Why is Hydrafacial Good for Your Skin?

Hydrafacial treatments are known to be gentle skin resurfacing procedures that help rejuvenate the skin. Hydrafacial helps address various skin concerns such as (but not limited to) clogged pores, acne, fine lines, and scarring. Hydrafacial is deemed gentle as it does not penetrate the layers of the skin deeply, like how chemical peels work. Thus, this makes Hydrafacial treatments safe for people in general. Based on client reports, Hydrafacial rarely prompts side effects and requires no downtime. But since it is a gentle treatment, it does not show very dramatic results. Hence, there is a need to do multiple sessions so that results will be more visible.

A closer look at a Hydrafacial

Hydrafacial, from the term itself, uses water to rejuvenate the skin. It uses jets of water that will serve as the cleanser and exfoliator of the skin, improving the skin’s texture and suppleness. To further rejuvenate the skin, the treatment makes use of a hydrating serum. The Hydrafacial treatment is mainly done in three steps: the first step is to exfoliate dead skin cells using water jets. At the same time, this step helps loosen trapped specks of dirt and impurities. The second step involves applying an acid peel solution to deep cleanse the skin, freeing accumulated debris, dirt, and impurities that can clog the pores and cause bumps. Lastly, the third step involves the attachment of a vacuum which helps suck impurities out of the skin. Then, the hydrating serum that helps in rejuvenation is applied. The serum aims to leave the skin fresher and is customized based on your skin type and specific skin problem.

In which areas of the body can you do Hydrafacial?

Although Hydrafacial is usually done on the face, you can still treat other areas of the body with particular skin concerns. It is a gentle treatment that allows treatment in all body areas and still gets consistent results. Other than the face, it is also usually used on the back as acne treatment and on the arms and hands to address different signs of skin aging.

The benefits of Hydrafacial for your skin

Hydrafacial has been proven to benefit the skin for several years already. Specifically, its benefits are the following:

Skin tone improvement

Hydrafacials can help in making the skin tone more even because it effectively reduces the appearance of hyperpigmentation. Usually, dull skin shows when there is a buildup of damaged or dead skin cells and dirt. Hydrafacial addresses this skin concern through its exfoliation powers, revealing clever and brighter skin beneath.

Clogged pores cleanup

As mentioned in the second step of Hydrafacial, an acid peel is applied. The purpose of this peel is to partly dissolve and remove comedones– an accumulation of excess sebum, dirt, and dead skin cells that are trapped inside the pores. Then, the vacuum in the third step seals off the unclogging of pores.

Smooths scars

During wound-healing processes, the body makes more collagen in the area to help in recovery. However, collagen is sometimes produced too quickly, causing accumulation in the area in an uneven manner. This phenomenon results in the formation of scars. With too much collagen, scar tissues usually appear depressed or raised. Also, scar tissues appear lighter due to less melanin in the area. Hydrafacial helps in this skin problem. Its resurfacing action smooths the skin, making the scar edges softer and less visible. The procedure also stimulates collagen production, adding to the volume of the depressed scar tissue.

Lessens the appearance of hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation is characterized by having specific areas of the skin appear darker. These pigmentations are caused by several factors, including (but not limited to) hormonal imbalances, acne, aging, and sun damage. These dark patches also appear in different shapes and sizes. They can be small and round or large and irregular. Hydrafacial helps reduce the appearance of these dark patches through its exfoliating mechanisms. Exfoliation increases cell turnover, thus, encouraging the growth of more even skin.

Reduces the appearance of larger pores

There is no such thing as “shrinking” pores. However, pores become more visible, enlarged, or dilated due to the combined impurities such as sebum, dead skin cells, and dirt in the pores. On the other hand, if your pores are clean and unclogged, they appear smaller. Hydrafacial addresses this concern using its deep cleansing mechanism.

Treats some acne types

Certain types of acne, such as blackheads, can be addressed by Hydrafacial due to its pore-cleansing and exfoliating benefits. Although it can only address mild to moderate acne, the hydrating serum applied in the last step of the treatment can be made to help ease discomfort and reduce inflammation that usually prompts breakouts. Moreover, because Hydrafacial is collagen-stimulating and exfoliating, it may help in reducing the appearance of superficial acne scars. However, since the resurfacing effect of Hydrafacial is only gentle, it would not be enough to address severe acne scarring. Treating mild to moderate acne scars may take monthly sessions lasting from 4 to 6 months to see results fully.

Reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines

Exfoliation benefits the skin by removing dry, thin, aging skin layers while stimulating collagen production. This exact mechanism is exhibited by Hydrafacial, thus helping make wrinkles and fine lines look smoother. With the increased collagen during the treatment, in addition to the rejuvenating ingredients of the hydrating serum, skin texture is improved, resulting in firmer, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin.

Key Takeaway

Hydrafacial is a skin resurfacing procedure that is suitable for everyone in general. It helps address multiple skin concerns such as hyperpigmentation, acne, and scarring. In addition to the benefits of the treatment’s mechanical processes, the hydrating serum helps make the skin more youthful-looking, hydrated, and plump.
