The Hydrafacial is a medical grade device that uses a series of suction and water jets to cleanse, exfoliate, and extract debris from the skin.
It is often used to improve the appearance of the skin, reduce the appearance of pores, and treat acne. The Hydrafacial is also effective at removing accumulated sebum, makeup and other contaminants from the skin.
The Hydrafacial is a non-invasive treatment that can provide a variety of benefits, including:
Most people are good candidates for a Hydrafacial, especially if you want the following areas addressed:
Those who are on accutane, have immunodeficiency, severe cystic acne, or active herpes or other skin infections will need to delay this treatment.
Hydrafacial is a safe and comfortable treatment that can be performed in as little as 30 minutes (Signature Hydrafacial).
The procedure begins with cleansing the skin using suction and water jets. This is followed by applying an exfoliating serum that helps remove any dead skin cells. Next, the debris is extracted from the skin with the help of suction. Lastly, a moisturizing serum is applied to the skin to hydrate and protect it. The basic 30 minute Hydrafacial is termed Signature Hydrafacial, however various other specialized treatments can be added on, such as personalized boosters addressing specific issues (fine lines, hyperpigmentation, etc) and LED therapy in the Deluxe Hydrafacial, and the addition of lymphatic massage in the Platinum Hydrafacial.
There is no downtime required after a Hydrafacial. You can resume your normal activities immediately following the treatment. Some people may experience minor redness or swelling right after, but this generally dissipates within a few hours.
You should see an improvement in the appearance of your skin after just one treatment.
However, a series of treatments approximately every month is recommended to achieve the best results. Call and ask about our Hydrafacial packages available.

There is no real downtime required after a Hydrafacial. You can resume your normal activities immediately following the treatment.

Because Hydrafacials can be customized for virtually anyone, they can be made safe for pregnant or breastfeeding women. However, please consult with your aesthetician beforehand.
