What is HydraFacial and How Does it Work?

The HydraFacial is a patented skin treatment available in medical spas and dermatology offices. It is a three-step process that deep-cleans, exfoliates, and hydrates the skin. The procedure involves using a mechanized wand that cleanses and exfoliates the skin while delivering hydrating serums customized to your skin type. This combination of exfoliation and hydration helps improve overall skin texture, tone, and appearance.

A Starlight Glow Master trained and certified by Hydrafacial's brand will perform the facial. The procedure has three components:

  1. Your Starlight Glow Master will use a vortex-like wand against your skin to clear dirt and oil from the depths of your pores. They may also use a peel to exfoliate and resurface your skin.

  2. Your Starlight Glow Master will use a vacuum-like attachment on the wand to extract debris from deep within your pores.

  3. Your Starlight Glow Master will use a pen-like attachment to apply a serum specially formulated for your skin type and concerns.

  4. At Starlight, you can book a Platinum Hydrafacial, which includes a skin booster and eye or lip treatment.

HydraFacial Benefits

The Hydrafacial is known for its deep-cleaning abilities that address several skin concerns, including acne, dryness, wrinkles, and congested pores. A 6-in-1 treatment that vortex cleanses, peels, extracts, boosts, and infuses the skin with serums based on your skin type, Hydrafacial's propriety deep exfoliation removes pore-clogging debris for a signature Starlight glow every time.

The Hydrafacial is famous for bringing intense hydration, suppleness, and radiance to the skin. After the Hydrafacial, you will see the infamous "gunkie tube," where all of the dead cells, blackheads, and buildup the facial removes can be seen floating around in the treatment fluids. Clients love to see everything we pull from their skin, and you'll be amazed at what we extract during the Hydrafacial!

Hydrafacials for Acne

Hydrafacials can remove pore-clogging debris, excess oil, and dead skin cells trapped in the skin that cause acne, making them particularly beneficial for those with acne-prone skin. As part of a Hydrafacial, various tips and nourishing serums will promote hydration and balance the skin's oil production. A more gentle treatment than microdermabrasion, Hydrafacials reduce inflammation, unclog pores, and provide essential nutrients to improve the appearance of acne and prevent future breakouts.

HydraFacial for Anti-Aging 

Improve the texture of your skin while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with a Hydrafacial. Designed to minimize pigmentation and stimulate collagen production, a Hydrafacial will help your skin maintain its elasticity and firmness.

Are Hydrafacials Safe During Pregnancy?

We can customize a Starlight Hydrafacial for those pregnant or breastfeeding. For those expecting, we may modify certain steps and select specific serums or exfoliants to ensure utmost care. While considered a gentle and non-invasive treatment, always consult your doctor before proceeding with any treatments during pregnancy.

Hydrafacial Downtime

One of the alluring benefits of a Hydrafacial is there is no downtime! For the best results, we recommend scheduling a Hydrafacial one to two days before a big event, like a wedding. Doing so will give your skin time to soak in all the nutrients and leave you with the signature Starlight Glow for your big day.

The HydraFacial is a highly effective and versatile skin treatment that offers deep cleansing, exfoliation, and hydration in one session. With its ability to address various skin concerns and minimal side effects, it has gained popularity as a go-to treatment for beauty enthusiasts and celebrities alike.
