So you're considering a hydrafacial or perhaps you've already had one. Either way, you're on the brink of experiencing skin that feels luxuriously refreshed. But you may still wonder how to treat your skin immediately post-treatment. At LaserLux Aesthetics, we enjoy helping our clients look and feel their best with our premium skin care treatment services. We want the same amazing results for you as well. Read below to learn about the essential steps for post-hydrafacial care so you can keep your skin glowing for as long as possible.


Setting the Stage for Success

On the first day, your skin is now in a rejuvenated, yet delicate state. It’s just experienced a delightful concoction of cleansing, exfoliating, and hydrating ingredients. Here is what you need to do on day 1 to pamper your skin and prolong that post-facial glow:

  • Keep it cool: Avoid heat and sweating. Skip the gym and say no to spicy foods, at least for a day.
  • Sun Protection: Your skin is more susceptible to sunburn now. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen and wear a hat if you plan to step out.
  • Gentle Skin Care Routine: Stick to a gentle cleanser and a hydrating moisturizer. Avoid using any products with harsh ingredients, such as retinol or alpha hydroxy acids.

Enhancing the Glow

On days 2 and 3, it’s time to nurture your skin and encourage it to retain that healthy glow. Follow these tips to keep the magic of hydrafacial alive:

  • Hydrate: Increase your water intake. Hydrated skin is happy skin!
  • No Touching: Avoid picking or touching your face. Your skin is still in the recovery phase and touching can introduce bacteria and impurities.
  • Nutrient-Rich Diet: Indulge in a balanced diet rich in vitamins and minerals. Incorporate fruits, vegetables, and lean proteins to aid your skin's natural healing process.

Staying Radiant

By days 4 through 7, the initial period of hypersensitivity has passed. Now, it’s all about fostering that glow and letting your rejuvenated skin shine through. Here’s how to take care of your skin:

  • Exfoliation: Around day 4, you can reintroduce gentle exfoliation into your routine. Use a mild scrub or an exfoliating cleanser to remove dead skin cells.
  • Maintain a Skincare Regimen: Establish a consistent skincare regimen, tailored to your skin type, to enhance and prolong the effects of the hydrafacial.
  • Moisturize: Continue to moisturize your skin daily, prioritizing products that hydrate and nourish the skin.

Maintain a Long-Term Glow with a Professional Skin Care Treatment Plan

Your hydrafacial benefits don't have to end when you leave the aesthetician’s chair. Following a dedicated post-hydrafacial care regime is key to nurturing and prolonging that fresh-faced glow.
