What is the Hydrafacial treatment and why should you book in NOW for yours?
It’s been said that somewhere in the world, a HydraFacial Treatment is performed every 15 seconds… That’s two MILLION treatments given globally. If you’re among the very few people who still haven’t heard of the HydraFacial treatment, we’re going to tell you all about it. We want you to know what the buzz is ALL about and why you need to book yourself in for one ASAP.
The HydraFacial treatment is a "medical-grade hydradermabrasion device that carries out a patented three-part regimen — cleansing, exfoliating, and then infusing skin with intensive serums," explains Sameer Bashey, a clinical instructor in dermatology at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles.
HydraFacial has recently teamed up with superbrands like SkinCeuticals and ZO Skin Health — to enhance the benefits and add a bespoke feel to the entire experience.
Results from a HydraFacial are guaranteed. Results for all skin types will show everything from hydration and radiance, to improved firmness and texture… even reductions in oil and pore size!
Allure.com spoke with leading dermatologists to weigh in on precisely what makes the HydraFacial such a phenomenon.
It appeals to nearly all ages, complexions, and concerns
"This is nice for teenagers with acne; adults with pimples, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation; and for older patients with sun damage and even flaky pre-cancerous spots (as part of more serious treatments)," says Ellen Marmur, an associate clinical professor in both the department of dermatology and the department of genetics and genomic research at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City.
The experience and results are super-consistent
You're guaranteed "a high-tech facial that delivers consistent results, because it's not as technician-dependent [as other kinds of facials,] so you can count on it time and time again," says Shereene Idriss, a clinical instructor in dermatology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.
Extractions without side effects
"It's one of the most popular procedures in our office, not only because it combines elements of workhorse treatments, like microdermabrasion and chemical peels, but also because it truly is a relaxing, feel-good experience," says Akhavan. "It's never painful — in fact, patients compare the sensation to a light massage." By combining vortex pressure with a clog-purging solution of salicylic acid, willow bark extract, and anti-inflammatory Tasmanian pepper, "the device suctions gunk from pores — no squeezing or pressing required — and, at the end, you can actually see all that was removed, which people seem to like," says Tresa Acosta, an aesthetician at Marmur Medical in New York City.
Instant gratification in 30 minutes with zero downtime
"HydraFacial hits the sweet spot — it's more than a basic spa facial, but less than a laser treatment," says Marmur. Making it a rare unicorn among no-downtime offerings, its payoff is immediately apparent: "We can quickly improve texture and tone, and even help conditions like acne, without any residual irritation or peeling," Akhavan adds. Even better, everyone we interviewed gushed about the tool’s unparalleled radiance-imparting properties, which is what make it "so highly requested before red-carpet events and weddings — it really delivers that extra glow," says Idriss.
