How Does HydraFacial MD Work?

The Proprietary Answer: VORTEX-FUSION

The patented Vortex-Fusion serum delivery system is what really sets the HydraFacial MD apart from all other acne treatment procedures.  The multi-step treatment cleanses, evenly exfoliates and extracts to remove impurities and dead skin cells while at the same time infusing powerful nutrients including Antioxidants, Peptides, and Hyaluronic Acid.  Thanks to the devices’ superior delivery system, these vital ingredients are able to more effectively clean and clear the skin for the results you can see and feel instantly. The overall effect is a radiant glow that lasts for days. Not only does it help to clear the skin, it also helps removes the dark spots that can get left behind as well!

We offer 2 Treatment Options:

HydraFacial Deluxe(50 minutes of Deep Transformation)

Most Highly Recommended!

HydraFacial Express( 30 minutes to Glow)

The HydraFacial Deluxe is performed as follows:

First, your skin will be evaluated and you will discuss your needs with the your highly trained specialist.  Then, your face, neck and upper chest will be gently cleansed manually to remove excess oil, dirt and makeup.  The second cleanse will include the Clarisonic scrubber to help loosen dirt and impurities prior to the actual HydraFacial treatment itself.

Now that you have been prepped, the real fun begins.

HydraFacial Deluxe Step 1- Vortex Exfoliation- The patented HydraFacial MD technology simultaneously infuses Activ-4™ serum deep into the epidermis while vacuuming the debris completely away. This thoroughly removes the dead skin cells and uncovers healthy fresh skin underneath. This step requires two passes over the entire face, neck and decolletage.

Active Ingredients Activ-4 Deep Cleansing Serum are: Lactic Acid-to loosen dead skin cells and unclog pores, Algae Extract- to calm and soothe acneic skin with added hydration, and Yeast Extract which firms and smoothes the appearance of fine lines.

HydraFacial Deluxe Step 2- Vortex Peel- Medical grade Glysal™ serum, a mixture of Glycolic and Salicylic Acids delivers the benefits of a peel without post-peel scaling. Sebum is softened and impurities are vacuumed away.

HydraFacial Deluxe Step 3- Vortex Extraction- Patented, painless vortex-suction deeply cleans out pores with the help of Beta-HD™ serum, leaving skin clean and fresh and unclogged. No pinching and prodding, just slow intense vacuum extraction.

HydraFacial Deluxe Step 4- The ZO Skin Health Detoxifying Sulfur Acne Clarifying mask is massaged gently into the skin, and left to treat and revitalize.  Your specialist will make you feel like a million bucks, and you will fall in love with the medical grade products developed by world renowned dermatologist Dr. Zein Obagi.

HydraFacial Deluxe Step 5- Once the mask is gently removed, the specialty serums that are only available in the Deluxe version will be vortex infused deep into the skin of the face. We use TWO medical grade HydraFacial patented serums for this step:

CTGF Vortex-Booster™- Growth factor Serum- Developed to address the advanced signs of aging, this HydraFacial MD® treatment utilizes the CTGF Vortex-Booster™ to deliver one of the highest levels of naturally occurring growth factors. Growth factors play a key role in maintaining healthy skin and in this formula they work hard to reduce the appearance for fine lines and wrinkles, dramatically improve skin tone and texture and help bring skin back to a more youthful state of resilience. Growth Factors are naturally occurring proteins that help reduce the signs of aging by stimulating greater production of new collagen.

Micro-Current

Now that your face, neck and upper chest have been deeply cleansed, exfoliated, vacuum extracted, treated, and bathed in a lavish array of medical grade serums, we apply the specialized micro-current technology.  This incredible device simultaneously tightens the muscles of the face while driving the serms deeper than otherwise would be possible.  This helps insure that get the absolute deepest penetration possible. It feels really amazing too.  It’s always nice FEEL that something is really working.

Acupuncture for Acne

Acupuncture treats acne by stabilizing the hormones that cause it. Your acupuncturist will assess the severity and causation of your specific type of acne, and tailor a series of treatments. No two treatments are alike as various combinations of factors such as hormones, stress, lifestyle and genetics cause acne. Traditional Chinese Medicine considers physical, emotional and environmental factors of the individual when treating skin problems. From this perspective, acne is most often associated with heat and dampness affecting internal organs and channels. The three organs responsible for acne are the spleen, stomach and lungs. Each organ has to perform a specific task and is connected to the channel that flows from the internal surface of the skin and connects with a specific organ.  When one of these organs has a dysfunction, the end result can be the formation of acne.  Therefore, the acne can be successfully treated by solving the cause of the problem. Most candidates with mild to moderate acne will require a minimum of 5 sessions, and those with the most severe acne will need 10 or more sessions in combination with Chinese herbs and possibly laser treatments to stop the production of scar tissue on the face. The best part of about receiving acupuncture for acne is that there are absolutely no side effects. The acupuncture treats the whole constitution of the body, so your entire body will perform better.

Infrared Detox For Clear and Beautiful Skin

We all know that the powerful energy of Infrared technology has proven to penetrate deeply into muscles and joints  to help relieve pain.  But, did you know that this same energy can do wonders for the skin as well.  The infrared heat energy goes deep into the dermis to stimulate collagen production and  simultaneously kills bacteria.  This process is very deeply detoxifying, and leaves the skin fresh and glowing.  This is the perfect “Quick Fix”right before an event.  It’s very relaxing as well. It can also be done as an add on to other treatments.  When the 20 minute facial treatment ends, the skin is left feeling visibly younger, with a radiant lifted look. Due to the depth of penetration, this is especially helpful for those who have suffered with cystic acne, those deep bumps that hurt.  Give it a try, RELIEF is only one treatment away!

IPL for ACNE

IPL-Intense Pulsed Light therapy, is a great way to treat Acne.  For those who are not looking for a deep cleanse, but are interested in clearing the skin while reducing dark spots from previous breakouts.  IPL will help to remove the outer layer of skin that clogs the pores.  It will kill bacteria, both on the surface and under.  But, the best reason to choose this option is that IPL REALLY helps remove those pesky dark spots that acne can leave behind.  In addition, IPL is fantastic at removing red and brown spots from the sun and environment. Even just one treatment will lighten and brighten your complexion, leaving smoother, clearer, brighter skin that you have will have you feeling so much more confident.
