I am giddy with excitement because I have been searching for a few years for an amazing treatment that will give my clients truly healthy, hydrated skin. Guess what? I finally found it! So I am absolutely ecstatic to introduce HydraFacial™…just in time to beautify your skin for the holidays.


What Is HydraFacial™?

HydraFacial™ is a breakthrough in skin care treatments. As the name suggests, it hydrates! If you’ve learned anything from my past articles, you know that dry, red, irritated skin is proven to increase the signs of aging. Good hydration is the foundation of healthy skin. The HydraFacial™ separates itself from all other skin-resurfacing treatments because of HOW it hydrates and improves the appearance of the skin without irritating it.


The HydraFacial™ resurfacing procedure addresses all aspects of your skin’s health through a combination of cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration AND the addition of antioxidant protection and anti-aging skin rejuvenation. It is the trifecta of effective facial treatments, combining:

  • The exfoliation and resurfacing of microdermabrasion;
  • The skin renewal of a chemical peel; and
  • The hydration and extractions of a deep-cleansing facial.


The HydraFacial™ ranks above intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment as a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that delivers instant results in tone and texture with no discomfort or downtime. Clients leave a HydraFacial™ treatment with immediate results: clearer, soothed, moisturized, non-irritated, more beautiful skin.


How Does It Work?

The HydraFacial™ uses a unique five-step approach.


1. Vortex-Cleaning™—The patented HydroPeel® tip hydrates the skin with a nutrient-rich solution that deeply cleanses the pores, and softens and lifts away impurities.


2. HydroPeel® Exfoliation—The HydroPeel® tip uses its multiple abrasive edges to exfoliate the skin several times with each pass to achieve better, more even skin resurfacing without irritation.


3. Painless Vortex-Extraction™—The vortex (powerful circulation of liquid) effect easily dislodges and removes blackheads, whiteheads and sebum, allowing for quick and painless extractions.


4. Vortex-Fusion™ of Antioxidants—The unique spiral tip employs a patented method for infusing hydrating skin solutions and potent antioxidants into the skin, improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, oily skin and hyperpigmentation.


5. LED Light Therapy—Light therapy provides additional benefits after the HydraFacial™ treatment. LED light therapy uses specific types of light, which give off energy that stimulates your cells, thereby increasing your skin’s production of collagen and elastin. In turn, your skin becomes firmer, less wrinkled and younger looking. The treatment’s red LED light helps improve the appearance of skin firmness and resilience, while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and other signs of aging. The blue LED light is extremely beneficial for people who suffer from oily skin or breakouts. And the combination of red and blue LED lights is helpful in reducing the appearance of rosacea.


Would A HydraFacial™ Be Good For Me?                                       

In a word…ABSOLUTELY! One of the reasons I’m so excited about the HydraFacial™ treatment is because it IS designed and effective for most skin types, so the majority of women—and men!—easily can tolerate the treatment.


The HydraFacial™ serums specifically target your skin issues, including sun damage, blackheads and whiteheads, enlarged pores, acne, brown spots, uneven skin tone and the fine lines and wrinkles of early aging. The best part: it’s not just a quick-fix-it procedure. The HydraFacial improves the quality of your skin, actually helping to making it healthy—long term!


The HydraFacial™ is excellent for:

  • Sun damage, hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone;
  • Fine lines, wrinkles, dry or dehydrated skin;
  • Improving skin’s clarity, resilience and firmness; and
  • Oily, acne-prone skin, congested pores and enlarged pores—which is very common in men and teenagers.


How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Most people see results after just one treatment. The smooth results and hydration may last for five to seven days—or even longer. A series of six treatments is recommended for fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and acne. Special pricing is available for treatment packages.


The HydraFacial™ has been a favorite pre-red-carpet treatment for the stars and even the Prince of Monaco. This breakthrough skin resurfacing procedure has been featured on Fox, NBC, ABC, CBS and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, as well as on the magazine pages of Allure, Essence and InStyle Wedding.
