HydraFacial is medical-grade facial rejuvenation treatment that cleanses, detoxifies, exfoliates, extracts and hydrates in a single treatment. It also provides help with fine line and wrinkles, acne, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, elasticity, puffiness, and pore size. And its radiance-imparting properties deliver that “extra glow” making it a perfect treatment before a special event, a wedding, or fun vacation!
The treatment is so popular that a HydraFacial is performed somewhere in the world every 15 seconds. If you do the math this essentially amounts to 2 million treatments given globally last year alone. That’s more than the total number of Botox injections administered in the U.S. in 2018.
How Does a Hydrafacial Work?
The Hydrafacial is a medical-grade HydraDermabrasion device which carries out it’s patented four-part regimen through its handpiece that uses four different HydroPeel tips and various skin care solutions (chemical exfoliants, antioxidants, and hydrating serums like hyaluronic acid) to achieve its results. The patented spiral design of the tips used in conjunction with the HydraFacial vacuum technology to create a vortex effect to easily dislodge and remove impurities while simultaneously introducing solutions that exfoliate, hydrate and infuse your skin with antioxidants, peptides and hyaluronic acid. HydraFacial also provides mechanical lymphatic drainage that moves lymph fluid out of your skin, reducing puffiness and helping to speed toxins out of your system.
The steps together are meant to completely clear skin while also infusing it with powerful serums to promote long-lasting skin health as well as immediate rejuvenation. There are a number of other treatments that can be added-on to boost your HydraFacial treatment: GlySal- a peel without the post peel scaling and flaking; Britenol- addresses pigmentation; Dermabuilder- anti-aging, softens fine lines and wrinkles; Growth Factor- helps to speed up skin repair.
Extraction without Side Effects
How many times have you told a facialist to skip the extractions for fear of redness or next-day eruptions or simply because, they hurt and… isn’t a facial supposed to be relaxing?
HydraFacial has a strict no-torture policy and is one of the most popular procedures in our Columbus Skin Spa. Why you ask? Not only does it combine elements of other popular treatments, like microdermabrasion and chemical peels, thoroughly and intensively cleanses the skin providing unparalleled radiance-imparting results, but it’s also a truly relaxing, feel-good experience. It’s never painful — in fact, clients compare the sensation to a light massage. By combining vortex pressure with a clog-purging solution of salicylic acid, willow bark extract, and anti-inflammatory Tasmanian pepper, the device suctions oil and debris from pores — no squeezing or pressing required — and, at the end, you can actually see all that was removed, which people seem to like.
HydraFacial is Infinitely Customizable
The aforementioned boosters, are just one way your esthetician can tailor your treatment to really focus in on individual skin concerns and priorities. Do you need vitamin C-caliber brightening, or an infusion of growth factors for fine lines? During step one of the HydraFacial (“cleanse + peel”), your esthetician can also choose from three different strength glycolic-salicylic acid peels based on your previous experience with peels, your skin type, and your desired outcome. The tool’s suction power can even be customized, toning it down to tackle more delicate areas, like under the eyes, if we need to carefully loosen millia or boost circulation to clear dark circles or insider secret — a light vacuuming of the lips to plump them up, sans syringe, and cast off flakes.
At the end of the treatment you can opt for an LED treatment — red to soothe the skin and stimulate cell turnover, or blue to kill bacteria if your problem is acne-related.
A quick round of LED light therapy following your HydraFacial is another option, again personalizing it to the individual, — red to soothe the skin and stimulate collagen and elastin production as well as cellular turnover, or blue to kill bacteria if your problem is acne-related.
HydraFacial Plays Nicely with Other Facial Procedures
HydraFacial can be done the very same day as injectables and non-ablative light and laser treatments, like the V-Beam, which knocks out redness, and intense pulsed light, which some use to treat sun damage. It’s also a godsend, like, one week post-Fraxel when your face is literally falling off, as it speeds up the shedding process that resurfacing devices inevitably induce while also deeply hydrating the skin.
How It Works
CLEANSE & EXFOLIATE
A cleansing serum combining exfoliating lactic acid and glucosamine HCI with antioxidant-rich algae is delivered to your skin while the spiral tip washes away dead skin cells. This will prep your skin for the following treatment steps.
To provide deeper exfoliation, two different tips are available – one more aggressive than the other. This is combined with one of three different solutions containing varying levels of glycolic acid (7.5%, 15% or 30%) and salicylic acid (1.5% – 2%). The solution loosens impurities & debris that are lodged in the pores offering a combination of chemical & physical exfoliation.
Using Beta-HD with salicylic acid and vacuum suction, the HydraFacial device then ejects sebum, blackheads, impurities & debris straight from the pore. At the same time, honey extract hydrates and spiraea ulmaria flower extract calms and soothes.
Now that your skin is cleansed, extracted & exfoliated the HydraFacial delivers peptides (copper, magnesium, and zinc) & antioxidants (horse chestnut seed and green tea extracts) and hyaluronic acid for instant hydration. You may also add wrinkle repair or brightening to your treatment.
Top Performing Ingredients
– Algae Extract
Algae is rich in hydrating antioxidants that will leave skin feeling soft, smooth, and radiant. Algae also helps detoxify and replenish the skin with essential vitamins and minerals.
– Arnica Flower Extract
Known for its calming properties, Arnica Flower is beneficial for dry, irritated skin. With ingredients such as flavonoids, stressed out skin is soothed and renewed.
– Horse Chestnut Seed Extract
Research has shown that Horse Chestnut Seed Extract is one of the most potent antioxidants. It helps to protect skin and is considered to be an anti-solar agent when combined with a sunscreen, based on its ability to absorb light.
– Salicylic Acid
Salicylic Acid belongs to the beta-hydroxy family and acts as an exfoliating agent, sloughing away dead skin cells. This is extremely effective when targeting oily and congested skin because it helps reduce the build-up of dirt and sebum within the pores.
– Low Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring substance that helps to hydrate and plump the skin. LMW Hyaluronic Acid is able to keep skin hydrated longer while significantly decreasing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
