Contrary to the name, the HydraFacial is designed to do more than solely hydrate the skin. The Hydrafacial MD is a non-invasive facial treatment that gives the exfoliation benefits of a chemical peel, without the normal lengthy downtime associated with one. The HydraFacial treatment is specifically used to deeply exfoliate the skin by targeting clogged pores and removing impurities such as blackheads and whiteheads, while decreasing pore size and acne causing breakouts. The HydraFacial before and after reviews show a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, a stimulated production of collagen, and a reduced appearance of hyperpigmentation. “The treatment has become extremely popular because it has no downtime and can improve skin tone, hydration, and radiance in as little as thirty minutes,” Esthetician Kaitlin Pierson of Revive Med Spa in San Diego, California says.
There are three steps in a HydraFacial, starting with the cleanse and peel, where a new layer of skin is uncovered through exfoliation and a relaxing resurfacing technique. Step two is extract and hydrate. This step removes the “gunk” and impurities from the pores with a painless suction of the HydraFacial wand. The skin is then nourished with hydrating moisturizers. Step three is the fuse and protect phase. Here your skin is saturated with antioxidants, growth factors and peptides to fully maximize the natural glow.
Another HydraFacial benefit boasts brighter skin with zero irritation, (perfect for last minute preparation ahead of big events), and is safe for all skin types ranging from acne prone to sensitive. It’s a dream treatment for those who are looking for a deep clean that won’t lead to inflammation, a side-effect commonly caused from other harsh procedures.
Expect the hydrating effects of the HydraFacial treatment to last up to one week. For the long-term benefits of the treatment, we recommend coming back for maintenance treatments every couple of months to help keep the skin looking its best. It’s also important to drink plenty of water and make sure to use a daily moisturizer (with SPF!). Revive Med Spa offers the HydraFacial at the two locations in San Diego and can help get you red carpet ready in no time!
