Hydrafacial Q&A

What is a HydraFacial?

A HydraFacial is a manual exfoliation treatment that uses the power of water to remove layers of dead skin and impurities. That’s just the beginning of what a HydraFacial can do for your skin. 

The patented process also cleanses your skin and infuses it with intensive medical-grade serums to create an in-depth hydrating effect. These three processes all occur in just seconds as the HydraFacial treatment wand moves across the surface of your skin. 

Why is exfoliation so important?

Your skin is constantly renewing itself, growing new cells and shedding dead cells. That process moves forward on its own, but not always at an ideal rate. Your pores can become clogged with oil, dead skin cells, bacteria, and debris, leaving you at risk for breakouts and slowing cellular turnover. 

There’s also the issue of environmental pollutants to consider. As you move through each day your skin is exposed to all sorts of toxic substances, as well as plenty of normal dirt and debris. Exfoliation allows you to remove all of those dead skin cells and impurities to reveal a layer of fresh, healthy cells. 

Some of the issues a HydraFacial can address include:

  • FIne lines and wrinkles
  • Enlarged pores
  • Sun spots
  • Age spots
  • Textural irregularities
  • Lost elasticity and firmness
  • Tone irregularities

You can manually exfoliate with scrubs and textured pads or washcloths. Chemical peels use a chemical solution to exfoliate. Treatments like microdermabrasion and dermaplaning allow an aesthetic professional to manually remove those layers. But a HydraFacial takes exfoliation to the next level.

How does HydraFacial work?

The HydraFacial system uses a handpiece to create a vortex effect that directs a spray of water to the surface of your skin then immediately suctions the water and skin debris away. At the same time, the system delivers powerful serums to cleanse, hydrate, and moisturize.

The process is not painful and requires no advance preparation. It’s a bit different from a “standard” facial, but the results are well worth giving this innovative new approach a try. If you’re like most, you’ll book your next appointment before you leave the office after your first HydraFacial. 

You can even add a booster to get even more out of your treatment. There are options for skin brightening, discoloration, and anti-aging.
