What Is HydraFacial?

HydraFacial is a popular cosmetic treatment that provides medical-grade skin resurfacing. The treatment utilizes a special device and a three-step process to thoroughly clean out the facial pores while moisturizing, plumping, and protecting the skin. The HydraFacial treatment leaves the facial skin looking and feeling healthier, smoother, and more youthful.

What Are The Benefits of HydraFacial?

For anyone looking to step up their skincare regimen, HydraFacial can provide all of the following benefits:

  • Softer, more hydrated skin
  • Smoother complexion
  • Revitalized, glowing facial skin
  • Reduced fine lines and wrinkles
  • More even skin tone
  • Improved self-confidence
  • More youthful-looking face

What Should I Expect During the Treatment?

If you’d like to try out our HydraFacial in Kirkland, a great first step is to schedule a quick consultation with Dr. Tseng. During this meeting, you and the doctor will discuss your skincare goals and what you’re hoping to achieve with the treatment. He may examine your facial skin to determine the best approach for your treatment plan. Dr. Tseng will also need to know a few things about your health and medical history, such as any allergies you have and medications you’re taking.

The HydraFacial treatment itself will be a simple, low-stress process. Dr. Tseng will use the innovative HydraFacial device and several high-quality skincare products to move through the three steps of the treatment. You may feel a bit of discomfort during the exfoliating part of the procedure, but otherwise, there shouldn’t be any pain. All in all, the treatment should only take around 30 minutes to complete, and you’ll be able to leave the office and resume your normal activities immediately.

How Does HydraFacial Work?

HydraFacial is very similar to a treatment called microdermabrasion, in which the outer layer of skin is removed to bring a smoother, more youthful layer to the surface. However, the two treatments aren’t exactly the same. HydraFacial treatment is divided into three distinct steps:

Cleanse and Peel - The first step of the HydraFacial process is to gently exfoliate and resurface the skin. During this step, the treatment delivers the Activ-4 serum, which removes dead skin cells from the surface, and GlySal, which is a blend of glycolic and salicylic acids that gently peels away the top layer of skin.

Extract and Hydrate - Next, the HydraFacial device’s exfoliator tip is used to suction dead skin cells, dirt, and other debris from the pores. At the same time, the device applies powerful moisturizers as well as a special serum containing antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid to the skin.

Fuse and Protect - Finally, additional antioxidants and peptides are delivered to the facial skin to ensure that its glow is maximized. Other proprietary skin solutions are also included in this step depending on the specific needs and goals of the patient.

Am I a Candidate for HydraFacial?

Adults interested in achieving healthier, more vibrant facial skin may be good candidates for HydraFacial treatment. The treatment is safe and effective for nearly all skin types and tones. Ideal candidates for HydraFacial should meet the following requirements:

  • Have realistic expectations for the treatment
  • Be free of active facial rashes and sunburns
  • Not currently have severe acne or rosacea
  • Not be currently pregnant

Before undergoing HydraFacial treatment, you may also need to put your current skincare routine on hold. You should talk to Dr. Tseng about any products you’re using; he may advise you to temporarily stop taking them until after the treatment.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Another thing that makes HydraFacial so popular is that it causes very few side effects. Your skin may experience some redness and irritation for a couple of days after the treatment, but other than that, there shouldn’t be any negative symptoms.

How Long Is the Recovery Time?

One of the wonderful things about HydraFacial is that there isn’t any recovery downtime necessary. Dr. Tseng will likely advise you against washing your face or doing anything that could make you sweat for the remainder of the day. But otherwise, you can return to your typical routine right away.

How Long Will It Take To See Results After HydraFacial?

Typically, you will notice your facial skin feeling soft and smooth immediately after your HydraFacial treatment. You may also notice that it looks rejuvenated and has a new glow. That’s only the beginning, though; the positive effects of the treatment should continue to increase over several weeks.

Although the results of HydraFacial tend to last longer than most facial treatments, it isn’t intended to be a one-time treatment. To keep your skin as healthy and vibrant as possible for the long term, it’s recommended to undergo HydraFacial treatment once every four to six weeks.
