The patented HydraFacial skin treatment is available at Bella Medspa! This popular in-office facial treatment uses gentle exfoliation paired with hydrating serums to deep-clean and rejuvenate your skin. As a result, the dead skin cells along the surface of your face fall away, revealing bright, radiant, and hydrated skin.

If you want to reduce the appearance of fine lines, remove dead skin cells, and plump your skin, the HydraFacial treatment may be right for you. Enjoy beautiful, radiant skin in just 30 minutes with this cutting-edge hydradermabrasion treatment.


HydraFacial Benefits

The HydraFacial can be used to even skin texture, reduce discoloration and breakouts, and brightens your appearance, leaving you with a radiant skin tone. This resurfacing treatment is safe for most skin types, including those with sensitive skin.

Additional benefits of HydraFacials include:

  • No downtime. The HydraFacial is a safe outpatient procedure that does not require any special preparation. A dermatology professional can complete this treatment in just under 30 minutes and you can return to your normal activities quickly. Plus, HydraFacial patients experience little to no irritation, meaning that you do not have to deal with unsightly redness for days following the procedure.
  • Near-immediate results. Unlike other resurfacing procedures, which may require healing time, the HydraFacial works almost instantly on your skin. You can experience improved skin texture, vanished blackheads, and improved hydration and rejuvenation.
  • Personalized experiences. With the HydraFacial, you can customize your treatment to include certain add-ons, known as boosters. For example, the Circadia Chrono-Peptide Booster reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, energizing the skin. The Hydrafacial Regen GF Booster improves collagen and elastin production, removing toxins from the skin.
  • Less-congested pores. Impurities clogged in our pores can contribute to breakouts and unsightly acne. With a HydraFacial treatment, you can remove the dirt, oil, and grease that have collected in your pores using thorough deep-clean technology. As a result, you can enjoy healthier, more radiant skin.
  • No irritation. Unlike other chemical peels and traditional extractions, the HydraFacial soothes and hydrates your skin as it works. With other facial methods, your skin can feel red and irritated for up to 24 hours. But since HydraFacial works immediately and does not irritate the skin, you can continue with your regular activities immediately—you can even put on makeup! This feature makes the HydraFacial excellent for big events, like weddings.
  • Consistent outcomes. The HydraFacial technology is patented by HydraFacial itself. This means that all of the serums, add-ons, boosters, and other materials used by your Bella Medspa esthetician come directly from the manufacturer. As a result, HydraFacials produce more consistent results and you will receive a high-quality treatment each and every time.
  • Enhanced effects. On their own, microdermabrasion and moisturizing antioxidant serums provide many benefits for the skin. HydraFacial combines the power of these treatments in one effective procedure, producing science-backed benefits. In fact, one study found that combining microdermabrasion with an antioxidant serum increased skin thickness and collagen production in only six weeks. Plus, participants' antioxidant levels increased by 32%.

The HydraFacial can benefit many skin conditions, from deep lines and wrinkles to old acne scars. However, some patients should abstain from HydraFacials to avoid further skin damage. If you have active rashes, sunburns, or rosacea, HydraFacials can cause further damage and flare-ups. If you are pregnant, you may also want to avoid HydraFacials—salicylic acid and other active ingredients have not been proven safe for use during pregnancy.


How the HydraFacial Skin Care Procedure Works

Also known as hydradermabrasion, the HydraFacial procedure combines microdermabrasion-like exfoliation with hydrating serums. The simple three-step process works to exfoliate, deep-clean, and hydrate your skin, removing impurities with little downtime. This system cleanses, extracts, and hydrates your skin more effectively than traditional chemical peels.

Here's what to expect when you visit Bella Medspa for the HydraFacial treatment:

  • First, your esthetician will move a vortex wand across your skin's surface. This tool will remove impurities clogged deep in your pores, such as blackheads . The esthetician will also use chemical peels to exfoliate your skin.
  • Next, your esthetician will use a vaccuum-like attachment with the wand. This will extract additional impurities from your pores, revealing radiant skin.
  • Finally, the procedure will conclude with moisturizing antioxidant serums. Your esthetician will replace the vacuum with a pen-like attachment to apply serums packed with ingredients like glycolic and hyaluronic acid on your skin.
  • Your esthetician may follow your HydraFacial with add-on treatments, such as dermal fillers or light therapy using LED light. You can choose to purchase these add-ons to treat skin concerns before your first appointment.

Your esthetician at Bella Medspa will then provide you with aftercare instructions and recommendations. Depending on your skin type, you may need to attend follow-up treatments to reach your goals.

For the first few days after your HydraFacial, avoid other exfoliating treatments. Although redness, peeling, or other signs of irritation are uncommon, the HydraFacial is a treatment that involves significant exfoliation. Studies show that over-exfoliation can harm your skin by damaging your skin barrier, causing redness and irritation.


How to Prepare for a HydraFacial

Like all cosmetic procedures, preparation is key for improving the effectiveness of your HydraFacial. Before your HydraFacial, the Bella Medspa staff will create a treatment plan based on your skin condition. This plan will include information on your skincare routine, treatments to take to prepare for the HydraFacial, and what to avoid before and after the procedure.

Taking steps to avoid exfoliation, limit sun exposure, and modifying your skincare routine can help your skin soak up the antioxidant benefits of the targeted serums and add-ons. Although everyone's skin is different, the following guidelines can improve your HydraFacial experience.

  • At least 6 months before your first HydraFacial, stop taking isotretinoin. This acne medication may not be safe to use in conjunction with HydraFacial's targeted serums and exfoliation. If you recently took or are currently taking isotretinoin, speak to an esthetician at Bella Medspa.
  • 2 weeks before your first HydraFacial, avoid laser treatments, chemical peels, or dermal fillers.
  • 1 week before your treatment, do not schedule Botox appointments before your HydraFacial. You can schedule a Botox appointment for the day of your HydraFacial, but you will need to get it after the procedure.
  • At least 3 days before your HydraFacial, avoid tanning and sun exposure as much as possible. If you do have to be outside in the sun, always wear sunscreen with an SPF of at least 35. If you have fair skin, you may need a stronger sunscreen formulation. Speak to an esthetician at Bella Medspa to receive a recommendation.
  • 2 days before your HydraFacial, stop using all over-the-counter acne medications or acne treatments, including salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. You should also avoid waxing your face or using any exfoliating treatment, such as glycolic acid or enzyme-based exfoliants. You should also avoid any tretinoin products.
  • The day of your HydraFacial, do not shave your face. If you feel like you must shave, make sure to do it at least 3 to 4 hours before your appointment. Before your appointment, ask your Bella Medspa esthetician if they can recommend a cleanser to wash your face before and after treatment. Some ingredients can be irritating, so it is important to plan your skincare routine in advance.
  • Remember, these are general guidelines. If your Bella Medspa esthetician recommends a different treatment plan, follow their advice.
