Why the HydraFacial is a Game-Changing Treatment for Sensitive Skin

HydraFacial Treatment for Sensitive Skin | Austin DermatologyFacial treatments are one of the most popular skin care procedures to rejuvenate facial skin. However, many people make the mistake of receiving a strong facial treatment just before they have a social event to attend. The exfoliation and extractions can leave the skin red and inflamed.

The challenge is even greater for people with sensitive skin, because strong facials can do more harm than good in such cases. This is where HydraFacial, a patented facial treatment, can be a transformative dermatology solution for sensitive skin. Dr. Steven Zimmet is a dedicated dermatologist providing skin solutions to patients in Austin, TX and surrounding locations.

 

What makes HydraFacial Different?

HydraFacial can provide clear and evenly toned facial skin without the unwanted side effects of irritation or redness. This innovative skin care formula avoids the need for painful extractions, which makes it ideal for people with sensitive skin. According to experts, the mechanism and treatment involved in HydraFacial are quite different from the majority of facial treatments available today.

HydraFacial employs a double helix–like vacuuming action that is designed to exfoliate dead skin cells and remove excess oil from the skin. However, unlike more aggressive dermatology procedures such as microdermabraision which employ abrasive applications to clear the skin’s surface, the HydraFacial technique deposits a medical grade serum to allow the dead cells and debris to loosen up.

At the same time, HydraFacial will vacuum the surface with a soft silicone tip. The two-pronged action of loosening up the topmost skin layer and vacuum extraction produces deeply effective results in a gentle manner. Experienced dermatologist Dr. Zimmet receives patients from Austin, TX and nearby areas for HydraFacial.

HydraFacial can also be used to carry out hands-free extractions. The automated device will deposit glycolic and salicylic acid onto the targeted areas of the skin through the tip. This will enable the pores to open wide, making it possible for the vacuum suction to dislodge and suck up debris and deposits from deep inside.

Unlike several manual extraction treatments, this automated procedure does not apply strong pressure. The entire de-gunking process becomes much gentler and entirely free of pain or discomfort. Once the skin has been cleansed, the treatment provider will give a facial massage to lift the tension in the temples and jaw. This is followed by another automated skin cleansing and lymphatic drainage process to flush out the deep-seated toxins.

 

Exfoliation and Deep Cleaning

Abrasion and lancing are commonly used to perform exfoliation and deep cleaning. However, with HydraFacial, as the device touches the skin, the patient will feel only a very mild sucking sensation. The combination of glycolic and salicylic acid, which typically makes the skin tingle, will cause minimal to no discomfort with this procedure.

The patient is likely to have a completely gentle treatment experience, and may in fact wonder that the provider is not doing much in terms of cleansing and rejuvenating the face. However, the container of debris that has been collected from the skin pores will reveal the extent of work performed on the skin. That makes HydraFacial ideal for both patients with sensitive skin and those on the go.
