It works for skin concerns such as acne, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and dryness by cleansing and moisturizing your skin with what it needs. Learn more below about hydrafacials and whether or not it is right for you!

What Is A Hydrafacial?

A hydrafacial facial treatment uses a patented device to exfoliate, cleanse, extract, and hydrate the face all in one. It is safe for clients with skin concerns such as dry skin and acne and delivers proven results. The hydrafacial is a facial treatment with 4 in 1. It hydrates and removes dead skin, dirt, and other impurities in the face. It starts by cleansing and exfoliating, then offers a chemical peel, a vacuum extraction to eliminate dirt and debris, and provides extremely hydrating properties to the skin. This all-in-one wand and patented machine target many common beauty issues, including wrinkles, acne, thin skin, large pores, dry aging skin, and more. 

How Does A Hydrafacial Work?

Below are the steps of hydrafacials 4 in 1 patented machine. These steps combined leave clients’ skin feeling smoother and more beautiful. 

Cleanse & Exfoliate

The first step in a hydrafacial treatment is the cleansing and exfoliating process. The aesthetician will use the hydrafacial wand to gently cleanse and exfoliate the skin removing any sweat, makeup, or other impurities on the surface of your face. They will gently exfoliate the skin as they cleanse to remove dead skin cells and sebum (oil from the glands) while opening up your pores gently. 

Chemical Peel

Next is the chemical peel part of the treatment. The aesthetician will change the wand’s tip to a gentle chemical peel. This chemical peel is not irritating and painful as other chemical peel treatments clients may be used to. Your skin will not be burning or left red for hours or more after your hydrafacial treatment. This chemical peel uses non-irritating glycolic and salicylic acids, which are more gentle on the skin and provide a more effective peel than traditional peels. This peel is intended to loosen your pores and lift any debris from the skin. 


After the peel comes to the extraction step, after your face has been cleansed, peeled, and lifted from debris, the extraction tip will be added to the hydrafacial wand. This step is similar to a vacuum, which sucks out the remainder of dirt and impurities and removes blackheads from your face. This vacuum provides strong suction but is painless to the client. This is a satisfying step in the hydrafacial as you can feel relief knowing your face is getting sucked out of all the gross stuff to look fresh, clean, and hydrated. 


The last step in the hydrafacial process is to hydrate. The aesthetician will apply the hydrafacial wand to soothe the skin with a hydrating serum. This serum includes peptides and other natural and beneficial ingredients to rejuvenate and hydrate the skin. After your skin is hydrated and your face is smooth and glowing, the aesthetician may provide additional treatment, such as using light therapy for wrinkles and anti-aging. Hydrafacials are an excellent choice for various clients because they are safe, gentle, and effective for all skin types.
