This 30 to 60-minute treatment tackles everything from discolouration to ageing to acne and uneven skin texture. A Hydrafacial is designed to rejuvenate and hydrate the skin, for a healthier appearance.
In this blog, we’re looking at exactly what a Hydrafacial is and the skin conditions it can treat so you’ll know if a Hydrafacial is right for you.
What is a Hydrafacial?
A Hydrafacial is a type of advanced facial treatment which uses patented vortex technology to carry out a deep cleanse of your skin. The treatment rejuvenates your skin by administering botanical ingredients and antioxidants which help remove dead skin cells and toxins. As a Hydrafacial is an extremely fast-acting treatment, you’ll see instant results that not only look great but feel great too.
What are the active ingredients used in a Hydrafacial?
Hydrafacial utilises vortex technology to deliver botanical ingredients which contain nutrients such as:
- Hyaluronic acid
- Horse chestnut seed extract
- Red algae extract
- Magnesium peptides
How Do Hydrafacials Work: The 6 Steps
The Hydrafacial treatment is defined by six different steps. These include:
Step 1 – Detox
A specially formulated lymphatic drainage technique helps increase circulation, eliminating toxins.
Step 2 – Cleansing & Exfoliation
Dead skin cells and impurities are gently lifted for a deep-cleansing result.
Step 3 – Brightening Agent
A gentle glycolic and salicylic solution helps loosen debris from your pores.
Step 4 – Extraction
Blackheads and impurities are extracted using honey extract and salicylic acid.
Step 5 – Hydration
A combination of hyaluronic acid, antioxidants and peptides replenish, plump and hydrate your skin.
Step 6 – Rejuvenation
LED light is used to stimulate collagen and reduce redness, for glowing skin.
A Hydrafacial will leave your skin instantly feeling nourished and rejuvenated, as the treatment reveals glowing, refreshed and radiant skin with immediate results.
What Skin Conditions Can A Hydrafacial Treat?
Hydrafacial is a treatment that everyone can enjoy and is suitable for all skin types and concerns. Whether you’re simply looking to maintain healthy skin or are concerned about a skin condition such as acne, Hydrafacial could help.
There are many skin conditions a Hydrafacial can help treat, including:
Tired and dull skin can easily be revived and refreshed with this quick and effective skincare treatment.
Skin which is lacking moisture can become flaky and irritating. However, a Hydrafacial can deliver hyaluronic acid, peptides and antioxidants to the skin to re-hydrate it.
Acne can be one of the most common skin conditions. If you have mild acne, HydraFacial is a very effective treatment, however, your practitioner will advise you of the best treatment for your type of acne.
Pigmentation of the skin can be treated with Hydrafacials using the element of dermabrasion which can reduce the visibility of pigmentation.
Is There Any Before/Aftercare Required?
Before having your Hydrafacial treatment you should avoid unnecessary stress to the skin in the few days leading up to the appointment. This includes avoiding using acne medication, waxing and carrying out any exfoliating treatment.
After having a Hydrafacial treatment, there are a few things you should do to ensure you are able to enjoy the full benefits of the treatment and avoid damaging your skin. One of the most important is that you avoid hot environments, such as saunas and sun beds, for the first 24 hours.
After this, you should avoid any other intense treatments being applied to the same areas of skin in which you received your Hydrafacial. In addition to this, it’s important to wear at least factor 30 sun cream whilst exposed to the sun.
Are there any side effects of Hydrafacials?
The Hydrafacial treatment is designed to be non-invasive and pain-free, so you shouldn’t feel any discomfort as a result of the procedure. You will feel light pressure as the treatment is applied but it shouldn’t cause you any pain. If you currently have a facial rash, it’s best to avoid the Hydrafacial treatment as it could be aggravated.
How Can You Maintain the Benefits of a Hydrafacial?
The best way to make the most of your Hydrafacial is to have a good skincare routine and maintain a healthy lifestyle. This will help your skin stay healthy after your Hydrafacial treatment and ensure you get the most out of the treatment.
A few of the key steps you can take to help your skin remain healthy is stay Hydrated, eat a well-balanced diet and make sure you get a good night’s sleep each night. It’s also important to avoid smoking, alcohol and using sunbeds.
How long will the benefits of a Hydrafacial last?
It’s common for the benefits of a Hydrafacial to last up to four weeks, so long you carry out the necessary aftercare. Whilst you can have multiple treatments to ensure that the results are as long-lasting as possible, patients should be able to see the benefits of a Hydrafacial immediately, with smooth skin lasting for at least a week after.
