Classic facials are out, MicroGen HF is in!
Facials are not a recent trend. Their history dates back to Ancient Egypt, where women and men would bathe in milk to keep their skin supple or they would apply egg whites to their faces before bed. Although they’ve been a crucial part of beauty routines for decades, facials have since evolved from what they were in Egyptian times. Over the years we have moved away from DIY treatments, and started to adopt more professional and effective skin purifying methods.
The evolution of facial treatments in the beauty industry can be compared to advancements in the car wash industry. Remember those old car washes, with the massive dirty brushes that would whip your car into a sudsy frenzy? Those dirty bristles would hold onto abrasive elements, ultimately scrubbing them even further into the car’s finish. This is similar to what happens to the skin during a traditional exfoliating facial treatment, where in some cases, over manipulation, hyperstimulation, incomplete pore cleansing, and occlusive oils can make the skin even worse.
As technology advanced, touchless car washes that provided a higher-level cleaning with a gentler approach were introduced. Much like how touchless technology has transformed the car wash industry, our doctors at Dermetics were looking for a more effective solution to the classic facial.
Their solution? The creation of our specially designed, combination treatment, the MicroGen HF. This uses three high end technologies synergistically: Microdermabrasion, Hydra Facial, and Laser Genesis across multiple different steps. This unique hybrid of treatments comes together to accentuate the benefits that each treatment brings individually.
Here’s how it works…
Cleanse: The technician first begins by cleansing the skin. This is done to ensure that any traces of dirt, oil, makeup, or sunscreen is removed.
Polish: After the cleanse is complete, we use our diamond tip microdermabrasion wand. This step gently polishes and removes the buildup of superficial skin cells. Think of it like cleaning your house- would you mop your floors without vacuuming first? This step clears surface skin cells so the next step can clarify and exfoliate even more efficiently.
Exfoliate: Next, a blend of gentle chemical exfoliants is applied to prepare the skin for a gentle chemical peel. A blend of glycolic and salicylic exfoliate acids loosen any remaining surface skin cells and deep clean the pores. Finally, gentle suction and a blend of Beta hydroxy acids (BHA’s for short) wash away dead skin cells and blackheads – this part is definitely the most satisfying!
Rejuvenate: Now it’s time for Laser Genesis. This step is what truly puts the treatment in a league of its own. This warm gentle laser feels like you are relaxing in the sun. It’s so comfortable some of our patients even fall asleep! But don’t let that fool you, it reaches deep into the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin and helps reduce redness leaving skin feeling plump and rejuvenated.
Infuse: Finally, we infuse a cocktail of antioxidants, helping to hydrate and boost the skin, giving it the perfect glow.
As always, we finish off your treatment by working together to develop a personalized skincare regimen made of the best medical grade skin-care to moisturize and ensure your beautiful new skin is protected.
All this, and no pain or downtime! It’s no wonder MicroGen HF has become one of our most popular treatments, and why this facial on steroids is another shining example of the Dermetics difference.
