WHY I AM OBSESSED WITH HYDRAFACIALS (AND WHY YOU SHOULD BE TOO)
Our Hydrafacial MD is one of the most popular facial treatments right now at Lemon + Honey Day Spa. I can say in only 30 minutes you’ll have the best skin ever, maybe even the best skin of your entire life and it’s only four steps. As a lover of hydrafacial, I can tell you that I have the best skin of my life after just one hydrafacial treatment. By far it is our Esthetician’s favorite skincare treatment to perform on each other.
Did you know a hydrafacial is performed every 15 seconds around the world. That is why this treatment has become the go-to facial for celebs, your co-worker, and best friend. Why? Because it targets many of the most common skincare concerns like dryness and signs of aging with little to no down time.
If you haven’t heard of hydrafacial before, it has patented vortex tips combined with medical-grade resurfacing that clears your pores out and hydrates your skin. The four-step treatment includes cleansing, exfoliating, extracting, and hydrating. The serums are infused into your skin with the pen-like device that is attached to a screen and all kinds of gadgets and gizmos. It’s a computer treatment for your face. Not to worry, my team and myself are professionally trained in how to use it and it actually feels amazing!
Watching the hydrafacial machine remove dead skin cells with its suction, and simultaneously vortex infuses the skin with hydrating serums is mesmerizing. Depending on your skincare concerns, the serums have peptides and antioxidant properties that’ll leave your skin appearing picture perfect.
What’s included in a hydrafacial and what are the details of the full treatment experience? Let’s get into the details so you can know what to expect prior to your treatment. Full disclosure, there are a lot of fakes out there, so first things first make sure your shop has the trademarked hydrafacial and not some imitation.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE TREATMENT?
The HydraFacial treatment starts with cleansing by removing the dead skin cells and excess sebum from the skin. Next up is exfoliation, where salicylic and glycolic acids are blended together in a special vial and are applied to the skin to loosen dead skin and break up dirt and oil that’s clogging pores. Then, the extraction tip is used to essentially vacuum out blackheads, dirt, oil, and impurities. After your pores have been sucked clean, hydrated, plumped, then nourishing serums are infused deep into the skin.
WHAT DOES THE TREATMENT DO FOR YOUR SKIN?
Many ask but what’s the catch? There is none…. The HydraFacial’s many benefits include a plump hydrated skin tone, freshly exfoliated, increased circulation that will brighten your skin and remove the impurities to help clear your complexion. It can also improve signs of aging, prevent aging and increase the health of your overall skin. This treatment reduces fine lines and wrinkles, increases firmness, evens tone, texture, and brown spots, plus reduces enlarged pores.
WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS?
HydraFacial has a strict no-torture policy. While it has powerful active ingredients and a one of a kind delivery system, during the treatment you will feel completely comfortable. This machine turns normally painful extractions into a minimal inconvenience. The Hydrafacial truly is a soothing, good feeling experience. The best part is that at the end, you can actually see all that was removed in the waste collection container. We call pictures of this a #Gunkie. Boy is it fun to look at our gunk that was removed from our faces.
HOW SOON DO I SEE THE RESULTS OF A HYDRAFACIAL?
A Hydrafacial will deliver instant results. No filter. No makeup. Take home products will also help to extend the results for even longer. For hard to fix concerns like fine lines, deep lines, and hyperpigmentation a treatment series is recommended.
WHO SHOULD GET THE HYDRAFACIAL?
You and you and even You! Some of the biggest fans for this treatment are our sensitive skin clients because it is suitable for almost any age and skin type — save for a few exceptions. For Pregnant or nursing women we make alterations to the treatment. It’s not recommended for people who use strong retinols or are under a doctors care for various medical conditions where medication or treatment can cause thinning of the skin or the blood to not clot.
This treatment is actually nice for teenagers with acne, or husbands with noses full of blackheads or me who wants to avoid wrinkles, and hyper-pigmentation. It’s even for clients with heavy sun damage and great addition to support fillers, botox and other medical skin treatments. Although beneficial to many skin conditions it is not recommended for those with active rashes or sunburns.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I GET A HYDRAFACIAL?
Although your skin looks dewy and glowy a lot longer than just your run of the mill facial, the zero downtime and non-invasive factors allow you the ability to get hydrafacial treatments weekly, if you can afford the luxury! As you may have heard, the treatment is a favorite among celebrities who chain smoke. Chain smoker celebs are known to get this treatment weekly. If you’re looking for a casual pick me up monthly or bi-monthly will do just fine. And if a monthly occurrence is not in the budget a simple birthday treat to yourself can be an indulgence your skin will thank you for.
