The health of our skin reflects the quality of our overall health. Dry weather, sun exposure and many other situations all contribute to skin ageing and malaise. To treat these skin damages, we are fortunate to have two methods of microneedling and HydraFacial at hand to rejuvenate and heal our skin. These two methods do not require surgery or recovery time, but they make a big difference in the skin’s vitality and appearance.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a modern treatment used to eliminate many skin lesions. This method is considered one of the non-invasive treatment methods used in different ways for many years with the same purpose of rejuvenating facial skin. In microneedling treatment, a derma roller is used to clean the surface of the skin. It is a roller made of fine titanium metal needles two and a half millimeters in diameter to penetrate the skin. In the middle layer of the skin or “dermis,” a small wound and a small amount of bleeding occur in the skin, to which the body reacts and begins to repair and regenerate the area.

What is HydraFacial, and how it works?

HydraFacial is a multi-step procedure performed by a Hydroderma device. It includes a set of hydraulic probes to perform various functions, helps rejuvenate the skin, and exfoliates it. In HydraFacial treatment, water droplets are spread on the skin using an ultrasound device. This procedure removes the top layer of the skin. This non-invasive operation uses hydraulic technology to exfoliate, polish, detoxify, hydrate and fill the skin. This method also increases the production of collagen, which has an anti-ageing effect on the skin.

Which treatment should I chose, HydraFacial or Microneedling?

It all depends on your skin. Some skin conditions such as acne and pimples may not be treated with microneedling. However, microneedling is still a safe and painless treatment to have smooth and fresh skin. HydraFacial is usually used for sensitive skin; if you have dry skin, HydraFacial may be right for you and make your skin soft and healthy.
