What is a HydraFacial?
A HydraFacial is a patented skin treatment that combines microdermabrasion exfoliation of the skin along with rejuvenating hydrating serums to cleanse and moisturize the face.
There are three steps to a HydraFacial:
- Deep cleansing
Step 1: Deep Cleansing
A professionally trained HydraFacial aesthetician uses a gentle process to open the pores while a mechanical wand with small rotating heads vacuums away impurities. This is a pain-free and relaxing experience that feels like a cool scrubbing sensation on the skin.
Step 2: Exfoliation
Unlike a chemical peel, a gentle exfoliation process removes dead skin cells without the redness and scaling. Using the same wand technology, the cosmetic aesthetician will remove the deep pore-level impurities with a patented mixture of glycolic and salicylic acids. Unlike a microdermabrasion treatment which uses manual extractions, the vacuum tip of the HydraFacial tool removes impurities without pain. This gentle process also offers the same benefits of a chemical peel without the down time.
Step 3: Hydration
Now that you have deeply cleaned, fresh skin, the technician will replenish and nourish your skin with hydrating products. Because the dead skin has been removed and the pores cleaned, your skin will be able to absorb the hydration more effectively. The result is a much softer and smoother-looking face.
You will leave the HydraFacial treatment with the glow of fully clean, hydrated skin without the swelling or redness that can come from other cosmetic cleansing treatments.
