A Hydro Facial also referred to as, Aqua Facial, Hydra dermabraision, Aqua facial, or Hyrafacial is a facial treatment using a device to deliver exfoliation, cleansing, extraction, and hydration to the face. This system uses a vortex swirling action to deliver hydration and to remove dead skin, dirt, debris, and impurities while cleaning and soothing your skin.
A Hydro Facial includes 4 facial treatments rolled into one session: cleansing and exfoliating, a gentle chemical peel, vacuum suction extraction, and a hydrating serum. These steps are delivered using a patented Hydro Facial device (which looks like a large rolling cart with hoses and a wand with detachable heads). Unlike traditional facial treatments that can have different effects depending on your skin type and aesthetician, the Hydro Facial provides consistent results and can be used on all skin types.
The cleansing, exfoliation, chemical peel, collagen building, and facial muscle relaxing provided by a Hydro Facial helps treat many of the beauty issues individuals experience today, including large pores, wrinkles, breakouts, and thinning skin.
A HydraFacial treatment takes on average 1 hour. If this is your first Hydro Facial appointment, here’s what to expect:
1 – Cleansing & Exfoliation
The first step during your HydraFacial is cleansing and exfoliation. Using a vortex cleansing and hydra peel tip, your aesthetician will use the HydraFacial wand to gently cleanse and exfoliate the skin. This removes dead skin cells and sebum while gently opening your pores. Some people describe it like having a revolving electric toothbrush gently pressed to your skin.
2 – Chemical Peel
Next, your aesthetician will change the tip on the wand to deliver a gentle chemical peel. Unlike other chemical peels that are often irritating or painful and leave your skin red for hours or days, HydraFacial use a non-irritating mix of salicylic and glycolic acids for a gentle yet effective peel. The purpose of this step is to loosen deep pore debris.
3 – Extraction
The third step in a Hydro Facial is extraction. This is where the device will use strong, painless vortex vacuum suction to remove blackheads and impurities from your pores. These impurities collect in a cup to be discarded.
4 – Hydrating Serum
Lastly, your aesthetician will use the Hydro Facial wand to apply a soothing antioxidative and hydrating serum with peptides and other beneficial nutrients. This helps to detoxify, rejuvenate, and hydrate the skin. SPF then see the new skin.
How Often Should I Get a Hydro Facial?
If you haven’t had a facial or hydra-care routine in the past, it can be beneficial to start with 2-4 Hydro Facials a month for about 3 months. Once you’ve established a better baseline for facial skin health, you can benefit from a once-a-month appointment.
