What is a Hydr@Facial & What Are the Benefits?
Hydr@Facials have become one of the most popular facial trends in the modern world, and it’s no wonder why. With gentle non-invasive treatment and no downtime but GREAT results, more and more people are turning to the Hydr@Facial as their primary functional, integrative facial skincare spa routine.
But why is the Hydr@Facial so popular?
Hydr@Facials have become the facial spa care routine of choice because they are non-invasive yet effective and can be used for almost any skin condition and on any type of skin. Hydr@Facial treatments are far less invasive than traditional facials such as chemical peels or laser resurfacing which leave your skin red and irritated for hours to days after treatment. Because of the noninvasiveness and effectiveness of the treatment, Hydr@Facials are a great choice for teens as well as adults.
What is a HydraFacial?
A HydraFacial is a facial treatment using a patented device to deliver exfoliation, cleansing, extraction, and hydration to the face. This system uses a vortex swirling action to deliver hydration and to remove dead skin, dirt, debris, and impurities while cleaning and soothing your skin.
A Hydr@Facial includes 4 facial treatments rolled into one session: cleansing and exfoliating, a gentle chemical peel, vacuum suction extraction, and a hydrating serum. These steps are delivered using a patented HydraFacial device (which looks like a large rolling cart with hoses and a wand with detachable heads). Unlike traditional facial treatments that can have different effects depending on your skin type and aesthetician, the Hydr@Facial provides consistent results and can be used on all skin types.
The cleansing, exfoliation, chemical peel, collagen building, and facial muscle relaxing provided by a HydraFacial helps treat many of the beauty issues individuals experience today, including large pores, wrinkles, breakouts, and thinning skin.
Hydr@Facial treatments are often used in conjunction with LED light therapy. Blue light can help with acne while red light can help reduce the visibility of wrinkles.
What Happens During a Hydr@Facial Treatment?
A Hydr@Facial treatment takes on average 30 minutes. If this is your first HydraFacial appointment, here’s what to expect:
1 – Cleansing & Exfoliation
The first step during your Hydr@Facial is cleansing and exfoliation. Using a vortex cleansing and hydrating peel tip, your aesthetician will use the Hydr@Facial wand to gently cleanse and exfoliate the skin. This removes dead skin cells and sebum while gently opening your pores. Some people describe it like having a revolving electric toothbrush gently pressed to your skin.
2 – Chemical Peel
Next, your aesthetician will change the tip on the wand to deliver a gentle chemical peel. Unlike other chemical peels that are often irritating or painful and leave your skin red for hours or days, Hydr@Facials use a non-irritating mix of salicylic and glycolic acids for a gentle yet effective peel. The purpose of this step is to loosen deep pore debris.
3 – Extraction
The third step in a Hydr@Facial is extraction. This is where the device will use strong, painless vortex vacuum suction to remove blackheads and impurities from your pores. These impurities collect in a cup to be discarded.
4 – Serums for Hydration
Lastly, your aesthetician will use the Hydr@Facial wand to apply a soothing proprietary antioxidative and hydrating serum with peptides and other beneficial nutrients. This helps to detoxify, rejuvenate, and hydrate the skin.
After your treatment is complete, your aesthetician may also augment the service with additional procedures such as light therapy or fills. Hydr@Facials are gentle enough that you may complete other treatments during your visit.
How Often Should I Get a Hydr@Facial?
If you haven’t had a facial or hydration care routine in the past, it can be beneficial to start with 2-4 Hydr@Facials a month for about 3 months.
