Who doesn’t want beautiful, smooth, bright, youthful-looking skin? It’s greatly sought after, but many people don’t want to spend the time (or money) on time-consuming procedures. Luckily, there is a relatively new procedure called, HydraFacial. According to Allure, a HydraFacial is performed every 15 seconds. There is no secret as to why it’s become one of the most popular skin care procedures.
What is HydraFacial?
Similar to the Microdermabrasion procedure, HydraFacial takes it a step further. Unlike the microdermabrasion, the HydraFacial device uses an exfoliating tip that’s paired with suction to remove dead skin cells, blackheads, and any other yucky gunk that may be on the surface of your face. While exfoliating the skin, serums are infused to moisturize the skin. The procedure is divided into three sections and only lasts 30 minutes.
The first step is Cleanse + Peel. HydraFacial uncovers a new layer of skin with gentle exfoliation. This leaves the skin looking brighter while unclogging pores and increasing collagen production. The second step is Extract + Hydrate. This uses a pain-less suction to remove debris from pores while nourishing skin with a hydrating moisturizer. The final step is Fuse + Protect. HydraFacial saturates the skin with antioxidants and peptides, or rather “boosters.” These are used to help maximize your glow and tackle your skin care concerns, such as reducing fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, or enlarged pores.
HydraFacial vs. Microdermabrasion
You may be wondering what the difference is between HydraFacial and Microdermabrasion. Well, there are quite a few. While Microdermabrasion uses a manual treatment, HydraFacial uses a vacuum-like tip for a deeper extraction. The HydraFacial is also hydrating the skin while removing debris from skin, unlike the Microdermabrasion that is gently sanding your skin. HydraFacial is far more relaxing, effective, non-irritating, and immediately effective.
Benefits of HydraFacial
Along with exfoliation, the HydraFacial can improve hydration, radiance, and even skin texture and pore size. It’s really great if you have acne, fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, and oily and congested skin. It works on all skin types. So if you have sensitive skin, no problem! HydraFacial avoids causing redness by not using pore-softening steam, and with the suction tip being used instead of manual squeezing of skin, those with sensitive skin can enjoy a deep clean without inflammation.
The procedure is also painless. With liquid being deposited with every touch on the skin by the vacuum-like tip, there is no feeling of scraping or skin pulling. The process is very gentle without any unpleasant reactions or burning. Many patients actually find the procedure relaxing. It is often compared to getting a light massage.
The results for the HydraFacial are almost instantaneous. This is especially true for visible pores and fine lines. You can witness the enhanced firming and improved texture and complexion almost immediately. Expect to leave your HydraFacial appointment with bright and glowing skin.
The very best part of HydraFacial is it’s customizable. There are many serums that can be used to treat certain skin issues. So whether you are a young teen with acne or an older adult battling wrinkles, there is a serum for you. These serums are made with nourishing ingredients. These ingredients include glycerin, Oligopeptide-68, nonapeptide-1, diglucosyl gallic acid, n-acetyl glucosamine, growth factors, octapeptide-3, palmitoyl dipeptides-5, vitamin C, and alpha-arbutin. Your skin professional will be able to tell you which combination of ingredients best benefit you.
