Move over dermabrasion. Hydrafacial MD is the new patented, insanely moisturizing AND exfoliating facial treatment that will make you ask yourself, “Why didn’t I try it sooner?”
Exfoliation is important for healthy skin at any age. As our cell turnover rate slows down—especially in our 30s and 40s—it becomes even more important. To give you a quick comparison, babies renew their skin cells every two weeks; by the time we turn 50, this same process takes more than 6 weeks! Plus, if the top layer of our skin is really just lots and lots of dead skin cells piled up on top of each other, how can our expensive antioxidant and retinol serums do their job? (Hint: They can’t.)
All of this adds up to one thing: bye-bye glow.
Unfortunately, microdermabrasion—once considered the holy grail of manual exfoliation treatments— can be too harsh for many skin types, resulting in dryness, flakiness, broken capillaries and other skin irritation. That’s why we’re loving Hydrafacial’s powerful-but-gentle exfoliation process. This high-tech treatment gives all skin types an instant pick-me-up as we move into the colder fall and winter months.
Hydrafacial is like no facial you’ve ever had. It delivers maximum hydration and exfoliation to leave your skin ultra clean, smooth and bright—all in about 45 minutes. It’s perfect for anyone who wants to minimize fine lines, large pores, pigmentation, acne and acne scars and boost the moisture content in their skin.
During your appointment, your practitioner will carefully assess your skin and customize your Hydrafacial treatment to address your unique needs. You can add one or more of the following specialized products for even better results:
- Brintenol for hyperpigmentation; an ingredient three-times more powerful than hydroquinone
- Dermabuilder peptides for fine lines and wrinkles
- CTGF for skin regeneration; a potent growth factor only available through a medical office
What sets Hydrafacial apart from other exfoliating treatments? It uses a double helix–like vacuuming action to exfoliate dead skin cells. But unlike, microdermabrasion, which relies on an abrasive, sandpaper-like tip made of crushed diamonds, the Hydrafacial uses a medical-grade serum to help loosen dead cells and debris, while simultaneously vacuuming the skin’s surface with a soft silicone tip and infusing the skin with moisture. This de-gunks pores without pain or trauma and leaves you with ultra-clean, calm skin with results that last.
Even better: Hydrafacial has zero downtime. Typically getting a facial right before a big event is a rookie move. But Hydrafacial’s gentle and effective five-step process cleans, tones, exfoliates, treats and hydrates without redness or irritation. What’s more, it makes painful extractions a thing of the past—which is great news for anyone with sensitive skin. This means you’ll walk out of Serenity MedSpa looking fabulous, ready for your dinner date or special event.
