It is important to always put our best face forward but as we age, we don't always feel as comfortable in our skin as we once were. Not only do we see start to see typical signs of aging, facial skin is particularly vulnerable to exposure from environmental pollutants and sun.
For years women have turned to chemical peels to fight the signs of aging, however, these treatments can be painful and often require downtime afterward. Luckily, there is an alternative to harsh chemical peels called Hydrafacial. Read on to discover the benefits of Hydrafacials!
What is Hydrafacial?
A hydrafacial is a three-step process of exfoliation, gentle peel, and hydration. Exfoliation is the first step, used to remove dead skin cells that can build up on the surface of the skin, this exfoliation is common in many professional skin care procedures. Next, a gentle peel is done to loosen up contaminants and debris on the skin and is less irritating to the skin than chemical peels. The loose debris is then removed by suction. Finally, a hydration serum is then applied to the skin which will bind, strengthen, and protect leaving skin healthy and smooth.
What are the benefits:
Time Most people today have very little downtime which is one reason hydrafacials are a great option for rejuvenating your skin. While chemical peels can require up to 10 days of downtime, hydrafacials do not require any. The length of the procedure is quite short as well, from 45-60 minutes depending on the type of hydrafacial you choose.
Confidence While we try to keep a great skincare routine, some skin issues are inevitable. It can be hard to be confident when you don't feel great about how your skin looks. Hydrafacial exfoliates, cleanses, removes debris and buildup, and hydrates the skin, leaving your skin looking and feeling younger and healthier. When you look great, you feel great and hydrafacial will have you glowing from the inside, out!
Boosters With the use of boosters, Hydrafacial is customizable so you can target the areas of your skin you wish to see improve the most. The Growth Factor Boost helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles; Britenol Boost can help even skin tone by lightening dark spots and sunspots; DermaBuilder uses a patented combination of peptides to reduce signs of aging and revitalizes the skin.
Universal Hydrafacials can be applied to all skin types, unlike some chemical peels. Whether you have aging, oily, or even sensitive skin, hydrafacials are a safe way to improve the look and feel of your skin!
