HydraFacial has risen in popularity as a multistep skin-care routine that can achieve a natural glow with a facial for those wanting smooth, bright, and youthful-looking skin. It is a patented skin treatment that offers an instant “wow factor” in brightening and firming skin. HydraFacial works to deep-clean, exfoliate and hydrate the skin.
In fact, this noninvasive procedure is similar in principle to a regular facial anyone can get from a spa, but Hydrafacial provides dramatic results. This is because of the mechanized wand used on the skin to deeply clean, exfoliate, and deliver serums customized to the skin type. Moreover, Hydrafacial provides safe skin treatment for all skin types.
What Are The Multi-Steps Routine In A HydraFacial?
Here are the steps involved in a HydraFacial:
Cleanse and Exfoliation
This is the resurfacing step when the skin is exfoliated and where dead skin cells are removed from the outer layer of the skin. It has long been known to have beneficial skin effects, including leaving the skin looking brighter, unclogging pores, and — with long-term use — increasing collagen production.
In this step, the aesthetician will change the wand’s tip to deliver a gentle chemical peel. Unlike other irritating or painful chemical peels, it will leave the skin red for hours or days.
For a gentle yet effective peel, HydraFacials use a non-irritating mix of salicylic and glycolic acids to loosen deep pore debris.
The next step is extraction, where the tip gets the gunk out of pores and simultaneously delivers topical moisturizers. The device used in HydraFacial uses strong, painless vortex vacuum suction to remove blackheads and impurities from the pores.
The HydraFacial wand is used to apply a soothing proprietary antioxidative, as well as a hydrating serum with peptides and other beneficial nutrients. The process helps to detoxify, rejuvenate, and hydrate the skin.
Infuse and Protect
The treatment will finish with “boosters” or serums. These are geared toward the skin goal, which may include reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, dull skin, or enlarged pores. The treatment is entirely customizable through these “boost” serums, a significant perk for patients.
What Are The Benefits Of HydraFacial?
Some of the benefits of HydraFacial include the following:
Improves Skin Tone
The facial effectively reduces hyperpigmentation and balances skin tone irregularities. Often dull skin is caused by the buildup of dirt and dead or damaged skin cells. That said, HydraFacial’s exfoliating action helps buff away this layer of impurities, revealing the brighter, clearer skin beneath.
Clears Clogged Pores
As part of HydraFacial treatment, the acid peel solution applied functions to dislodge and partially dissolve comedones, which is the accumulation of dirt, excess sebum, and dead skin cells trapped inside the pores. The vacuum suction attachment draws out these impurities, deep cleaning, and unclogging pores.
Helps Treat Scars
It is important to note that scars form due to collagen buildup during the wound-healing process. Because the body can produce too much collagen too quickly, sometimes it causes the collagen to accumulate unevenly. This results in scar tissue often appearing slightly raised or depressed concerning the surrounding skin.
Hydrafacial’s resurfacing effect smooths the skin, softening the edges of scars and reducing their appearance. The increased collagen production of HydraFacials also adds volume to depressed scar tissue, making these scars less visible.
It is characterized by the appearance of scattered areas of skin that are darker than the surrounding skin. Several factors, including acne, hormone imbalances, sun damage, and aging, can cause these dark patches.
With the help of HydraFacial, it helps lessen the visage of hyperpigmented parts by exfoliating dark, discolored layers of surface skin. Because of the increased cellular turnover, the treatment encourages the growth of new skin that is more evenly pigmented.
Reduces the Appearance of Large Pores
While it is not possible to shrink pores, it is possible to reduce their appearance. Pores often appear enlarged or dilated from accumulated dead skin cells, sebum, dirt, and other impurities.
In addition, the clean, unclogged pores will appear smaller. As such, Hydrafacials can reduce the appearance of large pores through deep cleansing.
Treats Some Types of Acne
The effects of exfoliation and pore-cleansing can help treat mild-to-moderate forms of comedonal acne, like blackheads. However, inflammatory acne, which is another more severe form, takes root below the skin’s surface and will not be effectively treated by HydraFacial.
Since a hydrating serum is applied during the last step of the procedure, the treatment can be formulated to help reduce inflammation and ease some of the discomforts that accompany more serious breakouts.
Reduces Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Regular HydraFacial treatments can smooth the appearance of wrinkles and fine. As indicated, the process of exfoliation involved in HydraFacial removes layers of dry, thin, aging skin and stimulates the production of collagen.
When new collagen and nourishing ingredients combine in the hydrating serum, it improves texture in the regenerated tissues. As a result, it provides smoother, firmer, and more youthful-looking skin.
How Long Does The HydraFacial Effect Last?
With regular HydraFacial treatments scheduled one month apart, continued improvements can be seen in skin tone while it continues to decrease the acne severity and appearance in pore size. Results may last only one or two weeks after each treatment for others. On the other hand, reduced fine lines and wrinkles typically last from several weeks to one month after the first Hydrafacial treatment.
Continued treatment will lead to longer-lasting and more dramatic results over time. As superficial scarring and hyperpigmentation only affect tissues near the skin’s surface, these conditions will likely show permanent improvement due to Hydrafacial treatments and can eventually be eliminated.
How Often Should One Get A HydraFacial?
The required HydraFacial sessions will depend on the skin as well as the provider’s recommendations. In general, though, repeating the treatment every 4 weeks is recommended, while others encourage repeating sessions every 2 weeks. However, it is best to consult an aesthetician or dermatologist to determine the right number of sessions based on the skin condition and goals.
What Could Be The Possible Side Effects?
Unlike many other facials and chemical peels, there is very little chance of side effects with HydraFacial when administered by an experienced aesthetician. A few people should not use the HydraFacial technique, including those with an active rash, skin condition, or sunburn. With little risk of any side effects and its instant results, it is no wonder HydraFacial has become a favorite treatment in the medical spa world.
