There is a very good chance that if you were to open your Instagram app right now that you will see an influencer or model getting a HydraFacial. Skincare is self-care and a HydraFacial treatment may just be what you need to implement into your #SelfcareSundays.
Ideal for sensitive skin, the HydraFacial is the perfect treatment to clear your skin without causing any damage, redness or irritation. The pore-cleansing technology is incredibly soft on the skin, but still very effective in the clearing of the skin. Combined with the densely hydrating serum to help to stimulate collagen production.
What Is a HydraFacial?
But what is a HydraFacial you ask? It is a 3-step process that reduces wrinkles, fine lines, texture and large pores. The HydraFacial process involves:
Step one: Cleansing and exfoliating the skin
Your skincare expert will cleanse your skin with specially formulated serums with active ingredients to remove dirt, dead cells and oils followed by applying glycolic and salicylic acids to prepare skin for extraction.
Step two: Extract and hydrate
The HydraFacial uses what is described as a “face vacuum” that suctions gunk and debris out of your pores while actives in the serum kill bacteria and hydrate your skin at the same time
Step three: Nourish the skin
The final step in the HydraFacial treatment involves saturating the skin with boosters that combat hyperpigmentation and acne as well as peptides for an anti-ageing effect. Your facialist will also apply an antioxidant serum to the skin for deep hydration and protection from damage. This step aims to maximize your glow and give your skin a nice, fresh look.
After your HydraFacial treatment, you will immediately see some of the HydraFacial benefits—it’s simply that effective! A hydrafacial before-and-after comparison shows the difference in the hydration and plumpness of the skin.
You will also notice a great improvement in your skin in terms of wrinkles and fine lines. Moreover, HydraFacial results include minimizing dark spots and blemishes. Hydrafacials for acne have also proven to be very effective.
HydraFacial vs. Microdermabrasion
While the two popular treatments may seem similar, they are most definitely not the same. The Hydrafacial is the next generation of microdermabrasion. Unlike microdermabrasion, the HydraFacial gives better results without any downtime, dryness or redness after the treatment.
Moreover, the HydraFacial is not simply a method of deep cleaning and deep exfoliation, it is also a form of pore cleaning and skin hydration with long-lasting effects! And it doesn’t hurt nor cause any irritation to the skin.
Microdermabrasion treatment, on the other hand, only exfoliates the upper layer of the skin using tiny crystals to remove dead surface skin cells without cleaning your pores or providing any nourishment to your skin.
Keeping all this in mind you can see why the HydraFacial treatment is worth all of the hype that it gets from influencers, models and skincare lovers alike.
