If you have dry, aging, or damaged skin, you already know how difficult it can be to keep your complexion looking its best. Unfortunately, with summer comes even dryer, more damaged skin. Now is the perfect time to schedule a HydraFacial at our Des Moines medi-spa. It can help rejuvenate and nourish your skin without harsh, irritating ingredients.
How do I know if HydraFacial is right for me?
During your consultation, we will work with you to understand your skincare goals and concerns. We will evaluate your skin and give you an idea of the type of results you can expect from HydraFacial treatments. With this information, we will develop a skincare plan that may include other complementary treatments to help you achieve your desired results.
The HydraFacial is a 4-step process:
- Cleanse & Exfoliate: We will start by washing your face and removing the outer layers of dead, dull skin. This will make your skin more receptive to the next steps.
- Acid Peel: Next, we’ll use a superficial peel to loosen and dislodge impurities from your skin without causing irritation or redness.
- Extractions: We will then move a painless suction device across your skin to clear away any existing breakouts.
- Hydration: Finally, we will use an innovative handheld tool to fuse antioxidants and hyaluronic acid deep into your skin.
Who is a good candidate for the treatment?
HydraFacials can provide dramatic results, but they are also gentle enough to suit almost any skin type, tone, and texture. Instead of covering up blemishes and discoloration, this treatment can actually improve your skin’s health for beauty you can see and feel. A HydraFacial can address the following concerns:
- Enlarged pores
Does it hurt?
The HydraFacial treatment is a gentle process that only about 30 minutes to complete. Most patients describe the treatment as comfortable and relaxing.
What is the recovery like?
One of the reasons this treatment is so popular is that it requires no recovery period. You can immediately return to your normal daily activities after your appointment.
How long will the results last?
You’ll notice that your skin feels smooth and healthy as soon you leave our office. Results last about a week, so patients often schedule their appointments before big events, such as weddings, photos, or parties. To maintain these results over time, you can schedule a series of treatments as a regular part of your skincare routine.
The HydraFacial has not only become popular at my practice but also is trendy all over the U.S. If you want to learn more about HydraFacial or other skincare treatments, request a consultation online or call our office at (515) 277-5555.
