What is Hydrodermabrasion?

Hydrodermabrasion is the latest innovation in skincare technology, a crystal free method to the microdermabrasion process. Utilizing water jets, the outer layer of the skin will be broken up. This will reveal a smoother, more even texture of the skin. It is perfect for those that want to exfoliate the skin but have extremely sensitive skin. This procedure is gentle and very relaxing, with no discomfort felt. Skin will be slightly pink after treatment but will subside quickly thereafter.

Hydrodermabrasion is used on all skin types, and will help aging skin, skin that is congested, blemished skin, or dull and discolored skin. Oily skin can benefit to make it less greasy, and pores can be shrunk. Mild acne scars can be reduced, and fine lines can be decreased. Puffy eyes have also been treated using Hydrodermabrasion. There will also be an increase in circulation and lymph flow. Skin will see results immediately after the procedure. Skin will be soft and feel hydrated. The water that is used can be either distilled, saline or water that has been infused with minerals and vitamins.

Hydrodermabrasion uses a diamond tipped wand to gently exfoliate the skin. This tip will suction the skin in a gentle manner, which will remove the dead skin cells. Water will be delivered to the skin with the supersonic nozzle that is attached to the microdermabrasion machine. Then the wand will infuse the skin with a serum that was made to fully hydrate the skin.

This treatment is safe, chemical free, and has significantly less side-effects than the standard microdermabrasion.

Oxygen Infusion

An oxygen facial is a gentle revitalizing treatment that is suitable for damaged or irritated skin due to the regenerative and antiseptic effect of oxygen. It uses the air from the room, concentrate it through filters, mix the oxygenated air with the solution and creates a high force flow of low molecular liquid with oxygen.

The high pressure of oxygen penetrates the molecules of serum deep into the skin and oxygen molecules stimulate skin rejuvenation.

Benefits of Oxygen Infusion
  • Promotes collagen production

    The infusion of oxygen and vitamins into the skin encourages the production of collagen. This helps plump up facial features and restore volume and firmness to skin that has lost elasticity.

  • Helps detox the skin

    Everyday toxins like air pollution and cigarette smoke rob the skin of much-needed oxygen. An oxygen facial helps reverse the effects of environmental pollutants and rejuvenates oxygen-starved skin.

  • Speeds up cell turnover process

    Medical researchers suggest that the infusion of oxygen into skin may help skin create new cells at a faster pace. This increased cell regeneration helps speed up the healing of facial scars, acne and blemishes.

  • No side effects

    Unlike other more invasive anti-aging treatments like Botox or microdermabrasion, oxygen facials don’t cause any uncomfortable side effects like stinging, burning or redness. The process of delivering the oxygen and serum is quite gentle, which makes oxygen facials suitable for individuals with sensitive skin and for those who would rather avoid injections or chemical treatments. After an oxygen facial, you can resume normal activities immediately, even applying makeup and using normal facial products.

Hydrodermabrasion Before and After Care

Before having hydrodermabrasion done, consult your professional skin therapist. Those who have been treated with Accutane or isotretinoin for severe acne within the past 12 months will not be eligible for this procedure, nor will those with active skin infections, such as herpes or cold sores. Those who have a history of skin not healing properly are also not suitable for this treatment.

After hydrodermabrasion, you will want to baby the skin with sunscreen to protect it. Use at least an SPF of 30 and try to avoid the sun’s rays if possible. Further protect yourself by wearing a wide brimmed hat and sunglasses.
