The HydraFacial is a soothing, invigorating, non-irritating treatment for the skin that can be performed in as little as half an hour. The treatment is immediately effective, promotes long-term skin health, and can be individually tailored to meet each patient’s needs. At the practice of Dr. Hilton Becker, we serve Boca Raton and the surrounding area with hydrating, rejuvenating HydraFacial treatments.
What Does a HydraFacial Do?
The HydraFacial is a high-tech, multifunctional treatment that uses gentle technology, special applicators, and patented serums to achieve superior skin care results. The treatment process has several distinct steps, each with its own unique purpose.
Step 1: Vortex Cleaning and Hydrapeel Exfoliation
The first step of the HydraFacial treatment uses water-based exfoliation to remove dead skin cells. It also removes sebum (oily secretions), which can clog pores, block penetration of skin care products, and attract impurities.
Step 2: Pore Loosening
In the second step, the pores are infused with a mild mixture of salicylic and glycolic acids for deep pore cleansing. This treatment loosens pore plugs to help reduce inflammatory acne breakouts.
Step 3: Extraction
In this step, the vortex cleaning action of the HydraFacial applicator and suction are used to remove dirt, pore plugs, and other particles from the skin. This treatment deep cleans, reduces future breakouts, and boosts penetration of skin care product ingredients.
Step 4: Serum Fusion
The final step of the treatment involves infusing the skin with a combination of ingredients that includes antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid. Results are visible immediately and long-lasting. HydraFacial proprietary serums include:
- Dermabuilder Boost: A patented combination of peptides designed to minimize the signs of aging
- Growth Factor Boost: Specially designed to restore skin health and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Britenol Boost: A serum specially formulated to treat dark spots and sun damage
What Skin Issues Can the HydraFacial Treat?
This treatment is suitable for all skin types. HydraFacial can be used to treat a range of skin issues, including:
- Oily congested skin
- Firmness and elasticity
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Brown spots
- Skin tone and vibrancy
- Enlarged pores
How Many HydraFacial Treatments Will I Need?
Results are visible immediately after a HydraFacial treatment. Many patients experience refined skin texture and more even, radiant tone after only one treatment.
Hydration and smoothness resulting from a HydraFacial treatment can last up to 5 to 7 days. Once-a-month HydraFacial treatments are recommended to maintain skin health and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, brown spots, and oily congested skin.
Is There Any Downtime with a HydraFacial Treatment?
This is truly a “lunch hour” procedure designed for individuals with active lifestyles. Treatments can be performed in as little as 30 minutes and there is absolutely no downtime. After a HydraFacial treatment, you can apply makeup to your smooth, radiant, glowing skin and return to your normal activities immediately.
