What Exactly Is a Hydrafacial?


Daily life can take a toll on the skin of our face, particularly if we have a busy routine and live in an urban environment. For this reason, it's important to take the time out of your day for a rejuvenation treatment. Here at BevelUp in Tampa, FL, we offer the HydraFacial, a simple and non-invasive method of restoring the smooth, healthy glow of your face.

But what exactly is this treatment, and what will your session look like? If you're considering different options, it's important to know as much as possible about each one. In today's article, you will learn more about this innovative method and how it could help you to rejuvenate your skin, remove impurities, and hydrate your face.

What Exactly Is a Hydrafacial?

When you come to the clinic for your first appointment, we will discuss your needs and draw up an appropriate treatment plan. If we determine that this is the right option for you, we can then talk about whether all of our add-ons are suitable for you and get started.

You don't have to do much to prepare for the session, and the recovery time is very short, so your daily life won't be disrupted by your visit to the clinic. Instead, you get to enjoy a relaxing hour at the spa and then walk out and resume your normal life.

Your Session

This treatment is performed by trained specialists using a handheld device called the HydraPeel tip. To begin with, your face will be cleansed by the practitioner so that there is no debris or excess sebum left. Salicylic and glycolic acids are then used in order to remove the oil and dirt that might be clogging your pores. Although this can already make a big difference to how your face looks, the HydraPeel tip will be used next to augment the results.

Your practitioner will gently draw the device over your face, removing any remaining oil, dirt, and blackheads. Once this is accomplished, we add a serum to your skin, so that it is rehydrated and nourished. This will keep on working once your treatment is complete, which is why you shouldn't wash your face or put on makeup right away.

Preparation and Aftercare

Your treatment is noninvasive, which means that it doesn't involve piercing your skin. For this reason, it's very safe and you won't have to spend a lot of time preparing for the appointment. However, we do ask that you come to the clinic without makeup, so we can get started straight away. It's also helpful to stop acne medication like benzoyl peroxide and to avoid epilating or waxing your skin right before your session.

You should drink lots of water on the day of treatment, as this can augment the hydrating effects. Your skin will be moisturized both from the inside and from the outside, allowing you to achieve excellent results. For the first two weeks after the appointment, you should avoid any harsh skin treatments like chemical peels. Your practitioner can tell you more about what's appropriate after your session and what you might need to avoid.

Your Results

Because the treatment works by removing dirt and blackheads, you will notice the results as soon as your practitioner finishes. You'll be able to see how much clearer your skin looks, and your face will also feel more hydrated. However, since the serum keeps acting once you leave the clinic, you might notice augmented results in the days after your visit to the clinic.

Even after your first session, you will benefit from a marked improvement in how your face looks and feels. However, to get the best results possible, we usually recommend coming in for your Hydrafacial once every month. That way, you can benefit from long-term changes in your appearance, and you won't have to suffer from clogged pores and blackheads again.

Special Features at BevelUp

Here at the clinic, we don't simply offer a standard treatment, but we aim to make your visit an experience you can enjoy. Many of our patients don't have a lot of free time because they might have a busy career or a family, so the appointment with us might be the only time they have to fully focus on themselves. That's why we offer several add-ons to the basic HydraPeel tip session.

We will speak to you about your individual needs and what you hope to achieve, then decide which hydro-jelly or charcoal mask to apply at the end. We can also provide you with a relaxing massage and LED light therapy in order to create a richer and more enjoyable treatment. After your session, you will feel relaxed, rejuvenated, and ready to take on the world once more.

What Can I Expect?

Unlike some other treatments, this option doesn't only address one problem, and you'll notice an overall improvement in your face. Aside from rejuvenating your skin in a completely non-invasive way, you will also lose those impurities that might undermine your naturally beautiful features. The serum provides vital hydration, and the relaxing add-ons will help you to enjoy the experience.

Rejuvenated Skin

The aging process takes a toll on all of us, and it is often sped up by the pollution found in cities, a stressful lifestyle, and too much time in the sun. No matter your current age, it pays off to do something healthy for the skin on your face. Regular treatment can prevent you from developing excessive wrinkles, sagging skin, and other blemishes. If you start early enough, you might be able to slow down the aging process significantly.

Fewer Impurities

The first part of your session will be spent removing all of the excess debris and deposits in your pores. These types of impurities are natural, but they can be very irritating because they change the way your face looks. Fortunately, they are easy to remove by using the HydraPeel tip in combination with the salicylic and glycolic acids.

Hydrated Skin

The second part of the session will be spent applying the hydrating serum so that your face can regain moisture. Many people suffer from dry skin, and this can speed up the aging process because the natural elasticity will be lost. Over time, your body produces fewer natural oils, and in combination with sun exposure, this can cause significant changes in your skin's health. By getting regular treatment, you can prevent issues related to hydration.

A Quick and Easy Treatment

Despite these many benefits, your treatment is quick and easy, with very little preparation time and aftercare needed. The facial itself is likely to take only around half an hour, although the add-ons can lengthen the duration of treatment. You can take this time to rejuvenate not only your skin, but also your mind, as you enjoy the relaxing massage provided by our practitioners.

A Noninvasive Method

Many of our patients come to the clinic saying that they want to do something for their health without undergoing surgery. An invasive procedure can be very effective, but it's not always practical, especially if you have a family or a busy job. Additionally, there are people who aren't eligible because of medical conditions. The HydraFacial is the perfect solution for such people because it doesn't involve any general anesthetic or an overnight stay at the hospital.

The Hydrafacial is a great option for anyone looking to take care of their face and restore the relaxed and radiant appearance of the skin. Your session at the clinic will be quick, and it will allow you to take an hour out of your busy day to spend solely on yourself. Not only will you notice that your face feels healthier, but you will also benefit from hydrated skin and fewer impurities.
