As skin ages and is exposed to the damaging effects of the sun, wind and other elements, it naturally starts to lose some of its luster. Dry skin, a dull complexion, sun spots, and clogged pores can make it harder to apply makeup smoothly or achieve the bare-faced look you love, but Eye for Beauty has a solution. The Hydrafacial treatment is a three-part process that cleanses, exfoliates, and refreshes your skin. Here’s how it works and what to expect at your first appointment.
Hydrafacial Treatments Bring Big Benefits To All Skin Types
Whether you struggle with dry, oily, or sensitive skin, the Hydrafacial can get you closer to your beauty goals. It resurfaces your skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and sun spots, and replenishes your skin’s natural moisture for a healthy, dewy look. It also clears pores to help improve the appearance of acne and reduce your chances of future breakouts. When combined with a dermaplaning treatment, the Hydrafacial becomes Hydraplaning, which can offer even more benefits for those who want to get rid of peach fuzz and uneven skin texture.
What To Expect During The Treatment
The Hydrafacial begins with a deep cleansing that helps prep the skin, clears pores, and begins the process of removing the old skin cells. Next up is the peel step, which goes deeper into the skin to tighten, tone, and brighten your complexion. The last step of the treatment is focused on exfoliating and rehydrating the skin to restore moisture and give you a healthy glow.
One of the best things about the Hydrafacial treatment is that it only takes a half-hour and can easily be squeezed into your schedule between appointments or during your lunch break. Any post-treatment redness is minor and can be easily covered with makeup directly after the treatment as there aren’t any restrictions on when you can go back to your regular skin care and beauty routine.
If you’re ready to schedule your first Hydrafacial and experience this luxurious treatment and the benefits it can bring to your skin firsthand, contact us today to reserve your appointment.
We as skincare professionals, can’t stress this enough. Ask any dermatologist, aesthetician or skincare professional and they will say the same thing: wear sunscreen! It doesn’t matter if it’s cloudy or sunny, raining or snowing, winter or summer, wear the sunscreen!
Eye for Beauty Aesthetics is thrilled to announce our partnership with one of the highest rated sunscreen companies on the market: EltaMD. EltaMD has been in the physician-dispensed market for more than 25 years and is rated the number one dermatologist recommended sunscreen brand. They offer a variety of sunscreen formulations to fit all skin types and needs. Their sunscreens are mild and gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin types. They are also ideal for clients who have recently undergone invasive skin resurfacing treatments. Furthermore, EltaMD susncreens offer broad-spectrum coverage effective enough to fight exposure from UVA and UVB rays.
Mineral Based Sunscreen
Many EltaMD sunscreens are a combination of physical sun blockers including transparent Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide. These ingredients are fantastic because they are mineral based and chemical free. Together, titanium dioxide and zinc oxide provide excellent UVA and UVB coverage. Additionally, these ingredients are considered safe, effective and gentle enough for sensitive skin, including children 6 months and older.
Sunscreen And Skincare
In addition to providing excellent sun protection ingredients, many EltaMD products also provide skin loving ingredients like hyaluronic acid and antioxidants. These ingredients provide additional hydration and protection to the skin. Consider these sunscreens as skincare serums in addition to sun protection! They feel wonderful on the skin, do not clog pores, and do not have that typical sunscreen smell.
The entire EltaMD line is cruelty free, not tested on animals, is dye-free, fragrance-free, gluten-free, oil-free, paragon-free, sensitivity-free, and noncomedogenic (won’t clog pores). Many formulations come in an untainted or tinted formula. The tinted formulas are a universal tint that blends beautifully into most skin types. The clear formulas are sheer and do not cast a white or grey tone on the skin. They truly are gentle, safe, and effective for all skin types.
Skin Cancer Foundation
What we love most about EltaMD is that their sunscreen products are backed by the Skin Cancer Foundation. The Skin Cancer Foundation sets the bar when it comes to sun protection. Products that bear the SCF Seal offer safe and effective sun protection. Their rigorous testing ensures that no matter which sunscreen you choose, when applied and reapplied correctly, will fully protect your skin against skin cancer.
EltaMD’s commitment to providing top quality protection at an affordable price makes it a favorite here at Eye for Beauty Aesthetics. We think you are going to love them as much as we do!
