7 Reasons To Love Hydrafacial
In the quest for youthful, glowing skin you may come across an endless array of skin treatment options. There are deep-cleansing facials that remove clogged pores and gunk. Anti-aging facials target fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation. Then you have specialized treatments that promise to resolve conditions such as acne, scars or texture.
If you’re new to the world of beauty, it may be difficult to choose just one type of facial. But what if we told you that you don’t have to choose? How great would it be if there was one remarkable facial experience that could achieve and maintain the health of your skin in the short and long-term? There is and it’s the HydraFacial.
What is the HydraFacial?
Imagine relaxing comfortably while a jet of water swirls gently, and with purpose, across your face. You’d feel a light suction sensation as the pressurized water exfoliates deep-cleanses your pores all the while delivering deep hydration and customized serums to rejuvenate your skin.
Sounds too-good-to-be-true? No, it’s real and it’s the latest science-meets-beauty procedure. In fact, the HydraFacial has become the most popular facial for a reason. Just as the name implies, it’s a modern twist on microdermabrasion - hydra-dermabrasion. Instead of crystals this revolutionary treatment uses water to resurface your skin and beautify your complexion.

How is the HydraFacial Different Than a Chemical Peel?
The main purpose of a chemical peel is to remove the top layer of the epidermis. Peels use a combination of acids such as glycolic, AHA, lactic and TCA to achieve exfoliation. Depending on the strength of the peel, there can be a downtime of 1-7 days, with deeper peels having a longer downtime and recovery that includes considerable redness and peeling.
The HydraFacial has virtually no downtime and is designed to deep-cleanse, hydrate and protect the skin. Although there is gentle exfoliation involved using patented serums, you’ll be able to return to work, or even go out in the evening, without the fear of red or irritated skin.
The HydraFacial is also performed using a patented piece of equipment that methodically suctions away debris from the pores while delivering soothing hydration and skin nutrients.
When Should I Have the HydraFacial?
If you’re experiencing clogged pores or mild acne breakout, the HydraFacial can resolve mild-to-moderate skin congestion and reveal a squeaky-clean complexion.
Get relief for combination (oily T-zone/dry cheeks) skin. The HydraFacial patented handpiece and serums target congestion that causes oiliness and hydrates dry areas simultaneously.
Great for anti-aging and improving circulation. With long-term use, the HydraFacial can soften fine lines, stimulate collagen, plump up the skin and give your complexion a beautiful glow.
One-two days before a special event such as a wedding or party. Giving your skin a thorough exfoliation will help it look brighter and more hydrated. Additionally, if you plan to wear make-up, it will go on more smoothly and stay looking fresh longer.
Before or after vacation. Look great during your sunny get-away with clean pores and smooth skin. Book another one after you return to remove sunblock, makeup and other impurities from the pores.
How Often Should I Have a HydraFacial?
The frequency of HydraFacial treatments depends on your individual skin concerns. If your skin is in good shape, and your goal is to maintain a healthy glow and appearance, we recommend having a facial every 4-5 weeks. It can be combined with other modalities such as peels, laser or dermal fillers to help prevent aging and keep your skin looking its best.
If you’re experiencing a specific condition, however, such as chronic clogged pores, acne breakouts, or dull, prematurely aged skin, then look at booking every four weeks until your condition improves. After that you can begin a maintenance schedule of every 6-8 weeks.
Who Should Not Have a HydraFacial?
There are very few instances when a HydraFacial is not recommended. The most notable is when you’re experiencing a severe cystic acne breakout. In this case you should seek the care of a medical professional to get your cystic acne under control. Also, certain types of autoimmune conditions like eczema or psoriasis could be contraindicated with the HydraFacial.
The best way to know if you’re a good candidate for this, or any other treatment, is to have a consultation with one of our professional skin therapists. They will advise you which treatment is best to address your skin condition and concerns.
