I received a complimentary HydraFacial MD treatment to facilitate this review. All opinions are 100% my own.
I’m sure that like me, you can all immediately call to mind the episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills where Adrienne Maloof hosted a glamorous spa party complete with a Brandi Glanville-led cat fight and subsequent meltdown. While the overly dramatic commentary and tear-stained personalized bathrobes were entertaining, I was mostly focused on Adrienne’s arsenal of fancy schmancy skincare machinery. From laser and LED treatments to tanning booths and manicure stations, Adrienne’s home was transformed into a cutting edge spa. What particularly piqued my interest was the HydraFacial, a treatment that Adrienne loved so much that she purchased her very own machine.
3000 BC MedSpa in Chestnut Hill recently acquired its own HyrdraFacial MD, and invited me to visit the spa to try out the treatment. Obviously, I wasted no time in booking my appointment. When I arrived for my evening appointment, I was led to the serene lounge area (complete with adjacent outdoor zen garden) and served tea while I filled out my paperwork. Jennifer Miller, 3000BC’s Marketing Manager, met with me to discuss the spa and the unique HydraFacial experience. Like everyone at 3000BC, Jennifer was a total sweetheart and I enjoyed talking to her and learning more about the spa’s history and cutting edge treatments. Leigh Ann, my esthetician, gave me a tour of the spa (it’s stunning) before we began the facial. The facility is beautiful and serene, with 3000BC’s special essential oil blends wafting throughout.
The HydraFacial MD is a facial experience unlike any other. Utilizing a series of special serums, the HydraFacial basically sucks out all the gross things from your skin, while delivering an intense blast of moisture, nutrients, antioxidants, peptides and acids. The result is soft, plump, firm and younger looking skin. Uh…yes, please! After cleansing my face, Leigh Ann (who is absolutely fabulous) applied an exfoliating serum to help remove dead skin cells from my skin. She then applied a blend of glycolic and salicylic acids followed by a third serum to help deep clean the pores during the ‘vortex-extraction’. The machine literally sucks the dirt and oil right out of your pores. No, it doesn’t hurt and yes, you can see everything that it sucks out if you so choose. Following the extraction, Leigh Ann delivered a serum containing antioxidants, peptides and hyaluronic acid into my skin. Literally into my skin. She explained that what makes the HydraFacial so unique is that it actually deposits the serums between the dermis and epidermis, unlike other treatments that just apply serums to the surface of the skin. The HydraFacial is perfect for all skin types because it is completely and totally non-invasive. I have relatively sensitive skin (no microdermabrasion for me!) and I didn’t experience any redness or irritation following my treatment. I felt completely hydrated and refreshed following the treatment and my fine lines and wrinkles were without a doubt less noticeable. The HydraFacial is hands down the best skincare treatment I’ve ever received, and I am now not only a loyal fan of the treatment itself, but also of Leigh Ann and 3000BC.
I was thrilled to learn that 3000BC shares my belief in the beneficial properties of essential oils and aromatherapy, and I enjoyed relaxing in the spa’s glorious inhalation room with another delicious cup of tea. I should also mention that I was wearing the comfiest bathrobe of all time.
Not only does 3000BC offer an incredible variety of skin and body treatments (their menu of treatments is my new bucket list), but also their own exclusive line of skincare products is available for purchase. I decided to try their exfoliating cleanser, and it has literally rocked my world. My skin has never felt or looked better!
If you’re looking for a refreshing, non-invasive and 100% effective way to rejuvenate your skin, Adrienne Maloof and I highly recommend visiting 3000BC for a HydraFacial!
