Introduction to Hydrafacial

Your face is the first thing people see and often determines how you feel about yourself. Most people understand the importance of having a great daily skincare routine but often overlook the fact that their skin needs regular deep cleaning to continue looking its best. Not only is a Hydrafacial relaxing, but it is also extremely impactful for the appearance of your skin as you age. This treatment can enhance your appearance by substantially reducing breakouts and clogged pores and they help to prevent dryness and premature fine lines and wrinkles. We at Premier Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa in Arcadia, CA have many facial treatments available for different concerns and skin types, but we are proud to highlight the Hydrafacial in particular. If you are in the greater Los Angeles or surrounding Pasadena area and looking to give your skin a refreshed look, keep reading below for more information.

Facials- what

What is a Hydrafacial?

Hydrafacial is a patented skin care treatment offering next-level hydration, extraction, and resurfacing results. Our Hydrafacial patients at Premier Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa frequently claim that they have never experienced a deep, rejuvenating, resurfacing beauty treatment like it. The three-step system uses a patented VortexFusion® technology and is suitable for all skin types, tones, and sensitivity levels. Most of our patients can treat acne scarring and signs of aging in a single 30-minute Hydrafacial session.

There is no downtime or recovery with a Hydrafacial, just healthy, glowing skin. We now offer the Hydrafacial system to patients in Arcadia and the greater Los Angeles area, and they just can’t get enough! If you’re ready to experience the difference for yourself, a Hydrafacial can help you, too. Putting your best face forward will be a breeze when you have healthy, glowing, youthful skin, and it can start today!

Hand Rejuvenation – what

Hydrafacial Keravive

HydraFacial Keravive is a unique, relaxing treatment designed to cleanse, stimulate, nourish, and hydrate the scalp in three steps for fuller, thicker, and healthier-looking hair. This treatment can improve scalp health and help facilitate the delivery of other topical medications or treatments.

The Keravive peptide complex solution is 200x more concentrated than any other hair treatment on the market that nourishes and hydrates the scalp and hair with growth factors, peptides, and skin proteins. These proteins are a combination of a fibroblast growth factor, epidermal growth factor, vascular endothelial growth factor, Thymosin Beta-4, panthenol, and arginine that work together to build keratin and skin collagen properties while producing a fuller-looking head of hair.

During a Keravive treatment, the handheld Hydrafacial device will extract dirt, oil, and impurities from the scalp and hair follicles while simultaneously stimulating circulation. The scalp health solution will be applied to deliver the blend of growth factors and skin proteins to stimulate a healthy scalp. We will also provide you with a scalp health spray to use at home that will enhance the benefits of your in-office treatment by delivering daily stimulation and nourishment to keep your scalp and hair follicles healthy.

Hand Rejuvenation – first step

Hydrafacial First Step

What’s The First Step?

The first step in getting a Hydrafacial in Los Angeles and Pasadena is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Li or one of our aestheticians at Premier Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa so that they can discuss your medical history, aesthetic goals, and medications. Further, they can examine your face and recommend the best facial and product line for your particular case.

If you’d like to move forward with this treatment, we can perform your Hydrafacial immediately after your consultation. If you’d like to reschedule for another day for any reason, our Patient Coordinator will then help you with scheduling your appointment.

What to Expect on the Day of a Hydrafacial Treatment

When it is time for your treatment, our friendly team will first greet you and make you comfortable. Once you’re settled, we will begin with the easy 3-step treatment.

The first step is to give your skin a proper cleanse using a lactic acid-based serum that gently softens the surface oils and impurities to effortlessly lift them away with the patented vortex suction. Then, a glycol preparation is applied that utilizes alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) to dissolve dead skin cells and beta hydroxy acid (BHA) to penetrate the pores and dislodge trapped debris.

Next, is to extract the impurities and give your skin a boost of hydration. Hydrafacial is great because it doesn’t require any harsh exfoliation methods like other treatments because it uses hydra dermabrasion to delicately vacuum away the impurities and dead skin, leaving behind a refreshed canvas. If you’re uncomfortable for any reason, the suction levels can be adjusted for a more enjoyable experience. Booster serums can also be combined with your treatment to target specific skin concerns.

The final step is to fuse and protect your skin with the infusion of antioxidants and peptides that saturate your skin to promote vitality and protection against environmental stressors.

Most Hydrafacial treatments will take about 45 minutes to an hour.

Hydrafacial Recovery

Since a Facial is a non-invasive procedure, there is no recovery downtime, however, you may experience some mild redness or flushing, which typically subsides within a few hours. Some individuals may also notice a slight tightness or dryness in the skin, which can be alleviated with the application of a hydrating moisturizer. 

It is essential to avoid direct sun exposure and harsh skincare products for the first 24 to 48 hours following your treatment to allow your skin to heal and regenerate properly. Additionally, we recommend wearing sunscreen with at least SPF 30 daily to protect your skin from UV damage and maintain the results of your treatment.

To keep your face looking beautiful after your Hydrafacial, these tips can help prolong your results and keep you looking your best:

  • Stop any Accutane treatments six months before your treatment
  • Stop using Retin-A and other prescribed medications 48 hours before your treatment
  • Discontinue over-the-counter acne topicals 48 hours pre-treatment
  • Avoid BOTOX injections two weeks before your treatment. BOTOX is completely safe to use immediately after your treatment.
  • Avoid chemical peels two weeks leading up to your treatment
  • Avoid exfoliating skin treatments
  • Limit sun exposure and avoid sunburn
  • Don’t wax or use hair removal cream on the area of treatment

Usually, a Hydrafacial is recommended every 4-6 weeks. We also recommend following a good skincare routine following your facial to get the most out of your treatment and prolong the results.
