But before considering this treatment option, here’s what you should know about it first.
So, What Is Hydrafacial?
The American business Edge Systems LLC created the non-invasive multi-step therapy known as HydraFacial. Since its inception in 1997, the treatment has undergone numerous iterations to refine it and add cutting-edge skincare technology and ingredients.
Hydradermabrasion, the basis for the HydraFacial treatment, combines the advantages of microdermabrasion with the injection of skin-specific serums. The unique HydraFacial Vortex-Fusion technology is used in the treatment. It combines a soft vacuum and spiral motion to wash, exfoliate, extract, and moisturize the skin.
The HydraFacial treatment allows aestheticians to carry out a complete face treatment in a single session. Due to its effectiveness in improving the skin’s brightness and firmness quickly, the service has become increasingly popular, and most people consider the treatment either right before a big event or regularly to keep their skin in good condition.
How Does Hydrafacial Work?
The multi-step facial cleans, exfoliates, extracts, and hydrates the skin using microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and infusion of skin-specific serums. It’s a one-of-a-kind therapy that works on all skin types and can be tailored to treat specific issues, including wrinkles, acne, discoloration, and more.
The treatment begins with a gentle skin cleansing to remove makeup and impurities. Next, the HydraFacial Vortex-Fusion device is used to exfoliate the skin, removing dead skin cells and preparing the skin for the infusion of serums. The device combines a gentle vacuum and spiral motion to cleanse, exfoliate, extract, and hydrate the skin.
The exfoliation step uses a diamond tip that gently removes dead skin cells, revealing the healthy, youthful skin underneath. The device also uses a vacuum-like motion to extract impurities and debris from the pores, while a spiral action helps to hydrate the skin.
After the exfoliation and extraction step, specialized serums are infused into the skin. These serums are tailored to the individual’s specific skin concerns. They may include antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, and peptides to hydrate and plump the skin, reduce the formation of fine lines and wrinkles, and improve skin tone and texture.
The HydraFacial treatment concludes with a final infusion of hydrating and protecting solutions, leaving the skin looking and feeling refreshed, hydrated, and revitalized.
What Are The Effects Of Hydrafacial On Your Skin?
Edge Systems, the company behind HydraFacial, claims that the treatment can give you the best skin you’ve ever had in your entire life. While this claim may be an exaggeration, the HydraFacial treatment does offer several significant benefits for the complexion.

While it may not necessarily give you the “best skin you’ve ever had,” as the company claims, it can significantly improve your skin’s appearance.
What Does The Science Say?
The efficacy of the HydraFacial treatment has been the subject of an increasing body of scientific investigation. The therapy has been shown in studies to improve the skin’s appearance by stimulating collagen formation and decreasing the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles.
- In 2016, the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology published a study showing that six HydraFacial treatments improved skin hydration, pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, and skin texture.
- The look of fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, and skin texture improved after a series of six HydraFacial treatments, and collagen formation was boosted, according to a 2018 study published in the Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology.
- The look of fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation, skin texture, and moisture levels were all enhanced after a single HydraFacial treatment, according to a study published in the Journal of Cosmetic and Laser Therapy in 2018.
The HydraFacial treatment has been shown to be safe and effective in clinical trials, with positive effects on skin texture, hydration levels, fine lines, and wrinkles, and the stimulation of collagen synthesis.
The HydraFacial procedure has a solid reputation for being a risk-free, well-tolerated skincare treatment. Of course, as with any medical or aesthetic operation, undesirable consequences are always possible.
The HydraFacial treatment has specific potential hazards and side effects, such as:
- Redness or irritation: The treatment may cause temporary redness or irritation of the skin, which should resolve within a few hours after the treatment.
- Acne flare-up: Extracting impurities from the pores during the treatment may cause a temporary outbreak of acne.
- Allergic reactions: Rarely some people may be allergic to the products used during the treatment.
- Infection: If the equipment used during the treatment is not properly sterilized, there is a risk of disease.
- Scarring: In rare cases, improper technique during the extraction process can cause scarring.
These are uncommon and often avoidable by following aftercare instructions, using high-quality materials, and performing the procedure by a competent provider.
