We often hear patients ask “what’s the difference between the HydraFacial and microdermabrasion?”
Both Hydrafacial and microdermabrasion treat fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, pigmentation and boost collagen production. Both treatments aim to resurface the skin and remove dead skin cells from the skin’s surface to reveal a glowing complexion.
However, the award-winning Hydrafacial cleanses and exfoliates the skin, while extracting impurities and dead skin cells, simultaneously replenishing the skin with a cocktail of nutrients like Hyaluronic Acid, antioxidants and peptides. So, it’s alike to receiving the benefits of microdermabrasion and a chemical peel in one easy treatment.
HydraFacial treatments repair environmental damage, minimising the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, giving the skin more volume and firmness. It is less abrasive during the exfoliation process when compared with traditional microdermabrasion – traditional microdermabrasion can be abrasive and leave the skin red and irritated post-treatment.
The 4-in-1 Vortex Technology™ exfoliates, peels, extracts impurities and hydrates the skin.
The HydraFacial treatment starts out with the blue tip that glides across your skin, using a vacuum powered stream of Activ-4™ serum to gently remove the dead skin cells, sebum and dirt accumulated on the surface of your skin during the day.
The Activ-4™ serum is comprised of lactic and glycolic acids to cleanse and dislodge the gunk inside the pores; algae extract to sooth and hydrate; yeast extract to smooth fine lines and firm the skin.
After the skin is exfoliated and cleaned, the teal tip comes into action, infusing the skin with the Glysal™ serum: a mix of salicylic and glycolic acids to help loosen the deeper dirt, dead skin and sebum from the pores. This step is incredibly important as the accumulation of sebum is what causes black and whiteheads, often resulting in acne.
After loosening up all the dirt, the teal tip stays on but the Beta-HD™ serum is used. Beta-HD™ has ingredients such as Salicylic Acid to aid in vacuuming all of the dirt out of the skin. Then, to hydrate and sooth your skin, it also has Honey Extract and Spirea Ulmaria Flower Extract.
There is the option of adding the DermaBuilder™ serum into this step: simultaneously infusing the pores with wrinkle reducing serums consisting of several types of peptides.
The Vortex-fusion is the final step: when the pores are all clean, and the clear tip comes out to infuse the skin with an antioxidant serum called Antiox-6. Antiox-6 is a combination of Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamins A & E, White Tea Extract, Horse Chestnut Extract, Rosemary Extract and Turtle Shell Flakes, that help to plump up your skin and protect it from free radicals at the same time.
Traditional microdermabrasion has been tried and tested; the award-winning HydraFacial treatment goes above and beyond to also nourish the skin after the exfoliation steps.
