HydraFacial (Basic and Advanced)
Referred to as hydradermabrasion, HydraFacial is a patented skin treatment. The process involves an exfoliating procedure similar to microdermabrasion and consists of the use of hydrating serums. HydraFacial is a three-step process, in principle, like a regular facial that involves deep cleaning, exfoliation, and hydration. However, compared to the Spa facials, HydraFacial results are far more dramatic due to a mechanized wand.
Conditions when HydraFacial is recommended
The non-invasive procedure helps treat skin conditions like dry skin, signs of aging like wrinkles and acne. A study in 2008 revealed that HydraFacial helps in issues like hyperpigmentation, reduces pore size and fine lines.
Benefits of HydraFacial
The treatment improves the skin’s tone and texture. It comprises deep cleaning and exfoliation of the skin, using the application of serums according to your skin type. Skin pores are cleaned while dead cells and debris are removed. The serum penetrates deep down the skin layers to hydrate from within.
The hydrafacial process doesn’t have any severe complications, but you might feel the pressure of the wand during the treatment. It usually doesn’t cause any pain or redness. You need to consult with a medical professional if you have any active rash.
Treatment Options at 7DMC
At the Department of Skincare at 7DMC, every treatment is personalized to suit the needs and goals of the patient. Every therapy we undertake is done after a thorough understanding of the symptoms and the causes behind the skin condition. With the help of the latest and proven technology, our experts ensure holistic correction of the issue and improve the skin’s health, by and large. The non-invasive procedure is carried out in our well-equipped clinic with a medical-grade hydradermabrasion device. The vacuum-like tip of the machine is rendered with vortex technology and made with patented spiralized tips. The tip works with a whirling force and can cleanse way deeper vis-a-vis a conventional extraction or exfoliation process.
The three-step HydraFacial treatment consists of the following steps:
It is the exfoliation of the skin to remove off the dead skin cells and unclog pores. This process alone can make the skin glow and radiant as it induces collagen production. The process is done using the HydraFacial tip generating a vortex across the skin.
The vacuum-like tip is used to extract the debris from the open pores. As a result, stubborn impurities and dead skin cells are dislodged with ease. Unlike conventional facial, this procedure is strictly non-hurtful. The wand’s tip, salicylic acid, and other serum constituents are combined to complete the extraction process.
The final step involves nourishing the skin with booster serums. In this step, the skin cells are soaked with peptides and antioxidants, along with targeted solutions to address specific issues. The process helps remove signs of aging, including fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, etc.
HydraFacial delivers excellent results, and our aestheticians ensure speaking to patients before the procedure. It helps understand the desired goals of the individual. Our experts also check the skin type before they customize the treatment. In the first step, there is a choice between three different strengths of the serum or glycolic-salicylic acid peels. Our technicians pick the right strength depending on the patient’s personal preferences, skin type, and experience. Sometimes, if need be, the HydraFacial regime is followed by LED light therapy to calm the skin and tackle acne.
It is recommended not to use any exfoliating treatments like glycolic acid, enzymes, and over-the-counter medications for a minimum of two days after the treatment. You also need to avoid intense heat and anything that can cause skin irritation.
For most people, the results of HydraFacial can last anywhere from four to six weeks. It can vary depending on your skin type, sensitiveness, and other factors. It is recommended to schedule a HydraFacial session every month to get a new and lasting complexion.
