Learn the difference between Microdermabrasion and a Hydrafacial.

Microdermabrasion is a special procedure that uses tiny crystals to exfoliate the skin, and remove dead skin cells. The purpose of microdermabrasion is to smooth and brighten the skin, minimize the appearance of pores, and help absorb moisture better.

There are many benefits of Microdermabrasion. It can help remove top-level sun-damaged skin and help bring a youthful glow.  Other benefits include scar minimizing, dark spot and skin discoloration reduction, and improved blood flow, which can increase collagen production.

There are numerous types of microdermabrasion systems available.  Some use tiny fire crystals that are passed through the wand and sprayed on the skin. Another type involves the use of the diamond-tipped wand. These tips are made in varying textures, similar to that of fine grain sand paper, and are matched to an individual clients’ skin type and thickness.  Both of these systems accomplish the same goal. But how do they work?

As the wand exfoliates the skin tissue, a small vacuum within it, removes the dead skin cells, leaving the skin smooth and soft.  Though it is a non-invasive procedure, occasionally some individuals may experience minor skin irritation, dryness and tightness, with slight redness, following the treatment. Microdermabrasion

Hydradermabrasion (provided through a Hydrafacial) is the new and improved microdermabrasion. Hydradermabrasion uses the natural healing powers of oxygen,, water and skin-benefitting vitamins like Hyaluronic Acid and peptides.  Hydradermabrasion exfoliates the skin with out the use of harsh and abrasive crystals or textured tips. 

The Hyrdrafacial uses a variety of steps to help make the skin healthy, smoother, and more hydrated.  Hydrafacials are also a non-invasive, multi-step treatment that combines the benefits of next-level Hydradermabrasion, a chemical peel, automated painless extractions (without pinching) and of course, the special delivery system of antioxidants — Hyaluronic Acid and peptides. 

All this is done in a quick treatment which delivers results without any downtime or irritation, making it a perfect treatment for nearly every skin type.  The Hyrdafacial uses a unique Vortex-Fusion(r) serum delivery system, which cleanses, evenly exfoliates and extracts to remove impurities and dead skin cells, while at the same time replenishing vital nutrients. 

A Hydrafacial helps against environmental damage, reduces fines lines and wrinkles, and plumps and firms skin for long term results you can see and feel instantly.  This treatment can also help with skin circulation, improve collagen production, reduce unwanted pigmentation, cleanse pores, remove blackheads, and reduce acne scarring.

If you want the benefits of traditional microdermabrasion, but need better results, that are easier on your skin, the Hydrafacial (and Hydradermabrasion) might be perfect for you! Learn more about Hydrafacials, and other skin treatments, or reserve your appointment online.
