What is a HydraFacial treatment?
The HydraFacial treatment is a facial treatment that combines several steps to cleanse, exfoliate, extract and hydrate the skin. The HydraFacial cleansing process works as follows:
Cleansing and exfoliation: The esthetician uses the HydraFacial brush with a cleaning vortex and exfoliation tool to gently cleanse and exfoliate the skin, removing sebum and dead cells while opening pores.
Extraction: To decongest the pores and extract debris, the beautician then changes the end of the brush with a suction instrument.
Hydration: Finally, the beautician applies a cream based on salicylic acids and glycolics on the skin with a feather, which is infused into the skin with the HydraFacial brush.
How long does a HydraFacial treatment session last?
Depending on the number of steps to be performed and individual needs, a HydraFacial treatment session typically lasts between 30 minutes and 1 hour. The treatment is quick and the results are immediate. It should be noted that the most beneficial results are usually seen 24 to 48 hours after the session.
Are there any side effects associated with HydraFacial?
The HydraFacial treatment generally has few side effects and is generally well tolerated. Side effects may include mild edema, mild irritation, or rarely erythema, depending on sources. Skin redness, mild superficial irritation or itching may also occur, but these side effects do not require special care and are very temporary. The HydraFacial treatment is generally quick, painless and has visible results immediately.
What skin types can benefit from HydraFacial treatment?
The HydraFacial treatment is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive and reactive skin and all phototypes. Even on tanned skin, this can be done all year round. A variety of dermatological indications, such as sagging skin, wrinkles, fine lines, scars and age spots, can be treated with the HydraFacial treatment. It is particularly effective in improving skin elasticity and firmness, evening out skin tone, reducing enlarged pores and treating oily and congested skin.
What is the difference between HydraFacial and other facial treatments?
The HydraFacial treatment stands out from other facial treatments like hydrodermabrasion and microdermabrasion thanks to its patented vortex technology and its ability to cleanse, exfoliate, extract and hydrate the skin in a single session. Unlike other facial treatments, HydraFacial is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive and reactive skin, and can be used all year round, even on tanned skin. The HydraFacial treatment is an attractive option for those looking to improve the appearance of their skin because it is quick, painless and has immediately visible effects.
How many HydraFacial sessions are recommended for optimal results?
The results of the HydraFacial treatment are visible from the end of the first session, but it is advisable to carry out maintenance sessions regularly, with one session per month, in order to maintain the skin throughout the year for a optimal result. We suggest scheduling one appointment per month, in order to get the best HydraFacial treatment. An attack treatment with four sessions every three to four weeks is recommended, followed by a maintenance treatment with one session every two to three months.
Can I combine HydraFacial with other aesthetic treatments?
To improve results and enhance the effect, HydraFacial treatment can be used in tandem with other aesthetic treatments. The following treatments can be combined with the HydraFacial:
Microdermabrasion: Microdermabrasion treatment removes dead skin cells and stimulates production of collagen and elastin, which promotes the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.
Peelings: Exfoliants are treatments based on alpha-hydroxydecanoic acids (AHA ) which exfoliate the skin and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which improves the texture and tone of the skin.
Laser treatments: Laser treatments such as radiofrequency can be used to treat wrinkles , wrinkles and hydration of the skin and can be combined with the HydraFacial to improve results.
Injectable treatments: Injectable treatments, such as filler injections, may be used to fill in skin lines and improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and can be combined with the HydraFacial to achieve the best results.
Is the HydraFacial treatment painful?
Typically, HydraFacial treatment does not cause pain. It is designed to be gentle and non-irritating, and the majority of patients find it very comfortable.
How long is the recovery time after a Hydrafacial treatment?
The HydraFacial treatment does not require any recovery time, meaning you can return to your normal life immediately after the treatment and feel great. The results are visible immediately: the skin is more radiant, smoother, plumper and more hydrated. Additionally, after the procedure, there is usually no noticeable irritation, meaning you don't need any recovery time.
