Skincare Specialists Fredericton

We all have heard of Microdermabrasion , It is available as a skin treatment from many years. This skincare treatment involves deep exfoliation for improving skin tone and texture. Now we can see another trending skin treatment that is Hydrafacial. It is a more progressive form of skin treatment that can deal various types of skin conditions. Hydrafacial is a new type of procedure that offers deep pore cleansing, exfoliation of dead skin, extraction and skin hydration all at the same time. Unlike microdermabrasion, hydrafacial is suitable for all skin types, including very delicate ones, and does not cause any side effect. Here we are going to compare these both treatments so that you can choose the best one according to your needs.


The HydraFacial is a unique non-invasive and advance type of skin treatment with multiple steps all combined for a refreshing and relaxing treatment. It is not wrong if we say, the ‘microdermabrasion’ aspect of the Hydrafacial skin treatment is only step one of the treatment. The Hydrafacial exfoliates like a microdermabrasion treatment but it also cleanses, extracts impurities, hydrates and infuses antioxidants, hyaluronic acid and peptides.

It can cure several skin issues at once such as congestion, enlarged pores, acne, blackheads, sun spot and sun damage, rough skin texture and tone and give the skin a new glow. The further advantage is that it can be customized according to particular skin issues and results continue to advance with regular sessions of the treatment. It is truly a best innovation in skincare treatments. You can choose any one from several hydrafacial treatments available in reputable Med Spa according to your skin and requirement.

Microdermabrasion is a process mainly performed with a microdermabrasion device. It is a useful treatment for clients with acne problem because the treatment helps keep outbreaks to a minimum.
