We all know that skin hydration is critical – no one ever argues that but where most people get into trouble is in thinking that they have proper skin hydration. Just because your skin doesn’t FEEL dry or look like ready to crack, that doesn’t mean its hydrated. In fact, if you’re anywhere near either of those things happening, you’re experiencing some damage.
So, here are some important facts.
This post isn’t about explaining how to hydrate or what your daily routine should be, although I have other posts that you NEED to read when it comes to anti-aging hydration and diet – but the focus here is how isolate your skin and rapidly repair it through hydration while setting yourself up to have beautiful, healthy and young skin going forward.
The hydrafacial or “hydradermabrasion” as it is often referred to works instantaneously and combines a mechanical stimulation to activates the basal layer of your skin while thickening and smoothing the epedermis which addresses the thinning process that results from lost collagen and lack of hydration. Then, fibroblast activity results in extracellular matrix deposition and dermal thickening.
Antioxidants which are introduced through the procedure hydrate and decrease inflammation in the skin, reversing photo damage, while protecting lipid membranes, collagen fibers, and enzyme systems.
Whew! That was a lot to say. In short, you’re able to hydrate, decrease inflammation, promote collagen and reverse damage in just a few minutes.
By now, all of you know Robin so I’ll skip the introduction! She was, once again, performing the procedure on me. To start, there is a cleansing process accompanied by a message – quite possibly the best facial massage ever. The cleansing process is pretty straight forward and the the massage is done to help increase blood flow and prep the skin for the treatment.
