Although a HydraFacial MD® treatment is safe for all skin types and can be used to treat numerous skin care concerns such as hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, elasticity, firmness, skin texture and tone, it is particularly well suited to individuals with acne prone skin and acne scarring. This innovative 4-step process, which involves cleansing, exfoliating, peeling, and hydrating the skin, effectively removes the impurities that clog pores, resulting in radiant, healthy skin and a boost to your confidence. Regardless of age, if you suffer from breakouts or acne scarring, a HydraFacial can help you treat the problem and restore healthy balance to the complexion.
The first step is the Vortex-Exfoliation™, which cleanses and exfoliates the skin, using a resurfacing wand and Activ-4™ serum, in order to eliminate dirt, debris, and the sebum that is responsible for the development of acne. As a result, pores are unclogged and the skin’s surface is rejuvenated. This gentle process can be compared to the feeling of using a facial brush, such as a Clarisonic.
Next, is the Vortex-Peel™, using Glysal™ serum, a blend of salicylic and glycolic acids. While gentle on the skin, this peel is incredibly effective in dislodging the stubborn dirt, debris, and sebum that causes clogged pores. This deeply penetrating peel works to treat existing acne while also preventing future breakouts. Unlike other glycolic acid peels, the Vortex-Peel™ does not cause the skin to string or peel following the procedure.
While traditional facials often involve painful manual extractions, the third step of a HydraFacial utilizes the Vortex-Extraction™ nozzle tip, which gently suctions out any remaining blackheads and impurities, deeply cleaning pores and preparing skin for the final step of the treatment without causing skin trauma and inflammation.
As an added bonus, between steps three and four, a vortex-boost serum can also be applied to support your individual skin needs. In addition to targeting fine lines, the DermaBuilder boost is a peptide serum that treats uneven tone and texture, which can help reduce the appearance of acne scarring. The Growth Factor Boost, which works to minimize fine lines and wrinkles, also encourages healthy cell growth, thereby preventing future breakouts. The discoloration caused by acne scarring can be treated using the Britenol Boost, a serum designed to treat uneven skin tone.
Finally, the Vortex-Fusion® nozzle tip is used to distribute an Antiox+ serum, comprised of antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid. The application of this medical grade serum helps to improve skin’s hydration and improve skin’s elasticity.
