HydraFacial Gramercy New York
The HydraFacial is growing in power. You’ve probably heard this narrative before: this cosmetic treatment you haven’t heard of (yet) is about to blow up, is blowing up, and you’re about to find out why.
But let’s hit hard with some numbers: over two million HydraFacials are expected to performed this year. That’s more procedures performed than Botox procedures performed in the United States.
And that’s a big deal.
What’s the Big Deal with the Hydrafacial?
You might ask what exactly is so great about this procedure that people are flocking to it.
The first hint is that the HydraFacial presents itself in the line of Skin Rejuvenation treatments. That’s your lasers, your microneedles, your peels.
But hold up a second here. There’s more to the treatment. For one thing, it occurs in three stages, and “dermabrasion,” technically isn’t one of those stages. Cleansing, exfoliation, and then infusing.
Now, we cheated a bit, because exfoliation is basically dermabrasion. But those two other stages still make a big difference.
Vacuuming out Your Pores
Ugh! Pores. A word for something we need but that in our daily lives usually means trouble. They get filled with oil, gunk, and dirt–and sometimes appear way too big to look nice on a school photo.
But the HydraFacial vacuums out these pores in its first stage, cleansing, before it gently exfoliates the skin to get the usual collagen synthesizing effect we associate with skin rejuvenation.
And in its final stage? It actually pushes in active ingredients to make the skin rejuvenation process more effective. Think moisturizing serums or salicyclic acid.
And all of this is possible thanks to the patented vortex technology underlying the procedure.
All of this is a big deal. And it can be done in 30 minutes or less.
A glowing face. Isn’t this what everyone wants? Radiant, youthful, glowing–these are all synonyms for that look you get right out of the shower.
Of course, moist, bright, and dewy skin isn’t something we can have all the time.
Or is it?
The HydraFacial certainly begs to differ.
The High-Tech Treatment Between a Facial and a Skin Rejuvenation Treatment
Skin rejuvenation is the name of the game when it comes to restoring youthfulness to the face. It typically operates on the principle of dermabrasion (or a similar process).
That means, skin rejuvenation treatments deliver precise damage to the skin to stimulate collagen production. The increased collagen to the face gives it more building blocks to create the healthy structures it needs.
That’s what gives you that radiant glow.
The HydraFacial, while it may not cause as much collagen production as, say, a chemical peel, operates on a similar principle.
But it takes certain aspects a step further.
First, it cleanses out pores with a vacuuming process — utilizing proprietary ‘vortex’ technology.
It exfoliates, just as a dermabrasion product would.
Then, using the vortex technology, it sends in active ingredients to facilitate the synthesis process.
What’s This All Mean?
The gist of it is that higher tech allows the HydraFacial to deliver great results without necessarily doing as much damage to your face.
While lasers and peels are very precise, they still imply a certain amount of damage to the face to achieve results.
The HydraFacial makes up for its milder methods through high-tech. It cleanses pores thoroughly, and inserts active ingredients that synergize with the synthesis process — ingredients like salicyclic acid, hyaluronic acid, or antioxidants.
And all of this in 30 minutes with absolutely no downtime.
