Why Men are Surprisingly Into the HydraFacial

The Many Benefits of Receiving a HydraFacial for Men

Many people may falsely believe that facials and skincare products are designed specifically for women. However, your skin is the largest organ in your body and maintaining its health is important for all genders and ages. 

Why is Skin Care Important for Men? 

Hydration is the most important factor for maintaining younger, more attractive looking skin. With aging comes slowed cell renewal and testosterone production that can cause the skin to become dry, flaky, and itchy, further exacerbating the formation of lines and wrinkles. Looking years older than your actual age can negatively affect your career and personal life. Additionally, shaving the face can further strip the skin of natural oils, leading to redness and irritation. According to dermatologists and skin health experts, keeping the skin hydrated is key to combating these negative effects of aging

In addition, too much testosterone, sweating, and stress can cause increased oil production leading to enlarged pores, breakouts, and blackheads. Clearing these blemishes can improve one’s appearance and help boost confidence. Contrary to popular belief, moisturizing can help prevent this excess skin oiliness that leads to congested pores. When the skin becomes dehydrated, the oil glands go into overdrive trying to compensate for the lack of moisture. Once hydration is restored, sebum (or oil) production slows down over time revealing clearer skin. 

In order to combat these men’s skincare issues, give your skin the moisture it so desperately needs with a treatment meant to hydrate deep into the skin. The HydraFacial was created to deliver the skin-nourishing benefits of hydration straight into the skin’s pores to provide a gentle treatment that works for all of your men’s skincare needs. Continue reading to learn why the HydraFacial is growing in popularity among men.

What is a HydraFacial?

The HydraFacial is an effective skin treatment that immediately delivers long-term hydration and pore clarifying without causing irritation. In one session, the treatment is able to remove dead skin cells and extract impurities, while also cleansing and moisturizing the skin.

How Treatment Works 

The HydraFacial treatment uses a specially designed and patented Vortex-Fusion technology to painlessly exfoliate, extract, and hydrate the skin. The spiral shape of the Tip of the HydroPeels tool creates a “vortex effect” to powerfully remove bacteria, excess oil, and sweat while simultaneously moisturizing the skin with serums. If you’re tired of your partner digging out your blackheads and impurities with their sharp nails, the HydraFacial is a more hygenic and painless alternative. 

What Skin Concerns Does the HydraFacial Treat?

The HydraFacial was created to meet all of your skincare needs as a man. It can treat a variety of common skin conditions and concerns that men experience including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Oily and congested skin 
  • Textured skin 
  • Enlarged pores
  • Dull skin tone
  • Loose and sagging skin

Benefits of the HydraFacial for Men

The HydraFacial treatment for men provides many benefits to restore hydration, improve texture, and cleanse pores. A deep exfoliation and extraction makes the HydraFacial effective for treating acne and eliminating blackheads. The moisturizers, peptides, and antioxidants it delivers to the top layers of the skin help to restore a bright, fresh appearance. After treatment, you will notice a more even skin tone and visible anti-aging results, giving you a youthful and energized appearance. 

3 Ways to Customize Your HydraFacial Treatment

In addition to the HydraFacial treatment, your skincare specialist can add enhancements to treat any specific skin concerns that may need extra attention. For example, men tend to have more pigmentation spots, larger pores, and oilier skin than women due to excess sweating, testosterone, and time spent in the sun. To personalize your HydraFacial, we recommend adding boosters, lymphatic therapy, and/or LED light therapy based on your individual concerns.

1. HydraFacial Boosters 

In case your skin needs even more attention, you can add a booster to your HydraFacial. Each booster is made with targeted ingredients that enhance the treatment and provide extra nourishment. HydraFacial has even collaborated with notable skincare brand, ZO Skin Health, to create two boosters that can be added to your HydraFacial service for best results. 

ZO Brightalive Booster

Are you bothered by brown spots or uneven skin tone caused by all of the time you spend outdoors exposed to UV rays? The ZO Brightalive Booster can treat these issues by preventing new pigmentation formation and restoring moisture content. Using a unique blend of skin brighteners, the Brightalive Booster is able to block the production of pigmentation. Meanwhile, glycerin, a popular hydrating agent, restores moisture to the skin.  

ZO Rozatrol Booster

ZO Rozatrol Booster is specially formulated for men who exhibit signs of red, irritation-prone skin due to shaving or skin conditions. As well as detoxification, it can replenish hydration to promote healthy skin barrier function, therefore, protecting the skin from irritation. The formula contains key ingredients such as lactose to minimize inflammation, as well as rosa canina extract to control sebum production and minimize pore size.  

If you are unsure which booster is right for your skin type, take the HydraFacial Skin Health Assessment for recommendations based on your skin needs and goals. 

2. Lymphatic Therapy 

The lymphatic system plays a vital role in skin health since it is in charge of removing waste and toxins, such as sodium and alcohol, from the body. From time to time it can become obstructed, causing fluid to build up in the system. Lymphatic drainage can help to expel this build up by facilitating the movement of lymph fluids, thus pushing out the toxins via the lymph nodes. The process improves skin quality by boosting circulation and reducing inflammation. Add Lymphatic Therapy to your HydraFacial treatment to brighten and smooth your complexion. 

3. LED Light Therapy

LED light therapy is an excellent way to complete your HydraFacial. The blue light of LEDs is able to target and disrupt the infectious and inflammatory p. acnes bacteria, thereby improving the appearance of oily and congested skin. If you’re looking to boost collagen production and soothe red or irritated skin, then red LED light will work great for you. Your skincare specialist will be able to determine which form of light therapy is best for you.

Perk Treatments by HydraFacial

HydraFacial offers Perk treatments that can be performed in addition to your HydraFacial or as a standalone treatment. Currently, HydraFacial provides Perk brand eye and lip treatments for specific issues. 

Eye Perk Treatment

Formulated to treat eye concerns, the Perk eye therapy is a must-have for men struggling with discolored, tired-looking under eyes. A number of key ingredients support collagen health, which firms the skin and reduces under eye bags. The two ingredients include AldavineTM 5X and Phytomoist to minimize puffiness and dark circles as well as maintain moisture over time.

Lip Perk Treatment

Many men commonly forget the importance of keeping their lips hydrated. Trust us, no woman wants to kiss dry, flaky lips. Even more, dry lips can lead to dreadful cold sores and blisters. Fortunately, the Perk lip treatment gently exfoliates and hydrates the lip area to reveal smooth lips. Vitamins A, C, and E as well as aloe barbadensis leaf extract provide hydration benefits and antioxidant properties to reduce flaking and restore smoothness.
