Let me start by getting real here… I am NOT a skincare expert. I coasted along through my teens and twenties using minimal products, and most were from a drugstore. Now that I’m well into my thirties, skincare is becoming a focus. I’m learning a lot and trying to incorporate new products and treatments into my regimen. When New England Skin Center reached out to ask if I wanted to try their HydraFacial, I said “yes, please!” and then immediately googled what that was. 😂
Turns out a HydraFacial is a quick 30 minute procedure. It removes dead skin cells and extracts impurities while simultaneously bathing the new skin with cleansing, hydrating, and moisturizing targeted serums. It works for all skin tones and basically leaves you with glowing, dewy skin. There is almost no downtime after; I had a little redness for maybe an hour, but not bad enough to worry about being in public. They did warn me about being a little extra sensitive in the sun, but I am all about wearing hats in the sun anyway, so I was able to enjoy my Memorial Day weekend outside without any issues!
The facial itself is pretty straightforward. the feeling of the wand on my face actually reminded me of wet baby kisses – the kind where they get their whole slobbery mouth on you and create some suction! Lol. Okay, maybe the facial is a little more intense but not uncomfortable. And can we talk about this fun treatment room below?? Hello gorgeous!
Afterwards my skin DID look better. It was definitely glowing and looked very smooth and even. It was more hydrated than usual and felt so soft to the touch! To note, I have pretty sensitive skin and other than the redness I mentioned above, I had no side effects. One tiny area on my cheek stayed red for a day, but it was the kind of thing I saw in the mirror and a friend was like “I see nothing and have no idea what you’re talking about” so I was just looking a little more closely than others. The below photo was taken about an hour after treatment so you can see what I mean – nice and normal!
I am super happy with the results and plan to continue these going forward! I’m all about finding ways to keep my skin looking young that don’t require knives or needles! (yet… 😂)
