 Hydrafacial History

History of HydraFacial

The HydraFacial has its roots in Microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion has been a large part of the non-surgical aesthetic movement for over a decade. However, side effects, including redness and discomfort, along with a desire to improve the procedure’s efficiency, led to the development of hydradermabrasion.

Hydradermabrasion uses the patented Vortex fusion tips to perform its four functions; exfoliation, extraction, cleansing, and hydration. Edge Systems created the HydraFacial. The company pioneered the concept of hydradermabrasion, which led to the patented technology of HydraFacial. As of today, HydraFacial is widely available in over 75 countries throughout the world.
