How often should you get an Aquafacial?

By Leila Cunningham, Head of Skin Care Products at CLN Company

Aquafacial has become a popular choice lately for many skincare enthusiasts, offering the promise of a refreshed, radiant complexion with minimal downtime, with the added convenience of at-home use. But while the initial glow is undeniably appealing, to truly see the best results of this device and its treatment many are left wondering about a clear and obvious question: how often should you be using it? 

This article delves into the factors influencing treatment frequency, empowering you to craft a personalized skin care routine that incorporates regular Aquafacial treatments. By understanding your skin's specific needs and tailoring the frequency accordingly, you can ensure you're reaping the long-term benefits of this innovative treatment and maintaining that coveted post-Aquafacial glow throughout the year.

Results Right Away

The magic of Aquafacial can be seen immediately. You'll likely notice a visible transformation – your skin appears brighter, smoother, and more radiant. Fine lines, wrinkles, and blemishes might seem diminished, thanks to the exfoliation and hydration you just received. This instant "glow up" is a result of shedding dead skin cells, unclogging pores, and stimulating cell renewal.

Hold onto that post-treatment confidence! These immediate effects typically linger for several days. During this time, your skin continues to reap the benefits of the infused serums, maintaining its newfound hydration and luminosity.

Maintaining the Glow

The immediate effects mentioned above typically linger for several days. During this time, your skin continues to reap the benefits of the treatment, staying quenched and radiant.

However, it’s important to pay attention to additional factors that will help you keep your pique glow. 

The key to locking in your Aquafacial glow lies in extending its magic beyond treatment. Here are some essential steps to maximize the longevity of your results:

  • Consistency:  Regular use of Aquafacial can be like booster shots for your skin. Aim for sessions every 2-3 days (depending on your skin type) to maintain a healthy, radiant complexion. Oily or acne-prone skin might benefit from this more frequent approach to manage excess oil and breakouts, while drier skin types might find 4-5 day intervals sufficient.

  • Hydration: Think of your skin as a beautiful plant; it thrives with proper hydration. Drink plenty of water throughout the day (aim for 8 glasses) and incorporate hydrating serums and moisturizers into your skin care routine. Look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and ceramides, which help attract and retain moisture.

  • Daily Protection: Sun damage is a major culprit behind premature aging and a dull complexion. Make sunscreen with SPF 30+ or higher your daily non-negotiable. It helps protect your skin from harmful UV rays and keeps your post-aquafacial glow lasting longer. Reapply sunscreen every two hours, especially when spending time outdoors.

  • Healthy Habits: Beautiful skin starts from within. Prioritize a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains to nourish your skin from the inside out. Aim for adequate sleep (7-8 hours per night) to allow your skin to repair and regenerate. Additionally, manage stress through exercise or relaxation techniques. Stress can exacerbate skin concerns like acne and inflammation, so prioritizing your well-being is crucial.

Other Factors

Several additional factors influence how often you should use Aquafacial:

  • Skin Type: Oily or acne-prone skin might benefit from more frequent treatments to manage excess oil and breakouts, while drier skin may require less frequent usage. Start with two uses a week and then increase to three if you think it’s needed.

  • Skin Concerns:  Are you targeting hyperpigmentation, fine lines, or acne? Consider incorporating an extra Aquafacial treatment to address changing needs.

  • Seasonal Shifts: Our skin's needs can change with the seasons. Summer sun can lead to increased oil production, while winter winds can cause dryness. Consider adjusting Aquafacial use during these transitional periods.

  • Special Occasions:  Do you have a wedding, reunion, or big presentation coming up? A pre-event Aquafacial can be a great way to achieve a radiant, camera-ready complexion. 

The ideal Aquafacial frequency is a unique code for your skin. Listen to its needs, consult your esthetician and/or dermatologist if you have skin concerns/conditions, and craft a personalized schedule that delivers your desired level of radiance and keeps your complexion glowing throughout the year. Remember, consistency is key, and with the right approach, Aquafacials can become a valuable tool in your quest for healthy, beautiful skin.
