5 Reasons Why a Hydrafacial is Perfect For You
There’s no denying that there are so many skincare treatments out there, it can be hard to chose which one is best situated to your needs. From Anti-Wrinkle Creams and Acne Extractions, to Laser Skin Peels and Collagen-Boosting Injections, it seems like every complexion woe can be solved with a single treatment. But what if you have more than one skin problem? That’s where the HydraFacial comes in handy. The Hydrafacial treatment is the newest and most advanced non-laser skin resurfacing treatment that combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration and antioxidant protection simultaneously-delivering clearer, more beautiful skin. The treatment is used for a wide-variety of skin woes, including hyperpigmentation, brown spots, wrinkles, acne scarring and more. It’s like the holy grail of skin treatments! And because so, we’ve narrowed down a list of the top 5 reasons why a Hydrafacial is perfect for you, especially now that we’re approaching the fall and winter months, where hydration is imperative.
1. It’s good for all skin types.
As invigorating as the treatment may be, the Hydrafacial is actually a gentle, non-irritating procedure, making it great for all skin types-including those with sensitive skin. As with any treatment however, your physician or skincare professional may choose a specific treatment serum and/or customize the treatment a bit, for your unique skin conditions and needs.
2. There’s no downtime or pain.
The Hydrafacial is a simple and painless procedure, as it’s non-invasive and non-injecting. The treatment works by using a variety of different tools, to work together cohesively to gently deliver amazing results. In fact, the procedure is often described as feeling like a "cool paintbrush moving slowly over your face." And because this gently cooling sensation leaves nor pain or doesn’t render a recovering period, you may put on make-up and return to normal activities right after the treatment is complete.
3. It improves a variety of skin conditions.
The Hydrafacial is an amazing treatment for treating a wide-variety of skin conditions, including fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, brown spots, oily/clogged pores, acne scarring, and more.
4. It’s a quick and relaxing process.
As we mentioned earlier, there are 4 steps in a hydra-facial: cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, and hydration. Between the four, the treatment can take as little as 30 minutes to complete. During the cleansing and exfoliation process, a technician will use a small "deplaning" tool that opens up pores and sweeps the uppermost layer of makeup debris and dead skin cells away. Many describe the feeling like a spinning toothbrush was being run over their face. In the extraction process, a technician will what is called a vortex-extraction nozzle, which basically acts as a vacuum. But the best (or the worst?) is that the cup at the base of the machine shows exactly what was extracted—and it's usually more than most think. Lastly, during hydration application, a technician will use a vortex-fusion tool, which infuses an antioxidant and collagen-rich serum into the skin to promote elasticity and hydration. Sounds relaxing doesn’t it?
5. You’ll get amazing results.
As we mentioned earlier, the results from the Hydrafacial are incomparable and you can see amazing results even after just one single process. Clearer more vibrant skin, a beautiful glow, and a more radiant tone (to name a few). We recommend using a single treatment for those who need a fresh and glowing appearance for a special event or occasion. However, for those wanting to maintain healthy skin, especially those with problematic skin, we recommend getting a treatment each month.
