Decoding the Steps of a HydraFacial: A Comprehensive Guide

In the ever-evolving world of skincare treatments, HydraFacials have emerged as a revolutionary non-invasive procedure, promising radiant and rejuvenated skin. If you’ve ever wondered what goes on during a HydraFacial session, you’re not alone. 

The Hydrafacial treatment is more than a facial. It uses patented technology to detoxify skin, remove dead skin cells and extract impurities, as well as hydrate and nourish skin to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles, target open pores, reduce sun damage, correct problematic skin and instantly rejuvenate dull complexions. The HydraFacial treatment is soothing, refreshing, non-irritating and gives instant results.

At RT Aesthetics we are passionate about helping our clients to reach their potential. Our vision is to help you look and feel fabulous from the inside out. You can book a Hydrafacial with one of our lovely practitioners today but before you do, did you know that there are three types of HydraFacials that you get to choose from? Let’s dive into your three options a bit more.

Three Types

There are three main types of HydraFacials: Signature, Deluxe, and Platinum.


The Signature HydraFacial is a 30-minute treatment that provides a thorough cleanse, exfoliation, extraction, and hydration. This option is ideal for those who are new to HydraFacials or simply want a quick and effective treatment.


The Deluxe HydraFacial includes everything in the Signature HydraFacial, but this 40-minute treatment also includes a booster serum and LED light therapy. The Deluxe HydraFacial is ideal for those who are looking for a targeted treatment but don’t necessarily need the comprehensive treatment offered in the next therapy.


The Platinum HydraFacial is the most comprehensive option. This 60-minute facial includes everything in the Signature and Deluxe HydraFacials but provides a lymphatic drainage massage. This treatment is ideal for those who are looking for a highly targeted, comprehensive treatment that will address all of their skin concerns.

Let’s embark on a journey to decode the steps of a HydraFacial, demystifying the process and uncovering the secrets behind its growing popularity.

Hydrafacial, A Step By Step Guide

Step 1: Cleansing and Exfoliation

The HydraFacial experience begins with a thorough cleansing to remove makeup, dirt, and other impurities from the skin’s surface. This initial step sets the stage for the subsequent processes, ensuring a clean canvas for the facial treatment. Following cleansing, a gentle exfoliating serum is applied to rid the skin of dead cells, promoting a smoother texture and preparing it for the deeper phases of the facial.

The goal of this step is to kickstart the renewal process, allowing the skin to breathe and absorb the upcoming nourishing elements more effectively.

Step 2: Acid Peel

After the initial cleanse and exfoliation, many HydraFacial sessions incorporate a mild chemical peel. Don’t let the term “chemical peel” intimidate you; in this context, it’s a gentle solution designed to enhance skin texture. The acid peel helps to further exfoliate the skin, promoting cell turnover and addressing issues like fine lines, mild sun damage, and uneven skin tone.

This carefully formulated peel is tailored to suit different skin types and concerns, ensuring a personalised approach to skincare.

Step 3: Extraction

One of the distinguishing features of HydraFacial is its ability to perform painless extractions using a vacuum-powered extraction tool. This step targets the removal of impurities such as blackheads and congestion from the pores. The suction action not only clears out debris but also helps to minimize the appearance of enlarged pores, leaving the skin looking refined and refreshed.

Unlike traditional manual extractions, HydraFacial’s extraction process is gentle, making it suitable for even the most sensitive skin types.

Step 4: Hydration

Hydration is a crucial aspect of any skincare routine, and HydraFacial excels in this department. The fourth step involves the application of antioxidant-rich and deeply hydrating serums. These serums are tailored to address specific skin concerns, providing a boost of moisture while nourishing the skin with essential vitamins and nutrients.

The hydration step is a key factor in achieving the coveted HydraFacial glow, leaving your skin looking plump, radiant, and well-nourished.

Step 5: LED Light Therapy

Some HydraFacial sessions include the added benefits of LED light therapy. This non-invasive treatment utilises different wave lengths of light to stimulate collagen production, reduce inflammation, and promote overall skin rejuvenation. The choice of light colour depends on the individual’s skincare goals, whether it’s targeting signs of aging, calming irritated skin, or promoting a more even skin tone.

The inclusion of LED light therapy sets HydraFacial apart as a comprehensive and versatile skincare solution.

So In Conclusion,

A HydraFacial is more than just a facial treatment; it’s a multi-step process designed to cleanse, exfoliate, extract, hydrate, and rejuvenate the skin. Whether you’re a skincare enthusiast or someone exploring professional treatments for the first time, understanding the intricacies of a HydraFacial can empower you to make informed decisions about your skincare journey. Embrace the experience, and let the transformative power of HydraFacial unveil a radiant new you.
