Why Is Summer a Good Time to Get a HydraFacial? 

Summer can damage your skin with the sun’s stronger ultraviolet rays, high temperatures, and humidity. That combined with heavier sunscreen, makeup, and sweat, exfoliating and moisturizing can protect your skin during the summer months. For these reasons, summer is the perfect time to get a HydraFacial treatment.

The HydraFacial skin treatment uses a combination of hydradermabrasion, extractions, and anti-aging products. Through a vacuuming process that both nourishes and cleanses the skin, the treatment cleans pores and simultaneously infuses the skin with vitamins. The treatment produces moisturized skin that is brighter, plumper, and protected.

What Skin Conditions Are Treated?

HydraFacials mitigate environmental and product damage. The HydraFacial treatment addresses common skin problems, such as:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines.
  • Skin texture and tone.
  • Firmness and elasticity.
  • Hyperpigmentation.
  • Sun damage.
  • Enlarged pores.
  • Congested skin.

Clogged skin pores from dead skin cells, dirt, and sebum results in skin abnormalities, such as breakouts, dull-looking appearance, and bumpy, damaged skin. The HydraFacial supplies the skin with exceptional hydration that repairs dry or damaged skin, radically improving the appearance of enlarged pores, blackheads, and acne scars. The simultaneous deep moisturizing is especially beneficial for mature, dry, or aging skin.

What Should I Expect During and After a HydraFacial Treatment?

The HydraFacial treatment is painless and performed in three steps:

  • Cleanse and peel: A cosmetic specialist will gently exfoliate your skin to uncover a fresh, new layer of skin that will be resurfaced during the HydraFacial process.
  • Extract and hydrate: The vacuuming function of the wand extracts debris from clogged pores, followed by a deep hydration application.
  • Fuse and protect: In the final step, the skin is saturated with a unique mix of peptides and antioxidants, providing protection and a maximizing glow.

The HydraFacial treatment is soothing and relaxing and will provide instant results, though your skin may be a little pink for up to 24 hours following the treatment. While there is no downtime as some spa treatments require, there are a few after-care instructions, such as:

  • Use only gentle skin cleansers, and avoid sonic or powered cleansing brushes and acid-based or exfoliation for the first three days following treatment.
  • Do not use acid-based or exfoliating skin care products.
  • Always apply sunscreen.

How Often Should HydraFacial Treatments Be Performed?

Depending on your skin type, HydraFacial treatments can be performed every two weeks, once per month, or once every six months. With no downtime, you can seek treatment whenever you want to look and feel refreshed. 

Scheduling regular appointments are recommended during the summer when 90 percent of skin damage occurs due to sun exposure, even on cloudy days. In addition to your regular skincare routine, consider incorporating a HydraFacial treatment to enhance your skin’s glowing appearance.
