How Does a HydraFacial Work Exactly?
The HydraFacial is similar to another treatment called microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion uses a “mildly abrasive instrument to gently sand your skin, removing the thicker, uneven outer layer,” according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
After skin is exfoliated, serums are infused into the skin.
There are three steps in the HydraFacial treatment, according to the company. There is no downtime — a common word for recovery time in dermatology — and the entire treatment can be done in as little as 30 minutes.
Can you customize your treatment?
Your skincare professional will work with you to understand your unique skin concerns and recommend a personalized treatment for you. An aesthetician can use the exfoliator at varying intensities, and leave acids on the face for differing durations.
