4 Myths About the HydraFacial That Need to Go Away

These are the facts about this service you should know.

HydraFacial treatments are a very important step in helping patients achieve a greater appearance of their skin. It could be considered a combination of spa treatment and surgery techniques. For Yielding Eye and Face Laser and Plastic Surgery, it’s one of their most popular skincare procedures. This is because of how safe and effective it is for YMD’s patients.

As procedures like this grow in popularity, there are occasionally unknowns, speculation, and mistruths shared. Here are four of those you may have heard that should be cleared up so you can move forward with clearing up your skin.

Myth #1 – It’s a Complicated Surgery and Process

Because these treatments are normally performed at the offices of surgeons, it’s believed that it actually is a surgical procedure similar to a facelift or blepharoplasty, which is a surgery for your eyelids. It actually isn’t a surgical procedure at all. The HydraFacial is a treatment that is tailored and performed to meet your specific skincare needs. You don’t even need to be put to sleep.

Myth #2 – You Will Have to Take Time Off of Work

Since the first myth has been spread, this one is associated with it as well. There is a misconception that you have to take time off from your career or hobbies to recover. There is no downtime required because there is no recovery involved. You can resume your normal day once your treatment is finished. As a matter of fact, there are some patients who receive multiple services in the same appointment as their HydraFacial treatment such as dermaplaning and Botox.

Myth #3 – You Can Do the Same Thing at Home

Yes, there are skincare strategies you can follow at home and do on your own, but HydraFacial treatments are performed by professionals that are uniquely qualified to determine what is best for you and your skin on an individual basis. This is why they are so much more effective than traditional skincare practices. If your skincare is a priority, you should lean on the experience and guidance of someone like Dr. Yeilding who can make the best recommendations and perform the treatments necessary for you.

Myth #4 – You Have to Be a Good Candidate
