Hydrafacial for Older Adults: 5 Ways this Super-Facial Rejuvenates Skin

We get it: the models promoting the latest, greatest skin therapy tend to be about 18 years old. They don’t even need professional skin treatment! 

Our typical patient isn’t 18. He or she is usually over 40 and looking to recapture their skin’s youthful vibrancy. We’ve had some great results with the HydraFacial and want to explain specifically how it rejuvenates older skin. 

The HydraFacial’s magic lies in its multi-functionality. First, it gently cleanses and peels, uncovering a new layer of fresh skin. With that step complete, it goes into an extraction phase to remove debris from your pores using the gentle movement of fluid and suction. Finally, it saturates the skin with hydrating serums that include antioxidants and peptides that give you a stunning glow. This three-step process diminishes dark spots and wrinkles, boosts elasticity and firmness and shrinks enlarged pores. 

We’d be happy to answer your questions and offer personalized advice. Contact the office of Michael A. Epstein, MD, FACS in Northbrook, IL, 847-205-1680.

1.Fades Fine Lines and Wrinkles—Without Acid or Grit 

Similar to an acidic chemical peel, HydraFacial lifts and removes dead skin cells, diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Gritty dermabrasions blast them away. A HydraFacial, however, doesn’t use acids or grit to achieve results. Through its unique “vortex-fusion” technology, a spiral suctioning of water, it gently accomplishes the same outcome without physically abrading the skin. No skin irritation. No peeling. Wrinkles and tiny lines have simply eased away.

2. Lightens Dark Spots & Patches—Without Lasers

Troubled by sunspots, age spots, or dark patches on the skin? There’s no need to turn to photofacial (laser) treatments, which may produce temporary swelling or redness. HydraFacial’s use of spiraling, pulsating water gets beneath the skin surface to clean impurities, gently exfoliating and resurfacing. This water power also stimulates blood flow to the surface of the skin, enhancing the skin’s natural collagen production and cellular turnover.

3. Provides Therapy for Your Pores

Pores trap and hold dirt, oil, and bacteria, which can increasingly cause discoloration, blemishes, and even premature wrinkles. HydraFacial’s unique spiral suction slides water beneath the skin’s surface and lifts dirt and impurities out of your pores, evening the skin tone and leaving you with a vibrant, healthy glow. 

Sometimes hidden dirt beneath the skin’s surface enlarges pores, giving the skin a mottled and uneven look. By removing this trapped dirt and the impurities from your pores, HydraFacial brightens your skin, improving its health. Free of debris, pores shrink back to normal size. You’ll love your skin’s new smoother surface.

4. Hydrates for Maximum Radiance

The whorling suction involved in HydraFacial’s Vortex Fusion technology does something that other treatments can’t do. It hydrates your skin directly. Custom-tailored serums saturate the skin’s surface with antioxidants, peptides, and intense moisturizers that quench and nourish your skin, leaving it glowing, healthy, and radiant.

5. Here’s What Hydrafacial Won’t Do: Slow You Down

HydraFacials are popular with people who have a special reunion, a wedding, or a red carpet event. With many items on to-do lists, downtime recuperating from a skin resurfacing treatment is just too inconvenient. HydraFacials rejuvenate your complexion gently and non-invasively and are effective immediately, so you can arrive with smooth, supple, glowing skin.

Today, many medical and spa treatments promote smooth, healthy skin, but few treatments are as gentle and effective as the HydraFacial. Certain treatments target one type of skin problem, while HydraFacials target almost all imperfections safely, efficiently, and effectively. 

If you think a HydraFacial would be perfect for you, schedule a consultation with Michael A. Epstein, MD, FACS in Northbrook, IL, 847-205-1680.
