Hydra facials have become a buzzword in the beauty industry, with many nicknaming it the ‘Hollywood treatment.’ But is this facial worth the celebrity hype?
If your skin is looking tired, dull and congested; keep reading to find out why getting a hydrating facial is the best thing you can do for your skin.
What is a hydrating facial?
A hydrating facial, also known as a hydra facial, is a treatment designed to give your skin a boost of healthy hydration.
This non-invasive facial follows three simple steps – cleansing, extracting, and hydrating – to give you immediate results. The treatment uses a dermabrasion device which gently cleanses and vacuums pores to extract and clear impurities, while rehydrating the skin with serums and moisturizers.
It’s a facial that most people can enjoy and see instant results from, whether you’re concerned about anti-aging or acne treatment. However, if your skin is dry or dull, you’ll especially benefit from a hydra facial as the serums applied will rehydrate and nourish your skin, leaving you with a radiant glow.
How much is a hydra facial?
Prices for hydra facials can vary depending on where you live or the length of treatment on offer. However, you can expect to pay anything from $50 to $150 for a hydrating facial. Or you can use the ClassPass app for beauty treatments from as little as 30 credits.
How often should you get a hydra facial?
It is safe for many skin types to get a hydra facial every two weeks. However, many skin specialists recommend getting the treatment once a month, or every four weeks, for the best results.
How long does a hydra facial appointment last?
The great thing about a hydra facial appointment is, if you’re short on time, you can squeeze this treatment in on your lunch break! Hydrating facials can take as little as 30 minutes.
Depending on additional brightening treatments on offer, you can expect most hydra facial appointments to take 30 to 60 minutes.
After your hydra facial, you can expect to see noticeable results for at least seven days.
The top benefits of a hydra facial
There are many benefits of a hydra facial including brightened complexion, pore size reduction, hydration, less flaky skin and reducing fine lines. Not only do you get all of these benefits, but hydrating facials are also non-invasive and pain free.
Brightens complexion for glowing skin
Hydra facials cleanse and exfoliate the pores to remove debris which allows the hydration serums applied to penetrate deeper into the skin. This evens out tone and leaves your skin looking brighter and nourished. Your skin will be left with a healthy glow.
Reduces appearance of enlarged pores
Even if you cleanse daily, make up, pollution, and dirt can make our pores feel congested and look enlarged. A hydra facial non-invasively extracts the impurities out of your pores, reducing their appearance and giving you a clearer complexion.
Immediate hydration results for dry and flaky skin
Many of us struggle with dry and flaky skin, especially in the winter and colder months. Hydra facials give your skin a blast of hydration with instantly noticeable results. Your skin will feel moisturized and look healthier with less dryness.
Effective anti-aging treatment
When our skin is dehydrated, it can look dull and prematurely aged. Hydration is one of the most important ways to keep your skin looking healthy, plump and glowing. A hydra facial will enhance your skin’s youthfulness without intense treatment in just 30 minutes!
It is non-invasive and pain-free
Unlike manual pore extractions, hydra facials gently vacuum the congested dirt and oils from your skin, so you don’t have to worry about redness or sensitivity after the treatment. Hydrating facials are a pain-free way to hydrate and brighten up your skin.
Gives you time for self-care
Life is very busy and it’s easy to forget to take time for self-care. Hydra facials are very soothing and provide you the perfect opportunity to take a break from your screen and relax! You’ll leave feeling refreshed in mind, body and soul.
What to do after a hydra facial?
Another great thing about a hydra facial is you aren’t required to follow special steps after the treatment.
However, you may be asked to not wash your face for at least 8-12 hours to let the hydrating serums soak into your skin fully. Other than that, you’re free to go about your day with your new glow!
Hydrating facials can be beneficial for most skin types to give the skin a much needed boost of hydration and vibrancy. They’re a non-invasive and pain-free way to unclog congested pores for brighter, healthier looking skin.
