It is a non-invasive medical procedure which uses a water-based solution applied to the skin using a technology to break the upper layer of dead cells. It combines cleaning and extraction of impurities, exfoliation and infiltration of vitamins, while infusing the skin with serums rich in moisturizing ingredients. In one session, aestheticians can use the hydrafacial [device] to cleanse, exfoliate, extract, and deliver a variety of rejuvenating serums into the skin.
There are three steps involved in a hydrafacial:
- Cleanse and peel
This is all done with the tip of the hydrafacial device. It gently dislodges impurities and dead skin cells
- Extract and hydrate
The tip gets gunk out of pores and delivers topical moisturizers simultaneously.
- Infuse and protect
Your treatment will finish with “boosters,” or serums. These are geared toward your skin goal, which may include reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, dull skin, or enlarged pores. The treatment is entirely customizable through these “boost” serums, which is a major perk for patients.
Who Should Not Have A Hydrafacial?
Avoid a hydrafacial if you have an active rash, sunburn, or moderate to severe acne or rosacea. Pregnant women should also skip it, due to the the ingredients used during the hydrafacial, such as salicylic acid, which has not been proven safe during pregnancy.
