Having healthy skin can make you appear younger, boost your confidence, maintain your body’s moisture, and help protect your body from harmful external elements like the sun’s UV rays or bacteria. True Skin Care Center in Chicago, IL offers many different treatments, including HydraFacial, to help you have youthful-looking and healthy skin.
What Is a HydraFacial Treatment?
It’s a non-invasive, medical-grade resurfacing treatment option that will help revitalize your skin and counteract signs of aging. Using advanced, patented technology, this treatment will cleanse and hydrate your skin. It will also perform extractions and its super serums will nourish your skin.
How Does It Work?
This hydradermabrasion treatment uses the unique and effective Vortex-Fusion delivery system to help exfoliate, extract, and hydrate your skin. The HydroPeel Tips have a spiral design to ensure that extractions are painless. When the HydroPeel Tips, the serums, and the vacuum technology work together, a vortex effect is created. This allows any impurities to be easily dislodged and removed as the hydrating skin solutions are delivered to the skin.
There are three steps to this treatment: cleanse and peel, extract and hydrate, and fuse and protect. Together, they work to give you smooth, healthy, younger-looking skin instantly.
Cleanse and Peel
Dead skin cells don’t reflect light as well as healthy ones. When there’s a build-up of dead skin cells, it’s important to make sure they’re removed. Otherwise, your skin will start to look dull. Using a wand, the esthetician will sweep away debris, dead skin cells, and sebum to cleanse the skin’s surface. Your skin will look brighter, cleaner, and healthier. It will also feel revitalized and smooth!
The wand will also apply a mixture of glycolic and salicylic acid that is non-irritating but still very effective. It will deeply penetrate your pores, hydrate your skin, make your skin feel softer, and loosen debris so it can be removed more easily by the wand.
Extract and Hydrate
Here, the esthetician will use a wand that will act as a vacuum. It will be able to suck dead skin cells and the loosened debris from deep within your clogged pores. Intense moisturizers will also be applied to help nourish and hydrate your skin. These moisturizers will also help fight the accumulation of dirt within your skin.
Fuse and Protect
In this final step of the treatment, the wand will apply an antioxidant serum, peptides, as well as collagen to the skin so you’ll have softer skin and a healthy glow.
What Can This Treatment Help With?
Thanks to the incredible Vortex-Fusion delivery system, HydraFacial can help improve the appearance of many skin problems.
Fine Lines and Wrinkles
When the collagen and elastin in your skin break down, fine lines and wrinkles may start to appear. Their appearance is a natural part of the aging process but smoking, genetics, and sun exposure can result in more fine lines and wrinkles at a younger age. Repeated facial movements and expressions also contribute to the formation of wrinkles and fine lines.
When this treatment lifts, removes dead skin cells, and encourages the new, healthier skin cells to the surface of your skin, the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines will be diminished. Your skin will look younger and healthier after it experiences the unique spiral suction from the wand. Your skin will be cleansed, hydrated, and more supple so lines and wrinkles will be less noticeable.
Enlarged pores may be caused by an excess of sebum, decreased elasticity in the skin around the pore, sun damage, blackheads, or a build-up of oil and dead skin cells within a pore. The HydraFacial treatment can help reduce your enlarged pores by clearing out dead skin cells, dirt, and other impurities. Once the pores are cleared, they can return to their original size, and your skin will look and feel much smoother.
Some people have naturally oily skin. Others develop oily skin thanks to their environment or lifestyle. For example, if you live in a hot and humid climate, your skin may be particularly oily. Also, in the summer you’re more likely to have oily skin than in the winter. Oily skin can result in clogged pores and acne.
The HydraFacial treatment combats oily skin by providing deep cleaning and hydration. It will remove excess sebum and can help unclog pores as well as prevent future acne.
Having dry skin can be irritating. You may experience itching, cracking, and scaling as you age or enter the fall and winter months. Thanks to the hydrating effects of this treatment and its serums, it can effectively combat dry skin. After your treatment session, you’ll have supple, hydrated, and healthy skin.
Uneven Skin Texture and Tone
Unevenness in your skin’s texture and tone may be the result of a build-up of dead skin cells, hormonal changes, excessive oil production, or exposure to chemicals, the sun, or pollution.
The gentle but effective exfoliation that the HydraFacial treatment provides can result in a more even skin texture and tone. Once your old, dead skin cells have been removed, a new layer of healthy skin cells will take their place. This new layer will be more uniform in texture and tone so your skin will look healthier.
Dark spots may be caused by sun damage, hormonal changes, previous inflammation caused by acne, or other skin injuries. This treatment removed layers of dead skin cells so new, more uniform skin cells will come to the surface. This will reduce the appearance of hyperpigmented areas.
Thanks to this treatment’s ability to give your pores a deep clean, it can also help get rid of whiteheads, blackheads, and acne as well as prevent new acne from forming.
How Long Will This Treatment Take?
This treatment is fast and easy. It can be given in as little as thirty minutes so you can schedule an appointment in the middle of your busy day.
It’s also a painless treatment. The mixture of glycolic and salicylic acid is gentle enough for those with sensitive skin and the vacuum technology is gentle and non-irritating to the skin.
Is It Customizable?
Yes, this treatment can be customized based on your skincare priorities. There are a variety of different acids that can be used during the acid peel step of the process. The suction’s power can also be turned up or down for different areas of your face to ensure you get the results you want.
There’s also a selection of boosters that will help you achieve certain skin goals. For example, some boosters will introduce growth factors to your skin that can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines while others will add a little extra brightness to your complexion.
How Fast Will I See Results?
The results from this treatment will be visible immediately. It’s great to have before you attend a wedding, photoshoot, or prom so you can make sure you look your best. It’s a great treatment, whether you have an event on the horizon or are just planning to continue with your daily activities.
Is There Any Downtime?
Another benefit of this treatment is the lack of downtime. Once your appointment is finished, you can go about your daily activities as usual. You can even put on makeup immediately after your quick treatment session!
While other treatments may result in pain or redness, this one won’t. It feels like a light, gentle massage and you won’t experience pain or inflammation during or after the treatment.
How Often Should I Receive A Treatment Session?
We recommend around one treatment session per month to ensure your skin is in optimal health. After you receive your treatment, your skin will be less visibly hyperpigmented, less oily, and less congested. The appearance of any age lines will also be improved for five to seven days or longer!
Each additional treatment will help you maintain your skin health results from the previous session as well as continue to improve the appearance of congested skin, oily skin, brown spots, fine lines, and wrinkles.
Who Is A Good Candidate?
This non-invasive treatment was designed to be safe for all skin types. Even people with sensitive skin can receive this treatment and experience rejuvenated skin that’s softer, healthier, and younger-looking. Your skin care professional will be able to customize the treatment and use specific treatment serums based on your skin’s unique needs, conditions, and sensitivity.
It’s great for teenagers and adults, whether they’re struggling with acne, sun damage, or wrinkles. However, those who are pregnant or have active sunburns, rashes, or rosacea should not receive this treatment.
Can I Still Receive Other Treatments?
Yes, you can still receive other treatments with HydraFacial. This treatment can be performed with other non-invasive treatment options like microblading or Botox.
