HydraFacial® MD in Columbus, OH
Hydrate your face like never before! The HydraFacial® MD uses the latest technology to clear your skin of impurities and give you soft, clear and more luminous skin. Downtown Dermatology offers HydraFacial® MD treatments to men and women in the Columbus and Upper Arlington area.
What is HydraFacial® MD?
The HydraFacial® MD is a non-ablative and non-invasive treatment, which uses a four in one vortex technology system, comprised of vortex cleansing, hydra peel exfoliation, vortex extraction and vortex fusion. These four treatments in one system work to address all the issues that make your skin look aged, wrinkly, uneven, spotted, blotchy, and can even address some acne issues.
Dr. Hicks-Graham chooses The HydraFacial® MD technology for its vast benefits such as, the unique spiral design that gently spins and creates suction to resurface the skin. The spiraling tip of the applicator works by opening the pores to cleanse, exfoliate and extract impurities under the surface while leaving the skin undamaged. The hydration part, which is the fourth step in the process delivers a serum that nourishes the skin and hydrates from the inside out.
The HydraFacial® MD is truly revolutionary in its design and its unique ability to cleanse and smooth without the harshness associated with other treatments. Traditional lasers and/or skin rejuvenation treatments may sometimes cause unwanted side effects like leaving your skin red, itchy and sometimes swollen; this procedure affords you instant and lasting results that are gentle enough for the most sensitive skin types.
