What Are the Benefits of a HydraFacial?

If you’re looking to obtain a youthful glow, clear skin, and deep hydration, look no further than a HydraFacial. HydraFacial benefits are numerous for those seeking a non-invasive alternative to bright skin. It’s safe for all skin types and tones, and it can be performed in under an hour. 

What Is a HydraFacial?

HydraFacial is a type of facial involving multiple steps for cleansing and exfoliating the skin, followed by maximum hydration through the use of customized lotions. It’s a very gentle facial treatment that provides numerous benefits to those seeking a bright complexion and even skin tone. 

During the treatment, a handheld device is used to remove dead skin cells and other debris. There is a mild sucking action, resulting in hydradermabrasion of the top layer of the skin and revealing a brighter, clearer layer below. Following the use of the device, our trained aesthetician will perform pore extractions for any remaining blackheads or clogged areas of the skin. 

Afterward, serums will be used to infuse the skin with soothing, hydrating lotions that include various antioxidants and ingredients to moisturize and promote anti-aging of the skin. 

Undergoing regular HydraFacial treatments can result in reduced fine lines and wrinkles, smaller pores, and clearer skin over time. They may also be combined with other treatments such as laser, IPL, and chemical peels for maximum benefits.

What Are the Steps Involved in a HydraFacial Treatment?

The HydraFacial involves multiple steps. These include:

Cleansing

The first step of the HydraFacial is a deep cleansing of the pores. While topical washes and scrubs provide some exfoliating action, the tools used in a HydraFacial are able to reach much deeper into the pores of the skin. The cleansing process will include a mild peel to help shed the dead top layer of skin cells and uncover the radiance of the skin underneath.

Extraction

Next, a vacuum-like tool will be used to remove blackheads and any other blockages that are preventing the skin from breathing. The vacuum also promotes a greater level of circulation and removal of excess dead skin cells and dirt. The extraction part of the HydraFacial — hydradermabrasion — is important for getting rid of the deeper level of waste that sometimes forms over time in the pores.

Hydrate

The facial includes a targeted serum delivered especially to meet your skin’s needs. This serum will contain a host of ingredients including antioxidants, peptides, and collagen. All of these ingredients promote healing, hydration, and anti-aging. Depending on your skin type, we may include other creams that encourage collagen production and target fine lines and wrinkles.

Protection

Following the facial, we will apply moisturizer and sunscreen to protect the skin and keep it hydrated. This gives the skin protection from any UV rays as you return to your regular activities. Most people find the HydraFacial to be highly relaxing and truly love the results of their treatment.

What Are the Benefits of a HydraFacial?

HydraFacial benefits are numerous. They include:

Non-Invasive

A HydraFacial is completely non-invasive. This means there are no injections or cuts made to the skin, and only external tools are used to promote the removal of debris and dirt that fills up our pores and dulls our complexion. It can be completed within an hour at most, allowing you to return to your day directly afterward.

Brightens the Skin

Since hydrafacials help to remove dead surface-level skin buildup and remove impurities, the appearance of hyperpigmentation may be reduced. Dull skin is often caused by the buildup of dirt and dead skin cells, and removing these areas through hydradermabrasion helps to reveal clearer skin underneath. Continuing with a regular HydraFacial treatment plan further helps to remove spots of hyperpigmentation.

Clears Clogged Pores

During the extraction process and the application of a light chemical peeling agent, we’ll dislodge and partially dissolve comedones. This process will also remove accumulations of dirt, excess sebum, and dead skin cells that often become trapped inside skin cells. The vacuuming action of the HydraFacial tool further removes these impurities, allowing for an overall deep cleansing.

Lighten the Appearance of Scars

Scars occurring on the face often occur as a result of the healing process from a cut or blemish. Their appearance is further enhanced by the buildup of collagen that may be uneven, resulting in a slightly raised appearance that may be lighter or darker than the normal skin tone. 

The exfoliating effect of the HydraFacial smooths the skin, softening the edges of scars and lightening their appearance over time, and with multiple treatments.

Reduces the Appearance of Large Pores

It’s common for pores to appear larger than they truly are due to the buildup of accumulated dead skin cells, dirt, and other impurities. The removal of all of these items helps unclogged pores to appear smaller. While pore size is generally genetic and can’t be reduced, unclogging of the pores can result in a visible reduction in their appearance. 

Provides Relief for Some Forms of Acne

The exfoliating and pore-cleansing effects of a HydraFacial benefits those who have comedonal types of acne, such as blackheads. The deep cleansing and extraction parts of this treatment result in the removal of dead skin cells and promote clearer skin. Serums applied afterward can help to reduce naturally occurring oil in the skin, helping to prevent blackheads from returning.
