It's not a good option for those who are at higher risk of infection or have a low tolerance for pain or needles. While both procedures are aimed at exfoliating the skin, Hydrafacials allow more room for customization. The hydration applied during Hydrafacials penetrates deeper than manual application performed during microdermabrasion. In addition, those seeking relief from blackheads find that the vacuum component of hydrafacial is more thorough in removing impurities.
The DG also achieves different objectives than HydraFacial. For example, it is designed to cleanse, exfoliate, extract and moisturize, while eliminating toxins and stimulating blood flow. HydraFacial, on the other hand, is a relaxing treatment intended more for cosmetic than clinical purposes. This means that the DG provides more corrective care to treat active acne, rough areas, dull complexion, dryness and fine lines.
