Recently, there has been a huge movement for self-care and this newfound awareness is also a wonderful way to treat yourself. Vein & Laser Institute is currently offering a new non-invasive treatment called the HydraFacial. One of the biggest perks of the HydraFacial is that it provides instant results for all skin types with no downtime. The treatment works to remove dead skin cells and extracts impurities while simultaneously delivering the skin with cleansing, hydrating and moisturizing serums.
Breaking it down, the HydraFacial device uses three actions that contribute to the resurfacing of the skin; physical exfoliation from water pressure and a textured tip, chemical exfoliation from acids such as glycolic and salicylic, and suction to lift dead skin cells off the surface.
The technology used during a HydraFacial cleanses, extracts, and hydrates skin while infusing highly effective serums tailored to each patients’ specific skin needs. The unique process helps improve the appearance of several skin concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, skin firmness, texture, and pore congestion. Suitable for all skin types, this rejuvenating treatment is gentle, non-invasive, and effective immediately.
A basic treatment starts with a water-based solution being blasted onto the skin to break up the topmost layer of dead skin cells. Using the spiral suction tip of the HydraFacial device, the dead skin cells and surface debris are lifted away, providing a gentler method of extraction.
Next, a chemical peel solution is delivered in the same way, furthering exfoliation. The final steps involve the same pressurized delivery of treatment serums that are best for the individual client. Because all steps are delivered in a hydrating, water-based solution, the HydraFacial provides an impressive amount of plumping hydration to the skin when compared to a more traditional microdermabrasion treatment. After a HydraFacial treatment, you will notice immediate results. Skin will feel smoother, softer, and more hydrated as a result of the exfoliating acids and hydrating ingredients used. You may also notice a slight reduction in puffiness due to the lymphatic drainage. The use of nutrient-rich serums may also temporarily plump up fine lines and wrinkles, lessening their appearance.
At Vein & Laser, different levels of HydraFacial treatments are available from the basics (cleanse, exfoliate, extract, and hydrate), to a Platinum option which also includes Lymphatic drainage, a customized mask, customized booster serum, and LED Light Therapy.
Vein & Laser also offers PERK Lip or Eye treatments, which can be done alone or typically at the end of a HydraFacial treatment. The PERK Lip service plumps, exfoliates, and locks in moisture and the PERK Eye service reduces dark circles and puffiness to brighten and awaken the delicate eye area.
HydraFacials and PERK Lip or Eye treatments are great to do before a big event or vacation and double as wonderful gift ideas. Vein & Laser Institute offers gift certificates, which are a great option around the holidays.
Next month, Vein & Laser Institute will be hosting a HydraFacial Signature event on Wednesday, Oct. 2 at the Valparaiso office and Friday, Oct. 4 at the Munster office for anyone who has not had a HydraFacial with the Institute before.
At the event, there will also be HydraFacial Membership program discounts, raffles, skincare goody bags, Buy & Bank Dysport specials, and discounted skincare products. There is a $25 reservation fee to book a spot, so be sure to RSVP soon at (219) 736-8118.
