Hydrofacial

Hydrofacial is the latest in skincare as an alternative to microdermabrasion without the use of crystals or diamond tips to abrade the skin. Instead, it combines the natural benefits of oxygen and water to shoot a pressurized stream of solution onto the skin. The high velocity of this procedure effectively removes dead skin cells at first contact, exfoliating and soothing the skin at the same time. Hydrofacial hydrates, cleans, and revitalizes skin while supporting healthy blood circulation. Better circulation, in turn, promotes the production of collagen and elastin fibers that tighten the skin and promote a youthful look. Now, you can receive all the benefits of microdermabrasion without any of the irritable side effects!

Benefits:

  • Benefits sensitive skin that cannot undergo other forms of microdermabrasion

  • Decreases visibility of scarring and dark shadows

  • Improves blood circulation

  • Supports collagen and elastin production

  • Tightens skin

  • Leaves skin smooth and glowing

  • Uses all-natural elements and minerals
