What is HydraFacial?

The HydraFacial MD (Microdermabrasion)

HydraFacial is a non-invasive facial treatment technology that combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration, and antioxidant protection into a single procedure using the HydraFacial machine.

HydraFacial MD combines the benefits of a microdermabrasion-like treatment and a Micropeel, infusing serums for a comprehensive and luxurious experience.

Its unique ability to physically and chemically exfoliate the skin while providing immediate moisturization sets it apart from other resurfacing treatments.

How does HydraFacial Works and What is It Do to Your Face?

HydraFacial MD utilizes a patented four-in-one vertex technology system known as the in-one vortex technology system. This system combines four steps into one treatment: vortex cleansing, hydro peel exfoliation, vortex extraction, and vortex fusion. These steps address various skin concerns and are effective for all skin types.

4 in 1 vortex

The HydraFacial MD procedure delivers immediate and long-lasting results without downtime or discomfort. It achieves this through Hydra peel tips, which have a unique spiral design and powerful hermetic suction.

Vortex Tips

The Hydra peel tips enable non-invasive skin resurfacing and temporary pore opening, allowing for efficient cleansing, exfoliation, and extraction of impurities without harming the skin. Additionally, during the process, proprietary serums are delivered to the skin.

The HydraFacial Four-Step Process

HydraFacial First Step

Vortex Cleansing and Hydra peel

The first step of the HydraFacial MD treatment involves vortex cleansing and Hydra peel exfoliation. This step gently cleanses the skin and removes dead skin cells and sebum from the stratum Corneum layer. As a result, the skin reflects more light, giving it a brighter and healthier appearance.

HydraFacial Second Steps

Deep Pore Cleansing with Salicylic and Glycolic Acids

The second step utilizes a non-irritating and effective blend of salicylic and glycolic acids. This mixture helps to loosen deep pore debris and dirt, potentially reducing the formation of acne-related pustules.

Third Steps

Painless Vortex Extraction for Blackhead and Impurity Removal

In the third step, the painless vortex extraction process utilizes a powerful vacuum suction to eliminate blackheads and other impurities automatically.

Fourth Steps

Vortex Fusion for Skin Rejuvenation and Restoration

Finally, in the fourth step of the HydraFacial MD procedure, vortex fusion delivers a pro-antioxidant formula enriched with potent peptides and hyaluronic acid into the skin. This step promotes detoxification, rejuvenation, and restoring a healthy skin structure and function.

Is HydraFacial MD Safe?

The HydraFacial MD is a safe skincare treatment for the following reasons:

  1. Non-invasive: The HydraFacial MD is a non-invasive procedure that does not involve any surgical incisions or aggressive methods. It uses a unique Vortex-Fusion technology that gently exfoliates, cleanses, and hydrates the skin without causing significant trauma or downtime.
  2. Customizable treatment: The procedure can suit individual skin types and concerns. HydraFacial can address various skin issues, including fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, congested pores, and uneven texture. The flexibility in adjusting the treatment parameters allows for a personalized experience that targets specific concerns while maintaining overall skin health.
  3. Gentle exfoliation: The exfoliation step in the HydraFacial involves a gentle and controlled removal of dead skin cells, dirt, and debris. It uses a vortex suction mechanism combined with a specially designed tip to dislodge impurities without causing irritation or damage to the skin surface, making it safe for sensitive skin types.
  4. Hydration and nourishment: The HydraFacial includes a unique step called “HydroPeel,” which delivers a blend of hydrating and nourishing serums to the skin. These serums contain antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid, which help to replenish and revitalize the skin, promoting a healthy and youthful appearance.
  5. No downtime: The HydraFacial MD typically involves little to no downtime. After the treatment, most individuals can resume their daily activities immediately, as there is usually no significant redness, swelling, or discomfort associated with the procedure.

It is important to consult with a skincare professional or dermatologist to assess your specific needs and determine if the HydraFacial MD is suitable for you.
