Does A HydraFacial Hurt?
October 8th, 2019 12:39am
“Beauty comes at a price.”
We’ve all heard that saying at one point or another, which is why it’s no wonder that the most common question we get asked is whether or not the HydraFacial is a painful procedure. Given the incredible results that it offers, people often think that there’s got to be a downside to such an effective treatment.
Technological advancements in the dermatology and skincare industry have allowed for more effective treatments that are administered with minimal discomfort. In the case of the HydraFacial, skincare enthusiasts will be happy to know that the treatment is absolutely pain-free, and generally quite relaxing as the Vortex Suction technology can also feel like a mini facial massage.
Unlike other facial treatments that sometimes cause tingling and painful burning sensations, patients can rest assured that the HydraFacial treatment does not hurt, especially when performed by an experienced HydraFacial specialist. Even with the mild acid peels and extractions performed throughout the treatment, there’s very little discomfort associated with it.
To find out exactly what you can expect during and post treatment, read on!
What You Can Expect During Treatment
The HydraFacial follows a strict patented 4-step program that involves cleansing, exfoliating, and extracting your skin of impurities. To help guarantee the best results, antioxidant serums and hyaluronic acid are infused into the skin to help rejuvenate the top layer and bring out the clear-skin results you crave!
Depending on the HydraFacial package that you purchase, mild chemical peels are also used to help with resurfacing the skin which can result in mild tingling. This feeling will typically last for a few minutes but your HydraFacial specialist will ensure that you don’t have too much discomfort associated with that step of the treatment.
In addition to that, your esthetician will also manually remove any blemishes they see that are left behind on your skin. This too will cause little discomfort, especially if your specialist is experienced and gentle during this part of the procedure.
Some packages may also include LED light therapy to help kill any bacteria left behind on your skin, which helps ensure longer lasting results. While some lasers have the reputation of being painful or risk burning the skin, the LED light therapy used during HydraFacial treatments don’t carry those risks.
What You Can Expect Post-Treatment
Immediately after treatment, your complexion may appear a bit rosier than usual, almost like a minor sunburn. This can be a result of the chemical peels and extractions performed throughout the procedure, but luckily this effect will subside after a couple minutes. After that, patients are free to reapply make-up if they wish and carry on with their day.
This is what makes the HydraFacial such a popular treatment -- apart from being pain-free, it also has zero downtime so you can return to your daily routine as you normally would. Apart from that, the next best thing you can expect post-treatment are the smooth and rejuvenated skin results. Your complexion will look visibly brighter and refreshed with the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines drastically reduced -- giving you a more youthful glow.
