How HydraFacials Benefit Your Skin’s Health

How HydraFacials Benefit Your Skin's Health

Everyone prefers skin that is smooth, bright, and youthful. Rather than spending a fortune on skin care products in a series of multistep skin-care routines, you may be able to acquire a natural glow with a facial treatment, which some say is becoming increasingly popular.

Adherents of the trendy HydraFacial treatment tout it as a means to attain and maintain long-term healthy skin, making it more than just a spa treatment. A HydraFacial is performed every 15 seconds, according to the HydraFacial website, and it is presently available in more than 80 countries, such as the United States.

So why are so many people interested in the treatment? To find out, continue reading the article:

What Is HydraFacial?

The HydraFacial is a multistep facial treatment typically performed with a machine manufactured by Edge Systems called the HydraFacial MD. This machine is considered to be Edge Systems’ proprietary device. Aestheticians can use the HydraFacial [device] to thoroughly cleanse, exfoliate, extract, and apply several different rejuvenating serums in the span of a single treatment.

It produces an immediate “wow factor” in terms of glowing and firming the skin, and as a result, it has become a service in high demand. People could get the treatment in preparation for an important event, or they can get it regularly to keep their skin healthy.

HydraFacial In Three Steps

The HydraFacial is comparable to another treatment known as microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion sands your skin gently with a “mildly abrasive instrument, removing the denser, uneven outer layer.” However, it is not microdermabrasion, and some claim it is far superior.

The HydraFacial device removes dead skin cells from the exterior of your face using an exfoliating tip and suction. After exfoliation, serums are then infused into the skin, and that final step is the main reason supporters claim it is so effective.

According to the company, the HydraFacial treatment consists of three steps. There is no downtime—a term used in dermatology to describe recovery time—and the entire procedure can be achieved in as little as 30 minutes.

The following are the three steps in a HydraFacial:

1.) Cleanse And Peel

The exfoliation process that occurs during step s is considered the resurfacing step. The approach of removing dead skin cells from the surface of the skin’s outermost layer is known as exfoliation. It has been comprehended for a long time that it has beneficial effects on the skin, including making the skin appear brighter, preventing pores from becoming clogged, and, with continued use, increasing the production of collagen. 

All of this is carried out within the HydraFacial machine with the help of the HydraFacial tip. It creates a fluid vortex over the skin, which gently lifts impurities and dead skin cells from the skin’s surface.

2.) Extract And Hydrate

The tip removes gunk from pores while simultaneously delivering topical moisturizers to the skin’s surface.

3.) Infuse and Protect

The final step of your treatment will consist of boosters, also known as serums. These are designed to help you achieve your desired appearance for your skin, whether that be a reduction in the formation of hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, dull skin, or enlarged pores. The fact that the treatment can be modified entirely through these “boost” serums is a significant advantage for patients.

Another option is the DiamondGlow Facial, a three-step facial treatment that includes both exfoliation and the application of active topicals. Another treatment of this kind is Geno Super-Facial, which claims to exfoliate, extract, and infuse the skin to make it look radiant and rejuvenated. 

The basic idea behind each one is the same: to exfoliate the skin followed by an infusion of serums, but the patented technologies are different. Inquire with your dermatologist or aesthetician about the treatment that will work best for you and the options they have available.

How HydraFacials Benefit Your Skin

This company makes a bold claim, claiming that its product will give you the best skin of your life. The complexion has significant benefits, although this cannot be considered a guarantee. The device also exfoliates the skin while simultaneously delivering active ingredients to the skin. 

HydraFacial is a facial treatment that can improve skin hydration, radiance, skin texture, and pore size, depending on the specific active ingredients used. The company uses its serums, but to provide customers with a greater variety of options, they have also formed partnerships with other businesses such as Alastin Skincare, ZO Skin Health, and HydroPeptide. 

You will benefit most from discussing with your provider about this matter.

What Studies Say

Some older investigation lends credence to the idea that the premise is accurate; however, there is no specific research on the HydraFacial procedure itself. The benefits of hydradermabrasion were investigated in the past in a limited study that involved 20 female participants ranging in age from 34 to 65. 

This treatment is comparable to the HydraFacial in that it combines microdermabrasion with the application of antioxidant serums; however, the HydraFacial treatment itself was not the subject of the research that was conducted for this study.

During the research, one group received all six treatments at approximately weekly intervals. Another group was given only the antioxidant serum, which was massaged into their skin by hand once a week. The researchers evaluated the results using photographs, skin biopsies, and the levels of antioxidants found in the skin. 

After the research project, only the group that had undergone hydradermabrasion had increased levels of antioxidants and increased thickness in both the outer layer of skin and the papillary layer (which contains collagen). In terms of how things looked, this resulted in fewer fine lines, more tightly closed pores, and an overall more even tone to the skin.

The results of the study indicated that a microdermabrasion treatment combined with topical antioxidants, such as those included in the HydraFacial, was more effective than either of the treatments when used individually.


The HydraFacial is a treatment that can be performed on people of any skin tone and does not mandate any downtime after the procedure. As soon as you walk out the door, your complexion will look better. After only one treatment, a significant number of patients have reported seeing visible skin-refining and an even and radiant skin tone.
