It looks like the popular skin-clearing treatment, microdermabrasion, has some serious competition. Known as the “celebrity facial,” hydrodermabrasion is the latest and greatest way to remove dead cells from the skin to eliminate dark spots and hyperpigmentation. With less pain and irritation than the traditional diamond-tipped treatment, this modern technology uses water and oxygen to effortlessly exfoliate the skin. It’s no wonder the treatment is reportedly a favourite of celebrity stunners like Charlize Theron.
“It’s one the most dynamic skin treatments currently on the market,” says Los Angeles expert aesthetician Gina Mari. It doesn’t pose the risk for irritation and it allows your dermatologist or aesthetician to treat the skin when it is most susceptible for product penetration. The treatment features what beauty pros call Dermal infusion, “which is a non-invasive exfoliation and product delivery system.”
So who is it best for? Sensitive skin types that might not be able to handle the harshness of heavy exfoliation will love this gentler option. Also, “someone that wants to shine for a big event,” says Dr. Beer, as the treatment is known for giving a red carpet-worthy “glow.”
