I have been getting Hydrafacials for as long as I can remember. Recently, I visited my favorite spa, HAAS Wellness, for a quick hydrating pick-me-up since my skin was acting out. Ginger, my facialist, was doing all these cool things using a machine and I quietly asked her if I am getting something other than a Hydrafacial. To my surprise she was performing the actual Hydrafacial facial (OK GRETA how many times will you say Hydrafacial in this post?). Apparently, all these years I have been tricked and charged more than I should have been for what I thought I was getting but meanwhile I haven’t been getting the actual Hydrafacial. WTH! Why were all these other spas claiming to perform a Hydrafacial when they were really just cleansing and exfoliating my face????
I guess the silver lining is that I finally got a real Hydrafacial?!
OK OK I’m done saying Hydrafacial!
Here’s what the real deal looks like people:
Step 1: Actually use the company’s products.
Step 2: Pre-cleanse the skin.
Step 3: Cleanse/Exfoliate the skin.
The Hydrafacial machine cleanses and exfoliates all in one! AMAZING!
Step 4: Acid peel with GlySal Prep.
“GlySal Prep = 7.5% Glycolic Acid and 2% Salicylic Acid Peel. Combines the benefits of aggressive exfoliation and chemical peels into a one-step resurfacing procedure.The result combines accelerated peel benefits with visible skin rejuvenation and no irritation.” Read more about this fabulous combo here.
Step 5: Extractions.
Step 6: Optional booster- I had the Britenol booster which brightens the skin.
What Ginger did was let the machine release the concentrate onto my skin then move it all over that specific area. Then she would go over that area with the machine.
Step 7: Vortex-fusion- hydrates and infuses antioxidants.
Step 8: Finished off with antioxidant serum, moisturizer and SPF!
Step 9: Check out all the crap that came out of your face.
Yuck! Glad all this gunk is out!
Here’s a little breakdown of the facial:
