A HydroLuxx Hydrodermabrasion is a relatively new form of skin rejuvenation that uses jets of water to gently cleanse and exfoliate skin, resulting in improved suppleness and texture. As part of the procedure, a hydrating serum is applied, which provides additional rejuvenating benefits.
A HydraFacial treatment typically consists of three steps. During the first step, jets of water gently exfoliate dead skin cells and loosen any trapped impurities. The second step involves the application of an acid peel solution for deeper cleansing and to loosen accumulations of dirt and debris that clog pores.
During the third and final step, a vacuum attachment draws out any remaining impurities, and the hydrating serum is applied. This serum is designed to leave the skin refreshed and rejuvenated, and is custom-tailored with a specific combination of ingredients
Can it be used on all areas of the body?
Yes, it can; this treatment is very gentle and offers consistent results.
While Hydrafacials are most frequently performed on facial skin, they can also treat other areas of the body. They are sometimes performed on the back to treat acne in that area, and are also commonly used to address signs of aging on the hands and arms.
Hyperpigmentation: is a condition characterized by the appearance of scattered areas of skin that are darker than the surrounding skin. These dark patches can be caused by a number of factors, including acne, hormone imbalances, sun damage and aging. They may appear in a variety of shapes and sizes, ranging from small, round spots to large, irregular patches.
HydraLuxx Hydrafacial treatments reduce the appearance of hyperpigmented areas by exfoliating dark, discolored layers of surface skin. By increasing cellular turnover, treatments encourage the growth of new skin that is more evenly pigmented.
Reduces Appearance of Large Pores
Although it is not possible to shrink pores, it is possible to reduce their appearance. Pores often appear enlarged or dilated as the result of accumulated dead skin cells, sebum, dirt and other impurities. Clean, unclogged pores appear smaller. As such, Hydrafacials are able to reduce the appearance of large pores through deep cleansing.
no side effects (yay)
There are virtually no side effects to Hydra-facial treatments. A small number of patients may experience slight redness immediately following the procedure, but this will subside within a few hours.
However, certain pre-existing conditions may increase a person’s risk of experiencing irritation, including:
Shellfish allergies, as one of the solutions used in the treatment is made from shellfish
Open wounds on the treatment area
Active, inflamed acne breakout
Can Hydrafacial eliminate acne scar?
The exfoliating and collagen-increasing effects of Hydrafacial treatments can effectively smooth and reduce the appearance of superficial boxcar scars – depressed acne scars with defined edges. However, the resurfacing effect of Hydrafacial treatments does not penetrate skin tissue layers deeply enough to effectively address more severe acne scarring, such as icepick scars and rolling scars.
Mild-to-moderate acne scarring can typically be addressed with monthly appointments carried out over a 4–6 month period.
The HydraFacial is a nonirritating skin resurfacing procedure that’s suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin. HydraFacial treatments address scarring, hyperpigmentation and acne. They also restore a youthful look to the skin, plump and hydrate, and reduce the appearance of large pores.
In addition to being safe for most people, this treatment offers a number of strong potential benefits with virtually no side effects other than some redness shortly after treatment. However, the gentle action of the procedure also means that more sessions are needed to provide greater results. For more serious concerns—such as deep scars and wrinkles, and severe acne—Hydra-facial treatments are not likely to provide visible improvements.
