According to a December 2022 clinical study published in the Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology (JCAD), Hydrafacial clarifying treatments improved acne skin concerns in 100% of study participants. This was the first clinical study to formally evaluate Hydrafacial as a clarifying treatment for acne, showing a direct correlation between skin improvements and treatments.

The 12-week, multi-center assessment tested the efficacy and tolerability of Hydrafacial clarifying treatments. It was conducted on 20 subjects with mild-to-moderate acne, ranging in age from 19 to 48, across Fitzpatrick skin types. Participants received a clarifying Hydrafacial treatment with blue LED light every two weeks for 12 weeks.

Study participants’ skin looked clearer, less inflamed and had fewer acne lesions. There was a significant improvement in acne severity, with 100% of participants finding they had clearer, healthier, and more radiant skin. Study participants reported fewer acne lesions and reduced inflammation and said their skin looked and felt cleaner. Participants reported a significant boost in confidence in their appearance, growing from 40% feeling more confident after their first treatment to 100% after their final treatment.
