New Clinical Study Finds Hydrafacial Clarifying Treatments Improve Acne Skin Concerns in 100 Percent of Participants

Beloved professional skincare treatment Hydrafacial is now clinically reported to improve acne skin concerns, according to a new study published in the peer-reviewed Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology (JCAD). The Beauty Health Company-owned brand (NASDAQ: SKIN) shared that 100 percent of study participants reported clearer, less inflamed skin after a series of clarifying treatments with Hydrafacial’s patented vortex fusion device and blue LED light.

During the 12-week assessment, study participants, ranging in age from 19 to 48 and with varied skin tones, received a clarifying Hydrafacial treatment from a trained esthetician every two weeks. All participants reported a significant improvement in acne severity, finding they had fewer acne lesions and cleaner, more radiant-looking skin.

Additionally, participants reported a significant boost in confidence in their appearance at the conclusion of the study, growing from 40 percent feeling more confident after their first treatment to 100 percent, after their final treatment.

“We are thrilled to present these latest findings on the benefits of Hydrafacial clarifying treatments for those suffering from acne,” says BeautyHealth Chief Medical Officer and study co-author Dr. Jwala Karnik. “Anyone who has ever experienced acne understands the desire to find a solution that truly works and can help them feel more confident in their appearance. Our hope is that these findings encourage anyone suffering from acne to try this clarifying treatment and see the results for themselves.”

Beyond clarifying benefits, every Hydrafacial treatment is highly customizable via a portfolio of more than 20 boosters designed to address individual skin concerns. Unlike traditional facials, it’s performed via device rather than by hand, for deeper penetration and longer lasting results.
