HydraFacial Treatment

Hydrafacial is an advanced non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatment that performs exfoliation, cleansing, extraction, and hydration on the skin using a patented device called Hydrafacial MD Tower. This system is known for its “vortex swirling action” that delivers hydration and removes dead skin cells, debris, and other impurities from the facial skin. The specialized three-step action of this system helps unlock a radiant, youthful facial appearance.

What Does Hydrafacial Treat?

Hydrafacial involves deep exfoliation to rejuvenate the skin and treat or prevent the following issues:

  • Acne: Cleansing and exfoliation involved in Hydrafacial help remove debris and acne-causing bacteria from facial skin pores.
  • Rosacea: The mild skin peeling in Hydrafacial may help improve the appearance of rosacea discoloration.
  • Fine lines and wrinkles: From exfoliation to extraction to supplying serums to the skin, all Hydrafacial steps promote collagen production, which helps improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Skin texture problems: Exfoliation helps remove dead and damaged cells from the facial skin, improving its texture.

What Is Involved In Hydrafacial Treatment Procedure?

Hydrafacial is an advanced form of microdermabrasion, a mildly abrasive treatment that exfoliates your skin using a sanding or sand blasting-like action. However, it also involves hydrating the skin by infusing specialized serums into it.

Hydrafacial can be performed in 30-40 minutes, typically involving three steps.

  • Cleanse and peel: This step mainly involves resurfacing, during which skin exfoliation is performed using a special Hydrafacial tip. While resurfacing the skin, this tip creates a fluid vortex with the help of its particular design. This vortex action dislodges dead skin cells, debris, and other impurities to cleanse facial skin.
  • Extract and hydrate: This step involves using a Hydrafacial tip, usually called the “Vortex-Extraction nozzle.” The specific design of this nozzle creates a vacuum to remove dirt, oil, blackheads, and other impurities from the pores of facial skin. At the same time, intense moisturizers are applied to the treatment area, hydrating the skin.
  • Infuse and Protect: This final step involves infusing the facial skin with serums or boosters that help you achieve your rejuvenation goals, which may be improving the skin texture, reducing fine lines or wrinkles, or making the skin more radiant. The most commonly used serums in this step generally contain antioxidants or peptides, hyaluronic acid, or growth factors to stimulate collagen production. These solutions increase cell turnover and improve the elasticity and youthfulness of the skin.

Who Is The Ideal Candidate For Hydrafacial Treatment?

Anyone who wants to rejuvenate their facial skin without chemical peels, lasers, and surgery may be a candidate for Hydrafacial. This technique suits most skin types and is versatile enough to meet both men’s and women’s needs. It can also help with facial rejuvenation regardless of the skin tone.

That being said, there may still be a few contraindications. Hydrafacial may not be recommended for the individuals:

  • Who are pregnant
  • With hypersensitive skin
  • With active skin infections
  • With a higher risk of allergies

So, as a rule of thumb, it is always necessary to speak to a healthcare provider or doctor before getting Hydrafacial.

How to prepare for Hydrafacial?

The following steps can help you get well-prepared for your Hydrafacial:

  • Stop using products that contain Isotretinoin for at least six months. If it is not possible for any reason, speak to your dermatologist.
  • Avoid skin treatments like derma fillers, moderate or deep chemical peels, and lasers for at least 2 weeks.
  • Do not get Botox injections one week before treatment.
  • Avoid sun exposure and tanning beds for three days or a period specified by the doctor before the treatment. Use high-SPF sunscreen when going out.
  • Avoid waxing and depilating two days before the treatment.
  • Do not exfoliate two days before the treatment.

What To Expect After Hydrafacial Treatment?

Hydrafacial treatment leads to little to no recovery and downtime. However, some patients may experience redness and the sensation of tightened skin for a few hours. Additionally, your doctor may advise you to avoid makeup and strenuous physical activities for 1-2 days after the treatment.

What Are The Results Of Hydrafacial Treatment?

In most cases, the results of hydrafacial are noticeable almost instantly without causing significant irritation. You may have smoother, more radiant facial skin when the treatment is complete. This treatment may also help overcome unevenness of your skin tone.

How Often Should I Get Hydrafacial?

Hydrafacial is designed to provide quicker results, but these results only last for a while. To maintain a radiant and rejuvenated facial appearance for the long term, aestheticians worldwide usually recommend a Hydrafacial session every four to six weeks.

Is Hydrafacial Treatment Painful?

During the Hydrafacial procedure, you may experience varying sensations depending on the type of nozzle used and the step performed. However, the overall process is usually entirely pain-free. You may also experience slight twitching due to muscle contractions immediately after the treatment, but it doesn’t involve pain or discomfort.

Hydrafacial Or Microdermabrasion: Which One Is Better?

Hydrafacial is designed to perform deeper, more profound exfoliation than microdermabrasion and can target specific problems like acne. It also involves suctioning the gunk out of pores and infusing the skin with rejuvenating compounds.

Microdermabrasion, on the other hand, involves manual sanding or sand blasting-like actions to exfoliate the skin. This treatment can effectively reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

When comparing, Hydrafacial is generally considered more effective than microdermabrasion. However, the choice between both procedures depends on the specific treatment goals.

I Have Sensitive Skin. Can I Still Have A Hydrafacial?

Hydrafacial treatments are generally considered safe for sensitive skin types that might not tolerate chemical peels or other more intense exfoliation and resurfacing treatments. However, it is always advisable to consult with your skincare specialist or doctor before undergoing a Hydrafacial to ensure you are an appropriate candidate for the treatment.

Can Hydrafacial Reduce Acne?

Hydrafacial can be a broader treatment strategy but not a standalone way to reduce acne. It involves exfoliation and hydration, which can help unclog pores of dirt and acne-causing bacteria. Hydrafacial also involves applying salicylic and glycolic acid, two well-known peeling agents, to reduce the appearance of oiliness on the skin.

In simple words, Hydrafacial can assist in managing the condition of acne-prone skin and potentially reduce the risk of breakouts.

What Is Hydraglow, And How Does It Differ From Hydrafacial?

Hydraglow is a non-invasive facial treatment that, like Hydrafacial, uses exfoliation, extraction, and hydration to improve skin appearance. It combines hydradermabrasion, chemical peeling, extraction, and painless skin infusion with peptides, hyaluronic acid, and antioxidants.

However, Hydraglow is a more simplified treatment. Instead of Hydrafacial’s advanced Vortex-assisted extraction (VAE), which allows for deeper cleansing, Hydraglow uses more conventional vacuum extraction to remove impurities from the skin. The skincare provided by Hydraglow is more standard in nature compared to Hydrafacial’s comprehensive facial rejuvenation.

What Is The Cost Of Hydrafacial Treatment?

The cost of Hydrafacial treatment in Dubai generally starts from around AED 800. The exact price of the procedure may, however, vary from person to person, depending on several factors, such as:

  • The level of aesthetic enhancement required
  • The type of solution the skin is infused with
  • The practitioner’s expertise
  • The geographic location and reputation of the clinic, spa, or treatment facility
