Why the HydraFacial is a Great Option for Your Skin

If you are in the Scottsdale or Fountain Hills area, you may have heard about the relatively new skincare treatment called the HydraFacial. The HydraFacial is a skin treatment that when performed monthly will create significant changes to your skin. This is because it removes the oil and debris from your pores at a deeper level than a facial can and it infuses hydration into the skin. Below are some of the reasons why the HydraFacial is so popular:

1. Its Like a Facial but Does More

The HydraFacial system resurfaces you skin while providing cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, and hydration. This procedure, like a facial, exfoliates dead skin cells and extracts impurities and blackheads. It also uses a vacuum-based cyclone abrasive tip, while stimulating the blood and lymphatic flow. What makes it different is that the healthy underlying skin is then infused with key nutrients, antioxidants, and active serums that are specifically tailored to your skin type.

2. Good for Any Skin Type

The HydraFacial can be used with any skin type, whether fair, olive tone, or dark-complexioned. People with acne, oily skin, and inflamed skin with large pores and rosacea are ideal candidates for this treatment. Also those with dry skin will benefit from the deep hydration it provides.

3. No Downtime

The HydraFacial is the most powerful and effective facial and skin rejuvenation protocol on the market with no downtime. Abrasive treatments can leave your face red and irritated right for a short time. This treatment is gentle, non-invasive and painless. It is the perfect treatment to have right before a special occasion as your skin will be glowing when you walk out the door.

Dry vs Dehydrated Skin

A lot of my clients deal with skin that is less hydrated than they would like. Hydrated skin is glowing skin and most people are chasing that glow. However, just because skin isn’t as hydrated as you would like, there are different reasons for this. Your skin may be dry, or it may be dehydrated.

Dehydrated skin is a skin condition that occurs when there’s a lack of water in the skin. This can happen to anyone, regardless of skin type — people with oily or combination skin can still experience dehydration. Dehydrated skin typically looks dull and can show premature signs of aging, like surface wrinkles and loss of elasticity.

A great way to tell if your skin is dehydrated is the pinch test. While this test isn’t definitive, it’s a good way to start thinking about your skin from the inside out. Pinch a small amount of skin on your cheek, abdomen, chest, or the back of your hand and hold for a few seconds.

If your skin snaps back, you’re likely not dehydrated.

If it takes a few moments to bounce back, you’re likely dehydrated.

In dry skin, on the other hand, water isn’t the problem. Dry skin is a skin type, like oily or combination skin, where the complexion lacks oils, or lipids, so it takes on a more flaky, dry appearance. Dry skin is more likely to be red and salt vs dehydrated skin.

Dehydrated skin and Dry Skin Need Different Treatments

If you want your skin to look and feel its best, you need to both hydrate and moisturize. Dehydrated skin may just need some good supplements and additional water, while dry skin will need more moisturizing products in order to get the glow back into the skin.

Extra tips for Hydrating the Skin

For dehydrated skin, oral hydration is a must because it’s adding water into complexion from the inside. You can also incorporate water-rich foods into your diet, such as watermelon, strawberries, cucumber, and celery.

For dry skin, keep on moisturizing with the proper moisturizers and hydrating serums. This process helps dry skin better retain water and maintain a proper level of hydration. The key to addressing dry skin is finding products that help you lock in moisture, especially overnight. Try using a humidifier, especially during winter months, and add fish oil for an extra boost.
