Understanding Skin Damage

Free Radicals

Every day we are exposed to the elements of stress, pollution, toxins, and most importantly, sunlight. These are known as free radicals, and they are the root of skin damage and aging. Free radicals destroy the chemical makeup of our skin cells, preventing them from functioning properly, causing our skin to deteriorate.

UV rays are classified UVA (aging rays) and UVB (burning rays), and both are major concerns for skin health. UVA rays have the same damaging effects all day long, all year round. They penetrate the layers of your skin causing damage deep beneath the surface. UVB rays result in surface burns which can lead to discoloration and uneven skin tone.


The most natural defense against free radical damage is antioxidants – they neutralize free radicals, restoring and protecting skin from damage. Antioxidants can be found in vitamins like A and E, or in plant extracts like white tea, rosemary, and horse chestnut seed. Antioxidants are vital in the pursuit for healthy skin.

This is why the HydraFacial is so important – not only does it remove surface damage such as dead skin cells and impurities, but it also replenishes the skin with antioxidants through Vortex-Fusion, the most advanced application of nutrients to the skin.


The HydraFacial Daily Essentials provide you with detoxification, rejuvenation, and protection while targeting your specific skin concerns. The HydraFacial Daily Essentials are an extension of the treatment, maintaining and enhancing results between procedures. Each product is formulated with the same performing ingredients found in each in – office treatment. Together they are essential for achieving healthy skin.
