Facials have always been synonymous with relaxation and a healthy skin. However, the unending facial menu’s can be too much jargon and there is a huge gap between the qualities of the ingredients being used in the industry. All of this leads to information asymmetry between the customer and the skin clinic, mostly to the advantage of the skin clinic.
Let’s consider what we expect from a facial: The perfect facial should be relaxing, hydrating, stimulating, moisturizing and rejuvenating. Most beauty clinics would have 5 different facials to achieve what a single facial session should achieve.
However, there is some light at the end of this dark tunnel, in the form of Hydra-Facials. Also referred to Aqua Peeling or Hydro-Dermabrasion.
What are Hydra Facials?
Also known as, “Hydra-Dermabrasion”, It is non-invasive 4 step facial that:
- Cleans and Exfoliates dead skin cells to reveal healthy new skin.
- Peels gently to help loosen dirt and debris from pores without any irritation.
- Automatically extracts impurities, and
- Adds hydration with serums and antioxidants to nourish and protect.
Due to this multi-therapeutic approach, hydra facials are easily differentiated from other forms of skin rejuvenating and microdermabrasion (MDA) treatment procedures.
Why it is more appreciated than any other Facial
Believe me when I say: This facial is for on-the-go girls! Its multi therapeutic approach combines various benefits into the time of a single facial session. Some of the merits of a 30 minute procedure are:
- It targets various skin problems like, blackheads, whiteheads, brown spots, acne, sun damage, uneven skin tone, enlarged pores, and the fine lines of premature aging.
- Improves the overall quality of skin through the extraction of dead layers and cleaning of dirt and debris from the pores.
- Improvements to facial tone and texture with less dyschromia (skin discoloration)
- Hydrates and nourishes the skin for much softer and brighter look.
- Stimulates the blood flow for much healthier looking skin
- No downtime, no irritation like other peels with instant results assurance
- Bespoke Treatment for your skin’s requirement- Which means it is tailored to individual skincare needs.
On what condition it is not suggested
As a regular Facial, Hydra Dermabrasion is perfect for you if you want regular
- Deep lines
- Deep Hyperpigmentation problems
- Broken skin
Skin conditions like above more often demand invasive treatments. However, Hydra Dermabrassion can be used in combination or in conjunction with other invasive treatment to compliment the results.
Associated Side Effects with Hydra Dermabrassions
- On rare occasions, there might be some shedding or redness for a day or so.
- Do not clean skin with soap or face wash for at-least 12 hours
- Follow your regular skincare regimen from the same night.
- If needed, regular make-up can be applied right after the treatment
