Pollution, toxins, wind, and sun exposure dehydrate your skin, which can leave it looking dull and aged. We now offer HydraFacial MD at our plastic surgery center for Pocatello, Idaho Falls, and Jackson Hole patients. Calling this advanced treatment a “facial” is an understatement—the HydraFacial is next-generation skin care that combines hydradermabrasion, serums, and LED therapy, leaving your skin looking years younger without the need for surgery.
What is HydraFacial MD?
The HydraFacial is completely customizable based on your unique concerns. It uses powerful Vortex-Fusion® technology to help you achieve an even, healthy-looking complexion. The treatment is a multi-step process:
- Exfoliation: A specially formulated serum removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells, so your physician has a blank canvas to work on.
- Peel: A blend of alpha hydroxy acids is applied to the face to clear out your pores and deliver that natural glow without irritating the skin.
- Extraction: A innovative Vortex-Fusion handpiece removes blackheads and other impurities that can lead to acne and unevenness.
- Fusion: The handpiece distributes hydrating serum to replenish the skin with nutrients that can protect it from additional damage.
What is the facial designed to target?
The HydraFacial is safe for a variety of skin types, tones, and textures and can correct a number of skin imperfections, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Texture issues
- Dark spots
- Uneven tone or dullness
You may want to discuss combining the HydraFacial with other nonsurgical treatments like fillers or BOTOX® to achieve more dramatic results.
What can I expect from treatment?
The treatment typically takes about 45 minutes to an hour, and you will immediately notice improvements. Patients feel no discomfort during treatment; instead, it is relaxing and invigorating. Many describe it as feeling like a cool paintbrush moving over the face.
Additionally, there is no downtime associated with treatment; patients often schedule their appointments on their lunch breaks and return to work right after. The results from a single session last about a week, so it can be a great way to prep for a big event.
Sometimes patients opt for repeat treatments monthly. As you undergo these additional treatments, the cumulative effect will become noticeable. Regular HydraFacials and diligent at-home skincare will help you maintain long-lasting skin health.
