Here at Paragon Plastic Surgery and Med Spa the HydraFacial is ideal for all skin types and targets hyperpigmentation, oily/congested pores, fine lines, and wrinkles. With no down time, it leaves your skin glowing and looking healthier in about 30 minutes. For a standard HydraFacial there are four steps.
Step 1: Cleansing and exfoliation. The hand piece gently glides along the skin using a Vortex-Exfoliation combined with the Activ-4 serum that removes dead skin cells. The key ingredients are glycolic and lactic acid, algae extract that calms  and soothes and yeast extract that firms and smoothes the appearance of fine lines.
Step 2: Acid peel. A mixture of glycolic and salycilic acid delivers the benefits of a peel without the post-peel scaling. It also helps to break up dirt and clogged pores.

Step 3: Extractions. Instead of performing manual extractions, the HydraFacial uses a Vortex-Suction that acts as a vacuum to clean out pores with the help of the Beta-HD serum. This serum uses honey extract that adds a boost of hydration and anti-bacterial benefits, Spirea Ulmaria Flower extract that soothes and calms and salicylic acid gently exfoliates and aids in extractions.
Step 4: Serum application. The Antiox+ serum is now delivered to nourish and protect the skin with Antioxidants like Horse Chestnut Seed, Green Tea and Arnica Flower Extracts. TonePerfect Complex addresses skin tone by reducing melanin production and preventing the appearance of brown spots and discoloration. It also instantly firms and tightens. Hyaluronic Acid helps to plump and deeply hydrate and Earth Mineral Peptides boost collagen and elastin production to help eliminate fine lines. Sunscreen is then applied and you on your way to healthy, radiant skin.
With just one treatment you can visibly see that your skin is more hydrated and youthful.  Monthly treatments are recommended for best results. Let Dr. Mark Bishara and his staff guide you on your journey to healthy skin with the help of the HydraFacial MD.

Hydration and the Body

The human body makes up 60-70% of our body weight. Keeping our bodies well hydrated plays a crucial role in our health and well being. Water washes through our organs to bring nutrients to cells and moisture to tissues and aiding in flushing away waste and toxins. When the body runs low on water as dehydration sets in fatigue can set in. We lose water when we breathe, sweat, urinate or have bowel movements, exercise or strenuous activity, and when we’re sick with vomiting and diarrhea. Your body’s level of hydration can affect everything from your mood to your productivity. Dehydration can cause headaches, muscle weakness and lightheadedness. A few glasses of water can make you feel better in no time.

To keep your body hydrated, it is recommended that drinking half an ounce of fluid daily for each of your body weight. Take your body weight and divide it by two and that will equal the amount in ounces of water you need daily. Some ways to tell if you are hydrated is if your urine is pale or colorless, quenched thirst, or feeling of overall wellness. It is also recommended that you drink 2 cups of water before physical activity and ½ cup every 15 minutes during activity.

Drinking the adequate amount of water is important in keeping the skin hydrated giving you a radiant, younger looking complexion. Dehydration can make skin lack luster and a natural glow and can exacerbate common dermatological conditions like eczema. Using a topical moisturizer will help to seal the moisture in your skin. Other things you can do to help keep moisture in your skin are taking lukewarm showers, pat skin dry, and apply moisturizer with a damp cloth.

Eating foods rich in water can also help hydrate your body and improve the look and texture of your skin. If you’re like me and plain water doesn’t do it for you, I like to squeeze fresh lemon or line in my water or even add Crystal Light. Other ways to stay hydrated are by eating fresh fruits, vegetables, and eating soups. Some juicy fruits to look for are apples, kiwi, watermelon, papaya, strawberries, and any other type of berry. Cooking vegetables will take out the natural moisture and hydration. You want to eat green vegetables like bok choy, celery, cucumbers, green salad, spinach, cabbage and broccoli. Soups that are broth and water based are a great source of water. Stay away from sodas, which actually dehydrate the body. Thus drinking plenty of water can wash off all the problems to make your mind, body, and skin shine with health.
