Beautiful woman and autumn leaves

Your skin is a reflection of your overall health and well-being, and it deserves the best care possible. At Skin Cancer & Dermatology Institute, we understand your skin is one of your most precious assets. That’s why we are committed to bringing you the latest and most effective skin care treatments to help you achieve and maintain healthy, radiant skin. Imagine a skin care treatment that combines the luxury of a spa day with the effectiveness of a medical procedure. That’s precisely what you get with a HydraFacial™.

The Science Behind HydraFacial

At its core, HydraFacial is a multi-step procedure designed to cleanse, exfoliate, extract impurities, and infuse the skin with nourishing serums. What sets HydraFacial apart is its use of a unique vortex suction technology that simultaneously removes dirt and debris from the pores while delivering hydrating and rejuvenating solutions. It’s a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that delivers excellent results with zero downtime.

The treatment consists of several steps, each tailored to address specific skin care concerns:

Step 1. Cleansing and Exfoliation: The journey to healthy skin begins with a deep cleanse and gentle exfoliation. This step removes the outer layer of dead skin cells, revealing a fresh canvas for the subsequent phases.

Step 2. Extraction: The patented vortex suction technology is employed to painlessly remove blackheads, whiteheads, and other impurities from congested pores. This step contributes to improved skin texture and reduced pore size.

Step 3. Hydration: Once the skin is thoroughly cleansed and exfoliated, nourishing serums are delivered into the skin. These serums help to hydrate, protect, and revitalize the skin, giving it a radiant and youthful appearance.

Benefits of HydraFacial

HydraFacial is a great rejuvenating treatment for your skin. It has been shown to help with a variety of skin issues, including fine lines and wrinkles, dark spots, clogged pores, mild acne, and skin texture. Here are some benefits HydraFacial offers:

  1. Tailored to Individual Needs: HydraFacial is not a one-size-fits-all treatment. It can be customized to address specific concerns, whether addressing fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, or acne.
  2. Immediate Results: HydraFacial delivers instant gratification unlike some treatments requiring downtime. Patients often notice improved skin texture, reduced redness, and a healthy glow immediately after the treatment.
  3. Hydration Boost: Hydration is the cornerstone of healthy skin. Infusing hydrating serums during the treatment helps the skin retain moisture, leading to a plump and youthful appearance.
  4. Pore Refinement: Through the extraction phase, HydraFacial effectively minimizes the appearance of pores. This not only enhances the overall look of the skin but also prevents further buildup of impurities.
  5. Non-Invasive and Comfortable: The gentle and non-invasive nature of HydraFacial means that it’s well-tolerated by most individuals, even those with sensitive skin. No needles or harsh chemicals are involved, making it a relaxing experience.

Is HydraFacial Suitable for You?

HydraFacial is suitable for all skin types except for individuals with active rashes, sunburn, moderate to severe acne, or rosacea. Those on Accutane should wait six months after treatment completion before undergoing a HydraFacial. It’s crucial to communicate any conditions, allergies, or medications with your Provider to ensure the safety and effectiveness of the treatment.

Achieving Optimal Results

The visible outcomes of a HydraFacial are immediate, including a radiant skin glow and enhanced hydration lasting five to seven days. For optimal results, scheduling a HydraFacial once a month is recommended. If monthly sessions are impractical, one treatment every three months can be beneficial.

HydraFacial works well with other treatments when scheduled at an appropriate time apart. Consider incorporating the following into your overall plan:

* BOTOX® Cosmetic will smooth out lines and wrinkles.

* Fillers, including any in the JUVEDERM® family and Radiesse® and Restylane®, will help you achieve smoother and plumper skin.

* Microneedling helps increase collagen production, improves skin tone and texture, and smooths out fine lines and wrinkles.

Work with your Cosmetic Specialist to ensure your treatment is tailored to your specific skin goals and to develop a well-structured plan for scheduling your treatments appropriately.
