HydraFacial Vs. Traditional Facial For Dry Winter Skin

HydraFacial Vs. Traditional Facial

While on the surface, HydraFacials and traditional facials may have a lot in common, they’re far from the same treatment! Both treatment options are entirely tailored to your particular skin type and needs; however, the way each process is performed differs significantly.

The HydraFacial is ideal for those looking to wake up dull, dry winter skin. Whether you’ve been struggling with chronic dryness or want to lessen the visual signs of aging, the HydraFacial can provide your skin with exactly what it needs.

Read on to learn what separates the HydraFacial from traditional facial treatments.

What Happens During a HydraFacial?

Step One: Cleanse

The cleansing process is the first step in a HydraFacial and gently cleanses the skin while exfoliating the outermost layer of the skin. This process removes dead skin cells and allows the skin to reflect more light, which creates a brighter and healthier appearance.

Step Two: Exfoliate

The acid peel portion is comprised of a non-irritant mix of salicylic and glycolic acids. Both help loosens deep pore debris and dirt that you cannot get to with your usual facial cleansing routine. This mixture can also help prevent the pustules in acne from forming.

Step Three: Extract

If you’re the type of person who enjoys seeing what comes out of your clogged pores, this may be part of the treatment you will love. Instead of performing manual extractions, we use what is called a vortex-extraction nozzle that acts as a vacuum for your face. The noise for many is soothing, and this extraction tool can show you precisely what is extracted from your pores. The vortex removes blackheads and other impurities in the skin, helping to cleanse your pores thoroughly.

Step Four: Hydrate

The final step involves the application of vortex fusion to deliver a pro-antioxidant formula with potent peptides and hyaluronic acid into the skin. This detoxification step rejuvenates and restores the skin, creating healthy skin structure and function.

How The HydraFacial Compares To Traditional Facials

Traditional facials and HydraFacials are both similar in that they are each tailored to your particular skin type and current needs; however, the way each treatment is performed differs.

Traditional Facials

Traditional facials are known to have a few uncomfortable moments throughout the treatment. Extractions, in which the administrator goes deeper into the pores to clean them, is typically unenjoyable and may cause minor discomfort. While traditional facials are excellent for long-term skin treatment, they can also lead to immediate redness or skin eruptions in the following days.


The entire process of a HydraFacial is tranquil and relaxing. Compared to feeling like a light massage to the face, a HydraFacial can be beneficial to reducing acne and improving the overall tone of your skin. There is little to no downtime after having a HydraFacial, and redness and irritation are not common side effects.
