With so many innovative, high-tech beauty treatments available today, it’s easy to overlook those that are more simplistic. However, sometimes beauty comes from the simple things in life. In the world of aesthetic medicine, the HydraFacial is one of those things. We enjoy performing this treatment, and do so often. In fact, the HydraFacial is one of the most widely-performed beauty treatments around the world today. It is a go-to for celebrities and has been touted by influencers as one of the most enjoyable procedures around today.
If you’re not familiar with the Hydrafacial, it’s time for a quick introduction. This treatment is a medical-grade resurfacing procedure that cleans out clogged pores and simultaneously hydrates the skin. It is available only in licensed med spas and medical facilities, and involves a four-step process of cleansing, exfoliating, extracting, and hydrating the skin.
HydraFacial treatment begins with a cleansing process that removes dead skin cells and excess oil from the epidermis. The provider then applies a combination of salicylic and glycolic acids. These chemicals break up oil and dirt that may have accumulated in the pores. Then, a special applicator tip is used to suction all of the impurities, oil, and dirt from the skin while simultaneously delivering an infusion of plumping, hydrating, and nourishing serums.
Benefits Of HydraFacial Treatment
A HydraFacial is simply pampering. Our clients enjoy the time that they get to lie comfortably and allow their skin to receive some TLC. In addition to just feeling relaxing and indulgent, the HydraFacial is also convenient. Most people don’t have hours to spend at the med spa. A HydraFacial takes less than an hour. After treatment, the skin is plumper, brighter, smoother, and more hydrated. There is no downtime needed to wait out side effects, either. Some people develop a little redness, but this fades quickly and does not impede normal activities. Providers do advise clients to wait until the following day to apply makeup and other products to the skin. This allows for maximum absorption of customized serums.
HydraFacials are medical grade resurfacing treatments that are appropriate for nearly everyone. Some clients schedule periodic HydraFacials to reduce their acne flare-ups and help reduce inflammation and scarring. Some like the way that the HydraFacial reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Because each HydraFacial is designed around the client, this procedure is widely effective across the board.
