What is a HydraFacial?
The HydraFacial is an affordable and popular treatment that can treat a variety of common skincare problems, such as dryness and aging with few to minor side effects. It is a medical-grade treatment that clears out the pores and hydrates the skin. During a HydraFacial, the dead skin cells are removed via suction and, at the same time, the skin is infused with hydrating and moisturizing serums, which possess both anti-aging and antioxidant properties.
Utilizing a four-step process – which includes cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, and hydration – the HydraFacial uses a HydraPeel Tip, a pen-like device. During the procedure, the skin is cleansed by removing excess dead skin cells and sebum; following that removal, a mixture of salicylic and glycolic acids are applied which break up the dirt and oil that clog pores; lastly, the HydraPeel Tip is used to vacuum out blackheads, dirt, oil, and other impurities, while a variety of serums are infused into the skin.
The suction does all of the work in the procedure, and there is no pressure involved. Rather, the skin is cleansed of impurities and infused with beneficial serums which improve its appearance and overall function.
What kind of results can I expect?
There are multiple benefits to getting a HydraFacial. One of the main ones is that it promotes a more hydrated and brighter, clear complexion which is clear of blemishes and acne; they can also help with the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, while improving the tone and texture of skin, while also reducing pore size.
Unlike other facials, the HydraFacial delivers much more reliable results and is considered a very safe, effective treatment which gives consistent results. Many of those who receive HydraFacials liken the sensation as to being similar to a light massage, making it an incredibly relaxing and rewarding facial treatment.
How often should I get a HydraFacial?
It is recommended that you receive a HydraFacial once every two to four weeks. However, given that each person’s skin and skincare needs are unique, you should speak with your practitioner to develop a regime that is best suited to you and your skin’s individual needs.
Is it safe to use alongside other cosmetic procedures?
HydraFacials are perfectly safe and can be performed alongside a number of other skincare procedures, which make them a very valuable part of a professional skincare regime. HydraFacials can even be performed on the same day as injectables or non-ablative light treatments and can speed up the shedding processes that are caused by resurfacing devices, while providing the skin with much needed hydration.
Additionally, HydraFacials are also incredibly customizable. The serums infused during treatment can be tailored to a patient’s unique needs to provide them with the results that they want to achieve. As well, depending on your skin type and previous reactions, your practitioner may choose to vary the duration or strength of each step – or even change up the order, depending on which part of your face is in need of treatment.
