What Makes a HydraFacial Different?

If you’ve ever had a facial, you know how fresh and clean your face feels afterward. But sometimes, facials can be irritating, and often, the results last just a little while. Sometimes, even though your skin feels great, you may not notice any real improvement in the way your skin looks to others. And that can be more than just a little disappointing.

At Dutch Hollow Medical Day Spa, we take facials to the next level. Our HydraFacial treatments are designed to provide you with all the benefits of a traditional facial — and lots more besides. The HydraFacial system is designed to exfoliate skin while it replenishes moisture and nutrients deep below the skin’s surface. And because HydraFacial uses special patented technology, it’s safe enough and gentle enough for just about anyone.

Benefits of a HydraFacial

HydraFacials use a technique called hydrodermabrasion. Like the name implies, hydrodermabrasion uses gentle dermabrasion action to loosen and remove layers of dead, dry skin, combined with deep hydration for better skin health. The HydraFacial system incorporates patented Vortex-Fusion technology to gently dissolve excess oils and lift out deeply embedded grime and impurities, along with dead skin cells, providing a deep clean that rids pores of dirt while stimulating healthy circulation. At the same time, the combination of the vortex action and gentle fusion delivers hydrating nutrients and moisture at the skin’s surface and at deeper layers to provide skin with maximum health benefits.

Even better: The HydraFacial system uses special formulations of nutrients and moisturizers that can be adjusted and customized based on your skin’s unique needs and the issues you’re facing. At Dutch Hollow Medical Day Spa, we can combine elements to create treatments to address issues like:

Our formulas are specially created to provide deep reconditioning and nourishment that can help your skin look its best for months after your HydraFacial treatment.

Three steps to great results

HydraFacial’s Vortex-Fusion system is one of the key differences between a regular facial and a HydraFacial. By facilitating better cleansing and deeper delivery of key nutrients and hydration, HydraFacial is far more effective at improving skin health and in reducing the appearance of lines, wrinkles and other types of damage. To get the most benefit from the vortex action, HydraFacial treatments are performed in three steps, with each step building on the previous action to help skin look and feel its best.

Step 1: Cleansing and exfoliation

In the first step, the HydraFacial system cleans your skin deep down, getting rid of oils, grime and other debris deep into your pores. At the same time, the gentle exfoliation action loosens dead, dull skin cells that can make your skin look old and tired out.

Step 2: Extraction and hydration

Next, HydraFacial’s extraction action goes to work. In this step, gentle vacuum suction combines with the vortex technology to whisk away the oils and debris loosened in Step 1, leaving your skin incredibly fresh. With your pores open, your skin is especially receptive to special hydrating agents, formulated to provide skin with the special type of moisture it needs to thrive and replenish itself.

Step 3: Nutrition and protection

During the third step of your HydraFacial treatment, the system’s fusion action takes over, delivering an added dose of nourishing and protective elements designed to ward off future damage and keep your skin healthy. This is where those special, custom formulations come into play, providing your skin with the special nutrients it needs to look and feel its best. Depending on what your skin needs, your formulation might focus on preventing breakouts, avoiding sun damage, or reducing age-related issues like fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven texture.

Replenish your skin with HydraFacial

HydraFacial technology is effective enough to treat a wide range of complexion issues, but gentle enough for just about anyone. Plus, HydraFacial treatments can be repeated throughout the year as needed, so you can maintain your results indefinitely.
