Hydromicrodermoabrasion, sometimes referred to as hydradermabrasion, has rapidly established itself as the facial care method of choice, revolutionizing the traditional skin cleansing routine. Unlike the classic exfoliation methods that still dominate many beauty salons, hydromicrodermoabrasion offers a much gentler, more skin-friendly approach. This innovative treatment combines the efficacy of deep exfoliation with moisturizing and regenerating benefits, offering a complete treatment suited to a variety of skin types. But what exactly are these advantages that set it apart from other techniques? In the following article, we'll explore these aspects in detail, highlighting the reasons why hydromicrodermoabrasion has become an indispensable part of modern facial care routines.

Focus on an essential skincare routine

The first crucial step in any facial is a thorough cleansing of the skin. In the past, the use of a cleansing milk followed by an exfoliant was the norm to prepare the skin. However, technological advances have brought more sophisticated and effective methods for deep cleansing. These innovations make it possible to penetrate the epidermis and pores more intensively, to remove impurities, blackheads, comedones and make-up residues with precision. Among these advances, hydromicrodermabrasion stands out. Inspired by the techniques of médi-esthétique and highly acclaimed by British cosmeticians, this method is now widely adopted by aestheticians and skin therapists. It has become an everyday tool in beauty cabins and institutes, offering remarkable results in skin purification and rejuvenation.



  Dermabrasion Hydromicrodermabrasion
Exfoliation method Uses crystals (such as aluminum oxide) or a diamond tip to exfoliate the surface layers of the skin mechanically. This exfoliation removes dead skin cells, revealing a fresher, healthier bottom layer.

Combines mécanic exfoliation with the use of pressurized water and air. This method is gentler than traditional microdermabrasion because it doesn't use abrasive particles.

Hydration and skin care Focuses primarily on exfoliation and does not incorporate moisturizing ingredients into the process. Intègre hydration into the treatment by simultaneously infusing the skin with moisturizing sérums during exfoliation. This helps hydrate the skin, making it ideal for sensitive or dehydrated skin types.
For sensitive skin

May be too abrasive for sensitive skin, potentially leading to more redness and irritation.

More gentle and better tolerated by sensitive skin due to its moisturizing action and less aggressive exfoliation process.

Results and side effects

May cause temporary redness and tightness of the skin after treatment, necessitating a recovery period.

Side effects are generally milder, with faster recovery. Customers can often return to their normal activities immediately after treatment.


There are four types of microdermabrasion:

  • Oxygen dermabrasion: using a powerful jet of oxygen to target the skin, the skin is infused with lotions and micro-bubbles that have a moisturizing and antibacterial effect.
  • Diamond dermabrasion: the top layer of skin is limed with the diamond treatment tip. Dead skin cells and impurities are simultaneously vacuumed away.
  • Crystal dermabrasion: this technique also vacuums the skin. At the same time, microscopic crystals are projected onto the skin's surface, staining skin cells and removing them.
  • Hydro-microdermabrasion: this treatment infuses the skin with nourishing lotions for a moisturizing, revitalizing and cleansing effect.

What is hydromicrodermabrasion

Hydromicrodermabrasion is a skincare method that combines gentle exfoliation with deep hydration. Developed as an advance on traditional microdermabrasion, this technique uses water as an exfoliating medium, reducing the abrasiveness of the treatment. Since its introduction at the beginning of the 21st century, it has rapidly gained in popularity thanks to its remarkable results and compatibility with a variety of skin types.

In contrast to traditional microdermabrasion, which uses abrasive particles to remove dead skin cells, hydromicrodermabrasion is much less aggressive, making the treatment suitable even for sensitive skin. The effectiveness of this method lies in its ability to deeply purify pores while stimulating collagen production, essential for healthy, rejuvenated skin.

Déroulé type d'un soin

Performing a treatment with the device is very simple. First of all, you need to attach the appropriate lotion to the back of the device. Next, attach the collection bottle to the unit. Two parameters then need to be set: suction force (suction) and flow strength (flow). Treatment can now begin. To treat small areas, such as the nose, mouth or between the eyebrows, it is advisable to use the small nozzle, and for larger areas the larger nozzles. After treatment, you can show your customer all the impurities in the collection bottle. For example, dandruff, sebum or blackheads. It gives customers a great deal of satisfaction to see this after a treatment. 



Is hydromicrodermabrasion suitable for personal use?

Despite the growing number of devices sold for home use, they are not as safe and effective as the professional equipment used by estheticians and skin therapists. Thanks to the success of this facial treatment, dermabrasion is also sold in the form of a smaller, easy-to-use device. To your customers, this may seem like the ideal solution to replace your facial treatment, but nothing could be further from the truth. These devices often don't offer the required safety, they suck up too much or too little of the epidermis, they don't use nourishing lotions to infuse the skin, only water, and they are no substitute for a professional microdermabrasion session.
