Hydrating Anti-Aging Facial
The hydrating anti-aging facial uses products containing glycolic acid to lift away dulling aging layers of dead cells and debris to reveal younger looking skin.
What is Glycolic Acid?
Glycolic acid is an alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) that naturally occurs in sugar cane and fruits. Other common AHAs include lactic acid and citric acid.
The acid helps to separate the connections between skin cells in the outer layers of skin to artificially speed up cell turnover and expose fresh, young cells.
Glycolic acid also has the power to stimulate the production of collagen, a protein that supports the skin’s firmness, plumpness, and elasticity. Aging slows down collagen production, contributing to poor skin health. Regular use of glycolic acid products and receiving a hydrating anti-aging facial can help prevent collagen breakdown.
Benefits of Glycolic Acid Products
Glycolic acid helps to:
- Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
- Minimize the appearance of pores
- Fight acne
- Remove dead skin cells

- Address sun damage
- Fade minor hyperpigmentation
- Brighten complexion

Glycolic acid is also safe to use for new mothers.
Signs of Aging Skin
Young, healthy skin is elastic, resilient, and effortlessly radiant. Over time, skin loses its elasticity, plumpness, and radiance, requiring religious cleansing, moisturizing, and professional skin care treatment to minimize the signs of aging; these signs can include:
- Crow’s feet
- Wrinkling around the eyes
- Liver spots
- Drooping eyelids
- Dry skin
- Frown lines
- Brow furrows
- Sagging skin
- Rough skin
- Wrinkles around the mouth
- Deep-set wrinkles in the forehead
Benefits of a Hydrating Anti-Aging Facial
A professional hydrating anti-aging facial can help delay and minimize the signs of aging. Other benefits of a hydrating facial include softer and smoother skin, minimized appearance of wrinkles, and a youthful glow.
The goal of a hydrating anti-aging facial is to provide healing and hydration to the skin while stimulating and rejuvenating skin cells deep beneath the surface. After treatment, patients will enjoy younger looking skin nourished by powerful anti-aging ingredients.
What to Expect During Treatment
At the beginning of a hydrating anti-aging facial, a Medicis Medical Spa skincare professional will carefully evaluate the patient’s skin for signs of aging and ask about skin concerns and goals.
Next, the esthetician will cleanse the patient’s skin to remove any traces of make-up and surface-level impurities. They will then use powerful enzymes to perform a thorough exfoliation that will remove dead skin cells. This will leave the patient’s skin feeling soft and smooth.
A gentle massage action will help activate the active ingredients and encourage the skin to absorb them. The skincare professional will then apply a mask to minimize the signs of aging by tightening and toning the skin. A broad spectrum SPF will also be applied to protect the skin from UV exposure.
The esthetician will provide skincare routine tips and recommend products that could help the patient maintain vibrant, and youthful skin. The key to maintaining youthful and healthy skin is persistent daily care and regular professional treatment.
