5 Ways to Make Your HydraFacial Results Last Longer
Date Published: July 13th, 2023
If you want to rejuvenate healthy, glowing skin, HydraFacial is a great option! If you’re currently planning for a facial treatment or have recently received a HydraFacial, we recommend the following tips for long-lasting results.
What is a HydraFacial?
The HydraFacial is a 3-step treatment process that cleanses, hydrates, and exfoliates the skin to rejuvenate a healthy, glowing complexion. The first step is a deep cleansing followed by an exfoliating peel made with glycolic acid and salicylic acid. This peel will remove dead skin cells and surface debris to refresh a brighter skin tone and clearer skin. Next, extractions are performed to clean out clogged pores and remove blackheads and whiteheads. The skin is simultaneously hydrated with a stream of water and hyaluronic acid. Finally, a customized serum is applied to the skin using HydraFacial’s vortex technology. Serums are infused into the deep skin layers to maximize their benefits.
Every HydraFacial treatment can be customized to address specific skin concerns. Different serums use customized blends of antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid to nourish and hydrate the skin. After treatment, your skin will appear smoother and have a more radiant complexion. Enlarged pores will appear smaller, fine lines and wrinkles will be diminished, uneven skin texture smoothed and softened, and congested skin will be cleared.
How to Maintain Your Results
There are many ways that you can preserve your rejuvenated look after HydraFacial treatments. We recommend the following steps:
1. Drink Water
One of the main purposes of the HydraFacial is intense hydration and you can help results last by drinking enough water daily to prevent dehydration. Dehydrated, dry skin has a dull complexion, and it makes wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and other surface imperfections more apparent. Drinking plenty of water before and after a HydraFacial will maximize the benefits of your treatment. Patients of all skin types (including sensitive skin) can benefit from the gentle exfoliation and rejuvenation process of Hydrafacial treatment.
2. Upgrade Your Skincare Routine
If you haven’t been getting the results you hoped for from your current routine, now is the perfect chance to restart. If you’re using over-the-counter products, we recommend switching to professional-grade skincare because it has more potent ingredients in higher quantities to actively target your skin concerns and maintain skin health.
3. Protect Your Skin
Sun damage is one of the main causes of premature aging. Other environmental factors like pollutants, the wind, and extremely cold or dry temperatures can also break down the skin barrier and damage your skin. Although it can be difficult to avoid the weather, you can protect your skin from the sun. Use broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher every day to prevent damage from UV radiation.
4. Eat a Healthy Diet
Good nutrition for your body also nourishes the skin and keeps it healthy. Make sure to eat plenty of green leafy vegetables, fruits, and whole grains that are rich in vitamins and minerals. Dark chocolate, fish, nuts, eggs, and fortified dairy products are also rich in antioxidants and Omega-35 which can help decrease inflammation and redness. Foods that you should avoid or limit include alcohol, caffeine, processed foods, sugar, and red meat.
5. Maintenance Treatments
Regular HydraFacial treatments can be a great addition to your skincare routine. Although rejuvenated skin can be seen after just one treatment, regular facial treatments will build upon your results and maintain radiant skin. HydraFacials can be safely received year-round and only take 30-60 minutes. Plus, the treatment is relaxing and requires no downtime!
