I already heard a lot about the Hydrafacial treatment last year, especially by my blogger colleagues. But I had not tried it yet, however, so I was even happier to try this new and gentle treatment at Skin Apart Lucerne with the lovely Katja Block.
As I tend to have oily skin, I regularly struggle with blemishes and enlarged pores. Accordingly, I have already tried some other treatments such as microdermabrasion. However, this method was then too much and quite painful for my skin, because in microdermabrasion, the dead skin cells are getting abraded. The Hydrafacial treatment, on the other hand, removes the dead skin cells and impurities much more gently with a water jet and a pad.
Before the hydrafacial treatment started, the skin will be cleaned to getting prepared for the treatment. Then the skin got treated with a special device. In doing so, the dead skin cells and the dirt are removed with a water jet and a pad and the water is getting sucked off immediately. Subsequently, an intense serum is applied, which can inject its active ingredients directly into the skin after treatment.
The removed cell material and the dirt then remain in the residual water. That’s how it looked to me after my hydrafacial. During the treatment and also right after the treatment, I felt that my skin was working. My skin tolerated the treatment very well, the few small redness disappeared within 1 – 2 hours. Basically, the Hydrafacial is of course more a treatment for improving the skin, but not for Katja. For every treatment gives her the feeling of a wellness treatment, through her own style and a relaxing facial massage.
Who needs a Hydrafacial?
Basically, a Hydrafacial is suitable for every skin type and not only contributes to the improvement of skin health, but also helps with various skin problems such as:
- Hyperpigmentation / sun damage
