All the benefits of a facial, with no discomfort

If you have always had a regular facial, you may be surprised to learn that there is a less painful alternative. Although facials aren’t generally all that painful, it is common to feel a bit of discomfort, particularly during the extraction process (when your aesthetician or doctor presses down on your skin to remove dirt and debris from clogged pores). A HydraFacial treatment not only eliminates this type of pain from a facial but more importantly, it offers additional benefits that you may not find in a standard facial.

Am I a Candidate for a HydraFacial?

Anyone interested in improving the overall health and appearance of their facial skin could be a good candidate for a HydraFacial. HydraFacial treatment can be effective on all skin types and tones. To be an ideal candidate for the treatment, you should:

  • Have the desire to deeply cleanse and exfoliate your facial skin
  • Have the desire to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging skin
  • Have cosmetic skin issues that you’d like treated, such as acne, enlarged pores, or rough skin texture
  • Have realistic expectations for the treatment
  • Have no active skin infections or rashes
  • Be free of acne breakouts around the treatment area

Improve your skin in three different ways

A HydraFacial treatment uses a device that can accomplish three things at the same time: exfoliation, extraction and hydration. As these three steps occur simultaneously, the procedure takes no more than 30 minutes to complete. A HydraFacial rejuvenates the skin in the following ways:

  • Removes dead skin cells and dirt
  • Unclogs the pores
  • Leaves the skin supple and healthy

The hydration step in the process is the added benefit that you won’t normally find in a standard facial. The best part is the hydrating solution, which includes various serums and antioxidants to protect the skin from environmental pollution while also keeping it supple and healthy.

What skin concerns does a HydraFacial treatment address?

Patients dealing with the following skin imperfections or issues are ideal candidates for a HydraFacial in Chicago:

  • Acne and acne scarring
  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Loss of skin elasticity or firmness
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Dull skin
  • Dry skin
  • Blackheads
  • Oily skin
  • Age spots and brown spots

A HydraFacial procedure also improves skin texture and the skin’s overall health and appearance. It is your all-in-one solution to various common skin issues. This is why it is one of the most popular non-invasive cosmetic procedures in the country today.

Who can’t have a HydraFacial?

Anyone with a skin blemish they wish to improve is generally eligible for a HydraFacial treatment. Exceptions include clients with a rosacea flare or rashes on the face. Your doctor or aesthetician will first check your skin condition, inquire about your overall health, and discuss your treatment goals before you can be scheduled for treatment. It is important to be open and honest about your expectations so your doctor can discuss with you whether these are realistic expectations or not. Remember that a HydraFacial treatment is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure, and results may not compare to those from a more invasive treatment.

How often will I need a HydraFacial?

At Gold Coast Plastic Surgery in Chicago, a HydraFacial results in smoother, plumper, and healthier skin. If you wish to maintain your results, we advise you to schedule a HydraFacial treatment every 4 to 6 weeks. Since it’s non-invasive and does not use harmful solutions, you won’t have to worry about damaging your skin with frequent facials.

No downtime

This non-invasive facial rejuvenation technique requires no downtime or recovery. This means you can immediately go about your day after your treatment. Additionally, unlike with other non-invasive facial treatments, a HydraFacial does not require you to skip your makeup routine post-procedure. You can apply makeup as you usually would immediately after the procedure if you wish to.

Other benefits of a HydraFacial in Chicago include:

  • It is effective on all skin types.
  • It is generally safe for everyone.
  • Treatment can be customized according to your needs and aesthetic goals. Customization may include additional boosters or serums for the skin.
  • It can be combined with other non-invasive treatments, such as injectables.

How do I prepare for my HydraFacial at Gold Coast Plastic Surgery in Chicago?

There is not much you need to do to prepare for the procedure. If you’re using external exfoliants and retinol-based products, you may be asked to refrain from using these for one week before treatment to minimize the risk of irritation or sensitivity.
