A HydraFacial is one of the most powerful, non-invasive skin resurfacing treatments provided today. It combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration and antioxidant protection that removes dead skin cells and impurities, while at the same time delivering moisturizing serums right into the skin. The HydraFacial treatment itself is fast and effective, just taking about 30 minutes to complete. In addition, the results are immediately visible, and there is no recovery time required.
Unlike microdermabrasion, which blasts the skin's surface with aluminum oxide crystals, the HydraFacial wand vacuums pores and then infuses the skin with hydrating serums. This gentle process is what makes HydraFacials so calming and rejuvenating.

HydraFacial Procedure Steps
1. Cleansing & Exfoliation
The first step is cleansing and exfoliation. Using a vortex cleansing and hydra peel tip, your aesthetician will use the HydraFacial wand to gently cleanse and exfoliate the skin. This removes dead skin cells and sebum while gently opening your pores. Some individuals describe it as having a rotating electric toothbrush gently pressed to your skin.
2. Chemical Peel
Next, your aesthetician will change the tip of the wand to deliver a light chemical peel. Unlike other chemical peels that are frequently unpleasant or painful and leave your skin red for hours or days, HydraFacials use a non-irritating mix of salicylic and glycolic acids for a mild yet effective peel. The purpose of this step is to loosen deep pore debris.
The next step is extraction. This is where the device will use strong, painless vortex vacuum suction to extract blackheads and impurities from your pores. These impurities collect in a cup to be disposed of.
4. Hydrating Serum
And lastly, your aesthetician will use the HydraFacial wand to apply a soothing proprietary antioxidative and hydrating serum with peptides and other beneficial nutrients. This helps to purify, revitalize, and hydrate the skin.
