How does HydraFacial work?

First, you should understand that a HydraFacial is not just a technique anyone can perform. Instead, it is a specific machine that requires appropriate training to learn how to operate.

It's not a completely alien or new procedure. People who have had similar treatments, such as a microabrasion, may see quite a few similarities between a HydraFacial and their past experiences.

In a HydraFacial, an aesthetician will use the HydraFacial device for multiple purposes, including cleaning, exfoliation, and extraction. This process creates a healthier glow on your skin. It is also known for helping to diminish wrinkles and improve the overall tightness of your skin, thus dramatically enhancing its appearance. There's no question that a HydraFacial can work for any skin type or individuals of any age.

What happens during a HydraFacial?

There are four steps during the HydraFacial procedure:

  • Your face will be cleansed and exfoliated using a hydra peel tip and HydraFacial wand. The fully-trained technician will know what to look for, how to use the wand, and what to clean. The process will remove dead skin and begin to address any blemishes on your skin.
  • The technician will change the wand's tip and apply a chemical peel to your skin. Doing so will loosen and remove any debris that is in your pores.
  • A vacuum suction will be applied to the HydraFacial wand, removing blackheads and debris.
  • The technician will apply a hydrating serum to your skin. This serum will remove toxins, moisturize your skin, and give it a healthy glow.

The entire process typically takes no more than 30 minutes.

Areas Treated by HydraFacial?

A HydraFacial is typically meant for areas of the skin visible to the public. As such, your face and neck are the most commonly treated areas. However, there is nothing to stop you from getting a HydraFacial in other places, particularly given that the benefits of a HydraFacial can be seen anywhere.

What To Do After a HydraFacial

Thankfully, "recovery" is practically nothing. All you have to do is avoid strenuous exercise or anything that will make you sweat extensively. You should also avoid putting makeup on the affected area for 24 hours. Some people may notice that their skin is a bit red or irritated for a brief period after the procedure, but this almost always goes away on its own.
