Wellness photoSeven interesting facts you didn’t know about the HydraFacial, the newest luxury skin-care treatment at The Spa. 

1. It’s pair-able.

The HydraFacial infuses hyaluronic acid, your body’s natural lubricant, into your skin; because of this, it pairs nicely with topical procedures like facials. “You can literally pair it with anything. That’s the reason we brought the HydraFacial to The Spa. It pairs nicely with a SkinCeuticals facial, and it also pairs well with Eminence,” says Katie Wallis, spa and athletic services director. 

2. The results are immediate.

“You’re going to see immediate results in terms of cleaning clogged pores. At the end of the facial, we have a canister in which we will show you everything that was removed,” says Wallis. Not only does it deep clean but also “you’ll see moisture and a plumping effect right away.” 

3. The HydraFacial can substitute plastic surgery.

A great alternative to plastic surgery is the 90-minute Luxury HydraFacial. “There is a product we use called DermaBuilder, which targets the skin the way Botox does, only without the pins and needles; it’s infused into your skin during the HydraFacial process,” says Wallis. 

4. Hydration is one of the best things for your health.

“You need water and moisture. In terms of hydrating your face, if you lack moisture, you’re going to see it in your skin,” says Wallis. Hydration helps to decrease the speed of aging and the use of hyaluronic acid helps pump moisture back into your skin naturally. “You can see the difference when you have hydrated skin; it’s full, it’s glowing.”

5. The HydraFacial can be used for different purposes.

The HydraFacial can benefit all skin types. For clients in their 40s, 50s and 60s, the HydraFacial is beneficial in terms of improving the appearance of wrinkles and cracked skin. For individuals under the age of 40, the HydraFacial is mainly used for preventative maintenance.

6. It has lasting effects.

For long-lasting effects, it’s best to have this service performed monthly, even weekly. However, the effects from one service will last you about a week to 10 days. According to Wallis, you typically wouldn’t want to have a treatment done any sooner than a week to the 10-day mark, as the results wouldn’t be quite as beneficial. 

7. The HydraFacial can be done anytime.

“Your skin always needs moisture, deep cleansing and exfoliation. It’s a treatment that a lot of brides do before their wedding day because there is no downtime.” The HydraFacial is perfect for a big event, and it’s also just great for your overall health.
