First of all thank you Daniela for being on JAMO, please brief our readers and us on Hydrafacial treatment?
Thank you for having me! HydraFacial is this amazing Hollywood treatment that leaves you with an immediate glow in just 30 minutes! The painless 3 step treatment deeply exfoliates and hydrates the skin with zero downtime and absolutely no pain. The HydraFacial device relies on the vacuum-based Vortex Fusion patented technology. The multi-step treatment uses multiple heads that help nourishes the face with active serums, keeping the skin moist as it applies different modes of suction to help exfoliate the top layer of the skin.
What makes HydraFacial different and effective from the rest of the facial treatments we have had?
HydraFacial was created to address all skin care needs, including:
- Fine lines + wrinkles
- Elasticity + firmness
- Even tone, brown spots
- Skin texture
- Oily + congested skin
- Rosacea + sensitive skin
- Large pores
The customizable HydraFacial treatment: cleanses and exfoliates, peels and extracts, infuses and hydrates the skin using special HydraPeel Tips on a pen-like device, and that’s just the beginning! HydraFacial offers 4 different exfoliating tips that provide moderate to aggressive exfoliation, they also offer 3 strengths of their non-irritating Glysal peel ranging from superficial to medical strength. This allows us to personalize a patient’s treatment due to skin needs and type. It also gives us the freedom to change our protocol as your skin changes to achieve our results. Super Serums also known as Boosters, are designed to target specific skin concerns including anti-aging, pigmentation, sun damage, acne, rosacea, and sensitive skin. Boosters can be added to your treatment along with LED light therapy and lymphatic drainage for a complete Red Carpet-worthy HydraFacial experience. HydraFacial with Perk adds the perfect complement to all the HydraFacial treatments performed in our office. With HydraFacial Perk, it targets the areas under your eyes, around your lips, or a combination of both. Finally, you’ll receive a 30-day supply after your treatment. You can use this supply on your eye/lip area to support the results of the procedure done in-office. The Perk Lip treatment uses a roller-flex which gently removes the surface layer of dead skin from your lips. This process removes impurities while simultaneously delivering vital antioxidants to your lips. With the HydraFacial Perk Eye, this treatment gently exfoliates dull and damaged skin cells. As a result, it leaves you with a younger and brighter look under your eyes.
Normally we would have a facial after three weeks or a month, is it the same with a HydraFacial?
The frequency of HydraFacial sessions depends on your skin type and your provider’s recommendations. It is best to have a HydraFacial treatment every three to four weeks because it helps to maintain that beautiful signature glow all month long. However certain skin types like those suffering from oily skin should have this treatment twice a month. An aesthetician or dermatologist can help you determine the right number of sessions based on your skin condition and goals.
People with allergies and sensitive skin, could still have the HydraFacial?
Yes! When we said HydraFacial is for everyone we really meant it. However, as with any treatment people should be careful of irritating inflamed or burned skin and should wait until the issue is resolved before undergoing any aesthetic or medical treatment. When it comes to sensitive treatment, HydraFacial took into consideration the difficulty of treating the skin type and came up with a custom treatment just for people with skin sensitivities! If you are of a sensitive skin type, your HydraFacialist will decrease the vacuum settings and will omit the glysal and exfoliating boosters. Your therapist will also recommend using the Red Led Therapy which is going to calm down the skin and give it that glowy appearance.
Does HydraFacial stop our skin from breakouts and acne?
HydraFacial has outstanding results for breakouts and ance due to the deep exfoliation that occurs during the treatment, which helps to remove pore-clogging skin cells. This is done by using different types of exfoliating spiral tips to peel, extract and exfoliate impurities and dead skin cells which play a role in causing acne.
If we search on the internet we find many beauty centers offering HydraFacial but where do you suggest we should get it from?
Our skin deserves to be treated with the Original HydraFacial which uses FDA patented technology. Unfortunately, there are counterfeit machines and boosters in the market acting as the Original HydraFacial, but using these can damage and burn your skin. Always ask your HydraFacialist about the Original HydraFacial brand and about the boosters and ingredients going into your skin, as the quality of ingredients really makes a difference. You can always also reach out to us directly on Instagram @hydrafacialarabia and we can guide you to your nearest Original HydraFacial provider
What are the most common mistakes you see people do while choosing a skincare treatment?
What your friend does on their skin doesn’t mean it will work for you! Choosing a skincare treatment is highly personalized and depends on a wide range of things from your skin type, skin concern, age, hormonal issues, etc. A lot of people also have the believe that “the more products I use, the more results I will see.” This is not the case and oftentimes overwhelming your skin with products that may not be right for you can cause more damage to the skin. You should always go for a consultation with a professional first before choosing the treatment or any products you’re using on the skin.
Last but not least, what is your advice for our readers?
Achieving healthy skin is a combination of lifestyle – think, eating plenty of fresh, whole foods, drinking plenty of water, and getting enough sleep. Try to maintain a good skincare routine involving actives such as Vitamin C and of course, HydraFacial once a month!
