What is HydraFacial MD?

The HydraFacial’s unique system involves 4 steps that conclude with delivering rejuvenating serums using a specialized handheld tool. The treatment typically takes about 30 minutes and can be used for all skin types. The steps involved with a HydraFacial procedure include:
HydraFacial - MD Series Tower-w-LED

  • Exfoliation: Removes dead skin cells with a cleansing serum, exposing unhealthy skin
  • Peel: Loosens dirt and other impurities without causing redness or irritation
  • Extraction: Clears pores without discomfort using a patented suction tool
  • Hydration: Provides lasting protection and nourishment with a customized serum

The gentle, non-invasive procedure doesn’t require downtime and patients can immediately return to work or other normal daily activities after their treatments.

What Skin Conditions Does HydraFacial Treat?

HydraFacial’s versatility in addressing skin conditions is one of the things that sets it apart from other nonsurgical facial rejuvenation treatments. Another is that it’s effective for all skin types. A HydraFacial treatment can help if you’re concerned about:

  • Sun damage
  • Acne
  • Early signs of aging
  • Dehydrated skin
  • Discoloration
  • Uneven skin texture
  • Blackheads and whiteheads

HydraFacial uses a serum and delivery protocol to infuse the skin with:

Antioxidants: These help protect and repair skin cells by isolating damaging free radicals
Peptides: Smooth, youthful-looking skin is supported by collagen and elastin and these amino acids help boost their production
Hyaluronic acid: A common filler ingredient, HA is naturally produced by the body and is responsible for giving skin volume

When Will I See Results?

Results are noticeable almost immediately. You can expect to leave our practice with smooth, hydrated, radiant skin. This healthy glow will last for about a week. With monthly treatments, the skin actually becomes healthier because sun damage, aging, acne, and environmental toxins are addressed regularly.

Combining HydraFacial With Other Treatments

A HydraFacial procedure certainly produces impressive results on its own but combining it with other skin rejuvenation treatments can enhance the results. A HydraFacial can help prepare the skin for treatments such as:

Laser Skin Resurfacing
BOTOX® Cosmetic
Forever Young BBL™ Photofacial

When you come in for your initial consultation, we can discuss creating a customized treatment plan that is designed to address your specific skin concerns.
