Keep reading to find out why the HydraFacial™ is one of the most in-demand treatments. 

So, what exactly is a HydraFacial?

The HydraFacial is a four-step hydradermabrasion treatment that uses patented Vortex-Fusion technology to cleanse, extract, and hydrate the skin for a healthy glow. It is gentle and produces immediate results with no redness or irritation.

Clients adore the HydraFacial treatment, and science aside, it’s a satisfying treatment that will leave you feeling revitalized and on your way to clearer, healthier skin.

Before we start treatment, our estheticians perform a thorough examination of your skin to determine its sensitivity and select the appropriate serums and treatment strength. Fortunately, HydraFacial treatments are suitable for all skin types, including normal, oily, sensitive, and aging skin.

A typical HydraFacial involves these four steps:

Step 1: Exfoliate and renew

Our skin cells are constantly dying and regenerating. As dead skin cells build up, it can cause your complexion to look dull. They eventually shed on their own, but exfoliation speeds up the process so your skin looks smoother, clearer, and feels healthier. Your complexion will also look more radiant. 

The esthetician will remove the dead skin cells with a deplaning tool. Additionally, it aids in pore opening, which helps increase skin hydration.

Step 2: Cleanse and peel

The HydraFacial's second step goes even further by enhancing the exfoliation's positive effects with a chemical solution. To get rid of any remaining dirt and debris without harming your skin, we use a mild chemical peel. Your esthetician will begin by gently resurfacing to reveal a new layer of skin. 

Step 3: Hydrate and extract

Your clogged pores are literally vacuumed clean of all the debris thanks to a special wand that has a suctioning function. We also use moisturizers that hydrate and nourish the skin during this process, which is simpler than it sounds, because the acid peel helped release all the debris from your pores beforehand. 

Step 4: Nourish and protect

Finally, to maximize your glow, we saturate the skin's surface with antioxidants and peptides.

This final portion of the facial unifies the entire course of treatment. The collagen and antioxidant serum that the wand applies to the skin helps your skin stay hydrated and elastic. The serums we use reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, uneven skin tones, sun damage, and hyperpigmentation.

Benefits of a HydraFacial

Here are some of the many benefits of this revolutionary facial:

Zero downtime

The HydraFacial is a gentle, yet powerful treatment that provides noticeable results. The best part? You can leave our office and return to your regular activities without skin peeling or temporary post-treatment changes.

Additionally, it provides almost immediate results, with significant texture and fine line improvement. Depending on the base health of your skin, your provider may recommend multiple sessions for optimal results.

Addresses various skin concerns

The HydraFacial procedure's capacity to address and treat a range of skin issues is another reason why many people favor it. A HydraFacial can be tailored to address the specific needs of your skin, whether you struggle with oily skin and acne, dry and flaky skin, enlarged pores, loose skin, lines and wrinkles, or hyperpigmentation.

Combines with other treatments

You don't want to be constrained to just one or two treatments when you finally find the time to pause from your hectic life for a day of self-care. The HydraFacial skin treatment blends well with other therapies. The majority of procedures can be completed on the same day as a HydraFacial, allowing you to extend your spa day with additional pampering.

Instant and consistent results

Who has the time to wait for beauty treatments to take effect or to recover from them with today’s busy schedules? With immediate, consistent results, and no downtime, you can resume your daily activities or leave for an important event with confidence that your skin will look its best.

Beneficial for all age groups

The HydraFacial is an effective treatment for people of all ages, whether you’re a teenager with acne or an adult with hyperpigmentation and sunspots. The HydraFacial procedure is well-tolerated by even the most sensitive skin.
