How does the HydraFacial treatment work and how it is different from other facial treatments?

Everyone wants clear, smooth, bright, and youthful skin even when they reach old age. Spending money on expensive oils, creams, and serums is of no use. They may help to keep up your daily skin routine but are not the end solution to all your skin maintenance issues. HydraFacial treatment is one of the best skin treatments that can provide all-in-one solutions for every skin type.

One of the trendy treatments also known as HydraFacial is the most popular way to pursue and maintain long-term skin health. It is more than the usual spa skin care treatment. As per the study, HydraFacial is performed after every 15 seconds and is currently available in 80 countries worldwide. Special machines are used for the HydraFacial processes called as HydraFacial MD. The aestheticians use these machines to clean, exfoliate, extract, and evenly deliver the rejuvenating serums to the skin. Due to its visible and quick results, it has become the most demanding skin care service that gives an instant glow and firms the skin’s surface.

How does HydraFacial work?

Many of you might be interested to know how HydraFacial works. Well, it is much more similar to another type of skin treatment called microdermabrasion. In microdermabrasion, the provider uses mildly abrasive instruments that relax your skin, gently. Then it removes the thicker and uneven-toned outer layer of the skin. After the process, fresh new skin appears and glows differently. On the basis of the microdermabrasion results, dermatologists and aestheticians don’t think that it is as effective as HydraFacial.

As per the HydraFacial company, the treatment process has three steps with no downtime, and the entire procedure is completed in 30 minutes. The three steps involved in the HydraFacial are:

1- Cleanse and Peel-off

The step is also known as resurfacing the skin which exfoliates it as well. In the exfoliation process, the dead cells are removed from the outer layer of the skin. It is due to the dead skin that the face looks two-toned as the patch with the dead skin cells looks dark as compared to the other part of the face. When exfoliation is done, these dead skin cells are removed and a smooth surface appears with the fresh skin layer. The exfoliation process has long been known to have the most beneficial skin effects that include brighter skin, non-clogged pores, and increased collagen production. The tip of the HydraFacial machine generates the fluid called a vortex, all over the skin that dislodges impurities and dead skin cells.

2- Extract and Hydrate

When the dead skin cells are removed, it becomes easy to get into the pores and extract all dirt from there. With the help of HydraFacial machines, the pores are made accessible and with the help of light pressure, the dirt is gently removed without causing pain. Once the dirt leaves the skin pores, the machine then hydrates the overall facial skin and moisturizes it thoroughly.

3- Infuse and Protect

The HydraFacial treatment is incomplete without the boosters and serums. These elements are considered the skin goal gears that reduce hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles, dull skin, enlarged pores. The best part of the treatment is that it is customizable. So it is totally in your hands that you can choose between the boosters and serums of your own choice that suit your skin type.

How HydraFacial is different from other facial treatments?

As an alternative, there are other facial treatments that somehow are performed with the same functionality as that of HydraFacial. Like there is Geneo Super-Facial, Diamond Glow, Dermal infusion, etc. All of them exfoliate the dead skin cells, hydrate, and reinject the boosters or serums. However, the technology used for each skin care treatment differs from one another. Let’s talk about other facial treatments and compare them with HydraFacial.

1- HydraFacial vs. Microdermabrasion

We have already discussed this above in the article about microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion is somehow similar to HydraFacial. Like HydraFacial it exfoliates and removes dead skin cells. However, the exfoliation process is different in microdermabrasion. Small crystals are used to adjust fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and acne scars. In microdermabrasion, the aestheticians don’t use serums.

2- HydraFacial vs. Dermalinfusion

Dermalinfusion also has the same procedure for doing facial treatments as that of HydraFacial. The same technology is used for Dermalinfusion that we use for HydraFacial treatment. The treatment involves the same 3 steps; cleanse, exfoliate, and deliver serum into the skin. However, unlike HydraFacial, after Dermalinfusion treatment many people suffer from redness and irritation.

3- HydraFacial and Radiofrequency Therapy

Radiofrequency (RF) therapy involves the use of light and heat deep into the skin which increases cellular turnover and produces more collagen. The process helps tighten the skin tissues and keeps the skin surface smooth, and helps treat acne scars. But, RF does not infuse the serums in the skin and may cause redness after each session.

HydraFacial Cost

HydraFacial is more than regular skin treatment we are offering two main packages in HydraFacial which are listed below. To know the cost please visit our HydraFacial service Page.

  • Delux HydraFacial
  • Platinum HydraFacial (Includes a Booster)

The price also depends on where you are taking the HydraFacial services. Of course, the professionals will charge you more than the usual dermatologists or aestheticians. The cost also varies from session to session. The initial sessions are time taking and require effort and concentration so they cost higher than the end sessions.

Like a regular spa facial, the HydraFacial is considered a cosmetic procedure that’s not covered by insurance. You may ask your provider for cost-saving solutions such as monthly discounts via membership packages. The HydraFacial procedure treats the skin within its three steps. You need to consult your dermatologist beforehand that which cosmetic treatment is best suited for your specific concerns. Check our latest hydra facial offers in Dublin
