After a Hydrafacial, you notice smoother, more radiant skin, with a more even skin tone. The results are noticeable immediately, without any visible signs of irritation. During the Hydrafacial you may feel just very light pressure from the wand during the procedure however unlike other cosmetic treatments, the it isn’t supposed to cause pain or redness.
Each Hydrafacial session takes an hour, and no downtime is required. Unlike with harsher procedures like chemical peels, you can resume your normal activities right away.
While you shouldn’t experience any redness or peeling after your session, it’s still best to avoid exfoliating treatments and/or products like acids, or retinol, for the first couple of days after a hydrafacial.
Recommendations for a Hydrafacial
The frequency of Hydrafacial sessions depends on your skin type. However I would recommend repeating the treatment every 3-5 weeks for best results.
Hydrafacial vs. Microdermabrasion
Like a Hydrafacial, microdermabrasion exfoliates your skin. The key difference is that this type of exfoliation using small crystals is best suited for fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and acne scars. Microdermabrasion also doesn’t use hydrogen water that havy anti oxidant properties;.
