We are excited to now offer HydraFacial® at Dr. Banis Plastic Surgery. This treatment aims to achieve superior results through gentle, liquid-based exfoliation. Furthermore, the treatment aims to infuse the skin with potent ingredients, to increase skin health in the long term and giving the skin a radiant glow.
Patented Vortex Deep Cleansing tips allow for premier exfoliation but while hydrating your skin at the same time and not leaving it dry and irritated. It is amazing how great your skin looks and feels…we just love it. It’s way more than a facial!
- Vortex Cleansing & Hydrapeel Exfoliation: This step of the HydraFacial is designed to remove dead cells from the skin’s surface through water-based exfoliation. Further, the benefit of this initial step is the removal of sebum, which can otherwise block penetration of skin care ingredients and exacerbate the clogging of pores, as it can act almost like a glue for small particles.
- Pore Loosening: The second step in the HydraFacial is to infuse the pores with a mild mix of salicylic and glycolic acids. These are common ingredients for pore cleansing and are often included in anti-acne and skin care programs for their ability to loosen pore plugs that are responsible for inflammatory acne.
- Pore Extraction: During this step of treatment, the loosened pore plugs and dirt are removed through the combination of vortex cleaning action of the HydraFacial applicator, combined with the immediate suctioning of the dirt and other particles. This step is meant to provide deep cleaning of the skin, to reduce future acne breakouts and boost penetration by helpful skin care ingredients.
- Serum Fusion: The last step involves infusing the skin with peptides, antioxidants and hyaluronic acid. It is an interesting combination of ingredients as these chemicals may improve skin health in a variety of ways. For example, the antioxidants help repair skin damage, while the peptides can provide the essential building blocks for skin cell structures. Further, the hyaluronic acid can reduce the appearance of wrinkles in the short term by drawing moisture to the treatment site.
