In a new study published in the Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology (JCAD), Hydrafacial™ reported that 100-percent of study participants reported clearer, less-inflamed skin after a series of clarifying Hydrafacial treatments. The treatment consisted of the brand’s patented vortex fusion device paired with blue LED light.

During the 12-week assessment, study participants, ranging in age from 19 to 48 and with varied skin tones, received a clarifying Hydrafacial treatment from a trained esthetician every two weeks. All participants reported a significant improvement in acne severity, finding they had fewer acne lesions and cleaner, more radiant-looking skin.

Additionally, participants reported a significant boost in confidence in their appearance at the conclusion of the study, growing from 40 percent feeling more confident after their first treatment to 100 percent, after their final treatment.

“Anyone who has ever experienced acne understands the desire to find a solution that truly works and can help them feel more confident in their appearance. Our hope is that these findings encourage anyone suffering from acne to try this clarifying treatment and see the results for themselves,” said BeautyHealth Chief Medical Officer and study co-author Dr. Jwala Karnik.

What makes Hydrafacial different from a traditional facial?

Hydrafacial uses Vortex-Fusion® Technology, which exfoliates the skin, but at the same time, also infuses your skin with different serums. Beyond clarifying benefits, every Hydrafacial treatment is highly customizable via a portfolio of more than 20 boosters designed to address individual skin concerns. 

How does Hydrafacial work?

HydraFacial exfoliates the top layer of your skin, but at the same time, it will hydrate your skin with targeted serums, making it very personalized according to your needs and/or preferences. 

What should I expect from a Hydrafacial?

HydraFacial includes three main steps.

  • Cleanse and exfoliate: Cleansing the face removes dead skin cells and excess oils from the skin.
  • Vacuum extractions: A mix of salicylic and glycolic acid is applied to the skin to break up any dirt or oil that is clogged in the pores. Then, blackheads, dirt and oil are extracted via patented Vortex-Fusion® Technology.
  • ‍Instant hydration: Hyaluronic acid, antioxidants and peptides are infused into the skin via Patented Vortex-Fusion® Technology, which adds nourishment and hydration to the skin.
  • Ask about the Circadia® Oxygen Facial add-on service to boost skin clarity and brightness.
