Why More People Are Considering Hydrafacials

Why More People Are Considering Hydrafacials

Everyone wants a glowing, healthy complexion. But our faces are exposed to the sun and environmental conditions that cause damage, and are subject to the ravages of time, which can lead to dry dullness. 

At AdvancedMD Aesthetics of Atlanta in Marietta, Georgia, Dr. Maki Rheaume and her staff work hard to make sure you’re putting your best face forward. One of our favorite services is the HydraFacial, for several reasons. Not only do we like offering this amazing treatment, but we’re also finding it increasingly in demand because our clients like it, too. 

A HydraFacial up close

A HydraFacial is a specific type of facial treatment. In order to offer it, we have to have special training and be licensed. The technology is patented, and the experience consists of specific steps and uses proprietary products both during and for maintenance after the treatment. 

The three steps of a Hydrafacial are: 

1. Clean + Peel

We use a specialized tool to exfoliate your skin gently, and clean it with a serum to remove dead skin cells and other debris. This stage reveals a layer of new, healthy skin. It’s similar to a chemical peel, but far gentler. 

2. Extract + Hydrate

During this portion of the treatment, we use a specialized suction tool to remove any sebum or other blockages in your pores. We then apply serums to nourish and protect your skin. 

3. Fuse + Protect

The last step is to deeply moisturize and protect your skin. Antioxidants and peptides fill the products used at this stage to keep your skin healthy looking and maximize your glowiness. We also send you home with Daily Essentials™ to help you maintain your results between treatments. 

Chemical peel vs. HydraFacial

The results you get are similar, but with a HydraFacial, you don’t experience scaling as you do with a chemical peel. Also, chemical peels work best on lighter-toned skin, but HydraFacials work equally well on all skin tones. 

Some chemical peels aren’t appropriate for sensitive skin, as they can cause irritation. HydraFacials are nourishing and non-irritating, making them superior for some people. 

Microdermabrasion vs. Hydrafacial

In some ways, microdermabrasion and HydraFacials are quite similar, but one difference is how the deep-cleaning step is performed. With microdermabrasion, the extraction is done manually, while a HydraFacial uses suction with a patented technology. The vacuum tool can reach deeper into the pore than you can get with manual extraction. 

Ready for your HydraFacial? 

HydraFacials are an appropriate treatment for most people. If you’re pregnant, have an active rash, or you have rosacea, you shouldn’t have a HydraFacial. Otherwise, you’ll find that it’s an effective treatment that leaves you with clean, happy skin.
