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

Are you missing out on conversations around you? Do you have to turn up the television to hear what is going on? If this sounds like you, it’s possible you are experiencing the early signs of hearing loss. Fortunately, the ENT specialists here at Ear, Nose and Throat & Facial Plastic Surgery Center can help. 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!

 

Science and beauty meet

That's what happens with an amazing HydraFacial from Ear, Nose and Throat & Facial Plastic Surgery Center. Learn more by coming in for a consultation at one of our three locations: Spotsvylvania Avenue or Fall Hill Avenue in Fredericksburg or Choptank Road in Stafford. Each office can be reached at (540) 371-1226.

Find out why so many people are turning to this facial to get more beautiful skin.

Do you wish you could have younger-looking and healthier skin? Are issues such as enlarged pores, sun damage or fine lines affecting your appearance? If so, our Fredericksburg, VA, ENT physicians and esthetician have a simple, safe, and non-invasive way to resurface the skin without the discomfort or recovery time.

According to Allure Magazine, a HydraFacial is performed every 15 seconds. That’s more than 2 million treatments a year! So, what is a HydraFacial and why are so many people turning to this non-invasive skin care treatment?

HydraFacial uses a handheld device that cleans, exfoliates and then infuses the skin with special serums to improve the health of your skin and to target common imperfections such as fine lines, enlarged pores and texture issues. Unlike dermabrasion, which blasts away the surface of the skin to reveal younger and more radiant skin underneath, HydraFacial offers an easier and softer approach to plump, moisturize, and achieve more radiant skin.

The steps involved in HydraFacial are as follows:

Cleansing and Exfoliation: We will open up the pores and remove any debris and dead cells from the outermost layer of the skin to brighten and improve the texture and appearance of your skin.

Acid Peel: Our Fredericksburg, VA, licensed esthetician will then apply a facial peel containing either glycolic or salicylic acid. A slight stinging sensation may occur.

Extractions: Unlike a manual extraction that a dermatologist may perform to remove blackheads and whiteheads, a special HydraFacial suctioning tool will be directed over the skin to remove any impurities and dirt from the pores.

Hydration: Now it’s time to infuse your skin with some amazing antioxidants and peptides to help it look moist, plump, and radiant. It can also improve skin firmness.

Another reason so many people are turning to HydraFacial is that it is able to address a variety of concerns, from acne-prone skin to wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. It’s ideal for patients of all ages and it’s safe for all complexions.

Ear, Nose & Throat & Facial Plastic Surgery Center has one office in Stafford, VA, and two offices in Fredericksburg, VA, to serve you better. If you are interested in learning more about HydraFacial and how it can improve your skin then call us today.
