Hydrafacials are quickly becoming the trend in face care across the US for an excellent reason. They are the perfect choice for those individuals looking for a non-invasive facial treatment that provides instant results. The process also has the added benefit of leaving your face hydrated and glowing in only thirty minutes. Read on to discover why this skin resurfacing procedure is the newest breakthrough treatment.
Hydrafacial – What Is It?
As stated above, a hydrafacial is a non-invasive facial treatment that powerfully resurfaces the skin. The treatment is done through cleansing and exfoliating the skin. Along with the processes of extraction and hydration, impurities within the skin cells are removed while at the same time moisturizing the skin through the use of serums.
The term " hydra " refers to the treatment’s incredible hydration of the skin. The procedure is fast and effective, with the total completion time coming in at about thirty minutes. The other significant reason many are taking advantage of this treatment is that the results appear almost instantaneously, and there is no need for a recovery period.
Hydrafacials should not be confused with microdermabrasion treatments. Whereas a microdermabrasion treatment uses aluminum oxide crystals to blast the skin's surface, a hydrafacial uses a wand that vacuums out the pores and infuses moisturizing serums back into the skin. With this significantly gentler approach to skincare, hydrafacials are much more refreshing and soothing.
When undergoing a hydrafacial, some improvements can be seen in the appearances of:
- Oily, often acne-prone areas of the skin
- Dry skin
- Uneven skin tone
- Wrinkles and accompanying fine lines
- Damage resulting from sun exposure
- Age Spots
- Acne such as blackheads
- Pores that are clogged or enlarged

No matter your skintype – dry and flaky skin that is oil prone to acne or even a combination of both – you are a good candidate who will significantly benefit from a hydrafacial treatment. The treatment is also enjoyable for those individuals who are prone to experiencing skin sensitivity as well.
Don’t let the fact that a hydrafacial making use of both exfoliation and extraction procedures scare you off. The process will not irritate the skin, and it is also relatively painless. The last step of the procedure is the delivery of serums to the skin for hydration which will leave your skin exhibiting a radiant, smooth glow of health. Many individuals have compared a hydrafacial to the same feeling as that of a light facial massage.

One of the major selling points of hydrafacials is that there is no need for downtime or recovery time. You even have the option to apply makeup on the same day as the procedure if you want. However, many patients prefer to enjoy the glow that the treatment creates and not cover it up.
