Are Hydrafacials worth it?

The Hydrafacial is a-maz-ing: it uses a tiny water vortex to extract impurities from your pores, and—with the same wand—infuse your skin with goodness! Our clients see smoother texture, brighter and more even tone, and fewer breakouts with regular Hydrafacials. The best part is that this is actually a relaxing experience, without downtime, so you get the spa facial experience you want along with the real results you expect from a med spa treatment. It’s no wonder the Hydrafacial has a hugely impressive 98% “Worth it” rating on RealSelf!

Our Asheville med spa team agrees—just as we’re all about keeping up with our Botox, we all take time to get our Hydrafacials! If you still need convincing, here’s why booking regular Hydrafacial treatments are worth it:

Reasons a Hydrafacial is worth it

A single, all-in-one treatment

Hydrafacial is a one-stop shop—it clears out pores, exfoliates, hydrates, and gently infuses your skin with anti-aging and hydrating ingredients. Benefits of a Hydrafacial include smaller appearing pores, glowing skin, and reduced fine line and wrinkles. In essence, this treatment is more than just relaxing. 

Reach your #skingoals

If you have an additional specific issue you want to treat, Hydrafacials can be fine-tuned with boosters that target concerns such as…

  • Dark spots
  • Enlarged pores
  • Redness
  • Breakouts
  • Fine lines and wrinkles

With more comprehensive benefits than most other medspa treatments, Hydrafacial is an investment in your skin’s health and appearance!

Gentle & safe for all skin types

The Hydrafacial is powerful, to be sure, but it’s also gentle on your skin. There’s no manual extraction of blackheads, like with a traditional facial, which can be uncomfortable and cause irritation if you have sensitive skin. Instead, the Hydrafacial uses a water jet to flush out your pores, and exfoliates using gentle ingredients like glycolic acid rather than abrasive scraping or sloughing. And the ingredients in this facial are safe for all skin types and tones. 

No downtime

There’s zero downtime after a Hydrafacial, so you won’t have to take special care of your skin or avoid outdoor activities (like you need to after chemical peels or laser treatments). Not only is there no downtime, but you’ll see an instant “glow”! This makes Hydrafacial the perfect spa treatment if you’re preparing for a special event or have a demanding schedule without room for several days away from the public eye. Get out, enjoy your results, and keep using your same makeup and skincare routine after your Hydrafacial.

How can I make the most of my Hydrafacial?

Stay consistent

The best Hydrafacial results come from regular treatments every 4-6 weeks, so get them on the regular! While a single facial will certainly leave you glowing, just a single Hydrafacial may not be worth it if you’re hoping to see mega results, such as reduction of acne or pigmentation issues. Rather, a series of Hydrafacials is best when it comes to seeing noteworthy results.

Start with exfoliation

We love to prep your skin for Hydrafacial with dermaplaning, a gentle manual exfoliation. This will prime your skin to get the maximum benefits from a Hydrafacial.

Use a booster

Our Asheville medical spa offers a range of Hydrafacial boosters, from brightening to collagen-producing, to help you see targeted results faster. Your provider will help you choose based on your goals for your skin!

When a Hydrafacial is not for you

There are a few situations where you may be happier with a different skin treatment, especially if you have advanced skin concerns that could be better served with more intensive skin renewal options: 

  • Acne scars: Improving the appearance of scarring requires modalities that stimulate collagen remodeling and thus smooth the skin’s texture.
  • Advanced signs of aging: While Hydrafacial may temporarily soften the appearance of fine lines, if you have more advanced fine lines and wrinkles you’d like to address, you may need a deeper treatment option.
  • Melasma or hyperpigmentation: Advanced or widespread hyperpigmentation is more than a surface issue and best served with a targeted laser or light-based treatment.

Alternative treatments to a Hydrafacial

If you are looking for more transformative medspa treatment results, or want to level up your Hydrafacial results, consider these additional non-surgical options, which also require little-to-no downtime. For skin surface texture and pigmentation improvements, consider Chemical peels, Laser skin rejuvenation, and/or Microneedling. If advanced, targeted anti-wrinkle treatment is needed, our medical injectors provide beautiful results with Botox® and Juvéderm®. Botox-type injectables stop upper-face wrinkles in the forehead and eye area, while dermal fillers like Juvéderm can be used to address age-related volume loss, enhance your lips, and soften the appearance of deep wrinkles, among other uses.
