Skin care has become an increasingly important topic, especially for young people who want to take care of their face, neck, and hands from an early age to maintain healthy and youthful-looking skin in adulthood. Additionally, most women are constantly searching for products, treatments, and options that will keep their skin beautiful and rejuvenated. In this constant search for procedures that improve the appearance of the skin, hydrodermabrasion emerges as an ideal option if you want to give your skin deep hydration and cleansing, removing all the impurities that are obtained from the environment and that can damage the skin.

You may have heard of microdermabrasion, but it's a different treatment.

Microdermabrasion also removes impurities, but often leaves the skin sensitive and red after application, requiring additional measures for continued care. On the other hand, hydrodermabrasion is a more natural and gentle treatment for the skin, as it uses a pressurized saline solution to remove all the dead skin cells, allowing the superficial layer of the skin, the epidermis, to be eliminated and regenerated for a clean, hydrated, luminous, and incredible appearance.

So, what is hydrodermabrasion all about?

This procedure uses a machine with micro-needles on the tip, which allow access to the first layer of skin. To start, the machine is placed approximately 7 millimeters away from the skin, which allows for exfoliation, cleaning, and removal of all dead cells. Subsequently, it is placed about 3 millimeters away to perform exfoliation, and finally, using the same device, this process is complemented by introducing vitamins, antioxidants, or the desired substance into the skin, according to the desired result. All of this is achieved by the pressure that is applied with the machine using water, which pushes impurities out and incorporates good substances into the skin to give it that wonderful appearance.

What are the benefits of hydrodermabrasion?

It is a less invasive procedure that deeply cleanses the skin, reduces blemishes, eliminates blackheads and pimples, is ideal for treating acne, rejuvenates the skin of the face, helps with scars on the skin, and not only has multiple benefits but also helps to maintain healthy and hydrated skin. By eliminating the superficial layer with hydrodermabrasion, the skin will regenerate, giving way to a much more luminous, rejuvenated, and fresh-looking appearance. There is no age restriction for this procedure, as both young and adult individuals can undergo this treatment if they want to improve the appearance of their skin, and it can even be combined with other non-surgical facial treatments to achieve an incredible result.
