Hydrafacial Q & A

What is a HydraFacial?

HydraFacial is a three-step treatment that works well for any skin type. Whether you have sensitive, oily, dry, or uneven skin, the team at Afzal Clinics can customize your HydraFacial with products and nutrients to benefit your specific type of skin.

The results are similar to microdermabrasion, but the HydraFacial doesn’t involve sanding the skin with a rough instrument. Instead, your treatment happens in three steps:

Cleanse and peel

The cleansing and peeling portion of your treatment involves skin resurfacing and exfoliation. This part removes dead cells from the surface and helps increase collagen production if you get the treatment regularly.

Extract and hydrate

The extraction and hydration step of your HydraFacial procedure goes a little deeper to take dirt and debris out of the pores in your skin. It uses vacuum suction technology while simultaneously flushing your skin with beneficial topical moisturizers.

Infuse and protect

The infusion and protection step in your HydraFacial is the final stage of the procedure. During this part, the team delivers a custom blend of serums to target specific skin issues according to your needs. They can choose products that treat hyperpigmentation, laxity, dullness, and other features.

What does a HydraFacial do for my skin?

As its name implies, the HydraFacial hydrates your skin by replenishing vital moisture and nutrients. However, it can do much more than just that. In fact, through its multi-step process, it can improve the appearance of numerous blemishes and imperfections that tend to accumulate with age and sun damage. 

Your next HydraFacial may minimize:

  • Enlarged pores
  • Oil production
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Laxity
  • Uneven tones
  • Rough or uneven textures
  • Dullness

Furthermore, a HydraFacial clears your clogged pores so they’re more susceptible to the products delivered to your skin. This includes serums, moisturizers, peptides, and antioxidants that renew your skin’s natural healthy glow. 

How often can I get a HydraFacial?

HydraFacial isn’t like harsher skin treatments that require several months of waiting time between procedures. Instead, it’s gentle enough on any skin type that you can get one as often as once a month. This gives you continuous skin benefits and even provides a considerable increase in your skin’s collagen production, which keeps it firm.
