What is a HydroFacial™?
HydroFacial is an advanced, non-invasive treatment which uses a medical-grade hydrodermabrasion device to carry out a three-part-regimen of — cleansing + exfoliation, extraction + hydration, infusion + protection. It delivers critically timed, exfoliation-to-serum treatment technology with optimal-depth delivery for immediate and long lasting results. If you are only expecting a “facial” you’ll be overwhelmed by the therapy results!
On the most basic level, HydroFacial removes dead skin cells, cleans pores, and smooths, while simultaneously bathing new skin in a deeply hydrating, antioxidant and peptide rich solution applied through a micro jet infusion system. In this regard it is essentially a facial, peel, microdermabrasion and hydrating mask in one.
Similar to microdermabrasion, hydrodermabrasion relies on an abrasive tip to dislodge dead skin cells, but combines this with vacuum suction, and various solutions to soften sebum and gently exfoliate and polish the skin, while stimulating blood flow and lymphatic drainage with each pass. With 9 different hydroderm surfaces to choose from, a range of solutions, and the ability to adjust the suction power, the treatment can be fully customized to your needs, skin type, and desired outcome.
Next, salicylic acid, vacuum suction, and a hydro-extraction tip with a unique spiral design combine to create a vortex action to easily extract sebum, blackheads and impurities, deeply cleansing the skin and flushing away impurities — no squeezing or pressing required. The result? An incredibly deep cleanse, unlike anything you’ve experienced before, and a thorough exfoliation without any pinching, pulling or pain.
After the skin is cleansed, extracted and resurfaced, the treatment concludes with serum infusion therapy. This entails the liberal application of a powerful serum rich in antioxidants, peptides and hyaluronic acid, designed to hydrate, brighten, plump, and clear complexion, while improving the signs of aging. The hydro-tips are able to deliver these therapeutic ingredients deep into the skin, resulting in significantly higher levels of absorption.
HydroFacial is effective in targeting a range of common skin concerns including: the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, skin texture, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, congested skin, enlarged pores and both oily and dehydrated skin. This extraordinary treatment attacks the long term inflammation that damages and ravages skin health and appearance delivering results you can see and feel.
HydroFacial provides instant gratification with zero downtime, and its radiance-imparting properties really deliver that “extra glow”! This makes it the ideal treatment not only as a general monthly procedure to promote the health of your skin, but also the perfect treatment before a big event or special occasion.
What sets is a HydroFacial™ apart from other hydrodermabrasion treatments?
HydroFacial offers the addition of Oxygen Infusion, Radiofrequency Therapy, and Low-Frequency Sonophoresis (LFS) to dramatically enhance the many benefits of this unique and incredibly effective treatment. Oxygen Infusion and either Radiofrequency Therapy or LFS are included in the Platinum HydroFacial (as well as Light Therapy), but can be added on to both the Signature and Deluxe HydroFacial services.
Your treatment can be tailored further with added-on super serums to address specific skin concerns, including:
• Brite+ – addresses pigmentation minimizing the appearance of discoloration and brightening tone for an enhanced glow
• Dermbuilder – anti-aging, recharges skin while softening fine lines and wrinkles
• Growth Factor – helps to speed up skin repair, restoring skin health and vitality.
How It Works
HydroFacial’s multi-step treatment uses specialized technology and solutions to cleanse, extract, hydrate and protect. HydroFacial super serums combine nourishing ingredients that create an instantly gratifying glowing in just four steps.
The award-winning HydroFacial System merges invigorating spa therapies with advanced medical technology to enhance skin health. Only HydroFacial uses patented Spiral-Fusion technology to cleanse, extract and hydrate.
HYDRO – DERMABRASION
The process of Hydrodermabrasion starts with applying a peeling or basic saline solution to the skin. After this, the action of exfoliation begins, but the solution that you applied prior to treatment prevents irritation. This makes the exfoliation safe and appropriate for all skin types, including sensitive skin. Hydro Peel removes blackheads and comedones, cleans pores, and smoothes skin.
Oxygen infusion delivers 98% pure oxygen infused with nutrients and antioxdiants to help your skin cells thrive and is the ideal delivery method for the HydroFacial Boosters. The properties of the booster infused with oxygen molecules reach deeper into the skin, increasing absorption, and thus dramatically enhancing the benefits and nourishment. From this procedure, the skin acquires the ability turn over faster, and to produce more collagen, thus yielding taut, elastic skin reducing the visible signs of aging. An Oxygen Infusion treatment will make you skin look younger, healthier, brighter, and fresher.
LOW FREQUENCY SONOPHORESIS
Low-frequency sonophoresis (LFS) uses noninvasive ultrasound energy to penetrate deep below the surface of the skin promoting: cellular renewal and repair, muscle toning, increased blood circulation and lymphatic drainage, combating puffiness and swelling, and improving the penetration of topical skin care products (40x better). Unlike laser treatments that target the outer layers of skin, LFS bypasses the skin’s surface delivering collagen stimulating ultrasound energy to the deepest layers. Once the dermis begins producing new collagen, sagging facial and neck skin lifts and starts to look younger and tighter.
RADIO – FREQUENCY SKIN TIGHTENING
Radiofrequency therapy is a highly effective procedure that can smooth, tighten and contour skin for an overall younger-looking appearance. It works best against loose and sagging skin, lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, scars and stretch marks. Soften lines around the mouth, eyes, forehead and improve definition under the jawline and chin. Radiofrequency is pain-free and helps achieve rejuvenating effects on the face.
NEED A BOOST?
Tailor your treatment with award-winning super serums to address specific skin concerns.
One of our award winning aestheticians will perform your HydroFacial treatment in the comfort of our office. Each treatment is approximately 45 minutes.
The HydroFacial device uses four actions that contribute to the resurfacing of the skin; cleansing and physical exfoliation from water pressure and a textured tip, chemical exfoliation from acids such as glycolic and salicylic, suction to lift dead skin cells off the surface, and serum fusion.
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 HydroFacial 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 HydroFacial delivers an impressive amount of plumping hydration to the skin when compared to a more traditional microdermabrasion treatment.
In addition to this, you can work with your skincare professional to further customize your HydroFacial by incorporating boosters or add-ons targeting your specific skin concerns.
To prepare, we ask you not to take the referenced medications and refrain from some lifestyle activities, including:
• Do not exfoliate for at least two days prior
• Stay out of direct sun light, avoid sun tanning or tanning creams/sprays for at least three days prior
• Do not receive Medium / Deep chemical resurfacing or laser treatments for 1 month
• Do not wax or receive laser hair removal for at least two days
• Do not use oral acne medications for at least two days
Prior to the procedure, you will have a comprehensive consultation with your esthetician. During this consult, your esthetician will recommend treatments that will improve the health of your skin.
The HydroFacial itself includes the following steps: cleansing and exfoliation, chemical peel, extractions, and infusion of serums. All four steps are administered through various attachments on the HydroFacial 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 generally offered in 30, 60, and 90 minute sessions, making them easy to work into any schedule.
After a HydroFacial 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 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.
HydroFacial is a great option for anyone desiring smoother, deeply hydrated skin with a quick turnaround. The service 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 microdermabrasion, medical grade peels or laser treatments.
It is generally recommended to receive a Hydrofacial once a month. As there is no downtime associated with the treatment, it can be administered anytime during the year.
Even though HydroFacials are relatively gentle, there are certain skin concerns such as chronic rosacea, severe acne, active rash, sunburn 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. HydroFacials 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.
The HydroFacial can be performed the very same day as injectables and non-ablative light and laser treatments. It can also incredibly beneficial one week post-Fraxel, as it speeds up the shedding process that resurfacing devices inevitably induce while also deeply hydrating the skin.
Our skincare professional may choose specific treatment serums and/or customize the treatment for your unique skin conditions and needs.
A HydroFacial is a great option for anyone desiring smoother, deeply hydrated skin with a quick turnaround. It is generally recommended to receive a Hydrofacial once a month, however, the frequency of treatment will depend upon the current status of your skin, and your skin related goals.

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.
HydroFacial uses HydroDermabrasion as the exfoliating medium. HydroDermabrasion combines water and oxygen to create a vortex system. At high velocity, this water and oxygen removes dead skin, encourages circulation (which in turns encourages collagen and elastin production), while banishing blackheads, dark circles and even scaring.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 HydroFacial by incorporating add-ons or boosters targeting your specific skin concerns.
HydroDermabrasion is the holy grail or gold standard for exfoliation, and much more suitable to all skin types.
