Hydrafacial MD® Facts and Benefits

HydraFacial MD®  Facts and Questions

What is a HydraFacial® treatment?

It is a multiple step treatment that addresses many skin concerns including aging skin, acne, pigmentation, fine lines and blackheads to name a few.  It’s patented technology works for all skin types, and most skin conditions without little or no downtime.  

Can I go to the beach, exercise or play golf after a treatment?

Bella Reina estheticians recommend no sun, no workouts or beach for 1-2 days after your treatment as your skin will be more sensitive to the sun and heat. Sunscreen is recommended at all times, especially in South Florida as your newly exfoliated skin will need protection.

Does the HydraFacial® remove blackheads and whiteheads?

If you have blocked pores, stubborn blackheads, even some whiteheads, this facial uses a mild suction power with a soft spiral tip to draw out those clogged pores. The process feels gentle while it uses a vacuuming action to remove excess oil and dead skin. The best part is that you can see what is removed at the end of each facial.

Can makeup be applied after a treatment?

After a treatment, makeup can be applied if it is jane iredale® Skin Care makeup or comparable mineral makeup. Bella Reina estheticians would prefer that you leave your skin bare for the rest of the day following your treatment.

Will the HydraFacial® remove milia?

Milia can be loosened and extracted manually during a treatment.  The special vortex suction, the skin softening ingredients and the glycolic and salicylic acids all work together to help soften the milia, making it easier to extract. More than one treatment may be required to loosen the milia as they develop under the skin. 

Does it cause breakouts?

Just like any facial treatment, breakouts are always possible as toxins and debris are pulled to the surface. With a thorough facial treatment, all of your pimples or blackheads should be removed. Extraction time can be added for those requiring additional extractions.

How much does it cost?

The cost of a HydraFacial® ranges from $199 – $300 depending on where you live. The Perk, an eye and lip treatment ranges from $30 to $50. You may find that some places will offer it at a discounted price by eliminating some of the steps. Make sure you are getting a complete HydraFacial® if you find it discounted.

Will it remove dark spots and pigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation and dark spots are typically very hard to work on without aggressive treatments. The HydraFacial® works with all skin types and colors with a patented booster blend of brighteners and lighteners. With the addition of skin serum vitamins to re-educate the skin cells, the combination works extremely well to lighten the skin.

Will it cause me to peel?

HydraFacials® can cause light flaking depending on the strength of the exfoliation. Most use a lower range of peel that can be used on all skin tones, especially sensitive skins. This facial can actually be used on rosacea, and peeling skin.

How long do the results last?

Before we get into how long the HydraFacialMD® results can last, let’s discuss tips that can keep your skin radiant and glowing all of the time.

People all of the world have HydraFacialsMD®, treatments and facials at spas like Bella Reina for one reason.

Their skin looks amazing, it feels great and their are gorgeous results.

After any of our incredible facials, you will need to do three things for the results to last. 1. Protect the skin with sunscreen, mineral powder or both. 2. Moisturize with serums and creams to keep the new skin healthy. 3. Hydrate with plenty of water to detox the body and flush out toxins.

The HydraFacial Glow results can last up to 7 days, while the use of LED lights and lymphatic drainage can increase the results. The more advanced treatments can be combined with dermaplaning or microneedling providing even better results.

Is it better than other facials?

There is no doubt about it, the HydraFacialMD® is an amazing treatment with fabulous results. Depending on the type of facial that you receive and the results you are looking for, it is a great option.

The lack of manual extractions which sometimes hurt make this facial a little easier than others.

For relaxing facials with lots of arm, neck and decollete massage, you will find other options here.

Is it better than crystal microdermabrasion?

For years, Bella Reina has not recommended crystal or diamond  microdermabrasion because of the possible damage it can do to the skin. We prefer ultrasonic microdermabrasion because it can gently exfoliate the skin without redness or tenderness.

While microdermabrasion vs. hydrafacial is an ongoing discussion, we prefer to note that each has its merits.

Can other treatments like dermaplaning or microneedling be combined with the HydraFacial?

Dermaplaning and microneedling are quite effective as stand alone treatments. Dermaplaning works great for those that have hair that can clog pores. Both are quite good as an add-on for many aesthetic procedures including the HydrafacialMD®.
