At-home skin care is certainly an essential part of keeping your complexion clear, healthy, and glowing. However, professional treatments can boost the effects of your daily skin care routines and help to preserve your youthful look for even longer. At Allura MedSpa + Wellness in Boynton Beach, FL, one of the most popular in-office skin treatments is the HydraFacial, which targets a wide array of concerns in patients of all ages and skin types. Use this helpful information from our expert clinical team to learn more about the benefits and possible side effects of HydraFacial.

What is a HydraFacial?

The HydraFacial treatment system is a revolutionary skin care solution that allows each clinical facial to be fully customized to the patient’s individual needs, goals, skin type, and more. The treatment itself involves six fundamental processes, including:

  • Cleansing
  • Exfoliation
  • Extraction
  • Moisturizing
  • Nourishing serum application
  • Skin protection

HydraFacials are appropriate for virtually all skin types, skin tones, and ages, and these customized treatments can be used to address a long list of concerns, including:

  • Sun spots
  • Brown spots
  • Discoloration
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Dull skin
  • Acne
  • Large pores
  • Clogged pores
  • Oily skin
  • Dry skin
  • Rough skin texture
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Skin laxity
  • Aging skin

Are there any risks with HydraFacial?

The vast majority of patients tolerate HydraFacial treatment extremely well with few, if any, side effects. After a HydraFacial, which typically takes just 30 minutes or less, some redness may occur. This is often the only side effect of a HydraFacial and is typically mild and resolves quickly on its own. If desired, patients can apply makeup after HydraFacial treatment to conceal any redness. In very rare cases, patients may experience an allergic reaction to the serum or other products used during HydraFacial. However, our knowledgeable aesthetic team will take great care to discuss any known allergies, sensitivities, and other potential risk factors before selecting the specific products to include in your treatment.

How long does it take HydraFacial to work?

Most men and women notice an almost immediate improvement in their complexion after treatment, though the final results of HydraFacial will take about 3 – 7 days to become visible.

How often should I get HydraFacials?

To preserve and prolong your HydraFacial results, you may benefit by having regular treatments about once per month. During your initial consultation for HydraFacial at Allura MedSpa + Wellness, we will discuss your needs, goals, and other personal factors to determine the most appropriate treatment schedule for you. Additionally, patients should adhere to an at-home skin care regimen and make healthy lifestyle choices – including avoiding sun exposure and not smoking – to keep their skin looking fabulous between treatments.

Can I get a HydraFacial after BOTOX®?

While it is certainly possible to get a HydraFacial after fillers or BOTOX, patients will need to wait up to 1 – 2 weeks after their injectable treatment before scheduling the session. This prevents inadvertently compromising the results of your injections.
