Have you heard about « glow-cedures »? The term invented by our Anglo-Saxon neighbors refers to medical aesthetic procedures that aim to give the skin a perfect « glow ». This glow is characteristic of healthy and radiant skin.
And this is exactly what HydraFacial does, a beautiful skin treatment that everyone is talking about with one performed every 15 seconds worldwide.
If you have not yet heard of HydraFacial, it is a medical-grade hydradermabrasion appliance using patented technology. The sessions comprise 3 steps: cleansing, exfoliation then infusion of the skin with specific intensive serums.
No needles, no injections, no pain, only deep cleansing of the skin. In my opinion, done regularly – once a month – it is an essential treatment for beautiful skin to be integrated into your routine that in no way stops you from undergoing aesthetic surgery or medicine procedures. We all know well how regular, diligent cleansing of the skin contributes to its radiance, maintaining its beauty and preventing premature aging!
What is hydradermabrasion?
Rather than aggressing the skin with grains as with a traditional scrub or traditional dermabrasion, HydraFacial is a much gentler technique. It consists in simultaneously cleansing the pores with gentle suction, exfoliating the skin, and infusing it with powerful active ingredients to hydrate, illuminate, plump, and protect the skin.
I use a specific wand equipped with what HydraFacial calls « vortex technology ». The three standard steps can be combined with other serums: boosters. These are used to treat specific skin problems such as brown spots, fine lines, or lack of firmness.
Here are 6 reasons to have a HydraFacial, your leading treatment for beautiful skin.
#1 Leading treatment for all skin types and all complexions
Acne, spots, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and even damage to mature skin caused by the sun, this treatment is suitable for teenagers and adults, whatever your skin type (fair, dark, black). However, if you are prone to rosacea, your acne is active and severe, or you are pregnant, it is preferable to check with your dermatologist first.
#2 A safe protocol with consistent results
The steps of HydraFacial are all the same and contrary to other types of facial treatments in institutes with which the results can vary from one establishment to another and one practitioner to another, HydraFacial guarantees consistent results and benefits. It is a gentle, patented technique that is not aggressive for the skin. This treatment is, therefore, safe and effective.
#3 More skin-friendly extraction
It is not because we have blackheads or small comedones that our skin is not sensitive. Extraction by hand during traditional skin cleansing is aggressive, causes redness and marks, and can even trigger a rash the following day. Furthermore, patients with reactive skin will often avoid this step for fear of adverse effects on their sensitive skin, and it can sometimes be painful. By combining the vortex technology with a solution of salicylic acid and anti-inflammatory actives, we will simply suck up the impurities blocking the skin pores, with no pressure. It is even pleasant!
#4 Immediate radiance with no downtime that improves session after session.
More than a traditional face treatment, the benefit is immediate: the complexion is more radiant. As an added bonus, by cleansing your skin regularly, HydraFacial improves the texture and tone of the skin and beautifies problem skin of which the pores are often blocked, with no risk of irritation. A session every month helps maintain the results and the skin is increasingly beautiful. At the end of the session, there is almost no need for makeup and you can resume your activities with complete peace of mind.
#5 A customizable treatment
Thanks to boosters, the treatment is adapted to the specific needs of your skin. For example, to treat brown spots we choose a vitamin C booster, and to act on skin aging we infuse a serum full of regenerative peptides and growth factors. In addition, the suction power can be adjusted, particularly for treating more delicate areas such as under the eyes. Furthermore, this suction can delicately plump while exfoliating the lips.
Finally, this gentle exfoliation can also be carried out with a solution of various concentrations of fruit acids, depending on the reactivity of your skin and your habits.
#6 Hydrafacial is perfectly compatible with aesthetic surgery or medicine
For all these reasons, I particularly recommend Hydrafacial within the context of a beauty and maintenance protocol after surgery or aesthetic medicine procedures such as injections, once the structure of the skin has been restored.
After face surgery such as lipofilling, a facelift, or blepharoplasty, it is necessary to wait approximately 2 months before starting your Hydrafacial sessions. As for injections, especially botox, I recommend waiting at least 3 days after the injections, the time for the product to sufficiently take effect.
