In the world of cosmetic treatments, there are few so popular and effective as Hydrafacials and VI Peels. These facial treatments can peel back layers of dead skin, refresh the appearance, and give you back the brighter and more youthful face you remember. At You Only Younger, we’re turning back time in Sugar Land, TX with Hydrafacials and VI Peels.
Are Hydrafacials and VI Peels Right for Me?
One of the reasons both these treatments are so popular is that they are right for nearly everyone.
Is the Hydrafacial Right for Me?
The Hydrafacial was made to address all kinds of skin issues and to be safe for every skin type. It also offers noticeable results with no downtime or irritation. Even the most sensitive skin can safely enjoy a Hydrafacial. The Hydrafacial is right for you if you:
- Want to refresh and revitalize your skin
- Need to address hyperpigmentation and brown spots
- Have acne scars
- Want to minimize enlarged pores
- Need increase the elasticity and firmness of your skin
- Want to minimize fine lines and wrinkles
- Have sensitive skin
- Have oily skin
- Are a man
- Are a woman
- Want a facial that doesn’t hurt
- Need a facial to brighten your skin immediately
This facial can do it all, and it has customizable boosters to use that will address other concerns you might have, such as pigmentation problems, wrinkle prevention, rough skin texture, or dark spots and sun damage.
Are VI Peels Right for Me?
The VI Peel is useful for addressing lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin texture, but where it really shines is in fighting acne. In fact, it was originally created by Dr. Kalil as a way to treat his teen’s stubborn acne. There are five types of this amazing peel, and with so much variety, you can be sure there’s something here to address your concern. Consider the VI Peel line if you:
- Want to address hyperpigmentation
- Need to fight acne and inflammation
- Want to fight back against severe acne scarring
- Need to erase the signs of aging in the face
- Want brighter skin
- Are looking to improve your skin’s texture
- Are a man
- Are a woman
- Have a darker skin tone
Where other chemical peels pose a high risk of hyper pigmentation for those with olive, medium, or dark skin tones, the VI Peel line offers a safe and effective treatment.
Who Isn’t a Candidate?
Most people are great candidates for Hydrafacials and VI Peels. There are a few conditions, however, that could mean you should look for another treatment or wait a while before having treatment.
Contraindications for the Hydrafacial
If you’re pregnant, it’s best not to seek a Hydrafacial until after you’ve given birth. While there are no known dangers to your baby, there are also no studies showing the effects of the facial to the fetus, and in the absence of these studies, it’s always best to exercise the utmost caution.
If you are currently undergoing treatment for cancer or are suffering from herpetic rashes, severe inflammation to your face, or have a particularly severe outbreak of acne, the Hydrafacial might not be right for you at this time. Come talk to us about your options and we’ll help you find the perfect treatment for your concerns.
Contraindications for the VI Peel
As with the Hydrafacial, it’s best to avoid this treatment if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, and for the same reasons. Additionally, if you have an allergy to aspirin or phenol, let us know. If you’ve been treated with chemotherapy or radiation in the past six months, it’s best to wait until a bit more time has passed before getting a VI Peel. Finally, if you have any open wounds or active cold sores, allow them to heal before getting a peel.
What Is the Hydrafacial?
A Hydrafacial is performed somewhere in the world every 15 seconds. Why? Because it’s simply that good. It’s a medical-grade hydradermabrasion experience with a patented three-part process that does everything. It cleanses, exfoliates, and then infuses the skin with protective and healing serums.
Where traditional dermabrasion methods blast the skin with grit, often causing irritation and swelling in the process, this device uses water to vacuum out the pores while pushing in actives at the same time. It then delivers healing serums to brighten the skin or target specific skin issues. The result is bright, calm, beautiful skin.
What’s Great About It
It’s for Anyone
No matter what your age, gender, complexion, or skin concern, the Hydrafacial is safe and effective. Adults with wrinkles, teens with acne, people with sensitive skin that can’t handle traditional facials, and even those with flaky, pre-cancerous spots can all benefit from this treatment.
It’s Absolutely Consistent
The Hydrafacial machine controls the experience, so results are consistent every time. You’ll see the same great results every time you visit.
Extractions Don’t Hurt
No one likes the extractions portion of the facial. They hurt, and most of the time they cause redness or eruptions the next day that leave you feeling sore or worrying about how to cover it up with makeup. With the Hydrafacial, you’ll be simply amazed. Not only do extractions not hurt, but you will actually find the whole experience relaxing. And the next day? Clear skies as far as you can see.
You Get Instant Gratification
You don’t have to wait a week for redness to go down so you can see the results of your treatment. You don’t have to wait for scaling or flaking to finish before you see your bright, fresh skin. In 30 minutes, you’ve got the results, and there’s no downtime afterward.
The boosters are just one way of tailoring the experience to your particular needs. These come at the end and can do everything from infusing growth factors to battling acne scarring. But you can also choose the strength of your glycolic-salicylic acid, choose between blue light LED therapy for acne or red light for collagen-building, and even tone up or down the suction power to target different areas of the face or different concerns.
Other Procedures Pair Beautifully With It
You’ve already made an appointment and taken time out of your life to work on your face. Do you want to have to wait for recovery and downtime to be over and do that all over again to get another treatment? With the Hydrafacial, you can get all your treatments done on the same day, whether that’s Botox or fillers, chemical peels or IPL.
You Can Use It Anywhere
The Hydrafacial, despite the name, doesn’t just have to work on your face. You can get the same great benefits using it on your hands, neck, or chest.
What Is the VI Peel?
This medium strength peel is particularly effective on oily, congested skin with large pores, but it’s great for addressing all kinds of damage from the sun and the passage of time. It works by taking off the uppermost layer of skin and the top section of the dermal layer so both are replaced by fresh, new, bright skin.
What makes this peel special is the proprietary blend of special ingredients, including vitamin C and phenol, that get you faster, more dramatic results than other peels.
What Makes It Great
You Can Choose Your Peel
There are five types of peels available in the line, each designed to address a specific issue. Some are specifically more gentle, while others are extra strong for treating the signs of aging. Still others go after pigmentation issues with a vengeance, and the final two are specially designed to fight acne and acne scarring and damage.
The Results Are Fast
It only takes about a week to see your full results, which is blazingly fast for such a powerful peel.
You Can Treat Nearly Anything
What’s your concern? Is it fine lines and wrinkles? How about a dull complexion? Have you got too many dark spots and acne scars? Are you tired of constant breakouts or embarrassed by acne scarring? The VI Peels can treat all these concerns at the same time.
It’s As Effective as Many Lasers
Laser resurfacing treatments have their place, but many people are delighted to learn that a VI peel is a much less expensive and far more convenient way to treat all the same concerns, and just as effectively.
There’s Built-In Comfort
Other peels can be pretty uncomfortable, but the makers of the VI Peel took that into consideration when developing this treatment. This is a medium-strength peel that doesn’t feel like it, thanks to the built-in anesthetic.
You Can Use It Anywhere
The VI Peel can be used anywhere on the body you have a concern, from face to hands, neck to chest. You name it, the VI Peel can handle it.
You’re In and Out
This isn’t a time-consuming treatment. The whole appointment can be done in 30 minutes or less, including cleansing, layering the solution and waiting a short time for the peel to fully penetrate. Then we’ll put on some sunscreen and you can leave. Just wash it off about four hours later, and you can apply makeup right away if you want.
Results Are Dramatic
Even after just one peel, you’ll see amazing results. With that old, outer layer gone, you’ll see fresh new dermis and epidermis growing in its place, free of the scars, spots, and deep lines you had before. And when you have a series of peels, you’ll be absolutely amazed at the final results. While the total number you need will depend on your unique situation, most people are happy after two or three, and even the worst skin conditions can be largely cleared up after four.
