The HydraFacial treatment process is a proprietary, three-step type of deep cleaning, rehydrating, and healing. Using special serums that rehydrate, clear, and protect your skin, along with a special suction device that literally pulls dirt out of your pores, the HydraFacial can give you healthier, more even, and less wrinkled skin in 60 minutes or less. It is a great option for Boca Raton residents.
What Is a HydraFacial?
You have likely heard about the benefits of microdermabrasion facials over the years and wondered if they were right for you. You may also have heard about some of the side effects, including pain and redness for a few days afterward.
You want clearer, cleaner skin, but you do not want the effect of sandpaper on your face. If this is the case, the HydraFacial treatment is a great option for you.
A full HydraFacial treatment is a combination of acids — most often, glycolic, beta, lactic, salicylic, and hyaluronic — that are applied gently to your face to reduce discoloration, dehydration, acne, aging effects, and uneven skin. Over three steps, the HydraFacial process literally sucks dirt and grime out of your pores, leaving you with radiant and truly healthy skin.
The Hydrafacial Treatment Process
The HydraFacial treatment process takes between 30 and 60 minutes, depending on the extent of your treatment and how many steps there are. Like microdermabrasion treatments, the HydraFacial deep-cleans each pore in your face, but unlike the microdermabrasion process, your skin is hydrated and relaxed rather than scrubbed.
These are the steps of the HydraFacial process:
- Cleanse + Peel: With a gentle exfoliation and relaxation process, this first step uncovers a new layer of skin and removes dead skin cells, without the abrasiveness associated with typical skin peels.
- Extract + Hydrate: This part uses a patented suction process to fully remove dirt and debris from pores, while moisturizers nourish the skin. If you like pore-cleansing strips, this will satisfy you much more. After dirt is removed, special serums replace antioxidants and other protective nutrients.
- Fuse + Protect: The surface of your skin is saturated, one more time, with antioxidants and peptides to protect your skin’s health and make your cheeks glow.
- Daily Essentials: You might receive a special serum after your treatment called Daily Essentials, which contains many of the same nutrients and hydrating, protective chemicals as the serums in your HydraFacial. This helps maintain your glow for longer.
These steps can be adjusted based on your individual skincare needs. A specialist at Cosmetica can examine your skin and recommend the right facial treatment process for you.
What Are the Benefits of HydraFacial Treatment?
The greatest benefit of the HydraFacial is the deep cleansing, healing process that does not batter, bruise, or hurt your skin. While microdermabrasion treatments are fantastic at healing acne and skin discoloration, the immediate aftereffects can hurt for days. This is because there are manual processes in microdermabrasion facials, while the HydraFacial uses a patented vacuum-like device to remove dirt and dead skin. Then, specially formulated serums heal and improve the health of your skin.
The HydraFacial process is safe for most types of skin, although it is not recommended for people with sunburns, rashes, or rosacea. Additionally, there are few medical studies involving the effects of salicylic acid on pregnant women or their babies, so if you are pregnant, you should ask about other procedures.
A HydraFacial is better for many types and shades of skin too. Chemical peels, for example, can remove dead skin cells and improve the overall health of your skin within a few days after the procedure, but the effects work best on lighter skin tones. The HydraFacial is great for Boca Raton residents with every shade of skin.
Best of all, the HydraFacial treatment does not hurt, and results are immediate. Unlike chemical peels and microdermabrasion, there is no healing time. You walk out of Cosmetica with radiant skin, and you can show it off to your friends the next day. You will want to avoid makeup immediately after the procedure, but you can wear makeup the following day.
How Often Can I Get This Amazing Facial?
Results from a HydraFacial treatment are immediate. After just 60 minutes, you will have a brighter glow and healthier-looking skin. These effects last for about one full week and sometimes longer, if you apply the Daily Essentials serum.
It is recommended that you get no more than one HydraFacial treatment per month. This is the amount of time it takes new skin to grow and begin to shed cells, which can collect in your pores.
Treatments range from $199 to $300, so it is worth considering the timing of your treatments. Many people choose HydraFacial treatments every few months to renew their skin health or pursue this treatment to enhance their skin right before a big event. Or, you can get one per month to significantly reduce wrinkles and age lines on an ongoing basis.
With more than 2 million HydraFacial treatments performed every year, you can rest assured that this process is safe and effective. Contact Cosmetica in Boca Raton to set up a consultation.
