So, what is a facial treatment? They come in many different forms, from clay masks to chemical peels, but are mostly intended to improve skin health and often to enhance its appearance.

Different Facial Treatments

Different skin types require different facial treatments. For example, if you have extremely oily, acne-prone skin, you’ll want to try a charcoal mask. If you have dry, sensitive skin, treatments that include ingredients such as white clay, aloe, or rosewater will be more beneficial for you.

What is a HydraFacial Treatment?

A HydraFacial treatment is a non-invasive procedure that uses state-of-the-art technology and nutrient-dense formulas to help enhance skin tone and texture. HydraFacials are great for all skin types and can help solve concerns such as fine lines and wrinkles, acne, and uneven skin tone. Benefits that are noticeable immediately after the treatment include baby-soft, glowing skin (who wouldn’t want that?). To learn more about how it can work for you, we’ve compiled a step-by-step HydraFacial breakdown.

What Are the Steps of the HydraFacial?

A HydraFacial works its magic in three simple steps:

Cleanse and Peel

The treatment begins with a cleanse to prepare the skin and remove any makeup. Then, glycolic acid and salicylic acid are used to create a chemical peel. This helps in removing dead skin cells and debris.

Extraction and Hydration

Next, the esthetician will use the Vortex extraction tip on the HydraFacial device to open clogged pores. After removing the impurities, the HydraPeel tip will infuse your skin with hyaluronic acid to rehydrate and calm your skin.

Fuse and Protect

One of the last steps is serum application. Your skin will be saturated with an antioxidant serum to create a beautiful, healthy glow. LED light therapy will be applied after, using both red and blue LED lights to stimulate collagen and elastin production, banish acne, reduce inflammation, and accelerate healing.

The best part of a HydraFacial treatment is that your esthetician can customize it for you depending on what your skin needs that day. No matter what, you’ll leave with your skin glowing, healthy, and clean!

HydraFacial Treatment Cost

Spa Imagine offers both 50-minute and 80-minute HydraFacial options. Here, you’ll also get a “Lamina Lift Mask” as an extra step at the end of your treatment to leave your skin feeling smooth and renewed.
