Proper skin care is essential to maintain a healthy, glowing appearance. While cleansing and moisturizing your face is an important step in a good skincare regimen, it isn’t enough to keep your skin looking its best. Incorporate skincare treatment from the talented Dr. Catherine Vanderloos to maintain healthy skin that stays vibrant and youthful.
Are you looking for a noninvasive facial treatment that will help you look younger with no downtime? Hydrafacials will help restore your skin to improve its health, resulting in a beautiful and radiant look. They are beneficial for all types of skin and are non-irritating, allowing you to enjoy the results immediately in your everyday life.
What is a Hydrafacial?
A hydrafacial treatment is a three-step process that revitalizes tired, dull skin and leaves it feeling softer and smoother with a healthy, youthful glow. When used as a regular step in your monthly skincare regimen, hydrafacials leave skin with an improved texture and appearance. This treatment gently exfoliates skin to remove impurities and dead skin cells that could affect the health and appearance of your skin. It also hydrates and nourishes skin to keep it safe from stressful environmental factors.
HOW IT WORKS
A hydrafacial goes beyond basic skincare steps of cleansing and moisturizing. This treatment uses three distinct steps to revitalize and refresh skin, so it not only feels softer and smoother but also has a radiant, healthy glow. Hydrafacials enhance the look and feel of your skin in three distinct ways.
CLEANSE + PEEL
Uncover a new layer of skin with gentle exfoliation and relaxing resurfacing.
EXTRACT + HYDRATE
Remove debris from pores with painless suction. Nourish with intense moisturizers that quench skin.
FUSE + PROTECT
Saturate the skin’s surface with antioxidants and peptides to maximize your glow.
When exploring your medspa treatment options, the hydrafacial is a safe bet for anyone wanting better-looking skin. While the procedure results in overall healthier skin, it is also beneficial for a variety of specific issues such as:
- Enlarged pores
- Hyperpigmentation and sun damage
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Oily skin
- Whiteheads and blackheads
- Dry skin
- Uneven skin tone
This all-in-one facial treatment combines a variety of steps to refresh, soothe, and moisturize the skin. The results are firmer skin, improved skin texture, better elasticity, even skin tone, and a vibrant glow. Because there are no harsh ingredients or procedures used, you can go on with your day as normal immediately after your treatment.
WHAT DOES THE HYDRAFACIAL TREATMENT ENTAIL?
Does this skin treatment take hours of your time? Not at all. Depending on the specific needs of each individual client, a hydrafacial usually takes less than an hour. The procedure includes a unique way of exfoliating, which treats the skin without the redness and discomfort of certain skin resurfacing techniques such as chemical peels and dermaplaning.
Next, a variety of blemishes, such as blackheads, whiteheads, and sebum, are painlessly extracted and eliminated. Hydrated skin is extremely important, and the procedure delivers deep hydration that helps get rid of impurities as it softens the skin. Light therapy may be used to improve elasticity and encourage cell growth. Antioxidants are then infused into the skin, which helps diminish the appearance of fine lines and hyperpigmentation while delivering even more hydration to the skin.
Just one Hydrafacial treatment can result in radiant, younger-looking skin. To maintain healthy skin and fight signs of aging, monthly treatments are recommended for most clients.
What are the Characteristics of Healthy Skin?
The overall health of your skin is determined using three key factors. Even if your skin meets two of the criteria but lacks the third, it may not look and feel healthy, which is why a comprehensive skincare regimen that targets all three of these areas is so important.
The first key to healthy skin is hydration. A high-quality moisturizer is essential for infusing skin with the moisture it needs to stay soft and flexible. A hydrafacial is a great way to treat your skin to a monthly hydrating session that will keep skin from feeling tight and dry. Dru skin often peels or flakes, but hydrating it properly reduces dryness and keeps skin smooth and healthy.
The second characteristic of healthy skin is an even skin tone and texture. If you have sun spots or age spots on your face, you may need to boost the tone to revitalize its luster. Similarly, some texture is normal, but if you notice that your skin is unusually bumpy, it could probably use a boost of hydration to improve its elasticity.
The final criterion for healthy skin is the condition of your pores. If you don’t take the time to cleanse your skin thoroughly each day, your pores may get larger and more visible as they get clogged with various impurities. This results in blackheads and whiteheads that diminish the overall health of your skin. If you have no visible pores or obstructions on your skin, it will look younger and healthier.
What Does a Good Skincare Regimen Consist Of?
A good skincare regimen consists of much more than just cleansing and moisturizing your skin each day. Did you know that UV rays, which could cause your skin to age prematurely, are equally strong, whether the day is sunny or cloudy? 90% of skin damage happens as a result of sun damage, and skin produces less collagen each year after the age of 20, so it is vital to create a multi-step skincare routine that will protect your skin from sun damage while stimulating collagen production and nourishing skin.
The foundation of any good skincare routine should be protection from sun damage and a healthy lifestyle. Your lifestyle has a direct impact on the condition of your skin, so make sure you consume a healthy diet and drink plenty of water each day. You should also refrain from smoking and make sure you use sunscreen every day to ward off damage from harmful UV rays.
Cleansing and moisturizing your skin daily is the second step of a good skincare routine. Make it a habit to cleanse your face every morning and night and apply moisturizer as needed. You should also exfoliate your skin weekly with a scrub or mask to remove dead skin cells.
Getting monthly treatments such as hydrafacials is a great way to take your skincare routine to the next level. The professionals you see to perform these treatments can help you identify problem areas and customize a skincare regimen to meet your specific needs.
The final step in a good skincare routine is an annual trip to the dermatologist to make sure your skin stays in top shape. A licensed dermatologist such as Dr. Catherine Vanderloos can help you minimize signs of aging and maintain healthy, glowing skin.
