Hydrafacial - Pre and Post Care

Hydrafacial - Pre and Post Care

A HydraFacial is a “leveled-up facial treatment” that utilizes proprietary vacuum technology and serums to exfoliate, cleanse, extract, and hydrate the skin. The spiral design of HydroPeel® tips makes this treatment especially unique. This one-of-a-kind treatment can address a number of skin conditions such as:

  • Fine lines & wrinkles
  • Elasticity & firmness
  • Skin tone & texture
  • Enlarged & clogged pores

How to prepare for your treatment:

  1. Avoid excess sun exposure, for 1 week before treatment, and use SPF 30 or greater daily to ensure coverage against UVB and UBA rays.
  2. Do not use any type of exfoliants 2 days before treatment.
  3. Refrain from any chemical peels or lasers for 2 weeks prior.
  4. Discontinue use of Tretinoin type products (Renova, Tretinoin, Retin A, Retin A Micro, Tri-Luma, Solage, etc.) at least 2 days before treatment.
  5. Discontinue use of Hydroquinone 2-3 days before treatment.
  6. If you have a history of cold sores, consider beginning prophylactic treatment with Valtrex or similar no later than the day of treatment.
  7. Notify the studio if you develop a cold sore, acne, open lesions in the area being treated, or experience any type of illness before your treatment.
  8. Wait 2 weeks after Botox and filler treatments to have a HydraFacial treatment.
  9. Botox and filler may be done on the same day, but only after HydraFacial treatment.

What to expect day of your treatment:

  1. The HydraFacial treatment starts with cleansing by removing the dead skin cells and excess sebum from the skin.
  2. Next, a mix of salicylic and glycolic acids is applied to the skin to break up any dirt and oil that's clogging pores.
  3. The HydraPeel Tip is used to essentially vacuum out blackheads, dirt, oil, and impurities, while hydrating, plumping, and nourishing serums are simultaneously applied to the skin.

Post treatment care:

  1. Avoid any exfoliation to the area for 48 hours post-treatment.
  2. To keep the area clean, avoid heat sources, including hot showers, saunas, and cardio workouts that may produce sweat for 24 hours.
  3. You may wash your face the following morning using the products recommended.
  4. Please discuss continuing use of your regular regimen post-treatment.
  5. Do not use topical Retin-A for 2 days following treatment.
  6. Avoid unprotected sun exposure and/or use of tanning beds for at least 3 days post-treatment.
  7. Use sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher daily for 3-5 days post-treatment.
  8. Makeup may be applied the day after treatment.
