What to Know About The Hydrafacial Treatment

The HYDRAFACIAL treatment at O’Neill Plastic Surgery Aesthetic and Laser Center! If you haven’t had the experience yet, I highly recommend coming in and trying it out for yourself! Here’s what you need to know:

HYDRAFACIAL is the only HYDRA-Dermabrasion treatment for all skin types and tones that cleans, exfoliates, extracts, and provides your skin with quenching hydration and the antioxidant protection it needs. The machine uses a handpiece that has been uniquely designed to deliver this type of 4-in-one treatment. The treatment is focused and very effective with instant and long-lasting results. There is little to no downtime associated with this treatment, however, post-treatment you may experience some irritation and overall redness that will calm down within a few hours.

HYDRAFACIAL Treatment Levels at O’Neill Plastic Surgery

Here at O’Neill Plastic Surgery, we offer three levels of the HYDRAFACIAL treatment.

The first is the classic SIGNATURE level, this level of HYDRAFACIAL is simple, clean and certainly effective for the patient who is looking for a powerful pore clean out with a chemical peel.

The second of the three HYDRAFACIAL treatments is called the DELUXE level. This facial treatment will include the effective treatment that the SIGNATURE offers with the addition of serums to treat skin-specific skin concerns like Anti-aging, uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, rosacea, and dehydrated skin. Once the serum is applied, we will use a cordless LED Light handpiece over your skin. Color light, of blue or red, is emitted over an 8-minute period in sections of the face. Red light therapy is used for anti-aging purposes by elevating tissue temperature, increasing blood circulation, calming irritated skin, and promoting relaxation of muscle tissue. Blue LED light therapy is used to treat moderate inflammatory acne and kill bacteria for a clean overall feeling.

The third level of treatment for HYDRAFACIAL is called the PLATINUM level. It starts out with a gentle lymphatic massage to the face/neck/chest/body, stimulating your lymphatic system by short pulses of pull into a glass tubing to increase lymph flow and release toxins that are potentially built up. This is helpful to eliminate toxins in our bodies, promotes healthy skin balance, and fresh fluid flow bathing your skin cells. Lymphatic draining also helps with bodily bloat or puffiness we sometimes accumulate. In addition to the lymphatic drainage treatment, the PLATINUM HYDRAFACIAL will include every step the SIGNATURE AND DELUXE level treatment has to offer.

If you are wondering which facial is the right one for you our talented, and caring providers are here to help guide when you come in for a complimentary consultation at our Aesthetic and Laser Center on beautiful Daniel Island.
