We all love having glowing skin, but there’s no doubt that a lot of work goes into maintaining a bright, even complexion all year round. Wouldn’t it be amazing if there were a way to simultaneously cleanse, exfoliate, and hydrate your skin with just one treatment? The breakthrough, three-in-one HydraFacial® is a popular procedure that can accomplish exactly that. It’s great for improving common skin irregularities, such as wrinkles and lines, discoloration, and oily or clogged pores. Here are five reasons why we love using HydraFacial® skin treatments at our Appleton, WI-based Excelin Medical Spa.
- It Goes Beyond Traditional Microdermabrasion
As early as our 20s and 30s, our skin is no longer as supple and dewy as it used to be, partially because it experiences more water loss that it did in our teens and childhood. What separates HydraFacial® from other skin resurfacing options like manual microdermabrasion and chemical peeling is that, as the name suggests, it replenishes the skin with much-needed moisture. The medical-grade device suctions debris and delivers ultra-hydrating ingredients when the pores are most receptive.
- It Offers a Gentler Alternative
Many people find HydraFacial® to a more comfortable treatment than traditional microdermabrasion, which involves exfoliating the outer skin layer by rubbing it with an abrasive surface or spraying it with gritty particles.
- It’s Safe for Most Skin Types
HydraFacial® is suitable for different skin types, unlike some other techniques that may not work as well on all skin tones. It’s also a calming treatment and less likely to irritate sensitive skin compared to lasers or chemical peeling.
- No Painful Side Effects or Significant Recovery
If you’re preparing for a special occasion like a wedding, work event, or important birthday, HydraFacial® is your go-to treatment. It offers some of the same benefits as classic microdermabrasion techniques without the same discomfort, and is unlikely to result in visible complications. HydraFacial® takes just between a half hour to an hour to be completed and doesn’t require extensive recovery times or aftercare.
- It’s Fully Customizable
People from all different age demographics with very different skin concerns can benefit, as HydraFacial® can be customized with various serums and intensities.
