A HydraFacial is a type of skincare therapy that uses a handheld device to gently cleanse, detoxify, exfoliate, extract and hydrate the skin in a single treatment session. It is a non-invasive procedure and can be used on all skin types, delivering a variety of benefits that make it an excellent choice for nearly anyone. Here’s what you can expect from a HydraFacial treatment:
A typical HydraFacial is a four-step process lasting 30-60 minutes. It begins with a licensed aesthetician using the HydraFacial wand to cleanse the skin (oftentimes on the face, but also anywhere else on the body). The swirling motion of the wand works to empty pores of dirt and oil, and the Activ4 solution it delivers helps to soften and condition the skin. Further exfoliation continues with the exchange of the wand’s tip, the scrubbing of which — combined with a gentle peel solution of glycolic acid and salicylic acid — brings about a deeper clean. Once this step is complete, a vacuum-like tip is attached to the wand to suck away debris (such as blackheads and sebum) and simultaneously deposit a hydrating solution aimed at calming and soothing the skin. Finally, an infusion of antioxidants and hyaluronic acid dispensed from the wand’s tip helps to keep skin hydrated and further alleviates irritation and redness, leaving the skin immediately refreshed and brightened.
The Benefits You Can Expect from a HydraFacial
A HydraFacial results in many benefits, both cosmetic and therapeutic. Studies indicate that HydraFacials can be used to:
- Combat Aging Issues — Of course, you can immediately expect to see improvement in the skin’s overall appearance following a HydraFacial procedure, including the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as the size of your pores, and a lessening of hyperpigmented spots. In addition, a HydraFacial results in enhanced skin elasticity and texture by replenishing essential hydrating nutrients underneath the skin’s surface. All in all, a HydraFacial is able to effectively diminish the signs of aging in less time and with less negative effects than many other types of skincare treatments.
- Treat Acne and Blackheads — HydraFacials actively slough off and remove debris from deep within pores, thus freeing the pores of the oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria that lead to blackheads and acne. A HydraFacial is a great choice for many clients wishing to treat acne and blackheads without prescription medication.
- Minimize Effects of Rosacea — HydraFacials have also been shown to minimize the effects of rosacea by balancing the cleansing of the skin with the adequate absorption of nutrients so that skin is no longer irritated and red.
