Hydrafacial: The best skin your skin has ever felt!

Wants clearer, more beautiful skin that looks as smooth and unlined as a baby’s face. The problem is that few of us are willing or want to go through the pain, process and pleasure with downtime associated with deep skin treatments. Yet, we still want the benefits. That’s why HydraFacials are the new skin treatment of all choices.

What exactly is a HydraFacial?

The HydraFacial treatment is a newer treatment that cleans, extracts dead cells, and exfoliates your skin. It is performed using a machine that combines four facial procedures into just one treatment. The HydraFacial rejuvenates skin by using a serum tailored to your skin type and infused with all sorts of goodies for your skin!

HydraFacials are generally used to fix skin concerns such as fine lines, dark spots, clogged or enlarged pores, hyperpigmentation, and mild acne.

HydraFacial and Microdermabrasion Pros and Cons

Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive treatment that removes the outer layer of skin, to help rejuvenate the skin underneath. This treatment is considered safe for a majority of skin types and skin colors. It’s generally used as an option for people concerned with wrinkles, stretch marks, enlarged pores, sun damage, and dull skin.

HydraFacials are very similar to microdermabrasion, to the point where they’re even called hydradermabrasion! However, microdermabrasion treatments use manual extractions and HydraFacial treatments use a vacuum-like tip to cleanse deeper down than a manual extraction can. Because of the difference in these methods, HydraFacials are considered a generally more effective and gentler method.

If you’re trying to decide between these treatments, it will boil down to specific concerns with your skin. One positive that microdermabrasion, has is a proven reduction in the visibility of any stretch marks. The HydraFacial treatment doesn’t specialize in that skin concern. So, if stretch marks aren’t a major concern for you – a HydraFacial might be your best bet!

It’s also good to note that microdermabrasion treatments do have the possibility of altering your skin’s color tones and can leave behind darker or lighter spots. Microdermabrasion is a

great option for anyone whose main concern is stretch marks, and those who aren’t worried about possible skin color imbalances after the treatment is over.

So, why are HydraFacials loved by patients worldwide? There are five well-known benefits that every patient can expect.

Benefits of HydraFacial

No Downtime with a HydraFacial: In just around 40 minutes, a HydraFacial can give you clearer, more radiant skin with little to zero irritation, meaning virtually no downtime. According to dermatologist Joshua Zeichner, MD, who spoke with Refinery 29[3], “The treatment has become extremely popular because it has virtually no downtime and can improve skin glow, hydration, and radiance in less than 1 hour”.

No special preparation is required, and patients can return to their normal activities (including wearing makeup) immediately after treatment. Best yet, you’ll witness a camera-ready reduction in visible pores and fine lines with better skin texture, firmness, and a brighter, glowing complexion.

HydraFacial Works on Sensitive Skin: HydraFacials avoid causing excessive redness (dilating blood vessels in the skin) by not using pore-softening steam. This means that the treatment even works for individuals with sensitive skin. And since vacuum-powered extraction is used instead of manual squeezing or lancing of the skin, individuals with sensitive skin can enjoy a deep clean without inflammation.

In addition, a HydraFacial can be dialed-in and customized for an array of skin concerns depending on the patient’s needs. Whether you’re a teenager with acne or an older patient with sun damage and hyperpigmentation, it can work for you. The only individuals who should avoid a HydraFacial are those with active rashes, sunburns, or rosacea.

The HydraFacial Procedure is Virtually Painless: Because liquid is deposited with every swipe of the treatment wand (which is a smooth, plastic-tipped wand), patients will never feel scraping or skin pulling. There’s no needling, pinching, abrasion, or anything else. The process is very

gentle without any uncomfortable burning or unpleasant reactions. In fact, many patients find treatment enjoyable and relaxing.

The Result is Younger-looking, Glowing, Healthier Skin: The treatment works instantly on visible pores and fine lines. Patients will witness enhanced firmness and improved texture and complexion, immediately, and they’ll see all their blackheads vanish without a trace. You can expect to leave your HydraFacial treatment with a brighter complexion and glowing skin.

Overall, a HydraFacial can be used to address a variety of skin care needs, including:

  •   Fine lines and wrinkles
  •   Elasticity and firmness
  •   Even tone and vibrancy
  •   Skin texture
  •   Brown spots
  •   Oily and congested skin
  •   Enlarged pores.The HydraFacial produces consistent results that patients can count on time and time again. It’s reliably safe and effective at improving the current condition of your skin. And by providing an infusion of essential vitamins, moisture, and antioxidants to your skin, it helps fight the early signs of aging and protects from environmental pollution and harmful free radicals.The HydraFacial Treatment is Customizable: The specific formulation of ingredients in your HydraFacial serum can do everything from specifically target dark spots and sun damaged areas to addressing fine lines and skin tone evenness, diminishing wrinkles, and brightening skin tone. Based on your needs, you can ask your skincare professional to calibrate your treatment to your exact issues.HydraFacials are performed with unique, one-of-a-kind (award-winning) super serums made of nourishing ingredients. These ingredients [7] include glycerin, Oligopeptide-68, nonapeptide-1,

diglucosyl gallic acid, n-acetyl glucosamine, growth factors, octapeptide-3, palmitoyl dipeptides- 5, vitamin C, and alpha-arbutin.

Depending on the exact combination of ingredients your skin care professional chooses, you’ll get the results you want.

A HydraFacial is such a popular treatment because you get fantastic results without all the side effects typically associated with deep skin treatments. Compared to microdermabrasion, peels, and micro-needling, it is a painless procedure that can be completed in 30 minutes with no downtime. This makes it ideal for individuals who want healthy, beautiful skin immediately. It’s the perfect addition to anyone’s monthly skin routine.
