Receiving a facial is a good way to improve the condition of your skin and fade your facial wrinkles. If you live near Severna Park, Columbia, or Annapolis, you should consider getting a gentle HydraFacial from Adoro Medical Spa in Severna Park, Maryland. This relaxing treatment can be used to address hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and many other skin conditions.
What Makes a HydraFacial Special?
If you have received facials in the past, you probably already know that many of these treatments can be expensive and ineffective. These treatments might use harsh ingredients that damage your delicate facial tissues without addressing your cosmetic concerns. In contrast, a HydraFacial is special because we will use an effective, multiple-step process to improve your skin. This technique will clean your pores and exfoliate your face.
In addition to removing some of your dead skin cells, we will enhance your complexion by applying peptides, hyaluronic acid, and other nourishing ingredients to your skin. Our advanced techniques will allow these anti-aging nutrients to penetrate into the deeper tissues on your face. Further, we can customize this beneficial treatment to focus on your specific skin issues and aesthetic goals.
How Should I Prepare?
Preparing for this anti-aging treatment is very easy, and you won’t be required to make major changes to your usual routine during the week before your facial. That said, you will need to be ready to make some very minor adjustments to your skincare and beauty routine. Although your instructions may vary, we will probably ask you to avoid using certain products for a few days.
For example, we may instruct you to stop using exfoliating products on your face for two days before your appointment. In addition, you should not get a chemical peel, laser session, or other anti-aging treatment for at least two weeks. Further, you should not receive Botox, dermal fillers, or other injectable treatments during this time.
What Should I Expect?
You will receive this gentle, anti-aging treatment during a quick appointment at our comfortable office in Severna Park. We will usually perform four main steps during your facial. Since you will receive a customized treatment, we may adjust these steps. For example, if you have very dry skin, we may focus on using hydrating ingredients to address this issue.
Step One: Exfoliation
It’s very common to have a large number of dead cells on the surface of your skin. This unnecessary cellular debris can clog your pores and give your face a dull, tired appearance.
At the beginning of your anti-aging facial, we will address this issue by using a special technique to gently remove some of these dead skin cells and open up your pores. This process will be very relaxing, and you might feel as though we are gently spinning a toothbrush over your face. Removing your dead skin cells is an ideal way to brighten your complexion and give you a more refreshed, energetic look.
Step Two: Peel
After we have exfoliated your skin, we will apply a customized peel onto your face. This anti-aging peel will contain glycolic and salicylic acids. You might feel a comfortable tingling sensation as we use these ingredients to improve your complexion.
Step Three: Extractions
During the third step of your facial, we will use a special device to suction debris and other materials from your pores. This process will reduce your acne and improve other skin issues. After we have completed your extractions, we will show you the materials that we have removed from your skin. Seeing the debris that is no longer clogging your pores can be a very pleasant and rewarding part of your anti-aging treatment.
Step Four: Serum
During the fourth part of your facial, we will administer a powerful serum onto your skin. This special serum will contain hyaluronic acid, peptides, and antioxidants. These beneficial ingredients will enhance your skin’s elasticity and hydrate your facial tissues.
What Will Happen After My Facial Is Complete?
You should expect to spend about 30 minutes to one hour at our office in Severna Park. Since we will use non-invasive techniques and gentle ingredients to enhance your complexion, you won’t have a long recovery period once we have finished your facial.
As soon as we complete the fourth step of your treatment, you will be able to reapply your makeup and leave our office. At this point, you’ll be free to go back to your workplace, go shopping, attend a social event, or return to your home.
Will I Achieve More Dramatic Results if I Receive Multiple Facials?
Receiving one hydrating facial will probably improve your skin for at least seven days. If you would like to use this aesthetic treatment to address fine lines, oily skin, or other cosmetic problems, we may advise you to get a series of these gentle treatments. For example, we may instruct you to get one facial every 30 days.
Who Is an Ideal Candidate for This Type of Facial?
Since this facial can be customized to address many different skin conditions, you will probably be a good candidate for this treatment. For example, you could use this facial to improve hyperpigmentation or enlarged pores. If you have fine lines on your face, you should also think about receiving this rejuvenating treatment. Further, if you have sensitive skin, we can adjust our ingredients to fit your unique needs.
Although this treatment is completely non-invasive, some medical issues will prevent you from getting this facial. In particular, you should not get this treatment if you have active herpes or cystic acne. In addition, you should tell us if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. If you are using Accutane to address your acne, you should stop using this medication for at least six months before your appointment.
Can I Use This Facial To Improve My Look Before a Significant Life Event?
Receiving facials and other aesthetic treatments before an important life event is an excellent way to increase your self-confidence. Our Special Occasion Center can help you enhance your appearance before a wedding, anniversary, family reunion, or significant birthday. In general, we will advise you to begin by receiving an initial consultation about six months before your big day.
During this personalized consultation, we can recommend facials, injectables, and other anti-aging treatments that will decrease your fine lines and improve other aspects of your appearance. For example, we may advise you to achieve glowing, beautiful skin by receiving monthly HydraFacials before your wedding day. Alternatively, we may recommend using a combination of facials and injectables to decrease your lines before a class reunion.
Can I Receive Injectables During My Appointment?
You might be able to achieve more significant changes in your look if you receive other aesthetic treatments during your appointment. For example, you might decide to get a hydrating facial and Botox injections during a single treatment session at our office in Severna Park. If you decide to combine these treatments, you will need to receive your facial and injections in the correct order.
In particular, you need to have your hydrating facial before you receive your injections. If you have already received Botox or another injectable treatment, you will need to give your face time to adjust to this aesthetic product. In general, we will advise you to wait at least two weeks before you schedule your HydraFacial.
Can I Use Other Anti-Aging Treatments To Improve My Skin?
In addition to improving your skin by receiving facials, you can enhance your complexion by getting chemical peels, injectables, and many other anti-aging treatments.
We offer a wide variety of different rejuvenating chemical peels at Adoro Medical Spa. For example, receiving a Glytone peel is a very good way to improve texture issues, fine lines, and other aesthetic problems. During this type of chemical peel, we will use a customized solution of glycolic acid to address these cosmetic challenges.
We also offer a Vi Peel that can be used to improve acne, decrease the visibility of your age spots, and enhance the texture of your skin. Receiving this type of chemical peel will also increase your ability to make new collagen fibers and diminish the prominence of your wrinkles and fine lines. Since this type of chemical peel is very gentle, you will have limited downtime after your anti-aging treatment is complete.
Micro-needling is a minimally invasive treatment that will use your natural healing powers to renew your tissues. This treatment can be used to address acne scars, stretch marks, pigmentation issues, and wrinkles. During your appointment, we will use fine needles to make very small injuries in your target area. This gentle process will promote the growth of healthy new cells and improve your aesthetic challenges.
Since we will use specialized techniques to maintain your comfort, you will feel very relaxed during your micro-needling treatment. In general, you will see improvements in moderate scars after you have received three sessions. If you are using this aesthetic treatment to address more significant scarring issues, you might see changes in your skin after you have received at least five sessions.
Receiving injectables like Botox and Restylane can be an excellent way to fade unwanted lines on your face. For example, we may use Botox to decrease the fine lines on the upper area of your face. To help you remain comfortable, we may use a gentle anesthetic cream to numb your skin before we perform your injections. After you receive your Botox injections, your wrinkles will begin to improve within about three to six days.
In addition to Botox, we offer many different dermal fillers. These anti-aging products can be used to fade lines on the lower area of your face and add volume to your lips and other facial features. For example, you might decide to use one of the products in the Restylane collection to decrease wrinkles around your nose and mouth or restore lost volume in your lips. Receiving this treatment will also increase the amount of moisture in your skin.
