Welcome to the HydraFacial Training Manual! 🤗
HydraFacial is a revolutionary facial treatment that uses a patented hydradermabrasion and vortex-extraction technology to deeply cleanse, exfoliate, extract, and hydrate the skin. 🧖♀️
This training manual will provide you with the information you need to understand and safely perform HydraFacial treatments. 🤓
Before beginning the HydraFacial procedure, it is important to consult with the client about their skin concerns and the desired outcome of the treatment. 🤝 During the consultation, it is also important to assess the client’s skin type, as this will determine the appropriate products and treatments that should be used. 🧐
The HydraFacial procedure is composed of several steps. 🤔 First, the skin is cleansed and prepped with a special solution. This helps to soften the skin and open the pores for better absorption of the treatment. 🛁
Next, the HydraFacial device is used to perform automated hydradermabrasion, which deeply exfoliates the skin and removes any impurities. 🧼 After this, a special serum is applied to the skin to deeply hydrate and nourish it. 💧
Finally, the HydraFacial device is used to perform a vortex-extraction to remove any remaining debris and dirt from the pores. 🔬
To ensure the best possible results, it is important to follow up with the client after the treatment. 💁♀️ This includes discussing the results and providing advice on how to maintain the effects of the HydraFacial. 🤗
We hope you find this training manual helpful and informative! 🤗
