Are you a woman with a plan? A treatment plan to be exact? At HintMD, we firmly believe everyone should get on a plan with their doctor or derm… and stay on it. You might think you’re doing your skin the world of good by ‘investing’ in the latest miracle cream from Nordstrom, or dabbling in a one-facial-suits-all at your local beauty spa, but can you honestly say that either of these offer real, visible results?
Come on, you’re better than that.
Instead, sign up for a beauty membership with your aesthetic expert and with a perfectly curated blend of in-office facial treatments, injectables and medical-grade skincare, beautiful skin is well within your reach.
Take the HydraFacial MD for example. While regular facials might offer a relaxing experience and make your skin feel and look better for a grand total of 24 hours, a HydraFacial offers so much more than this. It can be tailored for specific concerns, suits all skin types, offers immediate AND long-term benefits and in terms of visible results? Well, it beats regular facials hands down. Don’t 100 percent believe us? We totally appreciate that, which is why he hooked up with Terrie Absher, licensed medical esthetician and founder of Total Glow Wellness in Menlo Park, California for further proof…
Q. Hey Terrie, we hear you’re a HydraFacial fan. In short, can you tell us why?
A. ‘Easy – HydraFacials are great for all types of skin. Not only are they fabulous for teens with acne issues, but they offer benefits for absolutely everyone, including those with mature skin concerns such as hyperpigmentation, fine lines, textural issues and acne.’
Q. OK, so what are the major benefits of having regular HydraFacials?
A. ‘Well, it sounds simple, but firstly your skin will be clean. This helps any skincare products penetrate the skin more effectively and is particularly vital for acne sufferers who want to get ahead of the congestion that leads to break outs.
HydraFacials also visibly lighten uneven pigmentation, smooth fine lines, improve texture and refine enlarged pores.
But the benefits don’t stop there…
The superior exfoliation process also hydrates your skin and is truly phenomenal – honestly, nothing works better.
The extraction modality removes congestion gently, so your skin is clean without irritation or redness.
Added antioxidants leave your skin soft and hydrated, giving it an unctuous look and feel.
And most importantly, a Hydrafacial will leave your skin with an amazing discernible glow that reflects its vitality and good health!’
Q. Ideally, how often should someone receive a HydraFacial in order to reap the benefits?
A. ‘I recommend clients have a treatment at least once a month, but there are some skin types and concerns that benefit greatly from once a week or bi-monthly.’
Q. Are there any at-home skincare requirements you’d recommend in order to optimize results?
A. ‘Absolutely, an at-home routine is essential for helping any professional treatment results last longer. You should always adopt a beneficial cleansing routine, as well as products prescribed for your specific skin concerns.’
Q. Thanks Terrie. Lastly, do you have any other helpful advice or tips?
A. ‘Try to visit your aesthetician as regularly as possible for Hydrafacial appointments – this will help your skin continue to improve. We are always happy to provide one-off treatments, but when they’re regularly scheduled as part of a beauty plan, we see a significant increase in improvement rather than simple maintenance of your skin.
Also, remember you want your at-home skincare to be as effective as possible, so you need clean skin and all the congestion removed for optimal penetration of products. A HydraFacial is the perfect way to do this… and more!’
