Hydrafacial MD® brings together the benefits of hydradermabrasion, chemical peels, and clarifying (yet pinch-free!) extractions into one non-invasive skin care treatment that delivers visible results after just one treatment. HydraFacial infuses the skin with anti-aging antioxidants, hyaluronic acid and peptides that generate real results – without downtime, irritation or lasers.
How does it work?
Usually performed by a licensed esthetician or a dermatologist, a HydraFacial is a three-step process facilitated by a mechanized wand. During the procedure, the tips of the wand are swapped out for each step of the process.
If you’re considering a HydraFacial treatment, here’s what you can expect:
Step 1: Deep Clean And Peel – The first step of the process uses a tip that essentially works like a vortex to clean out dirt and debris from deep within your pores. Additionally, during this step, the epidermal and dermal layers of the skin are exfoliated with a series of chemical exfoliants such as lactic acid, glycolic acid salicylic acid.
Step 2: Extraction – The second step of the HydraFacial uses a tip that extracts or vacuums any remaining debris from clogged pores.
Step 3: Deep Hydration – The final step of the HydraFacial uses a pen-like attachment to apply a hydrating serum (typically consisting of hyaluronic acid and peptides) to the skin.
Top 7 Benefits of a HydraFacial
Hydrating facials are one of our favorite facial spa routines. It’s a non-invasive treatment but highly effective. This unique facial can be used for almost any skin condition and imperfections, including sunspots or uneven skin tone. Less invasive than conventional approaches like chemical peels or laser surface treatment, this spa treatment lets you enjoy refreshed and beautiful skin without any downtime.
1. Reduces the Appearance of Sunspots
Many people think that the only effective treatment for skin damage, age spots, or dark skin patches are photofacials or laser therapies. These options can produce outstanding results, but they also have their drawbacks and side effects. Do you have sensitive skin that requires a gentler but similarly effective treatment? Then you’ll benefit from a hydrating facial spa if your primary concern is to reduce the appearance of sunspots.
Hydrating facial treatments use pressurized water to cleanse and rejuvenate the skin. It energizes your blood vessels while cleaning and erasing skin impurities. A facial spa is a much more gentle treatment option with fewer side effects and no downtime. As a less-invasive alternative to laser therapy, it doesn’t come with any downsides or side effects.
2. Minimizes Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Another benefits of HydraFacial are that it works similarly to a chemical peel. It resurfaces the skin and extracts dead cells and impurities. Both treatments can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by encouraging the growth of newer, healthier skin. However, instead of using strong acids to produce results, hydrating facials use only water to achieve the same effect.
This gentler process allows the treatment to remove wrinkles carefully without causing skin irritation or harsher peeling. Since HydraFacial works similarly to dermabrasion, it can also reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Dead skin cells are removed to make way for the growth of younger, healthier-looking skin.
3. Clears Up Acne and Reduces Breakouts
Anybody can be affected by acne, but the condition is more common among adolescents or those with oily skin. Unfortunately, harsh chemicals to treat acne can do more harm than good when it comes to stripping oil and dirt from the skin. Without the need for harsh washing and peeling, hydrating treatments can achieve the same result. A facial spa can give you your desired results with the added benefit of removing existing sunspots.
Do you also have oily skin, in addition to acne? If so, not only are you more likely to have clogged pores, but you are also more likely to suffer from acne outbreaks more frequently. Thanks to the gentle but powerful suction from hydrating spa treatments, you can exfoliate and extract dirt and oil from the surface of your skin, minimizing a greasy, oily appearance.
4. Works on Most Skin Types
If you have sensitive skin that suffers from a particular condition, you might be hesitant when it comes to trying new options for skin rejuvenation. Instead of selecting a specialized treatment for your specific skin type, you can solve multiple problems with the help of hydrating facial treatments.
It is not damaging to most skin types and does not aggravate most skin problems, so you are likely to be a good candidate for the treatment. The best way to know is to schedule a consultation and let us know about your specific skin conditions, so we can also suggest the most appropriate treatment.
5. Delivers Consistent Results
The outcomes of most skincare treatments rely on the specialist’s skills. They must be trained and skilled with their hands to complete manual extractions effectively. However, a hydrating facial spa is different. A handheld wand performs the treatment itself and does not rely on manual skills.
By using innovative technology, it provides outstanding, reliable results. The experience is consistent as well. It will be just as painless, effective, and convenient every time because the same machine performs the treatment.
6. Has Immediate Outcomes With No Downtime
Traditional facials and peels can leave your skin red and irritated several hours up to a day after the treatment. In contrast, you’ll experience minimal to no side effects with HydraFacial. In fact, you can apply makeup immediately after your treatment and go about your day as usual. The simple treatment makes it a perfect choice for when you’re about to attend large gatherings or galas.
Most people see visible results right after the treatment. These initial results usually last for up to a week. If you’d like to maintain your results and keep your skin hydrated and fresh, you can enjoy a hydrating facial every few weeks.
7. Compatible With Other Treatments
Instead of visiting the dermatologist for many treatments, you can get the same benefits all at once in combination with a HydraFacial. After the facial, you can have other treatments right away, such as a Botox or dermal fillers.
