What Is a Hydrafacial treatment?

If you have lines, large pores, brown spots, or other skin issues, you should think about correcting these problems with a HydraFacial treatment. At Preventous Cosmetic Medicine in Calgary, Alberta, we can use this gentle facial to brighten your skin, fade your wrinkles, minimize your pores, and correct many other aesthetic challenges.

What Is a HydraFacial Treatment?

HydraFacial is a cosmetic treatment that is used to improve the appearance of the skin on your face. As you age, your skin will become less hydrated. Our specialized facial will use sophisticated techniques to moisturize your skin. In addition to hydrating your skin, this facial can correct many other cosmetic issues.

Improving Your Acne

Your stress levels, diet, and hormones can cause you to develop blackheads, whiteheads, and other blemishes on your face. During your facial, we will improve your acne by removing bacteria and debris from your skin. In addition, we will use specialized techniques to unclog your pores.

We will also nourish your skin with specialized compounds and serums. As you continue to receive HydraFacials, your skin will become healthier and your breakouts will be less frequent and severe.

Fading Your Wrinkles

It’s common to develop lines and wrinkles during your twenties. In particular, you may develop visible lines on your forehead and creases around your eyes and mouth. Our facial will tighten your skin and reduce the visibility of your forehead lines and other wrinkles.

Improving Your Sun Damage

The sun sends out ultra-violet rays that will give you wrinkles, cause you to experience sunburns, and create dark spots on your face. Even if you use sunscreen when you are outside, you will probably develop visible sun damage as you get older. Fortunately, we can improve this problem by using specialized techniques to fade your dark spots, wrinkles, and other signs of sun damage.

Fixing Your Dull Skin

Having a large number of dead skin cells on the surface of your face will cause your skin to look dull and coarse. We can correct this issue by removing dead cells from your face and administering brightening serums onto your skin. After your treatment is complete, your skin will look radiant and youthful.

Improving Your Dark Spots

Spending a large amount of time in the sun can cause you to develop dark spots on your face. In addition, the negative effects of age and hormonal changes can cause you to experience this issue. We will improve your dark spots by exfoliating your skin during your facial. After our exfoliation technique removes your dead skin cells, your dark spots will be less noticeable.

Enhancing Your Skin’s Texture

When the texture of your skin is coarse and uneven, you will be more likely to suffer from breakouts and other skin issues. In addition, you will struggle to smoothly apply makeup onto your face. We will improve your skin’s texture by eliminating debris and dead skin cells from your face. In addition, we will use powerful serums to enhance the texture of your skin.

How Will This Facial Improve My Skin?

During your facial, we will perform three steps that will hydrate your skin and improve your aesthetic problems.

Step One

We will begin your facial by cleaning and peeling your skin. During this step, we will use botanical products to gently clean your skin. We will remove dirt from your face with our specialized HydraFacial device.

During the exfoliation part of your facial, we will use salicylic and glycolic acids to remove dead skin cells from your face. Since this technique is very mild, your skin will not burn or sting during this portion of your treatment. Removing the top layers of your skin will give you a radiant, bright complexion.

Step Two

Next, we will use special technology to remove extra debris from your skin. This innovative technique will use suctioning energy to eliminate blackheads and other unwanted materials from your pores. The suctioning energy that we send into your face will also improve your circulation and help your body remove unwanted fluids.

In addition, we will hydrate your skin by administering a customized serum onto your face. This specialized solution will brighten your skin and moisturize your facial tissues. Depending on your unique needs, this serum may contain peptides, antioxidants, collagen, and other nourishing ingredients. This serum can improve your wrinkles, firm your loose skin, and fix other aesthetic concerns.

Step Three

During the final step of your facial, we will apply peptides and antioxidants onto your face. These substances will protect your facial tissues from damage and give you fresh, glowing skin.

In addition to applying these materials onto your face, we can add customized serums during this part of your facial. We can give you more information about our range of serums during your initial consultation.

Will My Facial Be Uncomfortable?

Since this treatment uses powerful techniques to exfoliate your skin and clear your blackheads, you might feel a bit nervous before you receive your facial. Fortunately, this treatment is very refreshing and enjoyable. In fact, it’s common to look forward to these relaxing facial treatments.

Although you might feel a gentle tingling sensation while we extract debris from your pores, you will not feel pain or discomfort.

Am I a Good Candidate for This Facial?

You are likely to be a good candidate for this refreshing facial. Instead of using harsh methods to improve your tissues, we will use gentle techniques to refresh and soothe your skin. Since these methods will not irritate your facial tissues, you will be able to use this treatment if you have sensitive skin.

Getting a Consultation

Before we start your facial, we will carefully examine your skin. At this point, you will have a chance to tell us about the brown spots, wrinkles, and other issues that you would like to improve during your appointment. Based on this discussion, we will choose a customized set of serums and techniques to use during your treatment.

Protecting Your Skin

Although this facial is extremely gentle, you might not be able to receive this treatment if you have an infection or skin problem that affects your facial tissues. To avoid this problem, we will advise you not to receive a tan for at least one week before your appointment. In addition, this facial is not designed to improve severe wrinkles or very loose skin. If you are suffering from these issues, we can recommend other beauty treatments for you.

Will I Need To Follow Special Instructions After My Facial Is Complete?

This treatment is extremely gentle, and you won’t need to make changes to your usual schedule after you receive your facial. In fact, you should be able to put makeup on your face and return to your typical skincare routine as soon as you leave our office. There’s no need for you to avoid outdoor activities, take a break from your exercise plans, or make other adjustments to your schedule.

That said, your skin may be slightly flushed during the next 24 hours. This is a positive sign that indicates that your blood circulation is healthy. Although this reaction is not harmful, you should not schedule your facial right before a wedding or other important event. Instead, we will usually advise you to receive this treatment one or two days before a significant life event.

How Long Will My Improvements Last?

You will have radiant, well-hydrated skin after you receive one facial. The improvements in your skin’s tone and hydration are likely to last for at least five to seven days. We can teach you how to prolong these benefits. In particular, we can recommend high-quality beauty products and other aesthetic treatments that will help you maintain your smooth, healthy skin.

How Many Facials Should I Receive?

If you would like to see the most optimal changes in your brown spots, wrinkles, and other problems, we will usually advise you to get several facials. Although your treatment plan will be unique, we will typically advise you to receive up to ten facials. You should wait two to four weeks between each of your facials to give your skin time to shed old skin cells and adjust to your previous cosmetic treatment.

When Will My Skin Problems Improve?

You will have bright, healthy-looking skin after you receive one facial. That said, this technique will take time to improve your acne, dark spots, and other problems. In general, you will notice significant improvements in these problems after you have gotten several facials. After you receive your initial consultation, we can give you more information about the likely timeline of your improvements.

Can This Facial Improve My Acne?

If you suffer from acne, we will probably advise you to receive an AcneDefeat Hydracial. This innovative facial is specifically designed to treat your acne and give you clear, radiant skin. During this type of facial, we will provide you with a ZO Sulphur Mask and send blue LED light energy into your skin. We will also use specialized methods to extract debris from your skin.

These techniques will eliminate congestion and remove bacteria from your skin. After you receive this treatment, your acne and inflammation will improve. This special facial will usually take us about 75 minutes to complete. We will typically advise you to receive four to six facials. You should wait about four weeks between each of your acne treatments.

Can I Receive Injectable Treatments in Connection With My Facial?

It’s common to get Botox or dermal fillers in connection with this facial treatment. Although receiving multiple beauty treatments is an excellent way to enhance your look, you will need to follow some precautions in order to achieve the best results. In particular, you should receive Botox, dermal fillers, or other injectables after you get your facial.

If you have already received injectables, you should give your skin some time to recover before you receive additional beauty treatments. In general, we will advise you to wait for at least two weeks before you receive your facial.
