What Is It?
The nationally-acclaimed HydraFacial MD® treatment is a non-invasive skin resurfacing procedure that cleanses, exfoliates and hydrates skin. It can be performed on the face, back, lips, neck and décolleté and hands and forearms and delivers instant results with no discomfort or downtime. It removes dead skin cells, and extracts impurities while it cleanses, exfoliates and moisturizes the skin. The HydraFacial facial includes a hydrating peel (with no downtime). Add on a peptide treatment, brightening treatment or growth factors.
This particular service is customized for acne-prone skin and includes cleansing, steaming, vortex and manual extractions as well as bacteria-killing blue light therapy.
How Does It Work?
The HydraFacial MD® is considered to be a breakthrough in aesthetic technology. It removes dead skin cells and extracts impurities from the skin while simultaneously bathing the newly revealed skin using Vortex Technology™ to cleanse, exfoliate, extract and hydrate. The resurfacing procedure is soothing, moisturizing, non-irritating and provides immediate results.
The HydraFacial MD® evolved from its “older cousin,” microdermabrasian, which is another non-surgical process that removes the skin’s outer layer by using a stream of micro-crystals blasted onto the surface on the skin. The difference is that the HydraFacial doesn’t use crystals in the exfoliation process. Instead, it uses a specially-shaped spiral tip which exfoliates and removes impurities, similar to manual extractions. It also applies various serums that cleanse, hydrate, and infuse antioxidants into the skin.
How Many Sessions Are Recommended?
Many people report seeing visible skin refinement and a more even, radiant skin tone after just one treatment. The smooth skin tone and hydration may last five to seven days. We recommend monthly HydraFacial MD® treatments to maintain results.
