Hydrafacial for Sensitive Skin

Zoe Myers
Checked By Zoe Myers

Sensitive skin can mean a lot of different things to different people but, generally, it refers to skin that doesn’t tolerate many skin products, chemicals and fragrances. 

People who suffer from sensitive skin may experience uneven skin tone, redness and/or inflammation, and will generally avoid trying anything new on their skin. 

If this sounds like you, it could be worth giving Hydrafacial facial treatment a go. The hydra-dermabrasion procedure is a gentler approach that can be used on all skin types unlike traditional facials and many people with sensitive skin rave about their results. 

How Does Hydrafacial Treat Sensitive Skin?

Hydrafacial treatments can treat many skin concerns and help sensitive skin. Hydrafacial treatment involves:

  • Detoxes: Uses lymphatic drainage to improve circulation and eliminate toxins
  • Cleanses: Gentle exfoliation uncovers a new layer of skin
  • Extracts and Hydrates: Painless suction removes dead skin cells and debris from pores and the skin is nourished with intense nourishing and hydrating serums
  • Fuses and Protects: Skin is saturated with antioxidants and peptides to maximise glow and improve the skin's natural protective barrier
  • Rejuvenates: Red and infrared LED light is used to reduce redness and stimulate collagen 

This unique combination will also restore your skin’s natural barrier function, to reduce sensitivity over time. It also helps to strengthen the skin as it's a skin health treatment.

How Effective Is Hydrafacial for Sensitive Skin?

If you suffer from sensitive skin, Hydrafacial treatment is a lovely soothing treatment that not only helps your general concerns but also improves skin health making it more resilient in the long run.

The patented Vortex delivery system used also allows for deeper exfoliation in less time, making it a really efficient treatment option! 

Note that some ingredients in the solutions available may not be suitable for your sensitivity, so ensure you have a detailed consultation with your practitioner beforehand. If you are concerned you can ask for a patch test from the clinic, if you have had a reaction to a specific skin ingredient let the clinic know this so that you can cross-reference with the Hydrafacial ingredients. Hydrafacial treatment uses acids which can sound really scary and be off-putting to sensitive skin types but your skin is naturally more acidic so your skin loves acids and they are integral to restoring optimum barrier function and maintaining the delicate acid mantel of the skin.

How Often Should I Have Hydrafacial Treatment for My Sensitive Skin?

Just one treatment can make a difference. To really strengthen skin, practitioners generally recommend a course of six to eight Hydrafacial treatments for the most effective skin health results. These could be every two weeks, with maintenance skin health treatments monthly. Your practitioner should create a personalised plan for you. 

On top of in-clinic Hydrafacial treatment, daily cleansing and moisturising are advised, along with weekly exfoliations at home if you want to see a real difference. 

Of course, using sunscreen, drinking lots of water, eating a healthy diet and refraining from smoking are always recommended for healthy, radiant skin.

How Much Will a Hydrafacial Cost?

Usually £95-£220, depending on your location and the experience of your practitioner. Courses of Hydrafacial will generally work out cheaper, speak to your practitioner who will be able to come up with a skin health treatment plan for you.

There are often deals on HydraFacials available, so do ask around before booking.
