Many individuals hope to achieve smooth, radiant, and even skin like their favorite stars.

Fortunately, HydraFacial is an in-office treatment that can target wrinkles, fine lines, clogged and enlarged pores, oily skin, hyper-pigmentation, and brown spots to help patients achieve that facial glow.

Best of all, this procedure has zero downtime and can be done over your lunchbreak.  Here’s everything you need to know about HydraFacial.

What Is HydraFacial?

HydraFacial is a non-invasive treatment that removes oil, dirt, bacteria, make-up, and dead skin cells from the face.

How Does a HydraFacial Treatment Work?

The device delivers oxygenated and vitamin infused water through a wand, exfoliates skin with a resurfacing tip, and uses its vortex technology to suction all impurities from the skin.

In addition, HydraFacial is often performed in combination with a chemical peel, nourishing serums, LED therapy, and microcurrent attachments.

Who’s a Good Candidate for Hydrafacial?

HydraFacial can be customized to each patient’s needs and goals and can safely and effectively treat all skin types. It works especially well for skin that’s dehydrated, sensitive, or prone to redness and is much gentler than microdermabrasion.

What to Expect During Treatment?

First, the skin will be cleansed and exfoliated.  Then, a glycolic peel will be applied and removed, before extractions begin. Lastly, the skin is infused with nourishing serums.

All of these steps are achieved using different wand attachments, and the typical treatment time is 25-90 minutes.

Most patients find the HydraFacial process to be very comfortable, and describe it as a sensation of cool air on the skin.

Benefits of HydraFacial

HydraFacial is unique in its ability to gently stimulate collagen, plump skin, and deliver nourishing serums to the dermis without irritation or downtime.

As a result, the treatment diminishes the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, and skin is softer, hydrated, less puffy, and more radiant. For optimal effects, a series of six treatments spaced a month apart is recommended.
