The Amazing Benefits of a HydraFacial

Have you been looking for a safe and easy way to revitalize your skin and minimize wrinkles with medical-strength technology that’s still gentle? The truth is, many people are looking for one treatment that can help minimize a number of issues, such as scarring, breakouts, sun damage, large pores, and wrinkles. Look no further because a HydraFacial® can do all of these things for your skin. 

Dr. Lakshmi Palakurthi, and the rest of our team at her practice, want to offer you this amazing treatment and help you prepare for your HydraFacial beforehand, so you can get the best results possible. Here’s what you need to know about this revolutionary procedure.

What a HydraFacial is and how it works

A HydraFacial is also known as hydrodermabrasion, as it’s similar to the process of dermabrasion or microdermabrasion, but more gentle. A HydraFacial starts with the cleaning and exfoliation stage, where the skin is brought to its most pristine state.

Next, suction is used to remove impurities and ensure that the pores are open and ready to absorb nutrients. At the same time, the skin is nourished with moisturizers. Beneficial ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid, peptides, and antioxidants, are applied to the skin in the final stage.

The benefits of a HydraFacial

Why get a HydraFacial, you might ask, when other treatments like microdermabrasion exist? Part of the reason Dr. Palakurthi recommends this treatment is because of its many benefits. HydraFacials can help to refine and minimize a number of issues, including

In addition, hydrodermabrasion is also a much gentler approach than dermabrasion or microdermabrasion, which use grit to remove dead skin. This approach vacuums out the unwanted impurities in the skin and improves the look and feel of it by adding soothing, beneficial ingredients.

The results of your HydraFacial

Depending on your needs you may want to include different types of boosters and ingredients to your HydraFacial. Dr. Palakurthi recommends the use of oxygen treatment if you are hoping to detox the skin and promote collagen production. However, the basic HydraFacial treatment can be utilized to simply create smoother, more youthful-looking skin, a benefit that lasts 1-3 weeks after only one HydraFacial procedure.

For those who want to see long-term solutions to problems like wrinkles, scarring, and sun damage, we recommend about 6 treatments spaced every 7-10 days for the best results. Afterward, Dr. Palakurthi usually recommends that you receive follow-up treatments once a month.
