My quest for amazing skin series ~ Part One: The Hydrafacial

Hello to all my Curvy Beauties! I am coming to you with the first part in a new series of articles focused on a subject that is extremely important. That subject of course is you skin! I am going to be reviewing different procedures for you and give you an idea of what to expect and also the results.  I am also working with one of the top medi spas located in Miami.  Miami Plastic Surgery is one of the premiere offices for the best in plastic surgery as well as non surgical and skin therapies.

They also offer the best in products for all your skincare needs. This is truly an office known for having the most advanced technological systems and therapy treatments.  The doctors are unsurpassed in their quality of work and are definitely some of the most respected in the country.  Their name is synonymous in high end aesthetics and I am so happy to be sharing my experiences with you throughout this series of articles. When first approaching the office to work on this article, I was truly excited because I had done some research and learned how incredible and committed this team is to their mission. Founded by a team of Board Certified physicians, Miami Plastic Surgery is distinguished by the highest quality of personal service, commitment to safety and patient confidentiality, and superior results that encompass the entire body. The staff is impeccable in their courteous and knowledge of  everything within the office. They are dedicated to catering to their clients and offering the most advanced systems for the patient. Their specialized services are as individual as the patients we serve. Each patient is presented with options that range from minimally-invasive procedures such as anti-aging therapy and endoscopic techniques to comprehensive cosmetic surgery. Our initial recommendations often involve modest enhancements. I was very interested in working with this office in regards to trying out the facial treatments.  I went in for my for appointment for what is called the “Hydrafacial”, this is what is considered the ultimate in advanced skin care.


I was introduced to the medical aesthetician Kelley Nathan, whose years of  knowledge and expertise were instantly apparent in her explanation and suggestions for my skin type. She was amazing in her recommendations of products as well as in her flawless work.  She immediately put me at ease and was wonderful in explaining the detailed elements of the procedure. I was truly fascinated by everything I was learning. The room where the facial was taking place was beautiful and calming in its ambiance as was the rest of the office. The staff were extremely professional in their demeanor.  The best part about the hydrafacial experience is its feeling on the skin. It was cool and moisturizing while extremely cleansing. It felt like a tiny vacuum removing and cleaning everything out of my pores while keeping it moist throughout. I truly had not had a facial in a long time, so I was way overdue. Being in my late 30’s, it is imperative to know what you need to protect your skin type. It wasn’t until I proceeded to visit this office that I was made to understand what my skin really needed. I learned that although I may have thought that I had a more acne prone skin, that was not the case.  It was with the help of Kelley, that I was able to learn exactly how important it was to know what I was using and why.  Hear is an idea of what the actual procedure entails:

The HydraFacial is the newest breakthrough advancement in non-laser resurfacing. HydraFacial is the only hydradermabrasion procedure that combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration and antioxidant protection simultaneously, resulting in clearer, hydrated, rejuvenated, more beautiful skin with no discomfort or downtime. The treatment is soothing, moisturizing, non-invasive, non-irritating and immediately effective. The HydraFacial has been a favorite pre-red carpet treatment for the stars!

I was first introduced to this practice when I noticed it being listed in directory of Salons and Spas in Allure magazine.  It was then that I asked around the beauty community here in South Florida and heard wonderful things. I can truly recommend that you look into this procedure and if possible, check out this office. I left my appointment with a newfound fascination on how to take care of my skin now and in the future. My face itself was glowing and I loved how even my skin tone looked. I had an event that evening loved getting ready for it. I hardly needed any makeup and my complexion was gorgeous.  I will be using the products sent home with me for one month and then returning for an evaluation of how they work and my next facial. I will also be writing a review on the products sent home to me for you all. I also was referred to being a candidate for laser hair removal.  This will begin this week and their office has the most advanced system around. I will be sharing all this with you in my next part to the series so stay tuned! I hope you find this helpful and I look forward to what comes next in my quest for beautiful skin!
