HydraFacial MD and PERK a Fabulous combination. Your skin will love you!

HydraFacial MD– the cutting edge, non-invasive skin resurfacing treatment that combines cleansing,

exfoliation, extraction, hydration including Vortex-Fusion of antioxidants, peptides and hyaluronic acid.

It’s immediately effective resulting in clearer, more beautiful skin with no discomfort or downtime. The

HydraFacial MD is suitable for all skin types and targets specific skin concerns including sun damage, fine

lines and wrinkles, dehydration, acne, congested pores and oily skin. The HydraFacial MD is also an

excellent post laser or post chemical peel treatment. The treatment is soothing, moisturizing, non-invasive

and non-irritating.

 

 

Why HydraFacial MD:

Every day we are exposed to the elements – stress, pollution, toxins and most importantly, sunlight. These

are known as free radicals, which is the root of skin damage and aging. HydraFacial MD not only removes

the surface damage such as dead skin cells and impurities, but it also replenishes the skin with antioxidants

through Vortex-Fusion, the most advanced application of nutrients to the skin.

 

How HydraFacial MD works:

Each treatment uses a series of HydroPeel tips. The unique spiral design creates a vortex affect to easily

dislodge and remove impurities while simultaneously introducing hydrating skin solutions with potent

antioxidants. The treatment includes a 5 step process:

1. Cleansing and exfoliation. Dead skin cells are removed to reveal healthy new skin.

2. Acid Peel. This gentle peel helps loosen dirt and debris from pores without irritation.

3. Extractions. Painless, extractions with vortex suction to clean out pores.

4. Hydration. Antioxidants and hyaluronic acid are Vortex-Fused to nourish and protect.

5. Protection. Pharmaceutical grade products are applied to help maintain results and protect your skin.

 

 

Combine your HydraFacial MD with additional treatments for your special needs:

 

*DermaBuilder: Additional booster to improve fine lines, wrinkles, firmness, tone and texture.

*Britenol: Brightening treatment that reduces the appearance of hyperpigmentation.

*LED Light Therapy: Gentle Light Emitting Diodes (LED) in a non-ablative, non-invasive treatment for

sun damage, aging skin and acne. Depending on your skin condition, a blue or red LED is used.

*Lymphatic Treatment: Detoxifies and reduces puffiness and congestion of skin and sinuses.

*Peel upgrade: Upgrade from the standard 7.5% glycolic acid peel to either 15% or 30% for additional

exfoliation.

*PERK: Combines both in-office and at-home treatments. PERK can be used to rejuvenate the entire face,

or focus on special areas like the lips and eyes. This treatment can be used in conjunction with HydraFacial

MD® or on its own.

      Micro-Needling

      An alternative; holistic, non-ablative therapy that stimulates collagen and repairs damaged skin.  Micro needling is a unique; FDA approved technique that can be used for various skin conditions. These include aging, scars, hyper-pigmentation, large pores, and uneven skin tone and texture. Chinese medicine has long known the anti-aging benefits of “needling”.

       

      The micro-pen has eleven micro-needles that are used to penetrate the surface of the skin and this naturally stimulates collagen production. The small microscopic wounds activate your own healing cascade and result in the release of growth factors.  These growth factors stimulate the proliferation of fibroblasts and platelets.  This process leads to new collagen, resulting in healthy, glowing, tighter skin!
      This exciting procedure can be performed on almost all skin types with little to no down time! Major advantages include improved appearance of skin; it is non-ablative, cost effective and safe!

       

      What is Micro-Needling?

       

      Skin Needling, also called Micro-Needling therapy, and Collagen Induction Therapy is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a Micro-pen that uses  tiny needles to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to produce collagen and elastin.  The skin’s repair process results in a thicker dermis with softer wrinkles. 

       

      What are the benefits?

       

      Wrinkle reduction, texture, tone improvement and softer, younger-looking skin.  New collagen production reverses years of sun damage, hyper-pigmentation, uneven skin tone, acne scars and stretch marks.

       

      What will I look like after the treatment?

       

      Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin.  The total healing time depends on the depth of needles used and the number of overlapping passes your skincare professional performs.  Most patients heal completely in 24 hours. 

       

      When will I see results?

       

      Patients notice an immediate “glow” to their skin.  Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several weeks.  Results continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment as collagen production continues.

      Dermaplaning

      This safe, non-invasive procedure exfoliates the dead cells on the outer layer of your skin, leaving it softer, smoother and brighter with the added benefit of removing “peach fuzz”.  The entire treatment usually lasts 20 – 30 minutes.  You will notice results, especially the absence of fine facial hairs, for about 6 to 8 weeks.  Dermaplaning is safe and pain-free and requires no downtime.  Dermaplaning is effective on its own and can be used in addition to;  HydraFacial MD, Chemical Peels, IPL and Non-Ablative laser treatments for even better results.
