How to use hydrodermabrasion to target different skin concerns?

Hydrodermabrasion is quickly becoming a popular skin care treatment for restoring skin's natural radiance. But what exactly is it?

At its most basic level, hydrodermabrasion involves using peeling solutions and suction to remove dead skin cells, exfoliate the skin, and improve circulation. However, there's far more to this treatment.
By combining the power of active ingredients with exfoliation, hydrodermabrasion can deeply cleanse the skin and stimulate collagen production, leaving the skin complexion clearer, brighter, and revitalized.
Whether your client wants to combat fine lines, reduce hyperpigmentation, or achieve a more even skin tone, hydrodermabrasion is a highly effective and non-invasive technology worth investing in.

Today, we will explore the possible skin health solutions we can achieve with hydrodermabrasion based on the most common skin concerns.

Far beyond aesthetics

The role of our skin is complex and isn't purely aesthetic. Skin is the body's largest organ and undergoes change throughout life. It is our most powerful protective layer, shielding us from environmental hazards, UV light, bacteria and toxins.

When we expand our practice with new treatments, such as Hydrodermabrasion, we need to understand the structure of our skin and the possible positive outputs.
Every aesthetic practitioner knows that the biggest enemies of skin health are sun exposure and oiliness. Still, paying attention to these perils can be easy, eventually leading to skin damage and unsatisfactory conditions.

Oil blocks the sebaceous glands, creating the potential for acne and rosacea and ideal conditions for bacterial growth. Sun exposure causes most facial wrinkles and age spots, which patients often consider 'typical ageing'. Over time, ultraviolet light damages the elastin fibres in the skin. Both threats are easily managed with skincare routine and hydrodermabrasion, which can improve overall skin health.
While almost every aesthetic treatment claims to rejuvenate the skin, only a few have a solid effect. And one of them is Hydrodermabrasion.
Although this treatment was created for exfoliation and deep cleansing of the skin, with proper peeling solution with active ingredients, this treatment brings results beyond this purpose.
To understand better, we need to learn more about our skin structure.

Skin Anatomy: Structure and Function

The top sublayer of the epidermis is the stratum corneum. The epidermis is the most superficial layer of the skin and provides the first barrier of protection from the invasion of substances into the body. The epidermis is an elastic layer on the outside that is continually being regenerated. It includes the following:

⭐️ Keratinocytes - the primary cells of the epidermis formed by cell division at its base. New cells continually move towards the surface. As they move, they gradually die and become flattened.

⭐️ Corneocytes - the flattened dead keratinocytes that together make up the very outer layer of the epidermis is called the stratum corneum or horny layer. This protective layer is continually worn away or shed.

⭐️ Melanocytes – produce the pigment melanin that protects against UV radiation and gives skin its colour.
Our dermis is the middle layer of skin in your body. It has many different purposes, including protecting your body from harm, supporting your epidermis, feeling different sensations and producing sweat and hair. The dermis is held together by a protein called collagen. This layer gives skin flexibility and strength. The dermis contains the following:
  • Blood vessels
  • Lymph vessels
  • Hair follicles
  • Sweat glands
  • Collagen bundles
  • Fibroblasts
  • Nerves
  • Sebaceous glands

Subcutaneous fat layer (hypodermis)
The subcutaneous fat layer is the deepest layer of skin. It consists of a network of collagen and fat cells. It helps conserve the body's heat and protects the body from injury by acting as a shock absorber.

Hydrodermabrasion treatment for the most favourable outcome requires utilising precisely designed peeling solutions and serums.
You should explore the skin barrier defence systems because the ability of any non-invasive treatment or topically applied formulations to perform their respective actions will be determined by their ability to transverse these barrier defence systems.

If specific features of a formulation are met, the likelihood of the active ingredients reaching their targeted site is greatly maximised.
The skin has a number of lines of defence against penetration of foreign objects and substances, essentially rendering the skin resistant to absorption of substances the body considers alien.
The three main barriers are defined as the natural microflora, the epidermal barrier, and finally, the immune system, with several subsystems within each.

For that reason, Zemits developed a potent hydro-peeling solution linked to skin structure and function and specific concerns that could be improved by combining hydrodermabrasion and professional cosmetics.

Active ingredients to target skin concerns related to Texture

Two factors control the skin's texture; one influences the epidermis or external factors, and the other the dermis or internal factors.

Epidermal. The renewal of the stratum corneum is the external factor and is responsible for the skin's outer appearance (smoothness). When the desquamation of the skin is impaired or abnormal, there is a build-up of dead cells, which require deep exfoliation. When these conditions are present, the surface texture and appearance of the skin change. Hydrodermabrasion gently, but effectively exfoliates the skin with proper solution.

Dermal. Cellular renewal and connective tissue formation in the papillary and reticular layers of the dermis are also responsible for the outward appearance and texture of the skin.
Individual treatment results may vary depending on the unique physiological characteristics of the patient and the number of procedures in the course of treatment.
Here, the structural integrity, or the form of the soft tissue, is determined by the presence of collagen and elastin. These are the internal factors. It is in the lower layers that the most cellular activity occurs. Consequently, the client can benefit from hydrodermabrasion as treatment will positively affect the cellular division and the primary functions of these layers.
Most common texture related skin problems that bring client to aestheticians are:

  • Hyper-keratinisation
  • Open/closed comedones (Non inflammatory acne)
  • Collagens loss of integrity & thin skin density
For perfect skin texture Zemits designed Zemits HydroClear to deeply cleanse and soften the skin with active ingredients for smooth, young and radiant skin.

    Exfoliator to destroy the bond between dead cells for natural skin regeneration during the treatment, increasing its elasticity and resilience.
    Improves skin tone, restores damaged cell membranes, accelerates intracellular metabolism, and soothes irritation.

Active ingredients to target skin concerns related to Colour

Most common tone related skin problems that bring client to aestheticians are skin conditions that alter the colour of skin. As with skin texture, internal and external factors control the colour of the skin.

  • Epidermal. Pigmentation plays a major role in the colour of the skin, and conditions related to the abnormal production of melanin (hyper-pigmentation and hypo-pigmentation) are not uncommon.
By understanding melanogenesis and its synergy with the keratinocyte, you can ascertain the cause of pigmented skin conditions and implement an effective treatment protocol with hydrodermabrasion technology.

  • Dermal. Microcirculation plays a considerable role in the overall colour of the skin, with the general condition and health of the skin reflected in that colour. The efficiency of respiration, transpiration, elimination of cellular wastes and cutaneous blood flow are all indicated by the colour of the skin. Vacuum suction during HD treatment improves blood circulation, promoting healthy, glowing skin tone.

Effective active ingredients in solutions:

    Salicylic acid is a gentle exfoliator that removes impurities and excess sebum, decongests pores, reduces inflammation, and exfoliates dead cells.
    Willow bark extract kills acne-causing bacteria and balances pore secretion, which prevents future breakouts.
    Plant extract that has soothing properties, antioxidant qualities and serves as a hydrating agent.
    In addition to anti-inflammatory and antioxidant powers, turmeric can boost microcirculation within the skin, making skin complexion stronger and more supple.
    Known as an anti-inflammatory agent that successfully restores the skin's energy balance, improves sun-damaged skin, boosts antioxidant levels, and improves skin tone.

Active ingredients to target skin concerns related to Secretion

Numerous factors control the skin's secretions, some crossing over from dermal to epidermal.

  • Epidermal. The fluids found on the surface of the skin (acid mantle) are secreted from the sebaceous and sudoriferous glands, in conjunction with the epidermal lipids (bilayers) and the natural moisturising factor (NMF) make up the first line of skin barrier defence. The excess oil production also forms a protective barrier that helps retain enough water and moisturise the skin. By slowing down transepidermal water loss, the acid mantle plays a major role in retaining water, slowing evaporation, and thus maintaining epidermal hydration.

  • Dermal. The fluids of the lower levels (interstitial/extracellular) are equally crucial to the health of the epidermis as they are to provide support for the fibrous tissues collagen and elastin.
The lymphatic and circulatory systems regulate the hydration of these lower levels. These systems work in synergy to preserve fluid and nutritional balance and are a major part of the skin defence function.
