It seems like everything you see at the drugstore promises to produce a skin care miracle. Simply by using this cream or that serum, you can shed 10 years off your appearance in no time. Lifestyle magazines and Snapchat videos tell you how to make “do-it-yourself” skin care masks to exfoliate and hydrate your skin. But, none of these quick fixes can penetrate the epidermis (top layer of your skin) to counteract aging and unclog pores without damaging the skin.
Healthy skin can make you appear youthful, and that’s something that only medical grade facials and peels can provide. Dr. Lensink, with the help of his wife and RN, Maurene, went through a series of reviews using various methods of facial products and tools until they finally found HydraFacial MD®. With HydraFacial MD®, you can get a more youthful look in 20 minutes that lasts all month long without discomfort, recovery or high costs.
HydraFacial MD®—A Hydrating and Nourishing Facial
While microdermabrasion is a dry method of resurfacing the skin, HydraFacial MD® is a wet, hydrating facial that gives back to the skin in more ways than one. The HydraFacial MD® is a four-part system, employing a series of treatment tanks that connect to a small hand-piece using a built-in vortex technology. Instead of following the same methods of traditional microdermabrasion or diamond facials, the HydraFacial continually sprays a vortex of cleansing, exfoliating and nutrient-infusing serums into your skin. This comfortable, effective skin treatment is now available at Dr. Lensink’s office.
What it Treats
Everyone has a different skin care issue or condition they wish to improve. This facial, like every treatment Dr. Lensink provides, is customized to your condition; we can even change the way in which it’s applied after your consultation. Traditionally, these facials focus on the upper, mid and lower portions of the face only, but HydraFacial can address dryness in the lips and décolleté as well.
Wrinkles are also an unwanted part of the aging process, and in order to shed a few years, we’ll need to focus on preventing them from appearing in the first place. Luckily, the HydraFacial offers a specific serum for preventing fine lines and wrinkles. We can further customize this facial for any highly pigmented areas of the face, to create a smoother, clearer complexion overall.
HydraFacial MD® treats the skin by:
- Removing dead and dry skin cells
- Removing blackheads and whiteheads
- Reducing redness and inflammation
- Improving dryness
- Reducing wrinkles and folds
- Reducing dryness and rough skin in your lips
- Softening and smoothing uneven skin
- Decreasing pigmentation
- Brightening a dull skin tone
- Enhancing all skin rejuvenation methods
How It Works
Before we apply the first step of exfoliation, a gel is smoothed over the skin to allow the handpiece to move freely with a wet base. We begin the HydraFacial by cleansing the skin, freeing the surface from all makeup, excess oils and layers of dead skin blocking the pores.
A light salicylic and glycolic acid are the second application provided to resurface unhealthy and dull skin and to open up the pores. Unlike other salicylic and glycolic acid peels, the HydraFacial won’t leave your skin feeling raw or irritated. This step is the most effective extraction we have experienced: you can actually see what comes out of your pores as it is collected in a clear extraction tube. Dr. Lensink will show you these results after your procedure so you know you’re your over-the-counter products have been missing.
Lastly, once your skin is clear of all the particles causing breakouts and blockages, we will add a nutrient-infused serum composed of peptides, antioxidants, and vitamins. Everything in this skin cocktail is designed to rebuild collagen and elastin while reducing the appearance of wrinkles for a time. Now your skin is refreshed and ready for the right products that will make a real difference.
