Imagine having clear, smooth, youthful-looking skin without investing in multiple costly skincare products. A HydraFacial is a convenient, all-in-one anti-aging skin treatment that can help you turn back the clock and achieve brighter, radiant skin. You may also have heard about a skin treatment called Hydra Skin Refiner, but what’s the difference between a Hydra Skin Refiner and a HydraFacial?
Here’s a closer look at how these skin refinement treatments are related, and where you can find a medical aesthetics clinic that offers a HydraFacial.
What is a HydraFacial?
A HydraFacial is a water-based facial that cleanses, exfoliates, and hydrates the skin. This non-invasive treatment is highly similar to microdermabrasion, but comes with the added benefit of hydration to give you moisturized skin. A HydraFacial can improve your overall appearance by reducing fine lines and wrinkles, correcting hyperpigmentation, and reversing other common signs of aging on the face.
A HydraFacial is usually performed by an aesthetician using a pen-like device. First, the skin is cleansed and exfoliated to remove dead skin cells contributing to a dry complexion. Then, the device applies a gentle peel to the face to help loosen dirt and debris without causing irritation. Next, the device uses a gentle vacuum suction technology to extract skin impurities. Lastly, a combination of antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, and other healing serums are infused into the skin to give it a radiant, clear, and smooth appearance.
What is a Hydra Skin Refiner?
A Hydra Skin Refiner is the machine used to perform all the steps of a HydraFacial. The machine features pen-like devices that perform each stage of the HydraFacial, including dermabrasion to achieve unclogged pores, the extraction of skin impurities and dead skin cells using a vacuum, and the spraying of water and therapeutic serums into the skin.
Clinical studies show that the Hydra Skin Refiner produces more favorable results than many other anti-aging skin rejuvenation systems, and is also more comfortable for patients. The Hydra Skin Refiner is virtually painless, offers no downtime, and works on all skin types to deliver healthier, younger-looking skin.
What are the Benefits of a HydraFacial?
A HydraFacial performed with the Hydra Skin Refiner offers benefits for those who want to improve the appearance of their skin and reverse signs of aging.
First, a HydraFacial is a non-invasive procedure, meaning it does not involve needles, incisions, or downtime. The treatment takes only 30 minutes and allows patients to resume their normal daily activities following their appointment. Results are near-instant, and the only side effect reported by few patients is redness for an hour after treatment.
A HydraFacial can address a wide range of skin conditions, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Pigmentation irregularities
- Loose, sagging skin
- Uneven skin tone
- Dry complexion
- Enlarged pores
- Photodamage (sun damage)
- Oily skin
- Dark under-eye circles
- Acne scars
A HydraFacial cleanses, exfoliates, extracts, and hydrates the skin in just one single treatment. The serums and gentle acids used in a HydraFacial may produce a slight tingling sensation on the skin that many patients compare to the sensation of a light massage. Patients can lie down and relax for the duration of this skin exfoliation procedure as an aesthetician uses the Hydra Skin Refiner to treat the face.
The HydraFacial is also customizable, which means your aesthetician will likely develop a specialized formula for your face based on your unique skin needs. Patients who are interested in a HydraFacial with Parfaire Medical Aesthetics can schedule a free consultation to discuss what they hope to achieve with this anti-aging treatment, and to learn more about the serums that may be used during their procedure.
Who are Ideal Candidates for a HydraFacial?
Anyone who wants to improve skin conditions and/or reverse signs of aging would be an ideal candidate for a HydraFacial. This non-invasive treatment is also a great option for anyone who wants to improve the appearance of their skin without undergoing more invasive procedures such as facelift surgery or Botox. A HydraFacial can be performed on all skin types, including those who have highly sensitive skin.
