Let’s talk about one of the most refreshing and rejuvenating skin care treatments, beneficial for skin of all shades – the hydrafacial. And for those of us with melanated skin, this facial can work wonders.

Facials are amazing, but when you’re looking to step up your skin care game, hydrafacials can take your skin to the next level.

We love hydrafacials around here, so we wanted to share what you need to know before making your next skincare appointment for a hydrafacial.

But, with that, please always let your Esthetician guide you on what she/he thinks is most appropriate for your skin before you’re convinced it’s something you need.

So, if your skin is free from any serious irritation, hydrafacials are a true beauty boost for your skin. And, we’re breaking down some of the benefits you can expect and how to maintain your skin after this lovely treatment.

What is a Hydrafacial?

Before we dive into the benefits, let’s first break down what a hydrafacial actually is. A hydrafacial is a treatment with multiple steps that uses an advanced technology to thoroughly cleanse your skin, as well as using it to exfoliate, extract and deeply hydrate the skin with vital serums. The process is extremely beneficial and rejuvenating for your skin as it leaves your skin feeling more nourished and smoother, and definitely more hydrated – hence the name: hydrafacial.

What to Know Before Your Appointment

Now that we’ve got you intrigued, let’s talk about what you need to know before booking your hydrafacial appointment. If you’re using any topical prescription medications like retinoids, be sure to let your esthetician know ahead of time. They may recommend that you stop using these products for a period of time before your hydrafacial, as medications can potentially make your skin more sensitive.

We also recommend that you avoid waxing or using any other exfoliating treatments in the week leading up to your hydrafacial, as this might make your skin more sensitive and increase your skin’s risk of irritation.

The Benefits of a Hydrafacial for Melanated Skin

So, what makes the hydrafacial so great for those of us with darker skin tones?

One of the major benefits of hydrafacials for darker skin tones is that these treatments are highly customizable, which means your Esthetician can tailor the treatment to your specific skin concerns. And, one of our biggest concerns is: hyperpigmentation. Hydrafacials can help address this issue because it uses a combination of serums, exfoliation and hydration to break up and remove dead skin cells that can dull skin. By using the proper serums, exfoliation and hydration together, the hydrafacial works to reveal brighter skin. Additionally, hydrafacials help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by plumping the skin with hydration, infusing it with moisture. Hydrafacials can also help to improve the overall texture of skin by unclogging pores which smooths skin.

Hydrafacials are also a go-to treatment because for all of the amazing benefits and quickly visible results, they are non-invasive and require no downtime, which is a win-win for you, because you can get right back to your regularly scheduled life immediately after your appointment. Unlike other more invasive treatments like chemical peels or laser resurfacing, hydrafacials are gentle enough to use on all skin types.

Additionally, hydrafacials use a unique combination of exfoliation, hydration, and extraction to deep clean and detoxify your skin. This can help to unclog pores, reduce inflammation, and promote a brighter, more clarified complexion.

What to expect during your hydrafacial appointment

When you arrive at your hydrafacial appointment, your Esthetician will first start by cleansing your skin to remove any makeup or impurities. They will then use a special wand, with a serum-infused tip, that suctions and exfoliates your skin. So many good benefits are happening during this process, as it helps to remove dead skin cells, unclog pores, and improve your skin’s texture.

Next up, intense moisture! Once your skin has been thoroughly cleansed and exfoliated, your Esthetician will use the hydrafacial machine to infuse your skin with a hydrating serum that’s jam packed with antioxidants and peptides. This step is all about deeply hydrating your skin which leaves it looking and feeling more plump, nourished and healthy.

After this step, your Esthetician will perform any necessary extractions with the hydrafacial wand, which uses a gentle suction to remove any impurities from your pores.

Finally, your esthetician will finish up by applying a customized serum and moisturizer to your skin. This will help to lock in the benefits of the hydrafacial and leave your skin looking radiant and glowing.

Overall, a hydrafacial is a quick, painless, and effective way to refresh and rejuvenate your skin.

Post-Facial Care

So, you’ve just had a hydrafacial, and your skin is looking and feeling amazing – now what? It’s important to follow your Esthetician’s instructions for what they suggest for your at-home post-treatment care. They may suggest you avoid direct sunlight for a few days, or guide you on using a gentle cleanser and moisturizer, while avoiding any harsh exfoliating products. It’s important to follow your Esthetician’s recommendations if they provide you with instructions.

To maintain the benefits of your hydrafacial over time, it’s recommended that you schedule regular treatments every 4-6 weeks. Your esthetician can help you create a customized skincare plan that addresses your specific concerns and helps you achieve your skincare goals.
