You may have heard of microdermabrasion, which is a non-invasive skin treatment that is used to exfoliate the skin. Crystals are applied to the skin to be removed with a diamond-tipped vacuum, along with dirt, bacteria and makeup that have gotten clogged in the skin.
What is Hydro Microdermabrasion?
Hydro Microdermabrasion is tailored to sensitive skin, using water jets instead of crystals to soften the skin. The vacuum is then dragged along the skin to gently exfoliate and decongest.
Hydro Microdermabrasion has longer lasting results than normal microdermabrasion, as the skin is more hydrated after the service. The treatment is usually used to remove dead skin cells and congestion built up in the skin, which reveals, smooth and refreshed skin. This can help reduce fine lines, acne scarring and the appearance of pores. The practice also helps skin care products work more efficiently.
Is it Safe?
Because the treatment is non-invasive, which means the procedure is done on the outer layer of the skin, it is a generally safe procedure. The skin will feel tight after the treatment and will be a bit red from the vacuum, however, it should go down a few hours after. It is recommended not to go out in the sun for a few days and to keep the skin protected with SPF.
How Much Does It Cost?
The procedure is usually around $90-$150 depending on the procedure and is usually completed with a facial.
Should You Add It to Your Services?
A beautician in this service will need to be trained in order to use the microdermabrasion machine, however, the cost and benefits of the procedure give a great advantage to your salon. This treatment is perfect for skincare based salons, however, if you are just starting out with facial treatments, it may be beneficial to start out with the basics.
