AquaFacial combines cleaning, extracting, and depositing serums into the skin for an effective exfoliating treatment that also nourishes and hydrates. Sometimes referred to as “hydradermabrasion,” this treatment uses a vacuum-like machine to suck up dead skin and extract clogged pores.
HOW DOES THE AquaFacial WORK?
Step 1: Cleaning
The AquaFacial tip is used with a specific deep cleansing solution to CLEANSE the surface of your skin removing the initial layer of oil and dirt.
Step 2: Exfoliation
A light chemical peel (combination of glycolic and salicylic acid) is applied to EXFOLIATE debris (dead skin). The chemical peel lowers the pH of the skin breaking the bonds that hold the upper dead layers of skin together to allow for the gentle removal of dead skin without irritation.
Step 3: Extraction
Painless suction easily dislodges blackheads, whiteheads and sebum to further EXTRACT these impurities from deep within the pores.
Step 4: Infusion
Antioxidants and hyaluronic acid are infused into the now clean and fresh skin to HYDRATE, nourish and protect the skin.
