How to cultivate the complexion of your dreams with a hydrafacial at home

How to cultivate the complexion of your dreams with a hydrafacial at home

You've heard the hype, perhaps you've already received one of our customized HydraFacials, and you're wondering if you can do a hydrafacial at home. Of all the skincare treatments out there, it is one of the most instantly gratifying spa facials you can get.

What is Hydrafacial?

For people who are not familiar with it, HydraFacial is a skin rejuvenation process that removes impurities and moisturizes the skin. The three-step procedure involves cleansing, vacuum extraction of dirt and dead skin cells, and infusion with hydrating serums.

Hydrafacial treatment is one of the most advanced skincare treatments available. It's not like your standard facial--which is a temporary, skin conditioning treatment. It's also not quite invasive enough to be considered a medical procedure.

HydraFacial Vs. Microdermabrasion Vs. Traditional Chemical Peels

Our skin health is closely connected to the care we give it. The best way to promote natural healing is to resurface the skin with treatments that remove the topmost layer of skin--which is dead skin cells.

There are two different ways to resurface your skin: chemical and mechanical. This procedure is meant to rejuvenate your skin by removing dirt and dead skin cells, which in turn will remove toxins.

Chemical peels use a variety of acids to lift away dead skin cells. It's very effective on enlarged pores and fine lines, but it's not an ideal facial treatment for sensitive skin.

Microdermabrasion removes those dead skin cells and debris in a mechanical way, using sand, water, air, or some combination. Hydradermabrasion--exfoliation by water--is what takes place during a hydra facial. It is the newest method of microdermabrasion.

HydraFacial is a patented take on Hydradermabrasion. The facial treatment starts out by removing excess oil from the surface of the skin. Next, an acid mixture is applied to the skin to break off the remaining grime and dead skin. Hydrapeel Tips are then used to suck out dust, scum, and dirt while simultaneously infusing your skin with hydrating serums.

Our skin needs hydration and rejuvenation. HydraFacial is one of those procedures that achieves incredible results with just one hour of specialized skin care.

Patients generally describe the experience as a gentle massage and the overall facial treatment as comfortable.

Hydrafacial treatment produces same-day results that last up to a week or more, but the benefits of resurfacing your skin continue indefinitely afterward.

Hydrafacial treatment does not produce any harmful side effects except for redness lasting up to 1 hour. The hydradermabrasion process requires minimal downtime, so you can return to your normal activities right away. It’s perfect for those “big day” events like weddings!

HydraFacial combines exfoliating products that stimulate elasticity, smooth skin tone and improve the overall health of all skin types. Hydradermabrasion technologies cleanse, extract and hydrate.

We recommend a customized multi-treatment regimen for optimized skin care. One way to do this is to perform deep cleansing in between office treatments.

How to Do HydraFacial at Home

1. Remove Makeup

The process begins with stripping the skin of contaminants one layer at a time. Start with a cleansing oil, massage all the surfaces of your face to remove any cosmetics, and lightly pat dry. Repeat if needed.

2. Deep Cleanse

The deep cleanse is more than just your everyday face wash. The potent but gentle facial cleanser reaches deep into the surface of your skin, washing out clogged pores.

3. Gentle Exfoliation

This process uses gentle micro crystals to slowly slough away dead skin cells and loosens pore debris. Use just your hands and take the time to rub rough, dry, problematic areas.

4. Light chemical exfoliation

All our chemical exfoliants are gentle. The deep treatment is technically a chemical peel, with salicylic acid, glycolic acid, and hyaluronic acid serum.

5. Intense Physical Exfoliation

Now is the time to reach for the hydradermabrasion machine. This step promotes new cell growth, stimulating collagen production for skin repair, and renewing the glowing skin beneath the surface. The mechanical force of the water washes away old skin cells for good.

6. Extract Impurities

The vacuum suction is what makes this treatment particularly effective. All the junk in your face--pore debris, skin impurities--gets literally blown away. The gentle suction shrinks enlarged pores and brings blood flow to the surface of the skin for faster skin regeneration and improved glow.

7. Hydrate & Seal

Now that you have the cleanest skin you can imagine, it's time to apply the skin conditioning treatment. This skin conditioning treatment will seal your pores to give you the most hydrated skin you've ever had. Let your skin marinate in the serums. Hydrafacial treatment is the key to skin repair for all skin types!

Hydrafacial & Microdermabrasion Benefits

Microdermabrasion is a miracle of facial skin care. It removes poor, dreary skin and increases collagen production. The benefits are endless, but the list includes:

Improved Skin Hydration
There are few treatments that improve skin hydration to the same extent as HydraFacial. This alone is one of the reasons that hydrafacial treatments are becoming some of the most popular dermatological treatments. By removing dead skin cells and excess sebum, all the juicy goodness of your skin's natural moisture is allowed to show through, and improved skin texture combats the dullness and dryness that plague us more and more as we age.
Increased Skin Volume & Elasticity
The secret to youthful skin texture is natural plumping through increased blood circulation. This facial treatment promotes hydrated skin and can enhance skin elasticity, firming up sagging skin.
Renewed Skin Texture & Tone
Chemical peels and microdermabrasion have long been a feature of spa facials. HydraFacial uses a unique set of steps that fuses the best of each treatment.
Reversed Signs of Aging
Fine lines and wrinkles make skin look dull and tired. Dark spots can clue others onto just how many decades you've spent in the sun. Hydrafacial at home can give you the glowing skin you so dearly wanted back in high school!
Shrinks Enlarged Pores
Your cheeks shouldn’t look like the surface of a golf ball. Skin resurfacing treatments like hydrafacial are the most effective way to shrink large pores and perfect the skin surface.
Reveals Glowing Complexion
Uneven skin tone is one of the most obvious signs of aging and one of the hardest things to hide. The hydrafacial exfoliates your entire face to the same layer of skin, evening tone and reducing the need to wear concealers.
Sensitive skin
This facial treatment is safe for sensitive skin types. Hydrafacial keeps skin hydrated and more resilient to skin issues such as sun exposure.
Dead Skin Cells
Sun exposure, dehydration, and skincare product absorption all affect skin health and skin complexion in the long term. By doing away with dead skin cells, we can reveal the glowing skin beneath

Common Questions

Do I need a HydraFacial Machine?

A true HydraFacial is only available in the office of a medical spa with a licensed esthetician. The HydraFacial machine is a unique technology designed for in-office treatment.

But there are other, less powerful, devices on the market that can help you perform a deep, cleansing facial at home. By taking clues from hydrafacial treatment, you can maintain your hydrafacial results between professional appointments.

Will hydrafacial really give you radiant skin?

Unlike other treatments, namely microdermabrasion and microneedling, HydraFacal is beneficial for any complexion type and helps with many skin concerns. It also reduces the size of your pores, softens fine lines and wrinkles, and improves firmness.

Is a HydraFacial just water?

HydraFacial has developed its own Vortex Fusion treatment to deep clean and provide nutrients to your pores. This applies mainly to the surface and to the pores in the body. The water is the key component of treatment and goes way beyond simple exfoliation.

Does HydraFacial Suck blackheads?

HydraFacial makes blackhead extraction easier by removing the layers of skin holding the blackheads in place. After exfoliation, the HydraFacial tools suck out all impurities, including blackheads.

How often can I get a HydraFacial?

Because human skin regenerates within 30 days, it's recommended the hydradermabrasion is repeated at least once a month to prevent new damage to the skin. You can get a professional hydrafacial as frequently as every week.

While it is impossible to completely recreate the spa experience in your own home, hydrafacial at home can be an excellent way to maintain your results between professional appointments.
