Spa treatments have evolved considerably over the last decade in order to compete with the growing popularity of medical spas. Manufacturers of facial equipment cater to consumers who are more results-oriented than ever before. That’s because basic facials are being passed over for more advanced treatments. Hydroimpact, for instance is a deep-cleansing facial that uses a hydrogen water-jet system to scrub the pores and neutralize free radicals to improve the skin’s appearance.
Hydroimpact is based on the premise that free radicals are the “fundamental cause” of skin aging and proponents of the technology claim that by saturating the skin with water and dissolved hydrogen gas the skin is cleansed of impurities and free radicals. Other benefits can be experienced as well such as improved elasticity, reduction of pore size, acne and pigmentation plus softening of wrinkles. The procedure is described in marketing literature as “exhilarating” and a “wonderful gentle vibration” whirling away on the skin’s surface.
Hydroimpact may feel pleasant and relaxing but there is little evidence that this spa facial treatment is anything more than a glorified hydrating facial whose benefits are mostly superficial with short-lived skin plumping and hydrating effects. Injecting the epidermis with water may temporarily soften lines and make the skin’s surface softer but in order to eradicate wrinkles, acne, scars and improve texture long-term the changes would need to occur much deeper, at the dermal layers.
The team at Azala Medical Aesthetics prides itself on offering patients only the most effective services with minimal downtime and discomfort. They don’t believe in promoting procedures that don’t deliver real, tangible results. For this reason our clinic has chosen long-lasting options for improving volume, lines and texture using Botox or Dysport, dermal fillers and Microneedling with PRP. To address more serious complexion issues such as hyperpigmentation, acne, acne scars, sun damage, deeper wrinkles, and vascular disorders, we offer the powerful Halo fractional laser and BroadBand BBL Intense Pulsed Light devices by Sciton.
Furthermore, the deep penetrating face peel called Vi Peel offers patients another option for dealing with skin aging, pigmentation and texture concerns. Two formulations are available. One containing Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and Retin-A for deep exfoliation and resurfacing. The other, called Precision Plus, has the addition of Hydroquinone and Kojic acid to simultaneously address various types of pigment-related concerns such as age spots, melasma and acne scars.
After a certain level of correction has been achieved with the above modalities, a good home care plan can help maintain the skin’s health and youthful appearance over the long-term. Azala offers the highest quality medical-grade skin care products, including cleansers, toners, antioxidant serums, and retinols and Retin-A from reputable brands such Obagi, SkinCeuticals and Neocutis.
