How to get glass skin with a HydraFacial

A glass skin routine can help you achieve lit-from-within skin that will leave you looking and feeling clean and radiant. However, nothing beats the freshly finished feeling of a HydraFacial and it’s shimmery, shiny skin surfacing.

What is the glass skin trend?

Glass skin took over high fashion runways and then subsequently social media as the latest trend and, as far as trends go, this was one of the good ones. Glass skin and ‘clean girl aesthetic’ essentially saw us prioritising minimalist makeup, hydration-boosting skincare, and light-reflecting complexions that shone like glass. A full skincare routine for glass skin could be achieved with professional products like Obagi skincare, but as we know this will take some time.

How does HydraFacial work?

The HydraFacial combines a patented vortex technology with flushing, cleansing, and exfoliating properties that clean the epidermis. Pores, spots, and hair follicles have oils and debris extracted from them using the sucking vortex technique, and the newly opened skin columns are flushed with beneficial cleansing agents and moisturisers.

The vortex technique and handheld pen also help to remove dead and damaged skin cells on the skin surface, revealing a fresher complexion.

How the HydraFacial gives you glass skin

Your skin after a HydraFacial will be glowing and glassy, and here’s why. The ultra deep cleansing, extraction, and exfoliating of your skin helps to improve its overall health and appearance, but the channels opened within the skin are also incredibly porous.

This means that the cleansing and moisturising agents used are able to penetrate deeper than a regular surface cleanse like just washing your face.

These skin boosting agents are delivered deep into the skin to help maintain longer term complexion changes and oil purges. The serums used are rich, fresh moisturisers that leave your skin visibly brighter – like glass skin – immediately after treatment.

HydraFacial results

As always, a course of treatments is recommended for the HydraFacial to make truly impactful changes.

However, after just one treatment you will instantly see an improvement in your skin immediately after your appointment. If you are someone who likes their skin to look bright and dewy, then you will love this treatment.

Your skin may be a little pink after treatment, which is completely normal. This is because we have cleansed and exfoliated the skin and applied active serums, which naturally stimulate blood flow and skin remodeling.

This should calm down within as little as a few hours post-treatment, though more sensitive skin types may feel flushed for up to 24 hours.

The science behind getting glassy skin

Glass skin is essentially healthy, shiny, moisturised skin that looks lit from within. In order to achieve this, exfoliation is needed on the surface to remove dull, dying skin cells that are blocking your complexion. Then, moisturiser is needed to brighten this newer skin and keep it flushed full of life.

Where the HydraFacial aids with this, besides the treatment process outlined previously, is with it’s application and extraction method (the aforementioned patented vortex). This extensive treatment stimulates blood flow to the skin through its massaging of the area, increasing its flushing, and opens microchannels in the skin.

These microchannels not only help products absorb better, as we’ve said, but they also help to stimulate the production of fresh collagen in the skin.

Collagen is an essential skin protein we have in our bodies that we lose gradually over time; it contributes to skin laxity, bounce, and overall ‘full’ appearance. When we lose collagen, we lose skin elasticity and thickness which can contribute to wrinkles or tired-looking skin.

The science and deep skin remodeling factors of a course of HydraFacial treatments for glassy skin not only help you achieve healthier skin on the day of your appointment, but can help maintain it for weeks and months to come.

The HydraFacial can be tailored to your skin concerns, too. If you are worried about blemishes for example, we adapt the serums and agents used to suit you. This process is also adapted differently for fine lines, volume loss, tired-looking skin, and hyperpigmentation, so it can be truly unique to your skin challenges and type.
