If you love fresh looking skin then you may have heard of the HydraFacial – it’s becoming incredibly popular, and for good reason. But why do so many people love it, and what can you expect from this treatment?

What is a Hydrafacial

First, let’s look at what a HydraFacial actually is. It’s a treatment that involves a medical-grade hydra-dermabrasion device. It consists of three steps – cleansing, exfoliating, and then moisturizing using serums.  The hydra-dermabrasion device vacuums out pores, getting rid of any dirt or excess oils, whilst at the same time pushing in ingredients to moisturize and brighten the skin.

You can also ask for booters, so if you have a specific issue, you can ask to have that treated too (for example, fine lines or brown spots).

Here’s why HydraFacials are popular right now:

It Suits Everyone – That’s right – (almost) everyone can make the most of a HydraFacial. No matter your skin type or age, a HydraFacial can help you out. Teenagers and adults suffering from acne will feel the benefit, as well as those with troublesome wrinkles or hyperpigmentation.

You’ll have to skip this treatment if you have active rashes, rosacea, sunburn, or if you’re pregnant, however.

It’s Super-Fast – HydraFacials are done and dusted in under half an hour. Just long enough for you to enjoy the feeling of being pampered, but not so long that it takes over your whole day. There’s no recovery time, either, so you won’t have to deal with peeling or redness – some celebrities make the most of HydraFacials just before red-carpet events to help them to look extra-glowy.

It’s Comfortable, Not Painful – With other treatments, the extraction process of removing dirt and grime from your face can feel pretty uncomfortable, but that’s not the case here – it feels like a light, relaxing massage.

You Can See Results Instantly – HydraFacials work straight away to reduce redness. Plus, you’ll have the unique experience of being able to see all the freshly removed gunk, which may sound gross, but it’s oddly satisfying.

It’s Customizable – By making the most of add-ons, you can target specific problems. If you want to brighten your complexion, therapists will use a vitamin-C solution to help. If you have redness or acne, you can ask for a combination of HydraTherapy and LED light therapy (this involves shining a blue light on red areas to calm the skin). If you’ve got sensitive skin, you can ask to have the suction power toned down slightly (this is especially important if you want to focus on dark under-eye circles). If you want plumped-up lips, your therapist can do that, too – with no needles involved.

The Results are Consistent – For a 30-minute treatment, the results are consistently great. If you really love the look of your skin after a HydraFacial, you can expect the exact same results next time. It’s a safe, comfortable procedure that you can book when you want (if you want glowing skin before a wedding, for example, you can rely on great results with no redness or side-effects).
