Our skin takes a lot of abuse. Sun, wind, steam, grease, dirt, and oil all get on our skin and seep down into our pores. Thoroughly washing your face is not enough to get all of the debris out of your skin permanently. Sometimes you need help. At the Aesthetics Anti-Aging Center in Macon, GA, we’re certified to perform this facial treatment on our patients, and it has many benefits.
The HydraFacial is the only hydra-dermabrasion treatment that uses advanced technology to provide cleansing, extraction, and hydration. Here are some of the many reasons why we love this treatment.
What Are the Benefits of a HydraFacial?
It’s a Painless Treatment
In comparison to many other skin treatments, the HydraFacial is painless. The process involves a machine that behaves like a small vacuum on your skin. There are no harsh chemicals, peels, or irritants that will leave you feeling dried out or in pain following the treatment. Some people have compared the process to a cat licking their face. The machine has a sandpaper feeling to it, but it’s not painful in any way.
The treatment also doesn’t require any pulling or scraping of your skin. Since there’s no needling or pinching, you’ll go through the process without the uncomfortable or burning sensation that some other treatments may cause. Many patients find it enjoyable and relaxing.
Works on Most Skin Types
The treatment works for most skin types, so we’ll never turn you down. Each treatment is customized to meet your needs, so we’ll always find a way to make it work for you. This includes if you have rashes, acne, rosacea, or other skin concerns.
We’ll work side-by-side with you to determine the best action plan to get you the results you crave. During the treatment, we’ll walk you through the process and ensure that you feel comfortable and free from pain during the whole thing.
Following the treatment, we’ll touch base with you to see how you’re feeling, how you feel about the treatment, and what you’re thinking in terms of results. There are different intensities and options for every individual.
Results in One Treatment Session
One of our favorite things about this treatment is that we can watch our patients walk out of the office differently than they walked in. It’s possible to experience results from one visit and emerge from the treatment better than you were before.
If you’re looking for a solution that works quickly, you’ll want to give this a try. You’ll experience smoother, more hydrated, and more vibrant skin immediately, and these results can last as long as one to two weeks.
So, what does this mean for you? It means that you won’t have to come back in constantly for treatment sessions, and you’ll be able to solve the problem quickly if you have an important event coming up that you want to look your best for.
The HydraFacial treatment takes 60 minutes. Once that hour is complete, you will walk out of the office with little to no irritation requiring no downtime at all. If you have something to do following the treatment, you’ll be able to get in your car, drive there, and take care of it.
There’s no need for bandages, creams, or rubs, and you’ll be able to resume all your normal daily activities once you leave the office. In fact, you’ll even be able to apply makeup right after your 60 minutes is complete.
We consider this one of the easiest and simplest ways to improve the appearance of your skin. With very few boundaries of entry, it’s one of the most inclusive skin procedures, and the lack of downtime is important for those of you living a busy and active lifestyle.
Works on Sensitive Skin
One issue that a lot of patients have with skin treatments is the fear of experiencing puffiness or redness in the skin. If you have sensitive skin, a lot of treatments can cause you to feel irritated afterward due to the scraping nature of the process and the chemicals used to clear your skin.
With this facial, you don’t have to worry about that. The vacuum-powered extraction method used doesn’t require any lancing of the skin, and the few chemicals used are gentle and free from burning or irritating.
Provides Younger Looking Skin
If you’re looking for a treatment that instantly provides you with relief from pores and fine lines, this is the solution you’ve been waiting for. Patients will immediately experience improved firmness in their face as well as better texture and a clearer complexion.
One of the first things you’ll notice is the lack of blackheads on your face. If acne and blackheads cause your skin to look oily or rough, this treatment will solve that problem by removing blackheads, clearing your pores. Having clearer pores is one of the many solutions to acne because it will eliminate excess oil from the skin.
Removing fine lines and wrinkles automatically causes the skin to appear younger and more hydrated. In one visit, you will notice reduced lines on your skin, which will help you to look more youthful. Another cause of aging skin is brown spots. Removing brown spots will clear up the skin, make it appear more even and consistent, and all of these factors will result in skin that glows and looks more vibrant and rich.
Great for the Health of Your Skin
Keep in mind that our skin is the barrier between the dirt, grease, and oil we encounter each day. A lot of this dirt and oil breaks through and buries itself in our pores. Simply washing our face and exfoliating isn’t enough to improve the health of your skin.
The HydraFacial treatment goes deep into your pores to remove the dirt and grime that lives below the surface. Drawing out all these impurities not only helps your skin look better, but it’s also great for the health of your skin.
With less congested skin, you’re decreasing the chances of experiencing acne and infection. Skin health is critical to overall health, and we need to care for our skin because it’s our barrier against harmful contaminants.
Of course, what’s affordable to one person might be expensive to another, but for the most part, the treatment is cost-effective, and you can go at your own pace. While we recommend that patients return for future treatments, you can do it as you please based on your own budget.
Our HydraFacial treatment costs $240 per session, but the results are instant and long-lasting. While this might seem expensive, it’s an all-around treatment that solves all problems in one session. If you combined all the other treatments into one package, the cost would exceed $1,000.
Instead, you’re able to get everyone in one 60 minute session, instead of having to come in and out multiple times for a variety of different treatments.
Consistency is important with facial treatments, and when you’re going into a facility, you are often unsure of what to expect. A machine controls a majority of the facial, so you’re certain to get consistent results each time you come in.
When you’re dealing with a different individual performing a manual treatment, you’re likely to experience good results one time and less desirable ones another time. That won’t be the case with this treatment.
Each time you come in, you’ll know what to expect, what’s going to happen, and what you can look forward to when you leave. The results will always be the same, and they’ll always be consistent.
What Happens During a HydraFacial Treatment?
In the 60 minutes you’re with us, you’ll experience our four-step skin rejuvenating process. Here’s a general breakdown of what will happen:
1. Cleansing and Exfoliation
Step one is to exfoliate and cleanse your skin. We use a vortex cleanser tool and hydra peel. This process removes dead skin while revealing the new, fresh skin underneath. This step also opens the pores, which makes it easier to bring elasticity back into the skin.
2. Chemical Peel
Don’t worry; this is not like your typical chemical peel. Many leave the skin feeling irritated and painful. This facial uses non-irritating glycolic and salicylic acids, which are gentle on the skin but effective at removing deep-down debris from your pores.
Here’s where we take the strong but painless vortex vacuum to suck up all the impurities from your skin. We’ll remove all the blackheads, dirt, and oil that has collected in your skin for years.
4. Hydrating Serum
We’ll hydrate the skin using an antioxidative hydrating serum rich with peptides and other important nutrients for the last step. This part will detoxify and hydrate the skin, so you don’t feel any irritation or discomfort.
For most patients, this will do the trick, but your aesthetician may also recommend additional services to help compliment the overall quality of your skin.
Who Should Get a HydraFacial?
Anyone who cares about their skin but sometimes feels like theirs is “less than desirable.” If your skin appears oily, greasy, wrinkly, or patchy, the facial will help improve your skin’s overall quality, which will do so much for your self-confidence.
The most important aspect of skin treatment is that it’s here to help us feel better. While the health benefits are there, we want our patients to walk out a little taller than they walked in. Oily skin causes acne, which can cause us to feel self-conscious or depressed about our appearance.
Think of the facial as a solution to your problem. You come in, and in 60 minutes, we can solve your problem and leave you feeling better than you did when you walked in. That’s our goal, and that’s our promise.
How Often Should You Get a HydraFacial?
While there aren’t any set guidelines as to how often you should come in, we highly recommend visiting us at least once a month. In the first few months, we’ll suggest that you go through facial treatment twice a month to set a general baseline of skin health.
Once you’ve established that base, then you can decrease to once per month or even less based on your budget. The benefits of a once-per-month appointment are clear, and that is generally what we recommend to our patients.
Get the Results You Want
If you’ve decided that beautiful, young, and youthful-looking skin is what you want, then it’s time to take action. The treatment is painless, simple, easy, and super effective, so there’s no better time than the present to take a step towards self-confidence and overall skin health.
