The HydraFacial is a nonsurgical treatment that dramatically improves the appearance and vitality of your complexion. Removing the “unnoticed” but ever-present buildup of fine dirt, debris, makeup residue and micro toxins gathered through repeated exposure to the elements, the HydraFacial leaves your face refreshe, revitalized and rejuvenated. Not merely looking better, but being better and healthier.

The HydraFacial is a relaxing treatment for patients itching to stave off the signs of age and sun damage in order to restore a more youthful facial appearance.


What is HydraFacial?

  • HydraFacial is a treatment that combines 3 distinct skin treatments into one
  • Exfoliation
  • Hydration
  • Cleansing

In a single treatment session, your HydraFacial will wash away the build up impurities that have left your skin and complexion dull, lackluster and less full of life than you’d like it to be. It’s also a gentle, very calming and relaxing procedure that typically has patients drifting into a nice sleep. Being much less harsh than most other skincare treatments, the HydraFacial also has no risk of producing discomfort, swelling or irritation.

How HydraFacial Works

The HydraFacial is a 5-part process that accomplishes 3 distinct improvements in 1 treatment session. It begins with exfoliation, wherein a light lactic acid is used to remove dead skin cells, then progresses onward to a peel of glycolic acid and salicylic acid to unclog pores and free the skin surface and pores from dirt, debris and any unhealthy build up. Next up is extraction, using a unique suction method to extract unwanted oil and dirt out from inside the pores. Then, enhancement, where a carefully calibrated dose of proprietary serums are used to tackle the very personal skin concerns and conditions you presented with. The exact serum to be used is chosen by us with your input; we want to help you accomplish exactly what you came in for. Finally, a layer of protection is added with an infusion of antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid, that boosts nutritional factors in the skin to protect it from future impurities.

What is the Recovery from BOTOX Injections?

BOTOX injections are usually quick and not painful and do not require any amount of downtime. Most patients experience a pinching sensation during the injection that quickly fades. There may be some slight bruising or redness around the injections, but these side effects usually disappear within a day or two.

HydraFacial candidacy

HydraFacial is suitable for patients of all ages, sexes and skin types. The procedure can be done multiple times, such as for a special occasion, or as a routine maintenance treatment. The smoothing, gentle procedure is personalized to your skin condition, to help tackle your own unique concerns. Prior to the procedure itself, your skin is carefully examined by our aesthetic experts in order to curate a treatment plan that includes the most beneficial nutrient-rich peels and serums.

HydraFacial recovery and downtime

HydraFacial patients can return to their regular work or social activities immediately after treatment. No downtime or recovery period is required after the HydraFacial. You should avoid long periods of direct sun exposure for 48 to 72 after the procedure as your new skin is likely to be very sensitive to burning. You’ll also notice the results of the treatment immediately after it is done.
