HydraFacial MD is quickly becoming one of the most popular facial treatments in the world, and for good reason! Here are the top 5 reasons why you should try HydraFacial at your next appointment:
IS HydraFacial like Microdermabrasion?
1. HydraFacial is like microdermabrasion, but better!
Technically, it’s called hydradermabrasion. We’ll dive into the details in a minute, but first, let’s take a look at traditional microdermabrasion:
Microdermabrasion is a facial treatment that blasts sand-like crystals over the surface of your skin, and has a dry, gritty feel to it. Basically, it’s like the sandblasting treatment that old cars are given before they’re ready for a new coat of paint. Does this sound appealing to you? Yeah, we don’t think so either.
Hydradermabrasion, on the other hand, utilizes liquid serums and a gentle vacuum to provide skin-friendly exfoliation and resurfacing with no pain or down-time. An easy way to visualize this technology is to think about those handy carpet cleaning machines that we’re all familiar with: the cleaning solution goes in, saturates the area being cleaned, and is vacuumed right back up along with all the dirt and debris that were previously stuck in the carpet. HydraFacial is basically the same technology, but for your skin!
Will HydraFacial help acne?
2. HydraFacial will cleanse and extract your pores without any painful squeezing.
Yep, that’s right! You can say goodbye to an hour of pimple-popping torture and trade it for gentle, effective extractions with HydraFacial. According to the HydraFacial website, “The spiral design of HydroPeel® Tips, used in conjunction with proprietary vacuum technology and serums, creates a vortex effect to easily dislodge and remove impurities while simultaneously delivering hydrating skin solutions.” This treatment l is so effective at removing impurities from your skin that you can even see the “gunk” that was removed from your pores at the end of your treatment.

Are HydraFacials good for my skin type ?
3. Most likely! This treatment doesn’t have a “type.”
This facial treatment is great for patients of all ages and complexions, and can address all common skincare concerns. Your HydraFacialist can help you customize your treatment to target fine lines and wrinkles, rough texture, brown spots, enlarged pores, or oily and congested skin. Most clients also see an improvement in elasticity, firmness, and vibrancy.
Although this is a treatment we’d recommend to just about everyone, there are a few circumstances in which we might recommend postponing your appointment. If you’re pregnant or nursing, have a sunburn, or have an active skin rash or infection, it’s best to skip this treatment for now.
Is HydraFacial customizable?
4. YES! Your experience will always be both familiar and fresh at the same time. (Does #relationshipgoals apply to skincare?)
All HydraFacial treatments include 3 signature steps: cleanse + peel, extract + hydrate, and fuse + protect. So, no matter what level you choose, you’ll be getting the same HydraFacial experience you know and love every time.
What’s even better, though, is that HydraFacial is infinitely customizable beyond those 3 steps. Your Hydrafacialist can help you select add-ons like lymphatic drainage, LED light therapy, eye and lip “perks,” and medical-grade boosters depending on what your skin needs on the day of your treatment.
Is HydraFacial worth it?
5. HydraFacial treatments are surprisingly affordable!
At Affinity, our prices range from $175 to $275, depending on the customizations and perks you add to your treatment. While this price may seem expensive for a “facial,” it’s important to remember that it is so much more than that! It would take a combination of three or more treatments over the course of a few weeks (think microdermabrasion + chemical peel + facial) to get the same results that you’ll get with just ONE HydraFacial treatment. When you look at it from that perspective, you’re getting a pretty amazing deal.
