Hydrafacial vs. Microdermabrasion – Which Is Better?

It probably comes as no surprise to you that there’s a world of difference between these two popular treatments….but let’s get into the detail of Hydrafacial v’s microdermabrasion.

Hydrafacial uses a specialist vortex fusion technology that gently exfoliates the top layer of dead skin cells without damaging the underlying layers. It’s an effective way to treat active acne, acne scarring, ageing, pigmentation and brightness of the skin! Microdermabrasion relies on coarse abrasives to physically scrape the skin surface. There just isn’t the same level of precision and effect as there is with Hydrafacial. 


How Does Hydrafacial Work?

Hydrafacial works by using a handheld device with a spiral design that resurfaces the uppermost layers of the skin. This special design removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells, revealing healthy, younger-looking skin underneath and swirling them away in the vortex! This process stimulates cellular renewal to reveal healthy new fresh skin which is ready to absorb topical products to its full potential.

What’s the Difference Between Hydrafacial and Microdermabrasion?

HydraFacial is essentially a more sophisticated kind of Microdermabrasion, and it’s also known as “HydraDermabrasion”.

Where microdermabrasion stops with scraping off the uppermost layer of skin cells, Hydrafacial gives the full package of hydro-exfoliation and a deep cleansing facial, peel and anti-oxidant facial. It’s a medical-grade face resurfacing treatment with no downtime and rapid results. 

The HydraFacial is a multi-step procedure that may be tailored to your specific needs compared with a one-size-fits-all for the microdermabrasion.

Why should I consider Hydrafacial over Microdermabrasion?

Most people know that Hydrafacial treatment reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. But did you know that Hydrafacial has been shown to improve the appearance of acne scars, rosacea, pigment problems and other skin issues too? In addition, it’s a much more relaxing and enjoyable treatment than microdermabrasion and holds much more science and evidence behind the results. 

What does Hydrafacial involve?

HydraFacial is a multi-step process which involves cleansing and exfoliating the skin, extracting blackheads and debris from the pores and rejuvenating and hydrating the skin to reveal fresh skin which is healthy and bright in appearance. HydraFacial can also target specific concerns such as anti-ageing, pigmentation, acne, congestion and redness and sensitivity of the skin.
