The HydraFacial is a revolutionary treatment that can cleanse, rejuvenate, and hydrate the skin, delivering results that will make you look younger and more vibrant than you thought possible. At Nowak Aesthetics in Chula Vista, CA, we offer this treatment as one of the best ways to achieve the skincare goals you’ve set for yourself.
Who Can Benefit From a HydraFacial?
Those Interested in a Professional Solution
You can get a run-of-the-mill facial from a dozen spas in San Diego, but this facial is different. Your skin’s health is ultimately a medical issue. You would not go to see a friend when you need dental care, and you wouldn’t get help from the person who does your nails when you get sick and need antibiotics. Many things can go wrong with the skin, and it takes a medical professional to diagnosis these issues and get you the results you need.
At Nowak Aesthetics, Dr. Eugene J. Nowak, DO, a board-certified dermatologist, leads a team of skincare medical professionals who know how to apply this facial in the right way to address your skincare needs. You can benefit from this facial if you’re a person who understands the importance of professional treatment.
Those Who Want a Fast Solution
If you’ve ever had a traditional facial, you know that it can be time-consuming, especially if you need to have extractions, and that you can have a red and irritated face for a few days afterward. This can be a problem if you need to go straight back to work or have a big event planned. Chemical peels can cause irritation for even longer.
One of the benefits of this amazing treatment is that it only takes about 30 minutes to perform, and you leave the office with amazing, dewy, glowing skin, ready to hit the red carpet.
Those Who Struggle With Acne
Acne is more than just a teenage problem, and if you’re suffering from it, you know how embarrassing and aggravating it can be. The HydraFacial is a safe, easy way to combat your acne, and it’s so gentle that even the most sensitive skin can benefit from it.
This facial first grabs all those dead skin cells that can mix with your natural skin oils to produce inflammation and blemishes. It whisks these away while also clearing out clogged pores, which prevents future breakouts. In the process, it gets rid of the p. acne bacteria that’s responsible for your problem and leaves you with a clear complexion and smaller pores.
Those Who Aren’t Happy With Skin Texture
This treatment is customizable, and you can choose serums and LED light treatments that can adapt the treatment to your specific skin needs and goals. If you’re having issues with the texture of your skin, for example, you will particularly like the Cleanse + Peel serum, which offers the benefits of a light chemical peel without all the irritation. Instead, glycolic and salicylic acids will gently exfoliate your skin and resurface it for a more even texture and natural glow.
Those Who Need Hydration
Our skin is subject to a lot of abuse. Even when we protect and nurture it, it’s out there in the real world, protecting us from the wind and sun. When we spend a night out partying, fail to eat well, or just don’t drink enough water, our skin suffers. You can pamper your skin and improve hydration with extractions and infusions of intense hydrating moisturizers. These will quench your skin and give you a smooth, supple feeling you haven’t enjoyed for a while.
Those Who Want to Glow
If your skin just doesn’t have the glow and glam you remember, the problem could be that it needs some nutrients. The HydraFacial will completely cover the surface of your skin with peptides and antioxidants. These will perk up the skin, giving it the same kind of vitality that your whole body enjoys when you infuse it with healthful nutrients from food.
Those Who Are Concerned About Delicate Areas
The skin around our eyes and lips is delicate and needs to be treated gently, yet these areas are also some of the first to show signs of aging. A lot of skincare treatments are a bit too harsh and so skip these crucial areas when they actually need more care than other parts of the face. This facial treatment is perfect for these delicate areas.
The wand that exfoliates and infuses can be adjusted to match the needs of any area of the face, meaning that you can easily treat the most delicate areas safely, removing dead skin cells and impurities while infusing the skin with the nutrients it needs.
Those Who Have Brown Spots
Hyperpigmentation, brown spots, sun spots: these go by a lot of names, but no matter what you call them, you probably want them gone. This facial can produce significant improvements, especially with repeated treatments over time.
Both the physical exfoliation and the applied serums will cause your skin to naturally rejuvenate, generating fresh, blemish-free skin in the place of spots. Serums containing collagen and Vitamin D are especially helpful, and infrared LED light treatment will accelerate the process. You’ll see a difference almost right away, but you’ll get the best results after a couple of treatments.
Those Who Have Oily, Congested Skin
Oily skin is such a conundrum. You want to clean it away, but the more you do, the faster it comes back. This treatment is recommended for all skin types, but it’s especially useful in treating oily skin.
As with hyperpigmentation, you’ll see the best results with repeated treatments. The facial cleans out your pore, removing excess oil and the bacteria and debris that cause your pores to produce more oil in the first place. By regularly cleaning this out, you allow your sebum production to calm down and achieve amazing results.
Those Who Want Firmer Skin
By exfoliating the skin and infusing it with antioxidants, collagen, and moisturizers, this treatment can actually promote more collagen production as your skin rejuvenates itself. Over time and with several treatments, you’ll see lax skin begin to firm even as fine lines and wrinkles are minimized.
Those Who Are Not a Candidate for Other Treatments
Sometimes, we’re not able to get the treatments we want. You may have been told that your skin tone puts you at risk for hypopigmentation if you seek a chemical peel or a laser treatment, for example. In contrast, this facial is suitable for everyone, no matter what the color or tone of their skin.
If you’re pregnant, you know that a whole host of treatments are off-limits because their effects on the fetus haven’t been studied. This facial, at its most basic, is perfectly safe. While there are some serums its best to avoid, for the most part, this is a wonderful skin treatment even expectant mothers can safely enjoy.
How the HydraFacial Works
This facial has three steps, and you can customize many things within these steps. When you come to meet us for a consultation, we’ll help you understand your options and choose the right serums, boosters, and treatment regimen to get the best results for your skin.
Step One: Cleansing and Peeling
This first step resurfaces and exfoliates your skin. The dead skin cells on top, along with the debris that typically sits on top of our skin, are all removed. This allows us to reach the pores beneath and clear away everything that clogs them. This step also increases collagen production, which can produce major changes over time.
To accomplish this step, we’ll use a special tip that is applied all over your face, varying the intensity to match the thickness of the skin in each area of the face. This wand creates a vortex of fluid that goes over the skin, both dislodging impurities and pulling them away at the same time. The best news is that it’s perfectly comfortable.
Step Two: Extract and Hydrate
If you’ve ever had extractions done during a typical facial, you know they can be very painful and leave you with a red, irritated face for hours (or even days) after. You won’t feel any pain like that when you have this facial done. The tip creates a negative pressure that gently but effectively pulls all that gunk out. At the same moment, it’s replacing that gunk with soothing moisturizers, so you get calming and a smooth face instead of irritation and redness.
Step Three: Fuse and Protect
The final step of treatment is applying one of the many specialized boosters or serums that can help you achieve your greatest skin goals. There are as many choices among these serums and boosters as there are special skin needs. You can find solutions for:
- Smoothing and refining
- Firming and restoring
- Treating the area around the lips
- Extra hydration needs
Does It Really Work?
When you first hear about this facial, your initial reaction could be to think it’s too good to be true. That’s understandable, but in this case, it’s not applicable. Studies have been done proving the effectiveness of this skincare treatment. One of the world’s leading plastic surgeons, Bruce M. Freedman, conducted a clinical study that showed better skin rejuvenation results through hydradermabrasion than with IPL treatments or other rejuvenating treatment options.
The study showed that a series of treatments caused the growth of new collagen and a thickening of the epidermis, while also reversing photo-damage and protecting the lipid membranes of the skin. Digital photos and skin biopsies taken during the study showed that patient antioxidant levels went up even as their skin objectively improved in texture, with visibly smaller pores, reduced fine lines, and less hyperpigmentation.
Am I a Candidate?
It’s natural to ask this question since many treatments have limited candidacy. There is almost nothing that could keep you from having a HydraFacial, however. It is suitable for every type and color of skin. It is as good for you at 26 as at 66, and it works on dry skin, oily skin, aging skin, and even extremely sensitive skin.
Whoever you are, you’ll get the best results when your treatment is customized to match your skin needs and when treatment is administered by dermatological professionals who know how to get you the results you’re looking for.
Change Your Skin
If you’re not pleased with the state of your skin and want to see it soft, dewy, clear, and refreshed, then consider the HydraFacial. This revolutionary facial offers all the benefits of a traditional facial, and more, with no downtime, irritation, or pain. In fact, it’s a fast, comfortable treatment that allows you to walk out the door looking like a younger, more vibrant version of yourself.
