Frequently Asked Questions

What is a HydraFacial?

An important step in any effective skincare treatment involves resurfacing the top layer of skin. One commonly known resurfacing procedure, microdermabrasion, uses micro-crystals to mechanically exfoliate the skin. While this method is very effective, it can also be irritating for acne-prone or sensitive skin types.

 

To address these concerns, HydraFacial was born, using water as the exfoliating medium. This multi-step treatment uses a patented device to cleanse, exfoliate, and extract dead skin cells while bathing the skin in serums packed with rich hydrating ingredients, antioxidants, and peptides. In addition to this, you can work with your skincare professional to further customize your HydraFacial by incorporating add-ons or boosters targeting your specific skin concerns.

With high concentrations of potent ingredients, SkinCeuticals professional products can also be incorporated to complement and enhance the HydraFacial experience. The dermatologist-tested SkinCeuticals + HydraFacial Integrated Treatment amplifies the effects of the procedure by infusing the benefits of SkinCeuticals vitamin C serums, corrective solutions, and broad spectrum sunscreens. The treatment delivers additional hydration with minimized visible redness while providing improvement in the appearance of skin firmness, texture, and radiance.

Who is a good candidate for a HydraFacial treatment?

HydraFacials can be performed on all skin types, including very sensitive skin. What is unique about this treatment is that it is highly customizable. Your skincare professional will work with you to understand your unique skin concerns, and will recommend a personalized treatment for you. It should be noted, however, that the HydraFacial is on the gentler side of the facial treatment spectrum. Clients requiring deeper resurfacing may achieve greater results from more intense treatments such as medical grade peels or laser treatments.

 

Even though HydraFacials are relatively gentle, there are certain skin concerns such as chronic rosacea and severe acne that preclude receiving any treatment. As always, it is best to consult with your skincare professional to discuss any conditions or allergies prior to booking a session. HydraFacials should also be avoided by individuals with a contact allergy to shellfish, as it is an ingredient found in one of the primary steps of the treatment.

 

*Clinical studies have not been preformed to support the use of HydraFacial treatments during pregnancy or breastfeeding. 

How does a HydraFacial work?

The HydraFacial device uses three actions that contribute to the resurfacing of the skin; physical exfoliation from water pressure and a textured tip, chemical exfoliation from acids such as glycolic and salicylic, and suction to lift dead skin cells off the surface.

 

A basic treatment starts with a water-based solution being blasted onto the skin to break up the topmost layer of dead skin cells. Using the spiral suction tip of the HydraFacial device, the dead skin cells and surface debris are lifted away, providing a gentler method of extraction. Next, a chemical peel solution is delivered in the same way, increasing the depth of exfoliation. The final steps involve the same pressurized delivery of treatment serums customized to the needs of the skin. Because all steps are delivered in a hydrating, water-based solution, the HydraFacial delivers an impressive amount of plumping hydration to the skin when compared to a more traditional microdermabrasion treatment.

Some HydraFacial treatments go a step further with the addition of aesthetic modalities such as microcurrent or LED light therapy. .

What will I experience during a HydraFacial?

The HydraFacial follows the same steps of a basic medical facial: cleansing and exfoliation, chemical peel, extractions, and infusion of serums. All four steps are administered through various attachments on the HydraFacial device. The suction and movement of the device boosts lymphatic drainage and improves circulation in the skin. These non-invasive treatments are painless and are offered in 30, 45, and 60 minute sessions, making them easy to work into any schedule.

After a HydraFacial treatment, you will notice immediate results. Skin will feel smoother, softer, and more hydrated as a result of the exfoliating acids and hydrating ingredients used. You may also notice a slight reduction in puffiness due to the lymphatic drainage. The use of nutrient-rich serums may also temporarily plump up fine lines and wrinkles, lessening their appearance.

When should I get a HydraFacial?

A HydraFacial is a great option for anyone desiring smoother, deeply hydrated skin with a quick turnaround. It is generally recommended to receive a Hydrafacial once a month. As there is no downtime associated with the treatment, it can be administered anytime during the year.

 

Please wait 5-7 days after receiving Botox, 7-10 days after receiving Filler, 30 days after receiving any Chemical Peel, and 5-7 days after receiving any facial waxing services. You may receiving a HydraFacial prior to any Botox and/or Filler. Some guests have even said that they feel their HydraFacial treatment enhanced their results of their aesthetic treatments.

What can I expect after a HydraFacial?

You will likely see results immediately after treatment, and your skin may feel smooth and hydrated for one to four weeks with appropriate at home care to maintain treatments. Skin is more susceptible to sunburn/sun damage. Avoid access sun exposure and use a minimum of SPF 40 sunscreen. 

Skin may experience temporary irritation, tightness, or redness. These are al normal reactions that typically resolve within less then 72 hours depending on skin sensitivity. You may experience stinging and tingling in the treatment area. These sensations generally subside within a few hours.
