Summer is a time of fun, enjoyment of summer baths and relaxation, which however can cause damage to our skin. The combination of heat, humidity and increased Ultraviolet (UV) Radiation exposure can lead to clogged pores, acne breakouts and uneven skin tone and texture. That’s why advanced facial cleansing by experts during summer is essential to maintain a fresh and glowing complexion. Among the many options available, the HydraFacial and AquaFacial treatments have emerged as the ultimate solutions for achieving glowing and rejuvenated skin.

Facial cleansing with the Hydrafacial treatment

Hydrafacial is an innovative face cleansing and impressive skin rejuvenation treatment that is gaining more and more popularity. It is a non-invasive multi-step process designed to cleanse, exfoliate, remove impurities from the pores and simultaneously hydrate the skin in an extremely effective way. Each Hydrafacial treatment begins with three simple steps, which are then enriched with absolute personalization according to the needs of each skin. In the first step, deep cleaning and exfoliation with a mild peeling is done. Sebum is then removed from the pores with painless gentle suction. Finally, deep hydration takes place, where nutrients are applied to the surface of the skin according to the needs of each individual patient.

The treatment is applied to address a number of skin needs including fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, loss of elasticity and firmness, redness, dehydration, clogged or enlarged pores and acne. In fact, a concentrated booster can be added to the Hydrafacial treatment, which can target specific skin needs and concerns in order to achieve optimal results.

Facial cleansing with the AquaFacial treatment

The innovative Aquafacial treatment delivers glowing, rejuvenated skin in just 3 steps. The treatment begins with a thorough cleansing of the skin. This deeply cleanses the skin and removes dead skin cells. Painless mechanical suction is then applied to drain sebum and clean pores, leaving the skin fresh and clean while hydrating the skin. Finally, the AquaFacial treatment nourishes and hydrates the skin by applying a personalized serum with antioxidants and other skin-beneficial ingredients for ultimate radiance and nourishment. This last step promotes the health and deep hydration of the skin and maximizes the results of the treatment. In fact, at Dr. Skolarikou’s practice, AquaFacial treatment is magically combined with the innovative SKINCEUTICALS protocols, the number one line of pharmaceutical cosmetics in Europe and America!

Combination of HydraFacial and AquaFacial with injectable treatments

Both HydraFacial and AquaFacial are great options for achieving healthy and glowing skin during the summer and all year round. To enhance the effect and further target specific skin issues, the advanced facial cleansing with the HydraFacial and AquaFacial treatments can also be combined with injectable treatments, for even more enhanced results with an impressive duration over time. The Plastic Surgeon in Athens Dr. Maria Skolarikou, according to the personalized protocols she applies, combines these two treatments with autologous mesotherapy, Skinboosters, hyaluronic acid fillers and injectable botulinum toxin.
