Summer is the perfect time to show off your best features and to display healthy, glowing skin. After a long winter, and even though we’re well into summer, you may feel like your skin looks a little dull, less than its best.
Fortunately, the HydraFacial® might be just what you need to refresh your skin and give it that summer glow. At eleven19 Medical Spa + Weight Loss, we offer this skin-enhancing treatment.
Here’s a bit of information about the HydraFacial and why our providers believe it might be a good choice for you.
What the HydraFacial is
A HydraFacial is a multi-step facial that focuses on cleansing, exfoliating, doing pore extractions, and injecting serums into your skin. A survey on the plastic surgery site RealSelf says that 98% of the people who have had it done said it was “worth it.”
And we believe the HydraFacial is “worth it” because we can easily customize the treatment to your specific skin concerns.
If your biggest problem is your pores, we can tailor your HydraFacial to focus primarily on those. If your skin looks dull, we might do more exfoliation. It’s all designed to give you the best individual results possible.
How the HydraFacial works and why it’s different
The HydraFacial uses a patented tool to perform your facial. It’s powered by water, which produces an overall hydrating effect on your skin. It’s designed to be safe for most skin types and tones and is particularly effective for aging skin.
In addition to cleansing, exfoliating, and pore extractions, the HydraFacial can deliver skin-loving serums like hyaluronic acid, peptides, and glycolic acid. These substances can have a hydrating and plumping effect on your skin.
You shouldn’t experience any pain with the HydraFacial. In fact, you’ll leave our medical spa with glowing, refreshed skin. You’ll look like you’ve just returned from a vacation.
Who shouldn’t get the HydraFacial
A HydraFacial is intended for nearly everyone, regardless of skin tone or type. But while it makes most people look better and feel more confident, there are a couple of skin types that may not see benefits from it.
People with sensitive or acne-prone skin may find the HydraFacial too strong for their needs. If this applies to you, you might be better served by a different type of facial, and our expert providers can advise you about the best treatment for your skin.
Even if you do not have particularly sensitive skin, you’ll still need to stop the use of any retinol or retinoid products before you have your HydraFacial.
The results you can expect
The effects of your HydraFacial can leave you with glowing and refreshed skin. Unlike other treatments, which may take several sessions to see results, you can see the benefits of the HydraFacial immediately.
You can even feel that it’s working, especially as it’s working to unclog your pores. We can actually see all the dead skin cells and gunk coming out of your pores. But you may experience some momentary redness or irritation after the procedure.
The HydraFacial results aren’t permanent. Most people find that they need to come back in about a month to have the process repeated and to keep their skin looking its best.
If you have more questions about the HydraFacial or would like to experience it, call one of our offices for an appointment. We have locations in Santa Ana, Fullerton, and Ontario, California.
