SKIN CARE: HYDRAFACIAL TREATMENT
This high-end treatment is designed to cleanse and hydrate your skin fully. The basic treatment process consists of four steps. The first involves in-depth skin cleansing and exfoliation to loosen and remove dead skin cells and reveal healthy-looking skin. Next comes a gentle glycolic acid peeling to prepare skin for the extraction of impurities, blackheads and pimples. Then, skin pores will be thoroughly cleaned using automated suction. The last step is hydration thanks to the benefits of hyaluronic acid and antioxidants that protect the skin and give it a plumper appearance. This treatment is more effective than microdermabrasion and requires no downtime like chemical peeling; it’s offered exclusively by certified technicians in an appropriate environment.
Beyond the basic package, HydraFacial® MD treatments also come in an array of packages designed to target specific areas or issues: anti-aging serums, light therapy, lymphatic drainage or diamond microdermabrasion.
Each step of the treatment is performed with a different patented HydroPeel® tip. Tips have multiple abrasive functions that ensure skin exfoliation on each pass is uniform. Its unique spiral-shaped design produces a suction effect called Vortex-Fusion®, the most effective process to loosen dead skin cells and decongest skin overall. Vortex-Fusion® also ensures maximal penetration and efficiency during the application of exclusive therapeutic antioxidant serums, peptides and hyaluronic acid.
The 4 steps process
- Cleaning & Exfoliation
- Removes keraticied (dead) cells from skin in order to reveal healthy skin
- Prepares skin to ease extraction of impurities
- Through automated suction, skin pores are deeply cleaned
- Last treatment step: Hydration thanks to the benefits of hyaluronic acid and powerful antioxidants that also protect and nourish skin
Assorted patented HydroPeel® tips are key treatment tools. Each single-use tip has its own unique design and has been developed with specific objectives in mind.
The classic blue tip:
This tip is used during the cleansing and exfoliation steps with Activ-4™ serum.
The teal tip
This tip is ideal for in-depth cleansing and extraction of impurities, blackheads and pimples and is used with Beta-HD™ and Gysal™ serums.
The transparent tip
This tip helps hydrating and rejuvenating serums penetrate better and is used with Antiox-6™, Antiox+™, DermaBuilder and Britenol serums.
The orange tip
This tip is used to treat hyperpigmentation or oily, acne-prone skin or to make enlarged skin pores appear smaller. It is used with Activ-4™ and Béta-HD™ serums.
Other much larger tips exist that are designed for use with HydraFacial™ felsewhere on the body. These tips are very efficient and keep the number of passes required to a minimum. They are used with Activ-4™ serum.
During the exfoliation step, multifunctional Activ-4™ serum will be used to contribute to relaxing skin surface and detach kerastisized (dead) cells, make space for new skin cell formation and thoroughly clean skin.
To exfoliate, we use Beta-HD™. In addition to rebalancing sebum production, this product possesses anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. This restoration serum helps boost the immune system and restore skin flora. This step is essential for patients with oily or acne-prone skin.
Hydration is the last step of the basic treatment. This serum contains an array of active agents such as hyaluronic acid A, E, B8 vitamins and powerful hydrating agents, antioxidants and micronutrients. Antitox-6™ targets free radicals, hydrates and protects the skin and help with skin regeneration.
As an alternative to Antitox-6™, Antitox+™, urther enables skin lightening, reduces the appearance of hyperpigmentation (dark) spots and even prevents them from appearing. Like Antitox-6™, has hydration and revitalization properties.
Hydrafacial® MD vials
Le GlySal Prep 7,5% is a serum we include in all HydraFacial MD treatments. Thanks to glycolic and salicylic acids, its two main exfoliating ingredients, this serum acts as a chemical peeling and prepares the skin for an in-depth pore cleansing. Since its action is gentle, it can be used on all skin types, including sensitive and delicate skin.
Dermabuilder is a serum that can be added to our basic Hydrafacial MD™ treatment to improve results. Made with a combination of unique active peptides, this serum is designed to correct surface and deep wrinkles, as well as prevent their development. One of its ingredients, acetyl octapeptide-3, acts like a neuro-moderator to slightly reduce facial muscle activity. Another key ingredient, palmitpyl-5, improves skin elasticity.
Britenol is a patented composition of natural source ingredients that helps lighten the complexion. When it’s applied locally on hyperpigmentation (dark) spots, skin complexion looks more even. This serum does not contain hydroquinone and works well on all skin types.
CTGF is the newcomer in Hydrafacial MD™ collection of serums. It includes a growth factor derived from natural stem cells, stimulates the production of collagen and has a major impact on the appearance of lines and wrinkles. This Hilux treatment should ideally be combined with red light therapy for maximum effect.
To end the treatment in style and increase the benefits of the serums, LED light therapy can be used after the last step in any Hydrafacial MD® treatment. Red LED light is used to increase skin firmness and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and other signs of aging. For those with oily or acne-prone skin or large skin pores, it’s preferable to use blue LED light.
Stand alone treatment or prior to your preferred Hydrafacial MD® treatment, you can opt for a facial and/or body lymphatic drainage. With two glass bells, light suction is exerted on the skin, to promote the natural elimination of toxins and a radiant complexion and reduce the appearance of under-eye bags. Lymphatic drainage is also strongly recommended for patients who have had liposuction.
