An important step in any effective skincare treatment involves resurfacing the top layer of skin. One commonly known resurfacing procedure, microdermabrasion, uses micro-crystals to mechanically exfoliate the skin. While this method is very effective, it can also be irritating for acne-prone or sensitive skin types.
To address these concerns, HydraFacial was born, using water as the exfoliating medium. This multi-step treatment uses a patented device to cleanse, exfoliate, and extract dead skin cells while bathing the skin in serums packed with rich hydrating ingredients, antioxidants, and peptides.
HydraFacials can be performed on all skin types, including very sensitive skin. What is unique about this treatment is that it is highly customizable. Your skincare professional will work with you to understand your unique skin concerns, and will recommend a personalized treatment for you. It should be noted, however, that the HydraFacial is on the gentler side of the facial treatment spectrum. Clients requiring deeper resurfacing may achieve greater results from more intense treatments such as medical grade peels or laser treatments.
Even though HydraFacials are relatively gentle, there are certain skin concerns such as chronic rosacea and severe acne that preclude receiving any treatment. As always, it is best to consult with one of our skincare professionals to discuss any conditions or allergies prior to booking a session. HydraFacials should also be avoided by individuals with a contact allergy to shellfish, as it is an ingredient found in one of the primary steps of the treatment.
A HydraFacial is a great option for anyone desiring smoother, deeply hydrated skin with a quick turnaround. It is generally recommended to receive a Hydrafacial once a month. As there is no downtime associated with the treatment, it can be administered anytime during the year.
