all about hydrafacial: elevate’s most popular facial treatment

Hydrafacial has become a widely popular name among estheticians and skincare gurus alike – and for good reason. Once you experience the addicting “Hydrafacial glow,” you never look back! This treatment’s focus on visible results has made it popular nationwide and our most booked facial treatment at Elevate South Tampa. Whether it’s before an event or part of your monthly skincare maintenance, you will love how this treatment transforms your skin.

What is a Hydrafacial?

Unlike traditional facials, Hydrafacials are performed using a machine rather than by hand for deeper product penetration. The unique handpiece works like a vacuum to deeply cleanse pores and extract impurities. After performing a skin evaluation, double cleansing, and dermaplaning, every treatment includes these steps:

Step 1: Vortex Exfoliation

We start by opening the pores and removing the first layer of dead skin cells and debris, cleansing the skin and preparing for deeper extractions.

Step 2: Vortex Peel

Glycolic and salicylic acid provide a gentle chemical peel to clear pores and smooth fine lines, and reduce texture. Unlike traditional chemical peels, this step will not cause heavy peeling or flaking while still providing brightening and smoothing benefits.

Step 3: Vortex Extraction

This most satisfying part! Say goodbye to pesky blackheads and clogged pores, especially around the nose. The Vortex extraction acts as a gentle vacuum cleaner on your skin, removing dead skin cells, blackheads, and other debris without damaging the skin.

Step 4: Vortex Fusion Serum Application

Now that the skin has been deeply cleansed and exfoliated, it’s ready to be renourished and hydrated for that famous Hydrafacial glow. The wand then infuses the skin with a cocktail of hydrating antioxidant and peptide serums

Every treatment ends with sunscreen application to protect your newly hydrated new skin.

What benefits do Hydrafacials provide?

Hydrafacials address an array of skin concerns, and almost anyone can benefit from the treatment.
