Are HydraFacials worth the hype?

The buzz continues on the HydraFacial. And to be honest, we’re not sure it’ll ever really stop. With celebrity approval from the likes of Beyonce and Kate Winslet and many more, it’s easy to be influenced to try this new treatment.

Considered by many to be the treatment of the moment – HydraFacial has over 600 million views on TikTok (a number that just keeps on climbing!). 

With a slightly higher price tag than a standard spa facial, our patients always ask us…is this skin care treatment really worth all the hype? 

We’ve put together a full breakdown of the infamous HydraFacial – what it is, how it works, what the benefits are, and how much it costs. By the end of this blog, you’ll know everything there is to know about this treatment.

What is a HydraFacial?

First things first, what actually is it? 

A HydraFacial is one of the most powerful non-invasive skin treatments available in the USA and worldwide. It combines cleansing, exfoliating, extraction, and hydration to deliver more dramatic results than the average facial. This patented skin treatment can be used on nearly every skin tone and can help treat various skin conditions, from acne to wrinkles. 

Sounds too good to be true? It’s about to get better – you get all this in just one 30-45 minute appointment with no recovery time!

How does a HydraFacial work?

What sets a HydraFacial apart from a spa facial is its patented 5 step process. Here’s a breakdown of what you can expect from your treatment:

Step 1: Detox

The first involves detoxing your skin. This helps to improve circulation, increase blood flow, and reduce harmful toxins.

Step 2: Cleanse & Peel

Your practitioner gently washes away dead skin cells and oily substances from the surface of your skin. Gently exfoliating the skin helps to reveal a fresh layer of skin. A non-irritant peel using salicylic acid also helps to loosen debris and gunk from your pores.

Step 3: Extract & Hydrate

Your practitioner will painlessly unblock clogged pores using suction. This removes impurities and blackheads. 

Step 4: Fuse & Protect

Then, your skin will be nourished and hydrated by a mix of antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid for maximum glow and protection. 

Step 5: Rejuvenation

Finally, your practitioner will use red and infrared light on your skin. This light promotes the growth of collagen and lessens your skin’s redness, so you can start enjoying the results immediately! 

What can HydraFacials treat?

One of the main reasons why people are going so crazy over HydraFacial treatments is the results. This treatment can reduce signs of aging, such as unsightly wrinkles and fine lines, increase your skin’s firmness and elasticity, and give your skin a refreshed and hydrated glow!

And that’s not all…. HydraFacials can also:

  • Reduce the appearance of folds and creases 
  • Even out your skin tone 
  • Make your skin look vibrant and nourished 
  • Improve your skin’s texture and reduce the look of uneven skin
  • Treat hyperpigmentation and other skin conditions
  • Help with oily skin and reduce clogged pores
  • Minimise enlarged pores

What are the benefits of a HydraFacial?

Now you know what a HydraFacial is and how it works, you’re probably pretty impressed. But how does a HydraFacial compare to other facial treatments?

HydraFacial’s patented 5-step process means it’s worlds apart from a standard facial. We’ve covered the main benefits of opting for a HydraFacial below.

Suitable for all skin types and tones

Whether your skin is dry and sensitive or oily and prone to acne, a HydraFacial can work wonders. 

No downtime

There’s minimal to no recovery time for HydraFacials. However, we recommend that our clients avoid any exercise or using any exfoliating agents for the first 24 hours.  

Few side effects

There are very few side effects associated with HydraFacials. Some people might experience mild redness, but this will clear up in under 24 hours, and then you can start enjoying your refreshed skin!

Fully customizable

HydraFacials can be tailored to your unique skin and goals. Facial Aesthetics offers specially designed boosts. One of our most popular is our Dermabuilder Boost which recharges your skin with peptides to minimize the signs of aging. 

Immediate results

Unlike some skin treatments where you might need to wait days or even weeks for the full effect to be revealed, the results are instant with a HydraFacial.  


Because the treatment is entirely non-invasive, you don’t need to stress about any scary needles or harmful side effects. 

Younger looking healthy skin 

HydraFacial’s unique and innovative 5-step process makes your skin look healthier and younger.

You can combine HydraFacials with other skin treatments to achieve your aesthetic goals.
