Dr. Dean L. Johnston, named one of the area's top plastic surgeons in 2010 by Orlando Magazine, and his team of skilled specialists revitalize visages through cooling HydraFacial technology suitable for all skin types. The Premier HydraFacial helps to remedy wrinkles, brown spots, and vestigial bunny ears by vacuuming pores and extracting impurities with an ultramodern HydraFacial MD device that uses a patented HydroPeel tip. Unlike microdermabrasion systems, the gadget's spiral design uses multiple abrasive edges to exfoliate the skin several times as it passes over faces, simultaneously bathing the epidermis in hydrating and moisturizing serums. Using the same face-saving technology, the glycolic HydraFacial infuses human frontispieces with glycolic acids that penetrate into the skin and stimulate cell regeneration by offering time and a half to collagen producers. HydraFacials take approximately 30 minutes, and for an additional fee, patients may upgrade their treatments with personalized serums.
