1. Customizable for every skin type

The highlight of HydraFacial is its adaptability to various skin types. This means that irrespective of the skin type, you can be assured that the treatment can be personalized to your specific skin needs and concerns.

3. Instant results and no downtime

There are specific skincare treatments dubbed “Lunch Break Treatments,” which take less time and can be performed over the lunch break.

HydraFacial is one such treatment where you can get it done, get a rundown of the post-treatment care, and walk out of the clinic without any issues. When it comes to the results, you will likely witness immediate results with skin rejuvenation, improvements in skin texture, and also reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Once you step out of the clinic, you can return to your work or daily routine without worrying about any limitations. The only thing we’d recommend is that you follow the post-treatment instructions suggested by the aesthetician.

4. Hydration boost

If you are tired of the dryness and dullness visible on your skin and want a quick pick me up, HydraFacial effectively takes care of the same. The treatment is focused on restoring the skin’s hydration and moisture level to ensure that the skin looks plump and more rejuvenated.

5. Addresses multiple skin concerns

Not just one thing, HydraFacial targets a variety of skin concerns, including acne, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, etc. So, undergoing this treatment ensures to tackle multiple concerns without complaints or hassle.

The combination of cleansing, exfoliation, and extraction purifies and clears up the skin, taking away the triggers that lead to skin complications in the first place. Think of this as an all-in-one treatment for your skin.

What are the Cons of HydraFacial Treatment?

Every coin has two sides to it. While the pros and benefits are worth prioritizing, you also can’t miss out on discussing the downsides or cons of the treatment.

Albeit less and often temporary and manageable, being aware of these cons is vital for individuals to make informed decisions on whether or not to undergo the treatment in the first place.

1. Cost considerations

The cost disparity is quite significant when you compare the cost of HydraFacial with the standard or traditional skincare facials.

HydraFacial, on average, costs between Rs. 1500 and Rs. 3000 (or more) per session, depending on the clinic’s location, the aesthetician’s experience, and the kind of products and technologies being used.

While the results are often praised, the financial aspect may be a limiting factor for some individuals, especially considering that multiple sessions are often recommended for optimal results.

2. Temporary results

The results of HydraFacial typically last between 3-4 weeks; eventually, you will need another session in the subsequent month to see continued improvement. So, if you want to maintain the results, you will have to undergo regular sessions at least once a month, which can add up to concerns related to time and cost.

If you are looking for something more substantial or long-lasting, we recommend that you consult our specialists at AAYNA Clinic to aim for something more permanent in terms of results.

3. Not suitable for severe skin concerns

HydraFacial is known for its customizable nature and adaptability, but even then, it comes with certain restrictions. One issue is that it doesn’t always work for individuals with severe skin conditions or extensive damage.

This explains why we emphasize to our clients to first schedule a consultation with our specialists to estimate whether or not HydraFacial would be an ideal treatment for them. If you have active infections, scarring, open wounds, etc., HydraFacial might not be for you.


In the quest for flawless and radiant skin, individuals are constantly exploring new skincare treatments, and HydraFacial has emerged as a popular choice for many. However, being aware of the pros and cons of HydraFacials enables you to determine whether or not it is ideal for your specific skincare needs and concerns.

Before you decide to undergo HydraFacial, we recommend you prioritize a consultation with one of our specialists at AAYNA Clinic to thoroughly understand your skin concerns and establish realistic expectations from the treatment.
