Today, there are different ways to achieve a clearer, smoother, and more beautiful skin. However, many people are not willing to go through the discomfort and downtime associated with deep skin treatments. Thankfully, HydraFacials are now available to eliminate these aspects of most treatments. So, what is a hydrafacial?
A HydraFacial is a medical-grade resurfacing treatment that clears out skin pores and hydrates the skin. It uses patented technology for clearing dead skin cells, loosening pores, and preparing them for extraction using a combination of glycolic acid, botanical extracts, and salicylic acid. It uses a vacuum-powered extraction method to eliminate gunk from the skin in a painless procedure.

Benefits of Hydrafacial
A lot of patients across the globe love HydraFacials because of the following benefits it offers:
- It requires no downtime. A HydraFacial can provide a patient with a clearer, more radiant skin in just about thirty minutes, with little to zero irritation; thus, no downtime. It does not require special preparation and patients can return to their normal activities right after treatment. This makes it highly requested before red-carpet events and weddings.
- It works on sensitive skin. The treatment does not cause excessive redness as it does not use pore-softening steam. Therefore, it can even work for patients with sensitive skin. And because it uses vacuum-powered extraction, those with sensitive skin don’t have to worry about inflammation after deep skin cleaning.
- It is painless. Hydrafacials involves the insertion of a liquid with each swipe of the treatment wand. Thus, patients don’t feel scraping or skin pulling. It does not involve needling, abrasion, or pinching. It is quite gentle without causing unpleasant reactions.
Who Should Get the Treatment?
Hydrafacial is suitable for any age and skin type. It is nice for teens with acne, adults, with pimples, skin discoloration, and wrinkles, as well as for older patients who have sun damage and even flay-precancerous spots. However, it is not ideal for pregnant individuals and those who have active sunburns, rashes, or rosacea.
How Often Should a Patient Get the Treatment?
While the skin smoother after a Hydrafacial, it is not a quick fix. It is meant to improve the look of the skin over time. Because of this, its effects last longer than other facials. However, to get maximum results, it is ideal to get the treatment every 4-6 weeks. Moreover, while a HydraFacial can be obtained alongside other non-invasive procedures such as microblading or Botox, patients must consider the side effects and downtime of these treatments before getting the facial.
