As we age, the skin on our face begins to show noticeable changes such as fine lines, deep folds, hyperpigmentation, and loss of elasticity. Your face goes through a lot over the years, and some of those pesky signs of aging can’t be helped. No one wants to go through life without animated facial expressions and laughter, so crow’s feet and smile lines are signs of a life well-lived. However, that doesn’t mean we have to live with them forever.
At Cosmetic Healthcare Group, Dr. Madnani offers a variety of nonsurgical treatments designed to not only repair the damage to your skin, but to keep it refreshed and beautiful. The latest innovation in nonsurgical skin rejuvenation is the HydraFacial MD®, a new level of treatment that can restore youthful vitality to your face.
What Causes Our Skin to Age?
The rate at which our skin ages and the way that it shows age can be determined by genetics, but it is also affected by factors like environment, your skin care regimen, nutrition, and – the biggest culprit of all – sun exposure. The sun can cause hyperpigmentation (dark spots), UV damage, and dehydration and after years of being outside, everyone suffers from some degree of sun damage.
As time marches on, the surface layer of the skin thins, our connective tissues weaken, sebaceous glands produce less moisturizing sebum, and the fat under the surface decreases. Suddenly, your cheeks look hollow, your skin sags, and your dry, thin skin is more prone to injury.
There are a variety of options to treat these issues. At one end of the spectrum are chemical peels, which can address minimally-damaged skin. At the other end of the spectrum is a surgical facelift; appropriate when you’ve exhausted all of your other options. Somewhere in between are the fillers, microdermabrasion, non-ablative laser treatments, and intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments. In clinical studies performed in the U.S., the HydraFacial MD® has shown that it produces better results than many of these other devices used for skin rejuvenation.
What to Expect from Your HydraFacial MD® Treatment
The HydraFacial MD® is a hydradermabrasion machine that employs a patented 4-in-1 Vortex Technology™. The four HydroPeel® tips used in the procedure feature a unique spiral design that creates a vortex effect. Used in conjunction with the HydraFacial MD® proprietary vacuum technology and serums, the HydroPeel® tips work to gently and easily loosen and remove impurities while simultaneously hydrating your skin with our solutions containing antioxidants, vitamins and peptides.
When you come in for your treatment, you will experience the four-step process to beautiful skin, beginning with the gentle exfoliation tip. The exfoliation tip and accompanying Active-4™ serum remove dead cells on the surface, leaving behind brighter skin. The second tip is the aggressive exfoliation tip that uses GlySal™ serum, a mixture that combines glycolic and salicylic acids to deliver all the benefits of a chemical peel without any dryness or flaking. The next step uses the extraction tip, which employs painless vortex suction to cleanse pores with the help of the Beta-HD™ serum. The last tip used is the Vortex-Fusion®. The targeted serums used during this step are to address specific concerns. The Antiox+™ serum contains hyaluronic acid, peptides, and antioxidants all combined into a formula designed to protect and nourish your skin. After your treatment, you can go home with the Daily Essentials™ products that contain the ingredients used during your treatment, in order to maintain your healthy glow.
The HydraFacial MD® is a dual-functioning and ergonomically designed device with a handpiece that enables control of the serum type and flow. This allows us to tailor each treatment to your needs, taking into account your skin type and whatever specific skin issues you might have.
