Our skin is subjected to urban pollution and UV radiation on a daily basis, both of which clog pores, dull the complexion, and harm skin health. It might be tough to acquire the smooth skin of our desires when exposed to such severe conditions; tough but far from impossible.
Thanks to technological advancements and dermatological research, people now have more natural choices for enhancing their natural beauty than dermal fillers, with many of them FDA-approved.
HydraFacial is one of the most natural and valuable treatments. Contact Danny Jelaca’s salon in Miami, FL, if you’re interested in this procedure or want to talk about it with a professional. We’ll provide you with all the details you need to decide if this type of facial treatment is right for you.
What is Hydrafacial?
A HydraFacial is a trademarked skin treatment that you may find at medical spas and dermatologist clinics. Because it combines microdermabrasion-like exfoliation with moisturizing serums, it’s also known as “hydradermabrasion.”
The HydraFacial is a three-step facial that thoroughly cleans, exfoliates, and hydrates your skin. Rather than using harsh methods like other facial treatments, this method emphasizes hydration, which can help to reduce discomfort and produce promising results. This expert process can assist with acne, dryness, and wrinkles, among other skin issues.
The noninvasive process works the same way as a conventional facial in a spa, but the results are more spectacular. This treatment is performed with a mechanical wand that cleans and exfoliates your skin while also administering serums according to your skin type.
About Dead Skin Cells
The skin cells that our bodies constantly shed and replace with new cells are called dead skin.
While dead skin cells are entirely natural and necessary for your skin’s renewal, they can accumulate over time, wreaking havoc on your appearance. Failure to exfoliate your face is the primary cause of this accumulation.
The HydraFacial is a fast treatment that eliminates dead skin cells and extracts pollutants while also cleaning and moisturizing. The therapy is relaxing, refreshing, non-irritating, and effective right away.
Perfect for any skin type and skin tone
Fortunately, this treatment procedure has been shown to produce excellent outcomes in individuals with various skin types. HydraFacial can assist your skin care regimen regardless of whether your skin is dry, oily, or a combination of the two.
Consistent and immediate results
You can observe the excellent benefits right away because the procedure is noninvasive. Because the HydraFacial technology controls so much of the process, you can expect a consistent, high-quality result every time. It’s great if you want a beautiful, healthy glow before weddings, celebrations, or other big events.
A HydraFacial can help with fine lines, wrinkles, and dry skin, which are some of the first indicators of aging. After the skin has been exfoliated, nourishing serums that increase collagen and elastin formation are administered. These are rich in growth factors and antioxidants, which moisturize the skin and help it appear and feel younger. As drooping skin is lifted, wrinkles and fine lines will be corrected.
A HydraFacial is particularly successful in treating rosacea because it tackles some of the skin condition’s most severe symptoms, such as facial redness, pimples, and enlarged pores. With specialized serums to treat problems linked with redness, the HydraFacial starts to work instantly, soothing troubled skin. Furthermore, even one HydraFacial treatment can smooth over face bumps and cleanse enlarged pores, leaving silkier and more even-toned skin.
How Does a Hydrafacial Treatment work?
Microdermabrasion is a treatment that is comparable to the HydraFacial. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, microdermabrasion employs a “mildly abrasive device to softly sand your skin, eliminating the thicker, uneven upper layer.”
However, HydraFacial is not the same as microdermabrasion, and some people believe it is far superior. HydraFacial treatment has the advantage of removing dead skin cells from the surface of your face using an exfoliating tip and suction. Serums are absorbed into the skin after it has been exfoliated. The major reason proponents claim it is so effective is because of the last step.
The treatment begins with a lymphatic purification procedure followed by a luxury hydrafacial that completely cleanses, removes blackheads, and moisturizes the skin. It also targets specific skin concerns with a specialty boost selected by your skin therapist.
Depending on the intricacy and luxury of the HydraFacial treatment, there usually are three to five phases.
Hydrafacial: a Five-Step Procedure
Cleansing & Exfoliation
Cleansing and exfoliating are the first steps of a HydraFacial treatment. Your aesthetician will use the HydraFacial wand to gently wash and exfoliate the skin using a vortex cleansing and hydra peel tip. In this process, your pores will softly open, and this is when the dead skin cells and sebum are removed. It’s been compared to having a spinning electric toothbrush softly brushed against your skin by those who have experienced it. In this process, your pores will softly open, and this is when the dead skin cells and sebum are removed.
The tip of the wand will then be changed to administer a light chemical peel by your aesthetician. HydraFacials employ a non-irritating blend of salicylic and glycolic acids for a mild yet effective peel, unlike other chemical peels that are typically irritating or unpleasant and leave your skin red for hours or days. This step’s goal is to loosen deep pore debris.
Your aesthetician will then change the wand’s tip to apply a gentle chemical peel. Unlike conventional chemical peels, which are generally irritating or unpleasant and leave your face red, HydraFacials use a non-irritating combination of salicylic and glycolic acids for a moderate yet effective peel. The purpose of this phase is to dislodge deep pore debris. The dirt, dead skin, and debris are gently suctioned out of the pores and away from the skin’s surface.
LED Light Therapy
LED LIGHT therapy is an addition to the treatment and provides extra benefits after the procedure.
- Red LED improves skin elasticity and firmness. It also helps significantly in reducing fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and other signs of aging.
- Blue LED Light therapy is hugely beneficial for people with oily skin by treating their problems and leaving the skin beautiful and clear.
Finally, the skin is treated with a solution containing restorative skin peptides, antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, and other helpful nutrients using the HydraFacial wand resulting in a radiant and regenerated appearance. This aids in the detoxification, rejuvenation, and hydration of the skin.
Hydrafacial for the Scalp
The same procedures that are done during a hydrafacial also apply to the scalp. This treatment exfoliates your scalp and nourishes your hair follicles with growth factors and skin proteins to get a healthy scalp and fuller-looking hair. This is good news for people who want to improve their hair growth and scalp health and get rid of scalp itchiness.
Patients should expect to observe improvements in scalp itchiness, dryness, and flakiness after just one treatment, as well as fuller hair.
You should arrive with clean, dry hair to get the best results from a hydrafacial scalp treatment. The cleaning-exfoliating-hydrating procedure is the first phase, which entails “vacuuming” away from all the muck accumulated on the scalp and hair follicles. This thorough cleaning goes above and beyond what other over-the-counter treatments can achieve. It’s not uncomfortable at all and feels like you’re using minty shampoo.
The aesthetician will apply a specific combination of growth factors and proteins to the scalp once it has been prepped for the second stage. The last step involves applying a nutritious serum to the scalp and stimulating it.
Guests won’t have to go home to wash their hair; they may go about their business without being concerned about any unpleasant residue. In fact, it’s best to keep the materials in your hair after the treatment to ensure that they’re completely absorbed. Some clients discover that they can go longer than normal without shampooing afterward.
Hydrafacial Side Effects
While the HydraFacial is generally risk-free, you may feel minor pressure from the wand during the procedure. The HydraFacial isn’t designed to hurt or create redness.
HydraFacial therapy is well tolerated by most patients, with few, if any, adverse effects. Some redness may develop after a HydraFacial, which takes about 30 minutes or less to clear. This is usually the only negative effect of a HydraFacial, and it is minimal and goes away soon.
Patients can disguise any redness with makeup after their HydraFacial treatment if desired. Some patients may have an adverse response to the serum or other materials used during HydraFacial in very rare situations.
However, before selecting what to include in your treatment, the aesthetician will take great care to address any known allergies, sensitivities, or other potential risk factors.
Each HydraFacial treatment takes less than an hour and requires no downtime. Unlike more invasive procedures such as chemical peels, you can immediately resume your daily activities.
However, you must follow some important rules after your facial treatment to enjoy its full potential.
- Don’t pick at your skin: Even if the aesthetician conducted some extractions, picking at your skin might irritate it.
- Toner should not be used the day after a facial treatment. Toners containing alcohol or exfoliating ingredients might cause dryness and irritation.
- After you’ve had your face treatment, don’t engage in vigorous exercise or go to a sauna. Heat and perspiration may be too much for your exfoliated skin.
- Wash your face gently since the serums used and the physical manipulation required may break the skin barrier. As a result, always use mild cleansers to eliminate debris without harming your skin’s barrier.
- When it comes to post-facial care, don’t use too many products, especially if they’re harsh or include irritants. Avoid at-home peels, toners, cleansers, retinol, and anything that contains salicylic acid.
- Limit sun exposure: If at all possible, avoid outdoor activities like going to the beach or the pool unless you’ll be wearing a hat the entire time. Your skin has just been deep cleansed, and it is now somewhat more sun-sensitive. Always remember to apply sunscreen.
FAQs about HydraFacial
