14 Nov What is Hydrodermabrasion & How Does it Work?
Many people are familiar with the term microdermabrasion when it comes to the skincare and beauty industry, but there’s another procedure called hydrodermabrasion. Some people get them confused and think they are the same, when in fact they are two different procedures.
Let’s take a look at what hydrodermabrasion is all about and how it can benefit you and help you achieve your skincare goals.
What Is Hydrodermabrasion?
Not to be confused with microdermabrasion, hydrodermabrasion is a method of gently exfoliating the skin without the use of abrasive crystals. The result is a far more comfortable experience for the person undergoing the treatment. It’s the method of choice for individuals with particularly sensitive skin.
The result is smooth, healthy skin with a more even tone and complexion.
How Does Hydrodermabrasion Work?
Using a diamond-tipped wand with an abrasive disk instead of spraying crystals, hydrodermabrasion is a method to evenly and effectively exfoliate the skin. The dermatologist operates a hand-held nozzle that is filled with a saline solution and oxygen. The combination of abrasive disk, saline and oxygen readily removes the dead skin layer to reveal the fresh, healthy skin beneath.
With a practised hand, the dermatologist will evenly cover every portion of the face and pay particular attention to any scars or problem areas.
Water-based products used in the procedure are mild and generally pain-free.
Hydrodermabrasion Benefits and Advantages
The benefits of hydrodermabrasion are significant. As mentioned in the section above, the procedure is far more painless than undergoing the more abrasive procedure of microdermabrasion. Another issue with microdermabrasion is crystals can get left behind on the skin. Although these are vacuumed up, if any remain, they can irritate and damage the skin.
For anyone suffering from acne scars, hydrodermabrasion has been proven to be particularly effective in diminishing them so they are far less visible. In some cases, the scars may disappear altogether. It also helps to reduce dark spots and areas of hyper-pigmentation.
Hydrodermabrasion also keeps your skin looking fresh and clean and gives it a noticeable, youthful glow. The process improves blood flow to the skin, which also results in a healthier appearance.
One of the key reasons many people undergo the hydrodermabrasion procedure is to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. This method is highly effective in achieving this result and one of the reasons why hydrodermabrasion is so popular.
Following the hydrodermabrasion procedure, an individual will leave looking a feeling refreshed, with hydrated skin, a more even skin tone, wrinkles and acne scars less visible and a general all-round, healthy glow. The ultimate result is a more youthful appearance.
If you really want to achieve your skincare goals, hydrodermabrasion is definitely a procedure you should try.
