While you may be familiar with the steps involved in a traditional facial, a HydraFacial MD® treatment is unlike anything you have ever experienced. In addition to creating instant, unparalleled results, the treatment itself is one of a kind. Although your treatment will be completely customized to suit your individual needs, the steps involved are described below so that you know what to expect during your HydraFacial treatment.
Your Comfort Is Our Priority
At Philosophy of Beauty, we are extremely client-focused and work to ensure that we meet the needs of each individual valued patient. As a result, our technicians are dedicated to making certain that you are comfortable and relaxed throughout the HydraFacial MD® treatment. Whether you prefer to relax in silence, chat, or hear about each step of the facial, our technicians will follow your lead, in order to be sure that you are at ease.
The HydraFacial MD® treatment
Prior to your facial, a relaxing, facial lymphatic drainage will be completed in order to improve circulation and the movement of lymph fluid to the lymph nodes in the neck and face, reducing swelling, eradicating impurities, and boosting the immune system.
Your technician will listen to your goals for the treatment, examine your skin, and recommend the optimal treatment for your individual skin needs, as the nozzles and serums used as part of the patented 4-in-1 vortex technology system will vary depending on your particular skin concerns.
Step One: Vortex-Exfoliation™
During the first step of the treatment, your skin will be gently cleansed in order to remove dirt and debris. Utilizing the resurfacing wand and Activ-4™ serum, skin-clogging sebum and dead skin cells will be removed, refreshing your skin’s surface. This exfoliating step is incredibly effective, yet painless and helps restore a more youthful, healthy appearance to your skin.
Step Two: Vortex-Peel™
The second step uses Glysal™ serum, a blend of salicylic and glycolic acids, which works to loosen stubborn dirt, debris, and sebum, thereby preventing future breakouts. Although the Vortex-Peel™ is as effective as more aggressive peels, it is much gentler, as it does not result in scaling after the procedure and does not lead to a burning sensation. Instead, most patients describe it as a slight tingling feeling.
Step Three: Vortex-Extraction™
Next, the Vortex-Extraction™ nozzle tip, aided by Beta-HD serum, is used to painlessly suction out blackheads and other impurities. This helps prep your skin for the final step, ensuring that the serums applied can effectively penetrate the skin, bringing about a dramatic change.
Between steps three and four, a vortex-boost serum may also be applied. The choice of serum will be customized to suit your individual skin needs, as each one targets specific skin concerns. The DermaBuilder boost is a peptide serum which targets fine lines, uneven tone and texture. The Growth Factor Boost, comprised of naturally occurring proteins, is designed to diminish fine lines and wrinkles, by stimulating healthy cell growth. Finally, the Britenol Boost is ideal for patients who experience uneven skin tone resulting from hyper or hypopigmentation.
Step Four: Vortex-Fusion®The final step utilizes the Vortex-Fusion® nozzle tip, which works to deliver an Antiox+ serum, comprised of antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid. This step in particular distinguishes the HydraFacial from any other available facial treatment, as it applies medical grade serums, designed to tighten and hydrate the skin, stimulate collagen and elastin production, and prevent skin discoloration.
