HydraFacial 101: What It Is and Why You Need One

HydraFacials are a popular type of facial treatment that provide deep cleansing, exfoliation, and hydration for glowing skin. The treatment is divided into four main steps:



Step 1: Cleanse & Exfoliate A cleansing serum is delivered to your skin while a spiral tip washes away dead skin cells. This will prep your skin for the following treatment steps.


Step 2: Gentle Peel A low percentage glycolic and salicylic acid solution then loosens impurities and debris that are lodged in the pores. Don’t worry, there is no post-treatment peeling.


Step 3: Vacuum Extractions Using vacuum suction, the HydraFacial device then ejects impurities and debris straight from the pore. No more pinching and poking at your face!


Step 4: Instant Hydration Now that your skin is clear, the HydraFacial delivers peptides and antioxidants for instant hydration. You may also add wrinkle repair or brightening to your treatment.


What Do HydraFacials Do?

HydraFacials deeply cleanse skin by removing buildup, sebum, and debris to unclog pores. The exfoliation process removes the top layer of dead skin cells to brighten and allow better penetration of skincare products. Makeup also applies smoother after a HydraFacial.


Differences From Microdermabrasion and Chemical Peels

While microdermabrasion relies on manual extractions, HydraFacials use a vacuum-like tip for deeper cleansing. Chemical peels use acids that may irritate some skin tones, but HydraFacials are safe for all skin tones.


Do HydraFacials Hurt?

Most people say HydraFacials feel like a light massage or cat licking your face during the exfoliation step. Some find it sandpapery but not painful. The suction and spinning tips may be noisy but shouldn’t hurt.


Safe for Most Skin Types

HydraFacials can treat most skin types, including sensitive complexions. However, avoid if you have active rashes, sunburns, rosacea, open wounds, or are pregnant.


Customizable Treatments

Your aesthetician can customize your HydraFacial by selecting specific serums tailored to your skin concerns like dehydration or acne.


How Many Treatments Are Needed?

Many see radiant results after one HydraFacial, with results lasting 5-7 days or longer. For best maintenance, treatments every 4-6 weeks are recommended, especially when combined with other treatments like chemical peels or lasers.


Overall, HydraFacials provide a deep yet gentle cleanse and hydrating boost, leaving you with an instantly brighter, smoother complexion. Consult a professional to see if this customizable treatment is right for your skin type and goals.
