If you follow the latest trends in skincare you might have heard about HydraFacial. Though its popularity has surged recently, the company has been around for over 20 years. That tells us they aren’t new to this game and definitely know what they’re doing.
So, what exactly is the HydraFacial treatment? How does it work? What effects does it have? And finally, are the effects of HydraFacial permanent? We will answer all of these questions and more; but first, let’s look at what the treatment entails:
What is HydraFacial Treatment?
HydraFacial is a skin treatment regimen that aims to exfoliate, remove debris from your pores, and provide hydration to your skin. Let’s be clear, just because the word “facial” is in the name doesn’t mean the treatments are limited to just the face. With this device, we can treat any problem area. In addition to treating your face we can treat your neck and décolletage, give you an incredible back-facial, and treat that pesky keratosis pilaris- you know, those bumps on your upper arms and/or maybe your thighs. We can even treat your scalp for fine or thinning hair, but we’ll get into that later. HydraFacial’s 20+ years of experience allows them to make use of patented technology and unique serums you can only get through them.
How Does HydraFacial Work?
The HydraFacial treatment uses a hand help device, HydroPeel Tips, and their patented vortex delivery system. The use of their specialty tips in conjunction with a small vacuum creates a vortex effect to remove old layers of skin and dislodge debris from your pores. At the same time, the patented HydraFacial cleansers and serums are applied to hydrate your skin.
That may sound a little confusing, so let’s break it down a little further. In essence, a HydraFacial certified esthetician will use a small device that vacuums up old skin while applying a hydrating serum. This clears out dead skin, revealing the fresh layer of skin underneath. The suction also painlessly clears pores and any impurities from the top layers of your skin. Finally, the serum hydrates your skin, while also saturating the surface with antioxidants and peptides. The entire procedure could be done over your lunch break.
What Are the Effects?
HydraFacial is used to help a number of skin issues related to sun exposure, hormonal imbalances, and aging. Here are some of the main issues that HydraFacial can address:
- Fine lines.
- Skin elasticity.
- Skin texture.
- Color spots.
- Oily skin.
- Dry skin.
- Enlarged pores.
- Sun-damaged skin.
In short, HydraFacial is designed to make your skin feel healthier and look younger!
Is HydraFacial Permanent?
No, HydraFacial treatment does not produce permanent results. In fact, it is recommended that you get HydraFacial treatment as often as once per month to maintain firm, glowing skin. You’ll likely see the effects of a HydraFacial treatment within minutes. However, those positive effects will begin to fade after 7 days because our skin is constantly regenerating.
While HydraFacial is a great facial treatment to help your skin’s appearance, you shouldn’t get it done too often. Removing the top layer of skin more than once or twice per month could leave your skin exposed to damage from the sun or skin products. Thus, it is not recommended to get treatment every week. Though you will see the effects fade over time, the more often you get HydraFacial treatment, the stronger the results will be!
