Clean, smooth, hydrated skin brings great satisfaction. You already pay attention to your daily skin care, but what is the next step? Hydrafacial™ is a treatment that leaves you feeling and looking refreshed. The experience of Hydrafacial is as rewarding as a good massage. Vitalogy Skincare offers tailored Hydrafacial treatments to spoil and rejuvenate your skin. Before taking advantage of this great treatment, let us delve into what it is, what it can do for you, and what type of results to expect.

Hydrafacial Basics

Hydrafacial is an in-office medical-grade facial treatment that is non-invasive and virtually painless. You may have heard it being called a hydradermabrasion treatment. Hydrafacial uses Vortex Fusion Technology to gently and effectively remove a layer of dead skin, dirt, debris, and impurities while hydrating and soothing your skin. Its patented technology includes three steps:

Step 1: Cleanse and peel –uncovers a new layer of skin with gentle exfoliation and relaxing resurfacing.

Step 2: Extract and hydrate – a strong, painless vacuum suction removes debris, blackheads, and impurities safely from pores while hydrating your skin simultaneously.

Step 3: Fuse and protect – this part of the treatment infuses serums explicitly selected for your skin type and skin care goals to maximize your glow.

Hydrafacial has been shown to help with a variety of skin issues, including:

  • Reducing fine lines and wrinkles
  • Lightening dark spots and patches
  • Cleaning clogged pores
  • Reducing enlarged pores
  • Clearing up mild acne
  • Refining skin texture
  • Improving elasticity and firmness

The Hydrafacial Advantage

Hydrafacial is a suitable choice for all skin types due to its gentle nature. This treatment offers a high degree of customization, allowing you and your Licensed Aesthetician to tailor it to your unique skin type and specific goals. Upon completing the procedure, you will notice immediate results, experiencing smoother and more radiant skin that outlasts the effects of a typical facial. Another great advantage is that no recovery time is required, enabling you to return to your regular daily activities right away. We recommend refraining from using makeup for the remainder of the day, allowing your skin to fully absorb the rejuvenating benefits. Lastly, Hydrafacial can be applied to various body areas, including the neck, décolleté, hands, arms, and back, making it a versatile option for comprehensive skin care.

How does Hydrafacial compare totreatments such as chemical peels and microdermabrasion? Both these methods also resurface and exfoliate your skin. Microdermabrasion uses an abrasive and suction to exfoliate, and chemical peels use a chemical solution such as glycolic acid to remove the top layer of skin. While both are effective, they can be irritating to some skin types. Hydrafacial is a softer approach since it uses water as an exfoliating medium. All three methods have different advantages, and it is best to consult your dermatology provider to select the best plan for your skin.

Hydrafacial Treatments at Vitalogy Skincare

At Vitalogy Skincare, we offer three different treatment options in the Austin area, with each successive treatment adding a therapy that will enhance the effects on your skin.

Signature Hydrafacial (30 minutes) – a customizable procedure that uses the patented Vortex-Fusion technology to cleanse, extract, hydrate, and infuse the skin with anti-aging peptides, antioxidants, and hyaluronic acid. 

Deluxe Hydrafacial (45 minutes) – Provides you with the full spectrum of advantages offered by the Signature Hydrafacial, complemented by a super serum booster designed to address individual skin concerns. The Deluxe treatment also includes a soothing and revitalizing LED light therapy session. LED treatments are well-regarded for their ability to enhance various skin conditions, such as acne, psoriasis, and sun damage, with studies demonstrating their role in stimulating collagen production.

Platinum Hydrafacial (60 minutes) – The comprehensive detox Hydrafacial includes lymphatic drainage as an integral component, aiming to detoxify and diminish inflammation while also offering the complete array of preventive and corrective advantages found in the Deluxe Hydrafacial. Lymphatic drainage, a specialized massage technique, is employed to alleviate puffiness, redness, and irritation, enhancing the overall experience.

Kicking It Up a Notch

Try the Hydrafacial Perk Lip or the Hydrafacial Perk Eye treatment as add-ons to any of the above. These refreshing treatments gently cleanse and hydrate the most delicate parts of your face.

Hydrafacial also enhances the results of other complementary treatments. Here are some examples that can help give you better results:

  • BOTOX® Cosmetic will smooth out lines and wrinkles.
  • Fillers, including any in the JUVEDERM® family, as well as Radiesse® and Restylane®, will help you achieve smoother and plumper skin.
  • Microneedling helps increase collagen production, improves skin tone and texture, and smooths out fine lines and wrinkles.

Work with your dermatology provider to create a treatment schedule that will help you achieve your skin care goals.

Is Hydrafacial Right for You?

Hydrafacial works for all skin types, but you should avoid the treatment if you have an active rash, sunburn, moderate to severe acne, or rosacea. If you are currently on Accutane, you might want to wait six months after you finish taking it before you get a Hydrafacial treatment. As always, discuss any conditions, including pregnancy, allergies, or medications, before any treatment. 

Results You Can Expect

The visible results of Hydrafacial are immediate. The skin glow and excellent hydration can last from five to seven days. We recommend treating yourself to a Hydrafacial at least once a month to keep your skin glowing. If monthly treatments do not fit your schedule or budget, one Hydrafacial every three months can be very beneficial for your skin.

Just remember that Hydrafacial is customizable to your needs. Make an appointment with one of our Licensed Aestheticians, who will work with you to help achieve your skin goals. Hydrafacial will leave you much more refreshed, with smoother, fresher skin.
