HydraFacial session

HydraFacial session

HydraFacial is one of the latest global technologies reached in the world of cosmetology. It is a non-surgical device that combines the characteristics of chemical peeling and crystal peeling. It has the ability to clean the pores of the skin and exfoliate the dead layer of the skin in addition to moisturizing the skin by injecting it with antioxidant serums. HydraFacial technology also contributes to the treatment of acne and the treatment of dry skin and works to get rid of wrinkles and signs of aging of the skin, in order to obtain pure skin from impurities and soft as silk.

How HydraFacial Works

HydraFacial technology softens and soothes the skin and removes the outer layer of the skin. This process is carried out in several stages:

  • Stage 1: The session begins with the removal of oil, dust, accumulated dirt and dead cells using the device handle in the first stage of treatment.
  • The second stage: After finishing the cleaning, the specialist exfoliates the skin by pumping glycol and salicylic acids through the handle of the device, as this handle is characterized by its spiral shape, which enables the device to pump and suction at the same time.
  • The third stage: After the completion of the exfoliation process and getting rid of the damaged layer of skin, the last stage of treatment is started, which is treating the skin with antioxidants, where the specialist pumps nutrients and antioxidants into the pores through the hydrafacial device, and antioxidants work to protect the skin from dryness in order to stay moist and smooth .

After the exfoliation process, the skin begins to build new, younger skin tissue. The inner layers of the skin are stimulated to produce collagen and elastin proteins. These proteins tighten the skin and increase the firmness and smoothness of the skin. These proteins also eliminate the signs of aging. The process of building new proteins lasts for three months.

Usually, the doctor or specialist determines the appropriate treatment method and discusses it in detail with the patient depending on the type of skin. In dry skin, the skin must be cleaned using cleansers that contain a high concentration of moisturizers and avoid peeling with salicylic acid, unlike oily skin, which needs to be cleaned with salicylic acid. In cases where dermatological dyes need to be treated, the specialist uses oxygen to clean the skin, as oxygen is characterized by its high ability to get rid of skin spots and unify the skin color.

Number of sessions and duration of each session

 Usually, the results begin to appear after the first session, so the patient gets smooth and blackhead-free skin. The patient needs at least two sessions to treat large pores, and the number of sessions varies according to the size and prevalence of these pores in the skin. The patient needs 4 to 6 sessions when treating wrinkles, fine lines and signs of aging, as well as when treating skin patches, provided that the time period between the session and the next is 4 weeks, after which the patient can undergo preventive sessions every three or six months to maintain the skin permanently .

It is worth mentioning that the duration of the treatment session does not exceed 30 minutes, as each of the three stages is limited to only 10  minutes.
