Everything You Need to Know About HydraFacials
What is a HydraFacial Treatment?
The HydraFacial is a new trend that involves a skin resurfacing method that is non-invasive and non-ablative. A HydraFacial treatment makes use of the latest technology in exfoliating the skin known as hydradermabrasion.
It works by blasting the skin with vitamin-infused and oxygenated water through a wand. The wand also comes with a specialized resurfacing tip that works on lifting off dead skin cells. This wand also uses a vacuum action, called vortex technology, which sucks up oil, dirt that is trapped inside clogged pores, makeup, and dead skin cells.
The pressure caused by the water in combination with the resurfacing-tip that physically scrapes the skin, along with suction from the vacuum, results in a gentle yet highly effective resurfacing treatment.
What Are The Steps?
A HydraFacial usually involves four steps:
- Exfoliation and cleansing,
- Glycolic peel,
- Extraction, and
- Infusing a serum.
Each step is administered through the wand using different attachments. The wand works on blasting out the vitamin-enriched water while vacuuming up the debris-ridden, old and dirty water at the same time. The overall sensation feels similar to cool air that moves in blasts across your face.
The HydraFacial increases lymphatic drainage and is very relaxing at the same time.
What Is a Hydrafacial Good for?
It is more commonly used to improve common skin conditions such as enlarged or clogged pores, wrinkles, and fine lines, brown spots, hyper-pigmentation, and oily skin. Getting a HydraFacial removes dead skin cells, extracts impurities, and cleanses your skin while bathing it in hydrating and revitalizing serums. The result is radiant, healthy-looking skin.
Your HydraFacial treatment can:
- Even out your skin tone
- Shrink pores
- Smooth out rough skin
- Improve elasticity and firmness
- Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
- Alleviate oily and congested skin
- Fade brown spots and other sun damage
- Hydrate skin
- Improve acne
- Remove blackheads
- Stimulate collagen production
Who Is It For?
These treatments are ideal for any person that wants skin that looks younger, regardless of age. This is also a great facial if you have sensitive or dehydrated skin that is susceptible to redness. This treatment is effective and safe on all skin colors and types.
How Long Do Effects Of A HydraFacial Last?
The hydrating effects from a HydraFacial treatment should last for a week, sometimes more. To achieve long-term benefits from these treatments, it is important to attend all your HydraFacial treatment sessions, followed by your maintenance appointments. This will help with maintaining longer lasting results, as well as giving your skin hydration and the care it needs.
How to Make the Results Last Longer Between Treatments
There are a few things you should be doing at home if you would like to extend your results and make sure your skin looks refreshed and healthy until the next session.
Making sure you drink enough water is important for both your skin and your body. If you are drinking at least 8 glasses daily, you will soon notice an improvement. Staying hydrated will also assist your skin in staying elastic and plump while flushing out any harmful toxins that are linked with causing skin problems such as acne.
Another important tip includes using a daily moisturizer. This will also help to trap in the moisture and keep your skin hydrated. This is perhaps the most important product that you should never skip out when it comes to your daily skin-care routine.
How Often Should I Go For A HydraFacial?
Similar to other skincare treatments, HydraFacial should be used to match up to your unique skin care goals and needs. The frequency linked to when you should be going for a HydraFacial will depend on your skin condition, type and the overall goal you have in mind.
If you are just starting a new skin-care regimen, or when you are working towards correcting skin issues which can include pigmentation, scarring, or acne, it is highly recommended to follow a treatment plan. Ideally, you should be aiming to have a HydraFacial done every 2 weeks. When your skin starts to show signs of improvement, you can move onto a maintenance schedule, by going for a HydraFacial once every month.
