The winter is here, and along with it are the perfect conditions to create dry skin. There is no time of year when it is more critical to hydrate your skin than in the winter months. Cold, windy and dry days are only compounded by indoor heaters and furnaces that remove the humidity indoors. Unfortunately, the combination of these elements leads to dehydrated skin, which is more prone to wrinkles and damage. Therefore, instead of sitting idly by this winter and those cold months wreak havoc on your face, try a Hydrafacial and revitalize your skin.
What is a Hydrafacial?
While you may know to hydrate your skin in the winter, you may not understand the importance of doing so on a deeper level. A Hydrafacial, in a nutshell, is a medical-grade resurfacing treatment. Primarily, it uses suction to remove dead skin cells while simultaneously hydrating the skin with moisturizing serums.
How Does it Work?
While the goal is to hydrate the skin, treatment is not as simple as applying moisturizing cremes. There are essentially three steps to the treatment process.
The first step is meant to reveal a new layer of skin. To do this, you will undergo a cleanse and peel, gently exfoliating and resurfacing the area.
Extraction and Moisturize
Once the skin is relaxed and pores open, the dermatologist will use a suction tool to clean the pores. Once the face is clean, moisturizers will be applied to the skin surface to nourish and hydrate the area.
Protection and Fusion
Last, the dermatologist will apply a layer of antioxidants and peptides to aid in the healing and look of your skin. These applications will provide a youthful and vibrant natural glow.
Who Can enjoy This Treatment?
I do not limit a Hydrafacial to a specific pool of patients. Anyone can benefit from treatment. Do you have fine lines and wrinkles, blemishes, brown spots, congested and oily skin or any number of other skincare issues? If so, then this treatment may be perfect for you. There are three Hydrafacial boosters or serums that you can choose from to address your specific skincare concern.
If you are concerned with signs of aging, then consider the dermabuilder boost. This serum revitalizes the skin with a combination of peptides.
Do you have any fine lines and wrinkles that bother you? If so, think about using the growth factor boost to restore the vitality and health of your skin.
If you have an uneven complexion, then consider using the britenol boost. This serum reduces the appearance of sunspots and other dark spots, creating a move even skin tone.
How Long Does a Single Treatment Take?
Another benefit of getting a Hydrafacial is that the treatment does not take long. A standard procedure takes anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes, with most treatments taking around 30 minutes.
During these cold, dry winter months, it is necessary to hydrate your skin to prevent any significant or long-term damage. If you are interested in a Hydrafacial or any other dermatological procedure, contact Windsor Dermatology to schedule an appointment and discuss your treatment options.
