About 2 million HydraFacial treatments are performed each year around the world, but what is this facial treatment and how does it work? Keep reading for everything you need to know about how the facial works, how it differs from traditional facials and what the all the benefits are.
3 Steps in 30 Minutes
The HydraFacial is the only facial treatment around that won’t leave your face red or marked up for a few days. The procedure, in general, is a much gentler approach than traditional extraction therapies, like dermabrasion. Instead, this procedure cleanses, exfoliates, and rehydrates gently and safely. The best part? It only takes about 30 minutes to complete and includes three main steps:
Step 1: Cleanse the Pores
An experienced HydraFacial technician will use what is known as a deplaning tool to gently open up the pores, making debris easy to swipe away. This part of the process will not cause any pain or irritation to the skin. It also perfectly preps the skin for extraction. This process will also include a gentle acid peel that will not burn or damage your skin – which is often the main concern with harsher treatments not intended for all skin types. This gentle product is made for everyone and will feel refreshing and cool. It also won’t leave your skin looking red or swollen.
Step 2: Extraction
At this point, the technician will remove the deeply penetrated debris clogging your pores. In a traditional facial, this is done with the use of metal tools, which can cause irritation and discomfort for some people. But the HydraFacial focuses on gentle techniques to protect your skin. Instead of a pointed tool, your technician will use a specially designed vacuum. The gentle suction will loosen even the most stubborn debris and make it easy to wipe away afterward.
Step 3: Hydration
Once the skin has been cleaned and prepped, it is ready to receive ultimate hydration. With the dead layer of skin cells removed, your skin will absorb hydrating products much better, resulting in softer and smoother-looking skin. The results are instant and will last, for the most part, for about five to seven days. The first week will yield the most noticeable results, but most patients don’t feel the need to have a HydraFacial more than once a month.
The HydraFacial Skin Booster Add-Ons
If you suffer from very particular skin problems like acne or want to target fine lines and wrinkles more, you can choose to add specific skin boosting products to the hydration cycle of your HydraFacial treatment. This will provide results for your specific skin conditions, ensuring you walk out of the clinic with your best skin ever.
The Real Benefits of a HydraFacial Treatment
In addition to glowing, hydrated skin, you will also love that this treatment has no downtime, won’t cause swelling or redness, and will help fight against the premature signs of aging. Because of its gentle nature, it doesn’t normally interfere with other skin procedures including Botox and other dermal fillers.
Combining a HydraFacial with Dermaplane
If you normally use Dermaplane technology to exfoliate your skin, you can combine this procedure along with your HydraFacial, as well. This deep-tissue exfoliation works together with a HydraFacial to boost results and leave patients with even brighter, more noticeable results.
