HydraFacial MD is a complex facial therapy that combines five basic steps for an optimal, immediate effect: exfoliation for basic cleaning, chemical peeling for deep action, extraction to remove black spots, regeneration for the antiaging effect and hydration for the lightening and softness of the skin.
HydraFacial is suitable for men and women of all ages. The specific stages of therapy are chosen individually, according to the type and the needs of the skin.
The extraordinary advantage of therapy over classic manual cleaning is that thanks to the use of modern technologies and powerful serums, standard 5-step therapy takes no more than 30 minutes and leaves no redness and traces.
HydraFacial is unique with a variety of issues that can effectively solve:
Detoxification and revitalization of exhausted and aged skin”
- deep and intense hydration on dry or wrinkled skin
- sebum regulation and tightening of enlarged pores in oily skin
- removal of comedones (black spots), pigment spots and scars from acne and rosacea
- smoothing the fine lines and clearing the complexion
- lifting effect in bags under the eyes
- restoring skin damaged by sunburn
The instant results of therapy are due to the simultaneous use of innovative technologies and proven effectiveness.
Thanks to the patented Vortex technology, HydraFacial introduces deep serums into the skin. The technology is a vortex, like a mini tornado, a special serum and air with the help of a vacuum. Different spiral nozzles help the individual stages of therapy – exfoliating and smoothing the skin, renewing the epidermis, removing pigmentation, antioxidant and vitamin therapy.
An additional option is 3 procedures treating different problem areas: wet diamond microdermabrasion on rough skin, pigment spots and acne scars; vacuum lymph drainage to improve circulation, reduce swelling and tightness; chromotherapy with blue or red LED light – for an anti-inflammatory, soothing and regenerating effect.
What does the procedure involve?
Therapy is preceded by a type analysis, specific skin problems and needs. The specific steps are selected individually.
The main procedures are as follows:
- Exfoliation for basic cleaning
With the help of a specific surface spiral nozzle, the epidermis is refreshed, pigmentation is removed and skin regeneration, while moisturizing serum is passed. The vacuum nozzle used helps tone up, tightens, improves microcirculation and lymphatic drainage.
The procedure uses Activ-4 serum with the following ingredients: glucosamine, which has anti-inflammatory action; yeast extract – strong antioxidant; algae extract containing 18 amino acids; the lactic acid, which moisturizes, flattens the relief of the skin and bleaches; urea – to effectively cull the cells.
- Chemical Peeling for Deep Impact
The procedure softens and expands the pores without injuring the skin and is preparing for the removal of dirt.
The HydraFacial GlySal chemical peel is available in three versions – soft, moderate or intense, which are used depending on skin problems and the desired effect. Using a special nozzle, the liquid is simultaneously applied to the skin and is sucked out at the same time. This prevents prolonged retention of the preparation on the skin and thus remains protected from burns.
The preparations used contain glycolic acid and salicylic acid. Glycol (alpha hydroxy acid, AHA) is a natural substance with many beneficial effects on the skin: it accelerates cell renewal of the skin, stimulates the synthesis of collagen and hyaluronic acid in the dermis, improves the properties of the elastic fibers and increases the density of collagen fibers, lines and wrinkles, gently hydrates and exfoliates.
- Extraction to remove black dots
This step aims to clean the deepest dirt and regulate the sebum. Thanks to VORTEX technology, the used Beta-HD serum penetrates deep into the skin and dissolves contamination. The procedure has a powerful anti-inflammatory and antibacterial action, and the active ingredients of the preparations used: copper extract, providing hydration and enhanced antibacterial protection, Spirea Ulmaria flower extract that soothes and smooths the skin and salicylic acid that gently exfoliates and supports extraction .
- Regeneration for an antiaging effect
Depending on the problem being treated, either a special peptide dermabild cocktail is used that stimulates collagen-producing cells to smooth out the wrinkles or the new product to remove pigmentary and age-related spots of Britenol.
Brinolol has a clinically tested alpha-arbutin-based product that safely and effectively tackles the problem. The extra active ingredients of the preparation, which help to clear the complexion and reduce the age spots, are the extracts of borage, vitamin C and other antioxidants – horse chestnut seeds, arnica extract and detoxifying green tea.
- Hydration for the luminosity and softness of the skin
Intense hydration is achieved through powerful antioxidant and vitamin therapy with Antiox +. Through a specific nozzle, serum containing hyaluronic acid is added to the skin – one of the most important ingredients for achieving a clean, smooth, hydrated and radiant skin. The serum complex also includes:
- wild horse chestnut extract, acting anti-inflammatory and capillary-strengthening;
- Red algae extract containing 74 useful microelements, including magnesium, boron, copper, manganese, selenium, zinc;
- glycerin, acting soothing and moisturizing the skin;
- Earth mineral peptides that stimulate the production of collagen and elastin and help to prevent fine lines;
- myrtle extract containing compounds of the most powerful class of antioxidants – 20 times stronger than vitamin C and up to 50 times stronger than vitamin E;
- Mucor Miehei Extract – unique microscopic fungi that simulate skin exfoliation processes;
- arnica (Arnica montana) – has a favorable anti-inflammatory effect;
- Chamomile leaves extract – has strong antioxidant properties, moisturizes, soothes and improves skin color.
What are the contraindications?
Areas with active viral and bacterial infections (eg, herpes) are not treated.
In patients with severe acne or rosacea, it is advisable first to apply targeted therapies that address the problem.
HydraFacial has no side effects and is the ideal solution for painless and effective skin cleansing and hydration.
When does the treatment take effect and how long does it last?
The effect is visible right after therapy – the skin is smooth, radiant and revitalized.
The duration of the effect depends on the type of skin and subsequent individual care.
What is the recommended post-procedure care?
2-3 hours after the procedure it is not advisable to clean the skin with preparations containing alcohol or other aggressive active ingredients.
Skinning within a few hours after the procedure is not a problem, but should be avoided in places with dirty air that can compromise cleaned pores.
Within 24 hours of therapy, unpleasant thermal procedures such as steam bath, sauna, IPL, radio frequency and laser procedures, as well as sun exposure.
How many procedures should I undergo and how often?
For optimum results, 3 consecutive procedures are recommended, ranging from 5 to 7 days. It is recommended that support procedures are done at least once a month. In case of need (sunburn, dehydration, appearance of comedones, pigment spots, etc.), therapy can be administered immediately, regardless of the date of its last application.
