HydraFacial: The Ultimate Skincare Solution for Radiant Complexion

Updated: Sep 1, 2023

What is a HydraFacial?

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 quenching skin with vital nutrients like antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid. The amazing results are both instant and long-lasting.⁠

How does it work?

The HydraFacial is similar to another treatment called microdermabrasion.

Microdermabrasion uses a mildly abrasive instrument to gently sand your skin, removing the thicker, uneven outer layer.

That said, it’s not exactly microdermabrasion, and some people say it’s far better. The HydraFacial device uses an exfoliating tip paired with suction to remove dead skin cells from the surface of your face. After the skin is exfoliated, serums based on your skin type and concerns will be infused into the skin. That last step is the key reason proponents say it’s so effective.

There are three steps in the HydraFacial treatment, with no downtime and the entire treatment can be done in as little as 30 minutes.

What are the 3 steps included in a HydraFacial treatment?

Cleanse and Peel

This is the resurfacing step, when skin is exfoliated. “Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells from the outer layer of the skin. It has long been known to have beneficial skin effects, including leaving the skin looking brighter, unclogging pores, and — with long-term use — increasing collagen production.

Extract and Hydrate

The tip gets gunk out of pores and delivers topical moisturizers simultaneously.

Infuse and Protect

Your treatment will finish with “boosters,” or serums. These are geared toward your skin goal, which may include reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, dull skin, or enlarged pores. The treatment is entirely customizable through these “boost” serums, which is a major perk for patients.

Who should avoid this treatment?

The HydraFacial is appropriate for all skin types, according to the company. But you should avoid a HydraFacial if you have an active rash, sunburn, are pregnant or have moderate to severe acne or rosacea. You may need to avoid certain skincare products before and after your treatment and will be given pre and post care instructions before your treatment.
