Kate Winslet and Amy Poehler are just a few headline celebrities endorsing HydraFacials, a hot, new skincare treatment. But is it just another celebrity-endorsed skincare fad or does it actually get the job done and improve our skin? Let’s dig deeper, shall we?
HydraFacials – The Benefits, The Process
The HydraFacial is a patented skin treatment available in spas and dermatology offices alike. It is often referred to as “hydradermabrasion” since it involves microdermabrasion-like exfoliation to remove the dull layer of dead skin cells.
What exactly is a HydraFacial?
The HydraFacial is a non-invasive procedure that relies heavily on a specialized wand (called the HydraPeel Tip) that deeply cleanses and exfoliates while also infusing skin with customized serums.
Because of the deep exfoliation and pore clearance, the HydraFacial improves overall skin tone, texture and appearance. (Clean pores + dead skin removal = glowing skin!)
One study shows that HydraFacials are effective in treating aging skin with a provable decrease in pore size, less hyperpigmentation and reduced fine lines.
HydraFacials are also being used to treat acne, blackheads, rosacea, scars and sun damage.
How does a HydraFacial treatment work?
A licensed aesthetician or dermatologist performs this skin treatment procedure which is completed in 30 minutes (perfect for your lunch break).
The HydraFacial can be broken down into four parts:
- The aesthetician uses a specialized vortex-like wand on your skin which deeply cleanses and exfoliates the skin at the same time.
- The aesthetician uses the specialized wand to infuse an acid peel into the skin, which preps the skin for the following deep-cleaning steps.
- The aesthetician uses the wand in a slower, deeper manner for extractions. This is the deepest cleanse of the treatment, pulling out debris from the most entrenched pores.
- The aesthetician uses the wand to drench the pores with hydration and other moisturizing serums customized for your particular skin.
