Everyone wants to have skin that is bright and smooth. It can be tempting to spend a small fortune on serums and other skin products in an attempt to solve skin concerns like wrinkles and blocked pores. A Hydrafacial treatment can be very effective in combination with a basic skincare routine in achieving a youthful, natural glow.
Hydrafacials are a very popular skin treatment. According to the Hydrafacial website, a Hydrafacial is performed every 15 seconds and is currently available in more than 80 countries. Moreover, Hydrafacials have become a standard treatment for all types of skin because it targets many common skin concerns like dryness and aging with little to no side effects and no downtime.
Hydrafacials have become an in-demand treatment because they achieve instant results. After just one treatment, you will notice a difference in the firmness and brightness of your skin. Clients can get a Hydrafacial just once before an important event or get them regularly on various body parts to maintain skin health.
What is a Hydrafacial?
A Hydrafacial is an advanced deep cleansing, exfoliation, and hydration treatment performed by a licensed esthetician. It typically includes a chemical peel, extractions, and the ability to further personalize the treatment with a variety of medical and non-medical serums that address particular skin concerns and additional modalities such as lymphatic drainage and LED therapy.
A hydrafacial is similar to another treatment called microdermabrasion, which uses a mildly abrasive instrument to gently sand the skin and remove the thicker, uneven outer layer. However, a Hydrafacial uses a single exfoliating tip paired with suction to remove dead skin cells from the surface of the face. This alone makes some people say that Hydrafacial treatments are much more effective. Once the skin is exfoliated, serums are infused into the skin, a key step which makes a Hydrafacial extremely effective against various skin concerns.
The tool used in a Hydrafacial is called a Hydrapeel Tip, which looks like a pen. It is used to vacuum out blackheads, dirt, oil, and impurities while hydrating, plumping, and nourishing serums are applied to the skin.
What Does a Hydrafacial Do?
A Hydrafacial works to target various skin concerns, such as:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Elasticity and firmness
- Skin hydration
- Congestion and acne
- Dark spots
- Pore size
Before your appointment, please talk with your esthetician about your skin concerns so that they can ensure your Hydrafacial treatment is ideal for your unique skin type.
How Does a Hydrafacial Work?
There are three steps involved in a Hydrafacial:
- Cleanse and peel – The skin is exfoliated to remove dead skin cells from the outer layer of the skin. This is done with a Hydrafacial tip.
- Extract and hydrate – The Hydrafacial tip gets the gunk out of the pores and delivers topical moisturizers simultaneously.
- Infuse and protect – Serums are applied to the skin that are geared toward your skin goal using the Hydrafacial tip. This treatment is customizable based on your particular skin conditions.
An entire Hydrafacial treatment can be completed in as little as 30 minutes and requires no downtime.
What are the Benefits of Hydrafacials?
A Hydrafacial treatment can be extremely beneficial for the skin in several ways. It can give you a more hydrated, bright, plump, and clear complexion. It can also improve signs of aging since it reduces fine lines and wrinkles, increases firmness, evens tone, texture, and brown spots, and reduces enlarged pores.
With long-term use, a Hydrafacial can increase collagen production, slowing the aging process and improving skin hydration and elasticity.
Who Should Not Get a Hydrafacial?
A Hydrafacial is appropriate for all skin types. However, you should not get a Hyrafacial if you have an active rash, sunburn, or moderate to severe acne or rosacea. You should also check with your obstetrician or dermatologist before getting a Hydrafacial while pregnant since some of the ingredients used during a Hydrafacial have not been tested and proven safe for use during pregnancy.

The face is not the only body part that can benefit from a Hydrafacial. BeautyMed has several options for body treatments that can be treated on their own or in addition to the face, including:
