Why I Love the HydraFacial, Top Benefits from a Lake Tahoe Local

HydraFacial is the biggest innovation in facial technique since someone added brown sugar to a scrub and discovered the genius of exfoliation.

Broad statement. But really it’s not, because HydraFacial goes above and beyond the exfoliation, moisture, and extraction process of a basic facial. HydraFacial uses water and suction to deep clean and exfoliate your face and layers in a light peel along with intense moisture. View the Spa at Squaw Creek’s detailed HydraFacial description, but who really needs that when you have it in laymen’s terms.

And in laymen’s terms, the results are in and they came in quick. Take it from someone who just got her first HydraFacial: you look younger, skin firmer, your face glows, and you look HEALTHY.

Kind of a miracle if you ask me. Especially because Spa at Squaw Creek is the only spa in North Lake Tahoe on the California side that has the HydraFacial and I live just down the road!

And while the best parts of HydraFacial are the results - it clears up the hyperpigmentation and fine lines that are common in outdoor-loving Tahoe residents and frequent visitors - the second best aspect is how quick the facial is. At 25 minutes it’s a perfect lunch break. You can get add-ons that extend the life of your relaxation, but I don’t always have time to do that, so I opt for the basic version.

Take it from me – if you live here, have just spent a weekend here in the sun and dry air, or if your skin needs an overall boost no matter where you’re from, try a HydraFacial. The results are immediate. To fully see the extent of how much this facial can improve moisture, hyperpigmentation, and lessen fine lines, try a HydraFacial every thirty days for 3 – 6 months. It’s the best facial in Lake Tahoe.
