If you at first thought the HydraFacial was only a passing fad, this skin treatment is here to stay, and there’s a simple reason why: it works. Not only does it target the signs of aging, but this treatment benefits virtually every skin type. If you’re looking for a transformative facial treatment, at Tru Care Skin Center located in Chicago, IL, we offer just the treatment, the incredible, skin-changing HydraFacial.
How Is a HydraFacial Performed?
This facial is effective and works like no other. In addition to being effective and anti-aging, the HydraFacial is non-invasive, requires no downtime afterward, and nearly every skin type is a candidate for this treatment. This facial takes place in the office and lasts approximately thirty minutes, and during those thirty minutes, three steps take place which lead to immediate results in your skin that you and everyone around you will notice.
Step One: Cleanse and Peel
During the first step of the HydraFacial, there are three important steps: cleansing, exfoliation, and the application of an acid-based peel. This first step is an important part of the overall treatment because it helps prepares your skin to receive all of the benefits that result from the steps that follow.
In the same way that cleansing your skin each day creates a clean base on which to apply moisturizers and serums, it is an important first step of the HydraFacial because it prepares the landscape of your skin for all that will follow during the rest of the facial. First, your skin is cleansed of all debris, oil, make-up, moisturizer, or anything else lurking on its surface. Once your skin has been cleansed, it is ready for the next step of the facial.
Exfoliation takes place immediately following cleansing. This exfoliation is vortex exfoliation, and the tool used gently removes dead skin cells from the top layer of your skin, opening up the pores and preparing them for extractions. This step helps the skin better absorb the moisturizers applied during the final step of the treatment. The exfoliation part of this treatment is partly responsible for the healthy glow that results following your facial.
Following exfoliation, the esthetician applies an acid-based peel, and once it works its magic, it is carefully removed. The purpose of this peel is to help treat problem areas of the face, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone commonly referred to as hyperpigmentation. Only the most gentle and effective peels will be applied, so if you’re worried about reacting like you would from a chemical peel, don’t.
Step Two: Extract and Hydrate
This step of the treatment involves extractions and the application of hydrating moisturizers. For those that struggle with minor to moderate acne, this part of the treatment is life-changing. Not only is all of the dirt and debris that lead to breakouts removed from your skin, but you’ll be able to see the tangible evidence of all of those impurities after they’ve been cleared from your pores. If you love extracting your pores, you will love this step.
If you’ve ever had extractions performed during a routine facial, you know that they are often painful and can leave your skin with red marks for hours following the treatment. The HydraFacial uses a different type of extraction method that is gentle yet effective. Your esthetician won’t be using the typical metal needle-like extraction tool you may have had used on you in the past. Instead, this tool creates a painless suction that removes debris from the pores.
Following the removal of all of the debris from your pores comes the hydration process. Hydration is one of the simplest secrets to youthful, wrinkle-free skin. The HydraFacial involves the use of nutrient-rich moisturizing agents that are carefully applied to the new layer of skin exposed by the exfoliation process. The benefit of this facial is that each step builds upon the one before it to create results unlike any other facial has been able to before.
Step Three: Fuse and Protect
The third and final step in this facial involves the use and application of powerful antioxidants and peptides. Once your skin has been thoroughly cleansed, exfoliated, resurfaced, and all of the dirt and oil have been removed from your pores, your hydrated, newly exposed layer of skin is ready to be saturated with incredibly effective products. These products will help combat aging, minimize fine lines and wrinkles, and give your skin a youthful, hydrated glow.
The final step in this hydrating facial involves the use of the vortex-fusion tool. As this tool passes back and forth across the surface of the skin, it works by infusing it with powerful serums loaded with antioxidants and collagen-rich ingredients. The purpose of these serums is to promote even deeper hydration and they are responsible for the glowing effect that results following this treatment.
