Hydrofacial with High Frequency
Hydrofacials are the latest buzz in skincare. A hydrofacial is a powerful, non-invasive skin resurfacing treatment. It combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration and antioxidant protection that removes dead skin cells and impurities, while simultaneously infusing moisturizing serums into the skin. Pure Skin Hydrofacials combine the power of High Frequency (HF) to boost collagen production, minimize pores and fine lines. HF is included in all hydrofacial protocols.
A Hydrafacial with HF improves the appearance of:
Oily, acne-prone skin
Uneven skin tone
Fine lines and wrinkles
Enlarged and clogged pores
Research on Efficacy of Hydrofacials and High Frequency Clinical research with randomized controlled trials have shown Hydrofacials increase epidermal thickness, collagen hyalinization, and fibroblast density. Fine lines, pore size, and hyperpigmentation were decreased following treatment. citation: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm. nih.gov/19146604/ Clinical trials with patients receving 4 Sessions of high frequency showed collagen volume increase from 9.0% before therapy to 25.9% at 3 months after therapy. In this study, multi-pass and low-energy high frequency treatment caused the most apparent collagen contraction. The use of HF therapy for aging skin is effective in inducing collagen regeneration. One of the underlying mechanisms is encouragement of the expression of transforming growth factor β,34 which can promote the growth of dermal collagen and stimulate tissue repair. citation: https://onlinelibrary.wiley. com/doi/abs/10.1111/dth. 12195 Multimodality treatment combined with high frequency energy with optical energy, including IPL, has remarkable efficacy for improving erythema, telangiectasis (broken capillaries), and skin texture. citation: https://link.springer.com/ article/10.1007/s10103-017-2207-9
What are the steps of a Hydrofacial? 1. Cleanse and Peel The skin is thoroughly cleansed with Vitamin Veil Hydrating Oil and Lipid Replacing Cleanser. A Lactic Acid Peel gently exfoliates and hydrates skin. This peel has no downtime or flaking. 2. Infuse and Protect The hydrofacial tip will create a gentle suction that extracts and exfoliates while simultaneously infusing booster serums deeply into the skin. 3. Non-Invasive Radiofrequency RF is applied, which increases microcirculation and stimulates collagen production.
What are the benefits of a Hydrofacial? 1. Suitable For All Skin Types Whether your skin is oily and acne-prone, dry and flaky, or you have combination skin, you will benefit from a hydrofacial treatment. Even those with sensitive skin can safely enjoy multiple sessions! 2. Gentle Despite the fact that a hydrofacial involves both exfoliation and extraction, it is painless and non-irritating to the skin. Since it delivers hydrating serums, clients are left with a smooth, radiant, healthy glow. Some patients liken the sensation of getting a hydrofacial to a light face massage. 3. Zero Downtime No downtime required after the treatment. The improvement in the appearance of skin texture can be noticed immediately, so patients do not need to recover or wait for redness to disappear. You can put makeup on and resume your normal activities immediately after treatment. 4. Can Be Paired With Other Treatments HydroFacials are non-invasive, meaning that clients can receive other skincare treatments in conjunction with a hydrofacial. IPL or a dermaplane make a perfect pairing. 5. Customizable Your esthetician can tailor your hydrofacial treatment to your unique skin needs. Clients can choose the booster to meet their goals- Vitamin C (brightening), Peptide (anti-aging), Salicylic (clarifying) or Hyaluronic Acid (hydration).
What is High Frequency Therapy? High Frequency Therapy (HF) is a non-invasive aesthetic procedure that uses a high-frequency alternating current to heat tissue in the dermis of the skin in a controlled and selective way to increase collagen, which consequently decreases skin laxity and photoaging. This thermal treatment is so efficacious because it causes changes in collagen structure and also triggers neocollagenesis, or the production of new collagen fibers, in the dermal layers. As we get older, our bodies produce less and less collagen. This is why our skin becomes thinner and looser with age. Collagen is an essential protein for the skin and is the driving force behind skin becoming firmer, smoother, thicker, and more youthful. High frequency addresses signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles by inducing tissue remodeling and replenishing depleted collagen. The time for new cell turnover is 28 days, so high frequency treatments can be repeated regularly to achieve cumulative effects. This non-invasive treatment has no downtime, pain, or discomfort.
What are the benefits of High Frequency Therapy? -Strengthens collagen proteins and encourages the production of new collagen and elastin formation -Tightens and firms facial skin -Decreases depth of wrinkles -Encourages elastin production -Safe for all kinds of skin
What is the aftercare? The active ingredients used in our hydrofacials are potent yet gentle enough to allow for little to no downtime post treatment, which means you can continue your day without any major changes. That being said, some redness is common during and immediately after treatment but dissipates within minutes or the hour depending on the individual. -Refrain from washing your face for a few hours to ensure thorough product absorption & longer-lasting results. -Avoid using any beauty products that contain exfoliating acids such as glycolic and salicylic, retinoids, benzoyl peroxide, scrubs and cleansing brushes for at least 48 hours. These can cause irritation, sensitivity and can strip the barrier of the skin. Think gentle and hydrating! -Wait at least 7-10 days for another facial treatment to give enough time for your skin to acclimate and regenerate. -Avoid waxing or other hair removal treatments. -Take extra care with sun exposure for the days following your hydroFacial. With any facial procedure your potential for sun sensitivity is slightly elevated for a few days after. Wear sunscreen daily and reapply every 2 hours during prolonged exposure. -Skip the workout and relax! The excessive heat and sweat post-treatment can cause irritation and inhibit your best result.
How many treatments are needed to see results? One treatment per month is recommended for improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne and oily skin. It may take about 6-8 treatments for the best outcome. Results vary depending on skin type, hair type, contrast, age etc...
