Every year we reach that point of the summer when our skin has had enough. Sweat, sunscreen, makeup, dirt, and oil have been working together for months to clog our pores and upset our skin. There’s only one way to clear out all of this gunk and make our skin happy again: exfoliation.
If you’re someone who regularly exfoliates at home, that’s great! You’re ahead of the curve. However, for most of us, we may not be exfoliating as much as we need to be. The good news is that no matter where your at-home skin care falls on the spectrum, you can always benefit from an exfoliating facial in Oxford.
At Revive Wellness Clinic, our exfoliating Hydrafacial cleanses, extracts, and hydrates to remove impurities and unveil glowing skin. Let’s dive into how the facial works, how often you can receive it, its benefits, and everything else you need to know about the Hydrafacial.
What is a Hydrafacial?
Most of our facials are performed by hand, but the Hydrafacial device takes treatment to a whole new level. During a Hydrafacial, your esthetician uses a handheld wand that works as a vacuum to open pores, extract impurities, and allow for product to penetrate deeper. Deep within your skin lies all the dead skin cells, dirt, and other impurities that can’t be removed with just any product or tool.
This exfoliating facial in Oxford follows a 3-step process:
Step 1: Cleanse
The first step of the renowned Hydrafacial is a deep, gentle cleanse that removes dead skin cells from the surface and uncovers a new layer of skin. Your Revive esthetician will use medical-grade cleansing products and a peel to prepare your skin for extraction.
Step 2: Extract
Step 2 is when we break out the wand to suction out all the build-up from deep within your pores. Your esthetician will move the wand across the surface of your face to clear out your skin; this is completely painless!
Step 3: Hydrate
The final step is what puts the “hydra” in Hydrafacial. We’ll apply personalized nourishing serums to seal in moisture and soothe your skin. These serums could be hydrating, brightening, firming, resurfacing, collagen-inducing, and so much more.
What the Hydrafacial addresses
So many people love this facial because of how versatile and gentle it is. No matter what skin concerns you have, the Hydrafacial can only help them! This exfoliating facial in Oxford commonly addresses:
- Dehydrated skin
- Oily skin
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- Enlarged pores
- Clogged pores
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Skin elasticity
Am I a candidate for a Hydrafacial?
Yes! The beauty of this facial is it is built for all skin types—even very sensitive skin. There’s no need to worry about your skin breaking out or issues flaring up from this gentle facial.
When to get a Hydrafacial & how often
You can’t go wrong with whatever season, day, or time you decide to receive this exfoliating facial in Oxford. It’s safe to receive during the harshest conditions of the year and no matter what skin issues you have flaring up. If you’re dealing with any of the common concerns that the Hydrafacial addresses, request your consultation so we can chat about your treatment plan.
As for how often, we recommend this exfoliating facial once per month for the most rejuvenating, long-term results. If it’s a treat-yourself-once-in-a-while kind of situation for you, that’s perfectly acceptable, too.
How long do results last?
Results are immediate and you can enjoy your visibly happy, glowing skin for about a week. The more treatments you receive, the better and longer-lasting the results will be. During your consultation, we’ll discuss your concerns and goals so we can build your personalized treatment plan. The plan will include your personalized serums for the facial as well as how many sessions you will need to meet your goals.
In case you aren’t sold on our exfoliating facial in Oxford just yet, we want to cover some of the best benefits of the Hydrafacial.
Safe for all skin types
This facial is a world-favorite because of its gentle nature. Whether you’re struggling with acne, extremely oily, dry, or sensitive skin, you can benefit from this facial. You’ll still want to let us know if you’re concerned about how your skin might react so we can customize your treatment with the gentlest serums and extraction.
Another major perk is that you’re able to visibly see results immediately after treatment. Oftentimes, with other aesthetic or skincare treatments, it takes time for results to show up—but not with our exfoliating facial at Revive!
Treats a variety of concerns
As we mentioned before, the Hydrafacial’s versatility makes it widely popular. Whether you’re looking more for anti-aging solutions or skin tone and texture improvement, this facial is for you.
We are able to customize the depth of treatment as well as the types of medical-grade serums we use. When we discuss your goals and concerns, we’ll tailor your treatment in order to provide you with the best results.
