A Hydrafacial is not just a facial, it is an advanced, non-laser, skin-resurfacing treatment for skin health. It improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, large or congested pores, hyperpigmentation and brown spots, and oily or acne-prone skin. This customized skin care treatment combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration, and antioxidant protection in one procedure, to improve the health and appearance of the skin, without discomfort or downtime.
“The Hydrafacial treatment has become very popular in our practice because it combines the benefits of a traditional facial, microdermabrasion and chemical peel into one relaxing treatment. It has absolutely no downtime and can improve the skin’s glow, hydration, and radiance in just 30 to 60 minutes,” says Dr. John Serrão of Serrão Rejuvenation Center. The Hydrafacial is safe to use on all skin types and can be customized to treat many skin conditions such as acne, pigment and aging skin with the addition of the many booster vials that the treatment has to offer.
What can I expect during a Hydrafacial treatment and does it hurt?
Our medical aestheticians, Angelica and Brianna, begin the treatment by prepping the skin without the use of pore-softening steam, which may exacerbate redness in some patients with more sensitive skin types. Instead, the treatment clears dead skin cells, loosens pores, and primes them for extraction by infusing the skin with glycolic acid, salicylic acid, and botanical extracts. Then, when it’s time for the extractions themselves, manual squeezing and lancing of the skin is bypassed for a unique vacuum-powered extraction of ‘gunk,’ which hurts far less than the poking and prodding that can lead to residual redness.
Many different maneuvers are done during the Hydrafacial treatment using a uniquely patented treatment wand that boasts a double-helixed vortex tip allowing the treatment to do lots of work on the skin. One chamber draws dead skin cells and dirt from the skin, replicating light extractions along the way. The other simultaneously pumps skin-soothing nutrients (like hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, and growth factors) into freshly cleared pathways for deeper penetration.
For all the sucking it does, the device treads surprisingly light and comfortably because liquid is being deposited with every swipe of the smooth, plastic-tipped wand. Our patients never feel the scraping and skin pulling that comes with diamond-tipped dermabrasion, the poking of microneedling, or the pinching of manual extractions. In other words, it’s a dream for those with sensitive skin who are looking for a deep clean that won’t lead to inflammation.
The HydraFacial treatment can range from a quick 30-minute Signature Treatment that includes all of the basics to a 90-minute Platinum Treatment that includes additional targeted boosters, LED light therapy, and a lymphatic drainage massage of the face and neck. The process is so gentle and relaxing that you will even wonder if it is doing anything at all, but when our aestheticians pull out the collection receptacle of the machine to show just how hard she and the multi-tasking tip had been at work, you will be astonished at all of the gray murky water dotted with floating particles for a view both satisfying (Yay! Look how clean my skin got, it really worked!) and gross (was all of that junk really in my skin?). Your skin will be glowing!
Who is a good candidate for a Hydrafacial?
This gentle treatment is designed for all skin types. Even patients with the most sensitive skin can easily tolerate the Hydrafacial treatment. We can custom-tailor serum treatments to be suitable and effective for the individual’s unique skin condition and type.
You will love the Hydrafacial and will see an immediate hydration and clarity in your skin without any redness or irritation. Sure, you will still need to keep your appointments for your scheduled Chemical Peels, Botox, and Dermal Fillers, but the Hydrafacial needs to become a part of your skincare regimen. Prices range from $149 to $279, which is a small price to pay for healthy and radiant skin that will look and feel beautiful!
