Every now and then, we hear about new treatments that are mostly unheard of. However, the advent of Hydrafacial, and the science behind it has convinced people enough that globally, this facial is being done every 15 seconds. This amounts to more than 2 million treatments in the world, last year alone. So what exactly does this facial entail? Read on to find out if you would like your aesthetician or dermatologists to do it as well.

What is Hydrafacial?

Hydrafacial is a type of ‘medical grade hyper-dermabrasion’ using a device that focuses on cleansing the skin, exfoliating the skin and hydrating and nourishing it with intensive serums that sink deeper into the skin than conventional products.

Why is it preferable to traditional dermabrasion?

Traditional dermabrasion methods use grittier ingredients to remove the dead skin cells and debris from the skin. On the other hand, Hydrafacial is gentler on the skin as it does not use the grittier products but vacuums out pores for a deeper clean. Moreover, it pushes in potent activators and rich serums that work to brighten, moisturize and protect the skin.

The machine used by dermatologists for this facial has a specialized spiral and ‘vortex technology’ that whirls to gently remove the skin cells without abrading. Furthermore, it targets specific skin concerns such as brown spots, sun damage, textured skin and fine lines. It does so by using boosters and serums that amplify the benefits of this treatment.

It is a targeted treatment:

Unlike traditional facials, Hydrafacial is a more tailored treatment in that it incorporates key products that should be used in between sessions to enhance the benefits. Users, therefore, benefit greatly with such scripted facials that add a bespoke feel to the entire process.

Clinical trials, held by top dermatologists at renowned institutes have verified the claims of these facials. Infact, they have seen an improvement in hydration and radiance, in addition to texture and firmness in the skin of subjects undergoing these facials. This proves that the protocols followed by these facials have the potential to reduce fine lines, wrinkles and oil production.

It is beneficial for multiple age groups:

An associate professor of dermatology and genetics at Mount Sinai Hospital, NY, Ellen Marmur declares Hydrafacial as a beneficial treatment for all age groups—be they teenagers with acne, adults with hyperpigmentation or older patient with sunspots. Such treatment options boost the confidence of the user without being greatly heavy on the pocket and being safe for everyone across the board.

However, certain people should abstain from getting this facial—such as those who are pregnant, those with rosacea and sunburn or active rashes.

No downtime:

Another great feature of this facial is that it comes with no downtime. In addition to that, it shows almost instant results with great improvement in texture and fine lines. While certain issues can take multiple sessions, more often the client sees the result in the thirty minutes it takes to perform the facial. The added glow it brings makes it a highly requested facial before weddings and important events.
