Why should I consider monthly HydraFacials?
HydraFacial may be used on any skin type and is effective in treating a wide variety of skin issues, including fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, dull skin, uneven skin tone and texture, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage.
Because HydraFacial is a non-invasive process that is mild on the skin, it is recommended that you schedule regular appointments to keep your skin looking as radiant as it did after your first treatment.
Because your skin is continually renewing itself and because dead skin cells are always being pushed up to the epidermis from the dermis, a monthly HydraFacial treatment can assist to remove these cells and the congestion, dullness, and flakiness they cause.
Is There a Limit to How Often You Can Get a HydraFacial?
The simple answer is that treatments with HydraFacial may be performed as frequently as once a month. It’s safe to say that this is the sweet spot for most people and the frequency that can produce the most visible skin-enhancing effects. From anti-aging to acne management, many cosmetic issues can be resolved with just one treatment every four weeks.
Can I Get It More Frequently Than Every Four Weeks?
While you may benefit from seeing your aesthetician every four weeks like the average client, there are a few scenarios in which you may want to see your aesthetician more frequently. People with oily or acne-prone skin may benefit from having this treatment performed every two to three weeks. Treatments at a tighter interval may help you bring your skin problem under control sooner. This is why:
Acne is much more than just a few spots here and there. Dryness, redness, irritation, enlarged pores, whiteheads, blackheads, and pustules are all signs of acne. Dry skin, acne scarring, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation all contribute to an uneven skin tone that acne can exacerbate.
More regular use of this facial treatment has been shown to decrease the number of acne-causing bacteria on the skin’s surface and increase the rate at which dead skin cells are shed. Because of the method in which this therapy encourages collagen formation, it may also reduce the appearance of larger pores and acne scars brought on by an uneven distribution of collagen.
One further case where more regular treatments would be beneficial is if your skin tends to get oily easily. Overproduction of sebum in the dermal layer is what causes oily skin, which can be brought on by hormonal shifts or, oddly enough, as a reparative response to skin that has been too dried out. Managing oily skin is essential since it can lead to acne and makes applying makeup more challenging.
How Often Skin Cells Replace Themself?
While it’s true that most individuals can benefit from treatments every 4 weeks, the optimal frequency really depends on how quickly your skin cells renew. Dead skin cells are constantly being replaced by new ones as part of your body’s natural process of cell turnover. On the other hand, your skin’s ability to shed dead cells gradually decreases as you get older, so you may need this treatment less regularly as you get older if your skin is mature.
When Skin Turns Over, What Exactly Occurs?
A human skin cell renews itself every 28–40 days. This process affects every single skin cell on your body, from your head to your toes. The body keeps renewing its supply of skin cells.
Is Faster Turnover a Good Thing?
Faster cellular turnover is associated with improved health and the proper performance of skin proteins. Exfoliating the skin and using products containing Retinol, acid exfoliants, and vitamin C are associated with a faster turnover rate, as are younger persons. A more even complexion and decreased signs of aging have both been linked to increased cell turnover.
What effect does acne have on skin cell turnover?
Constant shedding of dead skin cells, which can clog pores and produce acne, is a natural part of the skin’s cell turnover process, but it can be impeded by malfunctions and hormonal changes. The inability or slowness of the skin to shed dead skin cells is a possible contributing to acne-prone skin.
Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation is a visible sign of how acne affects cell turnover in the skin. As the skin heals after an outbreak, it may be left with a pigmented area that is either dark or red depending on the severity of the inflammation. Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation can affect people with acne-prone skin for weeks or months after an outbreak.
The end result is…
This therapy intends to restore the skin’s youthful appearance by addressing its most visible flaws, namely, uneven skin tone and texture. To do this, nourishing serums are applied to the skin while impurities are drawn to the surface for removal. The treatment’s effects include a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, a lessening of dryness and dark spots, and an increase in hydration and skin flexibility.
What can you do to keep these benefits for a longer period of time?
Most people who have medical treatment want to do anything they can to preserve, improve, and extend the effects of that treatment. Given that this is a treatment meant to improve skin health, efforts to extend the treatment’s beneficial effects should focus on doing the same: Increasing your skin’s natural moisture, using the correct skincare products, and protecting yourself from the sun are all great ways to do this.
Is There Any Other Therapy That Can Be Combined With This One?
Facials are great for addressing minor skin issues, but they may not be adequate for more serious cosmetic concerns like dynamic wrinkles or noticeable skin laxity. That’s why it could make sense to pair it with one or more of our other cosmetic services, like:
- Chemical peels
- Neurotoxins (ie Botox)
- Laser Genesis
