Skin enthusiasts everywhere appreciate great facials, and the HydraFacial is no exception. With no downtime and results that show improved skin clarity and tone, the HydraFacial is a great go-to for people wanting quick results!
HydraFacials are non-invasive. They gently clean skin, eliminate excess dirt and oil, and result in a tighter, more youthful facial appearance. Learn more about why Safira MD Aesthetics & Wellness Center recommends HydraFacials as the ultimate treatment for skin rejuvenation with a quick turnaround.
What Is a HydraFacial?
A HydraFacial treatment utilizes a special machine with a wand attached. The process involves four separate steps, each designed to ensure that the result of your facial is a smooth, clean, and youthful appearance.
During the exfoliation process, we will utilize a deplaning tool to remove dead skin cells from your face. The process is painless and ensures that your face is left with evenly distributed new skin cells, removing any dull parts that may not have fully entered the natural shedding phase yet. The exfoliation process may leave you feeling like your skin has been scraped. However, there is generally no redness, and the remaining steps ensure that your face is fully moisturized to eliminate the possibility of downtime.
After exfoliation, we will apply an acid peel to your face. This peel combines two powerful ingredients: salicylic and glycolic acids. Salicylic acid works to deter acne, while glycolic acid accelerates skin cell turnover, increases collagen production, and boosts moisture retention. Glycolic acid also helps to reduce signs of aging and lighten any hyperpigmentation.
Once the acid peel has fully set in, we will remove it from your face. Upon removal, your skin will feel smoother, and any remaining debris in your pores will loosen. This will allow for easier removal in the extraction phase of the facial.
During traditional extraction sessions, tools are used to remove dirt without performing any exfoliation or peeling procedure first. This can leave you with redness and indentations and potentially lead to further breakouts. However, the extraction process used during a HydraFacial is much easier on your skin and relatively comfortable. Utilizing the HydraFacial machine, we will use the attached wand to move across all areas of your face.
The HydraFacial wand is designed to pick up any remaining oil or dirt from the exfoliation and peeling processes. To ensure that your skin is fully clean, we may pass the wand over your face several times before moving to the final phase of the procedure.
Infusing is arguably the most pleasurable step in the HydraFacial procedure process. First, we will apply a cream containing collagen to your skin. This cream may provide your skin with some serious moisture, reduce acne, and lighten any dark spots. Collagen also increases the flow of blood to your skin, leading to a rosier complexion. After the collagen cream is infused, we will massage an antioxidant serum into your skin. This moisturizer simultaneously improves skin elasticity and skin rejuvenation.
The Benefits of HydraFacials
Why do we offer HydraFacials? These treatments provide skin rejuvenation to a wide variety of our patients with reliable results.
Works on All Skin Types
People with all different skin types – dry, oily, combination, or sensitive – will see the benefits of a HydraFacial. Unlike other facials performed only on specific skin types, the HydraFacial is for everyone. Because it’s effective and gentle, it’s an ideal treatment to include in your regular skin maintenance program.
Since the treatment is divided into multiple steps using the same equipment and creams, the results are consistent. You can expect a quality outcome with a HydraFacial.
A HydraFacial is a great option for occasions when you need a facial pick-me-up but don’t want to undergo significant recovery time. A HydraFacial can be done the same day as the event you want to look your best for, such as a wedding or party.
The results from a HydraFacial are immediate, meaning you will walk out from our office with clean and glowing skin. Oftentimes, the entire procedure can be completed within 30 minutes.
When to Get a HydraFacial
A HydraFacial is a great option to temporarily brighten and cleanse your skin when you don’t have a whole lot of time for recovery. Some other treatments, such as chemical peels and laser resurfacing, also provide similar results. However, it may take longer before you see the full effects of those procedures. Thus, if you’re looking for a quick way to brighten and tighten facial skin, the HydraFacial is a great option.
How Long Do HydraFacial Results Last?
Typically, the results of a HydraFacial will last up to seven days. However, results are compounding, which means that the more often you get a HydraFacial, the better your skin will look over time. We recommend that most of our patients have a HydraFacial once every four weeks to maintain results. This can be easy to do when the procedure itself is so relaxing!
In addition to regular HydraFacials, ensure that you take care of your skin on a daily basis using a proper skin routine. Your routine should involve regular cleaning and applying a serum, appropriate moisturizers, and a sunscreen of at least 30 SPF.
