Will I Experience Redness After HydraFacial® Treatment?

Featured Image

Because many skin treatments, like the HydraFacial, can be performed in less than an hour and do not require anesthesia or numbing, patients may schedule their appointment over lunchtime or during a short break from work. Because of this, we are often asked how the skin will look after a HydraFacial and whether it is reasonable to return straight to work, reapply makeup, and resume other daily routines. Here, you’ll find the answer to this and many other questions about the HydraFacial treatment from the knowledgeable team at Brickell Cosmetic Center in Miami, FL.


What does a HydraFacial do for your skin?

The HydraFacial is one of the most popular skin treatments available today, in part due to its versatility in addressing a wide range of concerns across virtually every skin type. Men and women often turn to HydraFacial treatment to improve the overall health and vibrancy of their complexions while targeting more specific issues as well, such as:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Dark spots
  • Sun damage
  • Large pores
  • Clogged pores
  • Frequent acne
  • Rough skin
  • Dry skin or oily skin
  • Blotchy or patchy skin
  • Dull complexion


The HydraFacial treatment process

Each HydraFacial is customized to help meet the patient’s specific needs and skin type, with the majority of treatments being divided into six steps:

  • Cleansing
  • Exfoliation
  • Extraction
  • Moisturization
  • Nourishment
  • Protection


Based on your concerns, goals, skin type, and other factors, our skin care experts will curate a custom-tailored HydraFacial plan to include the most appropriate products and serums for you.


What to expect after a HydraFacial

Unlike a chemical peel and other more invasive treatments, the HydraFacial is gentle enough to allow patients to go back to work and other activities very quickly without significant side effects. Almost immediately after a HydraFacial, it is normal to experience some redness and inflammation, but these symptoms are typically very mild and resolve within 24 – 72 hours, if not sooner. Redness is arguably the most common and noticeable side effect of a HydraFacial, leaving many patients asking if they can reapply makeup right after their treatment. In most cases, it is perfectly safe and appropriate to wear makeup after your HydraFacial, but our team will discuss the details of your specific HydraFacial aftercare routine with you to ensure your comfort and the success of your treatment.


Will I notice results immediately after a HydraFacial treatment?

Once any mild redness or irritation after a HydraFacial has resolved, patients often report their complexion looking healthier, brighter, and clearer overall. The full effects of a HydraFacial can take several weeks to become apparent, though, as the skin responds to treatment and the body begins to produce new, healthy collagen fibers. For the most consistent and desirable results possible, many patients choose to reschedule regular HydraFacials in Miami, FL about once per month.
