As we age, our skin loses its natural elasticity. As a result of repeated exposure to UV light from the sun, which can cause long-term changes to the skin’s collagen, it can seem like an uphill battle to maintain healthy, youthful skin. Combined with a regime of at-home skincare, regular HydraFacial treatments with Dr. Ellen Gendler will have you feeling and looking your best with HydraFacial’s patented three-step technology.
A regular in New York Magazine’s Best Doctors lists, Dr. Gendler is a Board-Certified dermatologist and leading authority in cosmetic dermatology. She regularly consults for pharmaceutical and Fortune 500 companies and is highly regarded by both her patients and the scientific community.
What a HydraFacial treats
Because we produce 1% less collagen per year after the age of 20, steps need to be taken to ensure the skin maintains its natural strength and glow. HydraFacial treatments address a range of common skin concerns, including:
- Brown spots
- Oily skin
- Uneven skin tone or texture
- Enlarged pores
Prior to your consultation at her NYC office, Dr. Gendler will undertake a thorough assessment of your skin and will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan, including whether HydraFacial is an appropriate treatment for you.
How HydraFacial works
HydraFacial’s patented technology makes a quick and painless treatment that cleanses, extracts, and hydrates in a three-step process:
1. Cleanse + Peel – a new layer of skin is revealed with gentle cleansing and resurfacing.
2. Extract + Hydrate – HydraFacial’s patented automated vortex suction system removes buildup and clears out pores, and nourishes the skin with exclusive Beta-HD™and Antiox+™ serums.
3. Fuse + Protect – your skin is further infused with antioxidants and peptides to enhance from the inside out. Other revitalizing serums and solutions chosen by Dr. Gendler will be included to address your specific skin concerns.
The ideal candidate
Because HydraFacial is gentle and non-invasive, it can be used on most skin types and colors for anyone who wishes to elevate their skincare routine. This includes people with sensitive skin. However, this treatment is not suitable for those currently experiencing rashes, sunburns, and those with rosacea. If you are currently taking the medication isotretinoin for acne, you may need clearance by your physician before having HydraFacial treatments.
Dr. Gendler will consult with you on whether HydraFacial treatments should be included in your personalized treatment plan.
Personalized care with Dr. Gendler
One of the benefits of the HydraFacial is the way each session can be personalized for your specific skin concerns and goals. As part of your thorough skin assessment, Dr. Gendler will determine which specialized serums will be included in your HydraFacial treatments.
You will also receive advice and direction on any products to use at home to supplement your treatment plan, as well as other cosmetic or medical treatments available to you, such as laser hair removal, injectables or Botox, Dysport, Xeomin or Jeuveau.
What to expect with HydraFacial
As part of Dr. Gendler’s skin assessment, you will be advised on any actions you may need to take prior to your HydraFacial treatment, including refraining from tanning beds(ALWAYS!) or avoiding using any exfoliation treatments.
HydraFacials have no downtime. In fact, you’ll leave Dr. Gendler’s Manhattan office feeling refreshed and glowing. As with prior to your treatment, Dr. Gendler may advise you to avoid treatments such as peels or microdermabrasion for a certain amount of time, as well as waxing and heat, such as hot showers, sauna, and intense cardio.
