What Is a HydraFacial?
HydraFacials are an advanced facial treatment that combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, and hydration to deliver total facial rejuvenation with antioxidant protection. Dr. Jeanine Downie developed HydraFacial in 2002 to address common skin concerns such as aging and acne-prone skin. The treatment utilizes hydrating serums along with "microdermabrasion", which removes dead cells from your surface for smooth, radiant skin that looks years younger post-appointment.
A HydraFacial is a facial treatment that utilizes water to deep cleanse the skin, including cleansing and exfoliating steps before extracting impurities through pores using a vacuum-like device. A successful HydraFacial can improve the appearance of skin by reducing fine lines and wrinkles, clearing blackheads out, improving texture and tone as well as hydrating dry areas on your face, and brightening any dark spots caused by sun damage or acne scarring. According to the Cleveland Clin, there are about three million cases of ingrown hairs each year and this type of facial can prevent that as well.
The HydraFacial Process
HydraFacial is a multi-step treatment process, beginning with cleansing and exfoliation. Subsequently, extractions to remove blackheads and whiteheads are performed, before applying hydrating products to moisturize skin while protecting it against environmental damage with antioxidants. Finally, finishing touches such as microdermabrasion or LED light therapy may be added for extra benefits.
How Long Will a Hydrafacial Last?
The length of time your Hydrafacial will take will depend on which treatment option you select. Generally speaking, most hydra dermabrasion facials last between 30-60 minutes but can sometimes take shorter or longer depending on what work needs to be done on your skin.
How Much Does a Hydrafacial Cost?
The price of HydraFacial treatments varies, usually falling within the $125 to $250 range. The price depends on how long your skin requires cleansing and exfoliation, how deep the pores need to be cleaned out, and what type of extractions will be performed during each session. Price may also vary based on the specials that the spa is offering.
