HydraFacials can be performed on all skin types, including very sensitive skin. What is unique about this treatment is that it is highly customizable. Your skincare professional will work with you to understand your unique skin concerns, and will recommend a personalized treatment for you. It should be noted, however, that the HydraFacial is on the gentler side of the facial treatment spectrum. Clients requiring deeper resurfacing may achieve greater results from more intense treatments such as medical grade peels or laser treatments.
Even though HydraFacials are relatively gentle, there are certain skin concerns such as chronic rosacea and severe acne that preclude receiving any treatment. As always, it is best to consult with your skincare professional to discuss any conditions or allergies prior to booking a session. HydraFacials should also be avoided by individuals with a contact allergy to shellfish, as it is an ingredient found in one of the primary steps of the treatment.
WHAT WILL I EXPERIENCE DURING A HYDRAFACIAL?
The HydraFacial follows the same steps of a basic medical facial: cleansing and exfoliation, chemical peel, extractions, and infusion of serums. All four steps are administered through various attachments on the HydraFacial device. The suction and movement of the device boosts lymphatic drainage and improves circulation in the skin. These non-invasive treatments are painless and are generally offered in 30, 60, and 90 minute sessions, making them easy to work into any schedule.
After a HydraFacial treatment, you will notice immediate results. Skin will feel smoother, softer, and more hydrated as a result of the exfoliating acids and hydrating ingredients used. You may also notice a slight reduction in puffiness due to the lymphatic drainage. The use of nutrient-rich serums may also temporarily plump up fine lines and wrinkles, lessening their appearance.
