We all want to have glowing, smooth, bright, and youthful-looking skin. Hence why most of us have cabinets full of products promising that perfect glow. These, however, typically only treat the very top layers of skin. Enter, the HydraFacial.
This treatment hydrates, cleanses, and extracts dead and loose skin cells. The therapy uses a patented, medical-grade device to remove dead skin cells, loosen pores, and prepare them for extraction using a mix of glycolic acid, salicylic acid, and botanical extracts. The result is luminous skin, clear pores, and a plumped, hydrated effect.
What is HydraFacial Good For?
The treatment process addresses a variety of skincare needs, which include:
- Oily and congested skin
- Enlarged pores
- Brown spots
- Improve skin texture
- Even tone and vibrancy
- Boost elasticity and firmness
- Minimize fine lines and wrinkles
HydraFacial is ideal for all skin types due to its ability to be customized to each patient’s unique skin type and requirements. It is a suitable treatment for all ages and all skin types.
After loosening the pores and prepping them for extraction, the process then uses a unique vacuum-powered extraction method. This effectively removes debris like blackheads, dead skin cells, oil, dirt, and other environmental impurities from the skin. The skin is simultaneously infused with serums that plump, nourish, and hydrate the skin.
This entirely painless process leaves skin deeply cleansed and hydrated with an overall luminous effect.
The HydraFacial Process
- Cleanse and Peel. This initial step involves removing the outer layer of skin cells to unclog pores and sweep away impurities and debris. This ensures that the next steps are able to penetrate the skin effectively and results in a brighter, more even tone.
- Extract and Hydrate. Using the patented HydraTip, this process removes impurities from the pores with a vacuum-effect whilst simultaneously delivering topic serums deep into the skin.
- Fuse and Protect. The final stage of a HydraFacial involves using custom boosters on the skin. These serums address a variety of concerns and are custom to your particular needs, such as hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, dull skin, and enlarged pores.
One reason for the immense popularity of HydraFacial is that it delivers incredible results with minimal side effects and almost no downtime after treatment.
Of course, after treatment, you will want to let your skin rest and soak up all the benefits of the facial. We advise clients to avoid makeup for the rest of the day following their treatment. For this reason, we advise that if clients are looking to have a HydraFacial before a special event, they book their appointment for at least 24-48 hours beforehand.
However, by morning your skin will be positively glowing and you are able to apply makeup and go about your normal routine.
Who Should Avoid HydraFacial?
Anyone with an active rash, sunburn, or rosacea may want to avoid HydraFacial until their symptoms subside. Some of the active ingredients used in the treatment, such as salicylic and glycolic acid, can further irritate and exacerbate conditions such as these.
Before undergoing the procedure, it is advisable to stop using prescription creams, such as retinoids, for several days. This helps prevent any irritation. Ask for details when booking your appointment.
Benefits of a HydraFacial Treatment
The HydraFacial delivers amazing results without being invasive or requiring downtime. Hence why it is often referred to as the “Holy Grail” of facial treatments. With HydraFacial we can quickly improve skin tone and texture and greatly improve conditions such as acne. It also combines well with other procedures such as Botox and Fillers. So, if clients are hoping to do everything in one trip, they can.
HydraFacial is a popular treatment for red-carpet events and weddings because it offers unparalleled radiance-boosting effects. And who doesn’t want to look radiant?
