Can I go about my normal nightly skin care routine?
Depends, cleansers or moisturizers containing scrubs, RetinA, or acids of any kind need to be avoided for 7-10 days. A sunscreen with a high SPF is also required for use for at least the first 2 weeks.
Is Hydradermabrasion painful?
No, not at all. In fact, many of our clients fall asleep for it is a relaxing treatment.
Why Is A Hydradermabrasion Good For My Skin?
Hydration is the foundation of healthy, radiant skin. Irritation and dryness of the skin have been proven to increase the signs of aging. This treatment is non-irritating and hydrating.
How Long Does The Treatment Take? Is There Any Downtime Or Pain Involved?
The Hydradermabrasion treatment takes as little as 30 minutes. The treatment is often described as feeling like “a cool paintbrush moving over my face”. You may return to your normal activities and wear makeup immediately after the treatment as there is no downtime.
What Results May Be Expected? How Many Treatments Are Needed To See Results? How Long Do The Results Last?
Many people report seeing a visible refinement of the skin and an even, radiant skin tone after just one treatment. The smooth results and hydration may last 5 to 7 days or possibly even longer. A series of six treatments is recommended for improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hyper-pigmentation, acne and oily skin. After your first series of treatments, you may want to maintain your results with a Hydradermabrasion every 2 to 4 weeks.
Why Is The Hydradermabrasion Better Than Microdermabrasion?
The Hydradermabrasion is also known as the “Serum-dermabrasion”. Microdermabrasion used to be considered the most effective method of exfoliation and mild skin rejuvenation. However, microdermabrasion is not recommended for all skin types. People with sensitive or thin skin, Rosacea or ethnic skin are not candidates for microdermabrasion because of potential reactions such as scaring, hyper-pigmentation and irritation. The Hydradermabrasion is a highly effective alternative to microdermabrasion, using the newest form of skin resurfacing technology, that Is non-invasive.
