial treatments such as exfoliation and skin resurfacing, chemical peeling, extraction, and hydration.
The results are instant and there is no downtime required for recovery. The treated skin feels smooth, moisturized, glowing and attractive without any redness or irritations.
How Hydrafacial MD works?
The treatment procedure usually involves the following steps –
- Vortex Exfoliation: The beauty technician first cleanses and exfoliates your skin with a tool (vortex) that uses a serum to open up the pores, gently removes the dead skin cells, dirt and sebum from the surface of the skin. The serum is generally composed of glycolic acid, lactic acid, algae extracts and yeast.
- Vortex Peel: Next, the vortex is glided over the skin with a serum composed of glycolic and salicylic acid to penetrate deeper into the skin. It helps to gently remove sebum accumulation from the deeper layers of skin to prevent acne, blackheads and whiteheads.
- Vortex Extraction: With the help of a vortex extraction nozzlewhich acts as a vacuum, all the gunk from your clogged pores are extracted and accumulated in a cup attached to the base of the machine. At the completion of your hydrafacial treatment, you can see what exactly was extracted and you’ll be surprised to see the amount of gunk removed. During this process, the technician also uses a wrinkle reducing serum that’s composed of several types of peptides.
- Vortex Fusion: This is the final step of this skin treatment procedure.The technician applies an anti-oxidant and collagen based serum on the skin with the help of the vortex fusion tool. The newly hydrated skin initiates collagen formation and promotes elasticity of the skin. It plumps up and prepares your skin to fight free radicals.
Hydrafacial MD is ideal for those who are looking for effective result-driven skin treatment in less than an hour, without painful abrasive procedures. People with sensitive skin can also opt fora hydrafacialas the treatment is very gentle.
