HydraFacial™ is a NEW breakthrough in aesthetic technology. It's completely non-invasive and is a great treatment that removes dead skin cells and impurities while simultaneously bathing the new skin with cleansing, hydrating and moisturizing serums. The treatment is soothing, refreshing, non-irritating and immediately effective.
Hydration is the foundation for healthy, radiant skin. Irritation of the skin has been proven to increase the signs of aging. The HydraFacial™ is a hydrating & non-irritating treatment.
The HydraFacial™ treatment is designated for all skin types. Even the most sensitive skin easily tolerates the HydraFacial™ treatment.
The HydraFacial™ treatment is a fast, efficient treatment that takes as little as 15 minutes. There is no discomfort during the procedure – it is often described as feeling like a "cool paint brush moving slowly over the face". You may put on make-up and return to your normal activities right after the treatment since there is no downtime.
The HydraFacial Tip using Vortex Technology
The 4-in-1 Vortex Technology™ exfoliates, peels, extracts impurities and hydrates the skin, all with one unit.
The tip is changed between steps to facilitate the special job that it's doing. You can see why they call it 'vortex', right?
Step 1: Cleans and exfoliates the surface of the skin.
The treatment starts out with the blue tip (or the orange one if it's been a while since you've exfoliated) to glide across your skin, using a vacuum powered stream of Activ-4™ serum, to gently remove the outer layer of skin called the stratum corneum, as well as all the dead skin cells, sebum and dirt accumulated on the surface of your skin during the day.
The Activ-4™ serum is comprised of lactic and glycolic acid to cleanse and dislodge the gunk inside the pores, algae extract to sooth and hydrate, and yeast extract to smooth fine lines and firm the skin.
Step 2: Break up the debris in the pores using glycolic and salicylic acid.
After the skin is exfoliated and cleaned, the teal tip comes into action, infusing the skin with the Glysal™ serum, a happy mix of salicylic and glycolic acid to help loosen the deeper dirt, dead skin and sebum from the pores.
This is so important since sebum accumulation is the cause of blackheads and whiteheads, the precursors of acne.
Step 3: Strong vacuum suction removes blackheads and other nastiness.
After loosening up all the bad stuff, the teal tip stays on but the serum du moment is the Beta-HD™. Beta-HD™ has ingredients such as Salicylic Acid to aid in sucking all of that loosened stuff out (and into a vat for your viewing pleasure afterwards). Then, to hydrate and sooth your skin, it also has Honey Extract and Spirea Ulmaria Flower Extract.
You may also add the DermaBuilder™ option to this step, which will simultaneously infuse the pores with wrinkle reducing serums comprised of several types of peptides (and believe me, you ain't ever seen a peptide you didn't like).
Step 4: Infuses antioxidant serum Antiox-6 into the skin.
Vortex-fusion is the final step, when the pores are all clean, and the clear tip comes out to infuse the skin with an antioxidant serum called Antiox-6.
Antiox-6 is a yummy combo of good stuff like Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamins A & E, White Tea Extract, Horse Chestnut Extract, Rosemary Extract and Turtle Shell Flakes, that help to plump up your skin and protect it from free radicals at the same time.
