My First HydraFacial at Caesar’s Qua Spa in Las Vegas

This past weekend, my husband and I met up with our New Jersey friends in Las Vegas for a little sunshine, adult beverages and of course – the guys wanted to do a bit of gambling with the NFL season kicking off. I’m not much of a gambler (I like my money where I can see it – in my makeup drawer), but it was a chance for me to catch up with my BFF and spend some quality time pampering myself in the ultimate fashion – a spa trip to the luxe Caesars Qua Spa in Las Vegas. After days of reviewing their menu, I finally decided on a HydraFacial because I’ve heard incredible things about the results from YouTuber (and someone with similar skin to mine), Alexandrea Garza. I went into this experience with mass trepidation because facials at Caesar’s aren’t exactly affordable, but I’m happy to report it may be well worth your time. Let’s get to my Caesars Qua Spa Las Vegas review and chat more about this HydraFacial experience…

I decided on the HydraFacial not only because of Alexandrea Garza’s endorsement but because as nice as massages are, most of my tension tends to be held in the neck and shoulders. Getting a facial not only addresses my high-maintenance skin but also provides a light massage for the neck and shoulders, too. Plus, I like to get facials every three months for maintenance and I was due. Go big or go home, right?

I got to my appointment at Caesar’s Qua Baths and Spa about 30 minutes early for check in and for someone who has never visited a spa in Las Vegas, I was a little intimidated but everyone from the front desk to my aesthetician, Ashley, was very kind, humble and helpful. The spa set-up is very easy to navigate and I didn’t get lost once (lol)! It’s clothing optional, but I personally didn’t see anyone naked albeit a couple of women getting out of the shower/dressed. Most of the women utilizing the spa areas (sauna, Laconia Room, etc.) seemed to have their swimsuits on or were wrapped in a towel. Just in case nakedness scares you…

Anyways… onto my facial!

When I walked into my treatment room, this fancy machine was directly next to the bedside with all its fancy attachments. The key words that I think of when I see people’s results from a HydraFacial are glowing, hydrated, healthy, poreless, and youthful. Particularly after traveling by plane and being in the arid Nevada air, even my oily skin was looking parched and needed some glow.

Ashley explained that the HydraFacial tends to have longer-lasting effects than a traditional facial and would be especially beneficial to my sensitive, acne-prone skin because it helps improve the texture and tone of the skin. The attachments address many of the same traditional facial steps – including extractions (which I am always most interested in during facials since I get congested pores very easily).

The first step

was to gently cleanse and exfoliate with the attachment. The head that was used felt like a nickel-sized vacuum cleaner being smoothed across my face with a very slippery serum. The cleansing serum used during this step is supposed to brighten the skin.

The second step

is exfoliation with a blend of salicylic and glycolic acid. Since I was traveling and Ashley wanted to be gentle, she chose a very mild 7% sal/gly combo (which honestly is very gentle for my skin – I regularly use 4% salicylic acid and up to 20% glycolic products). Again, the application method with the attachment felt like a mini vacuum… except, this time, I felt a lot more serum/gel on my face and there was a very slight tingle (even with that mild 7% concentration). The sal/gly combo is great for preventing acne, clogged pores, and fine lines.

The third step

is extractions! This is my favorite part of a facial because although it can be gross, I feel it’s what makes the skin look smoother and more glowing/clear. I was really curious how this machine was going to accomplish extractions since a standard facial uses steam and a traditional extraction tool. The attachment head used for this step had a stronger suction, but I was hesitant to believe it was effective (until the end of the treatment when I saw my face…). Stay with me though…

The last step

is an infusion of hyaluronic acid and collagen into the newly deep cleaned pores. Feeling similar to the second step, a slippery serum was smoothed over my face with the attachment. This step is supposed to plump up fine lines and help rejuvenate the skin.

*Boosters are also offered at most spas that offer HydraFacials. These can be anything from extended LED light sessions (to help kill acne-causing bacteria), collagen boosts for fine lines/wrinkles, brightening for dullness/uneven skin, or an antioxidant boost to help with general anti-aging. These are optional and range in price since they extend the basic treatment time. I did not get any boosters this time.

The entire treatment took 50 minutes. Any time I get a facial, I basically have a 50/50 shot at being a red/flushed mess, or my skin looking calm and awesome. You just never know what’s going to happen! When I looked at myself in the mirror, I looked like I had a full face of dewy foundation. My skin looked incredible and super clear. It felt like an angel – no dry patches, no uneven texture. My couple of blemishes were dramatically less noticeable. I couldn’t believe it and couldn’t stop looking at my face (I wish I had a picture). I rarely feel comfortable to go out without makeup on but after this treatment, I did, and the results continue to show their impact four days later and counting…

Now I get the hype around the HydraFacial and already located an office nearby that I can get my next one! You can look it up here to find a provider near you. Luckily, getting a HydraFacial NOT at a spa in Vegas is a bit more affordable (although you won’t have the beautiful ambiance, I’m sure) 😉

If you’re heading to Las Vegas soon, I definitely recommend saving up for a spa day at Caesars Qua Baths and Spa and asking about their specials (they do monthly specials and also have more affordable weekday prices) or getting a HydraFacial. It would be a great way to kick off your trip OR right before you head home so you look glowing and fabulous.
