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.

It is delivered based on your skin type, desired outcome, and previous experience with peels. Some estheticians will apply a short round of LED therapy after the facial. What this means is, you can customize your treatment to fit your personal needs. Each add-on will help improve and address your any skin concerns.

Even though it wins some points for inclusivity, people with the following conditions should abstain:

  • Sunburns Rosacea Active rashes, Pregnant women

Some ingredients used while performing HydraFacial haven't been proven safe for pregnant people.

How much does the procedure cost?

As with other cosmetic treatments, costs vary. It depends on where you stay, the experience of your doctor (or injection certified pharmacists), and the area you want to treat. So, HydraFacials cost from $300 per treatment.

Whether you choose to get a HydraFacial at Albany laser and cosmetic center, you're assured a high-tech facial that gives consistent results.


The treatment is not technician-dependent compared to other types of facials. So you can depend on it anytime.

Also, some patients feel worried about the safety of the treatment. As a result, many dermatologists are cautious about delivering facials in their office. This is because results can vary, with some clients getting inflamed and scarred from aggressive procedures. But HydraFacial is consistently effective and safe.

    Oh. It’s been done using a machine? Impressive. When I first heard about the treatment I thought it involved applying some things on the face. I think it would be a good option for my wrinkles.

Since I started hearing about the treatment, I never knew that the machine used can perform different unique facial rejuvenation treatments in a single treatment! That’s amazing as it comes in handy in exfoliating, cleansing, and removing dead cells.

    The whole thing sure is painless and the immediate and long-term results are encouraging. My neighbor who got one done just a few days ago is back and running about already! I guess it is the next big thing in the cosmetic industry now.

    Your post on HydraFacial Edmonton was shared by a colleague. When I read through, I just knew this is what I needed right now. I’ve actually thought of other facial treatments but they seem to have some side effects that won’t be pleasant for me. This one is definitely a better option for me.

    Wow. Stumbling on this post on HydraFacial just made my day. I’ve been on the internet searching for any facial procedure that is not a painful procedure. I’m glad I found this and to know that the whole thing can be compared to the feeling of a mild massage is just encouraging.

    Yeah, microdermabrasion is known to alter skin color and leave spots. But since HydraFacial is becoming popular and people agree that it leaves behind an even skin tone and beautiful skin after treatment, then I guess I’ll go that way, especially as I’m not after stretchmarks removal.

    HydraFacial is a milder and more effective facial procedure I must admit. I got it done some days back and I was really surprised that I felt no pain during and even after the treatment. There was no redness or any sign of work done and I like it. It’s a very recommendable treatment.

    I followed some friends to go for this treatment and when they were done, they were telling me that they were able to customize their treatment to fit their personal needs and I noticed their acne and wrinkles were no longer visible as it was in the morning. I’m already thinking of getting one done myself. Thank God it’s also quite affordable.
