Healthy, luminous skin without the risk and downtime: HydraFacials in Perrysburg and Fremont, OH

A “facial” is shorthand for those common and popular skin treatments customized to address each patient’s concerns. They may involve masks or professional tools to trigger renewed collagen production, lift dead skin cells, soften fine lines and folds, cleanse clogged pores, and inject moisture back into the skin. The result is a glowing, healthy, rejuvenated face looking back at you in the mirror!

Led by board-certified medical and cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Hope Mitchell at Mitchell Dermatology in Perrysburg and Fremont, OH, we are pleased to offer an exciting “twist” on the standard facial: HydraFacials.

HydraFacial MD® explained 

A standard category of dermatological treatment is “resurfacing.” The skin may be resurfaced through mechanical means like dermabrasion and microdermabrasion, chemicals (chemical peels), or light-based devices such as laser resurfacing. The idea is to promote new skin cells, bringing fresh skin to the surface. When dead skin cells build up, your skin may look tired, lackluster, and “thirsty” and feel dry to the touch. A consultation at our office can help us determine the best treatment to resurface your skin, as chemical peels alone can vary considerably in terms of the types of ingredients used to put your brightest, healthiest face forward. 

Advanced resurfacing techniques often get dramatic results without the risks of side effects and complications associated with earlier-generation systems and methods. They also require little to no downtime and demands on your body associated with healing. The HydraFacial MD® by Edge Systems can be completed in just four straightforward steps and within a 30-minute timeframe. 

  • First Step – We apply a special serum using a pen-like device. This process both cleanses the skin and exfoliates, removing dead skin cells. This step also “preps” the skin for the other steps and products involved with treatment. 
  • Second Step – We apply glycolic acid- and salicylic acid-based solutions to gently lift those substances that clog the pores. This chemical resurfacing is so light and safe that you won’t experience lingering post-treatment peeling!
  • Third Step – Our specialized applicator uses light-touch suction to remove impurities. There is no uncomfortable or cumbersome picking at your face. 
  • Fourth Step – With your face clear and smooth, we add skin boosters such as antioxidants. They deeply penetrate the skin for enhanced hydration. We can also discuss adding brighteners and wrinkle repair products to your customized treatment. 

Patients can see an instant improvement in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, lax skin, uneven tone, brown spots, leathery texture, dull complexion, oiliness, visible pores, and advanced signs of aging. There is no discomfort, no downtime, and no tedious prep and care before and after treatment.
