Top Concerns of HydraFacial Candidates By Daniel J Tepper on June 24, 2020

Individuals looking for a noninvasive, customizable skin treatment can benefit from hydradermabrasion at our Chicago, IL, practice. Also referred to as HydraFacial MD, this treatment cleanses, purifies, and exfoliates the skin, revealing a healthier, more youthful appearance. Our doctors at Wicker Park Eye Center offer luxurious skin treatments at Skeye MD, our on-site medical spa. In this article, we’ll explore the top concerns of HydraFacial candidates and discuss how the treatment can address these common issues.

#1: Fine Lines and Wrinkles

HydraFacial offers similar results to a chemical peel, in that it lifts and eliminates dead skin cells. However, instead of solely using acids to achieve these results, HydraFacial uses specialized “vortex technology,” which uses suction to remove dirt and toxins while simultaneously administering hydrating serums into the skin. As a result, the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles are reduced.

#2: Skin Elasticity

The hydration delivered by HydraFacial replenishes the skin, making it firmer and more supple. Additionally, we can choose a serum that will restore elasticity and promote natural collagen production.

#3: Texture

Over time, the elements can take a toll on the skin, giving it a ruddy or uneven texture. HydraFacial’s vortex technology lifts away impurities, then smooths the skin for a more even, glowing texture.

#4: Tone

Whether due to age or sun exposure, the skin can develop dark, splotchy patches. HydraFacial effectively stimulates blood flow and cleans out impurities. As a result, patients can achieve results similar to those of laser treatments without the downtime.

#5: Skin that is Too Oily or Too Dry

HydraFacial is a multi-step procedure that first clears out dirt and toxins before using hydrating serums to smooth and replenish the skin. Patients with oily skin have an increased risk of clogged pores and acne, while those with dry skin experience redness and itchiness. HydraFacial effectively treats both conditions, resulting in smoother, more comfortable skin.

#6: Sun Damage

There are several ways to reduce the appearance of sun-damaged skin. HydraFacial is a popular treatment because it can achieve the desired results in a noninvasive manner. In particular, the exfoliation and hydration phases help smooth the skin and reduce sun spots and wrinkles due to UV exposure.

#7: Large Pores

When dirt becomes trapped underneath the skin, the pores can appear enlarged. As a result, the skin looks uneven or mottled. HydraFacial helps remove dirt and toxins so the pores can return to a more normal size.

#8: Aging

The simple passing of time can cause the skin to appear wrinkled, uneven, and less supple. Depending on your personal aesthetic goals, HydraFacial can be an excellent solution to help you achieve healthier, beautiful, more youthful-looking skin.
