Medical spa treatments have gone a long way in beautifying the skin, helping reduce fine lines and wrinkles. One latest non-invasive facial on the market is HydraFacial, which claims to be the most effective type of facial anyone can get. It combines 3 treatments into 1, which means it is microdermabrasion, facial, and chemical peel all in one.
How Does Hydrafacial Work?
A Hydrafacial utilizes a special facial machine to perform a hydradermabrasion into the skin, followed by the extractions using a suction wand tool and infuse of antioxidant + hydrating serums. In addition, hydradermabrasion is specific to a Hydrafacial when the aesthetician utilizes a wand tool with an exfoliating tip, which also delivers exfoliating AHA/BHA acids to the skin. This way helps remove dead skin cells from the surface, loosening debris in the pores and softening skin.
Specifically, the first step is to cleanse the skin’s surface, soften blackheads and other congestion, and pull congestion from the pores. Next, the skin will be cleansed with a balancing wash before applying an activated charcoal mask, which will draw pore impurities without stripping away healthy oils. Followed by steaming of skin for a couple of minutes while having the mask helps soften any debris.
Once the mask is removed and balanced with toner, the aesthetician will use gloves and cotton pads to extract blackheads and small whiteheads, utilizing a method that does not damage the skin. After this step, pores are clean and ready for exfoliation. Using this method, the aesthetician will extract all congestion except for cystic acne, which needs to be treated differently using a healing light and bacteria-killing spot treatment.
Since HydraFacial’s multi-step treatment cleanses, exfoliates, and extracts dead cells, it then rejuvenates the skin with the help of serum infused with antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid.
Mainly, it is used to address the following concerns:
- Clogged pores
- Dark spots
- Enlarged pores
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Mild acne
- Oily skin
What Makes A HydraFacial Better Than A Regular Facial?
A lack of manual extraction makes this process gentler on the skin than most regular facials, with instant and long-lasting results that clients can see and feel. Improved hydration, minimized dark spots, and decreased fine lines are apparent benefits in HydraFacial.
It’s been known that the traditional facial can make clients feel uncomfortable during the method or minutes before the treatment. With a regular facial, extraction happens when the physician goes a bit to the deepest layer of the skin, cleansing the pore. Apparently, it is what people least enjoy the most, but any traditional facial is generally helpful for any long-term medication.
Like any other treatment, it may have the possibility of causing some effects like redness on the skin or some skin eruptions after the day of treatment. On the other hand, HydraFacial can make patients feel more comfortable. It’s like having a light massage on the face and does not involve a similar extraction process as traditional facials.
What Are The Benefits of HydraFacial?
As it becomes a results-driven facial treatment, HydraFacial combines all benefits of the latest technology and a next-level system that uses a unique delivery system. It works by removing all the makeup, dirt, and oil from the deepest layer of the skin. Below are the top benefits of HydraFacial, which includes:

While regular facials also provide amazingly immediate results, HydraFacial gives instantaneous results. With sufficient moisture deposited on the skin while in the process, there is no need to worry about the recovery time.

Unlike the regular facial that leaves the face reddish and a bit swollen, HydraFacial diminishes those side effects. Usually, redness and swelling are often associated with the dryness and dead skin cells removed on the skin. With the infused serum in HydraFacial, the mild complications should be less to worry about.
Gives No Acne Breakout
Since facials remove dead skin cells and impurities on the skin, sometimes it gives rash on the target area, possibly prone for acne breakouts. As the pores are left open, they may expose to different dirt and bacteria in the atmosphere. For this reason, open pores are more prone to whiteheads, blackheads, and even acne. In HydraFacial serum, it helps the skin become moisturized while protecting the pores from dirt deposits and debris.
Helps Reverse Agings Signs
The serums infused in the HydraFacial contribute to better glowing skin than regular facials. The serum used can stimulate better collagen production, which is responsible for keeping the skin tight and firm, hence, young-looking. HydraFacial helps stimulate collagen by removing excess dirt and dead skin cells, attaining the glowing, youthful complexion.
