The amazing benefits of Hydrafacial as a dermatological treatment
Hydrafacial treatments are now a MUST have treatment for those looking to care for their skin.
Hydrafacial is a gentle approach to cleansing your pores while simultaneously treating the skin with active ingredients to moisturise, brighten and protect. Once you’ve experienced the benefits of this revolutionary technique, you’ll never go back to regular facials.
There’s no need for several treatments as Hydrafacial incorporates several therapies with none of the discomfort associated with other skin procedures. Fast, effective and long-lasting, Hydrafacial can be customised to each person, their individual condition and skin health goals. The treatment is soothing, refreshing, non-irritating and immediately effective.
How does a Hydrafacial work?
Unlike traditional dermabrasion treatments that scrub your skin with grit, Hydrafacial is a mild procedure that incorporates a medical-grade device that deep cleans the pores, exfoliates, hydrates and infuses the skin with intensive serums.
Gentle brightening agents are used to improve appearance while effortless extraction techniques draw out impurities and remove blackheads. A combination of hyaluronic acid, antioxidants and peptides then replenish, plump and hydrate your skin.
The final stage of a Hydrafacial treatment uses red and infrared light to stimulate collagen and reduce skin redness. The red light also encourages the production of vitamin D. Hydrafacial can also be used with blue LED light to destroy acne bacteria and reduce breakouts. Other targeted add-ons can be applied to treat individual skin conditions such as dark spots, signs of ageing, fine lines, dull patches and acne-scarred areas.
Each individual receives different benefits from Hydrafacial depending on their current skin condition and what they would most like to improve. The first step is to have your skin evaluated by a skilled, trained technician. They will identify what you hope to achieve and what Hydrafacial can help with and include this in a personalised treatment plan.
Benefits of Hydrafacial treatment
The HydraFacial is said to help improve overall skin texture, tone, and appearance. This is due to the deep exfoliation that cleans your pores, removing debris and allowing for better penetration of face serums tailored to your skin type.
Suitable for all skin Types, Textures and Tones
Whether your skin is dry and flaky, oily and acne-prone, dull and lacking vigour, uneven in tone, or shows signs of sun damage or premature ageing, Hydrafacial is suitable for all and can produce quick results to improve the appearance of any skin type. Effective for both men and women and even those with sensitive skin, anyone can benefit from Hydrafacial treatment (though it is not recommended during pregnancy).
Hydrafacial is not just for the face
Although Hydrafacial treatment is most commonly carried out on the face, it can also be done anywhere on the body. Hydrafacial can be applied to the shoulders, back, hands, arms, feet, neckline and cleavage. That makes it an excellent choice for freshening up the skin and remedying imperfections on most parts of the body before the swimwear is unpacked on holiday.
It not only unclogs pores but reduces them in size
Hydrafacials work to unblock pores and remove dirt and debris, but will also shrink them. We all get dirt, sebum and other gunk stuck in our pores. As this increases, the pores on the face become overstretched creating oversized, oily, dark dots. Once a Hydrafacial treatment removes blackheads and muck, the skin’s pores reduce to their natural size. Also, once your pores are opened up having been thoroughly cleansed, they are more receptive to topical products, acne creams and washes, and anti-ageing serums.
Hydrafacial results are instant and there’s no downtime
As soon as you leave the salon you’ll notice the difference that a Hydrafacial session has made. Your skin will feel refreshed and revitalised, and you’ll be able to see visibly smooth, healthy and glowing results. Should you wish, you can see just what the machine has pulled from your skin (it’s even become a bit of a trend on Instagram). Though it’s recommended you don’t wash your face for a few hours after treatment, you can apply makeup and go about your regular activities. That’s why Hydrafacial is a popular choice before nights out, weekends away, proms and even A-list red carpet events. Reputedly, Beyonce, Kate Winsley and Britney Spears are Hydrafacial devotees.
The effects of Hydracial treatments are lasting and get better and better
While the impact of a Hydrafacial session can be felt straight away, the noticeably visible results will last at least a week. Your skin will feel cleansed and revitalised for longer too. Unlike some other facial therapies, Hydrafacials will better benefit your skin’s health and appearance with additional treatments. After all, the quest for better skin is never a one-time fix. You will see your skin continue to improve with each session.
Hydrafacial is quick and painless
A typical Hydrafacial treatment takes just half an hour, meaning you can book a session during your lunch break, after a workout in the gym or before you embark on the school run. The therapy is painless and you won’t feel any discomfort, burning sensations or pressure. That means there’s no need for any numbing creams and the experience is very relaxing.
Hydrafacial can be paired with other dermatological treatments
Hydrafacial works well alongside other beauty and cosmetic treatments. You can have a Hydrafacial and top off your fillers or botox at the same time. You would have to get the botox first, though, as it’s not recommended you lie down straight after. A Hydrafacial is perfectly safe to have with microblading or to get a non-ablative light and laser treatment for an extended spa day session.
Hydracial is fabulously customisable
Many different types of boosters can be used during or after a Hydrafacial treatment. Your technician will run through the options during an initial consultation when formulating your personalised plan. You can add in acid peels of different strengths based on your past results with them and what you’re looking for from the therapy. You could even have dermaplaning beforehand to remove dead skin cells and wispy facial hair to the extra serums to be better absorbed for an amplified Hydrafacial experience.
If you’re seeking to improve the tone, texture and appearance of your skin for a youthful, refreshed, healthy glow, but aren’t keen on ablative or invasive procedures, why not try an introductory Hydrafacial treatment to see the effects for yourself or book a monthly plan for optimum results?
