What is Hydrafacial?
HydraFacial is a "medical-grade hydradermabrasion device that carries out a patented three-part regimen — cleansing, exfoliating, and then infusing skin with intensive serums.
Rather than blasting the skin with grit, à la traditional dermabrasion, this gentler approach vacuums out pores while simultaneously pushing in potent actives, which moisturize, brighten, plump, and protect. The machine's handpiece holds patented spiralized treatment tips equipped with "vortex technology" — the whirling force that both giveth and taketh away. Beyond the standard three steps, there are add ons and boosters, which take aim at unique skin concerns, like brown spots, acne scarring and fine lines.
Whether you get Hydra-ed at a swanky plastic surgeon's office or a suburban strip-mall medspa, you're guaranteed "a high-tech facial that delivers consistent results, because it's not as technician-dependent [as other kinds of facials,] so you can count on it time and time again.
Is there down time?
How many times have you told a facialist to skip the extractions for fear of redness or next-day eruptions (or simply because they hurt? HydraFacial has a strict no-torture policy. At MD spa Hyrdrafacial is quickly becoming one of our most popular procedures, not only because it combines elements of workhorse treatments, like microdermabrasion and chemical peels, but also because it truly is a relaxing, feel-good experience. By combining vortex pressure with a clog-purging solution of salicylic acid, willow bark extract, and anti-inflammatory Tasmanian pepper, the device suctions gunk from pores — no squeezing or pressing required — and, at the end, you can actually see all that was removed, which people seem to like.
Who is it good for?
This procedure is great for anyone. Teenagers with acne; adults with pimples, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation, men with thick congested skin and for older patients with sun damage and even flaky pre-cancerous spots. While it wins definite points for inclusivity, there are some who should abstain. Those with active rashes, sunburns, some rosacea cases, along with pregnant patients, as some of the ingredients used during the HydraFacial, such as salicylic acid, haven't been tested and proven safe during pregnancy.
How long does it take?
The signature hydrafacial only takes about 30 minutes and is great for a little pick me up. Clients looking for a more aggressive, result driven treatment, can work their way up to the platinum hydrafacial. For this, we would allow for about 60 minutes. You and your service provider would be able to discuss which treatment option is best suited for your concerns, in your complimentary consultation. The beauty about Hydrafacial is that ALL treatments are customizable. Incorporating boosters and perk add ons you are able to target your specific concerns.
