HydraFacial™ = Skin Health For Life™
Skin Health For Life™ is our philosophy of not just improving your appearance, but actually restoring youthful, healthy skin. Skin health is a lifestyle. The HydraFacial™ helps to improve the quality of your skin, helping to make it healthy.
Free Radicals & The Role of Antioxidants
Every day we are exposed to the elements – stress, pollution, toxins, and most importantly, sunlight. These are known as free radicals, and they are the root of skin damage and aging. Free radicals destroy the chemical makeup of our skin cells, preventing them from functioning properly, causing our skin to deteriorate.
The most natural defense against free radical damage is antioxidants – they neutralize free radicals, restoring and protecting skin from damage. Antioxidants can be found in vitamins like A and E, or in plant extracts like white tea, rosemary, and horse chestnut seed. Antioxidants are vital in the pursuit for healthy skin.
This is why the HydraFacial™ is so important – not only does it remove surface damage such as dead skin cells and impurities, but it also replenishes the skin with antioxidants through Vortex-Fusion®, the most advanced application of nutrients to the skin.
