There are so many choices–which HydraFacial Booster Serum is best for you? 

Thankfully, we’ve done the research and the testing for you. Here are the top three HydraFacial Booster serums that you should consider trying in 2022, based on your skincare concerns.

Options Are Good: HydraFAcial Booster Serums can be added to a standard HydraFacial for maximum results.

Review–What’s a HydraFacial Booster Serum?

If you’re reading this, you already know that HydraFacial is the world’s top hydradermabrasion treatment designed to give you instant, painfree, glowing skin in a short 30-45 minute treatment. HydraFacial uses unique, patented Vortex-Fusion technology to exfoliate, extract, and hydrate the skin. There are numerous options for customization and add-ons during your HydraFacial treatment, depending on your skincare goals. Add-ons include LED Light Therapy, Lymphatic Drainage, or Booster Serums which are designed to yield maximal results.

Booster Serums are delivered during the Step 3 of HydraFacial–the “Fuse & Protect” portion of your treatment. (Your skin has already been gently exfoliated and your pores decongested and unclogged during Steps 1 and 2) In Step 3, you’re ready to saturate the skin surface with a Booster Serum of your choice nourishing ingredients to maximize your glow. Think of a HydraFacial Booster Serum as a cocktail of ingredients that may vary depending on your skincare needs.
