You’ve heard a lot about HydraFacial, and yes, all the rumors are true!
This facial treatment, which was a cult favorite just a few years ago, has now achieved mainstream status and has become the secret skin weapon amongst red carpet regulars like Kate Winslet and Eva Mendez.
Indeed, industry experts, beauty bloggers and Hollywood A-listers have been raving about this treatment for some time, contributing to its boom in popularity. But it’s the unique features of this treatment that will give it the staying power it needs to stick around for the long-term.
So how does it work? HydraFacial, available at the Philadelphia area’s Chapin Aesthetics, is performed using a vacuum based skin abrasion tip that removes dead skin cells while cleansing and exfoliating the healthy, underlying skin. The tip is also loaded with various serums that work to replenish nutrients in the skin that may otherwise be lost, such as antioxidants and peptides. The beauty of HydraFacial is that it can be customized to address each individual’s unique skin concerns. By first opening up clogged pores, the nutrient-rich serum can then be absorbed more deeply into the skin’s channels, where it can then take effect.
Whether your skin has been looking a little lackluster of late or you’ve been challenged with skin concerns like acne and congested pores, the HydraFacial can help transform the look of your skin in just a few short sessions. And take it from us – just one session is enough to get you hooked! Here’s why our patients are raving about HydraFacial:
1. It Actually Feels Good
Facials are not always a pleasant experience, especially if you’re looking to get real results. A hat and sunglasses have often been a necessary disguise after a session of pinching, squeezing and extractions that leave the face looking disrupted and red. With HydraFacial, the treatment is actually gentle and relaxing enough that many of our patients have even taken a quick nap! And while the suctioning can leave the skin looking a little pink, like a mid-afternoon flush, it resolves quickly. There’s nothing we love more than no downtime!
2. The Process is Quick
A HydraFacial treatment can be performed in as little as 30 minutes. In our book, that makes it a perfect lunchtime pick-me-up!
3. Safe for all Skin Types
Another reason we love the HydraFacial – this all-in-one facial is safe for virtually all skin types, conditions and concerns, and can dramatically improve skin tone and texture. And if you’ve had an ongoing battle with acne, it can help with that too.
4. Tailored to address your needs
Whether your skin has been looking a little worse for ware, or you’ve been challenged with a specific skin concern, HydraFacial can be customized to meet your skin’s unique requirements. The serums can be custom-formulated to address fine lines and wrinkles, congested pores, hyper-pigmentation and acne-prone skin, which encouraging healthy collagen production and a more balanced skin tone. There are also several boosters available, which you can elect to have as part of your HydraFacial experience, that also target specific skin issues.
5. Visible Results
It only takes one treatment to get you hooked. However, for optimal results, we recommended a treatment plan of six sessions, spaced one week apart. This is followed up by a maintenance treatment once every two months, after the six initial treatment sessions are complete.
The treatment is quick and effective, and results are immediate. Patients love that their skin feels smoother, brighter, cleaner and more hydrated in just a few quick steps!
