There’s no denying that HydraFacial can help beautify your skin. From minimizing wrinkles and fine lines to improving brown spots and rosacea, the lists are endless.
HydraFacial is the latest non-invasive facial procedure, which claims to be the best and most effective facials available. This may sound like a cliché, but do you know that a HydraFacial is done every 15 seconds?
Let's do the math. That's about two million treatments last year alone. But how does HydraFacial measure up to other facial procedures? Let’s find out.
What is the HydraFacial?
To perform the procedure, estheticians use the HydraFacial MD machine. The device performs 4 unique facial rejuvenation treatments in a single treatment. Further, the procedure exfoliates, cleanses, and removes dead cells.
But that's not all!
It also revives the skin by applying a serum, which contains Hyaluronic acid, peptides, antioxidants, and peptides.
Also, it works to address any skin concerns, which includes the following:
- Wrinkles and fine lines Hyperpigmentation Dark Spots Clogged Pores Mild acne Enlarged Pores Oily skin
What is the mechanic behind the procedure?
HydraFacial uses a special, spiral suction tip that removes impurities. Afterward, the device delivers the serum straight into the pores.
Indeed, this procedure is painless and delivers long-term and immediate results. Here's the best part, the procedure requires no downtime!
But, some may experience mild redness and tightness for one hour after the treatment. No worries, the risks and side effects of HydraFacial are mild across the board.
HydraFacial vs. Microdermabrasion
One may ask the difference between the two. Both are quite similar but differ in cleaning methods.
Microdermabrasion is a noninvasive procedure that gently exfoliates the skin to remove the outer layer. Further, the device seals in the treatment by infusing a serum that leaves the skin feeling radiant and soft.
HydraFacial is quite similar to Microdermabrasion. But, unlike the manual extractions performed via sanding in Microdermabrasion, HydraFacial makes use of a vacuum tip. The vacuum tip cleanses and unclogs the pores. As such, it's safe to say that HydraFacial is milder and more effective.
So choosing the right treatment to go for depends on your specific skin concerns. One advantage Microdermabrasion has over hydradermabrasion is that it's proven to treat stretch marks.
If stretch marks are your major concerns when looking for a non-invasive treatment, microdermabrasion is perfect. However, microdermabrasion is known to alter skin color and may your skin with dark or light spots. But, HydraFacial leaves behind an even skin tone and beautiful skin after treatment.
Overall, Microdermabrasion is best for people with stretch marks. Also, It may not be the best choice for people with psoriasis, warts, active rosacea, open sores, fragile capillaries, and other skin issues.
What are the side effects of HydraFacial?
It is a procedure that leaves no side effects! HydraFacial has a firm no-torture policy. What this means is, it's a procedure that gives patients a feel-good and relaxing experience. It's not a painful procedure. In actuality, patients compare the feeling to a mild massage.
By combining a clog-purging mixture of willow extract, salicylic acid, and Tasmanian pepper, with a vortex pressure, the device removes impurities from pores.
No pressing or squeezing is required! What's more, you can see the, suctioned impurities, which patients like.
