When you come in for a HydraFacial, it’s three simple yet effective steps in less than an hour. When you’re done, you’ll have the best looking skin you’ve ever had – vibrant and glowing!
HydraFacials at Garza Plastic Surgery are performed by one of our aestheticians using the HydraFacial machine. They’ll gently prep your face and neck for the treatment and help you relax. Then, using the specially designed HydraFacial handheld device, they will begin step one of your treatment.
1. CLEANSE & PEEL
Your skin constantly cycles through new and old skin cells, with the oldest cells lingering on the surface of your skin. Naturally, these cells will slough off, but these cells can also make your natural complexion look blurred or dull.
HydraFacial pens also use a specially designed tip that gently peels and suctions away the dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. This special HydraPeel tip was designed specifically by HydraFacial to create a vortex that gently exfoliates the surface of your skin with their proprietary formula of hydrating solutions and the specially designed vacuum in the HydraFacial machine.
The great thing about HydraFacial is while your dead skin is lifted away, the special hydrating serums are nourishing and refreshing the new skin underneath! The whole process is non-invasive and gentle on your face. Patients often compare the sensation to microdermabrasion, but gentler due to the hydration.
2. EXTRACT & HYDRATE
The next step focuses the HydraFacial’s suctioning power on extracting dirt, oil, and other debris from deep inside your pores while applying a deeply hydrating formula. Before this phase, your aesthetician will ask you about your recent skin care routine and treatments to avoid applying any irritants to your skin. If you prefer to skip the extraction phase, we can skip right to the hydration phase.
However, extractions will help clear congested pores and allow the hydration serums to penetrate the deeper layers of the skin. Your aesthetician will also use a different tip on the handheld device that will specifically target oil and dirt removal.
Finally, your Belle Meade/Nashville aesthetics provider will help you select a serum with your preferred solution of salicylic acid to beautify your skin.
3. FUSE & PROTECT
Finally, after removing all of your skin’s impurities, applying cleansers, and revealing a beautiful layer of new skin, we go back over the treatment area to hydrate, infuse, and protect. First, to prevent dehydration from the cleansers, your aesthetician will apply antioxidants to start putting back your skin’s natural moisture.
Next, a hyaluronic acid serum will be applied via the handheld device. Once your face and neck are covered with the hyaluronic solution, your aesthetician will treat your skin with red LED lights. If you’ve never seen this at work, you might think it sounds hokey, but the red light actually reduces redness caused by tactile stimulation.
On top of this, the red lights will actually help the HydraFacial hydrating solution and the hyaluronic acid (HA) permeate into the deeper layers of your skin. Red light also reduces signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles. Then, with the HA’s natural hydrophilic properties, moisture will be pulled into your skin, leaving it hydrated, fresh and dewy.
Additional HydraFacial Treatment Options
Described above is the basic HydraFacial procedure, but the secret to why it’s so popular is the treatments customizable options. Talk with your skincare specialist/aesthetician about your goals, your skin, and your health history. They’ll then choose the appropriate applicator tip, cleanser solution, hydrating serum, and light treatment for your skin.
At Garza Plastic Surgery we offer both red and blue LED light therapy treatments with HydraFacials. Our blue light therapy service reduces acne and the severity of acne. So, if you have a serious breakout, or just want to treat your teen to a luxurious facial, ask about HydraFacial!
Want to give a certain area of your face some extra love and attention? Try an add-on Perk lip or eye treatments. They take about 5 minutes to complete, so if you don’t have time for a full HydraFacial, you can even come in for just a quick Perk treatment!
IS HYDRAFACIAL WORTH IT?
If you’re looking for a treatment that exfoliates, hydrates, and refreshes your skin all at the same time, then this is the treatment for you!
HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU GET A HYDRAFACIAL?
We recommend scheduling a treatment every four to six weeks, if you’re committed to maintaining your results. HydraFacials make for a great one-off treatment too!
IS A HYDRAFACIAL BETTER THAN A REGULAR FACIAL?
A regular facial focuses on just hydrating your skin, with a bit of exfoliation depending on the products used. In comparison, HydraFacial provides deep pore cleansing, deep hydration, and skin protection. Better yet, every treatment is customizable so it even works on the most sensitive skin types.
HOW SOON WILL I SEE RESULTS?
You will notice results immediately after your treatment. Your skin will be smooth, bright, and refreshed. To keep your results for the maximum amount of time between treatments, your aesthetician will recommend some of our favorite skin care products from our selection at our office.
WILL THERE BE ANY DOWNTIME?
Usually, after aesthetic treatments like dermaplaning, dermarolling, microneedling, microdermabrasion, or chemical peels your face will be more sensitive. However, HydraFacial is designed to be gentle enough on your skin so there’s no downtime. The third phase of the treatment even helps protect your skin!
DOES A HYDRAFACIAL REMOVE DARK SPOTS?
Hyperpigmentation or uneven dark spots can be troublesome. Consistent HydraFacial Belle Meade treatments along with a good skincare routine can actively reduce dark spots on your face. For even more deep skin rejuvenation, try an Obagi Blue Peel in Belle Meade.
