Prepare For My HydraFacial

You did it, you finally booked your first HydraFacial treatment! If it’s your first time in the spa chair, you’re probably both anxious and excited to try out the skincare treatment beauty enthusiasts have been raving about. 

Luckily for you, since this treatment is completely noninvasive, so you have little to worry about heading into your appointment. But to make sure you get the most out of it, here’s everything you need to do to prepare yourself for your HydraFacial session: 

When Should I Get A HydraFacial?

Before we dive into how to prepare for a treatment, a common question we often get asked is -- when should I get one? 

Frankly, there’s never a bad time for good skincare! When you decide to get one and how often you get them depends on a number of factors including your budget, your skin and how well you take care of it. 

In an ideal world, skincare professionals agree that getting HydraFacials every 3-4 weeks is ideal. It provides just enough time for your skin to heal and rebuild itself in between sessions. 

If that’s not possible because of financial reasons, consider getting a HydraFacial twice a year. Once at the start of spring and another at the beginning of winter. This way, you give your skin the opportunity to reset through a nourishing treatment. Getting a HydraFacial during these times of year will allow you to enter each season with confidence and a clear complexion! 

How Do I Prepare For My Hydrafacial?

Whether you’ve never had a HydraFacial before or you’ve had plenty, one of the major benefits to the treatment is that there isn’t much to prepare for ahead of it. No matter which patient you are, here’s what you need to keep in mind: 

If This Is Your First Treatment

If you’re currently taking retinol or any retinoid, we advise that patients stop taking it a week prior to their treatment. This helps ensure that the skin isn’t so sensitive heading into the session. It’s also highly recommended that patients come into their appointment with no make-up. The clean canvas helps with the cleansing processes and can help improve treatment results. 

If You Get Treatments Regularly

If you’re someone who gets HydraFacials regularly, the only thing you really need to be mindful of is making sure that you allow your skin to heal in-between treatments. In order to do that, you need to make sure you give yourself 3-4 weeks between appointments to rest your skin. If you’re unsure, your skincare specialist will be able to guide you appropriately and ensure you’re booking your appointments far apart enough for it to be effective. The last thing you want to do is irritate your skin, and worsen the awesome results you’ve achieved. 

Lastly, the best way to prepare for any HydraFacial treatment is making sure you go to a reputable spa. Ideally, go to a medical spa where they specialize in the treatment and can ensure satisfactory results. If you want to make sure you’re in the best hands, book your HydraFacial treatment with Clinique De Mode, one of Toronto’s leading medical spas. They don’t offer a buffet of treatments like most clinics, but instead specialize in the industry’s most lucrative skincare treatments, so they can confidently say they’re a master at their craft. This specialization is important as it helps guarantee great customer experience and satisfaction. Contact us today to book the best HydraFacial in Toronto!
