Your face is the first thing someone sees when you enter a room, this is why all of us want to put our best foot forward always. Nothing can match the joy of gliding your fingers on your face and feeling smooth, supple skin. Most of us follow a skincare regimen to achieve clear and soft skin. But despite our best efforts, sometimes our skin doesn’t feel like it’s in its best condition.
Caught between the crossfire of our stressful jobs, irregular meal times, improper nutrition, and immeasurable pollution, our skin ends up paying the price of our hectic lives. This is why once in a while, it becomes imperative for us to let the professionals take the reign of our skincare routine and work their magic on our face. And yes, we are talking about facials.
The journey to a glowing, radiant skin can be a treacherous one. Today, the market is saturated with hundreds of facials with a plethora of active ingredients, tricks, and steps. But at the end of the day, it all boils down to what works best for you and gives you the results that you have been vying for.
One such debate in this battle of beauty is – traditional vs medical-grade Hydrafacial. With AQI index climbing heights that are taller than Jack’s beanstalk, finding that one treatment that can help you with all your skin concerns is like finding a needle in the haystack. So today, let us put an end to all your skin concerns and chart out a roadmap for your glowing skin.
What exactly is Hydrafacial?
It is a result-driven facial treatment that combines the benefits of the latest technology to provide you with super soft supple skin. It is a type of advanced skin treatment also known as hydra dermabrasion that uses microdermabrasions consisting of skin exfoliation and hydration with serums. This treatment works by removing all the makeup, oil, and dirt from the deepest layer of your skin and topping it off with serums and concentrates that alleviate your skin issues.
How does Hydrafacial work?
It is a non-invasive treatment that improves skin health, addresses individual skin concerns, and creates a glow that’ll have you shining brighter than a diamond. It involves three main steps:
- Cleansing: Firstly, a trained esthetician or dermatologist preps your skin by deeply cleaning and exfoliating it with a gentle peel to uncover a new layer of skin.
- Extraction: Next, they remove the impurities from the deepest crevices of your pores with the help of a vacuum-like attachment
- Hydration: Lastly, the skin’s surface is saturated with intense moisturizers and nourishing, personalized concentrates. On top of it, an antioxidant serum is applied to your skin to create a protective barrier that protects it from impurities and dirt.
How is Hydrafacial different from traditional facials?
Even though both kinds of facial deliver almost the same kind of results which is skin rejuvenation and relaxation, at the end of the day there are some differences between the two that set them vastly apart from each other.
Gentler on the skin
HydraFacial technology relies on a suction-based device to cleanse and remove dirt and debris from your pores. This same device refills your pores with hydrating peptides and antioxidants, leaving you with an instant glow. A lack of manual extraction makes this process gentler on the skin than most regular facials, making it an excellent option for people with sensitive skin.
Better and long-lasting results.
Unlike traditional facials, Hydrafacial is performed via a device rather than by hand. This leads to a deeper penetration and long-lasting results. It uses a device wand that works like a vacuum to open pores for a deep cleanse and easy extraction of impurities and dead skin cells. It also allows the active ingredients in the boosters and concentrates to penetrate deeper for the most effective treatment possible.
Completely customizable to your skin needs
Traditional facials have a set range of products and services involved which might not suit every skin type or address all your skin grievances. Hydrafacial on the other hand offer a personalized treatment to every patient so you can tackle your issues with a more targeted approach. Be it rosacea, acne, blackheads, fine lines, wrinkles, or any other skin concern, you can get a customized treatment that is specifically made for your skin.
Safe for everyone
Traditional facials use chemical-based products to deliver results. Even though, they are safe for most parts. For people with sensitive skin or acne, they might worsen the skin condition. Hydrafacial on the other hand is a safer alternative as it’s carried out by dermatologists and trained estheticians. In fact, even pregnant women and lactating mothers can safely get their Hydrafacial done as it has absolutely no side effects.
Instant results with no downtime
The struggle of scheduling a facial is real! One has to block off an entire day to get a facial done as it usually leaves your skin super sensitive and aggravated. Moreover, one has to wait for at least a day or two to see the results of their facial. Hydrafacial definitely beats traditional facials in this regard as one can see the results almost instantly after the treatment is done. And since it’s administered using a tool, it doesn’t irritate the skin and leave it sensitive so you can resume your day with glowing skin and a pep in your step.
There’s no doubt that choosing the right facial is quite a chore. The debate of Hydrafacial vs regular facial is a never-ending one. But when it comes to the results, Hydrafacial definitely takes the win with its more advanced equipment, customizable treatment, and guaranteed efficacy. It can be done safely at a clinic and doesn’t cause any pain before or after the treatment, but most importantly, it caters to people with various kinds of skin conditions.
