Protecting your skin is critical to your health, and two of our most popular facials can help. Both the Hydrafacial™ and the Cryoskin Facial can assist in skin rejuvenation and address various concerns, but they employ vastly different approaches. Let's dive into the intricacies of these non-invasive treatments to understand their differences and determine which might be the best fit for your skincare needs.

A Deep Dive into Hydration with the Hydrafacial™

The Hydrafacial is one of the most popular facials for its ability to deeply cleanse, exfoliate, extract, and hydrate the skin with just one treatment session. This facial is a great addition to your regular skincare routine for clients experiencing acne, dry skin, wrinkles, fine lines or sun damage.

The process:

  1. Cleansing and Exfoliation: The treatment begins with a gentle cleansing to remove surface impurities and dead skin cells. This step prepares the skin for the subsequent stages.
  2. Acid Peel: A blend of glycolic and salicylic acids is applied to the skin to loosen debris and unclog pores, promoting a clearer complexion.
  3. Extraction: The Hydrafacial device utilizes the patented Vortex-Fusion®, a unique vacuum technology, to painlessly extract debris from pores, reducing the appearance of blackheads and congestion.
  4. Hydration: Finally, the skin is infused with a cocktail of nourishing serums, including hyaluronic acid, antioxidants and peptides, to hydrate and protect, leaving it plump and radiant.

Hydrafacial™ benefits may include:

  • Deeply cleansed and detoxified the skin
  • Improved skin texture and tone
  • Reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Instant hydration and youthful glow

Suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin, you can choose from a 30-minute Signature Hydrafacial™, a 60-minute Premium Hydrafacial™ or a 90-minute Platinum Hydrafacial™ with one add-on and Red Light Therapy to boost the benefits. 

Frosty Rejuvenation with the Cryoskin™ Facial

On the other end of the spectrum, the Cryoskin Facial harnesses the power of cold therapy to revitalize the skin and promote a youthful appearance. Cryotherapy has long been used for its anti-inflammatory and skin-tightening effects, and the Cryoskin Facial takes this concept to the next level.

The process:

  1. Toning: The treatment begins with a cooling applicator that emits cold temperatures to constrict blood vessels and stimulate collagen production. This helps to reduce puffiness, tighten pores, and improve skin elasticity.
  2. Lifting: Using a specialized technique to target specific areas of concern, such as the jawline or under-eye area, this part of the process uses precision cooling to sculpt and lift the skin for a more contoured appearance.
  3. Facial Massage: The facial concludes with a relaxing massage using cold therapy to soothe the skin and enhance circulation, promoting a natural glow from within.

Cryoskin™ Facial benefits may include:

  • Reduced inflammation and puffiness
  • Tightened and firmer skin
  • Stimulated collagen production to boost anti-aging effects
  • Enhanced circulation and lymphatic drainage

Choosing the Right Facial for You

When deciding between a Hydrafacial™ and a Cryoskin Facial, consider your specific skincare concerns and desired outcomes. If you're looking for deep hydration, exfoliation, and overall skin rejuvenation, our Hydrafacial may be the ideal choice. Alternatively, if you're focused on firming, sculpting, and reducing inflammation, the CryoskinFacial could be more suited to your needs.

Ultimately, both treatments offer unique benefits and can be customized to address individual skin concerns. Consult with one of our estheticians to help you determine which facial is best to help you achieve your desired results. Whichever you choose, ensure you're pairing your regular skincare routine with adequate hydration, sleep, diet and exercise, along with our professional skin health treatments to maintain healthy, radiant skin for years to come.
