A HydraFacial is great for exfoliating and cleansing the skin. It’s one of the newest non-laser skin resurfacing treatments, and it combines hydration, extraction, exfoliation and cleansing. Most people would say that the treatment feels soothing, and there is virtually no downtime associated with it.
The procedure is suitable for almost every type of skin, and it’s even great for aging skin. A HydraFacial gets its name from the fact that it’s based on hydrating the skin.
When compared with other skin resurfacing techniques, the HydraFacial offers much better hydration. It’s used to remove dead skin and impurities while cleansing and bathing the skin in moisture.
The actual treatment involves the use of several serums. It can provide immediate results, and it’s refreshing, soothing and doesn’t cause irritation.
Who is a Candidate for a HydraFacial?
Since the procedure can work well for all skin types, it’s available to almost anyone. It’s even great for individuals who have sensitive skin. However, ideal candidates won’t have too much skin sensitivity. If you have any serious skin conditions, then this might not be an ideal procedure for you.
How Long Does the Procedure Take?
When compared with alternative treatments, the HydraFacial is much faster. In many cases, it can be finished in less than 30 minutes.
Many patients say the procedure feels like a cool paintbrush moving across the face. Immediately after the procedure is finished, you can apply makeup and continue with your daily activities. There is virtually no downtime involved.
How Long Do the Results Last?
The hydration and smooth results provided by a HydraFacial have the potential to last for longer than seven days. Ideally, patients will undergo at least six treatments.
After the treatments, patients should see a noticeable reduction in the appearance of hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, acne and fine lines. The best results may be obtained when patients receive ongoing treatments every two to four weeks.
How the HydraFacial Differs from Microdermabrasion
Many patients want to know how this procedure differs from microdermabrasion and similar treatments. The truth is that the HydraFacial is a form of hydradermabrasion similar to microdermabrasion, but it’s a form of treatment that is available to a much larger pool of candidates.
What Results Can I Expect?
A large percentage of patients notice results after the first treatment, but for optimal results, three or more treatment sessions may be needed.
