What Is a Hydrafacial Treatment?

If you have always wanted to add a facial to your skincare routine but you are unsure what kind of facial is right for you, the Hydrafacial is an excellent place to start. At BevelUp in Tampa, FL, we want to introduce you to a skincare treatment that is more than just a facial; it’s an experience. Not only can this hydrating facial prove your skin, but it can help you achieve beautiful, glowing skin from one month to the next.

What Is a Hydrafacial Treatment?

The Hydrafacial is a relaxing and hydrating skincare experience designed to help perfect skin and treat skin conditions through an intensive three-step process. This treatment is more than just your average facial because it can target and treat many skin conditions and leave you with a glow that will last for weeks.

Through deep cleansing, gentle exfoliation and resurfacing, and an infusion of hydrating serums, you will receive an all-encompassing skincare treatment that will target your problematic skin condition and provide your skin with exactly what it needs, right where it needs it.

What Does It Treat?

The Hydrafacial is so versatile because it can help individuals with all different skin issues and conditions achieve beautiful skin. It can help hydrate dry skin, improve hyperpigmentation and other pigment issues like melasma, age spots, and sunspots. It can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, shrink pore size, improve acne-prone skin, and deliver anti-aging benefits to problem areas like the lips in the eyes. It will also improve your skin texture and tone.

How Does It Work?

This facial includes a three-step process. It uses a Vortex-Fusion delivery system to perform each step. Each step is important because the step that follows is will build upon the work done in the one proceeding it. By the end of the facial, you will have a clean, renewed, and revitalized complexion that will continue to improve when you make this treatment a regular part of your monthly skincare routine.

Step One: Cleanse and Peel

The first step of this facial involves cleansing the skin. Your aesthetician will remove any makeup, dirt, and excess oil from your skin’s surface to prepare it for the next steps. Then, they will use the hand-held device to gently exfoliate and resurface the skin. This process removes dead skin cells from the top layer of the skin and gently resurfaces the skin to carefully reveal a new, fresh layer of skin that’s healthier and more youthful.

Step Two: Extract and Hydrate

Once your skin is thoroughly cleansed, your esthetician will begin the second step, including extractions and deep hydration. Using the wand as a vacuum, your aesthetician will gently pass the device across your skin surface to loosen and remove dirt and debris from your pores. This is such an effective process, thanks to the work that was done in step one.

By removing the dead skin cells, dirt, and debris from the surface of your skin, the exfoliation step opens up your skin so that it can then suction out dirt and debris. After extracting that dirt, debris, and oil from your pores, a hydrating solution will be infused into your skin to deep clean your pores and hydrate your entire face.

Step Three: Fuse and Protect

During the third and final step of this facial, we will deliver nutrient-rich serums to your new, fresh layer of skin to help hydrate and protect it. Step three is the step that helps you achieve that post-facial glow. The benefit of this treatment is that there are several different serums from which we can choose to help protect your new skin based on your needs and goals.

The Extra Benefits of Our Hydrafacials

When you schedule your Hydrafacial at BevelUp, you will get more than just a standard treatment. We add extra treatments to this facial that will help perfect your skin and improve your complexion.


Dermaplaning is one of the additional treatments that we will add to your hydrating facial. Dermaplaming a treatment that involves the use of a medical-grade scalpel to gently remove the dead skin cells and fine hair on the top layer of the skin to reveal a fresh, youthful layer beneath.

Dermaplaning is a very simple yet effective treatment. While it only involves the use of one tool, it effectively removes dead skin cells and that fine hair which can interfere with makeup application. Dead skin and fine hair can also trap bacteria, which promotes breakouts.

Customized Face Masks

We will end your treatment with a customized facemask that we will choose based on your skin’s needs. We can apply either a custom hydro-jelly or a charcoal mask to your skin. Each of these masks will target a different skin type and help improve certain skin conditions. The Hydro-jelly mask will provide intense moisture to the skin, while a charcoal mask will help balance the skin’s PH, address blemishes, blackheads, whiteheads, and breakouts.

LED Light Therapy

This treatment also includes LED light therapy, which is an effective treatment that can help perfect the skin. LED light therapy uses different colored LED lights to treat specific skin conditions. Green light can help brighten the skin and improve pigmentation issues like brown spots, melasma, pregnancy mask, and hyperpigmentation.

Red light helps improve collagen production beneath the skin’s surface and can reduce redness and inflammation, helping promote a more youthful-looking complexion. Blue light helps target the bacteria that sits on the skin’s surface and causes acne. Blue light destroys this bacteria and helps promote a clear complexion, address pre-existing blemishes, and prevents the development of new ones.

Facial Massage

Finally, the treatment will end with a relaxing facial massage. Facial massage is important because it helps increase skin circulation and oxygen beneath the skin to help eliminate toxins, improve blood flow, promote skin health, and give you that envy-worthy glow. Regular facial massage treatment can keep your skin looking younger and tighter. It helps flush out toxins, reduces puffiness. It’s basically like a workout for your face.
