** Pre-Treatment Guidelines: Your skincare professional may provide you with specific instructions to follow before your HydraFacial® appointment. These guidelines may include avoiding excessive sun exposure, tanning beds, and certain skincare products for a few days prior to the treatment.
Before the HydraFacial® Treatment:
- Consultation: Before the treatment, you will have a consultation with one of our renowned dermatologists, Dr. Bradley Glodny or Dr. Robert Warner. They will assess your skin type, discuss your concerns and goals, and customize the treatment plan to address your needs. The doctors will also take the time to answer any questions and ensure you are comfortable with the procedure. Your plan will then be discussed with one of Park Avenue Dermatology’s expert HydraFacial® technicians, who will perform the treatment.
- Makeup Removal: On the day of your treatment, it is advisable to arrive with a clean face, free from makeup and other skincare products. Your skincare professional will thoroughly cleanse your skin before starting the treatment.
During the HydraFacial® Treatment:
- Cleansing and Exfoliation: The treatment begins with a gentle cleansing of the skin to remove any surface impurities. A specialized HydraFacial® device is then used to exfoliate the skin, removing dead skin cells and preparing it for the subsequent steps.
- Acid Peel: Depending on your skin type and concerns, a mild acid peel may be applied to further exfoliate the skin and promote a smoother texture.
- Extraction: The HydraFacial® device utilizes a gentle suction hydra vortex technology to extract impurities and debris from the pores, including blackheads and whiteheads. This step is comfortable and should not cause any significant discomfort. This is considered the heart of the procedure and works wonderfully for those pesky pores on your nose.
- Hydration and Infusion: The next stage involves nourishing and hydrating the skin with a combination of serums and antioxidants. These serums are delivered through the HydraFacial® device, which helps to penetrate them deeper into the skin for enhanced results.
- LED Light Therapy: Some HydraFacial® treatments may incorporate LED light therapy to stimulate collagen production, reduce inflammation, or target specific skin concerns. You will be left with a luminous glow like you’ve likely never experienced.
After the HydraFacial® Treatment:
- Immediate Results: Following a HydraFacial® treatment, you can expect to see immediate improvements in your skin’s tone, texture, and overall radiance. Your skin will feel refreshed, hydrated, and rejuvenated.
- No Downtime: Unlike many other facial treatments, HydraFacial® requires no downtime. You can resume your regular activities immediately after the treatment.
- Post-Treatment Guidelines: Your skincare professional will provide you with post-treatment guidelines to ensure optimal results and maintain the health of your skin. These guidelines may include avoiding direct sunlight, applying sunscreen, and using specific skincare products tailored to your needs.
- Long-Term Benefits: While you will notice an immediate improvement in your skin’s appearance after a single HydraFacial® treatment, for more significant and long-lasting results, a series of treatments is often recommended. Your skincare professional will advise you on the ideal treatment plan based on your skin condition and goals.
- Follow-up Appointments: To maintain the benefits of HydraFacial®, it is recommended to schedule regular follow up. Many patients work the HydraFacial® treatment into their skin care routine coming in monthly for treatments.
