New Year New Skin
“New Year, New Skin” by Joanne Berry
One of my favorite facials is the HydraFacial™. Being a guest educator for the Hydrafacial company and performing the treatments on clients and seeing amazing results, I have recommended it to many people as a superior facial treatment to experience.
It’s a new breakthrough in aesthetic technology. It takes its name from the root word Hydrate; “to cause to take up moisture.” This ability to moisturize the skin separates the HydraFacial™ from all other skin resurfacing procedures. The HydraFacial™ treatment removes dead skin cells and extracts impurities while simultaneously bathing the new skin with cleansing, hydrating and moisturizing serums. The treatment is soothing, refreshing, non-irritating and immediately effective. It can be used on all skin types and I recommend it as a “pre-party” or a “booster facial.”
It’s quick! For immediate results it can take as little as 15 minutes or you can have more of a “spa type” Hydrafacial which can take up to an hour. There is no downtime and your make-up goes on flawlessly afterwards. Results and hydration may last 5 to 7 days or even longer. One treatment per month is recommended for improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hyper pigmentation, oily and congested skin.
I recommend that you try this facial and see how great your skin can really be!
