Many products have appeared on the dermatology market in the past few years, but none like the hydrafacial. This product combines multiple technologies to clean and detox the skin, clearing everything from the surface of the skin to the deepest pores. The cleanest skin is achieved with the power of suction, gentle friction from liquids spinning turbulently on the surface of the skin, carrying away with it all the dirt and grime from our unhealthy diets, genetics produced sebum and the toxicities found in the air from the city life.
Over the past decade, microdermabrasion has been accepted as a safe, reliable method for nonabrasive facial rejuvenation. The clinical and histological changes associated with crystal-based microdermabrasion have been discussed in the past. These have included reduction in fine lines and hyperpigmentation, decreased pore size, and improved skin texture. Likewise, thickening and reorganization of the papillary dermal matrix has been demonstrated. In an effort to augment the changes observed following microdermabrasion, clinicians began using other modalities, such as mixing these techniques with liquids to maximize results.
Crystal-free microdermabrasion was developed to eliminate the need for costly, cumbersome crystals and to reduce the potential for eye injury. The most recent refinement has been the introduction of pneumatically applied topical serums to more efficiently deliver various chemical compounds to the skin. Hydradermabrasion, the term coined to describe the procedure that combines crystal-free microdermabrasion using an abrading tip with the pneumatic application of an antioxidant-rich serum, represents another step in the evolution of microdermabrasion technology. Recently, there has been substantial interest in the effects of antioxidants on skin health. It has been theorized that antioxidants protect skin from ultraviolet radiation damage, reverse photo damage, and improve collagen synthesis.
Rather than blasting the skin with grit, which is how the traditional dermabrasion is done, this gentler approach vacuums out pores while simultaneously pushing in potent actives, which moisturize, brighten, plump, and protect. The machine's hand piece holds patented spiralized treatment tips equipped with “vortex technology.”
Somewhere in the world, two Hydrafacials are performed every 30 seconds. If you try to do the math: This essentially amounts to 2 million treatments given worldwide in just one year. That's more than the total number of Botox injections administered in the U.S. in 2017.
Let’s understand this. It’s a facial and it is more popular than botox. It’s a facial.
Services around the USA average around $200 or more in spas and doctors offices.
The Hydrafacial is a "medical-grade hydradermabrasion device that carries out a patented three-part regimen — cleansing, exfoliating, and then infusing skin with intensive serums" explains Sameer Bashey, a clinical instructor in dermatology at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles.
Usually memories of facials bring back some sort of discomfort. The hydrafacial applies a vortex motion with liquids allowing all the grime and debris to be lifted up without causing pain or leaving marks. It’s a pretty step in and out procedure allowing you to walk out with a refreshed face. With this treatment you can get instant gratification with zero downtime and go on with your busy lives without having to hide red and swollen dermis.
A specific recommendation for this treatment is to be applied prior to the application of other procedures. It will lay down the groundwork for a cleaner and more pliable skin surface and this in turn will allow for substances to be better absorbed and for more circulation to be available on the superficial skin. An example application, facial peelings are great for tightening the skin and getting rid of dark spots and wrinkles, but to do this it must be absorbed by the skin. Applying the hydrafacial prior to the application of the facial peeling clears dead skin that has been piling up and removes oils, allowing for better penetration of the peeling substances and in turn a better end result. Combined with Platelet Rich Plasma, which on its own is great for facial rejuvenation, scar removal and filling wrinkles due to the high synthesis of collagen. The Hydrafacial draws much of the blood to the surface of the skin and by doing this, when the PrP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is applied with Microneedling, it improves the body’s response to the treatment and the results will be much more significant. As an additional benefit, let’s not forget that when applying PrP with Microneedling we need the use of a topical anesthetic and that by clearing all the oils and debris, the topical anesthetic will have a better chance of penetrating deeper and allowing for a better increase in the pain threshold, therefore less pain or no pain at all.
How Does It Work?
The HydraFacial uses a unique five-step approach.
Vortex-Cleaning—The patented tip hydrates the skin with a nutrient-rich solution that deeply cleanses the pores and softens and lifts away impurities.
Hydropeel Exfoliation—The tip uses its multiple abrasive edges to exfoliate the skin several times with each pass to achieve better, more even skin resurfacing without irritation.
Vortex-Peel- A customized blend of glycolic and salicylic acids further help exfoliate and prep the skin for the essential serums.
Painless Vortex-Extraction—The vortex (powerful circulation of liquid) effect easily dislodges and removes blackheads, whiteheads, and sebum for quick and painless extractions.
Vortex-Fusion of Antioxidants—The unique spiral tip employs a patented method for infusing hydrating skin solutions and potent antioxidants into the skin, improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, oily skin, and hyperpigmentation.
This Process is achieved with 4 different liquids.
The first achieves a cleansing and exfoliation removing dead skin cells and revealing healthy new skin.
The second liquid causes a very light acid peel that gently loosens dirt and debris from pores without irritation. Taking with it bacteria and other microorganisms.
The third liquid applies antioxidants and nourishes and protects the skin.
The fourth and last of all the liquids hydrates the skin
Most patients refer an unusual feeling of refreshness and cleanliness, not comparable to any other facial. Another benefit and great appeal is that makeup application, sunscreen and other creams can be continued as usual.
