Interested to learn more of what are the benefits that are offered to your skin? Well, keep reading this post to find out how much your skin can benefit from this professional treatment!
Moisturising as it’s already known, is the foundation of a healthy and radiant skin. Irritation and dryness of the skin have been shown to be one of the main causes that aggravate the signs of ageing. Hydrafacial is a moisturising and non-irritating treatment, that removes dead skin cells, cleanses clogged skin pores by removing impurities, while at the same time applying moisturising serums to the skin. The treatment is soothing, refreshing, and with immediate results, as you will notice visible improvement in skin quality and radiant skin after a single treatment. The best news is that these smooth effects and hydration believe it or not can last 5 to 7 days or even longer. This modern treatment achieves hydra dermabrasion, which is performed through the use of the activities offered by antioxidants, peptides, vitamins, and hyaluronic acid, ensuring a deeper hydration of the skin. At the same time, the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face is improved, the blocked pores are cleansed and the balance is restored in oily or acne-prone skin.
In a few words, it’s a facial that offers you deep cleansing, rejuvenation and nourishes the face in-depth. Another interesting fact is that published clinical trials by top US doctors have shown that Hydrafacial works better than any other skin rejuvenation treatment.
To explain more through a 4 in 1 technology system, it ensures a deeper cleansing and exfoliation, correction of skin imperfections, and a deeper penetration of hydrating factors and other active ingredients. You don’t need to worry if you either have dry or oily skin, because the appropriate combination of serums in this system makes this type of facial, suitable for all skin types and all ages (even in younger people), in both men and women. It takes place all months of the year and it doesn’t require recovery time. In a less scientific term, you might hear hydrafacial to be called the Red Carpet Treatment, as it is the treatment preferred by Hollywood stars just before they go out on the red carpet. I know what you might be thinking now, why not look like one of them, right? The fact that it can be done at the last minute without requiring recovery time, pushes many celebrities to prefer it just before a major appearance, subjecting to give their face a refreshing and pleasant cleansing process that gives the skin a deep glow and hydration. You must be aware though that this is a professional treatment, performed only by specialised therapists, that is why a consultation and discussion about any skin concerns is required in advance. It’s also worth noting that Hydrafacial treatment can be combined with other treatments as well such as micro-needling or laser. The process and protocols of Hydrafacial treatment may vary, depending on everyone’s skin concerns such as acne, ageing or pigmented spots and lasts between 30 to 60 minutes, offering obvious and painless results, with zero recovery time.
An indicative of the substantial change that it offers to the skin can be considered by the photos that have been taken before and after the treatment, or just simply by looking in the mirror at the end to notice the massive difference.To dive into the treatment more, we need to analyse a little bit more each of the four main stages, that is divided into. Starting with cleansing and exfoliating, then the chemical peeling, followed by extraction, ending with a marvellous hydration and antioxidant therapy.
Let’s see them closely, shall we?
Stage 1 -Deep cleanse and exfoliation - During this stage, a deep cleansing is initially performed, where the dead cells are removed from the surface of the skin, while at the same time it is properly prepared for the next stages.
Stage 2 - Acid peel - A mixture of glycolic and salicylic acid is injected into the skin, which has the ability to whiten and smooth the skin, as well as helping impurities and residues from the pores to come out being ready for the next stage which is their extraction.
Stage 3 - Extraction - A special tip it’s used in this stage, which applies negative pressure and at the same time with the infusion of water, they clean the skin in-depth, removing the excess sebum from the pores as well as the dead cells from the skin.
Stage 4 - HydrationIn this last stage, a serum is injected, which is enriched with hyaluronic acid, vitamins, antioxidants, and peptides, which will offer both deep hydration and antioxidant protection.
In addition, there are two more steps that are included with this facial. Are you aware of the lymphatic system that flows in our body and carries all these “bad” toxins? Just imagine that 33% of the lymphatic system is in our face, which makes it an important fact to focus on, don’t you think? Thus, the lymphatic drainage step starts prior to your hydrafacial treatment and targets to detox your skin before it accepts the rest of the treatment with the action of specific serums. Within this step can be achieved an improved circulation in the body’s fluids, restore skin’s hydration and help to minimise fine lines and wrinkles through the natural regulation of the body that occurs the moment of this process. Also don’t forget to mention that it’s a stress reducer and a sinus reliever, how amazing is that?
The last step that you are going to experience in your hydrafacial treatment is the led therapy. The blue led light helps to improve the appearance of oily or congested skin and the red and infra-red light helps calm the skin, but also improves the appearance of signs of ageing by stimulating the production of collagen as well. This step is the perfect end for your treatment. To note here that the hydrafacial doesn’t treat the eyes and lip area, but don’t worry there is an upgrade with targeting serums for these specific sensitive areas, that you can add or just have them as a separate treatment. Hydrafacial treatment can also be applied to the body area. It deeply cleanses the pores, removes excess oil and at the same time offers hydration and protection. That makes it ideal for skin reconstruction.To sum up, with just a single treatment of hydrafacial you will receive substantial and obvious benefits for the skin of your face, which appear immediately and without any discomfort.
The main benefits that you gain are a nice face peeling, deep hydration and rejuvenation of the skin, improved skin elasticity and skin colour, and increased blood flow to skin’s surface, and of course a correction of any imperfections of the epidermis such as spots and fine lines and wrinkles. Hydrafacial is one of the most "sought after" treatments, that you need to try once in your lifetime because it combines skin health with radiance and natural beauty! Those who were interested in trying Hydrafacial became its fanatical supporters and put it in the top and most modern non-invasive face treatments with results visible at the same time as the application!
