Hydrafacial: All the Basics You Need To Know

Updated: Jun 23, 2023

Hydrafacial uses the power of vacuum and steam to cleanse your skin’s clogged pores. It differs slightly from your traditional facials as it addresses several skin problems while being gentle.

The process of hydrafacial uses a machine to extract oils, bacteria, dirt, and other impurities from the skin’s surface, leaving you with smoother, healthier, and cleaner skin.

What is Hydrafacial?

Hydrafacial treatment uses specialized fluids and skin-enhancing cocktails to remove dead skin cells, debris, and dirt from your face. Its vortex action cleanses and soothes the targeted area simultaneously to improve elasticity to achieve healthy-looking, youthful skin. Thus, it is ideal for your skin if you wish to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while giving it a refreshed look. It helps you treat skin issues like wrinkles, breakouts, and large pores and boosts collagen building.

Additionally, LED light therapy and blue light help cure acne, while red light helps reduce the early signs of aging around the eyes. Remember that hydra facial cleansing and exfoliation are known to strengthen the fragile zones of your body.

How Does a Hydrafacial Work on Your Skin?

Generally, hydrafacial is used to treat aging signs. These are immensely beneficial in treating hydration issues like dryness and flakiness, acne scars, and dull-looking skin.

Cleanse and Peel

During the process of hydrafacial, the first step involves cleansing and exfoliating the skin. Your skin specialist will use a vortex cleansing and hydra peel tip to cleanse the skin with their wand gently. This will open your pores to help eliminate clogged sebum production between treatments.

Some people liken the overall process of a hydrafacial to getting an electric toothbrush pressed against their face, which sounds pretty relaxing.

Extract and Hydrate

This is an essential part of the hydrafacial process, as hydration comes into play in this step. The main role of a hydrafacial treatment is to make your skin look naturally refreshed and smooth.

Extracting all the unwanted impurities and hydrating the skin helps you achieve a smooth complexion and hydrated, healthy-looking skin.

Fuse and Protect

The hydrafacial skin treatment concludes with serums and boosters. These are generally personalized based on your skin’s needs. For instance, if you wish to reduce the signs of hyperpigmentation and other issues like fine lines, wrinkles, large pores, acne scarring, or dullness, your hydrafacial treatment will include specialized boosters and serums that are designed to achieve your particular goals.
