I’m sure many of you have seen the HydraFacial all over Instagram and wondered what this facial was all about. It’s a non-invasive, and quick facial that claims use, “patented technology to cleanse, extract, and hydrate.”
Supreet, the owner of Skin Sutra MedSpa and the one who did my facial, told me that the HydraFacial is replacing conventional facials. That means, no more squeezing and painful extractions — this two-step process is the only thing needed for your facials. Supreet recommended doing the HydraFacial monthly to help maintain skin elasticity, keep your pores small, and leave your face feeling smooth.
- She started off with cleansing my face. Supreet used a Sente face wash and made sure my face was clean so that it could properly absorb the serums. There are a few serums that you can choose from before the treatment — I chose the HydraFacial Growth Factor (to help with cell turnover and wrinkles) and Britenol Boost (this gives the face a brighter glow).
- Supreet then exfoliated the skin so that the dead cells were sloughed away and my pores were open — enabling maximum absorption of the serums.
- Then a glycolic acid was placed on my skin. Glycolic is used to reveal brighter smoother skin and it left my face baby soft.
- After that, the serums that I chose were “pushed” into my skin using a vortex-fusion tool.
- Finally, she used an LED light all over my face. This is suppose to help with inflammation and any hyperpigmentation.
After the treatment was done, my skin looked refreshed and I had this natural glow. Unlike other facials it wasn’t red at all. Also, if I really wanted to, Supreet said that I would have been able to wear makeup that same night, but I just let my skin breathe.
It’s been about two months (by the time this blog will be live) since I got the treatment and I’ve been really happy with how my face looks. I only use skin makeup (including BB and CC creams) when I have a special occasion.
Overall, it’s way less invasive than the other treatments that I did with her, i.e. Venus Viva and SkinPen, but the results weren’t as dramatic. For example with the SkinPen and the VenusViva, I felt like it really helped with some of my hyperpigmentation.
My take? Well, If I was looking for something to give my skin a boost and I didn’t have downtime to let my skin heal, I would definitely opt for the HydraFacial.
Also, I know that sometimes self-care can be expensive so Supreet gave me a 20% discount code for the regular HydraFacial. Use this link http://spab.kr/HzClzBf and this code: SabrinaSummer19 (it expires at the end of August 2019).
