What is Hydrafacial?

A hydrafacial is a resurfacing treatment that clears your pores out and hydrates your skin. It is a four-step treatment that cleanses, exfoliates, extracts, and hydrates the skin with serums that are infused into pores with the HydraPeel Tip.

The revitalizing HydraFacial treatment is very safe and gentle and does not irritate the skin. Because of this, it is an especially ideal treatment option for those with sensitive skin.

Sensitive skin poses unique challenges.  The safe and mild HydraFacial resurfacing treatment revitalizes skin without irritation by clearing the pores and infusing hydration.  Our patients, with or without sensitive skin, love this calming, soothing procedure, and they love the rosy radiance it provides.

What Does Hydrafacial Treat?

By increasing skin health and cleansing the skin on a deep level, a HydraFacial treatment can address a number of issues:

  • Acne
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Hyper-pigmentation
  • Sun Damage/rough texture
  • Enlarged pores
  • Skin laxity
  • Dullness

After a rejuvenating HydraFacial, the skin is left with a rosy glow. We are able to customize the serum used in your HydraFacial, so the exact issues that your treatment addresses will vary based on your needs.

How Does Hydrafacial Work?

HydraFacial is a four-step treatment that cleanses, exfoliates, extracts impurities, and hydrates the skin with serums that are introduced into pores via the HydraPeel tip. The technology consists of a handheld pen-like device that employs four different HydraPeel tips and various skincare solutions, including exfoliants, antioxidants, and hydrating serums. The spiral design of the tips creates a vortex effect to easily dislodge and remove impurities, while simultaneously introducing solutions that exfoliate, hydrate, and permeate the skin with antioxidants.

A HydraFacial treatment may be perfect for effective and nourishing skin rejuvenation. During your personalized consultation, you will have the opportunity to ask questions regarding the procedures and skincare products that are right for you.

Who Can Benefit?

Our skincare professionals customize the serum used in your HydraFacial to address your specific needs. The skincare concerns that HydraFacial treats include:

  • Acne
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Sun damage/rough texture
  • Enlarged pores
  • Skin laxity
  • Dullness

What Can I Expect?

During a HydraFacial, a certified medical laser technician moves the device over the treatment area, delivering different solutions at varying degrees of pressure, while drawing out sebum and dead skin cells.

Since HydraFacial is gentle and non-invasive, it does not necessitate any downtime. A bit of temporary redness may be visible for a few hours after the treatment, but it quickly fades. Shedding of dead skin cells may occur in a day or two after the HydraFacial, and it may persist for a couple of days, but this normal exfoliation reveals smoother skin in the treated area. The application of an approved sunscreen, especially during the week following your treatment, is vital to the protection of your new healthy skin cells.

For optimal results, we recommend monthly treatments.

After Your Hydrafacial

Because the HydraFacial is a gentle and non-invasive technique, it does not necessitate any downtime or recovery period. The only side effect is a small degree of temporary redness in the treatment area.

Avoid exposing your face to water for around six hours after the HydraFacial, since water can reactivate the peel. Do not wear makeup for the rest of the day, and avoid chemical exfoliants for two days following your treatment.

Flaking of dead skin cells can occur a couple days after the HydraFacial, and it may persist for a day or two. This is normal exfoliation and will uncover smooth new skin in the area.

You will need to stay away from saunas, hot showers, and other situations involving extreme heat for twenty-four hours. Proper sunscreen will be very important for protecting your new healthy skin cells, since they will be especially vulnerable to sun damage for around a week.
