Hydra Facial: How to Know if This Advanced Skin Treatment is Right for You

Hydra Facial: How to Know if This Advanced Skin Treatment is Right for You

HydraFacial is an advanced resurfacing treatment. It removes dead skin cells and impurities while injecting moisturizing serum to help eliminate wrinkles and blemishes. The benefits include a smoother skin tone, a brighter complexion, and the elimination of fine lines and other signs of aging.

Hydra Facial treatments improve skin texture by deep cleaning and whisking away impurities. This anti-aging regimen is the most effective, non-surgical skin rejuvenation available. But you can’t do anything quite like it at home.

Our Hydra Face facial estheticians will use science to bring you a premium, life-changing experience. Just one treatment can instantly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles!

Do Away with Dead Skin Cells

HydraFacial’s secret is its patented hydra-dermabrasion device.

Unlike traditional dermabrasion, which directly scratches away the top layer of skin, hydra-dermabrasion uses its patented Vortex technology to gently and effectively suck away unwanted impurities. We use this better penetration to comfortably cleanse, exfoliate, and infuse your complexion with intensive serums in one graceful whirlwind. 

In just three steps and 30 minutes, you can have the best skin of your life!

What Happens During the HydraFacial

HydraFacials begin with cleansing and exfoliating. The first step is using a mixture of glycolic and salicylic acids to clear out the clogged pores and remove excess dirt and grease.

We then use HydraPeel’s Tip to vacuum out impurities while applying moisturizing serum.

Hydrafacials are never painful. Most patients compare the sensation to a light massage.

After the treatment, you may see a slight redness, but this will soon diminish. Your face will rest and absorb all the benefits of the hydrafacial for the rest of the day.

You can resume normal activities and cosmetic treatments the following day.

3 Steps to Visible Skin Refinement

1. Cleanse and Peel

We start with optimizing tone and texture.

HydraFacial leaves your face resurfaced, brightened, and glowing. Through relaxing exfoliation and gentle resurfacing, hydradermabrasion can painlessly peel away dead skin cells.

Did you know you can boost your collagen production with the long-term use of exfoliation systems? This process also promotes skin elasticity and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

2. Extract and Hydrate with Vortex-Fusion Technology

You hate when your pores look large, stretched out, and dehydrated. So don't leave your pores full of dirt and impurities, or you'll end up with breakouts that will be unsightly and uncomfortable. 

Hydrafacial’s proprietary vortex technology is the perfect complement to the spiral design of HydroPeel Tips. The resulting vacuum effect dislodges even the deepest impurities and delivers topical moisturizers where you need them most

3. Fuse & Protect

HydraFacial supports dermatological health by infusing the skin with nourishing serums. Protect and brighten your now radiant skin tone by saturating your skin with our proprietary mix of antioxidants and peptides.

Consider adding one of our powerful boosters to your facial for ultimate customization.

What Sets Hydra-Facial Apart

This ability to moisturize and smoothen the face separates HydraFacial from other procedures in dermatopathology. The treatments have soothing effects that do not irritate, disturb, or affect any body part.

The clinical trials revealed that those who received HydraFacial treatments had reversed more signs of aging than those who only used serums!

The results recorded included:

  • Smaller pores.
  • Decreased fine lines.
  • Less hyperpigmentation.

HydraFacial vs. Microdermabrasion

Hydradermabration and microdermabrasion produce similar results, but one significant difference between these two procedures is the extraction method.

Microdermabrasion treatments typically use an abrasive surface to scrub impurities off the face.

HydraFacials, on the other hand, use a vacuum-like tip to remove dirt and bacteria lodged deep into the skin. It's less painful than microdermabrasion, and you get smooth results the same day.

Chemical peel

HydraFacial vs. Chemical Peels

A chemical peel uses acid to remove the topmost layers of skin. It’s usually better tolerated by lighter complexions because darker skin types might develop uneven pigmentation.

HydraFacial is non-irritating and effective for all skin shades, and a more even skin tone benefits many patients.

HydraFacial vs. Microneedling

Microneedling is one of the more serious treatments intended to boost collagen. The micro-injuries stimulate healing factors, which include collagen. Because of the depth required to promote resurfacing, a board-certified dermatopathologist must perform this procedure.

HydraFacial has collagen-boosting properties but does so without damaging the skin. There’s no recovery time, and results are almost instantaneous. This makes HydraFacial ideal right before a big event, whereas microneedling can only be part of a longer-term anti-aging regime.

Microneedling and HydraFacials cost a similar amount of money.

Is HydraFacial right for you?

If you have challenges with the following conditions, skin resurfacing procedures like hydrafacial treatment may be exactly what you need:

  • Brown Spots
  • Elasticity & Firmness

The Risks Associated with HydraFacials

One of the big reasons HydraFacial has become popular is due to its few side effects. The patented technology has been proven safe and effective for almost all skin types, from teenagers with acne to older patients with flaky, pre-cancerous spots and other conditions.

There are some exceptions, though.

Who Shouldn’t Get a HydraFacial

Pregnant patients should abstain from these treatment methods. Ingredients such as salicylic acid may pose a risk to your baby. Individuals with active rashes, injuries, or sunburn should wait for their skin to heal before undergoing treatment.

How Many Treatments to See Results?

Many patients report a reduction in pore size, acne, and signs of aging in as little as one session. Still, it’s essential to recognize that one treatment doesn’t necessarily result in complete repair.

How often should I get HydraFacials?

It’s hard to predict how many treatments you will have to undergo to achieve your desired results. Our

master aesthetician recommends undergoing HydraFacials every 4-6 months to achieve maximum effect. 

Why Does it Cost so Much?

This procedure is a premium service. It has the aim of improving the appearance of the skin with age.  However, the potential benefits can last longer than almost any other facial treatment, making the hydrafacial cost worth it.

Customize Your Treatment

The HydraFacial system is personalized by design. Part of why this treatment needs to happen in a medical spa is that your derms expert will be trained to identify and treat specific skin problems.

Whether your specific concerns involve sun damage or acne, you want to ensure that we address all your concerns.

The approach to specific steps of the hydrafacial treatment can vary depending on skin type. An experienced aesthetician can apply the exfoliation to different degrees and leave acids on the face over different periods.
