4 Questions to Ask a Hydrafacial Specialist
The non-invasive, non-surgical HydraFacial technique produces results with no discomfort or recovery time. The overall texture, tone, and look of the skin are reported to be improved with HydraFacial. This is a result of the thorough exfoliation that thoroughly cleans your pores, removes debris, and enables greater absorption of face serums made specifically for your skin type.

Facials are a great way to maintain proper skin health and offer beautiful, glowing results, but they are also a form of relaxing self-care. Whether you are wanting to receive the odd facial treatment as a little treat for yourself or want monthly appointments to sustain the beautiful results and experience your best skin long-term, HydraFacials are an excellent option that delivers both a relaxing spa experience as well as effective results.
While both procedures provide exfoliation and skin rejuvenation, the process by which they do so differs. HydraFacial treatments are performed using a tool that has a specialized tip to gently exfoliate the surface of the skin while simultaneously sucking up the dead skin and dirt that are left behind. Once the exfoliation process of the HydraFacial is complete, an infusion of serums will be applied to the skin, depending on the final desired results the patient wishes to achieve. To contrast, chemical peels are done by applying a specified compilation of acids that work to peel off the top layer of the skin to remove any dead skin cells and impurities. The process of a chemical peel is typically considered to be a bit harsher on the skin than that of a HydraFacial, but both treatments are considered to be very effective exfoliation and rejuvenating treatments that provide beautifully smooth and glowing results.
The HydraFacial treatment only takes around 30 minutes to complete but offers beautiful results that can last up to 4 to 6 weeks. Many patients will opt to receive monthly HydraFacials to ensure that their desired results are sustained for as long as possible. To help prolong these results in between appointments, it is highly recommended that patients invest in a good quality skin care regimen that will keep their skin sufficiently hydrated and protected from sun damage, as well as ensure that they are consuming the recommended daily 8 glasses of water. Avoiding activities such as alcohol consumption and smoking will also help to keep your body and skin sufficiently hydrated to further prolong the desired results.
After just one HydraFacial treatment, patients will be able to enjoy a beautiful, healthy glow and smooth complexion, but many patients will choose to undergo multiple sessions to achieve longer-term and more dramatic results. Repeating treatments can provide more significant results, such as a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and acne scarring, as well as an evened-out tone and texture in the skin that can be enjoyed for longer than expected (6 weeks). Patients who wish to see the results provided by multiple sessions can support the development of these results by taking proper care of their skin on a daily basis through the use of high-quality skin care products. The total timeline for which it will take patients to achieve their desired results will depend on the overall health and condition of their skin, which will also affect the longevity of the results. A consultation with a HydraFacial specialist will be able to offer more accurate timeline estimations and a clear treatment plan.
There are some tips to keep in mind when leading up to your HydraFacial appointment to ensure that your skin is as healthy and prepped as possible and that you get the most out of the treatment. It is highly recommended that patients avoid the use of any chemical peels, laser treatments, dermal fillers, or Botox for at least 2 weeks before the appointment, and to avoid risking sun damage through UVA or UVB exposure to the area that is going to be treated at least one week before the appointment. Within two to three days before the appointment, patients should avoid the use of any exfoliants, Tretinoin products, or products containing hydroquinone. The skin should be cleansed of any makeup or oil products when arriving for the appointment. Other than that, the HydraFacial treatment itself is relaxing, so the patient should have no anxieties and will be prepped for a relaxing experience by the specialist.
