One of today’s prevalent skin concern is dry and dehydrated skin. Dull, dry skin and fine lines are also what I worry about in my 30’s. I am a skincare junkie. I love trying new products: some are formulated better than others, some products are not able to penetrate the deeper skin layer (dermis) giving skin only temporary relief, some are packed with hyaluronic acids, antioxidant and nutrients to help rebuild your lipid skin barriers.
I was invited for an Advanced HydraFacial Treatment targeting my skin concerns: dehydration and preventing fine lines. This treatment includes the VERY Popular HydraFacial MD Treatment plus the addition of an enzyme, mask and extra antioxidants and nutrients to further support the skin and boost the results. This treatment is exclusive to SKN Clinic.
Specific to my skin’s needs aesthetician also added were the DermaPeel Enzyme by Rhonda Allison, The Three Layers of Hydration from Forget Beauty, The Nourishing Milk Mask by Rhonda Allison.
What is a HydraFacial Treatment?
HydraFacial MD® is a transformational skin experience that takes the traditional facial and peel to a whole new level. It is a non-invasive, multistep treatment that combines the benefits of next-level hydradermabrasion, a mild chemical peel, automated painless extractions and a special delivery of Antioxidants, Hyaluronic Acid and Peptides. This treatment delivers immediate results without downtime or irritation.
The extraction has no pinching and you can actually see what has been removed from your skin. Gross but also really satisfying!
What is the Hydrafacial Process?
- Cleanse and Exfoliate: dead skin cells are removed, new healthy skin revealed
- Gentle Acid Peel: Loosens impurities from pores without irritation
- Extract: Vortex suction extracts and cleans out pores in a painless procedure
- Hydrate: Antioxidants and Hyaluronic Acid are Vortex-Fused to protect and nourish skin
After my facial at SKN, my feels subtle, hydrated and very clean. To maintain and rebuild my lipid layers I started using Forget Beauty’s 3 Layers of Hydration system exclusively for three months and absolutely love the suppleness it brought to my face.
