If we told you we could exfoliate and deeply cleanse your facial skin, and include extraction, without all the subsequent redness and sensitivity, you’d probably say, “Count me in!”
To which we’d say, “When do you want your HydraFacial?”
HydraFacial MD® is the incredibly popular spa skin therapy that delivers clearer, healthier skin for all skin types without any discomfort, downtime, or recovery. Oh, and it all happens in just 30 minutes at Saltz Plastic Surgery/Saltz Spa Vitoria!
What is HydraFacial MD®?
HydraFacial MD® is hydradermabrasion. What exactly is that? It combines deep cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration, and anti-oxidant delivery simultaneously in a four-step process. The treatment delivers some amazing improvements in your skin, all in a relaxing, painless 30 minutes.
Who is a good candidate for a HydraFacial?
Many skin treatments, such as laser resurfacing and chemical peels, can cause hyperpigmentation issues with certain skin tones. But HydraFacial MD® is suitable for all skin types, including thinning, aging skin and dry or oily skin. Even if you have sensitive skin that erupts after a typical facial extraction session, it won’t overreact to a HydraFacial. Plus, once the exfoliation and extraction is complete, HydraFacial delivers different serums into your skin that target your specific skin type and specific skin problems.
These are skincare problems we target at Saltz Spa Vitoria with HydraFacial MD®:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Elasticity and firmness
- Uneven tone
- Brown spots
- Oily, congested skin
- Enlarged pores
What is the HydraFacial MD® treatment?
At Saltz Plastic Surgery/Saltz Spa Vitoria, our HydraFacial MD® treatment is a four-step process that cleanses, evenly exfoliates, and extracts impurities and dead skin cells while at the same time replenishing vital nutrients including antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid. The treatment is delivered through a proprietary wand that combines a gentle rotating brush with suction pressure. This takes the place of the crystals sprayed on with microdermabrasion. The HydraFacial gently vacuums out your pores, while pushing in skin improving serums.
This is what happens in your 30-minute Saltz HydraFacial:
- Step 1 — Vortex-Exfoliation
We attach the first head that uses Activ-4 serum and suction to remove surface dead skin cells and open and clear pores. This uncovers the brighter, healthier skin beneath.
- Step 2 — Vortex-Peel
In step two, through the wand we apply Glysal serum, which consists of a mixture of glycolic and salicylic acids, the ingredients used for light peels. But this peel won’t have the usual post-peel scaling.
- Step 3 — Vortex-Extraction
In step three, the wand applies patented, painless vortex-suction that cleans out pores with the help of Beta-HD serum.
- Step 4 — Vortex-Fusion
Now that your skin is thoroughly cleaned and exfoliated, in step four we apply one of four Antiox+ serums (see below) through the wand. This serum application is the final step of the HydraFacial and replenishes your skin with antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid.
A serum to fit your specific skincare needs
One of the cool features of the HydraFacial MD® is that it can be varied depending on your specific skin type. This happens with the infusion of various serums.
After cleaning and exfoliation, the HydraFacial MD® procedure infuses various serums to replenish your skin. We offer four different serums, depending on your unique skin needs.
- Brightalive Booster Serum — Designed to brighten skin tone and lessen the appearance of discoloration.
- Growth Factor Boost — Contains naturally occurring proteins specifically designed to restore skin health, which helps diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Dermabuilder Boost — Designed to effectively address fine lines, skin tone evenness, and texture.
- Britenol Boost — Specially formulated to target dark spots and sun-damaged areas.
Is the HydraFacial painful and is there any downtime?
Many people have mixed feelings about facials that include extraction because extractions hurt. Plus, they tend to leave the skin red and sensitive for a day or so. Other exfoliation procedures can leave the skin dry and sensitive.
With HydraFacial MD®, there is none of that. The procedure is relaxing and painless. And there isn’t any recovery time. The HydraFacial is completely non-invasive.
What kind of results will I see from a HydraFacial at Saltz Spa Vitoria?
If you follow the aesthetic industry at all, you’ve probably heard about the HydraFacial because it delivers visible results without any downtime or sensitivity. The HydraFacial delivers vastly improved hydration, while helping to eliminate or lessen the appearance of fine lines, hyperpigmentation, oil and congestion, and even creases in the nasolabial folds. Despite involving a light chemical peel and pore extraction, the procedure has no pain — it actually is a pleasant spa-like experience — and doesn’t have the usual redness and irritation that follows most peels/exfoliations.
How many HydraFacials will I need?
The duration of your results varies by the patient, but your clearer pores, improved hydration, and the effects from your anti-oxidant serums endure. You’ll see visible improvement in your skin after just a single HydraFacial MD® treatment, but to continue keeping your skin looking its best, we recommend monthly HydraFacials.
