Does Hydrafacial Worth Your Dollars? Personal Opinion
This is Dr. Alhallak personal opnion on Hydrafacial treatment for skin Rejuvenation, albany cosmetic and laser centre does not own Hydrafacial machine as it offers more effective treatment with lower cost. Therefor, if you made your mind about getting this specific treatment, then stop reading. But if you want to get better value for your dollars, then I encourage you to learn about other alternatives.
There’s no denying that HydraFacial can help beautify your skin. But if you are looking to reduc ewrinkles and fine lines to improving brown spots and rosacea, it is better to invest the mony in more effect treatment.
HydraFacial is an over rated non-invasive facial procedure, it claims to be the best and most effective facials available. This may sound like a cliché, and it is!
To be honest with you, I tried the hydrafacial and I do believe it is over rated. So, how does HydraFacial measure up to other facial procedures? Let’s find out.
As the company stated in this video, the treatment is just as effective than commonly used skin rejuvination. In other words, the efficacy is modest at its best. IPL is great for pigmentaion, however it is outdated skin rejuvnation treatment and we advise our client against it in most cases
What is the HydraFacial?
To perform the procedure, estheticians use the HydraFacial MD machine. Which is a fancy name for a microdermabrasion, The device performs 4 facial rejuvenation treatments in a single treatment. Further, the procedure exfoliates, cleanses, and removes dead cells. When I compared the efficacy of Hydrafacial with Silk peel from Clarion, I noticed that silk peel offer better peeling, strong vacum and higher infusion
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 so why paying the extra cost?
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. In other words 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 as effective as normal microderm.
Moreover, 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.
Why to pay more for hydrafacial?
in my humble opnion, you pay extra for the brand name and mass media similar to the video below
What are the side effects of HydraFacial?
Since the procedure is mild, it means it has low side effects! HydraFacial claims "firm no-torture policy." But in my experience in the cosmetic fields, "no pain, no gain"
Yes, I agree that combining a clog-purging mixture of willow extract, salicylic acid, and Tasmanian pepper, with a vortex pressure, the device removes impurities from pores. but the skin resurfacing mechanisim is not that effective.
