Although skin is our body’s largest organ, it can be quite troublesome sometimes, especially the skin on the face. Oily skin is perhaps one of the most difficult and most common facial skin challenges because pores that produce too much oil can often cause unsightly acne, even in adults. At-home treatments for oily skin often use harsh chemicals that can be too drying and typically only produce marginal results.
The HydraFacial is a new type of facial care technology designed to treat a myriad of skin problems gently and effectively, including oily skin, with little discomfort and no downtime. In fact, patients can resume normal activities directly after a HydraFacial treatment and results are often noticeable right away.
How Does HydraFacial Work for Oily Skin?
The HydraFacial uses unique vortex exfoliation technology to remove dead skin cells and reveal healthy skin. A proprietary formula containing glycolic and salicylic acids is administered, which elicits similar results to a chemical peel without scaling. Congested pores are then cleansed with vortex extraction, which is a painless but incredibly effective way to deep clean clogged pores on the face. A serum containing skin protectants and antioxidants leaves the face feeling fresh and clean.
Does a HydraFacial Treatment Hurt?
The HydraFacial treatment is designed to be comfortable and cause very little irritation. The gentle massaging and suctioning techniques are relaxing, and while very sensitive skin may be mildly irritated by the serums used during the treatment, any discomfort typically resolves quickly.
What Types of Acne Can HydraFacial Treat?
Because the HydraFacial can be used for all skin types, it can help reduce the appearance of many different types of acne. Blackheads and whiteheads are easily removed with the unique vortex technology, and even deep, cystic acne can be successfully treated with HydraFacial versus drying over-the-counter creams and potentially harmful medications.
Depending on the patient’s skin type, more than one HydraFacial session may be necessary in order to reach the desired appearance. While most patients see immediate results, troublesome oily skin may require multiple treatments to elicit the best possible outcome.
