What Makes HydraFacialMD Different?
No masque or hand extraction or even a harsh microdermabrasion treatment can beat this quick, gentle way to clean out the “gunk” and get a glow, going with no irritation or redness.
Glycolic and salicylic acid is infused into the skin and a suction allows a vacuum to pick up all the junk you can’t get out by hand without causing potential issues such as scarring and irritation. But you will see the results post treatment– a container that has everything collected from your pores.
To find out more and experience HydraFacial MD, I visited theDermatology & Laser Group (200 West 57th St. Suite 510).
What is Vortex Fusion Technology?
First off, Vortex Fusion Technology sounds high tech which it is, but the Vortex-Fusion® serum delivery system offers the doctor or esthetician the opportunity to personalize the basic treatment (multi-steps of cleansing, exfoliating, and removing impurities and dead skin cells) by adding different serums via different tips. Depending upon the serums selected your skin can enjoy an infusion of nutrients including Antioxidants, Peptides and Hyaluronic Acid.
Get results you can instantly see.
What Is The HydraFacialMD Experience Like?
YHou start with the Basic Health treatment is good for all skin types, the treatments can help with elasticity & Firmness, Skin Tone Evenness & Vibrancy, Skin Texture, Brown Spots, Oily/Congested Skin, Enlarged Pores, Advanced Signs of Aging.Jessica Kim who did my treatment warned me that when pores are thoroughly cleansed, some people see temporary breakouts (I didn’t) but ironically, it’s also a very good treatment for people with acne prone skin because it can really deep clean and gets rid of the “gunk” in your pores that cause acne.
After filling out some paperwork, Jessica introduced me to the machine and thoroughly explained the treatment. She also et me feel the wand that dispenses the different serums via different tips on my face. To my surprise, it felt like suction with a sensation a little bit like a cat gently licking me with it’s tongue. Initially weird (but not unpleasant) I all but forgot all about it in a few minutes.
Jessica also did some massage along with using the wand, so the procedure was honestly, very relaxing. Had I not been reporting on this treatment so I had to stay awake, I would have fallen asleep.
Basic Health HydraFacialMD Treatment
The signature “Basic Health” treatment took about 45 minutes from beginning to end. As the esthetician moves the wand over your skin, there are four different serums/tips/steps featuring natural ingredients (see a video and read about the treatment and the ingredients):
Step 1: Vortex-Exfoliation™ Activ-4™ serum removes dead skin cells to uncover healthy skin.
Step 2: Vortex-Peel™ Glysal™ serum, a mixture of Glycolic and Salicylic Acids delivers the benefits of a peel without post-peel scaling.
Step 3″ Vortex-Extraction™ Patented, painless vortex-suction cleans out pores with the help of Beta-HD™ serum.
Step 4: Vortex-Fusion™ Antiox+™ serum is delivered to nourish and protect skin with Antioxidants, Peptides and Hyaluronic Acid.
…And There Are Add Ons:
In addition to the basic treatment, you can get different protocols with different, additional serums for Skin Health, Fine Lines & Wrinkles, Age Reversal, Brightening Treatment, or Oily/Congested, Sensitive Skin
Post Treatment Results:
I almost fell asleep during the treatment. Afterward, Jessica mentioned that my skin was really dry (yes, I know) and I should be using a serum. As a beauty reviewer, I get lots of products to review but don’t have the luxury of using all of them all the time. I need to pick one product and stick to it. At least at night-time, that’s a plan!
It depends upon where you are and who does the treatment, but the cost can range from around $100 to several hundred dollars, depending upon the ad-ons and whether your treatment is 30, 60 or 90 minutes. Like any other skin treatment, please choose a reputable place! You can research reputable places in your area by going to: Most dermatologists will offer packages. You might want to do a HydraFacial more often if your skin is acne prone, dry or mature or in the Winter when everyone’s skin feels the effects of environmental saboteurs. But the results of soft, hydrated, glowing skin without any down time..priceless!
