Hydrafacial

A hydrafacial is one of the most powerful, non-invasive skin resurfacing treatments available today. It combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration and antioxidant protection that removes dead skin cells and impurities, while simultaneously delivering moisturizing serums into the skin.

What To Expect

01. Consultation

The treatment is a 3-step-process that deep cleans, exfoliates, and plumps the skin by infusing it with targeted serums. With ongoing treatments, you will notice improved hydration, minimized dark spots, and a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

02. Preparation

The day of your appointment a full consultation will be provided. If you have any special health considerations, allergies, pregnant, etc., be sure to notify us when you make your appointment. 

Please AVOID:

  • Topical prescriptive medications for 48hrs (Retin-A, Tazorac, Dierin, EpiDuo, Ziana).
  • Use of Isotretinoin for 6 months (Sotret, Claravis, Amnesteem, and Accutane).
  • Any exfoliating treatment(s) (glycolic, enzymes) to the area of treatment for 48 hrs.
  • Any Medium/Deep chemical resurfacing and laser treatments for 1 month.
  • Refrain from waxing and use of depilatories for 48hrs.
  • Use of OTC acne medications (Benzoyl Peroxide, Salicylic) for 48hrs.
  • Sun tanning or tanning creams/sprays for at least 72hrs.
  • Post injections (Dysport, Juvederm) wait at least two weeks. Botox at least five days.
  • For Gentlemen’s Hydrafacial treatment shaving is not recommended on the day of treatment. If you choose to shave, please shave at least 3-4 hours before your treatment.
  • If you are prone to cold sores, Hydrafacial may cause a breakout; ask your doctor for a prophylactic treatment such as Valtrex. Please use medication two days before, during and two days after.

03. Procedure

Step 1. Cleanse & Peel | Uncover a new layer of skin with gentle exfoliation & relaxing resurfacing.
Step 2. Extract & Hydrate | Remove debris from pores with painless suction. Nourish with intense moisture that quenches your skin.
Step 1. Fuse & Protect | Saturate the skin’s surface with antioxidants & peptides to maximize your glow.

04. After-care

Makeup can be applied post-treatment. For best results leave the face clear until the following morning. Avoid sunbathing for at least 48hrs, (although, we recommend this indefinitely) to prevent UV rays from damaging your skin which slows down the benefits of Hydrafacial. Patients who absolutely cannot avoid sun exposure should use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher to maintain your improved skin.

Injections can be resumed in 24hrs.
Waxing and depilatories can be resumed in 48hrs.
Avoid heat (hot showers, sauna, and intense cardio) for 24hrs.
Topical prescriptive medications can be resumed in 48hrs.
OTC acne medications may be resumed in 48hrs.
