It’s that time of year again... You know, when your skin begins to dry out with the change of seasons and is in need of a little extra TLC. So I found my way over to Beauty Bar Laser Clinic to try out their "HydraFacial" (HydraFacial MD®). As a long time client of Beauty Bar (and lover of a good facial) I had heard great things about the technique, so I was itching to try it out for myself!
The HydraFacial is known as "the working woman's facial", as it is not a lengthy treatment (only 30 minutes) that can be performed over ones' lunch hour with little to no visible redness for returning to work.
At the beginning of the treatment, my Beauty Bar technician, Judy, and I discussed my skincare regime and any concerns I may have. I am a loyal user of SkinCeuticals, which has yielded considerable improvements to the condition and texture of my skin over the last year by using both morning & night. I buy all my SkinCeutical products from the Beauty Bar, as well as participate in their "Skin Club" loyalty program (buy ten SkinCeutical products, get one select product free).
Judy was impressed with my dedication to my skincare routine and upon doing my skin analysis noted that the overall condition of my skin was good; my pore size for most areas of my face was normal (other than some clogged pores in my t-zone area), I had no broken capillaries and only some light sun damage on my cheekbones, just under my eyes, that I need to be mindful of covering from now on when applying my SkinCeuticals sunscreen.
She then explained that during my HydraFacial treatment she would be focusing on working on the dead skin cells as well as the live skin cells, unclogging the pores in my t-zone area and hydrating the skin. And with that, the treatment began. Here’s a breakdown of the process...
And I have to say, it was a truly enjoyable process! Painless and brief but effective!
*Please note: This facial is not an aromatherapy or relaxation facial. This facial is designed to improve your skin's overall health.
And here is the result...
... a gorgeous glowing complexion! I highly recommend this facial to everyone and anyone!
This facial is suitable for all skin-types. I left with my skin feeling well cleansed, fresh and supple to the touch due to the rejuvenating and hydrating process achieved by the HydraFacial. Book your HydraFacial appointment at the Beauty Bar Laser Clinic; and be sure to tell them GenerationYYZ sent you!
Until next time… Enjoy!
