Hydrodermabrasion is one of the most recent advances in the world of professional skincare. It can cleanse your pores, provide thorough exfoliation, and infuse your skin with nutrients. The treatment uses a hand-held device that delivers oxygen and water-based serums in a non-invasive way that is safe for all skin types. At Newport Face N Body Medical Spa in Irvine, CA, we recommend this treatment because we have seen the powerful results.
What Does Hydrodermabrasion Treat?
This treatment is a versatile solution for many skin conditions. These include:
- Light scars
- Sun damage
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Clogged pores and blackheads
- Dry skin
- Oily skin
- Age spots and an uneven texture
- Dull skin
- Stubborn makeup residue
You’ll probably notice that this is a long list of very different issues. How can the same treatment be effective for all these dissimilar problems? If you are surprised that the same approach alleviates both dry skin and excessive oil production, here’s why it works:
This treatment was designed to promote generally healthy skin, which in turn shows on the outside. After all, skin that is healthy is beautiful. All of the conditions listed above are aggravated and exaggerated by a lack of hydration, insufficient nutrients, and built-up debris. By treating the root cause of these problems, this treatment delivers beautiful results.
How Does Hydrodermabrasion Give You Healthy Skin?
This approach achieves healthy, glowing skin in four ways: cleansing, exfoliating, moisturizing, and nourishing. All four of these aspects of skincare have numerous benefits. Here is a breakdown of why each is so important:
Your skin is the largest organ in your body, and it needs to breathe. When your pores become clogged with dirt, oil, and particles, your skin is prone to breakouts and dullness. This treatment uses a special device to flush out the built-up impurities. It does so in a way that is mild, using a spiral tip to vacuum out the debris and replace it with nourishing hydration.
If you have ever had extractions done during a facial, you know that unclogging pores is not always a pain-free process. With hydrodermabrasion, things are different. There is no pinching or discomfort: just a gentle, water-based approach to a thorough cleansing. Afterward, people won’t see your clogged pores. They’ll just see your beautiful skin.
Exfoliation can make a huge difference in the appearance of your skin. The idea is to remove damaged cells on the top layer of your skin, usually with physical or chemical agents. This stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, both of which help keep your skin smooth and structured. When the dead cells are gone, fresh, healthy ones come to replace them.
Exfoliating can and should be done regularly with at-home products, but the best results require professional treatment. Skincare experts recommend this kind of service once a month or on a bimonthly basis.
One option is microdermabrasion, which uses crystals to break up the top layer of skin. Hydrodermabrasion is an updated way to exfoliate your skin without causing irritation or micro-scarring. It provides all of the benefits of microdermabrasion in a new way. Instead of using crystals, it exfoliates with the power of water. This approach is gentler and safer, especially for people who have sensitive skin.
Keeping your skin moisturized is essential for a good appearance and optimal health. Properly hydrated skin is less susceptible to flaking, rashes, and even serious concerns like cancer. Did you know that a lack of moisture might actually cause excessive oil production and acne? This happens because your skin tries to protect itself by over-compensating for the dryness.
Moreover, hydrating your skin is key to maintaining a full, plump appearance. While dry skin is prone to showing fine lines and wrinkles, moisturizing can give you volume and a supple texture. Because this treatment uses moisturizing serums to cleanse and exfoliate, it delivers hydration to your skin at the same time. Throughout the application, your skincare expert will massage the excess liquid into your skin, making sure that you get all the benefits.
The moisturizing serums that are used to cleanse your skin go beyond hydration. They are infused with vitamins and antioxidants. This is especially beneficial for people who have sun-damaged skin. The nourishment you receive during this treatment helps to reverse the damage that causes signs of aging, decreasing inflammation and protecting the structure of your cells. Like the rest of your body, your skin looks and feels the best after it has had its vitamins.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Hydrodermabrasion?
People Who Want Healthy-Looking Skin
One of the best things about this treatment is that it can benefit just about everyone. The glow of health is universal, and everyone wants fantastic-looking skin. As long as you are over 16, you can experience the results yourself.
People With Sensitive Skin
This treatment is a particularly good option for people who have sensitive skin because it is gentle and unlikely to cause irritation. In fact, it is even more easy-going on your skin than most facials. Moreover, it works especially well for people who want the effects of microdermabrasion but are unable to tolerate the ablative process.
People Who Have Acne
Many things contribute to acne, from hormones to changes in the weather to certain kinds of bacteria. Clogged pores are a big factor because they make it difficult for your skin to flush out oil and debris. As a result, they become irritated and prone to breakouts. This treatment provides relief with its cleansing solutions.
People Who See the Signs of Aging on Their Faces
Like acne, fine lines and wrinkles are the results of many factors. The first is genetics. Some people are prone to losing collagen and elastin faster than others. The second is sun exposure. UV ray damage is the leading cause of wrinkles. Other factors such as a lack of nutrients, too much stress, and not getting enough sleep will all show up as creases on your face.
This treatment works in several ways to restore your smoothness. First, the hydration plumps your skin. Second, the exfoliation removes cells that show evidence of damage. Third, the antioxidants help your cells renew themselves and look healthier.
What Are the Benefits of Hydraodermabrasion?
Clear Skin and Reduced Pore Size
After this treatment, your skin will feel refreshed and thoroughly cleansed. Without weeks of build-up and residue, your pores will shrink to a healthy size and finally be able to breathe. You will notice a remarkable reduction in blackheads, whiteheads, and acne.
Healthier, Younger-Looking Skin
The moisture and vitamins provided during this treatment will go to work instantly by infusing your skin with hydration and reducing the appearance of fine lines. Meanwhile, the exfoliation will stimulate collagen and elastin to restore your natural age-fighting defenses. Additionally, the massaging motion of the device encourages lymph flow, which helps your body clear toxins.
A Brighter, Glowing Complexion
If you have been feeling tired or stressed out lately, this treatment will help you get your glow back. All of the health benefits will show up on your face, giving you a bright, radiant look. Many patients even report that their eyes look significantly less puffy after this treatment.
A More Even Texture
When the damaged top layer of your skin is gently resurfaced during this treatment, the result is a more even texture. Acne scars and sun spots lighten up, giving you a smoother appearance.
