How Does The SaltFacial® Differ from the Hydrafacial?

Oh facials, one of the core pillars of any good skincare regime. Facials are known for combining relaxation with rejuvenation, focusing on a part of our body that gets the most attention and usage in every aspect of our day-to-day lives. 

Among the most popular are the Hydrafacial and The SaltFacial®, both similar in design, offering a three-step process for a healthier glow.

However, one key differentiator between the two facials is that The SaltFacial® (and its corresponding medical device) can only be offered at a medical practice. Mint & Needle, a medical aesthetics practice, was honored to be among the first in the Middletown area to offer The SaltFacial®.

The SaltFacial® has been running the market for years, using the salt minerals to exfoliate the skin and an aesthetic medical device to renew the skin and provide nonthermal facial resurfacing without synthetic ingredients or chemicals. This three-part treatment improves texture and tone, rejuvenates the skin, and minimizes the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, uneven skin tone, and acne scarring. 

The Hydrafacial is a good water therapy facial for routine skin maintenance, as it helps with decongestion and overall skin health. The Hydrafacial uses water as its means for exfoliation versus The SaltFacial®, which uses natural sea salt. The Hydrafacial infuses various treatment-focused serums into the skin for a clean and hydrated result. Hydrafacials can be administered at any spa and safe for regular monthly treatments. 

The SaltFacial® combines the beauty of pure, natural sea salt with cutting-edge aesthetic Ultrasound and high-powered LED phototherapy, to deliver a treatment unlike any other. The SaltFacial® will help treat and manage acne, scarring, hyperpigmentation, and texture. With the nonthermal facial resurfacing, The SaltFacial® can also be used as a monthly treatment for ongoing management.

Benefits of The SaltFacial®


Most places do not offer The SaltFacial®, but Mint & Needle, being science- and medically-focused, offers this service as a natural alternative to the harsh, chemical-based facials for better, faster results.

Due to the special healing properties of The SaltFacial®, Mint & Needle is excited to offer this service in-house. While the recommendation is a total of three treatment sessions, you are welcome to have one standalone session before scheduling the rest. Book your appointment today
