A “facial” can mean a lot of things, but the HydraFacial takes skin care to the next level. It’s no surprise that this proprietary treatment is a favorite at Palo Alto Laser and Skin Care. It exfoliates, cleanses, and hydrates in three consecutive steps so that you can enjoy skin that is fresh, youthful, and glowing. The best part of this facial in Palo Alto is that there’s no downtime! Unlike more aggressive treatments, you’re going to instantly love the skin you’re in—but the results will also keep getting better in the days following your HydraFacial.
A HydraFacial combines the three most important steps of skin care into one 30-minute session. Properly cleansing the skin is part of what prepares the body’s biggest organ for medical-grade skin care topical products. Professional exfoliation by an esthetician trained by Zuzana Likar takes this prep work one step further. Gentle exfoliation is a must to remove surface debris and cleanse the pores. Finally, custom-selected medical-grade skin care products are applied to the skin. These products include moisturizers as well as serums designed to tackle specific concerns ranging from hyperpigmentation to rosacea or lines and wrinkles.
Why Three Steps for HydraFacial?
It’s important to take care of your skin at home, and having your own professional-grade products is essential. However, it’s nearly impossible for anyone to undertake this three-step approach properly by themselves. The HydraFacial at Palo Alto is a unique system that uses innovative technology to cleanse and exfoliate safely at a level simply not available at home. You’ll instantly notice the difference in cleanliness and freshness during steps one and two. The skin care product segment of a HydraFacial also allows clients to try out products without purchasing them.
Medical-grade skin care products are incomparable to even the most expensive products found in boutiques. When lotions, creams, and serums are medical-grade, they are legally allowed to feature active ingredients at higher concentration levels. Still, it is understandable that you might not want to purchase any new skin care product without testing it out first. A HydraFacial is a perfect way to do this without committing to an entire tube or bottle.
The Ultimate Monthly Facial Treat
Everyone falls in love with the HydraFacial during their first session—and you can keep those results by opting for monthly sessions. This is not a requirement, but a HydraFacial once per month is a common “treat” for a number of clients. It keeps skin looking revitalized and you can maintain that unique HydraFacial glow with an appointment every four weeks. However, there are other clients who opt for HydraFacials strictly before important events. It’s a popular pick right before weddings, milestone birthdays, and other important occasions. HydraFacials can also be a fantastic option for date night.
What to Expect with a HydraFacial
HydraFacial sessions pack a big punch in just half an hour. Since there is no prep needed or downtime, a HydraFacial can easily fit into anyone’s lunch hour. The three steps are broken down into parts that last about 10 minutes each, and you can sit back and relax as you feel your skin get softer and more supple. Enjoy an instant glow immediately after your treatment, and there is no need to wait before applying makeup or other products (like sunscreen).
Non-invasive and uber-gentle, a Palo Alto facial is for everyone. Both men and women of all ages adore this treatment because it is fully individualized for any need. Your skin changes throughout the years and seasons, so there’s a good chance that each of your HydraFacial sessions will be unlike the other. We’ll work with you to determine the best medical-grade skin care products for your HydraFacial appointment, whether you want to take on eczema, crow’s feet, or poor skin tone and texture. If you discover a skin care product you love, we have all of the leading medical-grade products available for purchase in our store—but that is not a requirement.
