New beauty fads pop up everyday, with some being great for your skin and others actually having little to no impact at all. But one new trend in skincare might be here to stay: hydrafacial treatments. Many have said it works wonders on their skin, and it has already become one of the go-to treatments for several celebrities. Wondering what hydrafacial treatments are all about? Here are a few things you need to know about hydrafacial treatments.
It hydrates while cleaning pores.
Using a four step process, the hydrafacial aims to clear pores and also hydrate skin at the same time. The four steps used to achieve this include cleanings, exfoliating, extracting and then hydrating.
A surprisingly high amount of the population is already using this treatment.
Stats show that every 15 seconds, someone somewhere in the world is getting a hydrafacial treatment. This equates to about 2 million treatments given in one year.
It’s great for all ages and skin complexions.
Whether you’re middle aged hoping to diminish wrinkles or a teen trying to ward off acne, this treatment is beneficial for everyone. It can even be used for treating sun damage and pre-cancerous spots on the skin.
Hydrafacials are in-office treatments.
The hydrafacial is initiated with removing dead skin cells from the skin. This allows a clean palette for a salicylic and glycolic acid mix to be applied to the skin. This will bust up dirt and pore clogging oil. The HydraPeel Tip, which is shaped like a pen, is used to vacuum out blackheads and dirt while hydrating and plumping the skin.
It works wonders for your skin.
The hydrafacial is said to be effective in reducing wrinkles, evening tone and texture, brightening complexion, and reducing pore size.
There are reportedly little to no side effects.
Many fans of the hydrafacial report very minimal side effects, or none at all. This is why the treatment has become so popular. Its also catching on because there is essentially no down time needed post-surgery. Practitioners say that you can begin wearing make up or resuming your regular routine by the next morning.
The results are pretty consistent.
Hydrafacials are now offered in several different businesses, from resorts to local spas, all varying in price and added luxury. The great news is, no matter if you are at a five-star hotel or visiting the esthetician around the corner, the results are typically consistent, and in a great way.
This treatment comes with the highly sought after instant gratification factor.
There aren’t many in-office skin treatments that will yield results in a matter of minutes. But this is the case with hydrafacial. Within 30 minutes or less, patients can expect to see a noticeable improvement with the texture and tone of their skin. It is also known for giving that last minute glow that so many hope to achieve before a big event or a night on the town. This is another major reason you will hear about the biggest celebs utilizing a hydrafacial right before a red carpet premiere.
