Personalize Your Facial
HydraFacials are meant to be safe and effective for men and women of all skin types and ages. The procedure can be personalized to meet your unique needs. Complexion problems that can be addressed with a HydraFacial are:
- Sun or brown spots
- Infrequent or chronic acne outbreaks
- Reduced skin firmness or elasticity
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Congested or large pores
- Oily or greasy skin
- Rough texture
- Dull or uneven tone
HydraFacials can be done in one of our private treatment rooms in around 30 – 45 minutes. The procedure will start with an initial consultation to determine the best approach to the HydraFacial. Once your plan is developed, you can lie back in a chair in one of our treatment rooms as your procedure starts. HydraFacials use six basic parts: cleaning, exfoliation, extraction of the pores, moisturization, a nourishing serum, and protection. These parts are personalized to your skin's needs with the best cleanser, exfoliation method, serums, moisturizers, and any other needed products. A HydraFacial may be further customized by adding on another skin treatment, like a chemical peel.
What to Expect with HydraFacial®
If you want, you will be able to put on cosmetics after your HydraFacial to cover any redness before you return to your daily routine. You will probably see noticeable skin improvements shortly following your treatment with final results in a few days. For maintenance of your newly improved skin tone, we suggest getting these treatments in monthly intervals. In your initial consultation, we will schedule ongoing appointments and talk about creating a home skin care routine to keep your complexion healthy between HydraFacial treatments.
HydraFacial Ideal Candidates
How much does a HydraFacial cost?
When you include a HydraFacial in your skin care treatment, you may need a series of facials to get the results you want. Your aesthetician will discuss the fees with you during your skin assessment. There may be additional add-on serums you might need for specific conditions, which will increase the price.
Can I get a facial with active acne?
One of the benefits of HydraFacials is that they can be customized for many skin conditions, including active acne. Your aesthetician will glide the HydraFacial handpiece over your face, which has a vacuum-like suction that gently pulls bacteria, dead skin cells, and debris from your skin, even with acne. If you need to have a more in-depth extraction, your aestheticians will perform this as well.
How often can I have a HydraFacial?
You may think that more is better with the HydraFacial; however, we recommend having this treatment about once a month. You may need a series of treatments for your skin to adjust, heal, and reveal improvements over time. During your consultation, your aesthetician will discuss how often you should get a HydraFacial based on your skin's condition, your concerns, and your goals.
I have oily skin. Why would I want to have a HydraFacial?
You may think that you do not need to "hydrate" oily skin, but this is not the case. The HydraFacial will do an amazing job at cleaning out your pores that are regularly oversaturated with oil produced by your own skin. With a HydraFacial, you will experience a cleaner look and feel to your skin. We can also customize what serums and products we use on your skin to improve your oily skin.
Is this treatment good for all skin types?
The good news is that the HydraFacial is one treatment that most patients have excellent results without adverse side effects. If you have sensitive skin or have had a reaction to an ingredient in the serums, you may bring it up at your appointment that you have concerns for your skin. Your aesthetician will assess your skin and customize your HydraFacial to fit your needs and goals.
