1. HydraFacial®

What Is a HydraFacial?

A HydraFacial is a comprehensive skincare treatment that improves the overall health and appearance of the skin. It can be tailored to address specific concerns, such as fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, sun damage, and oily or congested skin.

What Happens During a HydraFacial?

A HydraFacial typically involves the following steps:

  • Cleansing and Exfoliation: promotes smoother and brighter skin
  • Acid Peel: improves skin texture and preps the skin for extraction
  • Extraction: suctions out impurities
  • Hydration and Protection: replenishes moisture and nourishes the skin with customized serums

How Long Does a HydraFacial Last?

A HydraFacial is known for providing immediate, visible results with minimal downtime. The rejuvenating effects typically last up to a week after treatment. To maintain optimal results, we recommend making a HydraFacial part of your monthly skincare routine, as consistent treatments can have long-term benefits for your skin’s quality and health.

Is a HydraFacial Worth It?

By the end of your HydraFacial, your skin will be much more radiant, hydrated, and refreshed. If dullness, fine lines, uneven skin tone, or clogged pores are a concern, a HydraFacial is often well worth the investment—especially as a “quick fix” treatment before a special occasion or event.

2. AquaGold®

What Is an AquaGold Facial?

AquaGold is a specialized micro-injection device that delivers a customized blend of skincare ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid, BOTOX®, platelet-rich plasma (PRP), vitamin C, and other serums directly into the skin’s superficial layers. It uses ultrafine 24k gold needles to introduce these substances into the skin for facial rejuvenation and skin enhancement.

What Happens During an AquaGold Facial?

Here’s what you can expect from your AquaGold treatment:

  • Personalized Skincare Formula: blended to address your unique skin concerns and goals
  • Microchannels: creates tiny, near-painless openings (“channels”) in the skin
  • Precision Delivery: ensures that the active ingredients are delivered directly into the skin for deeper penetration and more effective absorption
  • Skin Benefits: improves skin texture, refreshes the complexion, and stimulates collagen production

How Long Does AquaGold Last?

AquaGold significantly improves the skin’s tone, texture, and quality over a 3- to 4-month period as the new collagen rejuvenates the skin. Most patients opt to have regular maintenance treatments every 3 to 6 months to sustain their results and keep their skin looking its best.

Is AquaGold Worth It?

AquaGold offers a highly customized and effective approach to skincare with minimal downtime and discomfort. It may be worth considering if you are seeking to treat the following and don’t mind waiting to see results:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Uneven skin texture
  • Acne scars
  • Skin laxity
  • Dullness
  • Large pores

3. Microdermabrasion

What Is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a popular treatment for improving the skin’s texture and quality by exfoliating and rejuvenating the outermost layer.

What Happens During Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion follows a two-step process:

  • Exfoliation: removes dead skin cells, debris, and impurities using a diamond-tipped wand
  • Vacuum Suction: collects the exfoliated skin cells, stimulates blood flow, and promotes the skin’s natural healing processes

How Long Does Microdermabrasion Last?

Microdermabrasion immediately brightens and enhances the skin, with results typically lasting a month. Regular treatments are recommended to preserve (and build upon) your results.

Is Microdermabrasion Worth It?

Microdermabrasion is an effective, non-invasive treatment that can address multiple skin concerns, including:

  • Uneven skin texture
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sun damage and discoloration
  • Acne scars
  • Clogged pores

However, it may not be suitable for patients with more severe skin concerns.

Your Skincare Journey

The “worthiness” of a medical spa treatment ultimately depends on your skincare goals and expectations. HydraFacial, AquaGold, and microdermabrasion significantly enhance and revitalize the skin—on their own or in concert with other treatments.
