Hydrafacial

Hydrafacial Roswell, GA

Want glowing, deeply clean skin? Of course, you do! With a HydraFacial, you’ll get to enjoy all the benefits of decadently clean, fresh skin without the harshness of a traditional chemical peel or laser resurfacing. The invigorating HydraFacial removes dead skin cells and extracts pore-clogging impurities while at the same time infusing your skin with hydrating, reparative serums. 

Benefits of HydraFacial  

While other facial treatments take time to deliver a full result, you’ll get to walk out of your HydraFacial with glowing, gorgeous skin in just minutes. The treatment itself is only 30 minutes long and can be tailored to meet your specific skin needs, such as acne, dullness, clogged pores, and more. Because it’s gentle while also being highly effective, the HydraFacial is appropriate for all types of skin.

Due to the deep exfoliation of your pores, the HydraFacial improves overall skin texture, tone, and appearance. HydraFacials cleans your pores, removes debris, and allows for better results from face serums tailored to your skin type. Although HydraFacials deliver an almost instant result, it is important to continue your daily skincare routine.

Below are some of the many benefits of a HydraFacial:

  • Suitable for all skin types. Due to its minimally invasive characteristics and ability to adjust, a HydraFacial is good for all skin types including oily, acne-prone, dry and flaky, or a combination of these.
  • Gentle on the skin. Even though a HydraFacial involves both exfoliation and extraction, it is painless and does not irritate the skin. Many patients compare the sensation of a HydraFacial to a light face massage!
  • Zero downtime. There is no waiting for redness or irritation to disappear because there is none! Results can be noticeable immediately and treatment only lasts 30 minutes. Can be combined with other treatments. Because a HydraFacial is non-invasive, it can be easily combined with other skin care treatments to achieve each patient’s aesthetic goals.
  • Customizable to fit your wants and needs. HydrFacials are made to be tailored to each patient. Serums can be chosen to match the skin type and needs of the patient. The vacuum suction can also be adjusted for sensitive areas of the skin, such as under the eyes to avoid any irritation or redness.

What is a HydraFacial? 

A HydraFacial is a non-invasive procedure that provides more dramatic results than a regular facial. The procedure includes a mechanized wand used on your skin that deeply cleans and exfoliates while delivering serums tailored to your skin type.

A HydraFacial is done in four parts for a combined benefit that’s greater than the sum of its parts. 

Step 1 – Cleansing and Exfoliating – The HydraFacial wand uses vortex cleansing to deep clean your skin, removing sebum, dead skin, and impurities while opening up the pores. 

Step 2 – Gentle Chemical Exfoliation – After cleansing, your provider will change the tip on the HydraFacial wand to one that infuses your skin with an exfoliating mix of glycolic and salicylic acids to loosen deeply-embedded debris from your skin. 

Step 3 – Extraction – The HydraFacial wand is again changed to one with a vacuum suction that gently draws out debris from blackheads and clogged pores. 
Step 4 – Serums – Your provider will apply a soothing antioxidant serum to deliver beneficial nutrients to your skin that rejuvenate and hydrate for a glowing complexion.

HydraFacial vs. Microdermabrasion

A HydraFacial is similar to microdermabrasion. However, microdermabrasion is a bit more invasive than HydraFacial because it uses a rough tool to sand the outer layer of skin to loosen debris and smooth out uneven skin. A HydraFacial tool has many different tips to use to exfoliate the outer layer of skin, to gently infuse the skin and loosen deeply-embedded debris, a tip to extract or “vacuum” out debris that has been exfoliated, and finally, a tip to apply soothing antioxidant serums your doctor has chosen for your skin. Due to its variety of abilities, the HydraFacial wand tends to be a more popular choice over microdermabrasion. To top it off, there is no downtime after a HydraFacial, whereas there may be some pain and swelling from a microdermabrasion procedure.

HydraFacial side effects

While HydraFacials are believed to be free of complications, you may feel light pressure from the wand being used during treatment. If you have an active rash, such as a rosacea flare-up, it is recommended you wait to get this procedure done. 

A HydraFacial is designed to help address excess sebum, oil, and dead skin cells that can lead to breakouts. It is important to let us know before your treatment if you have extremely sensitive skin, or if you are allergic to certain ingredients that may cause your skin to break out.  

After a HydraFacial, you may notice smoother, more radiant skin, with a more balanced skin tone. You may notice these changes immediately, without any irritation. Here at AR Roswell, we are ready to help you achieve your skincare goals, schedule your HydraFacial today!
