hydrafacialIt’s the most talked-about treatment all over social media, because no other facial compares to Hydrafacial. It will deliver instant, skin-changing results that you can see and feel immediately. Research shows that in the U.S. today, more Hydrafacials are being performed than Botox injections. Let’s take a look at what’s unique about this amazing facial treatment and how you can reap the many Hydrafacial benefits at Feinstein Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery.

What Is a HydraFacial?

Get ready to experience the “Best Skin of Your Life.” Hydrafacial is a medical-grade process that resurfaces the skin, leaving it smooth and vibrant, essentially uncovering a fresh new layer of skin below your top layer of dull skin.

The treatment is performed using a unique medical-grade device called a HydraPeel Tip that vacuums out dead skin and other pore-clogging debris. During your treatment, our Aesthetician will first use the HydraPeel tip to cleanse and peel your skin.  The second step of the treatment involves extracting debris from your pores with painless suction and hydrating your skin with intense moisturizers.  The final step infuses antioxidants and peptides into the skin’s surface to maximize your glow.

HydraFacial Benefits

Our Aesthetician will target your unique needs when you come in for your Hydrafacial — whether that’s hydration issues, acne, fine lines, and wrinkles. Hydrafacials are just as popular with our male patients, as they are for women and teens. The beauty of Hydrafacial is that it addresses ALL skin care needs:

  • Fine Lines and Wrinkles
  • Elasticity and Firmness
  • Blackheads
  • Skin Tone and Vibrancy
  • Skin Texture
  • Brown Spots
  • Enlarged Pores
  • Congested and Oily Skin
  • Plumps Skin
  • Redness

Treatment Options

Our signature Hydrafacial deeply cleanses, exfoliates, extracts, and hydrates the skin through super serums filled with antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acids.  It also includes manual extractions and a Dermaplane treatment.  

Our Deluxe Hydrafacial includes the signature facial above, but also, addresses specific skin care concerns by adding a Booster of your choice. Boosters can address brown spots, fine lines, wrinkles, skin tone, and elasticity.  

While Hydrafacial provides a number of wonderful benefits, remember that it’s not a one-time quick fix.   It is recommended that you get a treatment once every four to six weeks to maintain and restore skin health.

Today, you can choose from a smorgasbord of different types of facials, but the one that everyone is raving about is the gentle, non-invasive treatment - HydraFacial MD®. Hello, facial rejuvenation!

Do I Need a Facial?

You may be asking yourself, “Do I need a facial?” In our opinion, the answer, of course, is an unequivocally – YES!  Do you want healthier-looking skin?  A facial can help get you there, detoxifying the skin and promoting blood circulation. It also helps with lymphatic drainage and reduces puffiness, and helps reduce stress, because it’s so relaxing. It’s a great anti-aging treatment. A facial massage is the absolute best!

This incredible resurfacing procedure utilizes award-winning, patented technology to cleanse and detoxify, extract, hydrate, rejuvenate, and protect your skin.

How Does a HydraFacial MD® Work?

Like all facials, HydraFacial MD® cleanses the skin - a crucial first step. That’s followed by gentle exfoliation, but not just any kind of exfoliation.  This facial incorporates a scrub-free type of exfoliation known as microdermabrasion, which uncovers a new layer of skin. This is followed by relaxing resurfacing. The next step the aesthetician takes is to extract debris from pores with painless suction, and then nourish your skin with intensive moisturizers. The final steps involve saturating the skin’s surface with antioxidants and peptides.

What Are the Benefits of a HydraFacial MD®?

You are going to be amazed at the number of benefits of HydraFacial MD®.  It addresses so many skin care issues, including the following:

Treatment of wartsFind out the most effective ways to remove a wart.

The common wart is a small tumor caused by a virus known as the human papillomavirus (HPV). Warts can occur anywhere on the body. They may come and go over the years. The HPV infection can produce everything from the common, noncancerous wart, to cancerous warts of the mouth or genitals.

Since a virus causes warts, these benign growths are also contagious. Sharing towels and clothing, or even just coming in contact with their wart can cause the virus to spread. The good news is that most warts often go away on their own without treatment; however, it can often take months or even years for them to go away. If the wart is unsightly or in an uncomfortable spot then you may want to have it removed. Here are some of the top ways to effectively remove a wart yourself.

Salicylic Acid Treatment

Salicylic acid treatment can come in several forms including pads or gels. They can be used to get rid of a variety of different kinds of warts from the small ones to the large, lumpier ones. Salicylic acid works by breaking down the protein that makes up the layers of the wart.

At ­Home Freezing

While your dermatologist is able to remove warts with liquid nitrogen, if you’re looking to remove the wart yourself, then you can also opt for aerosol wart removals that can be sprayed on the wart to freeze it. While the over­the­counter products are nearly as effective as the freezing methods your dermatologist can use, many patients still find at­home freezing to be just as effective.

If none of these at­home treatments remove your wart, then it’s time to talk to your dermatologist about other treatment options. Keep in mind that even the most effective wart treatment can’t guarantee that the wart won’t grow back. This is because most of the treatments available only get rid of the wart but not the actual virus.

If you’re dealing with a painful or unsightly wart but over­the­counter treatments aren’t working, then it’s time to call our dermatology office today.

Facial Scars can have reduced visibilityFind out how your dermatologist can improve the appearance of your facial scars.

From traumatic injuries to acne, there are a variety of reasons why you may be dealing with facial scars; however, it doesn’t mean you have to live with them for the rest of your life. Your dermatologist offers up a range of cosmetic treatment options that can improve the appearance of your skin and reduce the look of your scars. If you’re ready to get newer, healthier­looking skin, find out more about what treatments could help you.

Dermabrasion: This cosmetic procedure uses a handheld device to remove the outermost layer of the skin. By abrading this top layer, we are able to remove dead skin cells and promote the growth of healthy new skin. Dermabrasion is used to effectively reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, enlarged pores and acne scars. However, this treatment is not effective against deep­set scars.

Laser Resurfacing: By using a high­powered laser, we can remove damaged skin and surface scars, helping to minimize the appearance of unsightly dermatological problems like lines, wrinkles, age spots, pigmented areas and scars caused by acne, injury or surgery.

Chemical peels: This treatment requires your dermatologist to apply a strong chemical solution over your skin to remove the top, damaged layer of skin and exfoliate the healthier, smoother-looking layer of new skin that is revealed. Chemical peels are another great way to dramatically reduce wrinkles, fine lines, dark spots and acne scars.

If you are dealing with superficial scars that are close to the surface of the skin, you will benefit greatly from this cosmetic procedure; however, those with deeper scars will not experience a significant improvement.

Injections: Your dermatologist is happy to offer both collagen and cortisone injections to help shrink and reduce the appearance of scars. By increasing the collagen in your face, we can give your skin more fullness to smooth out visible scars.

If you are interested in any of these dermatological treatments talk to your dermatologist today. Don’t let facial scarring affect your self­esteem. Make the choice to improve your skin and your confidence!

Each type of lotion is different. Find out how to care for your dry skin effectively.

Despite the fact that spring isn’t too far behind, we still have to put up with snow, cold temperatures and freezing winds. These winter elements can wreak havoc on our skin, causing it to become dry, chapped and red. If you are one of those people who are currently trying to find some way to alleviate their dry skin, then you’ve come to the right place. Find out the best moisturizer to help your chapped, cracked skin, and how to prevent this problem from happening to you next winter.

The Right Moisturizer for You

It can be difficult to choose the right product for your skin. After all, not all skin was created equally and there is often some trial and error when it comes to choosing the most effective moisturizer. So what kind of lotion should you look for? If you have sensitive skin, seek out a soothing, creamy moisturizer containing ceramide, which is gentle enough for delicate skin.

If you don’t have sensitive skin but you are suffering from severe dryness, then you’ll want to look for a richer moisturizer that contains urea, beeswax, or petroleum jelly, which help to lock in moisture and offer the skin a protective barrier against the drying elements.

Also, keep in mind that the skin on your face is different than the skin on your body so you’ll want to choose a different moisturizer for both. When it comes to choosing a moisturizer for your face look for a bottle that says that it’s noncomedogenic, which means that it won’t clog your pores and leave you prone to breakouts. Also opt for a moisturizer that acts as a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or more. This will also act as a protective shield against sun, wind, and cold.

Apply Your Moisturizer

How you apply your moisturizer is often just as important to choosing the proper moisturizer. We recommend applying a generous amount of moisturizer right after you step out of the shower and pat yourself partially dry. You want to apply your moisturizing cream to your skin while it’s still a bit moist to help your skin absorb more water.

If your skin needs some serious moisturizing then you may want to consider applying the cream before bedtime and then wearing breathable gloves or socks over the hands and feet overnight to offer a deeper moisturizing experience.

Don’t let dry skin drive you crazy. If you haven’t found a lotion that helps combat your dry skin, then it’s time to talk to your dermatologist today to find out what products are right for you. Call us to schedule an appointment and lets nip your dry skin in the bud.
