Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Hydrafacial?
The HydraFacial treatment is a new breakthrough in aesthetic technology. It takes its name from the root word Hydrate, “to cause to take up moisture”. This ability to moisturize the skin separates the HydraFacial from all other skin resurfacing procedures. The HydraFacial treatment removes dead skin cells and extracts impurities while simultaneously bathing the new skin with cleansing, hydrating and moisturizing serums. The treatment is soothing, refreshing, non-irritating and immediately effective.
The HydraFacial exfoliates while simultaneously hydrating skin and is quick and painless. The results are often immediate and the visible effects are noticeable after one treatment. Hydrafacial is a specialized facial designed for all skin types (including sensitive skin) and treats a variety of skin issues, including acne, fine lines, and hyper-pigmentation. There is no skin irritation or downtime and the smoothness and hydration have a lasting effect. A study conducted on the efficacy of hydradermabrasion reported clinical improvements to facial tone and texture, less dyschromia (skin discoloration) and fewer fine lines.

How does Hydrafacial work?
The HydraFacial MD is a state of the art medical device.

The HydraFacial is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that delivers instant results with no discomfort or downtime. The procedure is immediately effective. Each treatment uses a series of HydroPeel tips – Each one has multiple peeling edges to exfoliate the skin several times each pass, achieving better, more even results. The unique spiral design creates a vortex effect to easily dislodge and remove impurities while simultaneously introducing hydrating skin solutions with potent antioxidants and peptides.
The HydraFacial utilizes an assortment of proprietary serums consisting of AHA/BHA acids, antioxidants, peptides and vitamin-infused hyaluronic acid that are administered via the HydraFacial Vortex-Fusion Technology. The technology behind the treatment is delivering greater results than anything else on the market. This is the only piece of equipment with patented Vortex-Fusion technology. This is how the serums are directly infused into the skin. The HydraFacial works within your skin, not on top of it.
