With so many skincare options on the market today, you may have missed the HydraFacial. If you’re new to the treatment, buckle up, because it’s a game changer.
HydraFacials promote skin health through a three-step process that focuses on cleansing, exfoliating, and hydrating your skin. You may be asking, “Isn’t that what all facials do?” The answer is yes and no.
Our founder, Dr. Kalpana DePasquale explained the difference like this: “I refer to normal facials as a ‘fluff and buff.’ They’re relaxing but don’t really have any medical benefits.” While we’re all for relaxation, Kalvera’s primary focus is supporting healthy skin. “A HydraFacial is relaxing and has a real impact on skin health because it suctions impurities out of your pores.”
In fact, the HydraFacial is more like getting microdermabrasion, extractions, and a peel at the same time. You’re probably thinking “ouch,” which is understandable. Traditionally, getting all of these treatments on the same day would leave your face inflamed to say the least. But HydraFacials are not only painless, they’re also irritation-free thanks to constant hydration at each step of the process.
Imagine a little vortex traveling over your skin. As the vortex goes over your pores, it uses suction to remove the unwanted stuff while simultaneously filling the newly clear pore with a mixture of serums that can help with a whole slew of skin issues ranging from fine lines and acne to sun damage and dark spots.
So who should be getting the HydraFacial? Dr. DePasquale says everyone.
“Everyone can benefit from a HydraFacial because it uses targeted serums to help with skin issues like breakouts, while also exfoliating and extracting dead skin. And of course, the biggest benefit is the hydration and infusion of peptides and antioxidants to improve your skin’s health.”
In a world filled with more and more pollutants, pressures, and stress, a focus on full-body wellness is more important than ever. Dr. DePasquale sees the HydraFacial as a 30-minute reset for your skin, giving it “a chance to breathe and heal from the rigors of everyday life.”
