Hydrafacial Aftercare

Do many people wonder what to do after a facial? If you are also one of them, then you are on the right track. There is no downtime in hydrafacial as it deep cleanses your face. So you must avoid harsh products or chemical peels to get the desired results.

Here are some of the hydrafacial aftercare tips to guide you after hydrafacial results and treatment. Everyone should follow the pre and post instructions to get the best results out of the treatment. 

Pre-treatment instructions

  • Before treatment, one should discontinue the use of any isotretinoin products like Accutane for 6 months. But if one's clinician approves it, then you can use them.
  • For 2 weeks before your treatment, refrain from any medium and deep cleansing treatments.
  • If you have undergone botox, wait for 1 week, and if one has availed fillers, then wait for 2 weeks to get the hydrafacial treatment. You can have botox and fillers on the same day but not hydrafacial.
  • Shaving is not recommended on the day of the treatment for men. Contrary to this, if you choose to shave, shave at least 3-4 hours before your treatment.

Hydrafacial aftercare

Usually, people are done with the hydrafacial in less than an hour, and no downtime is required. You can resume your normal activities right away after hydrafacial and not like harsher procedures like chemical peels. Usually, there are very few chances of you experiencing redness or peeling, but it's still best to avoid exfoliating treatments for a few days after the facial

Have a look at some of the hydrafacial aftercare tips on different days. 

Day 1

One should sincerely stay away from heat for the first 24 hours after the treatment. It is best to take a lukewarm shower or bath instead of getting a hot one. Refrain from performing intense cardio and opt for the personal deadlift. Also, refrain from unwinding in the sauna. Lastly, do not apply makeup, especially on the day of the treatment, if possible. 

Day 2 

You should still avoid using any product containing tretinoin during the first 48 hours after your treatment session. One should avoid other types of exfoliating treatments like waxing and depilatories. Lastly, do not use over-the-counter acne medications for the two days of the treatment. 

Day 3

You must protect your skin from sun damage for the first three to five days after your hydrafacial treatment. The treatment is highly effective in removing the top layers of the dead skin cells. By way of doing this, a layer of fresh and healthy skin cells is exposed, and these are generally more vulnerable.

During the hours of 10 AM- 2 PM, limit the amount of time your face is exposed to the sun. Besides this, for the first 72 hours after treatment, it would be best to avoid tanning beds.

  • Can we use other treatments after hydrafacial?

    The hydrafacial treatment is best to improve the skin's condition and address several issues simultaneously, but for better results and outcomes, you can combine this treatment with other treatments. Above this, the absorption of moisturizers and other ointments becomes better with the exfoliation treatments. Not only this, but it also increases the effectiveness of the treatment.

Besides this, the people will not need much downtime or healing after the treatment. People with busy schedules can easily avail of it as the treatment is great for such people because this keeps the people carrying on their daily activities.

  • How many treatments are needed to see results?

    It takes less than an hour to complete, and you can see its effects in one week. After the first session, the results will be visible to you, but it will be more beneficial for you if you get more than one session. We recommend including the treatment as part of your monthly skincare routine for long-term skin health. You can reduce the effects of aging and get rid of dark spots from the skin by fixing the monthly appointment with the dermatologist, as this will yield you the best results. The regular monthly treatments can also help you with enlarged pores or oily skin. The hydrafacial treatments at Beverly Hills Med Spa include extraction, exfoliation, hydration, and cleansing procedures. In return, you will get clear and more beaming skin. We recommend proper hydrafacial aftercare as it is necessary to maintain the results despite the soothing process and forms the crucial part of post facial care.
