This 30-minute treatment extracts debris, deeply cleanses, and hydrates the skin. It combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration and antioxidant protection that removes dead skin cells and impurities, while simultaneously delivering moisturizing serums into the skin.
The more luxurious version of our 30-minute HydraFacial®, the 60-minute Custom Clinical Facial with HydraFacial® is ideal for those who want to treat the entire face, neck, and chest. This facial is an all-inclusive and fully customizable treatment. Multiple modalities are used to exfoliate the skin, extract the pores, and infuse proven ingredients such as peptides and stem cells to initiate the production of new collagen and elastin fibers that thicken the skin, helping to smooth fine lines. Massage is added to improve circulation and help you relax. This facial can be done in conjunction with more advanced skincare treatment packages for continued support and maintenance.
What is HydraFacial®?
HydraFacial® uses patented technology to cleanse, extract, and hydrate. HydraFacial® super serums are made with nourishing ingredients that create an instantly gratifying glow in just 3 steps:
- Cleanse and Peel - Uncover a new layer of skin with gentle exfoliation and relaxing resurfacing.
- Extract and Hydrate - Remove debris from pores with painless suction. Nourish with intense moisturizers that quench skin.
- Fuse and Protect - Saturate the skin’s surface with antioxidants and peptides to maximize your glow.
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, and skin texture, tone and vibrance--all without downtime.
After a HydraFacial® treatment, you are free to go about your day as usual. There is no aftercare or downtime associated with the treatment!
HydraFacial® delivers instant and long-lasting results that you can see and feel. With ongoing treatments, you’ll notice intensely improved hydration, minimized dark spots and dramatically reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Who Is an Ideal Candidate for HydraFacial?
Most adults who are 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 for 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 the Treatment Take?
The standard HydraFacial treatment imparts luxurious skin cleansing and nourishment in just 30 minutes with no downtime. Our 60-minute Custom Clinical Facial addresses a wider treatment area that includes the neck and chest as well as the face. 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 for hours after the treatment.
How Long Will the Results Last?
A single HydraFacial treatment provides outstanding skin improvements that can last 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 on a monthly basis or at intervals that suit your particular needs.
Are There any Side Effects?
The HydraFacial is cleansing and nourishing with some very mild extractions in between those two steps. Most of our patients experience zero residual effects other than gorgeous skin. You may develop subtle redness after the HydraFacial. If you do, it should resolve within a few hours at the most. Your provider may discuss general guidelines for mitigating potential side effects, such as continued avoidance of acidic skincare products and sun exposure.
How Can I Prepare for My HydraFacial?
When you consult with your aesthetic provider about HydraFacial treatment, it is important to discuss 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.
During the several days before getting a HydraFacial, you may be advised to avoid too much 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 done even if you have been treated with Botox or dermal fillers. It can be combined with microneedling, dermaplaning, and can even be a complement to an eyelid lift to enhance the outcome of that procedure.
