SkinWave Hydrofacial

Revitalizing Ingredients in, Impurities out

What is the SkinWave Hydrofacial?

This treatment can hydrate, cleanse, exfoliate and enhance, providing a glowing and hydrated complexion. The SkinWave Hydrofacial provides the most advanced dermal infusion therapy available to your skin. Contour Aesthetics + Wellness is proud to be the only practice in Charleston that offers this innovative treatment. We pride ourselves on providing the best to our clients, and SkinWave is just that. 

SkinWave combines an aqua-delivery system with skin revitalizing solutions and cutting-edge hydrogen therapy for a multi-dimensional facial. During this procedure, Alpha Hydroxy Acid, Beta Hydroxy Acid, Hyaluronic Acid, and hydrogen are infused into the skin, while gentle exfoliation and extraction remove impurities.

How does the SkinWave Hydrofacial work?

The SkinWave Hydrofacial is a relaxing multi-step facial. The SkinWave uses AHA and BHA to exfoliate and deep clean the skin followed by hydrogen therapy and hyaluronic acid to hydrate and moisturize the skin. Because this facial is fully customizable, the volume of the solutions can be adjusted to treat your specific skin care needs. Microcurrent, or relaxing vibrations, open your pores to enhance absorption of these solutions while LED treatment helps build collagen and reduce inflammation. The final step uses facial contouring rollers to assist with lymphatic massage to flush out impurities, relax muscles and tighten the skin.

Am I a good candidate for the SkinWave Hydrofacial?

The SkinWave is an excellent treatment for all skin types. Ideal candidates for the SkinWave Hydofacial are patients looking to exfoliate, hydrate, or deep clean the skin; or those wishing to maintain and enhance results from their other aesthetic treatments. The SkinWave is an excellent maintenance step to invest in before other medical aesthetic services such as Virtue RF, Subnovii, or even a chemical peel. However, if you are currently dealing with a skin condition like sunburn, it’s best to let your skin heal completely before scheduling your SkinWave treatment.

What are the benefits of the SkinWave Hydrofacial?

The SkinWave Hydrofacial provides many benefits that can revitalize the texture and tone of your skin. It cleans, exfoliates, hydrates, and nourishes the treated areas. The SkinWave can also help control acne and oil; repeated treatments can tighten and brighten your skin. It’s also relaxing; patients love the immediate glow following this treatment.

Alpha Hydroxy Acid

Alpha Hydroxy Acid or AHA is known for exfoliating dead skin cells. When used in the SkinWave, this can serve as a mini chemical peel to brighten and smooth your skin.

Beta Hydroxy Acid

Beta Hydroxy acid or BHA is used to cleanse pores deeply. BHA is also great at regulating oil production and removing excess oil that builds upon the skin’s surface.

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic Acid is a popular ingredient in skin and hair care products because it’s so effective at hydrating. Hyaluronic Acid is also used to soothe inflammation and deeply moisturize skin.

What is recovery like, and are there any side effects?

Patients love the SkinWave Hydrofacial because it causes no negative side effects and requires minimal downtime. Immediately following your treatment it’s best to avoid makeup, heavy exercise and sun exposure, but you’ll notice you skin will appear healthier and more hydrated.

How many treatments should I get?

Although every patient is different, we typically recommend a series of three treatments for the best results. Most patients find that a monthly maintenance treatment will enhance their skin and help them maintain their results. When you schedule your appointment, your practitioner will design a treatment plan to help you maintain your optimal results.

What other treatments do you offer?

Once patients discover how great their skin looks after a SkinWave facial, they are interested in other services we offer.
