Understanding HydraFacial

HydraFacial is a non-invasive, multi-step treatment that combines the benefits of next-level hydradermabrasion, a chemical peel, automated painless extractions, and a special delivery of Antioxidants, Hyaluronic Acid, and Peptides. It does all of this in one quick treatment that delivers real results without downtime or irritation.

HydraFacial for Acne

A recent study titled "Efficacy and Tolerability of HydraFacial Clarifying Treatment Series in the Treatment of Active Acne Vulgaris" has shed light on the effectiveness of HydraFacial in treating acne. The study concludes that a series of six HydraFacial Clarifying Treatments can significantly improve overall skin appearance in patients with active acne.

The HydraFacial treatment is a non-pharmaceutical therapy, which means it does not expose patients to potential risks associated with pharmaceutical therapies such as retinoids and antibiotics. The treatment aligns with the requirements of being fast-acting, non-irritating, and non-bleaching. It can be administered by aestheticians, has no contra-indications, and can be used in conjunction with other treatments.

Results and Patient Satisfaction

The study found that the proportion of patients with no acne or almost clear skin increased significantly after the treatment series. The treatment was well tolerated by patients, with the most common symptoms being stinging and itching, which declined over the course of therapy.

Importantly, 100 percent of patients agreed or strongly agreed that their skin looked and felt cleaner and that they felt more confident in their appearance after the treatment. This points to the potential of HydraFacial not only as a physical treatment for acne but also as a confidence booster for those struggling with skin issues.

HydraFacial could be the game-changer you've been looking for in your fight against acne.
