At a glance:
What is hydrafacial?
Hydrafacial is a system developed in the USA that combines different procedures to improve the skin non-invasively. The skin is removed, cleaned, peeled, supplied with vitamins and then irradiated with infrared light. Hydrafacial is also known as a cosmetic, cleansing and rejuvenation treatment Combined peeling, at the same time extracting the skin, moisturizing it and providing antioxidant protection. Hollywood stars like Paris Hilton, Eva Longoria and Kate Winslet regularly use Hydrafacial for skin rejuvenation. The facial treatment is designed to prevent changes in pigmentation, wrinkles, acne or inflammation in the skin, as old skin is worn away and the skin underneath is forced to renew itself and reveal a healthier, fresher version.
Hydrafacial: Four Steps of Treatment
First, the skin is cleaned with a vortex or diamond attachment. In the meantime, the attachment injects serums into the skin, while the attachment edges remove dead skin cells and suck them off using a vacuum.
Now the skin is softened by a peeling made from glycolic and salicylic acid. The process takes a few minutes and is less invasive, but as effective as a fruit acid peel. After the skin is softened in this way, the pores are cleaned of blackheads and flakes of skin. The device sucks in the dead skin again with a kind of vacuum, which feels like a mini vacuum cleaner on the skin.
Then antioxidants, vitamins A and E, peptides, urea, white tea and hyaluron are introduced into the skin and can act there directly.
The skin is then illuminated with infrared light for twenty minutes. The infrared light activates the metabolic processes. It accelerates wound healing, relaxes the tissue and promotes blood circulation. Depending on the skin type, blue light can also be used for acne, for example. This stimulates the formation of oxygen in the clogged pores and fights bacteria.
Who is Hydrafacial for?
Hydrafacial can be used on all skin types – the procedure is also suitable for very sensitive skin. The treatment can also be used for acne and rosacea.
The result can not only be seen, but also measured: if you have an ultrasound image of your skin before the treatment, you can find out afterwards that collagen formation is still stimulated weeks after the treatment. The literally pore-deep cleansing can reduce wrinkles and pigment spots, which according to surveys are most responsible for an older appearance. It is also nice that no recovery phase has to be observed after the treatment, as it is non-invasive and there is no reddening or similar to be seen. The effectiveness of Hydrafacial has only been scientifically confirmed in smaller studies.
Hydrafacial: How Often?
In order to maintain the results of the Hydrafacial in the long term, it is recommended to carry out the facial treatment every 14 days at the beginning and then every four to six weeks.
What does a hydrafacial treatment cost?
The price for a Hydrafacial treatment lasting 65 minutes starts at around 170 euros. Often there are package prices for several sessions.
