If you keep yourself in the know about popular skincare regimens, you’ve likely heard of Hydrafacial by now. It’s the best way to give your skin the moisture, exfoliation, and glow it deserves. And at Delta Laser Skin Care Centre, conveniently located in Delta, BC and serving Delta, Surrey, Langley, and White Rock, you can get the treatment you deserve.
Why a Hydrafacial?
There is simply no other skin treatment like it. Let’s look at some of the reasons that this treatment stands out.
Short Treatment Time
This facial treatment should only take you about thirty minutes. Unlike other treatments that can force you to take hours away from your day, you can get this facial on your lunch break!
Normally, when you go to a spa for a facial or other skin treatment, the results depend largely upon the skill and experience of your esthetician. But with this skin treatment, the results are consistent no matter the experience and skill level of the professional you’re working with. That’s because this treatment centers around a Hydrafacial machine. The esthetician is necessary to run the machine, but they don’t affect the outcome. The machine does the work and gives you perfect results every time.
Most skin treatments are recommended for just one kind of skin or another. They may help treat some conditions, but not others. But not this facial. This kind of skin treatment is perfect for all skin types. No matter who you are, you can benefit from this skin treatment. That’s because this treatment helps basically every skin problem. Whether you want a deep clean of your clogged pores, to reduce pimples, or get rid of fine lines, dark spots, or hyper-pigmentation, this treatment does it all.
No Side Effects
With most skin treatments, you can expect some downtime before the results make themselves clear. But not with this kind of facial. Your skin will immediately glow. You won’t leave with red marks, swelling, or inflammation. You won’t have to deal with any pain or soreness. You simply get your facial and walk out with the best skin of your life.
Works With Other Treatments
When getting a traditional facial, you have to limit your treatments. You can’t walk in and get a traditional facial on the same day that you’re looking to get a Botox injection or some lip filler. But with this new type of facial, that isn’t a problem. You can come in and get your facial along with whatever other face and skin treatments you’re looking for. That’s because this kind of facial doesn’t damage your skin the way traditional ones do.
When getting your facial, there are so many ways to customize your experience and tailor the treatment to focus on your individual priorities. There are many boosters to choose from. For instance, your esthetician can include vitamin C to brighten your complexion, or you can ask them to infuse growth factors to help fight fine lines. They can even customize the tool’s suction power to increase circulation around the eyes to get rid of dark circles.
How Long Does It Take?
Let’s look at the machine and how each step of the process works to get your skin to a healthy place in only thirty minutes!
How the Device Works
First, let’s review the machine that makes this all possible. A wand extends from the machine, and your esthetician will move this wand over your face during each of the steps. There are four different head attachments to the wand, each with its own abilities. Your esthetician will change the heads throughout the treatment to get the best results.
One of the most important aspects of the wand is that it has the capability to both expel and vacuum. As the wand releases various serums into your skin, it vacuums the used serum, along with dead skin cells and gunk released from your pores, back up.
Step One: Vortex Cleansing
The first part of the treatment is vortex cleaning and gentle exfoliation. The machine uses a deplaning tool to sweep away all the dead skin cells, dirt, and other debris. This part of the treatment is similar to microdermabrasion. But, unlike traditional microdermabrasion, this treatment isn’t painful and doesn’t leave your skin looking red and puffy. Rather than needing to use actual abrasion to remove dead skin cells, this gentle and effective treatment uses a combination of a deplaning tool and serum to remove dead and unhealthy skin cells.
By removing these dead cells, you make your skin capable of reflecting more light, which gives your skin a healthier and brighter appearance. This initial exfoliation also helps to open up your pores, allowing them to be hydrated throughout the process.
Step Two: Acid Peel
We know, an acid peel sounds painful, but it isn’t. Unlike other acid peels that leave your skin red and stinging, this acid peel is different. It’s gentle enough to go onto the skin unnoticed. The acid peel is made with a mix of non-irritant salicylic and glycolic acids. The mixture is released into your skin through the wand, and it helps to loosen the debris and dirt that is deep inside your pores. Normal facial washing doesn’t reach debris that is deep inside your pores, so no matter how fastidious a face washer you are, the debris and dirt are still there. The acid peel in this step also helps prevent acne from forming in the future, because it cleanses your pores on a deep level.
Step Three: Vortex Extraction
Extraction is known to be the most painful part of the facial experience, but not when it comes to this kind of facial. This method of extraction is more effective than the traditional way, but without the pain. That’s because the serums in the acid peel loosen all the gunk clogging your pores, so they’re ready to be lifted out without the poking and prodding necessary in traditional extraction.
Instead, this amazing machine uses vacuum suction through the wand to simply lift all the dirt and debris clogging your pores out and into a receptacle. The elaborate vortex extraction leaves your skin unharmed and without all the dirt that has been clogging your pores.
Step Four: Vortex Fusion
The last step brings the whole treatment together. The vortex fusion tool applies a serum made of collagen and antioxidants that works to hydrate your skin and give it extra elasticity. The peptides and hyaluronic acid in the serum also work to detoxify the skin. Together, these ingredients give your skin the hydration and health it deserves.
That’s it! Because the machine takes care of everything and does it so gently, it only takes 30 minutes to accomplish all these steps.
How Can I Personalize My Treatment?
As we discussed earlier, one of the reasons this facial treatment is so popular is because it is infinitely customizable. Let’s review some of the most popular boosters available during your Hydrafacial treatment. While there are even more boosters available to help you customize your treatment, these are just some of the most popular options:
Alastin Trihex-Pro Booster
This booster is a proprietary blend of peptides, phosphatidylserine, and Tremella Fusiformis that improves the skin’s ability to retain water. Together, these ingredients work to clear out damaged collagen and elastin and support the skin’s ability to produce new elastin and collagen. This results in a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as improved overall texture and tone of the complexion. Overall, this booster helps give you a more youthful complexion.
This booster mixes key peptides that are known to reduce fine lines and optimize the skin’s regeneration abilities with NeoDermyl, a needle-free collagen and elastin filler. Together, these ingredients energize the skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines, and leave the skin feeling radiant and glowing.
Circadia Protect Plus
This booster uses peptides that increase skin hydration and Hylauronic Acid, AcquaCell, and Brightenyl. Hyaluronic Acid is designed for maximizing hydration; AcquaCell works to increase hydration levels in the skin and diminish wrinkles; and Brightenyl helps to protect your skin from inflammation. Together, these ingredients protect your skin from free radical damage, reduce redness and inflammation, and give you optimal hydration.
This booster uses Vitamin C, Bearberry Extract and Alpha-Arbutin. Vitamin C provides antioxidant properties while the other ingredients work to brighten your complexion. Together, these ingredients brighten your complexion and balance your skin tone while simultaneously minimizing dark spots and sunspots.
Perk Total Eye
This booster includes Total Eye 3-in-1, which works to renew your skin. The Phytomoist helps to maintain the water balance of your skin over time, leaving it supple and soft. The AldavineTM 5X helps to keep your capillaries healthy and minimize the puffiness around your eyes as well as reduce the pigmentation that leaves you with dark, puffy under-eye circles.
The Actineyes helps to protect your skin from impurities and promotes collagen to help fight under-eye bags. Together, these ingredients brighten and hydrate the skin around the eyes and help to reduce the puffy, dark circles beneath your eyes.
Zo Rozatrol Booster
This booster combines lactose and rosa canina extract. Lactose is the protein found in milk, and it helps to diminish redness in the skin and reduce inflammation. The rosa canina extract controls sebum in your skin and minimizes your pores. Together, the ingredients in this booster help to relieve red, sensitive skin while detoxifying and replenishing hydration.
Zo Brightalive Booster
This booster uses glycerin, which helps with hydration replenishment and retention, and a proprietary skin brightening complex that blocks the production of pigmentation. This booster evens the skin tone, reduces the appearance of brown spots, and prevents new brown spots and other new pigmentations from forming. Additionally, it helps to restore hydration and replenish your skin’s hydration balance.
