What is it?
One HydraFacial is performed somewhere in the world every 15 seconds. Don’t even try to do the math: that is equivalent to approximately 2 million treatments worldwide last year alone. That’s more than the total number of Botulinum Toxin injections administered in the United States in 2017.
HydraFacial is so much more than just a facial. It’s an experience. A moment of pleasure. And a confidence booster. It is based on the unique “Skin Health for Life” philosophy. But it’s also about much more than healthy, beautiful skin. When our skin looks good, we feel good inside. That’s the difference you get with a HydraFacial: total well-being.
HydraFacial uses patented vortex technology to deeply cleanse the skin and effectively deliver botanical ingredients containing nutrients such as hyaluronic acid, horse chestnut seed extract, red algae extract, copper, zinc, and magnesium peptides to where they do the best. In addition, HydraFacial also provides powerful antioxidants to counteract damage by free radicals – from pollution, sun, and stress – which can degrade the skin and accelerate the aging process.
So, for long-term healthy skin and a glowing complexion, why settle for an ordinary facial when you can choose a HydraFacial?
- Elasticity and firmness
- Even complexion and vitality
- Skin texture
- Brown spots
- Oily and congested skin
- Dilated pores
- Wrinkles and fine lines
The steps in a Hydrafacial treatment
STEP 1: CLEANSING AND EXFOLIATION
A cleansing serum is applied to your face while the spiral tip removes dead skin cells. This prepares the skin for the next treatment steps. Our multi-action skin solution deeply cleanses the skin while softening sebum, oils, and impurities to facilitate extraction. A cosmeceutical breakthrough for skin rejuvenation created for all skin types.
STEP 2: LIGHT PEEL
Then, a solution with a low percentage of glycolic and salicylic acid releases impurities and debris lodged in the pores. Don’t worry, the glycolic/salicylic acid peel is gentle enough to avoid unpleasant stinging.
STEP 3: EXTRACTION
Using vacuum suction, the HydraFacial MD® device then removes impurities and debris directly from the pore. No more pinching and poking your face!
If you are the kind of person who likes to see what is coming out of your clogged pores, you will love this part of the treatment. Instead of performing a manual extraction, the technician uses a fairly sophisticated tool that acts like a vacuum cleaner. The sucking sound it makes is strangely satisfying, but the best (or worst?) part is the machine’s reservoir that shows exactly what has been extracted – more than you think!
STEP 4: INSTANT HYDRATION
Now that your skin is clean, the HydraFacial MD® delivers peptides and antioxidants for instant hydration. You can also add an anti-wrinkle or anti-acne booster tailored to your skin.
