HydraFacial Session: How it Works and Why is it so Popular

by Ghania Ahmad · March 17, 2021

We all want bright, smooth and youthful-looking skin.

Due to psychological and environmental imbalance, our skin goes through high stress and builds up a thin layer of rigid dead skin that cannot shed easily.

Instead of spending loads of oils, essences, creams, and serums in a multi-step skin-care routine every day, you may be able to achieve a radiant, natural glow with a one-time facial that is becoming very popular – HydraFacial.


What is a Hydrafacial Session?

A HydraFacial session comprises of a deep skin treatment that can give you fantastic results without having all the side effects normally associated with deep skin treatments.

Compared to microneedling, microdermabrasion, and chemical peel, it is a painless procedure that can be completed in 30 minutes with no downtime.

A new kind of skin treatment called the HydraFacial treatment in Sharjah.

It is trending these days as it is an easy way to maintain long-term skin health, which gives you more than any of your regular spa treatments.

The company that is offering the treatment is HydraFacial is currently available in more than 80 countries around the globe.

The HydraFacial is actually a multi-step facial treatment performed with a proprietary machine called HydraFacial MD, a product of Edge Systems.

In one treatment, aestheticians or your cosmetic skin treatments specialist can use the HydraFacial device to cleanse, exfoliate, extract, and deliver a variety of customized, rejuvenating serums in order to treat your skin.


How Does a HydraFacial Session Work?

The skin treatment procedure microdermabrasion is quite similar to HydraFacial.

The basic difference being microdermabrasion uses a mildly abrasive instrument to gently sand your skin, removing the uneven, thicker outer layer.

In contrast, the HydraFacial device has an exfoliating tip paired with suction to help remove dead skin cells from the surface of your face. Hence there is a slight difference between the two.

Then your skin is exfoliated, and serums are infused into the skin. This last step of infusing the serum into your skin is the key selling point of this treatment.

The HydraFacial treatment comprises three steps, according to the company. The entire treatment takes only 30 minutes and there is no downtime required.

Discussed below are three steps involved in a HydraFacial Dubai:

1. Cleanse and Peel

This is the first resurfacing step when your skin is exfoliated.

Exfoliation is the foremost process of skin treatment where dead skin cells are removed from the outer layer of the skin. It is said to have beneficial skin effects in the long run.

Exfoliation leaves your skin looking brighter, unclogging pores, thus increasing the much-needed collagen production.

This is all done in the HydraFacial procedure with the help of the HydraFacial tip.

Thus generating a fluid vortex over the skin that gently dislodges impurities and dead skin cells.

2. Extract and Hydrate

The HydraFacial tip extracts grease and impurities out of pores and delivers topical moisturizers thereby hydrating the skin simultaneously.

3. Fuse and Protect

The treatment session gets completed with serums that act as boosters.

The choice of the serums is customizable and are dictated by your skin goal, which can include reduction of hyperpigmentation, dull skin, fine lines and wrinkles, or enlarged pores.

The treatment is entirely customizable through these “boost” serums according to your skin tone, which is a major advantage for you.

Who Should Not Get a HydraFacial Session

HydraFacial is appropriate for all skin tones.

However, it should be avoided if you have an active rash, sunburn, or rosacea. It should be avoided by pregnant women as it contains salicylic acid, which hasn’t been proven safe during pregnancy.

However, this view is not shared by many. So, the safest way for pregnant women is to consult their obstetrician or dermatologist before getting a HydraFacial treatment.


HydraFacial Session VS. Other Procedures

There are a number of similarities as well as difference when it comes to hydrafacial vs. other procedures.

Let’s find out more about it in the next section!

hydrafacial session vs. other procedure

a) Against Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion scores over HydraFacial as it has been proven to reduce the appearance of stretch marks.

Having said that, microdermabrasion is known to affect skin’s color balance and may leave behind lighter or darker spots, whereas HydraFacial promises to leave behind smooth, even skin immediately.

b) Against Microneedling

Microneedling scores over HydraFacial for those who have permanent and deep acne scars and other kinds of facial scarring.

Both Microneedling and HydraFacial are recommended for all skin tones.

However, Microneedling is not a good choice for those who are at a higher risk of infection or have a low tolerance for pain or needles.

c)  Against Chemical Peels

Both HydraFacial and chemical peels work by removing dead skin cells.

Chemical peels ranging from superficial peels to deep peels all usually cause the skin to exfoliate and peel away.

They use chemicals to fix wrinkles, fine lines, freckles, age spots and shallow scars. Chemical peels are not for everyone.

They are taboo for those with certain skin disorders. Chemical peels have proved to be more effective in those with lighter skin tones, on the other hand, HydraFacial is recommended for people of any skin tone.

You would need to avoid chemical peels if you are nursing, pregnant, or have eczema, dermatitis, rosacea, or psoriasis.

On the contrary, HydraFacial is for people with hyper-sensitive skin, and in fact, for treating rosacea and dry, peeling skin.

d) Against Intense pulsed light (IPL)

IPL treatments do not work on all discolorations. Deeper discolorations such as age spots and deep freckles usually go away with microdermabrasion and other skin lightening techniques.

IPL photo facial is a relatively gentle treatment and is normally generally advisable for people with rosacea or delicate skin disorders.

IPL photo facial is a good option for those with surface discolorations, rosacea, and other skin issues.

However, it is not recommended for people with darker skin tones, those with deeper wrinkles and scarring.
