What is HydraFacial?
Combining the benefits of microdermabrasion with patented hydrating serums, HydraFacial goes beyond the typical facial to accomplish even more stunning results for a variety of skincare concerns.
The HydraFacial device consists of a spiral-shaped tip that creates a targeted vortex on the skin, allowing greater efficiency and comfort while achieving deep exfoliation, hydration, and protection. The treatment consists of a three-step process that uses the vortex tip, skin peel, suction pen, and hydrating serums to provide gentle and refreshing results.
What Can HydraFacial Accomplish?
Regular HydraFacial treatments can help achieve the following facial skin benefits:
- Better skin elasticity
- Brighter skin
- Smaller pores
- Fewer brown spots
- Smoother texture
- Less oily skin
- More even skin tone
- Reduced fine lines and wrinkles
In addition, HydraFacial can help with specific concerns, such as acne and blackheads, as well as rosacea, and may even provide anti-aging benefits when used regularly. These benefits include fewer fine lines or less apparent wrinkles, as well as smaller pores.
What to Expect from HydraFacial Treatment
HydraFacials are famous for their simple three-step, 30-minute process. First, one of our board-certified team members will use the HydraFacial wand to deeply exfoliate and clear away dirt and debris from your pores. In addition, a proprietary facial peel will be applied for further purification.
Next, the device gently suctions away loosened dirt and debris in the pores, while hydrating with HydraFacial’s moisturizing serums. Finally, your skin will be saturated with antioxidants and peptides to lock in your refreshed appearance while also helping to protect skin against damage from UV rays and environmental stressors.
Results and Recovery
There is no downtime required after HydraFacial, although patients may be advised to avoid any deep cleansing or exfoliating for a few days after treatment. Unlike with chemical peels, which can make the skin highly sensitive and can cause redness, a HydraFacial allows you to continue on with your regular activities right away without any side effects. We always recommend patients use a broad-spectrum sunscreen on a daily basis, especially after a facial, to protect the skin from sun damage.
How Often to Get A HydraFacial
During a consultation with our providers, we’ll help you craft a personalized skincare plan that includes HydraFacial treatments. Many patients opt to have this done once a month, whereas others benefit from more frequent treatments. This depends on your skin type, concerns, and desired goals.
