HydraFacial MD® vs Microdermabrasion – What is HydraFacial MD® Good for?
HydraFacial MD®, which is Hydradermabrasion, is a gentler microdermabrasion facial. Its main purpose is to hydrate the skin immediately after removing dead skin cells.
Your pores are first unclogged using a vacuum that sucks up the dirt and oil. Then, the patented Vortex-Fusion® serum delivery system fills your clean pores with serums that contain vital nutrients, antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid. Different serums are used to treat different issues, such as age spots, acne, wrinkles, thin lies, and discoloration.
HydraFacial MD® is perfect for those who find microdermabrasion too painful or irritating. It works on ALL skin types.
How does HYDRAFACIAL® work?
The unique Vortex-Fusion® serum delivery system is what sets the HydraFacial MD® apart from other procedures. The multi-step treatment cleanses, evenly exfoliates and extracts to remove impurities and dead skin cells while at the same time replenishing vital nutrients including Antioxidants, Peptides and Hyaluronic Acid.
HydraFacial MD® takes about 30 minutes to 45 minutes to complete. First, a device that looks like an electric toothbrush is used to open up your pores.
Next comes a salicylic acid peel to de-clog your pores. This peel is much more gentle than a traditional chemical peel.
Then a vortex-extraction nozzle, which looks and sounds like a vacuum, sucks the dirt and oil out of your pores.
Finally, the vortex infusion tool fills the empty pores with revitalizing serums.
What should I expect During and After HydraFacial MD®
Before the treatment begins, the med spa professional tests your skin to see which blend of serums will yield the best results. The process itself is quite pleasant. People prefer Hydradermabrasion over traditional dermabrasion mostly because of how it feels.
There is no pinching and pulling. The vortex-extraction nozzle has a low suction that is more pleasant than painful. Many say it feels like a light massage. The serums cause a momentary tingle as they settle in your pores, but even those with sensitive skin report no burning.
HydraFacial MD® Side Effects
The best part of HydraFacial MD® is the lack of post-session side effects. Some people experience redness and skin tightness for about an hour after the procedure, but those cases are rare. You can resume your normal skin routine immediately after you leave the med spa. Put on makeup without fear of irritation.
According to Sameer Bashey, a Dermatology instructor at the University of Southern California, HydraFacial MD® is “a medical-grade Hydradermabrasion device that carries out a patented 3-part regimen - cleansing, exfoliating, and then infusing the skin with intensive serums.”
