Hydrodermabrasion is one of the most sought-after facials of 2023. The resurgence in popularity is for good reason: Hydrodermabrasion is a great facial treatment to leave your skin soft, smooth, and ultra-hydrated. But what is hydradermabrasion, how does it work, and why should you seek a hydra dermabrasion facial? We have compiled all the basics of hydradermabrasion to help guide you toward your next facial.
What is Hydradermabrasion?
Hydradermabrasion is a minimally invasive facial skin procedure, used to exfoliate and hydrate your skin. It is a water and active serum treatment that gently removes dead skin cells and exfoliates the top layers of the skin. This treatment is customizable, to suit your skin and its specific needs. Hydradermabrasion combines pressurized water, oxygen, and serums to give your face a real hydration boost!
How Does it Work?
Hydradermabrasion is a three-step process that uses a diamond-tip microdermabrasion pen to lightly buff the skin while infusing hydration into the skin. Hydradermabrasion is gentler than both dermabrasion and microdermabrasion and is the least invasive of the three procedures. The hydrating solution used is both soothing and cooling.
Step one uses gentle suction to lift the skin and lightly buff it with the diamond tip pen. The vacuum gently pulls the skin into the wand to open pores, and remove sebum and other impurities. At the same time, a moisture solution is applied to the skin. The moisture solution is customized to the skin to provide your skin with exactly what it needs for maximum health and vitality.
Step two is Oxygen Mesotherapy. This step uses an oxygen attachment and delivers active ingredients from an ampule specifically chosen for your unique skin type. A continuous pressure stream of 90-95% pure oxygen is delivered to the skin. Oxygen is anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial, and stimulates healing and collagen growth.
Step three is the serum penetration portion of the treatment. Special application tips are used to penetrate serums deep into the skin. The active ingredients in the serums are specially tailored to address your skin's unique needs. The results are softer, plumper, and more hydrated skin.
Benefits of Hydradermabrasion
A hydradermabrasion facial provides instant hydration and rejuvenation. Dead skin cells and impurities are removed. Hydradermabrasion can improve signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles, and even more advanced signs of aging, to give you younger-looking skin. Hydradermabrasion can minimize the appearance of sun damage, discoloration, and brown spots.
Hydradermabrasion exfoliates dry skin but is gentle enough to avoid stripping your skin of the necessary oils that make up your skin's protective coating. It improves skin firmness, brightness, and elasticity. Hydradermabrasion improves skin tone and texture.
Hydradermabrasion is an excellent choice for most skin types. It’s gentle on skin and works well for sensitive or tender skin. Hydradermabrasion may be helpful for those with acne or stubborn blackheads and clogged pores. It can also improve acne scarring. Hydradermabrasion is great for those with dry skin, aging skin, congested skin and even with oily skin.
How Often Should You Receive Hydradermabrasion Treatments?
Hydradermabrasion treatments can be scheduled as often as every two weeks until optimal results are reached. After that, you can return every 4-6 weeks to help maintain the results. You may experience slight redness or sweeping on your skin for a very short period of time. Very little aftercare is required after receiving this treatment, so you can leave our salon with fresh, hydrated skin. We know you will love the look and feel of your skin after receiving a hydradermabrasion facial!
