What Is a HydraFacial Treatment?

A HydraFacial treatment is great for people that want healthy, natural-looking skin without having to go to the extremes of surgery. It is a non-invasive, non-surgical medical procedure. The purpose of this aesthetic treatment is to rejuvenate your skin and improve your appearance by exfoliating, cleansing, and hydrating the skin from within. A patented wand device is used to treat the area of concern. This device stimulated the production of collagen to restore elasticity in your skin. Bayside Medspa in Norfolk, VA offer HydraFacial treatments for most skin types and tones. 

How Does It Work? 

The procedure includes 5 steps. The first step aims to deep clean the skin and exfoliates pores. The process goes on to remove dirt from the treated area, and the final step aims to rehydrate the skin so that it can stay smooth and even-toned. Here is what to expect from a HydraFacial treatment: 

Cleanse And Exfoliation 

There is only so much we can do at home to clean the surface of our skin. The first step of the HydraFacial treatment is to thoroughly clean and exfoliate your skin from any oil, dirt, or stubborn skincare products. This step will ensure that the following steps will be effective. This step will also include the use of microdermabrasion to exfoliate dead skin cells from the uppermost layer of your skin. The process is gentle on the skin making it safe and pain-free. 

Peel Serum Application 

The following step introduces a light chemical peel that will exfoliate the next layer of skin. This layer of skin is generally where superficial skin concerns occur. The peel that is used for this treatment is usually salicylic acid or glycolic acid which can remove excess sebum, dissolve whiteheads and blackheads and assist with acne.  


Dead skin cells and hardened oil loosened by the previous steps can be gently extracted in this step thanks to the Vortex-Fusion technology used in the device. This step is essential to properly removing the dirt from the skin that may clog your pores. 

Facial Customization 

The following step is where your treatment is customized to suit the needs of your skin. Serums specific to your skin are now applied, and more suction at this stage may be done to achieve desired results. While the previous steps are general and set out for cleansing and exfoliating, this step is unique to your skin concerns, such as acne or uneven skin tone. 


The final step is all about rehydrating your skin. This step involves the application of an intensely hydrating serum that locks moisture into the skin of the treated area. The serum will soothe and nourish your skin, filling it with antioxidants and collagen to give you a refreshed, youthful appearance. 

What Are the Benefits Of HydraFacial Treatment? 

This treatment is effective for almost all skin types and skin tones of all ages. It grants benefits to many people because it can be used to treat a broad spectrum of skin concerns, such as: 

  • Acne 
  • Acne scarring 
  • Dull skin 
  • Dark spots and blemishes 
  • Sun damage and uneven skin tone 
  • Whiteheads and blackheads 
  • Hyperpigmentation 

These are just a few of the skin conditions that can be treated by using HydraFacial treatments. 

How Long Do the Results Last? 

A HydraFacial treatment is highly effective and gentle on the skin. Just one session is all you need to attain skin rejuvenation. These results will last for about 4 – 6 weeks. A regular treatment can be scheduled every month or even every 2 months. Using this treatment regularly allows you to deep clean continuously, keeping your skin in great condition, minimizing acne breakouts, and keeping skin tone even. 

When Will the Results Show? 

More intense results of a HydraFacial treatment can be seen after a few days. However, your skin will be noticeably softer, smoother, and more radiant immediately after treatment. Thereafter, the condition and appearance of your skin will continue to improve. 

Looking After Your Skin – Post Treatment 

Although HydraFacial treatments aid skin rejuvenation and help keep skin smooth and unblemished. Keeping your skin in good condition means employing a healthy skincare routine after your treatment. Here is how you can look after your skin after a HydraFacial treatment: 

  • Avoiding sun exposure for 2 – 3 days after treatment. 
  • Wearing at least SPF 30 sunscreen can protect your skin from sun damage. 
  • Laser skin treatments and chemical peels should be avoided for 2 weeks.
  • Exfoliating treatments, waxing or any harsh acne medications should be avoided for at least 2 days. 
  • A hot shower, a sauna, or a hot tub should be avoided for 1 day. 
  • Generally, the application of makeup is not recommended for the rest of the day of your treatment. This will allow your skin to restore natural and stay cleansed.
