Laser Hydrafacial in Fredericksburg, VA
While everyone wants to have radiant, clear skin, common issues like enlarged pores, sun damage, hyperpigmentation and fine lines often keep us from having the skin we want. When patients hear about skin resurfacing they may often think about procedures that leave skin raw, burned and red for weeks; however, HydraFacial® is a new way to resurface skin gently without post-procedural discomfort or recovery time.
How HydraFacial® Works
This non-invasive treatment follows a four-step process that ensures that each patient achieves optimal dermatological results painlessly and without the need for surgery:
Step 1: Cleansing and exfoliation
We use a specialized tool that opens up the pores and removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells to expose a healthy, more radiant layer of new skin.
Step 2: Acid peel
A glycolic and salicylic acid facial peel is applied to the skin. While most chemicals peels cause a stinging sensation, this part of the HydraFacial® process was designed to cause no more than a slight tingle.
Step 3: Extractions
When most patients come into the office to have acne removed, they are used to experiencing manual extractions performed by their dermatologist. However, during your HydraFacial® a suctioning tool is used to gently remove debris and other impurities from your pores.
Step 4: Hydration
This last step uses a serum (infused with antioxidants, peptides, and collagen) that increases hydration and skin firmness.
The biggest advantages that HydraFacial® offers is that you can get visible and instant results without experiencing any downtime or recovery, which is standard with other chemical peels and invasive cosmetic treatments. Furthermore, HydraFacial® can be customized to work with any skin type no matter what your concerns or skin sensitivities might be.
