How does a Hydrafacial work?

Unlike a standard facial, a Hydrafacial is performed with a specialized device, not by hand. The device has the ability to deeply cleanse the skin, removing all impurities from blocked pores, dead skin cells on the surface, and any environmental debris. The device works like a custom skin vacuum, opening the pores and sweeping away impurities, and saturating the skin with nourishing serums.

What can a Hydrafacial treat?

A regular Hydrafacial can work wonders on your skin and can treat a range of unwanted skin conditions:

  • Dry, unevenly textured skin
  • Oily, blemish-prone skin
  • Unevenly toned skin
  • Fine lines, wrinkles
  • Age spots
  • Blackheads and other blemishes
  • Enlarged pores
  • Dull, lackluster skin

Hydrafacial – a three-step process

A Hydrafacial has three steps, each of which was developed to produce remarkable results in skin health and glow:

  • Cleanse: Your skin will be deeply cleansed, and a gentle peel applied to remove dead skin cells and reveal healthy, fresh cells.
  • Extraction: The impurities lodged in your pores are gently extracted with a specialized vacuum device that is gentle, does not involve any pulling or pinching, and is painless.
  • Hydrate and nourish: The skin is infused with intense serums specially selected for your skin to leave it plump, nourished, and glowing.

What are the benefits of a regular Hydrafacial?

A Hydrafacial is one of the most effective facials available and can significantly enhance your skin quality and glow. The benefits include:

  • Good for all skin types.
  • No downtime.
  • Fast, effective facial that can be performed during your lunch hour or other convenient time.
  • Replenishes moisture.
  • Extracts all impurities.
  • Deeply cleanses pores.
  • Nourishing serums are infused into the skin.
  • Leaves you with a camera-ready glow.

What is a Hydrafacial like to experience?

You will be resting comfortably during your procedure, which involves painless extractions. The sensation is a gentle suction that is not unpleasant, with no pulling or poking, and does not cause irritation. Once complete, your skin may be slightly reddened but is glowing with health. The overall experience is generally pleasant.

What is the recovery?

There is virtually no recovery time after a Hydrafacial – just go back to your regular day, looking your best.

Who is a candidate for a Hydrafacial?

As a Hydrafacial is safe for all skin types, almost everyone is a good candidate for a regular treatment. The ideal client is any person who wants to keep their facial skin healthy, hydrated, deeply clean, nourished, and ultra-hydrated.

Your specialized serums: What’s right for you?

The Hydrafacial Booster Serums are applied following cleansing and exfoliation. They are chosen to match your skin condition and needs:

Brightening serum

For those who have skin pigmentation issues, this serum can work wonders on discoloration while smoothing lines and wrinkles.

Calming serum

If your skin is easily inflamed, red, or dry, this serum calms and replenishes the skin barrier while detoxifying.

Hydrating serum

Dry skin will appreciate this ultra-hydrating serum, which is an ideal choice to reduce the signs of aging skin, sun spots, age spots, and other flaws.

Restoring and firming serum

If your skin appears lax and tired, this serum reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and enhances tone and firmness.

Smoothing and refining serum

This serum triggers faster skin cell turnover while reducing fine lines and wrinkles, enhancing facial skin firmness and volume, and helping with uneven skin tone and hyperpigmentation.
