What is a HydraFacial?
A HydraFacial is a treatment that uses patented technology (a medical-grade device) to cleanse, extract, and hydrate skin. It clears dead skin cells, loosens pores, and preps them for extraction using a mix of glycolic acid, salicylic acid, and botanical extracts. Then, it uses a unique vacuum-powered extraction method to remove “gunk” from the skin in a virtually painless procedure.
It’s all made possible thanks to a double-helix vortex treatment wand. One chamber of the wand draws dead skin cells and dirt from the skin while the other pumps the skin full of soothing nutrients (hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, and growth factors). Basically, your skin is freshly cleared for deeper penetration. It’s essentially a peel, microdermabrasion, and hydrating mask all in one.
More extensive HydraFacial treatments can also include features such as:
LED light therapy
And more targeted add-ons and boosters.
So, why are HydraFacials loved by patients worldwide? There are five well-known benefits that every patient can expect.
No Downtime with a HydraFacial
In just around 30 minutes, a HydraFacial can give you clearer, more radiant skin with little to zero irritation, meaning virtually no downtime. According to dermatologist Joshua Zeichner, MD, who spoke with Refinery 29, “The treatment has become extremely popular because it has virtually no downtime and can improve skin glow, hydration, and radiance in just 30 minutes.”
No special preparation is required, and patients can return to their normal activities (including wearing makeup) immediately after treatment. Best yet, you’ll witness a camera-ready reduction in visible pores and fine lines with better skin texture, firmness, and a brighter, glowing complexion.
HydraFacial Works on Sensitive Skin
HydraFacials avoid causing excessive redness (dilating blood vessels in the skin) by not using pore-softening steam. This means that the treatment even works for individuals with sensitive skin. And since vacuum-powered extraction is used instead of manual squeezing or lancing of the skin, individuals with sensitive skin can enjoy a deep clean without inflammation.
In addition, a HydraFacial can be dialed-in and customized for an array of skin concerns depending on the patient’s needs. Whether you’re a teenager with acne or an older patient with sun damage and hyperpigmentation, it can work for you. The only individuals who should avoid a HydraFacial are those with active rashes, sunburns, or rosacea.
The HydraFacial Procedure is Virtually Painless
Because liquid is deposited with every swipe of the treatment wand (which is a smooth, plastic-tipped wand), patients will never feel scraping or skin pulling. There’s no needling, pinching, abrasion, or anything else. The process is very gentle without any uncomfortable burning or unpleasant reactions. In fact, many patients find treatment enjoyable and relaxing.
It should be noted that the treatment does use gentle acids (7.5% glycolic acid and 2.5% salicylic acid), so there might be a slight tingle, but that should be it. A HydraFacial is a feel-good experience that many patients compare to the sensation of a light massage.
The Result is Younger-looking, Glowing, Healthier Skin
The treatment works instantly on visible pores and fine lines. Patients will witness enhanced firmness and improved texture and complexion, immediately, and they’ll see all their blackheads vanish without a trace. You can expect to leave your HydraFacial treatment with a brighter complexion and glowing skin.
Overall, a HydraFacial can be used to address a variety of skin care needs, including:
Fine lines and wrinkles
Elasticity and firmness
Even tone and vibrancy
Oily and congested skin
The HydraFacial produces consistent results that patients can count on time and time again. It’s reliably safe and effective at improving the current condition of your skin. And by providing an infusion of essential vitamins, moisture, and antioxidants to your skin, it helps fight the early signs of aging and protects from environmental pollution and harmful free radicals.
