5 Reasons People Love Getting a HydraFacial!
- Posted on: Aug 25 2018
One of the things that I love about this business hearing feedback directly from our patients.
At Azul Medical Spa, familiar faces come in all the time, looking for the latest in skincare procedures. I enjoy great getting to know our patients better at each visit and working collaboratively to hone in on what treatments give the best result. Whenever I ask about favorite treatments, their answers usually include HydraFacialMD. I am a huge believer in this treatment, and that belief gets stronger with every rave review from our patients.
The HydraFacialMD treatment at Azul combines cleaning & exfoliation, an acid peel, extractions, and hydration – all into one incredibly advanced facial that leaves skin feeling healthy and rejuvenated after just one treatment.
Let me break it down into each component:
1) Effective Exfoliation
You might not think about exfoliation when you hear the words “Hydra” and “Facial”, but exfoliation is one of the absolute best benefits of a HydraFacial. The special vortex tip along with our specialized serums is almost magical. The negative pressure portion of the tip lifts the cells ever so slightly. This happens at the same time the infusion portion of the tip is pushing serums deep into the skin to loosen old cells and free up cellular debris. The vortex is pulling away the liquid serum combined with the old cellular matter – leaving fresh young cells on the surface.
Because this is not a manual exfoliation, cells are not rubbed or scraped away, they are gently separated and lifted using mild suction and specially formulated liquid serums. It’s one of the reasons a HydraFacial leaves almost no sign of sign manipulation, often just a mild pink reflective of blood flow to the young newer cells.
2) It Keeps Skin Hydrated
Well, it does say “hydra” right in the name!
When you live in Florida, you need to keep your skin moisturized. The heat and humidity can really do a number on your skin, especially during our hottest months. Putting on moisturizer in the morning and remembering to drink lots of water throughout the day is important, but a little bit of extra targeted hydration is always a plus. That’s just what HydraFacialMD gives you.
During the treatment, we use a special vortex (negative pressure) tip that lifts cells allowing our special serums to better penetrate, infusing your skin with hydrating serums, antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, or other specialty skincare products. This deep skin hydration helps keep your skin healthy and moisturized, no matter what the temperature outside!
3) It’s Completely Customizable
Some people feel that they can’t get a facial because they have super-sensitive skin, but that’s part of the beauty of the HydraFacialMD – it’s completely customizable!
Take the acid peel portion of the facial. For some, acid peels may be too harsh. But the acid peel in the HydraFacialMD is so gentle that you should only feel a slight tingle on your skin. What if that’s still too intense? Then we can go even lighter, tailoring it to your skin type. Similarly, if your skin can handle it, we can crank up the intensity and give you a deeper peel. We customize for skin type and maximum result.
4) It’s Super Quick
Sure, it can be nice to slow down and have a long 50 minute relaxing facial, but what if you don’t have the time? The HydraFacialMD is more about therapy and isn’t the kind of facial where you lie peacefully with cucumbers on your eyes and a mask on your face. It’s a 20 to 30 minute, highly effective treatment that you can do over lunch or before dinner. In fact, many patients get a HydraFacial prior to an event so their skin retains the plumpness of hydration and the effect of minimizing fine lines.
5) There’s Absolutely No Downtime
We aren’t going to lie, many of our cosmetic procedures can have some sort of recovery time associated with them, especially the surgical ones. But that isn’t the case with the HydraFacialMD. This facial so gentle that you will walk out of our Medical Spa with a smile on your glowing, healthy face! There is no downtime associated with the procedure at all. At most, your skin might be a little pink for a few hours afterward from the increased blood flow, but that’s it. The next day, the only evidence that you had a HydraFacial will be your healthy, glowing skin!
There is a good reason why the HydraFacialMD is called the Facial of the Stars! Celebrities need to look their best anytime they’re in the spotlight which is why HydraFacialMD is so popular. Because of the lack of downtime, they can get this facial one afternoon and be on the red carpet by that evening, with flawless, camera-perfect skin. Celebrities from Kate Winslet and Amy Poehler to Beyoncé and Paris Hilton have taken advantage of the HydraFacialMD. So many times celebrity care is too expensive for most of us. Not true with this facial, prices are usually under $175 and if it’s one of our monthly specials it may be as low as $155 – about the same price as a traditional facial.
These are only five of the reasons why the HydraFacialMD is one of the most popular treatments offered at Azul’s Medical Spa, but there are many, many more.
