Hydrafacial or Regular Facial?
Everyone wants healthy and youthful-looking skin. Investing a fortune on oils, creams, essences, and serums in a multi step skin-care routine can help you, but you may be more proactive in achieving a natural glow with a medical facial.
You may have heard about HydraFacial, a treatment that is currently in trend for helping pursue and maintain long-term skin health, and also, HydraFacial is loved by many celebrities such as: Beyonce, Kate Winslet, Britney Spears and Denise Van Outen and Jlo.
You may have heard about the Jlo HydraFacial, and the reason is that she actually launched the jlo beauty booster HydraFacial treatment that you can find in your favorite Medical SPA, this Jlo booster includes a quadruple-active formula of olive leaf extract, niacinamide, a fermented adaptogen blend and a proprietary Hydra Complex, it is amazing to boost your skin appearance.
This is a multistep facial treatment that uses a HydraFacial device to cleanse, exfoliate, extract, and deliver a variety of rejuvenating serums. It’s become an in-demand service because in only one session it provides an instant bright skin.
How is Hydrafacial different from regular facials?
There are Facials, and Then There’s Hydrafacial. Our non-invasive treatment improves skin health, addresses individual concerns, and creates a glow like no other. Unlike traditional facials, it’s performed via device rather than by hand, for deeper penetration and longer lasting results.
The magic of a Hydrafacial is in the wand, which works like a vacuum to open pores for a deep cleanse and easy extraction of impurities and dead skin cells. It also allows the active ingredients in our boosters to penetrate deeper, for the most effective treatment possible.
How Does a HydraFacial Work Exactly?
The HydraFacial device uses an exfoliating tip paired with suction to remove dead skin cells from the surface of your face. After skin is exfoliated, serums are infused into the skin. That last step is the key reason proponents say it’s so effective.
There is no downtime and the entire treatment can be done in as little as 30 minutes. There are three steps in the HydraFacial treatment:
- Deeply cleanse and soften skin to help loosen dead skin cells and prep for extractions. This is the resurfacing step, when skin is exfoliated. Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells from the outer layer of the skin. This is all done in the HydraFacial with the HydraFacial tip.
- Remove congestion from pores with painless suction. The tip gets gunk out of pores and delivers topical moisturizers simultaneously.
- Saturate the skin’s surface with intense moisturizers and nourishing peptides. Your treatment will finish with “boosters,” or serums. These are geared toward your skin goal, which may include reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, dull skin, or enlarged pores. The treatment is entirely customizable through these “boost” serums, which is a major perk for patients.
Is HydraFacial worth it?
The Hydrafacial machine delivers active ingredients into the skin. Depending on the specific active ingredients used in the HydraFacial, the treatment can improve hydration, radiance, and even skin texture and pore size.
So, Most of the hydrafacial benefits come from the chosen boosters. That’s why you’ll work with your Skincare Specialist to choose the right ones for you based on your specific concerns.
What are the risks involved in hydrafacial?
The HydraFacial is appropriate for all skin types. However, you should know that if you have an active rash, sunburn, or moderate to severe acne or rosacea, you should avoid a HydraFacial.
On the other hand, some of the ingredients used during the HydraFacial, such as salicylic acid, haven’t been tested and proven safe during pregnancy, even though there is controversy about that fact, we think that you should ask your obstetrician or dermatologist before getting a HydraFacial while pregnant.
Another thing to take into consideration is that you may have to make some changes in your normal skin-care routine before your appointment. We recommend you stop using prescription creams for a few days before the treatment to avoid irritation. But the best way to explain pre/post care steps is by seeing you in an initial consultation, so that way we avoid some risks about what you can do or not before deciding if hydrafacial is the best option for you.
It’s also very important to choose the clinic where you will receive the HydraFacial, remember that the person that performs the treatment has to be a Skincare Specialist to determine your needs and select the best boosters for your skin.
You can see results in only one session
As different from many facials that come with downtime: redness, sensitivity and temporary results, the HydraFacial results are instant, you can get it before important events as it requires no downtime, and you can also get it for the wellness of your skin.
We recommend having a monthly professional treatment to deeply cleanse, extract and hydrate your skin, while following a great skincare routine will definitely do wonders on your skin.
