What's included in a Hydrofacial

Skinworx is a leading skin care center in San Francisco and for a good reason. With heavy exfoliations and painful skin treatments a thing of the past for us, we can assure that the hydrafacial you schedule with us will be treatments you’ll keep coming back to receive. Hydrafacials are the newest and most innovative facial treatment on the market today, and many individuals (men and women) benefit from this facial care regimen. Moreover, there have been some questions about the hydrafacial, such as “What are the steps?” Let us help ease your mind.

The Painless Steps of a Hydrafacial

Step 1: Cleansing and exfoliation. Let us sweep all of your facial skin’s dead skin cells away. By using what is called a deplaning tool, we will sweep away all of the dead skin cells and debris, such as makeup. It will also help to open up your pores – the first step to increased skin hydration.

Step 2: Acid Peel. We know that the words “acid peel” may leave you feeling a little anxious or worrisome, but don’t let it fool you. We understand that your past experiences with glycolic peels left you with stinging skin and uncomfortable sensations, but our acid peel is different than most in that it won’t sting or leave you feeling uncomfortable. The acid peel we use on your skin is gentle enough to go unnoticed; some may feel the faintest tingle, but it does not cause discomfort.

Step 3: Extractions. One of the most fascinating, or disgusting, parts of the treatment is the extraction stage. This type of extraction uses a nozzle that acts as a vacuum, sucking gunk out of your clogged pores. Unlike during traditional facials, we forego performing manual extractions. We’ve found a less painful and irritating option! During this step of your hydrafacial, our technician will perform an elaborate vortex-extraction.

Step 4: Serum application: Another tool we’ll use during your hydrafacial is called the vortex-fusion tool. This tool applies a collagen and antioxidant serum into the skin to promote hydration and elasticity. Usually, serums can leave your face feeling like it’s burning; however, our serum is designed to promote wellness in and on your skin, leaving all chances of redness and irritation behind.
