Hydrafacial is one of the most popular non-invasive facial treatments. Some of the Hydrafacial benefits include reduced acne, radiant skin, and even skin tone. This effect is achieved through a three-step process:
Using salicylic and glycolic acid, Hydrafacial helps to break up dirt and oil from the pore to remove dead skin cells and excess sebum. This is an important first step that can lead to damage if the skin is scrubbed with abrasive exfoliants. Some physical exfoliants that claim to be gentle on the skin can contain micro abrasives when viewed under the microscope. Using chemical exfoliants is recommended to avoid long- term damage to the skin that can occur from using harsh physical exfoliants. Using chemical exfoliants such as salicylic and glycolic acid helps to facilitate skin turnover rate and facilitate absorption of serum at the final step of Hydrafacial.
Hydrafacial before and after: Before this step, the skin is dull and dehydrated. The skin texture is uneven After this step, you can expect to see clearer and softer skin with even texture.
Hydrafacial achieves extraction using “vortex technology” which gently vacuums the skin, minimizing the damage that can occur during the extraction process. Using this technology, dirt, blackheads, oil, impurities are removed from the pore. One of Hydrafacial benefits is that it not only exfoliates and hydrates your skin; it also prevents blackheads and whiteheads from developing. If left untreated, dirt, oil, and other impurities in pores can solidify into blackhead or whitehead, leading to enlarged pores, uneven skin surface. Extraction was done traditionally by applying pressure around the pore. This method is not recommended as excessive pressure can lead to micro-tear on the skin and excessive redness at the pressure site.
Hydrafacial before and after: Before this step, the skin is clogged with impurity, which leads to visible pores. After this step, you can expect to see clearer skin, clean pores, and reduced appearance of pores.
The last step of Hydrafacial involved hydrating and delivering antioxidants that target your skin concerns. Antioxidants have been repeatedly shown to be effective in reversing signs of premature aging. Antioxidants help to reduce the process of oxidation by stabilizing free radicals. Free radicals are molecules that became unstable due to excessive exposure to harmful environmental factors, such as UV rays and pollutions. Oxidation causes collagen in the skin to breakdown, which decreases skin elasticity and volume. Because vortex technology helps skin serum penetrate deep into the skin, it is highly effective in hydrating dry skin. Additionally, applying antioxidants with this technology allows the active ingredient to penetrate deeper into the skin layer compared to traditional topical methods. This facilitates the serum absorption and skin’s defense against inflammation, which causes acne breakouts, dull skin tone, and fine lines. One of the Hydrafacial benefits is that it helps to even out skin tone by reducing dark spots from acne scars, age spots, and any unevenness in skin tone due to photodamage.
Hydrafacial before and after:
Compared to before taking hydrafacial treatment, you can expect to see your skin looking plumped with hydration after this step. Over time, lines and wrinkles on your skin appear reduced, signs of sun damage are less visible, and your skin feels firm and elastic.
