Thinking of a HydraFacial? Here is Everything You Need to Know
Are you bothered by the appearance of your skin and are looking to make a change with a non invasive solution? Perhaps you are seeking a more even skin tone or skin texture, are dealing with oily skin, enlarged pores, sun damage or brown spots, or more. If this is the case, the HydraFacial may be for you!
There are plenty of reasons to consider a HydraFacial as a special treatment before a big event or even as a regular part of your skincare regimen. Here’s what to know about the HydraFacial and how it can transform your skin for a brighter, healthier look.
1. What is a HydraFacial?
The HydraFacial a medical-grade skin treatment that offers deep cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, and hydration for all skin types and tones. The result is radiant, healthy-looking skin. Our team can customize the HydraFacial to address your specific skin concerns. It only takes about 30 minutes, and no downtime is required afterward. You can immediately resume your normal activities afterward with instantly noticeable results.
2. How Does It Work?
The HydraFacial device uses a patented technology called the Vortex-Fusion delivery system to cleanse, exfoliate, and hydrate the skin all at the same time. The handpiece delivers a stream of cleansing solution to the face while the exfoliating tip helps remove dead skin cells and congestion from the pores. The hydrating solution is then applied to the skin, which helps lock in moisture, giving the skin a plumper, more youthful appearance and brightening the complexion. Special booster serums filled with active ingredients can then be applied to the face to address your unique skin concerns. Finally, a specialized mask is applied to help soothe and protect the skin, further improving the appearance of the skin.
3. What Are the Benefits?
HydraFacials offer several benefits for both the face and body. The deep cleansing action helps to unclog pores and prevent breakouts, while the exfoliation brightens the skin complexion and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. And intense moisturizers help to improve dry skin and elasticity and gives the skin a dewy, radiant glow. In short, the HydraFacial is a great way to “reset” your skin and improve a variety of skin concerns.
4. Who is a Candidate?
Anyone who wishes to improve overall skin health, combat skin aging, and achieve a radiant skin tone can benefit from the HydraFacial treatment. This treatment is even great for sensitive skin. However, it is important to note that you should not receive a HydraFacial treatment if you have active rashes, open wounds in the treatment area, certain skin conditions, a history of severe allergies, or are pregnant or breastfeeding. If you are interested in learning if you are a good candidate, please contact us today to schedule a consultation.
5. Are There Any Side Effects?
While HydraFacials are relatively gentle, proven safe, and do not typically cause any major side effects, some people experience slight redness or irritation after their HydraFacial session. That is usually temporary and will resolve independently within a few hours. Those with extremely sensitive skin may notice more prominent redness than others. More serious side effects such as bruising, swelling, or infection can occur in rare cases. Most people can feel free to wear makeup one day after treatment. Your skincare specialist can ensure that your HydraFacial is tailored to your exact skin type and preferences.
6. How Often Should I Get a HydraFacial?
The answer to how many treatments you need depends on your skin type and concerns. For example, if you want to improve your skin’s overall appearance, we recommend getting a HydraFacial every 4 to 6 weeks to remove dead skin cells. If you have special concerns like acne, fine lines, and wrinkles, we may recommend getting a HydraFacial more frequently, such as every 2 to 4 weeks. Ultimately, your skincare specialist will work with you to create a treatment plan that meets your individual needs.
7. How Much Does a HydraFacial Cost?
The cost of a HydraFacial can vary depending on the practice and the location. You can, however, expect to pay around $175 for a single session. If you opt for a package, the price will be lower per session. For example, a package of three may cost anywhere between $500-$720. You can also purchase HydraFacial packages that include additional treatments, such as dermaplaning or microneedling. The price of these packages will be higher, but they offer a more comprehensive experience.
