Are You a Candidate?
Hydrafacial is designed for all skin types including thin skin, aging skin, ethnic skin, dry skin, and oily skin. Even sensitive skin types can easily tolerate a Hydrafacial treatment because it is gentle and non-irritating.
How the Hydrafacial Works
The Hydrafacial exfoliates dead skin cells and removes impurities from the ski. During the procedure, a vacuum-based, multi-faceted spiral abrasion tip is applied to the skin, while the healthy, underlying skin is bathed in active serums. These serums thoroughly exfoliate and hydrate the skin while providing residual antioxidant protection and soften, lift, and extract sebum and impurities.
There are up to six serums available in the Hydrafacial system, therefore the treatment can be personalized to suit your needs. The serums can be custom-blended to accommodate the unique condition of your skin.

What to Expect
The Hydrafacial treatment is fast and can take as little as 15 minutes. The procedure causes no discomfort. The feeling of receiving a Hydrafacial treatment is akin to the feeling of having your face painted with a cool paintbrush. There is no downtime required after a Hydrafacial treatment. Normal daily activities can be resumed immediately.
Many patients report that their skin looks and feels refined, smooth and radiant after just one Hydrafacial treatment. The smooth feeling lasts for a week or longer.
A series of six treatments is generally required in order to achieve optimal results. To maintain the results of Hydrafacial treatment, you need to get treated every two to four weeks.
Hydrafacial treatment is unique because it is the only skin resurfacing treatment that also hydrates the skin and improves its suppleness and elasticity. Furthermore, a Hydrafaical treatment will refine your skin’s tone and texture, make acne-prone skin less oily, visibly reduce wrinkles and fine lines and diminish hyperpigmentation.
