Why we love HydraFacial™

The HydraFacial™ offers a deep cleansing, extraction and exfoliation of the skin that isn’t achievable at home, and when performed regularly, keeps your skin clean and healthy.
Often suggested as a complementary treatment, the HydraFacial™ also stands-alone as a great low-impact, zero downtime option that shows instant glowing skin after only a 30 minute treatment (with the option of the more advanced 50 minute HydraFacial™). We often call the HydraFacial™ a skin maintenance treatment, to be performed as often as monthly, as this keeps the epidermis (uppermost layer of the skin) clean, healthy and free from congestion.

The HydraFacial™ works to treat:

  • Wrinkles, fine lines, and dehydrated skin
  • Uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage
  • Enlarged pores, congested pores, acne or oily-prone skin

Am I a Candidate? 

The great news is that absolutely everyone can benefit from a HydraFacial, but if you do have specific skin conditions such as rosacea or highly-sensitive skin, this is something that is important to disclose as we can customize this treatment to your skin.
While a Hydrafacial provides overall benefits to the skin, such as to treat acne, wrinkles, dull skin and texture, we do have other treatments available that are designed to specifically target these concerns.
Treatments such as Potenza RF Microneedling, BBL Forever Clear and ProFractional Laser are ideal for acne and acne scarring. If the signs of aging and dull skin are your concerns, treatments such as Wrinkle Relaxing Injections, Halo Hybrid Fractional Laser and BBL Forever Young are ideal for reducing lines and wrinkles, clearing complexion, and boosting collagen and elastin, for fresh, firm and flawless skin.


How is it performed? 

The HydraFacial is a relaxing medispa experience, where you will be comfortable lying down, with your head resting on a pillow the entire time. Your medical aesthetician will start by cleansing your face, and applying some serums to help prepare your skin for your HydraFacial.
They will then proceed by applying the HydraFacial pen to your skin, which will have a very mild suction sensation on your skin. This process works to cleanse, exfoliate and extract congestion, to then infuse your skin with antioxidant serums.

How HydraFacials works

Your HydraFacial™ provides fresher, cleaner, glowing skin by combining 3 treatments in 1:

  • The exfoliation and skin resurfacing process of microdermabrasion
  • The renewed skin of a chemical peel
  • Extractions and hydration similar to a deep-cleansing skin facial treatment

The HydraFacial™ treatment works to improve red, dry, irritated skin by using a combination of cleansing, exfoliation, and extraction, to then utilize the HydraFacial’s patented approach of infusing antioxidant and hydrating serums into the skin helps to diminish the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and oily skin.
The Features of the HydraFacial™ Treatment:

  • Vortex™ Exfoliation – Exfoliating the skin is essential in maintaining its health. The HydroPeel innovative tip utilizes its abrasive, multiple edges in order to exfoliate the skin thoroughly many times over to achieve better skin resurfacing minus the irritation, discomfort, and redness.
  • Vortex™ Extraction – Through the “vortex” suction head the works by circulating liquid with suction. This process easily removes and eliminates blackheads, sebum, and whiteheads for painless and instantaneous extractions.
  • Vortex™ Peel – The unique HydroPeel tip works to hydrate the skin effectively using a nutrient-rich, Glycolic Acid that deeply penetrates the pores of the skin to dissolve away impurities while working to soften the skin.
  • Antioxidant Vortex™ Fusion – The special spiral tip uses a patented approach for using customized serums filled with antioxidants to infuse into the skin. The serums help to plump and hydrate the skin which diminishes the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and oily skin.



What to Expect

The HydraFacial™ is a very relaxing, quick and enjoyable treatment where you can almost feel your skin rejuvenating as the HydraFacial™ is performed! You will spend the treatment relaxing on a treatment bed as the medical aesthetician cleanses, exfoliates and works the HydraFacial™ machine on your face. The treatment is painless, and feels like a tiny vacuum hose is being gently moved across your skin, clearing away dirt, oil, dead skin cells, and other impurities.
Once complete, your skin will have an instant and recognizable glow and you can return to your day with no downtime – just brighter, cleaner skin!


Complementary Treatments

If you are looking for more relaxing, no-downtime facial treatments that leave your skin clean, glowing and feeling fresh, our Medical-Grade Chemical Peels address a range of skin conditions and can be highly customized to your skin. To treat more severe cases of certain conditions, such as acne, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage, BBL Forever Young and BBL Forever Clear are great complementary treatments.
For other treatments beyond cleaning and maintaining your skin with regular HydraFacial™, we offer a number of skin and injectable treatments for a number of skin concerns and conditions, including Winkle Relaxing Treatments, Dermal Fillers and laser resurfacing such as Halo Hybrid Fractional Laser. We offer free consultations with our medical aesthetic specialists who can suggest a range of treatments to reach your skin goals.
