How The HydraFacial Can Give You the Best Skin Of Your Life

There are so many of us who are looking for the perfect skincare treatment that will take years off your face and give you that hydrated, healthy glow that we once had in our youth. However, even with all of the different products and potions out there, getting these types of results can be a challenge, and often seem unattainable.

That is, until the beauty industry discovered a treatment known as the HydraFacial.

Whether you’ve heard about it from a friend, your esthetician, or even your favorite celebrity, the HydraFacial has become one of the most popular skincare treatments in recent years and one that everyone seems to be raving about.

But why are these HydraFacials so popular?

Well, in simple terms, it is because they work. But as HydraFacials grow in popularity, we know that many people start to have questions about this treatment and about the reputation that proceeds it. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about the HydraFacial and what it can do, so you can determine if this treatment is the right treatment for you.

What is the HydraFacial? 

The HydraFacial is a specialty skin treatment that is performed using a state-of-the-art machine. It is gentle and non-invasive but still delivers outstanding results, and more skin benefits than your standard spa facial. 

This patented device will help cleanse, extract and exfoliate the skin while delivering amazing hydration to the face that leaves it looking healthy, youthful and glowing. The HydraFacial works on all skin types and requires no down time. You can get right back to your activities right after your facial and your skin will instantly look beautiful and dewy!

What Skin Types is HydraFacial Best For?

One of the many reasons the HydraFacial is so universally loved is because it works on virtually any skin type. The HydraFacial is even safe for the most sensitive of skins. Plus, we can choose specific treatment serums or “boosters” with the HydraFacial to make sure that it works for your unique skin type.

What Happens During a HydraFacial?

When you come in for a HydraFacial, the first thing you will notice is the brand’s patented device, which looks like a rolling computer with lots of hoses coming out of it. This is the machine that will help you get that glowing skin. 

During the process, your aesthetician will use different wands to deliver different steps of the treatment. The average treatment takes as little as 30 minutes. Here’s how the process works: 

Step One: Cleansing and Exfoliating

The HydraFacial machine will use vortex cleansing and hydra peel tip to cleanse and exfoliate the skin. This step will remove dead skin cells and sebum while opening the pores.

Step Two: Gentle Chemical Peel

We change out the tip on the HydraFacial wand to deliver a gentle chemical peel. This is not irritating or painful like other chemical peels. With the HydraFacial, the wand infuses non-irritating salicylic and glycolic acids into the skin that will loosen up debris deep in the pores.

Step Three: Extractions

If you have ever gotten manual extractions during a facial, don’t worry! This is not as painful or uncomfortable as those extractions. Instead, the HydraFacial wand uses a painless vortex vacuum suction to remove impurities and blackheads from your pores, once the debris is loose from the chemical peel.

Step Four: Hydrating Serum

The final step of your basic HydraFacial is the hydrating serum that gives the facial its name and helps to soothe and hydrate the skin. The wand applies soothing proprietary antioxidative and hydrating serum that is filled with nutrients and peptides. 

This serum will rejuvenate and hydrate the skin leaving it looking healthier, plumper and glowing. 

There are also available add-ons to the HydraFacial if you would like a more complex experience. Make sure to talk to your aesthetician about boosters and additional services you can add to maximize your results even more.

Does the HydraFacial Hurt?

No! Many people describe the sensation of the HydraFacial as feeling like a cat’s tongue on their skin, or an electric toothbrush scrubbing their skin. Many clients actually enjoy the feeling of the HydraFacial during the process, but particularly love the way their skin feels when they are done.

There is actually no downtime at all, you can even apply makeup the same day. 

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

One of the many things that we love about the HydraFacial is that it delivers results right away. The initial hydrated and glowing skin you will get from the facial will last for about a week. But this isn’t the only benefit of the HydraFacial.

The treatment also delivers longer-term results by improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and brown spots. HydraFacials will also improve skin tone and texture, reduce the appearance of pores and prevent acne from forming. Over time, consistent HydraFacials will help build collagen and improve the appearance of oily, congested and thinning skin.

In order to maintain these long-term results, experts recommend you get a HydraFacial every month. With this commitment to your skin care routine, you will get to enjoy a beautiful, healthy complexion that you will love showing off.

Here at Skin Body Soul, we have helped countless men and women get the glowing skin they’ve always wanted through the HydraFacial. We’ve seen the results this treatment can offer and want to help others like you get the skin of their dreams as well.
