6 Benefits of HydraFacial Treatment

Globally, a HydraFacial is performed every 15 seconds. Essentially, about 20 million people get HydraFacials each year.

HydraFacial treatment uses patented technology to clean, extract, and hydrate your skin. So how does it work? It clears dead skin cells, loosens your pores, and prepares them for removal using a mixture of salicylic acid, botanical extracts, and glycolic acid. After that, a vacuum-powered extraction method is used to extract gunk from your skin painlessly.

During this treatment, your doctor at Fairbanks Med Spa in Rancho Santa Fe uses a double-helix vortex treatment wand. One of this device’s chamber extracts dead cells and dirt from your skin while the other pumps soothing nutrients such as Vitamin C, growth factors, and hyaluronic acid into the skin.

The treatment basically prepares your skin for deeper penetration. More extensive procedures include Oxygen, LED light therapy, and boosters. We compiled a list of some of the reasons people love HydraFacial treatments in Rancho Santa Fe.

1.No Downtime

This is one of the significant benefits of this treatment. In just 30 minutes, you get a clearer and more radiant look devoid of irritation. Besides, you will not need any special preparation, and you can jump right into your routine soon after the treatment. As if things couldn’t get any better, visible pores will reduce, and your skin will be firmer, brighter, and with a better texture.

2.Suitable for Sensitive Skin

HydraFacial treatments do not use pore-softening steam. This way, they do not cause excessive redness that results from dilated blood vessels in your skin. Because of this, they are gentle, even on the most sensitive skin. Since the treatment features vacuum-powered extraction instead of manual squeezing of skin, no inflammation is experienced. A HydraFacial can also be customized and dialed-in for numerous skin concerns to suit the patient’s needs. It can work on people of different ages. However, people with active sunburns, rushes, or rosacea shouldn’t opt for this treatment option.


If you are afraid of undergoing this treatment because you think it is painful, cast your worries away.  First, the treatment wand is smooth, and its tips are made of plastic. With each swipe of the wand, liquid is deposited so you won’t feel skin pulling or scraping. Also, the procedure doesn’t involve pinching, needling, or abrasion. In short, the treatment is gentle on your face and in no way causes unpleasant reactions or uncomfortable burning. In fact, most patients have reported enjoying the whole process and feeling relaxed.

It would be essential to remember that gentle acids are used in HydraFacial treatment, so expect some slight tingling.

4.Younger-looking and Glowing Skin

The effect that a HydraFacial has on fine lines and visible pores will be noticeable immediately. You will experience enhanced firmness, improved complexion, and texture, and your blackheads will vanish. Overall, there is a wide range of skincare needs that a HydraFacial can address, including:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Firmness and elasticity
  • Vibrancy and even tone
  • Skin texture
  • Brown spots
  • Oily skin
  • Enlarged pores

Hydrafacial treatment produces consistent and reliable results. It is safe and improves your skin’s current condition. By providing your skin with moisture, antioxidants, and essential vitamins, the treatment helps fight early-aging signs. It is also environment-friendly and protects from harmful free radicals.


The HydraFacial serum ingredients can be customized to target specific issues from black spots and sunburns to brightening your skin tone. Depending on your needs, your skincare professional can calibrate your treatment to achieve your desired results.

6.Works Well With Other Procedures

This is especially critical to people who are undergoing other procedures. Some people can’t leave the dermatologist’s office without topping up their dermal fillers with a HydraFacial, so this is a pretty convenient treatment. The procedure can be performed on the same day as non-abrasive laser and light treatments and injectables.

Bottom Line

A HydraFacial is such a popular treatment because you achieve great results without undergoing any pain or experiencing side effects linked to deep skin treatments. It takes only 30 minutes, so you won’t have to spend the whole day at the dermatologist’s. Besides, who doesn’t want instant results?
