HydraFacial vs. Microdermabrasion – What Is Best For You?

So the inevitable is happening. Your skin is gradually aging. You are noticing wrinkles, large pores, sagging, dark spots, depletion of collagen and hyperpigmentation. You’ve done your research and you’ve narrowed it down to two procedures – Hydrafacial and Microdermabrasion. They both treat wrinkles, enlarged pores, hyperpigmentation. They both trigger collagen. And each procedure helps you resurface your skin, so that dead skin cells are eliminated to expose healthy skin.

…But which one is for you? Let’s dive in and explore the differences between the two so that you can make an educated decision when the right moment comes.

Microdermabrasion

There are several different types of microdermabrasion. All of them exfoliate your skin. Microdermabrasion removes your skin’s top layer, along with the debris on it. It cleanses your pores, encourages the formation of collagen to tone and firm your skin, and stimulates your blood circulation. This procedure is painless and makes your skin immediately softer and smoother.

HydraFacial

HydraFacialalso called “Wet Microdermabrasion”, is a medical grade treatment, offering immediate results with no downtime. It cleanses, exfoliates, extracts, and hydrates with special serums full of antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid.

HydraFacial does everything that microdermabrasion does. It also includes special serums which are full of peptides, hyaluronic acid and antioxidants. HydraFacial can also be customized based on your skin type and any special concerns you might have. Your medical aesthetician will assess your skin and will tailor the procedure to your personal needs.

After a HydraFacial procedure your skin will be totally rejuvenated and glowing. The products you are using will penetrate faster in your skin and will be working more effectively. Along with that, your makeup is also going to go on a lot more smoothly.

HydraFacial is a great treatment right before a big event – a wedding, a party, a corporate meeting, you name it. Its effect on your skin is cumulative, so it is a great idea to do a series of treatments for best results.

We hope this helps you make an educated decision what’s best for you – and if you are still hesitating, we are here to help!
