What is a Hydrafacial?
The HydraFacial is a 3-step facial treatment that exfoliates, hydrates and nourishes the skin.
HydraFacial is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that uses a specialized device to cleanse, exfoliate, and hydrate the skin. The treatment involves a 3-step process that uses various tools and serums to remove dead skin cells, extract impurities, and infuse the skin with antioxidants and hyaluronic acid. The process is gentle and typically takes 30 minutes to an hour, with no downtime or recovery period required.
What are the Benefits of a Hydrafacial?
The HydraFacial treatment offers numerous skin health benefits, including:
- Improves skin texture and tone
- Removes dead skin cells, excess oil, and impurities
- Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Enhances skin hydration
- Reduces hyperpigmentation
- Can be customized to meet the needs of each patient
What Does a HydraFacial Enhance Hydration Hour?
The HydraFacial offers two key components that enhance skin health and appearance, while also complementing the results from other Hydration Hour treatments. Primarily, HydraFacial serves to exfoliate and rejuvenate the outermost layers of skin on the face. However, it also nourishes the skin with various active ingredients that enhance its natural glow and work together with the benefits of our other services.
What are the 3 Steps of a HydraFacial?
The 3 steps of the HydraFacial treatment are as follows:
- Cleanse: The HydraFacial treatment begins with a gentle cleanse and exfoliation, uncovering a new layer of skin and preparing the skin for the subsequent treatment steps.
- Extract: The second step is extraction, during which the HydraFacial device uses gentle suction to remove dirt, oil and other impurities from the pores.
- Hydrate: The final step in the HydraFacial treatment is hydration. During this step, the skin will be nourished with moisturizers and other beneficial ingredients. After the cleansing and extracting steps, the skin is prepared to absorb these materials and get the maximum benefits from them.
What is a Myer’s Cocktail?
The Myer’s Cocktail is our recommended IV therapy solution for patients seeking an uplift or energy boost. IV therapy is performed using drip infusion, which delivers vitamins and other supplements directly to the bloodstream. The Myer’s Cocktail offers the following ingredients:
- B-complex Vitamins
- Vitamin B-12
- Vitamin C
How Does a Myer’s Cocktail Enhance Hydration Hour?
The HydraFacial treatment is designed to give the skin a noticeable external glow, while the Myer’s Cocktail can provide an internal glow to enhance your mood and energy. When combined as part of the Hydration Hour treatment, these treatments help patients feel their best both inside and out.
What are the Benefits of a Myer’s Cocktail?
Some of the most common benefits of Myer’s Cocktails include:
- Improved energy
- Enhanced immune function
- Reduced inflammation
- Relief of migraine symptoms
- Improved mood
What are Smart Toxins?
A smart toxin is a type of toxin that is designed to target specific cells or tissues in the body, while minimizing damage to healthy cells. Smart toxins are carefully formulated and administered under medical supervision to achieve therapeutic benefits while minimizing harm to healthy cells and tissues. At Arizona Facial Plastics, our preferred smart toxin is Xeomin®. Xeomin® is a smart toxin with a double-filtered formula that removes unnecessary proteins, so you get only what's needed. It is most often used to reduce the appearance of frown lines.
What are the Benefits of Xeomin®?
Xeomin® is primarily used to address frown lines. It does this by relaxing the facial muscles, which smooths out the surrounding wrinkles and lines. Additionally, Xeomin® can be used to treat:
- Neck spasms
- Excessive sweating
- Overactive bladders
- Lazy eyes
How Do Smart Toxins Enhance Hydration Hour?
When combined with the Hydration Hour treatments, smart toxins like Xeomin® can complement the rejuvenating benefits you get from HydraFacial and Myer’s Cocktails. It helps enhance the glow you’ll notice after treatment by smoothing out facial lines and wrinkles.
Is Xeomin® Better Than Botox®?
Xeomin® and Botox® are both brands of botulinum toxin type A that are used for cosmetic purposes, such as reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face. While both products are similar in many ways, Xeomin® does have a few advantages. One potential advantage is that it contains only the active ingredient, botulinum toxin, and does not contain any additives or proteins. Some people may prefer this, as it may reduce the risk of developing an allergic reaction or resistance to the treatment. Additionally, Xeomin® may have a faster onset of action compared to Botox®, with results visible within a few days.
How Much Do Uplift Lounge Services Cost?
Uplift Lounge services are not covered by medical insurance so you will be responsible for the cost. We accept payment by cash, check, major credit cards and financing through CareCredit®.
Is There Any Downtime After Uplift Lounge Services?
Our facials do not require any special recovery. You can return to work and your normal activities immediately after the appointment, often with results already visible.
