Healthy skin portrays balance and calmness in life. Our skin is representative of our personality and holds a great deal of importance in our social life. To maintain skin hygiene and health, we have to keep it clean, hydrated and moisturized. Negligence in skincare leads to skin issues and concerns, ranging from sun damage to acne and other severe imperfections. Thus, we need to invest in skin procedures to avoid the possibility of skin issues if we haven’t already developed any. Hydra facials are skin treatments that provide all the care that our skin needs to maintain its suppleness, softness, and youthfulness in the long term.
Skincare is usually the base of healthy-looking and pretty skin. But achieving this is not a piece of cake. One has to stick to strict and extensive skincare routines to ensure skin well-being in the present and future. Developing these skincare routines is easy, but sticking to them religiously is the hardest part of the deal. Moreover, constant sun exposure, tiring routines, poor eating habits, and other day-to-day factors also lead to skin damage. Thus, we require skin treatments to boost, hydrate, exfoliate and deep-clean the skin. Hydra facials have become a popular skin treatment and provide visible results.
How Does Hydra Facial Differ from Traditional Facials?
Unlike traditional facials, a Hydra Facial gently cleanses and rejuvenates the skin from deep within. This is a non-invasive and non-surgical skin treatment done without any pain during or after the treatment. This procedure is an excellent option for people with a wide range of skin concerns, giving your skin many benefits. Over time, skin cells die and shed off. But our pores are also active sites for dead skin cells and sebum storage. These clogged pores can lead to skin issues and complications, i.e., acne breakouts.
Hydra facials provide three major benefits: exfoliation, extraction, and hydration. Unlike harsh scrubs that not only irritate the skin but also cause pore enlargement, hydra facial does not use any aggressive approaches to exfoliate the skin. Instead, this step is carried out gently to unveil a clean and smooth skin surface. After exfoliation, the cellular debris and excess oil are extracted from the pores. Usually, traditional facials use tools to put pressure and extract blackheads, whiteheads, and other impurities from the pores. But hydra facials, an applicator gently extracts the impurities without any squeezing and pressing. These steps clear out the skin from deep within to ensure skin health and well-being.
If stayed unattended, these clogged pores cause acne and become the root cause of skin issues like acne scars, pigmentation, dull texture, uneven skin tone, etc. Hydra facials do not only exfoliate and extract but also hydrate the skin for rejuvenation. The hydrating serums treat dull, tired, and unenergetic skin by refreshing it thoroughly.
Differences between Hydra Facials and Traditional Facials
Following are some of the major differences between hydra facials and regular spa facial treatments:
Cleanse And Peel
Regular facials only target the skin’s outer surface and clean it partially, as these are not enough to reach the cellular debris and excess oil accumulated in the deeper areas of the skin. However, hydra facials gently and effectively cleanse and peel everything out of the skin pores. The procedure starts by cleansing with special concoctions and mixtures that diffuse with the skin and directly target the debris and unwanted impurities. At the same time, a vortex tip exfoliates the skin to reach depth and removes the dead skin layers to ensure an instantly brighter complexion.
Unlike traditional facials, hydra facials use salicylic acid or glycolic acid to extract the stubborn debris that blocks the skin pores. This debris is usually stubborn and does not want to leave our skin. However, these chemical solutions make it easier to eradicate all the dirt present in the deeper layers of the skin.
Extract And Hydrate
Other potential differences between traditional and hydra facials are the extraction intensity and hydration level. Extraction carried out in traditional spa facials is harsh and aggressive. Pressing and squeezing with an applicator or by hand can leave scars, irritate the skin, and cause redness and bruises. However, hydra facials ensure gentleness by carrying out each step with care. Using an extraction wand, your esthetician sucks out the already acid-dissolved debris. The use of chemical solutions makes extraction an easier task. Thus, no squeezing, pulling, or pressing is needed.
Hydra facial cleanses the pores thoroughly and does not irritate, infect, or damage the skin surface while extracting dirt deposits. By using hydra facial treatments, you can avoid the following skin issues:
- Tissue damage due to harsh products
- Pain during treatment because of reaction to sensitive skins
- Red and inflamed skin as a result of squeezing and pressing
- Additional breakouts after using bleach and harmful products
