HydraFacial 101: Benefits, Cost, and What to Expect from the Experts
I came to JTAV Clinical Skincare with nothing but SPF on my skin. As I lay on the treatment bed, my esthetician started with a cleanser to remove the sunscreen and any possible build-up from my face.
My eyes were closed and covered with little papers to protect them from any volatile ingredients because no one needs salicylic acid in their eyes.
After that, it’s time for treatment. She developed a high-tech HydraFacial system complete with an active tip that would soon buff away my dead skin, as well as bottles of exfoliating and hydrating boosters.
Then the action began. I felt the pen touch my face with a sensation that can only be described as a mini vacuum cleaner sucking all the dirt from my skin. It didn’t hurt least. I actually enjoyed the suction-like sensation.
After exfoliation and extraction meets hydration, I sat under the red and blue LED light for about 10 minutes.
Finally, my beautician applied a hydrating serum, gel moisturizer, and sunscreen to my skin to protect my complexion on the way home.
In total, my HydraFacial took about 45 minutes. It was super quick, surprisingly relaxing, and super exciting because I knew my skin would be in top shape for the weekend ahead—and it was.
