How does HydraFacial work?
HydraFacial treatment is done using an instrument called HydraPeel which removes the dead cells from the skin and infuses it with serums and hydrating agents (anti-oxidant & anti-ageing).
Is there a difference between HydraFacial and Microdermabrasion?
HydraFacial is non-invasive while microdermabrasion is minimally invasive
Microdermabrasion uses a device called DermaSweep which has an abrasive tip for removing dead cells and pollutants from the skin whereas HydraFacial uses HydraPeel which has a vacuum tip and is much more gentler than the DermaSweep.
HydraFacial is suitable for all skin types whereas for Microdermabrasion you will need to consult a dermatologist if your skin type is suitable for the procedure.
