Hydration truly is the essence of life.
This treatment reduces wrinkles and fine lines, sun damage, acne, and nasal folds, by removing dead cells and impurities while bathing new skin with cleaning, hydrating and moisturizing skin solutions.
Treatment is soothing, refreshing, non-irritating and immediately effective for all skin types.
If microdermabrasion sounds a bit too intense for your skincare needs, you may be pleased to hear about hydradermabrasion treatment! While both hydradermabrasion and microdermabrasion are minimally invasive treatments, hydradermabrasion is less so. As such, our medical estheticians at La Vie Medspa would be pleased to provide either option to you, depending on your skincare needs. To give you a better idea of what hydradermabrasion is, we have provided some answers to commonly asked questions about hydradermabrasion treatment below!
What is a Hydradermabrasion treatment?
A hydradermabrasion treatment is an alternative to microdermabrasion, which uses microcrystals to exfoliate the surface layer of skin and clear out clogged pores. In contrast, hydradermabrasion cleanses, exfoliates, and hydrates the skin with a far gentler process.
There are three phases to a hydradermabrasion treatment, with the first phase consisting of a cleanse and a peel of your skin, the second phase exfoliating and hydrating your skin, and the third phase infusing and protecting your skin.
In the first phase, the medical esthetician or dermatologist uses a diamond-tipped pen to gently exfoliate and resurface the outer layer of skin in the treatment area, clearing away dirt and oil from deep in your pores in the process. A serum may then be applied, which functions as a skin peel.
In the second phase, your provider will use a handheld, vacuum-like device to suction away debris from your pores. Once the debris has been sufficiently removed, they will apply water-based moisturizers to your skin to hydrate and nourish the skin.
Finally, in the third phase, your provider will administer various serums containing peptides, antioxidants, and other skincare ingredients, depending on your specific needs to provide further benefits and protect the skin from damage.
With that in mind, hydradermabrasion can be used to treat the following skin issues or conditions:
- Acne and acne scars
- Congested or enlarged pores
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Overly oily skin
Is Hydradermabrasion the same as HydraFacial?
Yes! Hydradermabrasion treatments are also referred to as hydrafacial treatments. As such, if you know what a hydrafacial treatment consists of, then you also know about hydradermabrasion treatments!
How long do the results of a Hydradermabrasion last?
In general, the results of a hydradermabrasion treatment, or hydrafacial, lasts between five and seven days. However, many individuals experience even longer-lasting results from hydradermabrasion treatment, especially when treatment is also accompanied by a healthy skin care routine focused on protecting and moisturizing your skin. With that in mind, hydradermabrasion treatments are typically recommended once every two to four weeks to maintain results.
What are the benefits of Hydradermabrasion?
There are numerous benefits to hydradermabrasion, both on its own and when compared with microdermabrasion. While microdermabrasion is more suited to individuals with intense skincare needs, hydradermabrasion is a better option for younger individuals or those with minor skin issues. As such, whereas microdermabrasion requires significant healing time after the procedure, hydradermabrasion does not require any downtime, although neither procedure is invasive.
Other benefits of hydradermabrasion include the following:
- Boost cell turnover for healthier, rejuvenated skin
- Clear out congested pores
- Eliminate enlarged pores
- Improved skin elasticity, firmness, tone, and texture
- Increased hydration and blood circulation in the treatment area
- Minimal to no pain or discomfort
- Minimized appearance of brown spots, discoloration, fine lines, and wrinkles
- Reduced inflammation, puffiness, and redness
- Safe for all skin types
