Everyone wants their skin to be smooth, bright, and look young. So, instead of spending a lot of money on oils, creams, essences, and serums for a multistep skincare routine, you might be able to get a natural glow with a facial that is becoming more popular.
HydraFacial is just one of the many treatments to keep healthy skin over time. This makes it more than just a regular spa treatment. It is a multistep facial treatment that is usually done with a machine.
The treatment works to cleanse, exfoliate, extract, and apply various rejuvenating serums. But aside from these facts, what are the main ingredients of HydraFacial? Let’s find out below with the help of our team here at Luxe Med Spa Aesthetics.
What is HydraFacial?
HydraFacial is a resurfacing treatment that is used in medical settings. It cleans out your pores and hydrates your skin at the same time. It can be done anywhere in the United States where a licensed medical professional or a certified HydraFacial esthetician is present.
In the four steps of the treatment, the skin is cleaned, exfoliated, extracted, and hydrated with serums injected into the pores with a pen-like device called the HydraPeel Tip.
The serums are made to fit the needs of each patient and have anti-aging and antioxidant properties. See for yourself why this treatment is done every 15 minutes worldwide.
At Luxe Med Spa Aesthetics, we also have Eye and Lip Perks that can be added to any Hydrafacial service for $50 each. Each Eye and Lip Perk comes with a serum you can take home and use for the next month!
What happens during a Hydrafacial?
The steps of a hydrafacial are quick and easy. Most of the time, they can be done in one session, but some clients may need more than one, depending on the quality and look of their skin.
Before agreeing to do the procedure, your facial plastic surgeon will carefully examine your skin’s condition to decide if this treatment is proper for you. Even though it’s not a very invasive treatment, it involves deep pore cleaning, which could worsen some skin conditions.
Hydrafacials are also helpful for people with acne and signs of aging like wrinkles, marionette lines, fine lines, and crow’s feet. With its patented technology, the Hydrafacial system can clean and rejuvenate the face in several ways during a single treatment. The following steps make up the procedure:
Cleaning the skin
One of the best things about the Hydrafacial procedure is that it cleans the skin deeply. The Hydrafacial technology comes with a cleansing piece that pulls out all of the dirt, oil, and other impurities from the surface of your skin, especially in the forehead, T-Zone, and chin areas.
For the best results, lactic acid, glucosamine HCI, and algae (full of antioxidants) are used to clean, condition, and moisturize the skin. This is like a version of microdermabrasion that is less painful and much more satisfying.
After ensuring the skin is clean, the next step is to give it a deep exfoliating treatment. During this step, the esthetician will use two tips based on your skin’s appearance.
One is a bit stronger, while the other is great for people with sensitive skin. The esthetician will mix glycolic acid and salicylic acid to give the skin a deep exfoliation that has been shown to prevent acne.
Extracting Deep-Ridden Impurities
In the third step of the process, you’ll use a more robust suction-like tip to carefully and thoroughly remove dirt, oil, makeup, blackheads, and sebum from your open pores that have gotten deep into your skin.
While this happens, the device releases a honey extract that keeps the skin hydrated, calms the skin, and stops pain or discomfort.
Infusions of serum are put on the skin in the fourth and final step of the process. Usually, this is a mix of peptides, hyaluronic acid to hydrate and plump up your skin, and antioxidants (green tea extracts and horse chestnut seed) to protect the skin from damage and impurities.
This mix is called Antiox, and it has arnica flower extract and red algae extract, which make the skin smoother and brighter.
Ingredients and Chemicals of HydraFacial
Typically, these ingredients are used when doing a HydraFacial treatment for your skin.
This vital ingredient helps to remove dead skin cells and reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Glucosamine also keeps skin healthy by making sure it stays moist and fed.
Algae contain antioxidants that keep skin hydrated and make it feel soft, smooth, and healthy. Algae also help the body get rid of toxins and gives the skin vitamins and minerals it needs.
Lactic acid is an alpha hydroxyl acid and a powerful ingredient that can help reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles. It also helps keep skin smooth and robust, which is good for health.
Benefits of HydraFacial
There are a few more benefits to getting a Hydrafacial in addition to the ones we’ve already discussed.
Experience and Results That Stay the Same
Since Hydrafacial relies more on high-tech equipment than human skills, most clients have similar experiences and get similar results.
Clients often feel calm and at ease during the procedure because it’s like getting a profound facial to cleanse and massage simultaneously.
The system is easy to use, and treatments can be changed to meet the needs of each client’s skin.
It’s good for most skin problems.
Skin conditions come in all shapes and sizes; they don’t care how old you are. The Hydrafacial skin treatment, on the other hand, doesn’t either.
People of all ages and stages of life can benefit from this treatment, from teenagers with acne to middle-aged adults with wrinkles and fine lines to older adults with sunspots and sunken skin.
But it’s important to note that people with rosacea, sunburns and active rashes shouldn’t use this treatment because some ingredients could worsen these skin problems.
Pregnant women shouldn’t get a Hydrafacial either because some of the ingredients, like salicylic acid, haven’t been tested or proven safe for them.
