Facials aren’t just a way to treat yourself and be pampered during a day at the spa. Many people don’t know that a facial is a powerful medical treatment that can improve the look and health of your skin. And if you want a facial, the HydraFacial is the best.

But how often should you have one? Should you use these treatments regularly, or will a one-time treatment be enough to make your skin better? Or is it best to combine it with other skin treatments?

Keep reading to find out what we think about HydraFacial, or call Method Aesthetics Scottdale, to get tips on taking care of your skin.

How does HydraFacial work?

Hydrafacial MD is a treatment almost anyone can use to feel like their skin is getting new. There are three main steps to the process.

  • Peeling and Cleaning – During this step, the HydraFacial removes the dirt, debris, and dead skin cells from the top layer of your skin.
  • Extraction and Hydration – The second step, extraction, and hydration, use suction to clear out clogged pores and open up the skin. Then, the device sends vital moisturizers into your skin to make it less dry and feed your cells.
  • Protecting and Fusing – During the last step of your HydraFacial, peptides and antioxidants are put on the surface of your skin. Not only do these ingredients make your skin healthy, but they also give it a healthy glow.

What’s In It For You?

Everyone can get a Hydrafacial, an intense exfoliation that removes dead skin cells and draws out impurities from the skin while restoring moisture. This makes the skin smoother and more alive. 

During treatment, a mild chemical peel is used to improve the tone and texture of the skin and remove more dead skin cells. You can also choose to use different serums to address other skin concerns and get the best hydration and rejuvenation for your skin. 

Clearing out pores makes skin brighter, cleaner, and more apparent. We can also combine our other treatments with HydraFacial, which give you the best of both worlds and leave your skin glowing and feeling better than it ever has.

Eventually, you’ll benefit more from what you expect upon getting this treatment. 

Who does it help?

HydraFacial works on all skin types and is a very effective way to improve your skin’s overall health. It is also great for:

  • Evenness and vivacity of skin tone
  • The skin tone on the surface
  • Oily or clogged skin
  • Large pores
  • Signs of getting older
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Elasticity and firmness
  • Skin texture
  • Hyperpigmentation or sun damage

The HydraFacial can be used to improve and maintain the results of other treatments, like Facelifts. Still, you should do it on separate visits.

Can You Get Hydrafacial and Wrinkle Treatments? 

Before this treatment, you shouldn’t get any treatments (like Botox-Dysport) to reduce wrinkles. This is because Hydrafacial increases blood flow to the area where the injections were given. 

This means that before the anti-wrinkle product is fully absorbed and active, it will cause unwanted drift or spread. But you could get the facial and then the injections right after that — even on the same day.

Can HydraFacial Treat People With Darker Skin?

Yes. This treatment is made for all types of skin. It is also easy on even the most sensitive skin. Usually, we will try to use only mild chemical peels that are safe for darker skin types.

We will also use specific treatment serums and tailor the treatment to your skin’s conditions and needs. Come in and talk to our practice nurse if you want to know more.

How Often Should You Get a HydraFacial?

With HydraFacial, your skin can be ready for the red carpet. Many people use this powerful treatment to quickly improve and enhance the look of their skin before significant events like weddings or family reunions.

Still, the best way to experience it is regularly. Every four to six weeks is the ideal time to have this treatment. Acne, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone are all problems that you can fix with consistent treatment. With regular care, you’ll always look your best. 

So, Can You Have Too Many HydraFacial Treatments? 

Even though HydraFacial can make a big difference, it is a safe and gentle skin treatment. Most likely, getting HydraFacials won’t hurt your skin, but they probably won’t help you, either. 

Most people do best with appointments four to six weeks apart. This gives you the best results while reducing the number of visits you need to keep your glow.

Our skin care experts may suggest that you get a HydraFacial more or less often, depending on the needs of each patient. We’ll make you a schedule that fits your needs.

Is HydraFacial Painful?

No. Hydrafacial treatment does not hurt or hurt. When the handpiece is moved over the skin during the exfoliation steps, it feels rough, like light sandpaper. Some clients want a more rough facial, so the machine’s strength can be turned up, and more pressure can be used. 

This is usually necessary for men, especially those with facial hair, to get the proper exfoliation and hydration. Less rubbing and pressure are needed on women. We constantly change the pressure depending on how much exfoliation you need and how much you like.

Treatment Preparation

Before the treatment, you shouldn’t have had anti-wrinkle or filler injections. You also can’t be pregnant or feeding a baby. Other reasons why you shouldn’t get a Hydrafacial are:

  • Herpes rashes.
  • Skin cancers on the face.
  • Inflammation of the face’s skin.
  • Severe acne. 

You also can’t eat it if you have a shellfish allergy. See this blog post’s complete list of things to prepare for a Hydrafacial.

What Can You Expect After HydraFacial?

After the treatment, you might be red for up to 30 minutes. If you don’t, you’ll notice that your skin is instantly fresher, dewy, clear, and glowing.

Maintaining Your HydraFacial Treatment

The effects of HydraFacial MD last for a long time, and you can get it done regularly to keep your skin healthy. You can do various matters to keep your skin looking its best between appointments. We could suggest that you:

  • Drink more water
  • Stop smoking
  • Limit your alcohol consumption
  • Eat healthy foods.
  • Every day, put on sunscreen.
  • Use a medical-grade skincare regimen daily
  • Clean your skin.

Again, Hydrafacials can be done once a month, once every three months, or whenever you feel like your skin needs a boost. A dermaplane can be used with a Hydrafacial to eliminate facial hair and peach fuzz.
