Scientific American has published research on collagen, the skin component which promotes elasticity. Did you know you lose one percent facialsof your collagen every year starting at age 20? At Skin Center in Fort Lauderdale, your team of dermatologists is well aware of this fact and offers HydraFacial, a non-invasive, refreshing and collagen-stimulating service. Restore your skin's youthful appearance and tone.
 

As we age...

Several things happen:

  • Skin loses collagen and therefore, youthful tone and elasticity.
  • The sun's UV radiation damages skin color, creating spots and areas of hyperpigmentation.
  • Pores enlarge over time and accumulate oils and dead skin cells.
  • With aging, we acquire fine lines and wrinkles, particularly around the eyes, between the brows, around the lips and at the sides of the mouth.

 

What can you do?

At Skin Center, you'll receive a complete skin evaluation. You'll voice your medical and cosmetic concerns, and you and your physician will formulate a care plan.

One of our most popular cosmetic services is the HydraFacial. Performed right in our Fort Lauderdale office in about half an hour, a refreshing HydraFacial can:

  • Tone and firm your skin by stimulating collagen production
  • Extract oils, whiteheads and blackheads
  • Exfoliate dead skin cells and remove impurities caused by the environment
  • Peel away the dull outer skin layer to reveal younger, brighter skin underneath
  • Reduce the appearance of age and sun spots (hyperpigmentation)
  • Smooth bumps, scars and redness from acne and rosacea
  • Seal and protect your skin with special serums composed of natural hyaluronic acid, anti-oxidants and other skin-nourishing ingredients

 

Hydrafacials are easy

Just come into Skin Center and relax. Your 30-minute treatment will be painless, comfortabe professionally applied and best of all, effective. You'll notice more even skin tone and smoother texture right away.

Refreshing your appearance is easy and painless with HydraFacials. Whether you want to minimize lines, firm your skin or treat clear skinacne, the innovative facial treatment offers an excellent option. The treatment is just one of many skin care services offered by your Fort Lauderdale, FL, dermatologists at Skin Center.

What is HydraFacial?

Hydrafacials use a multi-step process to clean, exfoliate, and hydrate your skin. Unlike some treatments that initially make your skin look red or splotchy, HydraFacials are incredibly gentle and won't cause sensitivity or dryness.

Who can benefit from HydraFacials?

Your Fort Lauderdale, FL, dermatologist may recommend a HydraFacial if:

  • Your skin has lost a little elasticity.
  • You have fine lines and wrinkles.
  • You want to improve the texture of your skin and reduce the size of your pores.
  • You have brown spots or age spots.
  • Nothing you've tried has improved your acne or acne scars.
  • Rosacea has left your face red and bumpy.

What happens during a HydraFacial?

Exfoliation is an important part of any facial, but traditional exfoliation methods can irritate your skin. The HydraFacial system removes dead skin cells using only water. During the first step of the HydraFacial process, your skin will be thoroughly cleaned with a handheld device that sprays water on your face, then uses gentle suction to remove bacteria, oil, dead skin cells and dirt.

After your skin is cleaned and exfoliated, you'll receive a mild chemical peel made of glycolic and salicylic acid. Peels help minimize lines, wrinkles and age spots and remove pimples and shallow scars. Although the treatment is called a "peel," you won't actually notice any peeling in the days following your HydraFacial.

Your treatment also involves cleaning your pores to remove whiteheads and blackheads and applying serums that help improve wrinkles and lines, minimize age spots, even out skin tone and hydrate your skin. The serums you receive will depend on your particular skin issues. At the conclusion of your HydraFacial, you'll receive a special protective serum made up of hyaluronic acids, peptides and antioxidants.

You'll leave your Fort Lauderdale, FL, dermatologist's office with clearer, firmer, younger-looking skin and can return to your usual activities.

HydraFacial Have you been looking for a way to rejuvenate your aging skin? If you answered "yes," then you need to look into HydraFacial from your board-certified dermatologists at the Skin Center in Fort Lauderdale! An amazing combination of cleansing, exfoliating, brightening, smoothing and tightening, this medical-grade spa experience gives patients a refreshed look and feel in just thirty minutes. Is HydraFacial right for you?

What is a HydraFacial?

At the Skin Center, you'll be carefully examined and have your skin goals reviewed before your doctor recommends this innovative and reliable procedure. If you qualify, your HydraFacial will smooth sagging skin, tighten overly large pores, and lighten dark spots.

Most people can enjoy a HydraFacial no matter what their skin type or age. However, pregnant women and individuals with active skin lesions, rosacea, or sunburn should postpone this treatment.

Here's How It Works

The entire HydraFacial process is performed in a comfortable and modern treatment room right at the Skin Center. Using a special handheld instrument and skin-loving treatments, your provider will combine the wonderful effects of a chemical peel, toning facial, and exfoliative microdermabrasion treatment all in one procedure.

Additionally, you'll enjoy painless extraction of acne lesions and the soothing benefits of Britenol Boost for hyperpigmentation along with precise delivery of peptides, hyaluronic acid, and protective growth factors and antioxidants. The spiral-tipped delivery tool is gentle, yet effective, in cleansing pores. The LED portion of the procedure tightens and thickens skin, helping it resist sagging and the fine lines.

It's Renewable

A HydraFacial lasts for several days, making your enhanced appearance perfect for special occasions such as weddings, a professional presentation, or a second honeymoon. It's so good for your skin and self-confidence that your dermatologists at the Skin Center recommend it as often as once a month, in conjunction with your other medical and aesthetic dermatology needs of course.

Why Not Learn More?

If a HydraFacial seems perfect for you, why not contact the Skin Center and arrange a consultation with one of our expert providers? You'll receive a full evaluation and care plan, along with a skin sensitivity test to ensure this innovative treatment is a good match for your skin.
