Meet the HydraFacial.
The HydraFacial is a multi-step treatment designed to revitalize your skin, using innovative techniques and the latest technology.
What does it involve? And are there any risks?
We’ll cover everything you need to know about the powerful HydraFacial treatment below.
What is a HydraFacial Treatment?
HydraFacial treatments have become increasingly popular, with countless people booking a session at their local medical spa.
As with most facials, a HydraFacial treatment will help you relax and feel pampered, but it achieves incredible results at the same time. You get to lie back and unwind while a skilled beauty specialist takes you through the seven (yes, seven!) steps of the HydraFacial process.
The HydraFacial treatment uses patented technology to nourish your skin with a hydradermabrasion device. Your skin is cleansed, exfoliated with a chemical peel, and infused with amazing serums.
What are the 7 Steps of HydraFacial Treatments?
Let’s take a close look at the seven steps involved in a HydraFacial treatment at a medical spa:
The HydraFacial starts with lymphatic drainage to boost your lymph system’s circulation and flush out toxins lurking under the skin. This step is particularly important if you’re prone to acne, as it helps to unclog pores and reduce the risk of further issues. Detoxification promotes clearer, healthier skin overall.
A thorough cleansing prepares the skin for the later steps and encourages the skin to take in nutrients, which contributes to real rejuvenation.
Chemical Peeling / Resurfacing
A chemical peel can seem daunting if you’ve never tried one before, but it’s much easier than you might imagine. The peel contains carefully chosen acids to gently exfoliate the skin and reveal a fresh new layer. If you’re worried about how dull your skin is looking, the chemical peel / resurfacing step can take care of that.
During the extraction step, a cutting-edge suction tool pulls debris from pores in a simple and painless way. This leaves your pores clear and is kinder on the skin than traditional extraction, which involves metal implements.
Powerful moisturizers applied gently to the face provide nourishment and hydration, which is crucial after the extraction step.
Serums introduce key antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals to the skin for protection and to cultivate a stunning glow. Your skin should have a more balanced tone and a healthy feel after this step.
The final step in the HydraFacial treatment at a medical spa is LED light therapy. A state-of-the-art infrared device treats the skin to decrease any visible redness that may develop.
It also stimulates the production of collagen in the body, which is vital for strong, youthful skin. LED light therapy also encourages your body to produce vitamin D, essential for skin repair.
Is the HydraFacial Treatment Right for Me?
HydraFacials are designed to suit every skin type and create outstanding results for all.
This treatment could be ideal if you have hyperpigmentation, which causes discolored patches to appear across the skin. Hyperpigmentation is the result of excess melanin production, due to hormonal fluctuations, age, or prolonged sun exposure. Hyperpigmentation can develop anywhere on the body, including the face.
And visiting a medical spa for a HydraFacial treatment can tighten your skin and create a stronger, more youthful texture. Skin starts to sag with age as collagen production decreases, so skin becomes looser around the jawline, neck, and cheeks. But your skin will look tighter after a HydraFacial session.
Before your treatment, though, your beauty specialist will provide a consultation to learn essential details about your medical history and anything else they should know. This is critical to ensure that this is the right treatment for you.
Do I Need to Plan for Any Downtime?
You need to think about recovery and downtime before you visit a medical spa for any treatment. Fortunately, the HydraFacial requires no downtime for your skin to recover. That’s great news if you plan to go back to work after your treatment.
You might experience a little redness on your face, but you should also notice that your skin looks fresher and more hydrated than before. However, avoid washing your face or doing any exercise likely to make you sweat for the rest of the day. Sweat could interfere with the serums applied to your face and reduce their effectiveness.
Are There Any Risks with HydraFacial?
HydraFacials are generally safe for most people, but it may not be right for you if you have certain skin conditions like rosacea, rashes, or even sunburn.
Redness is a natural result of the treatment and is temporary only. You will have a chance to discuss your skin health, and potential risks, during your pre-treatment consultation at a medical spa.
How Long Does HydraFacial Take?
An efficient medical spa team typically completes a HydraFacial treatment within one hour, though the duration may vary. You can fit your session into even the busiest schedule and rejuvenate your skin without disrupting your routine.
How Often Do I Need a HydraFacial Treatment?
If you’re in love with your skin after a HydraFacial and can’t wait for your next visit to a medical spa, you may need to wait two to four weeks for a follow-up session. We’ll recommend a sensible time to wait based on the condition of your skin.
