So last week at Pulse Laser I had my first HydraFacial…….
What is the HydraFacial? Let me tell you... it was nothing short of amazing! I was scheduled to be treated by Monica and before we began she let me know everything the procedure would comprise. This was especially helpful for me since I like to ask questions, and was able to get them all out before we started. Her energy is great and she was able to get my normally very hyper personality to a calm state of tranquility.
The first thing she did was clean off any make up or dirt that had gotten onto my face throughout the day. Don't worry - I hadn't been playing in mud or anything, but believe it or not a lot of dirt particles from the air like to catch a ride on your skin. This is why it's so important to use a good cleanser at night!
Next, she exfoliated my skin to remove the dead skin cells. At this point my eyes were closed and all of my stress built up from the week had nearly melted away. She continued with an acid peel which may sound harsh, but was actually quiet cool and relaxing. As she rubbed on the gel she mentioned that I may feel a little tingle. The solution was very gentle on my skin and I actually didn’t feel a thing.
Afterwards she did extractions. The nozzle felt like a mini vacuum on my face sucking out all of the “gunk”, which was strangely satisfying.
And finally was the infusion of the hydrating serum. Monica informed me of how rich in vitamins and antioxidants this was, and that it will help keep my skin hydrated and protected from the elements. Forty minutes of pure relaxation…..
Overall, I loved this treatment. My skin felt very light and refreshed and a week later I can still see a glow! I normally have an oily T zone with dryness everywhere else, but the HydraFacial was able to target and treat each zone specifically. If you’re looking for something to make you feel hydrated and refreshed before a big day and otherwise get your skin balanced, toned and healthy, the Hydrafacial is definitely the perfect treatment for you.
