Facials are preventative maintenance treatments for the skin as they can help patients address skin concerns while promoting hydration, cellular turnover, and optimal skin health. However, all facials are not created equal, and there is one that sets itself apart from the rest, and you can experience it here at Knox Wellness Experience in Knoxville, TN. HydraFacial® is an anti-aging, skin, perfecting, three-step facial that can transform your skin in as little as 30 minutes.
What Is HydraFacial®?
HydraFacial® is a popular, customizable, skin-perfecting facial that is safe for all skin types. Unlike most facials, which require that the esthetician manually cleanses, exfoliates, and performs extractions, this treatment relies on a device equipped with patented Vortex-Fusion® technology.
The esthetician uses the device’s hand-held wand during treatments to perform all three steps, including cleansing and exfoliating the skin, extracting impurities from the pores, and delivering hydrating, anti-aging, and nourishing serums deep into the skin to protect the newly exposed layer.
The Treatment Benefits
HydraFacial® has grown in popularity because not only is it effective, but it also delivers skin-transforming results. We can adjust it to meet the needs of each patient. It is an effective treatment option for all skin concerns, including acne-prone skin, dry skin, sensitive skin, aging skin, and even normal skin. Some other treatment benefits include:
- Treatments are quick and take 30 minutes from start to finish
- Results are immediate
- Treatment results build on consequent treatments
- Treatments are customizable based on each patient’s concerns
- Almost everyone is a treatment candidate
What It Treats
HydraFacial® is safe for all skin types, even those with sensitive skin. It’s completely customizable and can accomplish different goals during each session. It can treat and improve pigmentation issues, including hyperpigmentation, brown spots, age spots, and melasma.
Not only that, but it can help clear and balance oily and congested skin, smooth fine lines and wrinkles, shrink pore size, and improve overall skin hydration. It will also improve skin texture and tone and help patients with good skin achieve even better skin.
A Three-Step Treatment Process
This unique treatment process follows a three-step protocol. During the first step, we use the device to deeply cleanse the skin and then exfoliate the dead skin cells that are contributing to a dull complexion. By removing dead skin cells and buildup, we uncover a younger and healthier layer of skin.
The second step focuses on extractions, and we use the device to painlessly suction impurities from the pores. The final step focuses on hydration and protection as we use customized serums with anti-aging and moisturizing ingredients to hydrate, nourish, and protect the skin.
The Signature HydraFacial® is the original treatment that takes 30 minutes from start to finish and is customized to each patient’s needs. Once we determine your skin concerns, we can select the right serums to add to your treatment, so you can achieve the best results.
The Deluxe option is a step up from the Signature, and it includes all the customized aspects of the Signature treatment and special add-ons to enhance treatment results. Patients who select the Deluxe treatment will enjoy the addition of personalized boosters that can target the most stubborn skin concerns.
The treatment concludes with LED light therapy that uses red and blue LED light to reduce inflammation, increase collagen production, and promote skin clarity by destroying acne-causing bacteria within the pores.
The Platinum treatment is the most extensive version of this facial. It begins with the standard three-step process of cleansing and exfoliating, extractions, and deep hydration.
Then, we apply personalized booster serums to the skin based on your needs, use LED light therapy to address additional skin concerns and complete the treatment with lymphatic drainage to remove excess toxins and fluids from beneath the skin’s surface and to naturally sculpt, define, and contour the face.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
You will see results after one treatment, but the best results come from making this treatment a staple in your skincare routine. Once we evaluate your skin and discuss what issues you want to treat, we can recommend the best treatment schedule, so you know how often to schedule treatments for the most benefit.
When Will I See the Results?
You can expect healthier, brighter skin immediately following your treatment, and the results will continue to improve with every treatment you schedule.
How Long Will My Results Last?
Your results will last approximately as long as it takes for the skin to go through a normal cycle. Dead skin cells will build up after approximately 30 days, preventing you from maintaining glowing skin. For that reason, we recommend monthly treatments to address skin imperfections while promoting regular deep cleansing and exfoliation for maximum results.
Can I Schedule My Treatment Before a Special Event?
Unlike many facials that can cause breakouts and often adverse reactions after treatment, HydraFacial® will give you better skin in just 30 minutes. Patients can schedule treatment before a special event to achieve a bright, glowing complexion.
Is There Downtime?
There’s no downtime after this facial. You can return to work or resume your normal daily activities as soon as it’s over. You can even apply makeup immediately following the treatment. We recommend that patients use quality sunscreen and avoid excess sun exposure to protect the newly exfoliated layer of skin while avoiding extreme heat after the treatment for the best results.
Experience the Skin-Transforming Facial
Whether you’ve never experienced a facial before or you have but haven’t been happy with your results, we want to introduce you to a facial that will transform your skin in just one treatment.
