With a simple but highly effective 3-step approach to skin health, HydraFacial is tried and true to provide glowing results. Our skin is constantly changing and evolving with environmental exposure, lifestyle changes, hormonal fluctuation, and more. HydraFacial treatments change with your skin because it allows personalization at every step for a customized approach to skin treatment and correction.
HydraFacial is a unique treatment that can incorporate lymphatic drainage to detoxify and reduce inflammation, a chemical and physical peel, customized serums, and blue or red LED treatment depending on your skin condition. There is no other treatment that will give you such a comprehensive result with zero downtime all while enjoying a relaxing facial! You have to get it, to truly GET IT!
I’ve talked about HydraFacial treatments and how they work before, but today I want to really focus on how HydraFacial is a treatment that can tackle a number of issues! By the end of today’s blog, I’m hoping you’ll be as big of a believer in HydraFacial as I am!
Anyone who knows me knows that I love a good study, which is probably pretty evident from the number of studies I’ve referenced in previous S+A blog posts! You can tell me something works all day long and I’ll still likely be skeptical, but if you can actually show me a legitimate study proving the efficacy of a treatment, I’m all ears! If you’re like me and require proof behind words, then you will also appreciate that HydraFacial’s impact on acne patients has actually been studied!
I’ve linked the study above, but if you want the key highlights of it, here they are:
This means that both the patients and their providers both noted clearer skin in every single patient that was studied. I like those odds!
Just like I said that if you know me, you know I love studies, I also know that if you know me, you know I really value transparency and honesty. HydraFacial is a treatment that works by exfoliating and uses its patented Vortex-Fusion handpiece to apply suction to the face, making it an excellent treatment for blackheads. The downfall is that it is an excellent option for superficial blackheads and whiteheads.
If you have a stubborn blackhead or one that has been hanging around for a while, we would need to use aggressive suction and pressure to tackle that bad boy. That means that we would risk breaking capillaries or causing trauma to the skin, both of which we do not want to do. The option here is that we can just simply manually extract them directly following your HydraFacial, which we gladly do for no extra cost because we want you to feel you’re getting the best treatment possible.
It is estimated that somewhere around 16 million Americans have rosacea, making it a common skin concern. HydraFacial can improve rosacea by gently exfoliating the skin, extracting impurities, and infusing antioxidants. Because HydraFacial works to soothe, moisturize, and comfort the skin, rosacea patients can safely have these treatments.
With the HydraFacial Deluxe, you receive all the benefits listed above along with a booster customized to your skin and LED light therapy to reduce redness and inflammation. With the booster, S+A proudly carries ZO Skin Health products including the ZO HydraFacial booster! You may have heard of Rozatrol by ZO, which effectively improves skin redness. With ZO’s Rozatrol skin booster, you will see benefits like improvement of redness and sensitized skin, improved hydration, and a supported healthy skin barrier.
Although no specific study has been done regarding HydraFacial and rosacea just yet, a study in 2006 looked at a treatment using some of HydraFacial’s techniques and found them to be beneficial in improving papulopustular rosacea.
Beyond acne, blackheads, and rosacea, HydraFacial can also be customized to tackle issues like wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne scarring, brown spots, flaky skin, or freckles. Your provider at S+A will customize your treatment to suit your needs and concerns. If you would like lymphatic drainage or dermaplaning, we offer add-ons and different levels of HydraFacials to fit your concerns and budget!
The main downfall of HydraFacial, in my opinion, is that once you get one, you’re hooked! I love that HydraFacial is so customizable, but is also safe for all skin types and has no downtime. Event the next day? No problem! We’re here to get your skin glowing!
