Candidates for HydraFacial

Hydrafacial is an excellent choice for individuals of all ages and skin types seeking to improve their skin's overall health and appearance. Ideal candidates include those with dull or uneven skin tone, fine lines, wrinkles, congested pores, or acne-prone skin.

The treatment is particularly beneficial for those who have sensitive skin and may not tolerate more aggressive facial treatments. Hydrafacial is also suitable for individuals looking to maintain a healthy complexion and prevent future skin issues. Whether you have dry, oily, or combination skin, Hydrafacial can be customized to address your specific skin concerns. Additionally, it is a great option for those preparing for a special event or seeking a quick, non-invasive solution to achieve radiant and refreshed skin.

How does the HydraFacial Work?

The HydraFacial has specialized patented technology that forms a “vortex-fusion” set of tips that draw out impurities, exfoliate your skin and infuse critical nourishing serums.

First, your skin is cleansed and degreased. The vortex tips use lactic acid and algae extra to unclog your pores and draw out any impurities in your skin. Hydrafacial is a safe process and does not require any downtime. Yet it’s effective enough to provide a deep clean to your face and pores. Second, we apply a medical grade peel of glycolic and salicylic acids to remove dead and dull skin cells. This exfoliation process leaves your skin brighter, softer and noticeably improved.

Third, we use the patented vortex vacuum extractions which deeply unclogs your pores without pinching and redness you would typically get from extractions or other types of facials. With HydraFacial, your pores get a deep cleaning without the redness, marks or irritation you would normally have with traditional facials. The HydraFacial is ideal for those who have sensitive skin. Finally, we infuse powerful antioxidant serums and peptides to ensure that your face and skin continue to glow long after your treatment is complete.

Results and Longevity of HydraFacial

After a HydraFacial Irvine patients that visit us will notice an immediate improvement in their skin’s hydration, brightness, and overall clarity. Many patients report a radiant, glowing complexion right after the treatment. The results typically include a more even skin tone, reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and minimized pores. These immediate effects make HydraFacial an excellent choice for special events or when you need a quick skin refresh.

The longevity of HydraFacial results can vary depending on your skin type and skincare routine. Generally, the glowing and hydrated effects can last up to a week, with improvements in skin tone and texture lasting longer, typically around four to six weeks. For sustained benefits and optimal skin health, regular monthly treatments are recommended. This ongoing regimen helps maintain the skin's health, keeping it consistently bright, clear, and rejuvenated.
