The Amazing Benefits of a HydraFacial

share this post


Your skin becomes damaged, dull, and dry as you age due to the sun, the environment, poor diet, lifestyle stress, and genetic predispositions. Skin can benefit from almost any professional facial; however, HydraFacial offers incredible advantages. HydraFacial uses unique and patented technology to cleanse, extract, and hydrate your skin.

One of the most wonderful benefits of a HydraFacial is the experience. It is painless, and the results are stunning and instantly noticeable. Your aesthetic professional uses HydraFacial to polish and exfoliate your skin while simultaneously replenishing moisture. 

Cat Delp, RN, owner/operator at Aging Young Aesthetics in Duluth, MN, says, “HydraFacials have become a very important part of our aesthetic care plans. Between using good medical grade skin care such as AlumierMD and receiving the many skin treatments and chemical peels we offer, HydaFacials help our clients maintain their results. Many of our clients even receive HydraFacial Keravive Scalp treatments to help hydrate the scalp for healthier and fuller looking hair or our popular HydraBackFacial, which includes steam and a relaxing back massage”.

What is a HydraFacial?

The HydraFacial is a multistep facial that includes cleansing, exfoliation, pore extractions, and the infusion of personalized serums into the skin. Incredible facial rejuvenation treatment is safe for all skin types and tones if you want deep hydration and antioxidant protection. 

During the treatment, your aesthetician uses different “HydraPeel” attachments on a handheld device. The first step vacuums out dead skin cells and other pore-clogging debris delivers a mild peel, and infuses skin with soothing, hydrating, and anti-aging ingredients like antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, and Proteins.

The treatment can be tailored for your skin concerns and degree of sensitivity. For example, skin care professionals state that they will focus on cleaning if you have oily skin with a profusion of blackheads. If you experience texture issues, they use a peeling treatment with an aggressive glycolic acid. With a series of treatments, HydraFacial will give you more even-toned skin, clearer skin with less acne, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and smaller pores.

HydraFacial cleanses, extracts, and hydrates your skin. Exclusive and customized serums are made with antioxidants and Proteins for your skin. HydraFacial was developed to create a youthful complexion and give you a healthy glow. HydaFacials are safe for all skin colors. So, if you want refined texture, improved elasticity and firmness, enhanced vibrancy, and the elimination of unsightly brown spots and enlarged pores, the HydraFacial will be perfect for you.

How Does a HydraFacial Work?

HydraFacial provides a special treatment that delivers immediate and noticeable results without downtime using unique and patented Vortex-Fusion delivery systems. HydraFacial uses cleansing technology, plus exclusive vacuum ability and customized serums. The vacuum portion of HydraFacial uses Vortex power to remove and eradicate the impurities dulling your skin. In the same treatment, Vortex-Fusion technology provides hydration and nourishment to the skin. In addition, HydraFacial has the following benefits:

  • Smoothing and Refining: Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Firming and Restoring: Improves elasticity and firmness
  • Brightening: Lightened brown spots/hyperpigmentation
  • Improved skin tone and vibrancy
  • Improved skin texture
  • Improved oily and congested skin.
  • Reduction in size of pores
  • Calming of inflamed skin
  • Lip treatments
  • Eye treatments
  • Body treatments
  • Scalp treatments
  • Lymphatic drainage

Steps to a HydraFacial:

1. Find a Professional.

This treatment is relatively safe, but it requires professional-grade equipment operated by a licensed professional.

2. Cleanse and Exfoliate

Every facial begins with gentle cleaning of the face to remove surface debris. Next, your face is gently washed to clean off the surface debris. After this cleansing, you will experience gentle exfoliation that targets damaged areas and dull skin cells. 

The exfoliation process uses a pressurized, water-based solution. It is gentle for sensitive skin and powerful enough to rid the topmost layer of the skin of dead skin cells. As a result, a new layer of healthy, smooth skin is revealed beneath the surface.

3. Extract and Hydrate

Once your skin is exfoliated, the dirt particles and debris still in the skin are suctioned with a spiral suction top on the facial device. This device dislodges impurities and deeply cleanses and refreshes the skin. At the same time, a hydrating serum is applied.

4. Fuse and Protect

After your skin is hydrated, your skin’s surface will be gently saturated with a serum full of antioxidants and Proteins. These maximize your skin’s glow. The entire process is designed to help your skin look and feels more refreshed, healthy, and youthful.

What is the Difference between Microdermabrasion and a HydraFacial?

One question many patients ask is the difference between microdermabrasion and a HydraFacial. Some patients claim that microdermabrasion and a HydraFacial are essentially the same treatment, but a HydraFacial does not cause problems to those with sensitive or acne-prone skin. 

Microdermabrasion is a popular exfoliation treatment that uses a diamond-tipped device or micro-crystals to exfoliate the skin. Microdermabrasion is a strong and deep exfoliating treatment, but it can irritate sensitive skin and cause problems to those with hyperpigmentation or prone to acne breakouts.

Microdermabrasion can be accomplished in 30 minutes, and HydraFacial takes the same time; plus, no painful crystals or exfoliation is used against your skin. 

Before any treatment begins, schedule a consultation with a licensed medical skincare clinic.
