Learn more about this popular cosmetic skincare treatment.

If you’re looking to give your skin a rejuvenating boost for the new year, then you’ve come to the right place. Our Fredericksburg and Stafford, VA, ENT physicians at Ear, Nose & Throat & Facial Plastic Surgery Center of Fredericksburg offer HydraFacial with laser therapy. By combining these popular cosmetic treatments we can target a wider array of skin issues while offering more dramatic results.

What is a HydraFacial?

This popular skin resurfacing treatment is used to exfoliate the skin while also delivering antioxidants and deep hydration to the skin through a variety of special serums. This type of facial is sometimes referred to as a hydradermabrasion. A HydraFacial involves four different steps: cleansing and exfoliating, a mild chemical peel, suction extraction and deep hydration.

What makes laser HydraFacials different?

The lasers used in a laser HydraFacial here in our Fredericksburg, VA, practice are non-ablative, meaning that it is non-invasive and less aggressive than an ablative laser, which means that there is no downtime. Combining lasers with HydraFacial means that our team can treat a wider range of skin imperfections including,

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Visible veins
  • Discolorations and dark spots
  • Sun damage
  • Rosacea
  • Superficial scarring
  • Enlarged pores

Combining cosmetic laser therapy with a HydraFacial provides incredible and dramatic results that you’ll see right away; however, these treatments do need to be spaced apart. Talk with our team about how long you should wait between treatments. Some patients choose to get a HydraFacial one month and then laser treatment the following month. After getting laser HydraFacial you will notice,

  • Tighter pores
  • Cleaner more rejuvenated skin
  • Glowing complexion
  • Incredibly soft skin

Is a laser HydraFacial right for me?

If you are looking for dramatic results to improve the overall complexion and appearance of your skin while also targeting anti-aging and other imperfections, then a laser HydraFacial could be right for you. If you are looking for a non-invasive treatment with no downtime, this treatment could be ideal.

A new year deserves a new you that you can feel confident in. If you’re interested in our laser HydraFacial, we have two practices in Fredericksburg and one in Stafford, VA, to meet your cosmetic needs.

Are you looking for radiant, smooth skin with fewer lines and age spots? At the Ear, Nose & Throat & Facial Plastic Surgery Center in Fredericksburg, and Stafford, VA, Our experienced team offers a wide range of services, including the popular and effective Hydrafacial. Appropriate for all ages and skin types, this simple, soothing treatment will rejuvenate your face.

What is a Hydrafacial?

Available in many types to suit your individual skincare needs, Hydrafacial is an in-office aesthetic treatment that targets the fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and clogged pores typical of aging skin. In fact, our patients enjoy Hydrafacial treatments, touting their comfort, exfoliation of dead skin cells, and outstanding hydration.

Taking just half an hour at the Ear, Nose & Throat & Facial Plastic Surgery Center in Fredericksburg, and Stafford, VA, your Hydrafacial is a medical-grade skin resurfacing service which opens pores, removes excess oil and skin cells, and produces skin brightening effects immediately. After a gentle, but thorough, cleaning, we use a special instrument equipped with a suction tip to clear your pores of extraneous materials, such as make-up. The procedure targets areas like your chin crease and the folds alongside your nose where debris and oil easily collect.

Then, we add moisturizing lotions to your entire face to plump creases and lines. Finally, we increase the natural elasticity of your skin with collagen-boosting serums. Everyday Health reports that these serums also lighten areas of hyperpigmentation related to sun exposure and the aging process.

Who can get a Hydrafacial?     

Most adults in good health make excellent candidates for this wonderful process. Pregnant women should wait until they deliver their babies before they get a Hydrafacial, and those individuals with a sunburn or rash, such as rosacea or eczema, must postpone this service until the problem has cleared. Our team will answer any questions you may have, and they will help you determine how many facials you need and at what intervals. Most people get a once-monthly Hydrafacial to maintain their clear, radiant skin.

Sun damage, aging, and other factors can leave us with skin that is not as radiant as we would like. One method for rejuvenating the skin on your face is skin resurfacing. Several skin resurfacing options exist, but some are harsh and can leave skin red, raw, or burned for a few weeks following treatment. Laser HydraFacial is a non-invasive method for gently rejuvenating skin without the unwanted side effects. At Ear, Nose and Throat & Facial Plastic Surgery Center in Fredericksburg, VA, we offer Laser HydraFacial treatments for facial rejuvenation.

Laser HydraFacial

Laser HydraFacial is a facial rejuvenation option for resurfacing skin and addressing various issues, such as hyperpigmentation, sun damage, fine lines, and enlarged pores. Laser HydraFacial can leave your skin looking clear, radiant, and completely rejuvenated. The skin resurfacing procedure is performed in a gentle and non-invasive manner that does not irritate the skin so there is little to no recovery time. Additionally, results are visible immediately after treatment so you can enjoy a glowing complexion instantly.

At our center in Fredericksburg, Laser HydraFacials are performed in several steps, beginning with cleansing and exfoliation and concluding with hydration. The four steps to facial rejuvenation with Laser HydraFacial include:

Step 1: Cleansing and Exfoliation

A specialized tool is used to open up pores and exfoliate the outer layer of skin, which removes dead skin cells. Once these old skin cells are out of the way, a fresh new layer of healthy, radiant skin will be revealed.

Step 2: Acid Peel

A gentle chemical peel of both glycolic and salicylic acids is applied to the skin, which helps resurface it. This peel only produces a slight tingle and is much gentler than other types of chemical peels that are associated with a strong stinging sensation.

Step 3: Extractions

A suctioning tool is used to clean out the pores by gently removing debris and other impurities that can clog pores and cause acne.

Step 4: Hydration

A serum infused with a blend of collagen, antioxidants, and peptides is applied to the skin, leaving it firmer and more hydrated.

If you are ready to rejuvenate your facial skin the gentle and non-invasive way, you will love Laser HydraFacial. At our office in Fredericksburg, VA, we can help you decide if HydraFacial is the right option for you. To schedule an appointment at any of our office locations in Fredericksburg, Stafford, or Spotsylvania, call the Ear, Nose and Throat & Facial Plastic Surgery Center at (540) 371-1226.

How your ENT specialists in Fredericksburg, VA, can help you hear better

We have several convenient office locations in Fredericksburg and Stafford, VA, where we offer a wide range of ENT services including hearing tests and hearing aids to help you hear better and enjoy your life more.

So how do you know if you might have hearing loss? There are some early signs and symptoms to pay attention to, including:

  • Difficulty picking out speech from background noise
  • Hearing only muffled speech and sounds
  • Needing people to speak more loudly or slowly
  • Difficulty distinguishing consonants within words
  • Avoiding social situations and conversations because of hearing problems

If you are experiencing any of the signs or symptoms listed above, you should schedule a hearing screening. It’s the first step in diagnosing hearing loss. You should have a hearing screening every 10 years until you reach age 50, and every 3 years after that.

A hearing screening helps your doctor determine your degree of hearing loss. If you are having hearing difficulties, your doctor can suggest several discreet and effective hearing aids to help you hear better.

Would you like healthy, glowing facial skin? Here at Ear, Nose and Throat & Facial Plastic Surgery Center in Fredericksburg and Stafford, SkinVA, we offer the perfect blend of medical technology and a fabulous aesthetic treatment—it's called a HydraFacial. A fast and comfortable service, read on to learn how this treatment beautifully rejuvenates skin and leaves you feeling great!

 

The details on HydraFacial

As we age, both time and environment factors take their toll on our skin. Deep pores, sagging skin, wrinkles, fine lines, dullness, and spots all change how we look and feel about ourselves.

Fortunately, here at our offices in Fredericksburg and Stafford, VA, our wonderful aesthetician, Summer Byrne, performs patented HydraFacials right in our treatment rooms. This comfortable, one-hour process detoxifies, rejuvenates, and protects facial skin without the time, cost, and complexities of other aesthetic procedures.

 

Here's how HydraFacial works

As you relax in our treatment chair, your aesthetician will cleanse your face and apply a mild solution to exfoliate your face. When this is complete, she uses a special extractor to remove the dirt, oils, skin cells, make-up, and any other residues from your forehead, cheeks, chin, and more.

Finally, she applies a deeply moisturizing solution to seal and protect your face, leaving it smoother, brighter, and tighter than before. You'll look and feel so much younger, and people will notice!

After your HydraFacial, you may see a slight redness on the treated areas. However, this resolves rapidly, leaving you to enjoy long-lasting results. Your aesthetician may recommend follow-up treatments as needed.

Allure reports that HydraFacials are extremely popular across the United States. In fact, one HydraFacial is performed every 15 seconds!
