What is Hydyafacial?
Hydrafacial is a medical grade hydradermabrasion facial that helps in exfoliating, deep cleaning, and then infusing your skin with serums. It is a highly customizable treatment and more effective than any cosmetic facials that you can get.
Results you can expect:
- Decreased pore size
- Less hyperpigmentation
- Decreased fine lines
- Reduced acne
STEP 1: Cleansing
The technician will thoroughly cleanse your face. This will remove any makeup or dust that you might have on the top of your skin.
STEP 2: Ultrasonic Scrub
Your face will be gently scrubbed with an Ultrasonic scrub. This device used vibrations to remove dead cells from your skin. It opens up your pores for further treatment.
STEP 3: Hydradermabrasion
This is the most important step of the procedure. After your pores have been opened, gentle suction is applied to skin to remove all the debris. Depending on the needs of your skin, the intensity of suction can be increased or decreased. This helps removes any black or white heads from the surface of your skin.
This process is completely painless. It is also much gentler than Microdermabrasion.
Step 4: RF Therapy
RF stands for radio frequency. RF therapy uses low energy radiation that heats up the lower layers of your skin called the dermis. This heats helps in increasing collagen production. Collagen is a protein in the skin which improves skin elasticity, giving it a plumper, younger look.
This step helps in reducing signs of aging like wrinkles and fine lines.
Step 5: Ultrasonic Therapy
In this step, a handheld ultrasonic device is moved on your face in tight circles, in the upward direction. This helps improve blood flow and gently lift the face.
Step 6: Serum Infusion
This step is completely customizable as per your needs. You can get an infusion of hyaluronic acid, glutathione, salicylic acid or a combination of them.
Step 7: Cold Therapy
The therapist will run a cold wand along your face in order to lock in the effects of the treatments and serum applied. This helps close your pores. This soothing last step helps relieve the skin after the deep cleanse.
Hydrafacial Steps you can add to your basic treatment:
- BB Glow: This permanent foundation treatment is more effective after a hydrafacial procedure as it allows the pigment to settle in better into your skin. Read more about BB Glow
- LED Light Therapy: This is for targeted results depending on your skin type. Red light helps increase collagen and calm the skin, while blue light helps with acne treatment
- You can combine this with treatments like a face massage and post treatment mask for a relaxing experience. The masks help seal in the treatment and massage helps stimulate blood flow.
How long does Hydrafacial Last?
The effects of hydrafacial last for about a month. It can be elongated if you follow a good skincare routine. It is important to wear sunscreen everyday in order to maintain results. With regular treatments, you will find noticeable improvement in the quality of your skin.
The best part about Hydrafacial is that it has no down time or side effects. You can walk out of your appointment and resume normal activity. You might be advised to not go out in the sun for a few days incase you get any add-on treatments like chemical peels.
