What is a Hydrofacial?
This New Facial Treatment is the Most Popular Facial at Innovations and for good reason
For those still unfamiliar with a Hydro-Facial, here’s the scoop: It’s a Clinical-grade hydro-dermabrasion device that delivers a three-step regimen.
- Cleansing – a deep facial cleansing removing dead skin cells
- Exfoliating – A mixture of skin-safe acids are applied to break up all of the dirt, oils, blackheads, and anything else that shouldn’t be there and then are vacuumed out.
- Infusing — Your skin is then infused with serums formulated for your specific skin-type and needs, which hydrates and nourishes your face.
Wait? Hydro-dermabrasion? Yes. Rather than blasting the skin with an abrasive, like a typical traditional dermabrasion, this gentler approach vacuums out pores while simultaneously pushing in powerful actives, which moisturize, brighten, plump, and protect. The machine’s handpiece holds specialized treatment tips equipped with “a vortex like technology” In addition to the three steps, targeted add-ons, or boosters, which take aim at unique skin concerns, like brown spots or fine lines can be added as needed.

Do Hydrofacials hurt? Is recovery time needed?
Extractions without side effects
How many times have you told an esthetician to forgo the extractions for fear of redness or breakouts the next day or because it can be uncomfortable? The Hydro-Facial has a strict no-torment policy. In fact, guests compare the sensation to a light facial massage. By combining vortex pressure with a customized clog-purging cocktail of products/boosters, our guests can observe visible results immediately following the service. Side effects: Mild temporary Redness followed by; Bright! Smooth! Glowing! Skin.
While somewhat similar to micro-needling, HydroFacials are more tolerable and less intimidating.
Can I get a hydrofacial if I’ve had Botox or other facial treatments?
It fits perfectly with other facial procedures
Yes! A Hydro-facial does play well with others. You can receive most Injectables, Radio Frequency Skin Tightening, LED therapy and more after a Hydro-Facial session.
It’s very customizable
The boosters mentioned above, are just one way technicians can customize this treatment to really focus on the guest skin care priorities. Ex. Following a hydro-facial your skin care professional could add a brief LED light therapy session to build collagen-red light or a calming-blue light treatment following an acne treatment.
