Honey, time marches on and eventually you realize it is marchin’ across your face. ~ Truvy, “Steel Magnolias”
Over the last few years, I’ve noticed that years of sleepless nights, endless carpools, and Nerf bullets are taking their toll on my face. I went from alive-and-thirty-five to flippin’ forty in what feels like the speed of sound. I’ve considered a peel, but am super nervous of the…well…peeling. Peels seem a little too invasive for me right now – I’m just not ready for the downtime – and I need a little something more than creams. So when our friends at Hunstad/Kortesis/Bharti (HKB) told us about their new Hydrafacial, a non-invasive, semi-relaxing facial that promises to cleanse, peel, extract, and hydrate skin, I was ALL IN. They were kind enough to provide me with a Hydrafacial in exchange for a review, and I couldn’t WAIT to tell Smartyland about it.
I was giddy with excitement the day of my facial. I hadn’t altered my schedule in anyway, so I was really hoping their promises of no downtime were true. My appointment was at HKB’s SouthPark office, which, in case you haven’t been, is simply gorgeous. My aesthetician was SO sweet and talked me through the whole process. I don’t have exceptionally dry or oily skin, but if you have some sort of specific skin need, she will talk you through the treatment process. The HydraFacial includes the patented 4-in-1 technology of Vortex-Cleansing, HydroPeel Exfoliation, Vortex-Extraction, and Vortex-Fusion and use four phases to cleanse, peel, extract and hydrate skin. It combines antioxidants, water, and skin nourishers, which include specialty serums chock full of potent peptides, hyaluronic acid, and antioxidants. It also vacuums out skin impurities, dead skin, and toxins all while you lie there relaxing.
You know how good it feels to get your carpets cleaned? Yea, this feels better because no one can stomp across your face with dirty shoes and mess the whole thing up. And, you’ll actually GLOW for at least week.
Here’s what the HydraFacial addresses:
– Enlarged Pores
– Congested and Oily Skin
– Brown Spots
– Skin Texture
– Vibrancy and Even Tone
– Elasticity and Firmness
– Wrinkles and Fine Lines
– Hyperpigmentation and Sun Damage
Simply put, your skin will look younger, brighter, firmer, plumper, and smoother – instantly! I left with a face cleaner and fresher than it’s been in years – or maybe ever. I definitely went about my day like nothing happened – no downtime at all. And, my skin totally glowed for a solid week. I had people giving me compliments on my skin, and I am NOT one of those people who gets skin compliments. My makeup went on smoother and looked better throughout the day.
I would highly recommend the Hydrafacial as part of your regular monthly skincare regiment or maybe as a special treat when you’re feeling a bit tired or have a big event. I will totally get it done again when I’m feeling the need to get pampered AND glow a bit ;-).
