HydraFacial MD® in Bloomington, IL
Facials that are more aggressive, with forced exfoliation, deep cleansing, and pore clearing, can leave your face red and sensitive. But at Twin City Plastic Surgery, you can have all of those benefits without the discomfort and recovery.
It’s called HydraFacial MD® and it delivers amazing results in just 30 minutes.
What is HydraFacial MD®?
HydraFacial MD® is hydradermabrasion. You’ve probably never heard that term. It combines deep cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration, and anti-oxidant delivery simultaneously in a three-step process. The treatment delivers some amazing improvements in your skin, all in a relaxing, painless half hour.
Who is a good candidate for a HydraFacial?
Laser skin resurfacing and chemical peels can cause hyperpigmentation issues with certain skin tones. But HydraFacial MD® is suitable for all skin types, including thinning, aging skin and dry or oily skin. Even if you have sensitive skin that erupts after a typical facial extraction session, it won’t overreact to a HydraFacial. Plus, once the exfoliation and extraction is complete, HydraFacial delivers different serums into your skin that target your specific skin type and specific skin problems.
These are skincare problems we target at Twin City Plastic Surgery with HydraFacial MD®:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Elasticity and firmness
- Uneven tone
- Brown spots
- Oily, congested skin
- Enlarged pores
Why is a HydraFacial MD so good for my skin?
Your face loves our HydraFacial MD® treatments because they not only resurface the skin to provide cleansing, exfoliation, and extraction, but at the same time they bathe the newly revealed skin with serums of hyaluronic acid, peptides, and hyaluronic acids.
How is a HydraFacial done?
At Twin City Plastic Surgery, our HydraFacial MD® treatment is a four-step process that cleanses, evenly exfoliates, and extracts impurities and dead skin cells while at the same time replenishing vital nutrients including antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid. The treatment is delivered through a proprietary wand that combines a gentle rotating brush with suction pressure. This takes the place of the crystals sprayed on with microdermabrasion or manually applied chemicals in a peel. HydraFacial MD® gently vacuums out your pores, while pushing in skin-improving serums.
This is what happens in your 30-minute HydraFacial at Twin City:
- Step 1 — Vortex-Exfoliation
We attach the first head that uses Activ-4 serum and suction to remove surface dead skin cells and open and clear pores. This uncovers the brighter, healthier skin beneath.
- Step 2 — Vortex-Peel
In step two, through the wand we apply Glysal serum, which consists of a mixture of glycolic and salicylic acids, the ingredients used for light peels. But this peel won’t have the usual post-peel scaling.
- Step 3 — Vortex-Extraction
In step three, the wand applies patented, painless vortex-suction that cleans out pores with the help of Beta-HD serum.
- Step 4 — Vortex-Fusion
Now that your skin is thoroughly cleaned and exfoliated, in step four we apply one of four Antiox+ serums (see below) through the wand. This serum application is the final step of the HydraFacial and replenishes your skin with antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid.
Our serums are tailored to your specific skincare needs
An awesome feature of the HydraFacial MD® is that it can be varied depending on your specific skin type. After cleaning and exfoliation, the HydraFacial MD® procedure infuses various serums to replenish your skin. We offer four different serums, depending on your unique skin needs.
- Brightalive Booster Serum — Designed to brighten skin tone and lessen the appearance of discoloration.
- Growth Factor Boost — Contains naturally occurring proteins specifically designed to restore skin health, which helps diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Dermabuilder Boost — Designed to effectively address fine lines, skin tone evenness, and texture.
- Britenol Boost — Specially formulated to target dark spots and sun-damaged areas.
Is the HydraFacial painful and is there any downtime?
If you’ve had extractions done with a facial, you may now recall visions of medieval torture. Plus, those extractions often leave the skin red and sensitive for a day or so. Other exfoliation procedures can leave the skin dry and sensitive.
With HydraFacial MD®, there is none of that. The procedure is relaxing and painless. And there isn’t any recovery time. The HydraFacial is completely non-invasive.
What kind of results will I see from a HydraFacial at Twin City?
The HydraFacial delivers vastly improved hydration, while helping to eliminate or lessen the appearance of fine lines, hyperpigmentation, oil and congestion, and even creases in the nasolabial folds. Despite involving a light chemical peel and pore extraction, the procedure has no pain — it actually is a pleasant spa-like experience — and doesn’t have the usual redness and irritation that follows most peels/exfoliations.
How many HydraFacials will I need?
As you would expect, the duration of your skin improvement is variable by your skin type, etc. Regardless, your clearer pores, improved hydration, and the effects from your anti-oxidant serums endure. You’ll see visible improvement in your skin after just a single HydraFacial MD® treatment, but to continue keeping your skin looking its best, we recommend monthly HydraFacials.
