The HydraFacial Process
What is a HydraFacial?
HydraFacial is a hydradermabrasion facial combining cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration and antioxidant defense in a non-invasive process., resulting in clearer, more attractive skin with no irritation or downtime. The treatment is relaxing, moisturizing, non-invasive and non-irritating, unlike Botox. It is developed to decrease the presence of fine lines, wrinkles, clogged and enlarged pores, oily or acne-prone skin, hyperpigmentation, and brown spots.
Steps to a HydraFacial in Tulsa, OK (as told by a spa patron):
Step 1: Detoxifying and exfoliation.
The specialist uses a small “deplaning” tool that opens pores and clears the top layer of makeup fragments and dead skin cells away. It feels like a spinning toothbrush was being run over my face.
Step 2: Acid peel.
Most glycolic peels leave your skin stinging for a few minutes until they’re washed off, but not this one. The glycolic/salicylic acid peel is gentle enough that it only creates the faintest tingle.
Step 3: Extractions.
If you’re the sort of person who delights in seeing what is brought out of your clogged pores, this is the part of the treatment you’ll be in love with. As opposed to performing manual extractions, the technician uses something rather elaborately called a vortex-extraction nozzle that acts as a vacuum. The sucking sound it makes is oddly satisfying, but the best (or the worst?) part is the cup at the base of the machine that shows exactly what was extracted– and it’s more than you think. This extraction is not painful at all so don’t think it’s like a tooth extraction!
Step 4: Serum application.
This step uses the vortex-fusion tool, which infuses an antioxidant-and-collagen-rich serum into the skin to promote elasticity and hydration.
