Numerous elements can take their toll on your skin – some, like sun exposure, you can control to an extent. Others, such as genetics and the natural passage of time, will run their course no matter what you do. If those telltale signs are starting to creep up on you, Dr. Lickstein has the solution. HydraFacial MD is a proprietary, multi-step treatment that offers superior results to other facials with the same comfort and lack of downtime you have come to expect from a medical-grade treatment. Even if you haven’t yet experienced aging symptoms, HydraFacial MD is a way to refresh the complexion and minimize the appearance of minor imperfections for an enhanced complexion and renewed confidence in your appearance.
What is the HydraFacial?
HydraFacial MD is a professional treatment designed to restore health and vitality to the complexion. In a single, 30-minute appointment, we can cleanse and exfoliate the skin’s surface, extract impurities and infuse needed nutrients into the dermal layers to produce noticeable long-lasting results. The treatment is easily customized to the unique needs of each of our patients, ensuring you get the precise boost you need to create a healthier, more beautiful appearance.
Dr. Lickstein and his staff offer the HydraFacial to their Florida patients at their Palm Beach Gardens location. Whether you are looking for a way to turn back the clock, reduce minor imperfections or achieve a healthy glow, this treatment may be the right option for you.
What can it Treat?
HydraFacial MD is a versatile procedure that can address a variety of concerns in a single treatment session. Some of the specific issues treated with this facial include:
- Early signs of aging, including fine lines and wrinkles
- A tired, dull complexion
- Hyperpigmentation and other pigmentation irregularities
- Symptoms of rosacea, including redness and inflammation
- Uneven skin texture and tone
- Shallow scarring, such as that left behind after acne or chicken pox
- Symptoms of acne breakouts, including blackheads, whiteheads and small pimples
When you schedule your initial consultation with Dr. Lickstein, he will make a careful assessment of your concerns, needs and desired results to determine whether HydraFacial MD is the right treatment option for you.
Multiple Steps, One Amazing Result
The secret to the HydraFacial’s success is an innovative system known as 4-in-1 Vortex Technology. Using a single unit and a variety of handpieces, Dr. Lickstein and his staff provide four steps to more radiant skin. The four stages of this procedure include:
Step One: Cleansing and Exfoliation
Vortex exfoliation administers deep cleansing to the skin, removing dead, dry skin cells on the surface to reveal a glowing complexion underneath. The process, known as hydradermabrasion, is similar to microdermabrasion but uses water instead of a diamond-tipped tool to provide the exfoliation benefits.
Step Two: Additional Exfoliation Using a Chemical Peel
Once the cleaning process is completed, a Vortex peel is applied. This combination of salicylic and glycolic acid is gentle enough for even sensitive skin types but sufficiently potent in removing deeper dirt from inside the dermal layers as well as pore-clogging sebum. Elimination of the sebum at this level can go far in preventing or minimizing acne breakouts in the future.
Step Three: Extractions
The freshly exfoliated skin is then treated with Vortex extraction to remove stubborn material from clogged pores that was not eliminated during the previous process. An extraction nozzle is attached to the device for this step, which collects the residue into a cup so that you can see the result of this process.
Step Four: Application of Customized Serums
In the final step, hydration and critical nutrients are applied using Vortex infusion that gets the beneficial substances deeper into the dermal layers where they can have the most significant effect. Your choice of serum will depend on your unique skin concerns and desired outcome. Options include:
- BrightAlive Booster Serum contains a skin brightening complex that evens out the skin tone and reduces discoloration for a healthy, radiant glow.
- Growth Factor Boost features ingredients to restore the health of the skin and minimize some of the signs of aging.
- Dermabuild boasts a blend of peptides and other beneficial ingredients to turn back the clock on your appearance and create a more consistent tone and texture to the skin.
- Britenol Boost is a combination of skin brighteners and antioxidants to protect the skin from further damage. The result is reduced brown spots and other signs of sun damage.
The expert team at Lickstein Plastic Surgery will help you select the formulation that will provide you with the best possible results, based on the type of correction you need most. In addition to the four steps included with every HydraFacial, our staff may also incorporate LED light therapy into the treatment to enhance your results further. A red light may be used to curb inflammation and reduce signs of aging, while a blue light is often advised for acne-prone skin to provide additional resistance to breakouts.
Conservative, Convenient and Comfortable
The pampering HydraFacial MD is a quick, painless treatment that usually has you in and out of our office in 45 minutes or less. When your procedure is completed, your skin should have a healthy glow that will continue to improve in the days following your appointment. This conservative approach to skin rejuvenation produces positive results after just one treatment session. However, regular appointments will repair the dermal matrix over time, giving you healthier, more beautiful skin over the long term. Treatments can even slow the aging process, warding off fine lines and wrinkles for much longer than if you did not undergo regular skin treatments.
Patients that undergo the HydraFacial may opt for treatments weekly, bi-weekly or monthly to maintain their positive results indefinitely. Our staff will recommend the best treatment regimen for you based on your precise needs and aesthetic goals.
The HydraFacial is taking the medical-grade facial to the next level, giving our patients a painless way to achieve real skin rejuvenation results. To learn more about this revolutionary treatment, contact Lickstein Plastic Surgery today at 561-571-4000.
