Hydrafacial FAQ – What Our Customers Ask Us
Have you ever had any questions about our Hydrafacial treatment? Well, you’re not alone! Over the years we’ve received countless questions about Hydrafacials and so in this Hydrafacial FAQ post we’ll outline the most common questions – and answers – to do with Hydrafacials.
How Long Is a Hydrafacial Treatment?
The HydraFacial is a luxurious treatment that will leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Depending on your desired results, the session can last anywhere from 45 minutes to one full hour. The standard ‘HydraFacial Signature’ requires only 45 minutes of your time while the ‘HydraFacial Dermalux,’ which includes specialized light therapy, takes an additional 15 minutes to complete.
How Much Does a Hydrafacial Cost?
Our signature 45 minute treatment is available for just €120, while our one hour dermalux option offers even more pampering and revitalization at €160. No matter which you choose, HydraFacial will have your skin glowing after each session!
How Often To Get a Hydrafacial?
Depending on your skin condition, HydraFacials can be done as frequently as one week apart to improve problematic areas. Once you achieve a level of healthy skin, it is recommended that maintenance treatments are scheduled every six weeks
What’s The Best Time To Get a Hydrafacial?
No day is ever a bad time to get a HydraFacial – but for special occasions like weddings or other big events, we always suggest scheduling at least four weeks in advance. This way, if you have any sensitivities, there will be enough time to reduce the risk of reactions before the event. Similarly known as “the red carpet facial,” this treatment can also be had on-demand once you’ve experienced it prior!
Can You Have a Hydrafacial While Pregnant?
If you are pregnant, it is not recommended to receive a HydraFacial due to the serums and exfoliants that we apply during the treatment process. Salicylic acid in particular should be avoided while expecting.
What Is The Hydrafacial Aftercare?
To minimize potential irritation, avoid any strenuous exercise or sweating as well as saunas, steam rooms and jacuzzis. As this is an intensive exfoliation treatment, it’s essential to abstain from exfoliating for the five days following your appointment.
What Are Hydrafacial Side Effects?
Before beginning, we check to see if somebody has acne vulgaris, which is a very active form of acne. We also ensure that they aren’t pregnant or breastfeeding, diabetic, or have any allergies – particularly to honey, shellfish or aspirin. After you’ve confirmed that there are no serious risks, temporary redness or flushing may appear after the treatment – similar to when one exerts themselves. It typically subsides within 20 minutes to an hour. In rare cases, skin irritation can be experienced up to 72 hours later due to sensitivities- but this is preventable if necessary precautions have been taken prior to the treatment.
Who Can Perform a Hydrafacial?
Experienced skin health specialists who have completed the HydraFacial course are qualified to provide you with a high-quality hydrafacial. These technicians are knowledgeable and well-versed in all aspects of this procedure, so you know your session is in good hands!
Can You Get a Hydrafacial on Roaccutane
Unfortunately, it is not recommended to receive a HydraFacial while taking roaccutane. Depending on how long and at what dose you were taking the treatment, you should wait up to six months after finishing your roaccutane prescription before trying out this amazing skincare service. However, please note that HydraFacial works for all skin types other than those with severe rashes or sunburns and moderate-to-severe cases of rosacea.
What Are The Hydrafacial Procedure Steps?
The first step is to uncover a more radiant layer of your skin with Cleanse and Peel, which will delicately exfoliate dead cells without any post-peel scaling. Next step is to Extract and Hydrate that works to clear away any impurities that clog your pores, while saturating the skin with a plethora of invigorating moisturizers for amplified hydration. The next step is to add Hyaluronic Acid and Peptides imbuing your face with healthiness as the Red LED benefits bring an extra sparkle to your visage while Blue LED target bacteria responsible for oily or congested skin making your skin shine brighter than ever!
Can You Dermaplane Before a Hydrafacial?
While it may be possible to receive both treatments on the same day, we strongly advise against it. Reports of excessive purging and skin eruptions due to sensitivities appear frequently when this is attempted. Therefore, we recommend scheduling each treatment separately in order to reduce any potential risk for adverse reactions or breakout episodes. While certain clinics offer a combination treatment option, Amara does not. In cases like these, it’s best practice to always consult the doctor before proceeding with an additional service prior to your appointment.
Can You Get a Hydrafacial While on Accutane?
Unfortunately, receiving a HydraFacial is not recommended for those taking accutane. Depending on the duration and dosage of your treatment, you should wait up to six months after finishing your prescription before trying this incredible skincare service. However, please remember that HydraFacials are suitable for all skin types – aside from severe cases of sunburns, rashes or rosacea.
Can You Get a Hydrafacial While on Retinol?
Absolutely, they can be carried out simultaneously. But if you use medical-grade retinol products, it is suggested that you stop using them four days prior to the HydraFacial. This way, your skin won’t suffer any negative reactions caused by combining these two treatments together.
How Often Should You Get a Hydrafacial?
The frequency of HydraFacials varies depending on your skin condition. If you want to target a specific problematic skin condition, you can get a HydraFacial every week. For maintenance treatments, it is recommended that you get one every six weeks.
