Hydrafacial treatment employs a machine with a handheld device and uses four different kinds of HydroPeel tips and numerous skincare solutions such as chemical exfoliants, antioxidants, and hydrating serums like hyaluronic acid to achieve results. The spiral design of the tips used along with Hydrafacial vacuum technology creates a vortex effect to easily displace and remove impurities while simultaneously introducing solutions.
Hydrafacial is a single step rejuvenation procedure that cleanses, exfoliates, detoxifies, extracts and hydrates and can be performed on all skin types —normal, sensitive, oily, aging. It further helps in improving fine lines, wrinkles, pore size, and hyperpigmentation.
Hydrafacial treatment has four steps:
Hydrafacials begin with a quick manual cleansing.
To achieve a deeper exfoliation, a combination of physical exfoliation using the tip and chemical exfoliation using peels is employed. The results are faster and devoid of the adverse effects of traditional peels.
A different tip is used to soften sebum with salicylic acid and suck away blackheads and sebum from open pores. HydraFacial is not effective for milia extraction.
The cleansed, extracted and exfoliated skin is ready to be permeated with antioxidants, peptides and hyaluronic acid, which keeps the skin hydrated and plump.
A Hydrafacial should be done by an experienced dermatologist. It is recommended to be carried out monthly once. This treatment has no downtime associated with it, so, it can be administered anytime and is mostly considered for skin rejuvenation before special occasions.
