Despite using the best creams and serums, fine lines and wrinkles can stick around if you don’t pair your skincare regime with the right treatments.
Fine lines and wrinkles are an inevitable part of the ageing process and a result of the loss of collagen and elastin. The older we get, the less collagen and elastin is produced, which is when the skin starts to lose its strength and elasticity. Other factors such as sun exposure and smoking can accelerate the ageing process.
There are a number of different treatments available that combat the early signs of ageing, with facials being one of the most popular. The HydraFacial is taking things one step further though and is fast becoming the preferred choice for people across the globe.
A Closer Look at the HydraFacial
Unlike traditional facial treatments that have one specific objective such as exfoliation, the HydraFacial combines three treatments into one. During a HydraFacial at MIRA Clinic, your skin will be cleansed, exfoliated and hydrated, leaving you with soft, plump skin and a healthy glow.
Along with removing impurities, a HydraFacial also hydrates the skin and provides it with essential nutrients. This revolutionary treatment is designed to address fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone and texture, enlarged pores and age spots.
HydraFacials – a Three-Step Process
This is what will take place during your HydraFacial:
Step 1: Exfoliation: First, a serum is used refresh the skin. The HydraFacial vacuum is designed to help the skin absorb as much of the serum’s nutrients as possible.
Step 2: Peel: A peel that contains Glycolic acid and salicylic acid is then used to get rid of any dead skin cells.
Step 3: Extraction: Dirt, oil and dead skin cells will now be removed from the pores and the surface of the skin.
Step 4: Hydration: A specialised serum that contains a unique blend of peptides, nutrients, antioxidants and hyaluronic acid will now be delivered to moisturise and strengthen the facial tissue.
The serums that are used during your HydraFacial are specifically chosen to treat your unique skin concerns. Your clinician will decide which serum to use after your skin is evaluated during your consultation. Additional procedures such as laser might be added to your treatment plan in an effort to achieve your desired result.
The average HydraFacial lasts 30 to 45 minutes, depending on whether your neck and décolleté will also be treated.
HydraFacials – Results and Side Effects
Unlike traditional facials that can lead to redness and swelling, a HydraFacial is far less invasive so patients can expect to return to their normal daily activities directly after their treatment.
In some cases, patients with highly sensitive skin may experience some slight redness and swelling under the eyes but this rarely lasts longer than 24 hours.
You will be able to see a noticeable difference directly after treatment and if you want to maintain this healthy, youthful glow, it’s recommended that you schedule a HydraFacial every two to three months.
