At Vibrant Dermatology in Dedham, MA, we know how important it is to look and feel your best. So we offer the most advanced skincare treatments that provide the perfect balance of gentle and effective to ensure you leave our offices with impressive results.
What Is an Aqua Facial?
Aqua Facials are skincare treatments that rejuvenate the skin in as little as 30 minutes. The experts at Vibrant Dermatology can tailor your Aqua Facial treatments to meet your skin’s specific needs with instant and significant results.
The Aqua Facial treatment removes dead skin cells and extracts impurities while refreshing and cleansing the new skin with clarifying, hydrating and moisturizing serums. Aqua Facials soothe and rejuvenate the skin and are appropriate for all skin types, including the most sensitive skin.
Why Get an Aqua Facial?
Aqua Facial treatments offer improvements in skin health for several concerns, including:
- Fine lines
- Uneven tone and texture
- Skin laxity
- Oily and congested skin
- Large pores
Considered one of the most effective non-surgical skincare treatments available, an Aqua Facial uniquely treats your skin without any downtime or discomfort.
How Does an Aqua Facial work?
Aqua Facials use a multi-step process to cleanse, exfoliate, and extract impurities from the skin, infusing it with serums specifically chosen to target your skin concerns.
Our Aqua Facial treatments build collagen in the skin through stimulating, exfoliating, and infusing potent serums, delivering vibrant, smooth skin. Each step of an Aqua Facial offers its own benefits and results.
Step 1: Cleansing and Exfoliation
In the first step of your Aqua Facial, the skilled team at Vibrant Dermatology will gently exfoliate away the dead skin cells to reveal healthy new skin. Simultaneously, we’ll infuse a serum containing lactic and glycolic acid to deeply cleanse and nourish the skin.
Benefits of Exfoliation
While your skin naturally sloughs off dead skin cells every 30 days, sometimes those cells don’t shed completely. When that happens, you’ll experience dry and flaky patches of skin and clogged pores.
Exfoliating will help your skin look brighter and absorb topical skincare products more easily. In addition, regular exfoliation can prevent clogged pores, leading to fewer breakouts and even increasing collagen production, leading to glowing, vibrant skin with less skin laxity.
Benefits of Lactic and Glycolic Acid
Lactic and glycolic acids are popular alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) that exfoliate skin and leave a beautiful glow. These two acids break down dead skin cells on the skin’s surface, improve dullness and dryness, and leave skin bright and vibrant. They also prime the skin so that further treatments will penetrate the skin’s surface better.
Step 2: Acid Peel
In the second step of your Aqua Facial treatment, we’ll apply a gentle salicylic and glycolic acid serum to loosen the dead skin and debris in your pores, preparing your skin for extractions.
Benefits of Glycolic and Salicylic Acids
Glycolic acid is an AHA, while salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid (BHA). Like glycolic acid, salicylic acid offers an exfoliating effect on the skin. However, salicylic acid also removes excess sebum or oil in the skin and reduces the body’s sebum production, allowing it to unclog pores effectively.
Since glycolic acid has a small molecular structure, it can permeate deeply into the pores to loosen debris. At the same time, salicylic acid offers anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties, calming and cleaning the skin. Using these two products together provides unique benefits, especially in treating acne.
Step 3: Extractions
The third step in the Aqua Facial unclogs pores using the vortex-extraction nozzle. This nozzle offers a gentle vacuum effect, lifting and cleansing clogged dirt in the pores. A cup at the machine’s base holds all of the dirt and grime pulled from the pores, so you can see exactly how effective these extractions are.
Benefits of Facial Extractions
Facial extractions provide an even and clear complexion with less congestion and better product absorption and efficacy. In addition, the unique preparation and extraction tools used in an Aqua Facial allow for even, gentle pore extractions without damage or trauma to the skin.
Steps 4 and 5: Hydration and Serum Application
Continuing with the vortex infusion tool, we’ll infuse a serum full of antioxidants and collagen into your skin. While the Aqua Facial is highly customizable, most patients choose a serum combination that improves skin tone, elasticity, and hydration and offers soothing properties.
What Should I Expect from Aqua Facial Treatments?
Aqua Facial skincare treatments offer instant results, and you’ll notice a difference as soon as your session is complete. In addition, you can expect to see continued improvement in your skin as the procedure stimulates your body’s production of collagen and elastin.
Your immediate results may include:
- Softer, smoother skin
- Reduced appearance of pores
- Clearer skin
- More even complexion
- Reduction in the appearance of fine lines
Over time, you’ll continue to see your skin improve, with fewer breakouts and a sustained improvement in your skin’s tone and texture.
