07 Jul HydraFacial 101: Get Instant GlowReading Time: 3 minutes
HydraFacial: Take your glow game to the next level. This 30 minute, 3 step facial cleanses, extracts, and hydrates your skin!
If you’re like me, then at one point or another you’ve wished it was possible to take a mini vacuum sucker to your pores. (And doing it without spending an hour in front of a magnifying mirror studying your skin).
I’m pretty regimented with my skincare routine, but I still have dryness on my nose, excess oil on my forehead and the monthly annoying pimple. I wanted something more than a standard facial; even though they make my skin feel good, I wanted to really give my skin an extra boost as I start wearing less makeup in the summer.
…I thought it was too good to be true! The HydraFacial looked like it left the skin with smaller pores, little to no blackheads and this amazing glowing and smooth skin.
Once I heard about the HydraFacial, I knew my facial dreams were about to come true. I saw before and after images on their Instagram page and I thought it was too good to be true. The HydraFacial left the skin with smaller pores, little to no blackheads and an amazing glowing and smooth skin.
Keep reading along to see what I thought about receiving a Platinum HydraFacial and Lip Perk services.
Warning: You may become addicted to HydraFacials once you get one.
HydraFacial: Facial Lymphatic Therapy
The Platinum HydraFacial begins with a 15 minute lymphatic massage using one of the suctioning wands.
Lymphatic massage is important because lymphs can collect things like fluid, waste, bacteria and dead cells.
The Lymphatic massage help to stimulates the nodes to aid in eliminating these toxins from the body.
Cleanse + Peel
The first step in the each HydraFacial service is the cleanse. The esthetician apply a cleansing liquid onto your skin and then take the suctioning wand to suck up all of the oil, dirt and makeup.
Even though I had washed my face right before the service, I immediately felt like my skin was 10x cleaner and fresher feeling after the HydraFacial cleanse.
Once your skin is cleanse, a liquid peel is applied that will help tighten pores and decrease fine lines.
Extract + Hydrate
The second portion of the HydraFacial is one of my favorite parts.
Your esthetician takes a suctioning wand over your t-zone to help extract black head and any other small imperfections while simultaneously hydrating the skin. You can instantly see the benefits (especially on your nose)! Imagine not using harsh pore strips or having slow manual extractions performed on you.
Fuse + Protect
This is the final portion of the Platinum HydraFacial is where you are able to add a booster serum.
These serums are results driven products to get you one step closer to the skin of your dreams: brighter, less dark spots, plumper, hydrated and less fine lines.
Your Esthetician is able to help determine which booster will be best for you and your overall skin goals.
Where does all of it go?!
Now you may be having the same question I had when getting your face deep cleaned with a vacuuming suction… where does it all go?!
On the back of the HydraFacial machine is a long tube that collects all of your dead skin, oil and debris thats hidden in your pores. The awesome thing about that means your esthetician can analyze more accurately how to customize your at-home products for you whether you’re dry, oily or a combination.
HydraFacial Lip & Eye Perk
The Lip & Eye Perks are a special add-on service that will take your facial to the next level. The lip perk uses a serum that exfoliates and gently plumps lips. Bonus! You get to take the serum home with you, for a month of lip smoothing benefits. The eye perk uses a serum to help give your eyes a bright, hydrated glow.
HydraFacial Final Thoughts
My skin never felt better: glowing, clear and silky smooth.
I was able to put down the foundation, aside from using a concealer, as needed. The natural radiance that it brought my skin has lasted for weeks.
My Esthetician said that it’s best to receive a HydraFacial every month to keep up the high level of results. I will definitely be adding this to my beauty routine now!
