What is HydraFacial®?
HydraFacial cleanses, extracts, and hydrates the skin using exclusive technology. HydraFacial super serums contain nourishing elements that produce a rapid beautiful glow in just a few steps:
- Exfoliation - Gentle exfoliation and relaxing resurfacing reveal a fresh layer of skin.
- Extraction - The suction gently removes dirt from pores. Followed by strong moisturizers to hydrate the skin.
- Fuse and Protect - Saturate the skin's surface with antioxidants and peptides to maximize your glow.
HydraFacial provides immediate and lasting effects that you can see and feel. With ongoing treatments, you'll notice significantly enhanced moisture, fewer dark spots, and a dramatic reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
After a HydraFacial treatment, you are free to go about your day as usual. There is no aftercare or downtime associated with the treatment!
What Skin Types Are Best for HydraFacial Treatment?
HydraFacial addresses all basic skincare needs and is appropriate for all skin types, from oily, congested skin to dry, brittle skin. It helps address fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots, and enlarged pores and improves elasticity, firmness, skin texture, tone, and vibrance--all without downtime.
Who Is an Ideal Candidate for HydraFacial?
Most adults interested in HydraFacial treatment are good candidates for this clinical facial. HydraFacial treatment is a great treatment option for the general signs of aging and more specific concerns, such as:
- Sun damage
- Brown spots
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Enlarged pores
- Oily or greasy skin
- Dull skin tone
- Dry skin
- Early loss of elasticity
How Long Does HydraFacial Treatment Take?
The standard HydraFacial treatment imparts luxurious skin cleansing and nourishment in just 30 minutes with no downtime. We also offer a 60-minute Custom Clinical Facial, which addresses a wider treatment area, including the face, neck, and chest. This extended treatment is fully customized in the methods used to exfoliate and extract debris from pores. It also includes massage techniques to promote circulation and relaxation that last hours after the treatment.
How Long Will the Results Last?
A single HydraFacial treatment provides outstanding skin improvements lasting a week or longer. As a clinical facial, this treatment can smooth the skin, even out skin tone, and decrease the size of your pores. For prolonged results, you can schedule your HydraFacials monthly or at intervals that suit your particular needs.
Are There any Side Effects?
Most of our patients experience no residual effects other than gorgeous skin. You may develop subtle redness after the HydraFacial, which is completely normal and should resolve within a few hours at the most. Your doctor may discuss general guidelines for mitigating potential side effects, such as avoiding acidic skincare products and sun exposure.
How to Prepare for a HydraFacial
When you consult with your aesthetic provider about HydraFacial treatment, it is important to mention any recent use of products containing Isotretinoin, such as Accutane. Using Accutane may not exclude you from being a good candidate for HydraFacial treatment, but your provider may make some modifications to your treatment plan.
Several days before getting a HydraFacial, you may be advised to avoid excessive sun exposure. You can prevent this by applying broad-spectrum sunscreen daily, wearing sunglasses, and, if necessary, wearing a wide-brimmed hat. You will also need to avoid using acidic skincare products in the treatment area.
Can a HydraFacial Be Combined With Other Skin Treatments?
Skin rejuvenation treatments are often combined to achieve the absolute best results. HydraFacial treatments can be performed even if you have been treated with Botox or dermal fillers. It can be combined with microneedling and dermaplaning and can even complement an eyelid lift to enhance the outcome of that procedure.
