Why You Should Choose Aveda Products For Your Hair CareMay 10, 2023
What if you could quench your thirsty skin, improving its tone, texture and firmness while speeding up its turnover rate all in one, 30-minute treatment? Look no further, because Zahra Salon and Medical Spa now has something special to offer; The HydraFacials system is a revolutionary addition to your skincare routine that will keep you looking younger with zero downtime and the best medical-grade products.
How Does It Work?
The HydraFacial treatment uses a patented three-step approach in caring for your skin. The first step is a gentle cleanse and exfoliation using double vortex technology to extract dirt, oil and debris from the skin. While a gentle suction clarifies the pores, the cleanser, peel and hydrating antioxidant formulas are simultaneously infused into the skin. The delivery system looks like a wand which the technician passes over the client’s skin in a face-mapping formation. The wand comes with disposable, colored tips, each serving a different purpose during the facial; The blue tip is specifically designed for gentle exfoliation, the teal tip is for extractions and the white tip is used for infusing the skin with antioxidants. The procedure is completely pain-free yet gives a deep exfoliation and will transform your skin in just one session. You will leave the spa with rosy, glowing skin that feels firm and detoxified. Monthly HydraFacials are recommended to maintain skin health.

Are There Any Risks or Contraindications?
Although HydraFacials are perfectly safe for most skin conditions, there are some things to consider before booking in for one. It is normal to see redness or feel a slight tingling sensation after your facial, which should subside within a few hours. We always prefer to be on the safe side and have clients fill out a medical history form beforehand so that we are aware of any risks. You may not be a candidate for the HydraFacial if any of the following apply to you:
· Bacterial or viral infection
· Uncontrolled diabetes or high blood pressure
· Impaired immune system or poor healing
· History of cancer within the past 5 years
· Accutane (acne medication) in the past year
· Irregular pigmentation
· Botox or fillers injected within the past 2 weeks
· CO2 laser treatment or similar type of treatment within the past 6 months
What Can I Expect During The Treatment?
Upon arrival at your appointment, you will fill out the necessary forms. Once you are brought into the treatment room and are comfortable on the heated table, your spa technician will discuss your goals for the treatment, such as smoothing texture, addressing dryness, reducing wrinkles or treating acne. Once you are ready to begin, the spa technician will do a double cleanse, removing the product with a hot towel, and go through each step as indicated on the screen. After exfoliating and softening your pores with
the blue tip, you will receive a peel and extractions with the teal tip, which may cause a light tingling sensation on the skin. This step utilizes the power of both glycolic and salicylic acid for optimal resurfacing and sebum elimination. The facial ends with an antioxidant treatment delivered with the white tip, and finally sunscreen will be applied for protection from harmful rays. The best part is when you get to see the “Gunky” waste container, which is a reservoir for extractions and dead skin cells removed during the facial. (Gross!) This is a quick and painless, 30-minute procedure, making it easy to fit into anybody’s busy lifestyle.
Are There Any Add-ons to This Treatment?
The 30-minute Signature HydraFacials are a great starting point to help us get to know your skin, however if you have the time and want to receive even more benefits, there are some add-ons available. The 45-minute, Deluxe HydraFacial features everything in the Signature, but with the addition of Light Stim therapy, which uses a combination of red and amber lights (for treating wrinkles), or blue lights (for treating inflammation and acne.) The 60-minute Platinum HydraFacials also offers lymphatic drainage using a narrow cup shaped attachment and a light suction. This helps to detoxify the skin via the lymphatic pathways in the face and neck.
