Thinking of a HydraFacial? Here is Everything You Need to Know
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. 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 Vortex-Fusion delivery system to cleanse, exfoliate, and hydrate the skin all at the same time. The handpiece delivers a stream of cleansing solution and exfoliating tips to the face, which 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. 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 the hydration helps to improve 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. Are There Any Side Effects?
While HydraFacials are relatively gentle and do not typically cause any major side effects, some people experience slight redness or irritation after the treatment. That is usually temporary and will resolve independently within a few hours. More serious side effects such as bruising, swelling, or infection can occur in rare cases. Your skincare specialist can ensure that your HydraFacial is tailored to your exact skin type and preferences.
5. How Often Should I Get a Hydrafacial?
The answer 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. 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.
6. 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.
