A HydraFacial® is an excellent way to improve your skin's overall health by boosting hydration, addressing your skin's specific needs with customized serums, and exfoliating to stimulate the production of new, healthy skin cells.
This type of facial is gentle and ideal for a variety of skin conditions, particularly dry or aging skin. The treatments produce immediate results that you can notice even before leaving the office. While it doesn’t prevent aging, it can improve the signs of aging and help your skin look younger. Here are some of the top reasons why you should consider this treatment.
At Westport MediSpa, board-certified physician Dana Brownell, MD, specializes in aesthetic medicine and offers a range of nonsurgical cosmetic treatments to help enhance, renew, and beautify the skin and body.
The HydraFacial is a unique treatment that hydrates, renews, and envirogates in a single session.
What is a HydraFacial?
The Hydrafacial tool is a penlike device that applies serums onto your skin and then quickly vacuums them back up. This system allows products to penetrate deeply into your skin without overburdening it.
It also loosens congestion, which is then removed using vacuum technology. The pen (known as a Vortex Pen) can be personalized using the serums within the machine so that the Vortex Pen can deliver a tailored regime for you.
If your skin is sensitive to certain products, we can easily change up the products to provide an individualized HydraFacial experience.
A HydraFacial begins with exfoliation to remove impurities from the skin's surface. The wand exfoliates your skin and gently extracts impurities and dead skin cells with a mild vacuum device. When your skin is clean and your pores are clear, you will notice fewer breakouts and a healthy glow on your skin.
Softer more even skin
Once your skin is clean and refreshed, it’s further improved. The HydraFacial tool shrinks enlarged pores. Smaller pores make your skin appear more even. A HydraFacial is an excellent treatment for sensitive skin, as well as acne- and rosacea-prone skin. It can clear up blemishes and reduce redness without the use of harsh treatments.
Improves signs of aging
HydraFacial treatments are especially beneficial for aging skin. Whether you have dry skin, age spots, or the beginnings of fine lines and wrinkles, this simple treatment can remove years of age from your face. Following exfoliation, serums containing antioxidants and growth factors are applied to the skin to hydrate and rejuvenate it. This serum boosts collagen and elastin production in the area, filling in lines and wrinkles and subtly plumping up sagging skin.
A HydraFacial usually takes between 30 and 60 minutes, making it perfect for those with busy lifestyles. Our team can easily schedule a HydraFacial around your appointments and obligations. You can return to work or errands right away without worrying about red or irritated skin.
Versatile and customizable treatment
These treatments are highly adaptable. Our knowledgeable team can help you select the most effective serums for antiaging, dry skin, oily skin, acne, dull skin, and much more.
While HydraFacial treatments are available at a variety of clinics, it’s best to get a HydraFacial from a licensed physician. Make an appointment with Dr. Brownell to learn more about this next level facial! Call our Westport office at 203-227-5437 today.
