FAQ

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 – totally customized for your skin concerns! The treatment is soothing, refreshing, non-irritating and immediately effective.

Why is HydraFacial good for my skin?

Hydration is the foundation of healthy, radiant skin. Irritation of the skin has been proven to increase signs of aging. The HydraFacial is a hydrating and non-irritating treatment that will leave your skin radiant, glowing and nourished.

Am I a candidate for this treatment?

The HydraFacial treatment is designed for all skin types. Even the most sensitive skin benefits from the HydraFacial treatment. Your technician may choose specific treatment serums and/or customize the treatment for your unique skin conditions and needs. Book your complimentary consultation for a skin evaluation and sensitivity test.

How long does the treatment take? Is there any downtime or pain involved?

The HydraFacial treatment is a fast, efficient treatment that takes less than an hour out of your busy schedule. The treatment is often described as a feeling like a cool paintbrush moving over the face. You may put on make-up and return to your normal activities right after the treatment since there is no downtime.

What is the difference between a HydraFacial and Microdermabrasion treatment?

Microdermabrasion is a single step exfoliation process that works by abrading the top layer of skin and “vacuuming” the exfoliate away to reveal the new, fresh skin below. HydraFacial is the evolution of a microdermabrasion – a multi-step process that provides cleansing and exfoliation, a gentle peel to loosen dirt and debris from pores, extraction via vortex suction to clean out pores, and hydration of anti-oxidants and hydraluronic acid via patented vortex-fusion to nourish and protect your skin. Through the use of various tips and solutions, each step of the HydraFacial is customized to suit your skin type and concern – oily or dry skin, sensitive skin, fine lines and wrinkles. In addition, your HydraFacial can be customized to include lymphatic draining and/or red or blue LED therapy. A HydraFacial is a microdermabrasion treatment and so much more!

What results may be expected? How many treatments are needed to see results, and how long do results last?

Many people report seeing visible skin refinement and an even, radiant skin tone after just one treatment. The smooth results and hydration may last 5 to 7 days or even longer. One treatment per month is recommended for improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hyper-pigmentation, blackheads and whiteheads, acneic and oily or congested skin. Continued HydraFacial treatments are highly recommended to maintain results.

What areas other than the face can be treated with HydraFacial?

HydraFacial treatments can benefit the face & neck, decollete, hands and arms. Many men and sports enthusiasts also appreciate the HydraFacial for congestion and/or acne on the back – “Back-ne”.
