You want to look your best. But the toll of your stressful life, especially amid the ongoing pandemic, is making you feel like your facial skin has seen better days. You may look tired with dull skin. That never makes you feel your most confident.
The solution to instantly glowing skin is a HydraFacial®. In as little as 30 minutes, this treatment can leave you looking more youthful and refreshed, as though you’ve just returned from a great vacation.

What is a HydraFacial?
A HydraFacial is a three-step process, using the HydraFacial wand. It deep cleans, exfoliates, and hydrates your skin. Because of the deep cleaning and exfoliating part of the process — also called microdermabrasion — it removes the dead skin layers from the surface of your skin. These dead skin layers are part of what makes your skin look dull.
But the HydraFacial takes this process one step further. It delivers a variety of treatment serums in the final step, which makes your skin really glow and look refreshed.
What a HydraFacial can do if you’re acne-prone
You should always let us know if you have sensitive skin, but in general, a HydraFacial can help to clear up your skin. If you’re prone to hormonal breakouts or are unlucky enough to get adult acne later in life, a HydraFacial can often clear it up.
The microdermabrasion part of the process helps relieve acne and acne scars. It can purge impurities from your skin and get rid of excess sebum (oil) that leads to acne.
Benefits of HydraFacial for anti-aging
One of the best benefits of the HydraFacial may be its anti-aging properties. One small study found that women had reduced signs of aging, such as decreased hyperpigmentation, smaller pores, and decreased fine lines.
The study compared women ages 34-65 who received treatment serums alone with those who received treatment serums plus microdermabrasion. Those who received treatment serums plus microdermabrasion had fewer fine lines, plumper skin, and a more even skin tone.
Why the HydraFacial is so popular
The HydraFacial is really getting attention because it produces such immediate, glowing results. According to the company that produces the HydraFacial, one person gets the procedure every 15 seconds in the United States and in 80 countries around the world.
The HydraFacial tip exfoliates your skin, which makes it more effective than dermabrasion alone. The HydraFacial tool not only cleanses and exfoliates your skin but also extracts blackheads and delivers treatment serums.
We customize the treatment serum you receive to your specific skin concerns, whether your concerns are anti-aging or to even out your skin tone, or both.
For best results, you should get a HydraFacial on a regular basis, about once a month. Fortunately, the procedure is painless and requires no downtime for recovery.
Although the HydraFacial can make your skin look fabulous, it’s not the right option for everyone. If you have rosacea, an active rash, a sunburn, or are pregnant, we may advise you to try other facial procedures.
