· What is Hydradermabrasion?
Hydradermabrasion, similar to regular dermabrasion, is a highly amplified method of exfoliation. However, rather than using gritty sand, crystals or diamond, New York Aesthetics, the top medical spa Manhattan Beach has to offer, utilizes the power of water, in addition to adding other natural serums &extracts. This allows the procedure to remove any dirt and debris from within pores, while simultaneously exfoliating the outer layer of dull, dead skin cells.
· The 4-in-1 Vortex
The Hydrafacial MD treatment uses the power of the 4-in-1 Vortex technology, designed to exfoliate & peel the skin, remove any impurities, dirt, & toxins, while also hydrating and treating the skin. Here are the steps to the 4-in-1 Vortex:
o Exfoliation – the specially designed exfoliation tip is run over the treatment area and uses a vacuum-powered stream of a special solution designed to gently remove the outer layer of dull, dead skin cells, as well as any dirt, debris, and excess oils clogging your pores.
o Peel –once the outer layer is exfoliated, the skin is treated with a Glysal serum, that helps to loosen up any excess dirt and debris. In addition, it penetrates into the skin’s inner layers and makes it much easier to remove dirt and oils, including blackheads and acne issues.
o Extraction – a Beta-HD serum which includes salicylic acid is applied to cleanse and treat the skin. Depending on any specific skincare issues you might have, such as wrinkles, or discolorations, other serums can be applied using the hydrafacial tip.
o Fusion – once the pores and skin are clean and clear, using the special hydrafacial tip you are able to infuse the skin with an antioxidant serum known as Antioch-6. This helps to plump and firm the skin and keeps it free from toxins.
