Benefits Of Hydrafacial For Skin

New options come and go fairly quickly in the world of skincare treatments. But hydrafacial is proving to be a mainstay among aestheticians and patients alike.

Unlike any other type of facial, the benefits of a hydrafacial treatment for skin are astounding. In fact, it’s like a high-tech version of facials, incorporating different skincare techniques into one effective, customizable treatment. Not only that, but it’s an excellent choice for just about everyone. In short, if you have never had one, it’s definitely worth considering.

Continue reading to learn more about the benefits of hydrafacial for skin and why it’s so special.

So, What Is a Hydrafacial?

Using patented hydra-dermabrasion technology, a hydrafacial is a multi-step facial treatment that includes exfoliating, extracting, and then hydrating the skin. With each treatment, a resurfacing wand featuring an exfoliating tip is used. As it resurfaces the skin, it also provides a gentle suction, pulling out impurities and dirt. For the final touch, a booster or serum is used which is designed for specific skin concerns.

In essence, there are 4 facial treatments rolled into one session – cleansing and exfoliating, chemical peel, extraction, and a hydrating serum. These steps are delivered using the patented hydrafacial device. Not like traditional facials that can have different effects depending on your skin type, the hydrafacial provides consistent results.

The average treatment time is about 30 minutes. If this is your first hydrafacial appointment, here’s what to expect.

1. Cleansing & Exfoliation

The first step is cleansing and exfoliation. Using a vortex cleansing and hydra peel tip, your aesthetician will use the HydraFacial wand to gently cleanse and exfoliate your skin. This removes oils and dead skin cells while gently opening your pores. It’s often described as having a revolving electric toothbrush gently pressed to your skin.

2. Gentle Chemical Peel

Next, your aesthetician will change the tip of the wand to deliver a gentle chemical peel to loosen deep pore debris. Some chemical peels can be irritating, leaving your skin red for hours. But the hydrafacial uses a non-irritating mix of glycolic and salicylic acids for a gentle yet effective peel.

3. Extraction

Extraction is the third step. This is where the device will use strong, painless vortex vacuum suction to remove impurities and blackheads from your pores. These impurities collect in a cup to be discarded.

4. Hydrating Serum

In this final step your aesthetician will use the hydrafacial wand to apply a soothing hydrating serum with peptides, antioxidants, and hyaluronic acid for deep nourishment. After your treatment is complete, your aesthetician may also augment the service with additional procedures such as light therapy. Since the hydrafacial is so gentle, you can complete other treatments during your visit.

Benefits Of Hydrafacial For The Skin

Hydrafacial is an effective alternative to harsher facial treatments. Here are some of the benefits of a hydrafacial and why people love this skin treatment.

  • Immediate results. You can see positive results right away due to this treatment being non-invasive. For a healthy, luminous glow, we recommend it before attending a special event.
  • Works on all skin types. Whether you have dry or oily skin, sensitive skin or acne, hydrafacial will work for you.
  • No downtime. Another reason people love hydrafacial is that there is no downtime. In fact, you can even apply makeup that same day if you would like to. However, most people enjoy the glow from the treatment and don’t want to cover it up.
  • Consistent results. Given that much of the treatment is controlled by hydrafacial technology, you can achieve a consistent, high-quality treatment every time.
