Instant Skin Improvement with Painless HydraFacial Treatment

The HydraFacial treatment is a pain-and-irritation-free procedure. HydraFacial provides immediate skin improvement results and is incredibly safe for almost all patients. This makes it a great way to begin cosmetic skin procedures for individuals who might be a bit skittish about the field. HydraFacial treatment offers a gentle and immediate improvement to overall skin tone and evenness. If you already use an at-home skincare regimen but have yet to see the results you’re hoping for, HydraFacial might be for you.

What is HydraFacial Treatment?

HydraFacial treatment is a cosmetic procedure that works for any skin type. A treatment can last from 30 to 60 minutes and is broken up into four stages:

  • Cleansing & Exfoliation
  • Peel
  • Pore Extraction
  • Serum Infusing

Even though HydraFacial is a medical procedure, a lot of patients who experience it say it is comparable to a soothing spa treatment. Your cosmetic specialist administers the procedure with the HydraFacial wand. The wand is a device that is about the size of an electric toothbrush.

During the Cleansing and Exfoliating stage, the HydraFacial wand removes dead skin cells and grime from the surface of your face. If your skin is less sensitive, you can opt for a more abrasive tip to be used on the HydraFacial wand. Your cosmetic specialist will discuss this option with you and make recommendations based on observing your skin.

During the Peel stage, a concentrated mixture of glycolic acid and salicylic acid is applied to the face using the wand. There’s nothing scary about this — these are the same chemicals in any at-home skin peels. When the peel is removed, it has a slight tingling sensation.

If you’ve ever had a manual pore extraction performed at a spa, you know how painful that process can be. However, the Pore Extraction phase of a HydraFacial Treatment is completely painless. The HydraFacial wand acts as a tiny vacuum cleaner, which sucks the buildup out of your pores. The end result is that your pores are clear and open, and your skin can breathe again.

The Serum Infusing stage of a HydraFacial treatment allows for a lot of customization, based on your personal skin improvement goals. The range of serums that can infuse the skin can target various skin issues. For example, the serums can treat fine lines, deeper lines, acne or dark spots. The HydraFacial serums can also contain skin-protecting antioxidants, peptides to boost collagen and other skin-care improvement treatments.

HydraFacial Treatment Cost?

A HydraFacial treatment starts at around $199 and can go up from there depending on any upgrades or companion treatments that you purchase.

HydraFacial provides immediate skin improvement results, and the procedure is even safe for pregnant or breastfeeding clients. If you’re ready to try a HydraFacial Treatment for the first time, contact our office to schedule an appointment!
