Sunspots appear as brown or gray patches of discolored skin, usually on parts of the body that receive the most sun exposure. Are sunspots a cosmetic issue for you? At Le Reve Skincare & Laser Center in Fort Worth, TX, we can help you remove or minimize the appearance of sunspots with the help of effective aesthetic treatments. When it comes to fading the appearance of skin imperfections, we highly recommend HydraFacial, a cleansing treatment that comes with many benefits.
Top 7 Benefits of a HydraFacial
Hydrating facials are one of our favorite facial spa routines. It’s a non-invasive treatment but highly effective. This unique facial can be used for almost any skin condition and imperfections, including sunspots or uneven skin tone. Less invasive than conventional approaches like chemical peels or laser surface treatment, this spa treatment lets you enjoy refreshed and beautiful skin without any downtime.
1. Reduces the Appearance of Sunspots
Many people think that the only effective treatment for skin damage, age spots, or dark skin patches are photofacials or laser therapies. These options can produce outstanding results, but they also have their drawbacks and side effects. Do you have sensitive skin that requires a gentler but similarly effective treatment? Then you’ll benefit from a hydrating facial spa if your primary concern is to reduce the appearance of sunspots.
Hydrating facial treatments use pressurized water to cleanse and rejuvenate the skin. It energizes your blood vessels while cleaning and erasing skin impurities. A facial spa is a much more gentle treatment option with fewer side effects and no downtime. As a less-invasive alternative to laser therapy, it doesn’t come with any downsides or side effects.
2. Minimizes Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Another benefits of HydraFacial are that it works similarly to a chemical peel. It resurfaces the skin and extracts dead cells and impurities. Both treatments can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by encouraging the growth of newer, healthier skin. However, instead of using strong acids to produce results, hydrating facials use only water to achieve the same effect.
This gentler process allows the treatment to remove wrinkles carefully without causing skin irritation or harsher peeling. Since HydraFacial works similarly to dermabrasion, it can also reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Dead skin cells are removed to make way for the growth of younger, healthier-looking skin.
3. Clears Up Acne and Reduces Breakouts
Anybody can be affected by acne, but the condition is more common among adolescents or those with oily skin. Unfortunately, harsh chemicals to treat acne can do more harm than good when it comes to stripping oil and dirt from the skin. Without the need for harsh washing and peeling, hydrating treatments can achieve the same result. A facial spa can give you your desired results with the added benefit of removing existing sunspots.
Do you also have oily skin, in addition to acne? If so, not only are you more likely to have clogged pores, but you are also more likely to suffer from acne outbreaks more frequently. Thanks to the gentle but powerful suction from hydrating spa treatments, you can exfoliate and extract dirt and oil from the surface of your skin, minimizing a greasy, oily appearance.
4. Works on Most Skin Types
If you have sensitive skin that suffers from a particular condition, you might be hesitant when it comes to trying new options for skin rejuvenation. Instead of selecting a specialized treatment for your specific skin type, you can solve multiple problems with the help of hydrating facial treatments.
It is not damaging to most skin types and does not aggravate most skin problems, so you are likely to be a good candidate for the treatment. The best way to know is to schedule a consultation and let us know about your specific skin conditions, so we can also suggest the most appropriate treatment.
5. Delivers Consistent Results
The outcomes of most skincare treatments rely on the specialist’s skills. They must be trained and skilled with their hands to complete manual extractions effectively. However, a hydrating facial spa is different. A handheld wand performs the treatment itself and does not rely on manual skills.
By using innovative technology, it provides outstanding, reliable results. The experience is consistent as well. It will be just as painless, effective, and convenient every time because the same machine performs the treatment.
6. Has Immediate Outcomes With No Downtime
Traditional facials and peels can leave your skin red and irritated several hours up to a day after the treatment. In contrast, you’ll experience minimal to no side effects with HydraFacial. In fact, you can apply makeup immediately after your treatment and go about your day as usual. The simple treatment makes it a perfect choice for when you’re about to attend large gatherings or galas.
Most people see visible results right after the treatment. These initial results usually last for up to a week. If you’d like to maintain your results and keep your skin hydrated and fresh, you can enjoy a hydrating facial every few weeks.
7. Compatible With Other Treatments
Instead of visiting the dermatologist for many treatments, you can get the same benefits all at once in combination with a HydraFacial. After the facial, you can have other treatments right away, such as a Botox or dermal fillers.
What Can You Expect During the Treatment?
More and more people are choosing hydrating facials are their primary skincare- regimen. It’s no wonder why, as the treatment is practical, non-invasive, safe, and delivers outstanding results. Here are a few things that you can expect if you’re interested in experiencing this one of a kind facial spa.
How It Works
The treatment combines multiple facial therapies in only one session: washing and exfoliating, a gentle peel, vacuum suction extraction, and nourishing through the use of moisturizing serums. The unique method delivers predictable results and is ideal for all skin types. It’s not like conventional facial treatments that provide different results depending on your skin type and problem areas.
One session takes less than an hour. If you’re getting a hydrating facial treatment for the first time, you’ll observe the following phases of the treatment.
Cleansing & Exfoliation
We use the unique HydraFacial wand to cleanse the skin softly and exfoliate it. The first phase of the treatment removes dead skin cells and sebum by opening your pores gently. It has a similar feeling to brushing your skin with the use of a spinning electric toothbrush.
Next, we’ll adjust the handheld device to initiate a soft chemical peel. Contrary to other treatments that can irritate the skin for hours or days, a hydrating facial uses gentle but powerful combinations of cleansing and moisturizing substances. The unique formula is designed to resurface and exfoliate the skin effectively.
Extraction is the third phase of your treatment process. To remove dirt and impurities from your pores, we use a painless vacuum suction. The impurities are collected into a cup and disposed of after the facial.
Finally, we will use the HydraFacial wand to apply signature antioxidants and hydrating serums that deliver nutrients to your skin. These powerful serums help detoxify, rejuvenate, and moisturize your skin. Unlike home remedies and over the counter products, these serums provide superior results that you can feel and experience for yourself right after the facial.
Preparing for the Treatment
We will advise you to avoid using any items that contain Isotretinoin at least six months before your scheduled treatment. You can let us know about the products you use or carefully check the labels for ingredients. Two weeks before your schedule, you’ll need to refrain from any form of laser therapy. Medium or deep chemical peels should also be avoided. It will be best if you have the facial under normal skin conditions.
A Week Before
We might suggest to you a proper skincare routine three to five days before your treatment. We will discuss your objectives during your initial consultation and create a personalized treatment plan for you. We’ll also advise you to refrain from prolonged unprotected exposure to the sun a few days before your treatment.
If you can’t avoid going outside, you may use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a high sun protection factor. Similarly, it would be best to avoid tanning to ensure that your skin is healthy enough for facial treatment during this time.
A Few Days Before
Avoid using over-the-counter acne drugs such as salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide two days before your appointment. You may wax and use epilators if you need to perform some hair removal. Finally, for at least two days before your treatment session, you’ll need to avoid using a topical product that contains tretinoin, such as Retin-A.
A Day Before
If you have facial hair, it’s best to avoid shaving on the day of your treatment. But if you must, make sure that you don’t shave three or four hours from your appointment. We will ask you about your current medications before the treatment to ensure that everything is safe and compatible. Some cleansers can damage your skin, so we will also advise you to use gentler cleansers and friendlier options.
By following these basic precautions, you can get the best out of your treatment and ensure that you only get outstanding results. We’ll guide you through the whole process, so you’ll have nothing to worry about.
Maintaining Your Results
You’ll notice brighter, softer skin right after the treatment. You also should see gradual improvements in your skin over time, especially if your goal is to eliminate sunspots and achieve a more even skin tone. We recommend scheduling repeat treatments every four to six weeks so that you can maintain the best results.
Are You a Good Candidate?
Hydrating facial treatments are a great way to make your skin look healthier, younger, and smoother, regardless of who you are.
