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 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.
