What is HydraFacial?
HydraFacial is an innovative, non-invasive skin treatment designed to clean the skin, exfoliate dead skin cells, eliminate pore congestion, and infuse the skin with hydration and nourishing serums. This dynamic treatment system is gentle and effective enough for all skin types, and sessions can be customized to focus on specific skin needs and goals identified during your initial evaluation. Best of all, there is typically no downtime or healing required after a HydraFacial treatment.
What Are the Benefits of HydraFacial?
The HydraFacial MD system is designed to provide significant skin benefits in as little as 30 minutes. For women and men who want to refresh the appearance of their skin, combat signs of aging, and treat skin challenges without discomfort or downtime, HydraFacial offers the advanced aesthetic technology these individuals desire. HydraFacial can achieve a broad range of skin rejuvenation goals and is recommended for the treatment of:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Large pores
- Dry skin
- Clogged pores
- Rough skin
- Dull skin
- Oily skin
- Uneven skin tone
- Diminished skin elasticity and firmness
The thorough cleansing, exfoliation, and hydration process reveals fresh, healthy skin that’s ready to receive all the benefits of HydraFacial’s proprietary medical-grade serums. These powerful serums penetrate the tissue and enhance the beauty and vitality of skin from within. HydraFacial is often performed as a fantastic skin preparation treatment prior to Vivace™ RF microneedling —another popular method of skin rejuvenation we offer. Multiple HydraFacial sessions performed at scheduled intervals can target a variety of skin concerns, help you achieve the greatest degree of skin improvement, or assist you in maintaining the quality of results over time.

What Happens During the HydraFacial Procedure?
During the HydraFacial procedure the specialized HydraFacial wand is glided along the facial skin (and neck skin if desired) treating every section outlined in the treatment plan. The wand cleanses as it exfoliates the skin, and extracts impurities from the pores with suction. As the skin is gently resurfaced and fresh skin is exposed, the wand applies a hydrating solution of peptides, hyaluronic acids, and antioxidants which plumps and fortifies the skin. You can choose to have additional “super serum” boosters added to your treatment to further nourish skin tissue and activate specific types of advanced improvements. You can choose from:
- Growth Factor (CTGF™) Booster – Infuses the skin with restorative proteins that aid in healthy maintenance of skin structure for the reduction of wrinkles and fine lines.
- Dermabuilder™ Booster – Saturates skin with conditioning peptides that even skin tone, smooth texture, and diminish wrinkles.
- Britenol™ Booster – Targets areas of hyperpigmentation (dark spots) and sun damage to create a brighter, more glowing complexion.
- Rozatrol® Booster – Helps minimize redness, dryness, skin sensitivity, and sebum buildup associated with rosacea.
Your HydraFacial session will be a minimum of 30 minutes, but can take longer if you have requested an intensive treatment for multiple concerns or desire treatment of a larger area of skin. Prior to the start of your session, you will be informed about how long your proposed treatment plan should take.
Is HydraFacial Painful?
HydraFacial was designed to be both effective and comfortable, and the majority of our patients remark that gentle HydraFacial treatment is virtually painless. There are no anesthetic creams to apply to numb the skin, and often patients find treatment relaxing. Compared with Vivace RF microneedling, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion treatments, HydraFacial is completely non-invasive and considered to be the most comfortable option for skin rejuvenation. Furthermore, uncomfortable after-effects are rarely—if ever—experienced.
Will I Have to Recover After My HydraFacial?
The vast majority of patients do not usually require any downtime or recovery following their HydraFacial session. Some temporary redness or tightness may develop immediately after your session; however, these effects typically dissipate very quickly. If you would like to conceal any redness with makeup following your session, you are free to do so. For further enhancement or maintenance of your results, you can discuss scheduling additional treatments at the appropriate intervals.
