What Does a HydraFacial Treat?

One of the most impressive parts about the HydraFacial is just how versatile it can be. In addition to reducing enlarged pores, improving the appearance of acne and other blemishes, and clearing oily and congested skin, this treatment can also address irritating discoloration and textural issues found on your face.

Perhaps even more impressive is the HydraFacial’s ability to address fine lines and wrinkles, noticeably enhance skin elasticity and firmness, and boost your skin’s health for the long-term. Gentleness and versatility are this treatment’s main strengths, so if you have any issue with your skin’s appearance, a HydraFacial is likely an effective way to start improving it.

How Does HydraFacial Work?

Two distinct factors set a HydraFacial apart from other similar treatments on the market: their patented Vortex-Fusion delivery system and rejuvenating serums.

These mechanisms are broken down into three separate procedural steps: cleanse and peel, extract and hydrate, and fuse and protect.

Cleanse and Peel

In this stage, a new layer of skin is revealed via gentle exfoliation and skin resurfacing. The HydraFacial achieves this through the application of one of their patented serums. The solution is spiraled through the HydraFacial device, creating a stream powerful enough to remove a layer of dead skin and other pollutants without being painful for the patient.

The new tissue layer is healthier and more vibrant than the removed layer, creating a noticeable “glow” throughout the entire treated area. This is part of the reason so many patients leave our office feeling more confident in their skin even after only one treatment.

Extract and Hydrate

The HydraFacial device then utilizes concentrated suction to remove debris and pollutants from within the pores. Blackheads and general acne symptoms are drastically reduced during this stage of the treatment. In addition to treating existing blemishes, the extraction process can also help reduce future blackhead and acne development — allowing you to enjoy both immediate and long-term effects from this procedure.

It is also worth noting that suction extraction can be considered a safer option for pore extraction than traditional hand extraction since it uses a controlled amount of pressure in a focused area and does not cause the same amount of skin damage.

An exhaustive list of skin conditions can arise from dehydration: dryness, scaly skin, peeling, flakiness and tight-feeling skin, to name a few. In fact, many dermatologists and skincare experts believe hydration to be the most critical factor in maintaining healthy, lively skin, which is why the second step is such a critical part of the HydraFacial procedure.

By hydrating the skin during the extraction process, this procedure simultaneously removes pollutants from the pores and skin and replaces them with beneficial ingredients that your body needs to remain healthy and appealing.

Fuse and Protect

This stage is all about adding as many beneficial substances to the skin as possible. The upper layer of the skin is flushed with a solution of antioxidants and peptides that will help bolster and maintain that signature post-HydraFacial glow.

Peptides are a uniquely useful ingredient in skincare because of their ability to promote collagen production, one of the key components in keeping your skin looking youthful and wrinkle-free. Unfortunately, the amount of collagen your body naturally produces decreases over time, so giving your skin the tools it needs to keep that production flowing can yield substantial long-term benefits.

Another substance in the serum is hyaluronic acid, which helps the body maintain moisture to keep your tissue hydrated. It can also help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, redness and textural issues and is often used as an injectable treatment to restore volume and smooth fine lines and wrinkles.

What Kind of Results Can I Expect From a HydraFacial?

Patients who undergo a HydraFacial can expect to have healthier, more vibrant skin with noticeably reduced acne or skin discoloration. Patients can expect the results and hydration to last between five and seven days. In some cases, results can remain noticeable for a bit longer, but this depends entirely on your unique skin condition and anatomy.

Since it is normal for the results of facial procedures like the HydraFacial to fade with time, we recommend maintaining a monthly HydraFacial routine for best results. Regimented, regular treatment is the only way to sustain the improvements.

What Should I Expect During My HydraFacial Recovery?

It is normal to experience some minor pain or discomfort in the treated area directly after the procedure, but most symptoms should resolve within 24 hours.

HydraFacial was explicitly developed to give patients a way to prioritize their skin health while continuing to move along in their busy lives, which is why you can resume your regular activities and apply makeup immediately after the procedure without worrying about any recovery or downtime.
