What Is a HydraFacial? How It Works, Benefits, and Risks

Most people would agree that they are interested in clear, youthful, and glowing skin. In the 21st-century, the HydraFacial has become the go-to form of facial, with some estimates showing a HydraFacial takes place somewhere in the world every 15 seconds. No matter how many of these facials take place each year, it is clear the use of water as a form of microdermabrasion allows more people with sensitive skin to enjoy the benefits of this form of spa treatment.

How does a HydraFacial Work?

At Zuliani Facial Aesthetics you can enjoy the many benefits of a HydraFacial. A HydraFacial is based on the microdermabrasion technique of exfoliating the top layer of the skin. In its traditional sense, crystals are used at the tip of a microdermabrasion machine to remove dead skin cells and vacuums them into the machine.

In contrast to the harshness of the crystal-tipped head of the microdermabrasion machine, a HydraFacial uses water and suction as a gentle way of removing dead skin cells. The use of a HydraFacial machine can cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturize the skin of the individual with various products infused into the skin by the therapist administering the facial.

The Benefits of HydraFacial

Perhaps the most important benefit the HydraFacial treatment is the fact it can be enjoyed by people with almost any skin type. This is different from the use of a traditional crystal-tipped microdermabrasion machine where those with acne and some skin conditions were made worse by that type of machine.  A HydraFacial is a form of skin treatment that is gentle, sensitive skin friendly, and allows more people to enjoy radiant skin in a more simple and effective way.  Perhaps the most important benefit of the HydraFacial is the procedure’s consistently effective results.

Few Side Effects

Unlike many other forms of facials and chemical peels, there is very little chance of side effects to be seen with the use of the HydraFacial when administered by an experienced aesthetician. There are a few people who should not use the HydraFacial technique, including those who have an active rash, skin condition, or a sunburn.  With little risk of any side effects and its instant results, it is no wonder the HydraFacial has become a favorite treatment in the medical spa world.
