Welcome to The Healing Sanctuary Idaho Falls MedSpa, where we offer a wide range of services to help you look and feel your best. Our mission is to provide our clients with the highest quality treatments and the most advanced technology. One of our most popular treatments is the HydraFacial.

What is a HydraFacial?

A HydraFacial is a non-invasive, multi-step treatment that cleanses, exfoliates, extracts, and hydrates your skin. The treatment starts with a gentle cleansing to remove any dirt or oil from your skin, followed by a gentle exfoliation to remove any dead skin cells. Then, the aesthetician uses a special tool to extract any impurities from your pores, such as blackheads and whiteheads.

The next step is the infusion of a special serum that hydrates and nourishes your skin. The serum is customized to meet your individual skin needs and may contain antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid, among other ingredients.

The final step is an LED light therapy treatment, which is used to reduce any inflammation or redness and to stimulate collagen production. The entire treatment typically takes about 30 minutes to an hour, depending on your individual needs and goals.

HydraFacial vs Regular Facial

While regular facials offer some benefits, they can be limited in their ability to deeply cleanse and hydrate your skin. The HydraFacial, on the other hand, uses advanced technology to penetrate deeper into your skin, providing a more thorough cleansing and hydrating experience.

In addition, the HydraFacial is customizable, meaning that the aesthetician can adjust the treatment to meet your individual skin needs and concerns. For example, if you have sensitive skin, the aesthetician can use a more mild exfoliant or serum to avoid irritation.

Another advantage of the HydraFacial is that it is suitable for all skin types, including oily, dry, and combination skin. Whether you have acne-prone skin, aging skin, or just want to maintain a healthy glow, the HydraFacial can provide the deep cleansing, hydration, and nourishment your skin needs to look and feel its best.

Who Will Administer the Facial?

At our Idaho Falls MedSpa, we have licensed and experienced aestheticians who will perform your HydraFacial. They have been trained to use the HydraFacial technology and will customize the treatment to meet your unique skin needs and goals.

Our aestheticians are also knowledgeable about skincare and can provide advice on how to maintain the results of your HydraFacial at home. They may recommend specific skincare products or a skincare routine tailored to your skin type and concerns.

Skin Benefits of HydraFacials

HydraFacials offer a range of benefits for your skin, including:

  1. Deep Cleansing: The HydraFacial removes dirt, oil, and dead skin cells from your skin, leaving it fresh and clean.
  2. Hydration: The HydraFacial infuses your skin with hydrating serums, leaving it moisturized and glowing.
  3. Improved Texture: The HydraFacial smooths and refines your skin’s texture, making it look and feel smoother and more even.
  4. Reduced Fine Lines and Wrinkles: The HydraFacial can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving your skin looking younger and more vibrant.
  5. Reduced Hyperpigmentation: The HydraFacial can help reduce the appearance of dark spots and other forms of hyperpigmentation, leaving your skin looking clearer and more even-toned.
  6. Reduced Acne: The HydraFacial can help reduce the appearance of acne by removing impurities from your pores and infusing your skin with acne-fighting ingredients.
  7. Improved Skin Elasticity: The HydraFacial can help improve your skin’s elasticity by stimulating collagen production, which can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  8. Improve circulation: The massage step of a facial helps to stimulate blood flow in your skin. Improved circulation can help to bring oxygen and nutrients to your skin, which can improve its overall health.
  9. Boost collagen production: Collagen is a protein that gives your skin its structure and elasticity. As we age, our collagen production naturally decreases, which can lead to sagging skin and wrinkles. However, some facial treatments, such as microneedling or laser therapy, can help to boost collagen production and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  10. Clear out pores: The extraction step can help to clear out your pores and prevent future breakouts. Additionally, by keeping your pores clear, you allow your other skincare products to penetrate more deeply, which can improve their effectiveness.
  11. Hydrate and nourish your skin: By applying hydrating masks, serums, and moisturizers, facials can help to hydrate and nourish your skin, improving its texture and tone.

Overall, the science behind HydraFacials is complex, but the benefits are clear. From improving circulation to clearing out pores and boosting collagen production, HydraFacials can provide a variety of benefits for your skin. 

In addition to the immediate benefits, HydraFacials can also provide long-term benefits for your skin. By regularly removing impurities and infusing your skin with nourishing serums, HydraFacials can help improve the overall health and appearance of your skin.

How Long Do The Results Last?

The results of a HydraFacial typically last for several weeks, but this can vary depending on your individual skin type and the condition of your skin. To maintain the results of your HydraFacial, it is important to follow a regular skincare routine that includes cleansing, moisturizing, and sun protection. Your aesthetician can provide advice on the best products to use and how to care for your skin between HydraFacial treatments.

The frequency of HydraFacials will depend on your individual skin needs and goals. For most people, it is recommended to get a HydraFacial once a month to maintain healthy, glowing skin. However, if you have more specific skin concerns, such as acne or hyperpigmentation, your esthetician may recommend more frequent treatments.

At our Idaho Falls MedSpa, we offer a variety of HydraFacial treatments, including the Signature HydraFacial, which is our most popular treatment. We also offer the Deluxe HydraFacial, which includes additional steps such as lymphatic drainage and LED light therapy, and the Platinum HydraFacial, which includes all of the Deluxe steps as well as a booster of your choice to address specific skin concerns.

Our licensed aestheticians are trained to provide customized treatments that meet your unique skin needs and goals. We look forward to helping you achieve healthy, glowing skin!
