What is a HydraFacial?
Are you looking for a quick and easy treatment option to improve your overall complexion for a beautiful glow? HydraFacial is a multi-step, completely non-invasive treatment that cleanses, extracts, and hydrates your skin for a radiant complexion. It is the only hydra-dermabrasion procedure that uses patented Vortex-Fusion technology to rejuvenate the skin. The Vortex-Fusion technology includes exfoliation to remove dead skin cells, a glycolic and salicylic acid peel, extraction, and serum to nourish and protect the skin. Treatment is broken up into sections, the first being Cleanse + Peel, followed by Extract + Hydrate, and finally, Fuse + Protect to finish.
This treatment system can address the following skincare needs:
- Fine lines and wrinkles.
- Elasticity and firmness.
- Even tone and vibrancy.
- Skin texture.
- Brown spots.
- Oily and congested skin and acne.
- Enlarged pores.
The HydraFacial Treatment
The HydraFacial treatment is a three-step process that takes between 30-60 minutes, depending on your individual skincare goals. There are a number of different types of HydraFacial treatments available, with some of the most popular including:
- Signature HydraFacial: Is a multi-step process to detoxify, rehydrate, and protect the skin.
- Neck & Chest HydraFacial: Includes the same steps as the signature HydraFacial, but targets the neck and chest.
- Acne HydraFacial: This HydraFacial focuses on extracting and cleansing the skin to combat acne.
- Dermabuilder HydraFacial: This process includes protein-rich peptides that soften lines and wrinkles, and stimulates collagen in the skin.
- Brightening HydraFacial: Includes treatments to create a brighter, clearer complexion to diminish discoloration on the skin.
Overall, during your treatment, the special HydraFacial device is used, and the vacuum-like tip is placed onto your skin. A soft suctioning sensation will be felt as the device is moved across your skin, cleansing, extracting impurities out of your pores, and applying serums to the skin. Generally, treatment is very customizable, and we will work with you to create a treatment that is just right for your skin type!

Who is a candidate for a HydraFacial?
The HydraFacial treatment is designed for all skin types. Even the most sensitive skin easily tolerates the HydraFacial treatment. Your physician or skincare professional may choose specific treatment serums and customize the treatment for your unique skin conditions and needs. Consult your physician or skincare professional for a skin evaluation and sensitivity test.
How long do Hydrafacials last?
The HydraFacial is a fast, efficient treatment that can take as little as 30 minutes to complete.
Does a HydraFacial require downtime and is the treatment painful?
Our goal is to help support you in a balanced lifestyle. HydraFacial is beneficial because it offers instant, noticeable results with no downtime or irritation. There is no downtime needed for this treatment, so you may put on makeup and return to your normal activities once your session is complete.
What results may be expected from a HydraFacial?
Patients can see an overall improvement in the appearance of the skin after just one HydraFacial treatment. Regardless of the specific type of treatment you choose, your skin will feel smooth and hydrated for about 7 days.
How many HydraFacial treatments are needed to see optimum results?
Many clients report seeing visible skin refinement and an even, radiant skin tone after just one treatment. There is no set amount of treatments that guarantee the best results. For continued improvements and upkeep, it is recommended that you get at least one HydraFacial treatment each month.
How long will the HydraFacial results last?
The smooth results and hydration may last 5 to 7 days or even longer. We don’t believe in quick fixes, so one treatment per month is recommended for improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots, oil, and congested skin. Continued HydraFacial treatments are highly recommended to maintain healthy skin results.
How often should you get a HydraFacial?
For people looking to maintain and improve their complexion in the long run, monthly HydraFacial treatments are a great way to achieve clear, radiant skin.
What should you not do after a HydraFacial?
After a HydraFacial, your skin will be sensitive, so you should avoid direct sunlight and harsh skincare products. Other than protecting your skin, you are free to go about your normal routine.
What can I expect from a HydraFacial?
HydraFacials can be customized for several unique skincare concerns, including acne, skin elasticity, brightening, or simply detoxifying and energizing the look of skin.
Will a HydraFacial make me breakout?
HydraFacials are designed to remove impurities, cleanse the skin deeply, and remove oils and debris that would otherwise cause a breakout.
Does a HydraFacial hurt?
No, a HydraFacial should not hurt. Because it uses microcrystals to exfoliate skin, it is not recommended for people with highly sensitive skin, active sunburns, or rashes, as it can cause further irritation.
There is no downtime required following HydraFacial treatments, so you can return to your everyday routine right away! Many patients see visible skin improvement following just one treatment, and hydration and smooth skin can last for 5-7 days. Receiving regular HydraFacial treatments monthly will only improve your skin over time.
Candidates for HydraFacial
The HydraFacial treatment is a great option for all skin types, from sensitive, to oily, to dry, and everything in between!
