HydraFacial is a non-laser skin resurfacing treatment that combines exfoliation, extraction, hydration and antioxidant protection simultaneously. The first step in the treatment process entails gently cleansing the skin and exfoliating the outermost layer of the skin to remove dead skin cells. The second step involves the use of an acid peel to help loosen deep pore debris and dirt. The third step involves the use of a strong vacuum suction to remove blackheads and other impurities in the skin. The final step involves the application of vortex fusion to deliver a pro-antioxidant formula with potent peptides and hyaluronic acid into the skin to detoxify the treated area.

Ideal candidates want to revive and refresh the appearance of the skin. Individuals suffering from hyperpigmentation, enlarged and congested pores, excessively oily skin, acne-prone skin or fine lines and wrinkles are good candidates. This treatment can be safely and effectively used for any skin type and tone including those with darker skin tones or issues related to sensitive skin.

The typical cost for HydraFacial ranges from $150-$500 depending on surgical facility fees, the surgeon’s level of expertise, the geographic location of the procedure and if other procedures are performed at the same time.

The procedure restores the skin structure and nourishes the skin to give a brighter and healthier appearance. There will be no occurrence of peeling, flaking, swelling, bruising or redness of the treated area after the procedure. The smooth and well-hydrated look of the skin lasts for a period of 1-2 weeks. It is generally recommended that patients undergo a HydraFacial treatment each month to achieve long lasting results.
