Thinking about investing in your confidence with a facial treatment? From microneedling to lasers, there is no shortage of nonsurgical options for creating glowing skin. With so many solutions out there, it can be difficult to decide which treatment will most quickly and effectively make your dream skin a reality.

In this blog post, I’ll share a bit about 4 of the most popular facial treatment options that help my Guilford patients get that radiant, youthful skin that glows from the inside, out.

Forever Young BBL™ Photofacial

Treatment time: 15 to 60 minutes

Recovery: Mild redness for 24 hours

Cost: Varies per treatment area

This light-based treatment uses several wavelengths of light (broadband light) to target blood vessels and pigmentation in the skin. These absorb the light and are naturally broken down, leaving behind more evenly pigmented skin.

Forever Young BBL is one of the most popular treatments on the market for sun damage on the face and body, but it also treats:

  • Rosacea
  • Vascular redness
  • Small spider veins
  • Broken capillaries

It’s worth adding this to your skincare routine if you’re a regular sun worshipper, have chronic redness in your skin, or looking to fade away mild freckles and dark spots.


Treatment time: Varies per treatment area

Recovery: Mild redness and swelling for 2 to 3 days

Cost: $420 for the face, add $250 for neck and décolletage

Also called collagen induction therapy, microneedling uses your body’s own healing properties to regenerate and rejuvenate your skin. The device creates tiny injuries in the skin, stimulating a healing response that includes increased collagen and elastin production for smoother, younger-looking skin.

Microneedling is a great choice for:

  • Acne
  • Dark spots (hyperpigmentation)
  • Large pores
  • Skin laxity
  • Scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Sun damage
  • Fine lines and wrinkles

It’s also ideal for those with deep skin tones who may not be able to have laser treatments done due to the risk of hyperpigmentation.

HydraFacial MD®

Treatment time: 30+ minutes

Recovery: Little to none

Cost: Varies per treatment

One of today’s most popular and effective facial treatments, HydraFacial uses Vortex-Fusion technology to deliver a 4-step treatment:

  1. Exfoliate away dead skin and debris
  2. Peel away impurities
  3. Extract pore blockages
  4. Infuse your skin with powerful serums

Each HydraFacial is customized to address your specific needs, with add-ons for the lips, eyes, acne, lymphatic drainage, and more.

HydraFacials are a favorite among people of all skin tones for treating:

  • Sun damage
  • Acne
  • Dryness
  • Discoloration
  • Uneven skin texture
  • Blackheads and whiteheads

AquaGold® Facial

Treatment time: Varies per treatment

Recovery: Little to none

Cost: $500+

AquaGold combines the best of BOTOX® Cosmetic, dermal fillers, microneedling, and more into one powerful and comfortable skin glow-up. AquaGold’s tiny 24k gold needles are hollow, allowing microdoses of BOTOX, fillers, serums, and more to penetrate directly into the skin with each “stamp.”

You may want to give it a try if you’re looking to treat:

  • Large pores
  • Irregular skin texture
  • Mild skin laxity
  • Acne scars
  • Dull or dry skin

While results last 2 to 3 months, some people consider this a must-have in their monthly skincare maintenance treatments.
