Catch the Last Wave of Summer- Hydrafacial MD!
By Chrissy Thomas RN, BSN

Over time, the elements that our skin is exposed to will take its toll.  Stress, pollution, toxins and sunlight will leave their mark. 

Aboutface Hydra

These elements are known as free radicals, and they are responsible for skin damage and aging.  Free radicals are responsible for destroying the chemical makeup of our skin cells and this prevents them from functioning properly, causing the skin to deteriorate.

 As professional skin caretakers, we teach exfoliation methods for removing dead skin cells and exposing fresh healthy skin.  But there is more to caring for skin than just exfoliation.  Healing the tissues and providing protection is just as, if not more, important. Antioxidants are the main weapon to treat free radical damage.  Antioxidants are found in a variety of forms and will work to neutralize free radicals to restore and protect the skin from further damage.  This is why we are so excited to offer a special on the HydraFacial MD Treatment at About Face Skin Care this month. 

The HydraFacial MD treatment is known as a breakthrough in aesthetic technology.  The name comes from the root word “hydrate”, which means, “to cause to take up moisture”.  It is this moisturizing property that separates  HydraFacial MD from all other skin resurfacing procedures.  The treatment removes dead skin cells and extracts impurities while simultaneously bathing the new skin with cleansing, hydrating and moisturizing serums.  This procedure is soothing, refreshing, non-irritating and immediately effective.  Irritation and inflammation can actually increase the signs of aging making the HydraFacial MD a superior form of exfoliation.  

The treatment, which takes about 30 to 40 minutes, requires no downtime.  The sensation is anywhere from a cool paintbrush moving across the skin to a suction feeling.  You may put makeup on immediately after the treatment and resume normal activities.  The treatment is beneficial for sun damage, brown spots, fine lines and wrinkles, oily skin and acne and is designed for all skin types.  Even the most sensitive skin easily tolerates the HydraFacial MD treatment.  You skin care provider will choose specific treatment serums and customize the procedure for your unique skin conditions and needs.  Many people report seeing visible skin refinement and an even and more radiant skin tone after just one treatment.  It is recommended to have one HydraFacial MD treatment per month to improve skin condition, or you may choose to do several treatments more frequently to drastically improve skin appearance. It is a personal favorite among the About Face staff because it provides an immediate GLOW!
