What is Hydrafacial?
A hydrafacial is a resurfacing treatment that clears your pores out and hydrates your skin. It is a four-step treatment that cleanses, exfoliates, extracts, and hydrates the skin with serums that are infused into pores with the HydraPeel Tip.
The revitalizing HydraFacial treatment is very safe and gentle and does not irritate the skin. Because of this, it is an especially ideal treatment option for those with sensitive skin.
What Does Hydrafacial Treat?
By increasing skin health and cleansing the skin on a deep level, a HydraFacial treatment can address a number of issues:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Sun Damage/rough texture
- Enlarged pores
- Skin laxity
After a rejuvenating HydraFacial, the skin is left with a rosy glow. We are able to customize the serum used in your HydraFacial, so the exact issues that your treatment addresses will vary based on your needs.
How Does Hydrafacial Work?
The HydraFacial technology consists of a handheld device, that looks like a pen. It uses four different HydroPeel tips and various skin care solutions, including exfoliants, antioxidants, and hydrating serums. The spiral design of the tips creates a vortex effect to easily dislodge and remove impurities while simultaneously introducing solutions that exfoliate, hydrate and infuse your skin with antioxidants.
HydraFacials are convenient, comfortable, and completely painless, and they only require around twenty minutes to a half hour to complete. During a treatment session, the aesthetician will be moving the pen over your face, delivering different solutions at varying degrees of pressure while sucking up sebum and dead skin cells.
Two treatments over the course of a month may be needed before results can be seen, though in most cases, only a single treatment is required.
After Your Hydrafacial
Because the HydraFacial is a gentle and non-invasive technique, it does not necessitate any downtime or recovery period. The only side effect is a small degree of temporary redness in the treatment area.
Avoid exposing your face to water for around six hours after the HydraFacial, since water can reactivate the peel. Do not wear makeup for the rest of the day, and avoid chemical exfoliants for two days following your treatment.
Flaking of dead skin cells can occur a couple days after the HydraFacial, and it may persist for a day or two. This is normal exfoliation and will uncover smooth new skin in the area.
You will need to stay away from saunas, hot showers, and other situations involving extreme heat for twenty-four hours. Proper sunscreen will be very important for protecting your new healthy skin cells, since they will be especially vulnerable to sun damage for around a week.
