Known as “Celebrity Facial”, AquaFacial is the ideal treatment to rejuvenate dry, tired, and dull skin, revealing a healthy, radiant skin that glows.
Known as a “Celebrity Facial”, AquaFacial is a no-downtime skin resurfacing procedure that combines exfoliation, vacuum extraction, hydration, and serum infusion into one fully customizable treatment for all skin types and conditions (see indications below). It is essentially a facial, peel, microdermabrasion, and hydrating mask all in one. This is the ideal treatment to rejuvenate dry, tired, and dull skin revealing a healthy, radiant skin that glows. Treatments typically take 45-60 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area and add-ons needed.
Fine lines | Dull tone, or “low glow” | Rough skin | Hyperpigmentation | Mild Sun damage | Dry or dehydrated skin | Blackheads | Acne | Clogged, congested & enlarged pores.
AquaFacial is a multi-step treatment as follow:
1. Prep & Detox
This step infuses a preparation serum containing lactic acid, glucosamine, and antioxidants while a gentle spiral vacuum suction increases lymphatic circulation and blood flow to flush away toxins.
2. Cleanse & Exfoliate
A vacuum-based hydro-tip of varying abrasion levels will gently smooth away dead skin cells.
3. Unclogging Pores
Now that pore-blocking old skin cells have been swept away, a gentle glycolic chemical peel solution (10 – 30%) is applied to break up pore congestion. This will brighten your skin and at the same time prep the pores for the next step.
A salicylic acid solution and the gentle spiral vacuum suction draw out blackheads and other impurities. This is an important step to ensure your pores are clean and able to benefit from the tightening effects of the treatment.
5. Serum Infusion
Now that your pores are clear and dead skin cells have been removed, your fresh new skin is ready to be treated. This step nourishes your skin and drenches it with condition-specific topicals, potent antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, and peptides.
Finally, red and infrared LED light is used to soothe skin, reduce redness, inflammation, and acne bacteria. LED light therapy also stimulates the skin’s natural ability to produce collagen and Vitamin D. You will be left with skin that feels soft, smooth, healthy, and invigorated.
All skin types
Most people see results immediately after the treatment and their skin may feel smooth and hydrated for one to four weeks with proper at-home-care to maintain treatment results. Every individual is unique and it is difficult to predict the results or a specific number of treatments needed to achieve desired results. The outcome of AquaFacial fades with time, so regularly scheduled treatments are highly recommended to achieve and maintain desired results.
The Aquafacial treatment is designed for all skin types including the most sensitive skin. Your practitioner may choose specific treatment serums and/or customize the treatment for your unique skin conditions and needs.
Is AquaFacial painful?
No, not at all. In fact, many of our clients fall asleep for it is a relaxing treatment. While this is the case for the most part, certain part of the procedure, such as blackhead extraction, may cause a little discomfort, but that isn’t a reason to shy away!
How often should I get a facial?
Ideally, you should aim to get a facial around every 4-6 weeks. That said, not everyone can commit to another frequent beauty treatment, so getting a facial four times a year—once for each season—is also a good practice.
Why is a AquaFacial 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?
The AquaFacial treatment takes as little as 45 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 treatment 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 Aqua Facial every 8 weeks.
Why is AquaFacial better than microdermabrasion?
The AquaFacial is also known as the “Serum-dermabrasion”. 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 AquaFacial is a highly effective alternative to microdermabrasion, using the newest form of skin resurfacing technology, that Is non-invasive.
