Changes in the seasons can have a significant effect on the skin. Winter can be rough on sensitive facial skin, causing it to become too dry, crack, and feel uncomfortable. Also, people with skin problems like eczema may notice that their skin gets even redder and irritated.
HydraFacial is the first facial skin resurfacing treatment that exfoliates and moisturizes the skin at the same time. It is a soothing treatment that helps dry, damaged winter skin looks and feels better after just one session.
At Ageless Beauty Center, our skin experts recommend HydraFacial treatments to heal the skin and protect it from the drying effects of cold winter air. Discover more about how we can help you with this post.
How changes in the weather affect the skin
In the winter, the air is cold and dry and dries out the skin on your face. Even though it’s warm and cozy, heated air still dries the skin. Warm showers or baths can also remove the oil barrier that protects the skin from the harsh winter weather.
Many people try to get rid of dry skin by putting on thick layers of lotions and moisturizers. But too much moisture can lead to greasy skin and pimples because pores get clogged. In the winter, many types of skin don’t respond well to moisturizers on the surface.
This is why HydraFacials are great for long-term skin health. A HydraFacial treatment can give your skin-deep hydration that can last for weeks in just 30 to 60 minutes. The whole process can be changed to fit the needs of each person while providing the following key benefits.
How does HydraFacial work?
A HydraFacial is a patented skin treatment that removes dead skin cells and dirt deep inside your pores. It then hydrates your skin with a special serum made of protein. It’s a treatment that doesn’t hurt you and gives your skin a new look and feels without using harsh chemicals or dermabrasion.
What kinds of skin problems can be fixed with a HydraFacial?
The HydraFacial is suitable for all skin types, whether dry, oily, or in between. It makes your skin look better and helps if you have any of the following skin problems:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Hyperpigmentation (excess of melanin, causing dark spots)
- Sun damage
- Oily skin
- Large pores
- Dry skin
- Thin skin
- Aging skin
What happens when you get a HydraFacial?
Usually, your esthetician will first use a steamer to open your skin’s pores. Then, a patented nozzle is used to simultaneously clean and exfoliate your skin. It works like a vacuum to eliminate dead skin cells and other debris. While the steamer is on, the nozzle moves slowly across your skin.
The next step is the peel, which your aesthetician will make to work best for your skin. You’ll probably get a gentle peel from a mix of glycolic and salicylic acids. There will be a slight tingling.
The peel prepares your face for the next part of the HydraFacial, which is the extraction. Your aesthetician deep cleans your pores with the second HydraFacial nozzle.
Together with a patented serum that cleans your skin without irritating it, the nozzle works like a vacuum to pull dirt from deep within your skin.
HydraFacial’s third nozzle, a protective serum with a patent, is rubbed deep into your skin. It has peptides, hyaluronic acid, and antioxidants. This potent mix of ingredients helps your skin look younger by removing brown spots and tightening loose skin.
When the winter wind blows, no one doesn’t get chapped lips. If you have “winter” lips that are still dry even when you wear lipstick, you’ll notice a difference because your lips are part of your HydraFacial.
At the end of your treatment, your aesthetician puts on moisturizer, sunscreen, and lip balm. When you look in the mirror, your skin will glow beautifully. Here’s what you can benefit from this treatment during the winter season.
Even if you drink enough water during the day, your skin cells still need to be hydrated on the outside. During a HydraFacial, our providers infuse the skin with the best moisturizers and serums for your specific needs.
This infusion will last all month and can be used with other moisturizing skin products at home. Our providers can give tips on choosing the best skin care products to use at home to treat dryness, flakiness, redness, and other winter skin problems.
Infusion of Vitamins and Antioxidants
Cells need food to grow and work well. During treatment, specific vitamin serums are put on the surface of your skin, and antioxidants are placed on top of the skin.
This gives your skin the best anti-aging benefits possible. These serums deeply hydrate and nourish your skin, which helps prevent windburn in the winter and protects it from other harsh elements.
They also help reduce inflammation, speed up the growth of new cells, and fix sun damage.
Better flow of blood
As skin gets older, its natural blood flow slows down, which makes the skin look dull. A HydraFacial increases the blood flow to the face, which makes the skin look healthy. With better circulation, your skin will look younger all winter long.
A clearer face
Blackheads and clogged pores can be caused by skin care products you use at home. During the extraction step, the HydraFacial uses painless suction to pull out impurities deep within the pores.
Once the dirt is gone, the skin is ready to take in moisturizing products. During the extraction process, acne, blackheads, and other skin impurities that cause skin blemishes and imperfections will be removed from the pores.
Why is a HydraFacial more effective than a regular facial?
The ingredients in HydraFacial’s medical-grade serum are more potent than those in regular facials or moisturizers you can buy. The serum makes your skin more collagen, the essential protein for your skin.
Collagen gives your skin elasticity and firmness. As you get older, the collagen in your skin decreases. This is why your skin starts to sag and lose its elasticity.
Can anyone get something out of a HydraFacial?
HydraFacial is suitable for most people, but it’s not for everyone. HydraFacial can hurt your skin if you have a rash, sunburn, or rosacea. Some of the ingredients in the HydraFacial haven’t been tested on pregnant women, so it’s best to wait until after your baby is born to treat yourself.
To get the most out of your HydraFacial treatment and keep getting the benefits, you can schedule a maintenance treatment every 5-7 months or choose treatments every month.
You can also get the most out of these benefits by taking care of your skin using broad-spectrum sunscreen daily, drinking a lot of water, eating a healthy, well-balanced diet, and ensuring you get enough sleep.
