HydraFacial Aftercare – A Guide to Persevering Results



Signs of aging, acne scars, and other skin issues can leave your complexion looking dull and uneven. HydraFacial™ offers a rejuvenating solution through a combination of facial cleansing, exfoliation, and hydrating serums that deliver radiant, refreshed skin.

To maintain these results and keep your skin glowing, it is important to follow an effective aftercare routine. Here’s what you should know to preserve your post-HydraFacial™ glow.

What is HydraFacial™?

HydraFacial™ is a non-invasive skincare treatment that uses patented technology to cleanse, exfoliate, and hydrate the skin in one session.


The process employs a unique, multi-step approach, starting with gentle exfoliation and extraction, followed by an infusion of nourishing serums to address specific skin concerns like:

  • Fine lines
  • Uneven tone
  • Acne scars

It is a form of hydradermabrasion that results in a radiant complexion without the downtime of more intensive treatments.

Effective Aftercare Tips to Preserve Results

To keep your skin looking refreshed and radiant after a HydraFacial™, follow these essential aftercare tips to maintain the benefits and maximize the longevity of your results:

Avoid Heavy Makeup for 24 Hours

Allow your freshly treated skin to breathe and absorb the serums fully by avoiding heavy or full-coverage makeup for at least 24 hours after the treatment. This prevents clogging pores and ensures your skin remains refreshed.

Stay Out of Direct Sunlight

Your skin may be more sensitive to UV exposure after a HydraFacial™. To prevent sunburn or pigmentation, avoid direct sunlight and wear broad-spectrum sunscreen daily. Consider a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses for extra protection.

Refrain from Exfoliating Products

The HydraFacial™ includes gentle skin exfoliation to remove dead skin cells, so there’s no need to add further scrubs or exfoliants to your routine for at least 48 hours. Doing so can cause irritation or sensitivity.

Stay Hydrated

Drinking plenty of water aids the body’s natural detoxification process and promotes healthy skin. Proper skin hydration guarantees your skin remains plump and can amplify the hydrating effects of the HydraFacial™ serums.

Use Gentle Skincare Products

Switch to mild, fragrance-free cleansers and moisturizers for the days following the treatment. Avoid harsh chemicals or alcohol-based products that can dry out your skin. Our provider may recommend specific products to complement your HydraFacial™ results.
