What Is a HydraFacial?
This skincare treatment has quickly become one of the most popular treatments of all time. It’s so popular that somewhere in the world, this skin treatment is being performed every 15 seconds! So what is this treatment, and what can it do for your skin?
This treatment is done using a patented HydraFacial machine, and one reason this treatment is so wildly popular is that it’s a safe and effective way to help almost all skin issues.
It makes your skin look smoother and brighter; it can get rid of age spots or brown spots. It can help to reduce clogged and oily skin and treat enlarged pores. It can help improve your skin’s elasticity and firmness. It can reduce an uneven or dull skin tone as well as uneven skin texture. One of the best things about this treatment is that it can reduce wrinkles and fine lines!
What Makes It So Popular?
It’s pretty obvious why so many people choose to invest in this treatment, because it works for so many different skin conditions. But what else has helped this new type of facial achieve the booming popularity it has?
First of all, the results are very consistent. It will always give great results. Why? Because this kind of skin treatment is far less dependent on the skill of the technician performing it. Unlike other skin treatments that require a very skilled technician, this type of facial is done by a patented medical machine, so it gives great results, every time.
No Side Effects
Generally when receiving a facial, extractions can be tricky. You might even skip the extraction portion of your facial out of fear that you’ll experience redness or zits the next day. Not to mention that the process itself can be very painful. But with a HydraFacial, none of these terrible side effects apply. The extractions are done without the pain and without irritating your skin.
Another reason this treatment is so phenomenal is that it can be customized by your technician to give you exactly what you need. The esthetician can choose from different strength acid peels based on your skin type, past experiences with peels, and the outcome that you’re looking for. Elements of the medical machine can even be customized, such as suction power.
How Does It Work?
Now that we know why this skin treatment is so effective and popular, let’s dive a little deeper into what the treatment entails.
The HydraFacial machine is attached to a handheld device that uses different tips to deliver, and then vacuum up, various skincare serums. The tips use a spiral design that, when used with the vacuum technology, creates a vortex effect that easily dislodges and gets rid of dirt, oils, and other impurities that might be clogging your pores.
Step One: Vortex Cleansing
The first step in the process is to cleanse the pores. Using the wand, the esthetician gently cleanses the skin and exfoliates the outer most layer, called the epidermis. The epidermis contains lots of dead skin cells that can clog your pores, so removing them allows the technician to access the dirt and oil in your pores.
Removing the dead skin cells also allows your skin to reflect more light, which leads to a brighter and healthier appearance.
During this step, the esthetician will release a serum called Activ4 into your skin. This serum is a combination of exfoliating lactic acid and glucosamine HCI, along with antioxidant-rich algae, which works to soften and condition the skin.
Step Two: Acid Peel
The next step in the skin treatment involves an acid peel, but it isn’t as harsh on your skin as it sounds. The esthetician uses a non-irritant mix of salicylic and glycolic acids. These acids help loosen dirt and other debris that are deep within your pores and that you can’t reach with normal washing.
During this step, the esthetician can choose to use two different tips on the vortex wand, and one is more aggressive than the other. And, depending on your skin needs and past experiences, three different levels of glycolic and salicylic acid can be used. The esthetician will discuss your skin needs with you to help determine which tip and solution would be best.
Step Three: Vortex Extraction
During the third step in this skin treatment, a strong vacuum is used to suction and remove blackheads and other impurities from your pores. At this point in the treatment, a different tip is used on the handheld device to deliver Beta-HD to your skin, which works to soften the sebum so it is able to be vacuumed out of your pores.
At the same time, honey extract and spiraea ulmaria flower extract are delivered to your skin. The honey extract hydrates and works as an antibiotic, while the spiraea ulmaria calms and soothes your skin.
Step Four: Vortex Fusion
The last step works to bring the effects of the whole treatment together. The vortex delivers a formula that contains potent peptides, such as copper, magnesium, zinc, and hyaluronic acid, into the skin to detoxify, rejuvenate, and restore the skin.
The hyaluronic acid works to attract water to the skin to keep it hydrated and plump. This formula also includes arnica flower extract to calm and soothe the skin and red algae that works to brighten the skin. It also includes antioxidants such as horse chestnut seed and green tea extracts.
Don’t Forget the Boosters
The core part of the skin treatment might be finished, but your skin isn’t. You can customize your treatment even more by choosing from available super serums developed by the HydraFacial team to address specific skin issues.
Brightalive Booster Serum
This serum is designed to brighten your overall skin tone and get rid of any discoloration. It helps to reduce the appearance of brown spots as well as prevent new pigmentation formation. It uses a unique blend of skin brighteners and glycerin, which replenishes and restores hydration.
Growth Factor Boost
This patented serum is designed to restore your skin health, which helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Growth factors are naturally occurring proteins that regulate cellular growth and help to maintain healthy skin structure and function. This serum helps keep your skin tight and looking young.
This proprietary formula helps to address skin tone evenness, texture, and fine lines. It includes skin conditioning peptides that help to hydrate, soothe, and firm up your skin.
This boost is formulated to target dark spots and sun damage. It’s clinically proven to leave your skin with a more even, not to mention glowing, complexion.
It includes alpha-arbutin, which comes from bearberry extract, and which brightens the appearance of dark spots. It also includes Vitamin C for even more brightness.
Add a Lymphatic Facial
After receiving the added boosters you’d like, you can also add on a lymphatic drainage facial to see even more results.
Your lymphatic system is comprised of a network of hundreds of lymph nodes throughout your body. It drains fluid and removes bodily waste from your system to keep you healthy. When there is any sort of obstruction in your lymphatic system, fluid can start to build up, which is where lymphatic drainage comes in.
Lymphatic drainage is a specialized kind of massage therapy that originally was used to treat lymphedema, a condition with chronic swelling. However, lymphatic drainage has become a staple in facials in the last decade. It’s a great addition to your beauty regimen because it fights against a puffy, dull, complexion and skin irritation.
How Does It Work?
Lymphatic drainage works to accelerate the transportation of lymphatic fluids, helping your body to function better overall. When done in a facial massage, it gives what is considered to be a non-surgical facelift.
The esthetician applies light pressure and gentle movements that include stroking, tapping, rubbing, and pushing. Then, they use flat hands, along with all their fingers, to gently stretch your skin in the direction of the lymphatic flow to help your lymphatic system drain. It leaves your skin looking plump and refreshed.
Is This Treatment Right for You?
Choosing the right skin treatment can feel overwhelming, especially if you haven’t gotten many skin treatments before. There are so many to choose from, and it seems like there are a whole host of people online willing to vouch for each one.

This treatment is extremely customizable. Your esthetician will work with you to determine the best strength of different solutions for your skin, as well as the strength of the suction power used.
