Are HydraFacials Worth the Hype?


The HydraFacial is the latest trend in clinical dermatology, that helps cleanse, exfoliate, and infuse the skin with beneficial serums. The device uses medical-grade hydra dermabrasion and a patented vortex tip helps brighten and plump. Everyone is a candidate for a HydraFacial, but before investing in this life-changing procedure, here is everything you need to know.  

How the Process Works

Age, UV rays, and acne are two leading causes for skin issues like enlarged pores, oily skin, sun or brown spots, and wrinkles. To combat these issues, the HydraFacial treatment uses a multi-step resurfacing process that renews the surface of the skin. The treatment is painless and involves cleansing, exfoliating, and extraction, before providing it with beneficial nutrients. The process unclogs pores, extracts impurities, and introduces serum to the dermal layer of the skin to stimulate healthy cell growth. The serum contains antioxidants and other beneficial elements which can help to repair the damage caused by free radicals.
It is a simple 3-step process that leaves your skin with better skin texture and tone.

1. Cleanse & Peel

The facial cleans and peels away dead skin while working to resurface an even skin tone.  

2. Extract & Hydrate

The device uses a specialized tip to help remove and suction out pimples, bacteria, and dirt. We then use moisturizers to quench the skin.

3. Fuse & Protect

The last step involves using antioxidants and peptides to penetrate the skin, which will not only give you a glow but it will also protect your skin.

Benefits of the HydraFacial

Besides achieving the best skin texture of your life and restoring your confidence, the HydraFacial can be used to do the following:

  • Create smoother skin
  • Brighten skin tone
  • Help elasticity
  • Decrease size of pores
  • Fight acne
  • Remove brown spots
  • Reduce oil
  • Soften fine lines


What Can You Expect After Treatment?

After a HydraFacial, there may be some swelling and redness, but this should resolve within 24 hours. Over time, fine lines and wrinkles decrease, pores become smaller, skin is firmer and more youthful. You’ll realize that the surface of the skin is cleaner, and looks healthier and more vibrant.
You should avoid washing your face or applying creams immediately after treatment, but your regular skincare regime can be resumed approximately 6 hours post-facial.
