HydraFacial uses HydraDermabrasion rather than MicroDermabrasion and the difference between the two is quite significant. We know that exfoliation is extremely important for your beauty regime and vital to maintaining your skins health, however, with the consistent barrage of pollution, air conditioning, and a variety of other aspects, our skin often needs an extra exfoliating boost. In a nutshell, MicroDermabrasion uses micro-crystals to remove the top layer of dead skin. The wand used is similar to fine sandpaper for the skin, and although this can be adjusted for different skin types and textures, this can cause redness for many skin types.
HydraDermabrasion uses water and oxygen to create a vortex system. At high velocity, this water and oxygen removes dead skin, encourages circulation (which in turns encourages collagen and elastin production), while banishing blackheads, dark circles and even scaring.
HydraDermabrasion is the holy grail or gold standing for exfoliation, and much more suitable to all skin types.
