The 5 Simple Steps of a HydraFacialThe HydraFacial is one of the most popular in-office facial treatments today, and it’s easy to see why. From celebrities to everyday people, anyone can benefit from this universal treatment. It targets many common skincare concerns, including dryness and aging. The simple five-step process resurfaces the skin, clears out pores, and hydrates, all while being tailored to address each patient’s individual needs.
The HydraFacial BasicsThe HydraFacial treatment is the newest advance in non-laser skin resurfacing. This medical-grade treatment is the only one of its kind that uses hydradermabrasion to simultaneously combine cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration, and antioxidant protection. Combining these treatments results in radiant, beautiful skin with no discomfort or downtime.
Step 1: Cleansing and Exfoliation With HydradermabrasionTechnicians start by using a small Vortex Exfoliation tip to cleanse the skin’s surface. This tool opens the pores and removes the uppermost layer of makeup debris and dead skin cells. The cleansing process gently exfoliates the skin’s surface as it moves along the face.
Step 2: Gentle Chemical PeelThe exfoliating serum contains two excellent chemical exfoliators. Glycolic acid and salicylic acid provide a gentle chemical peel. This step banishes blackheads and removes acne-causing bacteria from deep within the pores.
Step 3: ExtractionsThe HydraFacial is the only skin treatment that uses patented Vortex-Fusion technology to deeply cleanse and remove impurities from your clogged pores while simultaneously delivering vital nutrients to hydrate and protect the skin. The unique spiral design and powerful suction provide unparalleled and non-invasive skin resurfacing to open pores temporarily. This allows your technician to effectively cleanse, exfoliate, and extract impurities evenly without causing any damage to the skin. The Vortex Extraction tool acts as a vacuum cleaner on your skin, removing dead skin cells, blackheads, and other debris. A cup at the base of the extraction tool collects the extracted impurities, providing patients with visual confirmation of the extraction process.
Step 4: Tailoring Your TreatmentThis versatile facial treatment can be tailored to safely and effectively address your unique aesthetic concerns. We can customize many aspects of the treatment, from serum boosters to suction power, to specifically target your personal skincare concerns. Because we design your treatment plan based on your unique and specific goals, your treatment won’t be like anyone else’s.
Step 5: Serum ApplicationA custom serum will be applied to your skin following extraction for a completely custom finish. This step also uses the Vortex Fusion tool, which infuses an antioxidant-and-collagen-rich serum into the skin to promote elasticity and hydration. The serum creates a cooling and refreshing sensation on newly cleansed skin, leaving patients with a smooth, glowing, and hydrated finish.
