What You Need to Know
By Dr. Kristina Zachary
The popularity of professional facials is at an all time high – and the new HydraFacial is taking the industry by storm. You may have heard about this red-carpet favourite of celebrities like Beyonce and Kate Winslet, and it really is worth the hype.
Dr. Kristina Zakhary, a leading Otolaryngologist Head and Neck Surgeon with a special focus on Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery based in Calgary, talked about this amazing new facial and why it’s important to invest in facials as part of your regular skin care routine.
What is a HydraFacial?
The HydraFacial is a medical grade hydra-dermabrasion treatment with a simple and effective three part system that cleanses, exfoliates and hydrates by infusing serums, including antioxidants, peptides and hyaluronic acids into the skin. This approach vacuums out pores while simultaneously pushing in potent actives which moisturize, brighten, plump and protect.
Who would this treatment be good for?
The HydraFacial appeals to all ages and complexions. Beyond the standard, there are targeted add-ons which take aim at unique skin concerns, like brown spots or fine lines. This treatment can be customized to concerns such as for the acne-prone teenager, bride-to-be or those who want real anti-aging results.
Is it painful or uncomfortable?
The HydraFacial is never painful. Although the treatment combines elements of microdermabrasion and chemical peels, the patented hand piece allows for a relaxing, good-feel experience by combining vortex pressure with a clog-purging solution of salicylic acid, willow bark extract and anti-inflammatory Tasmanian pepper.
When do you see results?
HydraFacial guests get instant gratification with zero down-time, so much so that it’s most often requested before big events and weddings to deliver that extra glow. The device’s superior delivery system allows the ingredients to effectively mitigate environmental damage, reduce fine lines and wrinkles and plump and firm the skin for long-term results that guests can see and feel instantly.
What’s the first step for those who think this would be right for them?
It’s always best to speak with a licensed Esthetician before seeking treatment so that she can customize and address any concerns or reservations you may have.
