What is HydraFacial?
HydraFacial is a facial treatment performed using a proprietary HydraFacial MD machine. This multi-step gentle treatment combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, and delivery of different skin rejuvenating serums to the facial skin during a single session.
HydraFacial is also called “hydradermabrasion” because it involves microdermabrasion and skin hydration. The microdermabrasion in this treatment is a gentler procedure that causes little to no irritation. The hydration or moisturizing process benefits from specialized hydrating serums.
Although the fundamental concept of Hydra Facial is the same as a regular facial you get from a spa, it offers more spectacular results. This is mainly because of its specially designed mechanized wand that performs deep cleansing and exfoliation while delivering loaded serums to a certain depth of your skin.
What Does It Treat?
The skin exfoliation performed by HydraFacial mainly helps cleanse your pores and removes debris, allowing for better absorption of hydrating serums. This invigorating treatment helps resolve the following problems.
- Acne: The microdermabrasion technique used during HydraFacial treatment is considered a tried and tested solution for acne and acne scars. The deep exfoliation performed during this step rids the pores of clogging dead cells and debris.
- Blackheads: Blackheads are a non-inflammatory type of acne usually caused by dead skin cells. This problem is also treated with HydraFacial’s exfoliation and extraction.
- Oily skin: The exfoliation also eliminates excess sebum inside pores, reducing the oiliness of facial skin.
- Rosacea: According to a 2006 study, HydraFacial may help treat papulopustular rosacea.
- Anti-aging concerns: A 2008 study demonstrated an overall positive impact of HydraFacial on aging skin. This study involved 20 participants, some of whom were given HydraFacial treatment while others received serums alone. The study results showed a more significant reduction in aging signs such as fine lines and wrinkles in the HydraFacial group than in the rest of the participants.
Good Candidate for HydraFacial
The best thing about HydraFacial is that it is suitable for all skin types and tones. You are a good candidate for this soothing treatment if you have skin concerns due to extra sensitivity or dryness. You can also get this treatment to treat acne or protect your acne-prone skin.
How does HydraFacial work?
The main functions of HydraFacial treatment are exfoliation, cleansing, extraction, and hydration. These actions are performed using a unique wand-like device connected to the HydraFacial MD machine. This wand uses vortex swirling motion to perform all these functions.
Here is a brief overview of the three steps involved in HydraFacial treatment.
Cleanse and Peel
This step involves skin resurfacing through the HydraFacial tip, which generates a fluid vortex to dislodge debris and other skin impurities. Not only does this step unclog pores, but it also boosts collagen production, which proves to be a long-term benefit.
Extract and Hydrate
The wand’s tip gets the debris out of the pores during this step while supplying the treated area with topical moisturizers. The uniquely designed HydraFacial’s tip performs both these functions simultaneously.
Infuse and Protect
This final step of the treatment is aimed at helping you achieve your skin goal. This step involves using serums or boosters specifically made to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores, and dull skin.
What to expect after HydraFacial?
HydraFacial treatment delivers visible results in one session. After the treatment, you will have a more radiant skin tone with a more hydrated and youthful appearance.
Are there side effects of HydraFacial?
In general, HydraFacial treatment doesn’t lead to any severe side effects. The only side-effect of this treatment is minor redness, which subsides shortly afterward. You may apply makeup if you want to conceal this redness.
How long do HydraFacial results last?
The longevity of HydraFacial results varies from person to person. In general, these results last anywhere between two and four weeks.
How often should you get HydraFacial?
People willing to maintain their appearance with HydraFacial are usually recommended to get this treatment every month. This frequency of repeat sessions helps prevent the diminution of your skin glow.
What’s the downtime after HydraFacial?
HydraFacial is a non-invasive procedure that doesn’t involve any injections and causes no discomfort. Hence, it requires no downtime afterward.
Which is better – Microdermabrasion or HydraFacial?
The simple answer is HydraFacial because it offers everything you need to have youthful and glowing skin.
However, you may consider microdermabrasion if your skin is congested or oily. It will unclog your pores and remove stubborn accumulations of dead skin cells and other types of debris.
Hydrafacial Treatment Results
