What’s one of the most popular spa treatments in the country today? Think about the most critical aspects of skin health; glowing, hydrated skin. Enter Hydrafacial.

When it comes to taking care of your skin, face and overall appearance, never settle. Great skin care can do wonders for protecting you from premature signs of aging and keep you looking fresh, vibrant and youthful. At the forefront of advanced skin care, there is the Hydrafacial.

With Hydrafacial, you can achieve a refreshing facial treatment that exfoliates, moisturizes and rejuvenates your skin in a single soothing session that requires zero downtime.

About Hydrafacial

HydraFacial MD® is a non-invasive, multistep treatment that combines the benefits of next-level hydradermabrasion, a chemical peel, automated painless extractions (no pinching!) and a special delivery of antioxidants, hyaluronic acid and peptides. It does all of this in one quick treatment that delivers real results without downtime or irritation.

With HydraFacial, you are getting a hydrating, exfoliating, rejuvenating skin treatment in a single package. Customizable, convenient and long-lasting, the HydraFacial treatment can clear away the dull, discolored and damaged skin. The system is a 4-in-1 treatment with customizable phases that offer specialized boosts that can achieve deeper cleansing, restoration, and anti-aging.

When it comes to having beautiful, vibrant and clear skin, there are many forces that can work against you. Aging, the sun, smoke, stress and everyday life can dull your appearance. Sun protection, moisturizes and other over-the-counter counter skin care products are essential tools in the fight against the dull skin and premature signs of aging, but they are ultimately limited.

How it Works: Vortex-Fusion®

The unique Vortex-Fusion® serum delivery system is what sets the HydraFacial MD® apart from other procedures.

The multi-step treatment cleanses, evenly exfoliates and extracts to remove impurities and dead skin cells while at the same time replenishing vital nutrients, including antioxidants, peptides and hyaluronic acid. Thanks to the device’s superior delivery system, these performing ingredients are able to more effectively help mitigate environmental damage, reduce fine lines & wrinkles, and plump & firm skin for long-term results you can see and feel instantly.

The Customizable HydraFacial MD® treatment can be tailored to safely & effectively address your specific skin concerns. Our targeted problem/solution protocols were developed to help mitigate some of the most universal skin concerns, but your trained HydraFacial MD® professional can always further tailor your treatment to make it most exacting to your unique needs. Your skin isn’t like everyone else’s and your treatment shouldn’t have to be either.

Why HydraFacial MD®?

  • No Downtime! No Discomfort!
  • Can be done in 45 minutes
  • Immediate Visible Results
  • Effective for EVERY skin type
  • The MOST powerful non-invasive skin treatment for deeply cleaning skin, promoting healthier, more hydrated skin. Additionally, other therapies like Procell Microchanneling can be more effective with clean, hydrated skin.

What can a HydraFacial Procedure Treat?

HydraFacial technology rises to the challenge when it comes to treating the following:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Skin laxity
  • Dull skin tone
  • Discoloration, age spots, sun spots
  • Oily and Congested Skin
  • Enlarged Pores
  • Uneven skin texture

A single treatment can achieve all the above in a four-step process that is fully tailored to your needs.

What makes Hydrafacial Different?

At the cutting-edge of skin treatment technology, there are few, if any, treatments that can match Hydrafacial. Multiple areas and aging symptoms can be addressed conveniently and effectively, all without requiring any downtime. You can achieve a refreshed face without missing a beat out of your day.

In some respects, the HydraFacial has similar characteristics as chemical peels or microdermabrasion treatment.

HydraFacial Vs. Chemical Peels

At first glance, some may assume a chemical peel and a HydraFacial are the same. A chemical peel is a classic exfoliating skin treatment that has been around for many years. The chemical peel achieves results through the use of abrasive chemicals, usually a glycolic acid, that are applied topically to the skin. The chemical blends break down dirt, oil and old skin cells. The strength of a chemical peel will vary based on the peel formula and the length of time the peel is applied.

Although chemicals can deliver great results, the treatment is ultimately limited in scope. In many cases, patients who have chosen to undergo a chemical peel have found the experience uncomfortable. Those with upcoming parties, work events or social events will find the peeling and redness that occurs after a chemical peel to be a problem.

HydraFacial vs. Microdermabrasion

Another popular treatment, microdermabrasion, may be compared to the HydraFacial. A microdermabrasion exfoliates old, dead skin and clears surface-level skin blemishes by physically scraping away the top layer of skin. The treatment is performed either by using a handheld abrasive brush or by spraying finely grained microparticles from a handpiece. As the brush or wand is moved over the skin, the epidermis is scraped.

Similarly to a chemical peel, the microdermabrasion is commonly said to be uncomfortable. The microdermabrasion polishes your skin but may require multiple sessions to achieve complete results.

HydraFacial Boosts

A key aspect that separates HydraFacial from the rest of the available skin care treatments is its customization. The HydraFacial vortex applicator can simultaneously exfoliation skin while applying specialized Boosts. These Boosts are each unique formulations that are designed to achieve the best results according to your goals and needs.

GrowthFactor Boost

With the GrowthFactor Boost, smooth away fine lines and wrinkles. Formulated with a high concentration of essential growth factors that restore your skin’s health.

Bright Alive Boost

This formulation clears blemishes, discoloration and brightens skin tone. The brightening agents such as Ogliopeptide-68, Diglucosyl Gallic Acid, and N-Acetyl Glucosamine are a powerful combination that achieves a clear, even complexion.

DermaBuilder Boost

The DermaBuilder Boost is a restorative formula of octapeptides, dipeptides and deep hydrating conditioners that reduces fine lines and polishes dull skin.

Britenol Boost

The combination of Alpha-Arbutin and Vitamin C antioxidants repair your skin from sun damage and helps clear discoloration.

HydraFacial Experience

Your entire HydraFacial is performed in the convenience and comfort of our state-of-the-art treatment room. After an initial cleaning and prep, you are ready.

While lying down comfortably, the HydraFacial applicator is passed over the skin, taking extra care in problem areas. One pass covers the entire surface area of the face. The HydraFacial applicator’s unique Vortex cleanser uses a patented suction technique to remove dirt, oil and dead skin cells. Between each pass, a different Boost treatment can be applied to your skin depending on your needs. Build up and dull skin is broken up by the active ingredients in the Boosts and then suctioned away by each pass of the powerful Vortex applicator. One treatment, four steps and you receive a complete facial rejuvenation!

The HydraFacial is a soothing and relaxing experience as the serums provide a cooling, replenishing feeling to the skin. There is no burning or irritation. Your session will be finished in approximately half an hour.

Results and Recovery

After your treatment session is over, there is absolutely no downtime! You will up and back to your normal, daily routine without missing a single beat. Some patients may experience some redness or pinkness in skin done because of increased blood flow. After your treatment, we urge patients to avoid sun exposure and apply moisturizers to ensure the best results.

Each treatment can combine a variety of Boosts or may be paired with other skin revitalizing treatments for a comprehensive facial rejuvenation.
