What Should You Not Do After a HydraFacial?


What Should You Not Do After a HydraFacial?

If you are looking for a quick, gentle treatment that will give you glowing, attractive skin, you should think about receiving a HydraFacial.

At RT Aesthetics Newcastle, we can use this facial to hydrate your skin and brighten your complexion. This treatment is relaxing, comfortable, and effective. A HydraFacial is a patented skin treatment available in medical spas and dermatology offices. It’s also sometimes called “hydradermabrasion” because it involves microdermabrasion-like exfoliation paired with hydrating serums.


What Should You Not Do After a HydraFacial?

Receiving a HydraFacial is a very gentle way to improve your cosmetic problems and achieve radiant, beautiful skin. Since this treatment does not use harsh or irritating ingredients, there is no need for you to make major lifestyle changes after you get this type of facial. However, we will advise you to avoid using certain skincare products and performing specific activities.

Keep Your Face Dry

You should not wash your face for about six hours after your treatment. You should also avoid taking a shower or engaging in intense exercise that will cause you to sweat. Keeping your face dry during this time will protect your skin and allow you to receive optimal results.

Adjust Your Skincare Routine

You should not use beauty products that contain glycolic acid or other ingredients that will exfoliate your skin for the next two days. Since your face will be bright and fresh after you receive your HydraFacial, you will not need these skincare products. In addition, you should not receive a dermaplaning treatment, chemical peel, or microdermabrasion treatment for two weeks.

Stay Out of the Sun

To protect the tissues on your face, you should wear strong sunscreen for at least a week. In addition, you should avoid spending a prolonged amount of time in the sun for the next 14 days.

What Cosmetic Problems Can This Facial Improve?

We can adjust the techniques and serums that we use during your facial treatment. As a result, this cosmetic treatment can address many types of skin issues and aesthetic problems.

Improving Your Acne

It’s normal to experience acne when you are an adult. Even if you try to take excellent care of your skin, you can develop uncomfortable blemishes on your face. If you have blackheads and other acne issues, you will probably benefit from getting this facial.

Removing dirt and debris from your skin will clear up your acne and reduce your risk of developing blackheads and other issues in the future.

Treating Your Lines

If you have lines and wrinkles on your face, you should consider getting this treatment. Removing your dead skin cells will make your fine lines and creases less noticeable.

Improving Your Pores

Even if you regularly wash your face and use powerful skincare products, your pores can become clogged with oil and dirt. This issue will cause your pores to look enlarged. Receiving this treatment is an ideal way to unclog your pores and enhance the texture of your skin.

Fixing Your Dark Spots

As you get older, you may develop visible dark patches on your face. If you would like to correct this problem, you should receive this powerful facial. Our treatment will fade your dark spots and give your skin an even, attractive look.

What Techniques Will My Hydrafacial Include?

Your facial will last for about 30 minutes. During this time, we will use advanced techniques to hydrate your tissues, eliminate dead skin cells, and administer moisturising serums. Although we will customise your facial to match your unique cosmetic needs and concerns, we will usually perform four main steps during your treatment.

Step One

We will start your facial by using a special tool to gently remove dead skin cells and makeup fragments from the surface of your skin. Removing these dead cells will give your face a bright, healthy appearance.

Step Two

After we complete step one of your facial, we will use an acid peel to carefully cleanse your skin. This acid peel will contain a gentle mixture of glycolic and salicylic acids. This chemical mixture will eliminate debris that is located in the deeper areas of your pores. This cleansing technique will also reduce your chance of developing acne problems in the future.

Step Three

During the third step of your facial, we will use a handheld device to suction additional debris out of your pores. We will begin by gently using a powerful serum to help our handheld device suck up dirt and debris that is embedded in your skin. As we complete this process, we will deposit this material into a receptacle. Seeing the amount of dirt and other materials that we extract can be a very rewarding and interesting experience.

Step Four

Finally, we will use our special tool to administer a hydrating serum that contains a special mixture of collagen proteins and antioxidants. These ingredients will improve the health of your skin and diminish your fine lines, sun damage, and other cosmetic issues.

Will I Have to Take Time Off After My Facial Is Complete?

This treatment is designed to refresh your skin without causing you to experience irritation or other problems. As a result, there will be no need for you to avoid your workplace or other responsibilities after your facial is finished. Instead, you will be able to immediately return to professional duties or drive yourself back to your home.

How Many Facials Should I Receive?

Since we will use powerful techniques to improve your skin, your face will look brighter, softer, and healthier immediately after you receive one facial treatment. However, this treatment will be more effective if you receive regular appointments. In general, we recommend getting this facial treatment once every 30 days.

Who Is Eligible for This Facial Treatment?

In general, you will be eligible for this treatment if you are in relatively good health. Certain infections and other health conditions can prevent you from using this facial treatment. In particular, you will not be eligible to receive this facial if you are suffering from rosacea or have an active rash or sunburn on your face. In addition, you should not receive this facial while you are pregnant.

Can This Treatment Only Be Used on My Face?

When you notice the powerful effect of this facial, you will probably want to use this technique to enhance the skin in other areas. Fortunately, this treatment can be used in many different locations. For example, we can perform this treatment on your upper chest, hands, neck, and upper back.

Can I Use This Facial to Improve My Skin Before My Wedding Day?

We can create a customised bridal beauty package that will allow you to look radiant and beautiful on your special day. In addition to receiving injectables, massages, and other treatments, you should consider including this facial in your beauty plan. In general, we will advise you to get your facial during the week before your wedding. Receiving your facial at this time will allow your skin to look bright and attractive in all of your wedding photographs.

Can I Receive Other Treatments During My Facial?

We can add massages, oxygen sprays, and many other treatments to your facial. Adding one of these services to your appointment is a good way to nourish your skin and enhance your cosmetic experience.

Receiving a Massage

It’s common to add a soothing massage to your facial treatment. For example, we could perform a scalp massage and give you aromatherapy during your appointment. Receiving a massage will help you relieve tension and relax during the treatment process.

Improving Your Eyes and Lips

The skin around your eyes and lips can become very dry or puffy. We can use special techniques to moisturize your lips and eliminate bags under your eyes.

Getting an Oxygen Blast

We can nourish your skin by providing you with a vitamin oxygen spray. This treatment will use a special combination of enzymes, minerals, vitamins, and other rejuvenating ingredients to improve the condition of your skin.
