The Hydra Facial, also referred to as HydraDermabrasion is similar to microdermabrasion because it exfoliates the skin. But while microdermabrasion uses aluminum oxide crystals to achieve these results, the Hydra Facial is a multi-step process that uses chemical exfoliates paired with deep hydration. The Hydra Facial bears some similarities to a regular facial, but it tends to offer more dramatic results.
Moreover, the Hydra Facial is far more soothing to the skin, so much so that it is commonly offered one to two weeks after more invasive procedures like chemical peels or laser treatment. Not only does the Hydra Facial effectively slough off dead skin after these treatments, but it also soothes and hydrates the skin.
BENEFITS OF A HYDRAFACIAL
The Hydra Facial thoroughly cares for your skin, providing cleansing, exfoliation, extractions, and hydration, including Vortex-Fusion of antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid. It also removes dead skin cells and extracts impurities while simultaneously bathing the new skin with cleansing, hydrating and moisturizing serums. The treatment is soothing, refreshing, non-irritating, non-invasive, non-surgical, and immediately effective.
HOW DOES A HYDRAFACIAL WORK?
Step 1: Deep Clean And Peel – The first step of the process uses a tip that essentially works like a vortex to clean out dirt and debris from deep within your pores. Additionally, during this step, the epidermal and dermal layers of the skin are exfoliated with a series of chemical exfoliants such as lactic acid, glycolic acid salicylic acid.
Step 2: Extraction – The second step of the Hydra Facial uses a tip that extracts or vacuums any remaining debris from clogged pores.
Step 3: Deep Hydration – The final step of the Hydra Facial uses a pen-like attachment to apply a hydrating serum (typically consisting of hyaluronic acid and peptides) to the skin.
The results of a Hydra Facial are immediate. Following the procedure, most people will notice brighter, more radiant skin, more even skin tone, and there should be no signs of irritation, redness, or peeling.
Moreover, the great thing about the Hydra Facial is that there is no downtime. And while there’s nothing specific to do regarding aftercare, it’s best to steer clear of any type of exfoliation or other invasive procedures following a Hydra Facial.
