HydraFacials are an effective maintenance tool for any skincare routine. Penetrating through the epidermis (outer layer of skin) and into the dermis (deeper skin layers), the HydraFacial tool cleans, extracts, and hydrates your skin to create a fresh, beautiful glow.
Serum Superstars: 4 Booster Serums That Optimize HydraFacial Results
During your HydraFacial treatment, we incorporate booster serums to enhance the experience and overall effects. Personalized HydraFacial sessions using dermatologist-grade booster serums reduce or eliminate:
- Dry skin
- Oily or acne-prone skin
- Sun damage
- Uneven skin tone
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Enlarged or clogged pores
- Age spots
These serums are specifically formulated using innovative ingredient combinations, focusing on botanicals and enzymes that work together to nourish, treat, heal, and address some of the most common skin issues.
Today, we’d like to shine the spotlight on four of the booster serums we use most in our MedSpa. We consider these some of the top superstars in our skincare treatment line, especially when incorporated into a HydraFacial session.
Rozatrol Booster Serum
Rozatrol is formulated for clients with normal to dry skin, dry and sensitive skin, or skin conditions that cause excess redness (rosacea, surface capillaries, mild reactions to environmental triggers, etc). It is an ultra-mild exfoliator, removing dead skin cells from the skin’s surface while encouraging fresh cell turnover and reducing premature signs of aging.
Some of the Rozatrol booster serum’s active ingredients include Lactose, milk protein, and brassica oleracea italica extract (extracted from broccoli leaves). Lactose and milk proteins deliver a natural soothing effect, while the high levels of antioxidants found in brassica oleracea italica also offset the negative impacts of environmental skin sensitivities – including sun damage.
ZO-RRS²® is another powerful hitter in the Rozatrol Booster Serum ingredient list. This ingredient is a proprietary plant stem cell complex, also providing potent antioxidant benefits that reduce the signs of aging and catalyze new cell growth.
Growth Factor Booster Serum
Our Growth Factor booster serum minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles to restore skin health and vitality.
As its name suggests, it’s a powerful formula of high-quality ingredients, including clinically-proven strings of peptides, Vitamin C, and pure B12, that work intricately together to provide deep exfoliation benefits and then stimulate skin regeneration. Most routine facial and dermatology clients are familiar with one of the most powerful Growth Factor serum ingredients: hyaluronic acid (HA).
HA is produced by the body and found in the eyes, joints, and skin. In addition to working as a natural lubricant in the joints, HA acts as a skin elastin, allowing it to move, stretch, and minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Like collagen, HA levels decrease as we age, so putting HA back into the dermis increases skin’s elasticity, yielding a fresher, more youthful look. It also helps the skin retain moisture; just a quarter of a teaspoon of HA holds up to a gallon and a half of water!
Hyaluronic acid is also proven to increase skin healing and reduce scarring, so in addition to reducing facial wrinkles and lines, we often incorporate Growth Factor booster serums when clients want to reduce the appearance of inactive acne blemishes and scars.
DermaBuilder Booster Serum
Minimizes signs of aging and recharges skin with a patented combination of peptides. In addition to effectively reducing the fine lines and wrinkles common around the brow area, eyes, and mouth, DermaBuilder’s powerful peptide combinations smooth out uneven skin textures. These peptide combinations also improve skin elasticity.
Unlike many topical products that only provide temporary change on the skin’s surface layers, the HydraFacial DermaBuilder serum penetrates into the deep tissue layers where the peptides activate and stimulate new skin growth from the bottom up. Over a series of facial sessions, clients with uneven skin texture benefit from brand-new skin layers that are smoother and more even.
Britenol Booster Serum
The Britenol Booster Serum is effective for clients with uneven skin tone, particularly due to sun damage or dark spots, including melasma or freckles. This gentle serum is safe for sensitive skin, using a combination of brightening agents, like Bearberry extract and alpha arbutin.
Bearberry extract is derived from the leaves of the Uva Ursi plant. The extract contains arbutin, a skin-brightening ingredient that targets dark spots, hyperpigmentation, and irregular pigmentation resulting from scars. First, arbutin inhibits the production of melanosomes, which produce melanin and contribute to skin color. Second, arbutin interacts with tyrosinase, telling it to stimulate less melanin production. This results in brightening of the skin.
You may see bearberry extract referred to as “natural hydroquinone,” but this is a misnomer. While it offers the same brightening and skin tone regulation as hydroquinone, the two are completely unrelated. We appreciate bearberry extract’s more gentle, non-toxic skin brightening and evening benefits over hydroquinone’s potential side effects for some clients. Unlike hydroquinone, barberry extract is safe for all skin tones and types, and there is no risk of skin irritation or hyperpigmentation in darker skin tones.
As if that wasn’t enough, bearberry extract is also loaded with antioxidants that eliminate free radicals before they contribute to wrinkles. So HydraFacial Britenol booster serum is also a wrinkle buster. Finally, the addition of Vitamin C and an Alpha-Arbutin supplement provides exponential brightening and skin-tightening enhancements.
HydraFacials & Booster Serums Require Zero Downtime
Regardless of which serums we mix and match to address your concerns, HydraFacials are one of the safest and least invasive methods to achieve superior exfoliation, the treatment of current skin concerns, and subdermal stimulation and nourishment that generates fresh, younger-looking skin – all without any long-lasting redness, peeling, flaking, or tenderness.
In fact, little to no downtime is one of the benefits clients love best about HydraFacial sessions. You can schedule them the day before a special event or feel confident leaving the spa to run errands or head out on a date night. Clients with sensitive skin may experience some post-treatment redness, like a slight flush, but this typically disappears within a few hours or less.
We would never recommend a HydraFacial appointment if we determine your skin may be too sensitive or in the midst of an active flare-up to ensure you experience its ultimate benefits.
