A HydraFacial is one of the most powerful, non-invasive skin resurfacing treatments available today. It combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration and antioxidant protection that removes dead skin cells and impurities, while simultaneously delivering moisturizing serums into the skin. The word “hydra” in HydraFacial refers to it’s incredibly hydrating effect. The HydraFacial procedure itself is fast and efficient, only taking about 30 minutes to complete. Moreover, the results are instantly noticeable, and there is no recovery time needed.
A HydraFacial improves the appearance of:
Oily, acne-prone skin
Uneven skin tone
Fine lines and wrinkles
Enlarged and clogged pores
1. Suitable For All Skin Types
Whether your skin is oily and acne-prone, dry and flaky, or you have combination skin, you will benefit from a HydraFacial treatment. Even those with sensitive skin can safely enjoy multiple sessions!
2. Gentle On The Skin
Despite the fact that a HydraFacial involves both exfoliation and extraction, it is painless and non-irritating to the skin. Since it delivers hydrating serums, patients are left with a smooth, radiant, healthy glow. Some patients liken the sensation of getting a HydraFacial to a light face massage.
3. Zero Downtime
A HydraFacial only takes about 30 minutes from start to finish, and there is no downtime required after the treatment. The improvement in skin texture and tone can be noticed immediately, so patients do not need to recover or wait for redness to disappear. In fact, you can put makeup on and resume your normal activities immediately after treatment.
4. Can Be Paired With Other Treatments
HydraFacial's are non-invasive, meaning that patients can receive certain other skincare treatments in conjunction with a HydraFacial. Whether you want injectables or a non-ablative laser treatment, ask your esthetician about pairing a HydraFacial with another beautifying procedure to achieve your ideal aesthetic goals.
5. Fully Customizable
Your esthetician can tailor your HydraFacial treatment to your unique skin needs and aesthetic goals. Skin boosters such as the Brightline Boost or the Growth Factor Boost can be added to brighten the skin and remove fine lines and wrinkles. In addition, the suction power of the vacuum can be adjusted so that it is more gentle in delicate spots, such as the eye area.
