Can You Have a HydraFacial with Acne?



Yes, you can have a HydraFacial even if you have acne. In fact, HydraFacials can be beneficial for acne-prone skin. The treatment involves a series of steps that include cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, and hydration, which can help reduce acne by removing impurities and excess oil, unclogging pores, and providing hydration to the skin.

However, there are a few considerations before you consider hydrafacial:

1. Severity of Acne: If you have severe or cystic acne, you should consult with a specialist before undergoing a HydraFacial, it is important to undergo treatment to address the cystic acne before considering a HydraFacial.

2. Active Breakouts: While HydraFacials can help with mild to moderate acne, active and inflamed breakouts might require special care to avoid irritation. If you have active acne, it should be addressed first with treatments such as a chemical peel and the use of appropriate home care products to reduce breakouts. A chemical peel can help exfoliate the skin and unclog pores, while targeted home care products can help manage and reduce active acne. Once the active acne is under control, a HydraFacial can be an ideal treatment to further improve your skin’s health and appearance.

3. Customization: HydraFacials can be customized with different serums and boosters to target specific skin concerns, including acne. Your esthetician can tailor the treatment to suit your skin’s needs.

4. Aftercare: Proper aftercare is crucial to maintain the benefits of the HydraFacial and to prevent further breakouts. Follow the skincare regimen recommended by your esthetician

Overall, HydraFacials can be a helpful part of an acne management plan, but it’s important to get personalized advice from a skincare professional.
