What is HydraFacial?

HydraFacial is a treatment that combines microdermabrasion-like exfoliation with specialized hydrating serums. Its unique 3-step process deep cleans the skin to treat acne, dryness, redness, and other conditions. HydraFacial is a gentle, noninvasive option for those who want to give a boost to their skin without harsh lasers or chemicals. It is similar in principle to a regular facial you might receive at a spa, but it adds powerful nutrients customized to your specific skin type.

Who Is a Good Candidate for a HydraFacial?

HydraFacial is an excellent option for anyone who wants to smooth, exfoliate, and protect their skin. When performed monthly, it improves clogged pores and acne, fades fine lines, and restores elasticity and firmness. Because even patients with sensitive skin can tolerate treatment, nearly everyone is a good candidate for the procedure. HydraFacial serums are customizable and can be adjusted to meet your specific skin needs. Some people opt for HydraFacials to maintain their results after AviClear™ or other acne treatments.

What Happens During a HydraFacial Treatment?

Each HydraFacial procedure features 3 elements:

  1. A wand-shaped device is held against your face to clear away dirt and oil stuck deep within your pores. A gentle peel may also be used to exfoliate dead skin cells and expose the healthy skin underneath.
  2. A vacuum-like attachment at the top of the wand vacuums debris from your pores.
  3. A small pen-shaped attachment applies moisturizing serums rich in antioxidants.

Sessions typically take only 30 minutes or less.

What Is Recovery Like After a HydraFacial?

HydraFacial treatments improve skin texture and create a more even tone and vibrancy. Because the procedure is noninvasive, there is little to no downtime and you can return to work or home right away. Wear proper skin protection after your session to maintain your results for as long as possible. Many patients enjoy returning for follow-up treatments every few weeks to keep their skin looking fresh and well-hydrated.

Can I Combine HydraFacial With Other Skin Treatments?

Because HydraFacial is very gentle, it complements many other skin treatments. We often use it to “prime” the skin before other, more intense procedures such as laser skin resurfacing. HydraFacial sessions can be paired with dermal fillers or intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy to further smooth and sculpt the face. When used with HydraFacial, these treatments reveal a radiant glow while restoring hydration and firmness.

If dry, wrinkled skin is making you look older than you feel, protect and strengthen your skin with a HydraFacial treatment.
