Your skin needs pampering once in a while to stay youthful and glowing. Sure, cleansing and moisturising is important, but we’re talking about going that extra mile that will put you ahead of the pack. HydraFacial is one of today’s most sought-after skincare treatments to keep you looking young and refreshed. It is designed to combat various skin complaints and the results are almost immediate. Read on to know more about one of my favourite facial treatments and how it can help you enjoy healthy and young-looking skin.
What is HydraFacial?
HydraFacial is a multi-stage facial that uses a patented spiral tip that can simultaneously exfoliate, clear blocked pores and deliver nourishing serums. The first step in the HydraFacial treatment gives the skin a deep cleansing of all the nasties and toxins that it gets exposed to on a daily basis. The second step uses a mild skin peel to soften the pores of the skin in preparation for the third step where the supercharged cleaning occurs. This is where HydraFacial literally vacuums the pores clean, removing even blackheads and congestion (and if you are curious after the treatment you can look at the waste jar on the machine and actually see what is dragged out of your skin!). Once the skin is fully clean the final step of the treatment delivers nourishing serums into the skin to boost skin nutrition.
An optional step can be added after the third step to target specific skin conditions and outcomes. Your HydraFacial clinic may recommend these according to your specific needs to ensure maximum effectiveness FOR YOU.
When the treatment is finished you will see an instantly noticeable improvement in skin tone and texture. Your skin increases its uptake of antioxidants to help improve your skin health and your skin feels clean, smooth and refreshed. You can extend the results you achieve in the clinic by purchasing the HydraFacial Daily Essentials skin care kit which contains some of the nourishing serums used in the professional treatment.
Why is it Popular?
This latest skincare treatment is becoming more and more popular since its launch, but why? Below are great reasons why you should try out HydraFacial:
1. Preferred by Stars
Many people take note of the treatments done by the stars. They have money and access to the best treatments, so if they choose something over the other treatments available you know it has to be good. Celebrities often get HydraFacial sessions to prepare their skin for the red carpet. Hollywood stars who have had the HydraFacial treatment include Beyonce, Kate Winslet, and Eva Mendez.
2. True to its Claims
The HydraFacial treatments are effective, quick, and relaxing. The skin becomes clean, radiant, moist, refined, and polished. You may notice some mild redness on the skin after the treatment, but these usually always disappear within a few minutes. The whole procedure is so quick that it is a great option for people who are always on-the-go. Lunchtime beauty!
3. Results are Significant
Whilst you can feel the good it’s doing your skin straight away, the best results can be seen after six treatments spaced two to four weeks apart. By then, many of your fine lines will have disappeared, congestion will have been cleared away, and hyperpigmentation will become less obvious. This is how fast the results become significantly noticeable. After the six-week intensive treatment, you can maintain the results with a treatment every one to two months.
4. HydraFacial Makes Every Other Treatment Better
One of the best things about HydraFacial is that it works amazingly well before and after other advanced treatments. Most clinics find that when HydraFacial is combined with other advanced treatments the results are even better than if you did both treatments separate from one another.
5. Your Skin is Clearer Because It Is Healthier
One of the best outcomes of HydraFacial is that your skin absorbs the skin serums better than if you were applying the same serums by hand. This helps to improve your overall skin health which leads to longer lasting results. With the improvements in skin health, combined with visible improvements after each treatment, your skin will look bright, youthful and glowy. Many people feel the natural glow on their skin is so radiant that they don’t feel the need to apply as much makeup! And when they do apply makeup in the days following HydraFacial most people comment that their make-up always feels better going on and looks more even.
