Facials aren’t only for pampering and treating yourself during a well-earned day at the spa. Many patients don’t realize a facial is a powerful medical treatment that can improve your skin’s appearance and health. And when you’re looking to get a facial, the HydraFacial is the gold standard.
How often should you get a facial? Should you make these treatments part of your regular regimen, or is an occasional treatment enough to improve your skin? Keep reading for our advice on the HydraFacial or contact MAE Plastic Surgery for personalized skin care advice.
What Is a HydraFacial?
As one of the most cutting-edge facials on the market, the HydraFacial uses a multi-step process to dramatically improve your skin’s look and feel.
A HydraFacial includes:
- Skin-boosting serum
- Antioxidants and advanced skin nutrition
- At-home treatments to extend and maintain results
HydraFacial’s unique six-part treatment is safe for all skin types and tones.
How Often Should You Get a HydraFacial?
A HydraFacial can get your skin red carpet-ready. Many patients turn to this powerful treatment before events such as weddings or family reunions to quickly improve and enhance their skin’s appearance.
While a one-time treatment can provide results, the best way to experience the HydraFacial is regularly. Dr. Epstein recommends his patients receive a HydraFacial every four to six weeks. With consistent treatment, patients can address various concerns like acne, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone. Regular treatment ensures you always look your best. Why should you only enjoy beautiful skin on special occasions?
Can You Get Too Many HydraFacials?
Despite its ability to provide transformative results, the HydraFacial is a safe and gentle skin treatment. Frequent HydraFacials probably won’t damage your skin, but they likely wouldn’t benefit you, either. Spacing out appointments four to six weeks apart is the ideal schedule for most patients, maximizing your results while minimizing the number of visits needed to maintain your glow.
Because we customize treatment to each patient’s needs, our skin care experts may recommend receiving a HydraFacial more or less frequently. We’ll create a schedule specifically for you.
Will I Need to Miss Work After a HydraFacial?
A HydraFacial is a non-surgical, no-downtime treatment. You can immediately resume your favorite activities, with little to no post-treatment redness or other embarrassing side effects.
I’m Too Busy for a Monthly Facial
We know everyone is juggling a hectic schedule of work and family responsibilities. While we recommend getting a HydraFacial every four to six weeks, you don’t need to come in that often if your schedule doesn’t allow. Let our experts provide you with a customized treatment plan based on your needs, lifestyle, and budget.
While regular facials are a time commitment, they can save you time in the long run. For example, a HydraFacial requires significantly less downtime than a facelift. Many of our busiest patients use this treatment to delay invasive procedures. Combine your facial with BOTOX® or fillers to smooth wrinkles and fade lines.
