Everyone loves a facial. They’re so relaxing. Ah, but when you have some exfoliation and pore clearing as part of your facial things can get a little uncomfortable, and your skin can become red and sensitive afterwards.
That’s why at Austin Cosmetic Surgery we go typical facials one better with the HydraFacial MD. This awesome treatment for all skin types brings advanced medical technology to the facial for a treatment that has taken the aesthetic world by storm.
What is HydraFacial MD®?
The HydraFacial MD® treatment is a “hydradermabrasion” of sorts. That’s a term you probably won’t hear in a UT science lecture, but it combines deep cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration, and antioxidant protection simultaneously. The treatment results in clearer, healthier skin without any discomfort, downtime, or recovery.
How is the HydraFacial MD treatment done?
HydraFacial MD® is four-step process that cleanses, evenly exfoliates, and extracts impurities and dead skin cells while at the same time replenishing vital nutrients including antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid. The treatment is delivered through a proprietary wand that combines a gentle rotating brush with suction pressure.
- Step 1 — Vortex-Exfoliation
We attach the first head that uses Activ-4 serum and suction to remove surface dead skin cells and open and clear pores. This uncovers the brighter, healthier skin beneath.
- Step 2 — Vortex-Peel
In step 2, through the wand we apply Glysal serum, which consists of a mixture of glycolic and salicylic acids, the ingredients used for light peels. But this peel won’t have the usual post-peel scaling.
- Step 3 — Vortex-Extraction
In step 3, the wand applies patented, painless vortex-suction that cleans out pores with the help of Beta-HD serum.
- Step 4 — Vortex-Fusion
To your thoroughly cleaned and exfoliated skin, in step 4 we apply one of four Antiox+ serums (see below) through the wand. This serum application is the final step of the HydraFacial and replenishes your skin with antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid.
HydraFacials at Austin Cosmetic Surgery take only around 30 minutes.
Different serums for different needs
These are the four different serums we offer at Austin Cosmetic Surgery for the fourth step of your HydraFacial MD. We’ll help you decide which serum is best for your skin.
- Brightalive Booster Serum — Designed to brighten skin tone and lessen the appearance of discoloration.
- Growth Factor Boost — Contains naturally occurring proteins specifically designed to restore skin health, which helps diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Dermabuilder Boost — Designed to effectively address fine lines, skin tone evenness, and texture.
- Britenol Boost — Specially formulated to target dark spots and sun-damaged areas.
The reason HydraFacial MD® has been making such a buzz in the aesthetic world is results that you can see and feel. This treatment delivers vastly improved hydration, while helping to eliminate the appearance of fine lines, hyperpigmentation, oil and congestion, and even creases in the nasolabial folds.
