One of the most critical things that is recommended for patients to maintain their appearance is a regular skin care regimen. This is something that is the cornerstone of looking good. This involves different daily creams, avoiding UV exposure, not smoking and occasional laser treatments such as Halo lasers. What if you have a social event and you have done none of these things? You obviously can get a facial laser a week before a wedding or have enough time for a facial cream to work. The best last minute facial treatment with the lowest risk of side effects is a Hydrafacial. It is done by brides before weddings, stars before the Golden Globes and even TV personalities on a regular basis to look great.
During the summer months our skin can take a beating with sun exposure, layers of
sunscreen mixed in with chlorine, dust from hiking and other outdoor activities.
Many people opt to stay away from laser treatments during the summer as they can make people more photosensitive and/or require time out of the sunwhile healing. A great facial treatment patients can continue to receive during the summer months is the Hydrafacial. Hydrafacial is a 30 minute, painless treatment for all skin types that uses a hydradermabrasion machine with exfoliating tips that glide across the skin, meanwhile cleansing, exfoliating, extracting, and infusing the skin with antioxidants and hydration. The summer months are also filled with social events that limit the downtime availability that is needed with a pro fractional laser or other facial procedure.
The hydrafacial is a machine that sends water over the face with a medical grade exfoliator at the same time. By gently exfoliating the skin and hydrating it, the Hydrafacial offers a short term quick fix to maximize your appearance before a major life or social event.
In addition to removing dead skin, Hydrafacial offers three specialty solution that can be added at the same time to boost your treatment:
Britenol, which uses Vitamin C and Alpha Arbutin to brighten the skin and minimize the appearance of dark spots, sun spots and hyperpigmentation, leaving skin with a more even tone.
Dermabuilder, an advanced age-refining peptide complex serum that helps smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and enhance skin
elasticity as well as boosts hydration.
Connective Tissue Growth Factor minimizes the appearance of fine lines, strengthen the skin, reduce skin roughness and improve elasticity.
There is no down time with the Hydrafacial and, in fact, very popular with patients a day before a big event to get their skin looking its best. Hydrafacials can be done on other parts of the body, such as the back or back of arms.
Those who should not get the Hydrafacial include patients who have a shellfish, aspirin or sulfur
allergy, patients who have been on Accutane in the last 6 months, severe acne, sunburn, and patients
with an active cold sore. Patients see a nice result after just one Hydrafacial, but it is recommended to
continue with Hydrafacials on a monthly basis for best results. Call our office your hydrafacial with our aesthetician Paula Boddicker today. 303 468 8844.
