What is the Hydrafacial MD?
The Hydrafacial is a machine led super facial which uses a mixture of highly effective quality products and mechanical technology. It is designed to provide your skin with everything science has told us it needs to regenerate healthily and maintain a radiant glow.
How does a Hydrafacial treatment work?
A Hydrafacial works by acting like a reset button for the renewal cycle of your skin. It consists of three main treatment phases. Importantly, the treatment sequence addressed the needs of this renewal cycle in the correct order.
What does a Hydrafacial consist of?
A Hydrafacial involves 6 steps grouped into 3 treatment phases:
|Phase 1||Cleanse||Your skin is exfoliated and gently resurfaced with a new, healthy, and even layer of skin brought to the surface.|
|Phase 2||Extract||Impurities clogging your skin and pores are chemically and mechanically removed. Your skin is then hydrated with powerful moisturizers.|
|Phase 3||Fuse||Your skin is infused with protective antioxidants and peptides to ensure continued protection, which allows your skin to regenerate more healthily for weeks to come|
What is the Hydrafacial MD for?
At Amara, we use the Hydrafacial treatment to address multiple common and uncommon skin concerns. It’s an effective first step treatment for addressing –
By effectively resetting your skins renewal cycle, it gives your skin a fresh start. This allows you to take preventative steps to avoid the problems that might have brought you to us in the first place.
|Dry skin||Oily skin|
|Uneven skin||Very fine lines and wrinkles|
|Sun damaged skin||Sensitive skin|
|Clogged skin||Large pores|
|Acne susceptible skin||Skin maintenance|
What does a Hydrafacial feel like?
A Hydrafacial feels like it works! Your skin will never feel better.
The cleanser and serums leave your skin feeling clean and soft before the mixture of glycolic and salicylic acids clear your skin of debris and excess oil. Here your skin will tingle a bit as you get all the benefits of a peel minus the post peel scaling.
The power vacuum based extraction compliments the peel and you can feel your pores being cleared of debris and congestion. There is a slight tug on your skin as the vacuum nozzle works over your skin. Powerful moisturizers, antioxidants, and peptides added in the final stages leave your skin glowing and feeling soft, gentle and even.
What else can a Hydrafacial do?
There are two additional upgrades available with a Hydrafacial treatment. These can be discussed with your Skin Health Specialist at you pre-treatment consultation.
LED Light Treatment
|This massage based add-on stimulates your lymphatic system into action, clearing lymph vessels which act like a drainage system for your skin. With these vessels clear, your skin’s ability to undertake the natural processes of good skin health are restored.||Blue LED lights directly inhibit bacteria which may cause acne spread or outbreaks in sensitive skin or skin with rosacea.|
Red LED lights stimulate your skin’s collagen helping promote strong, healthy, and voluminous skin.
How long does a Hydrafacial take?
The Hydrafacial MD is fully customizable to your skin and schedule. Depending on what your skin needs, Hydrafacials can take as little as 30 mins. Upgrades and add ons can see some Hydrafacials take 90 mins. The standard time for most clients would be 60 mins.
Note – All first time clients will be allocated 90 mins for their first hydrafacial consultation and treatment. This is because it includes a complimentary skin consultation with a skin health specialist. This allows them to deliver you the best treatment possible.
