Hydrafacial: Why It’s Now the #1 Treatment

Prepare to discover your new favorite treatment: the HydraFacial!

Utilizing the power of medical-grade hydradermabrasion, this aesthetic device allows you to improve the look and feel of your skin during a facial that doesn’t require any abrasive microdermabrasion. But don’t let this gentler approach fool you! It’s still an incredibly effective option that more people than ever are turning to to help them get the skin they’ve always dreamed of.

Ready to learn more about what makes it the #1 treatment? Let’s dive in.

What is a HydraFacial?

By now you know this treatment involves medical-grade hydradermabrasion, but there’s a lot more to it than that. 

First, it’s important to note the HydraFacial is a patented device and there’s nothing else quite like it. Included in this one system is the ability to offer cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, and hydration to the skin simultaneously. 

As for exactly how it works? Let’s talk about that next. 

  • Firstly, the HydraFacial machine utilizes water to exfoliate and remove your dead skin cells.
  • Next, the treatment loosens dirt and grime from within the pores.
  • Then, the machine uses its swirling vortex device (a cyclical flushing water motion) to flush out the loosened dirt and grime
  • Finally, your facialist infuses your skin with high-quality serums tailored to your unique skin goals

The result? Clearer, cleaner, smoother skin without abrasive or uncomfortable treatments.

Here’s how HydraFacial themselves break down the process into three key steps:


Uncover a new layer of skin with gentle exfoliation and relaxing resurfacing.


Remove debris from pores with painless suction. Nourish with intense moisturizers that quench skin.


Saturate the skin’s surface with antioxidants and peptides to maximize your glow.”

What is an Oxygen HydraFacial?

The HydraFacial treatment itself can be incredibly effective. But did you know we also offer Oxygen HydraFacials? This treatment utilizes the power of hyperbaric oxygen to deliver even more powerful results. 

This revolutionary spa service promotes the relaxation and pampering aspects of the facial while delivering dramatic instant results with no down time. The serums delivered during the facial, in conjunction with oxygen, visibly plump and hydrate the skin to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, giving a smoother, healthy glow.

There you have it! The basics of HydraFacial and Oxygen HydraFacial and how they work. But we know you have even more questions about this magical treatment, so let’s talk about those next.

What are the benefits?

There are all kinds of benefits to receiving a HydraFacial. Not only is it minimally invasive and comfortable, it’s known for being incredibly effective. Similarly, it can be used to treat a wide variety of skin concerns which makes it an ideal solution for many people. Similarly, treatments are quick and cost-effective, making them a realistic option for many people searching for the best solution to improve and maintain their skin. 

How long do results last?

Most of our clients see visible results from their HydraFacial for four to six weeks following their treatment. With that in mind, scheduling HydraFacial treatments on a monthly basis is recommended for most people. 

(Along with regular HydraFacials, many of our clients implement dermal fillers into their skincare maintenance routine. Are you curious about this option and wondering if it’s right for you? Visit this post next to get answers to your top questions about Juvederm Dermal Filler)

What makes a HydraFacial better than a regular facial?

Traditional facials can be effective for many people, but they aren’t necessarily the best one available. If you’ve ever had a traditional facial, you may have had extractions performed on your skin to remove blackheads and debris in your pores. When these are done by a trained professional, they should not cause damage to the skin, but they can still be uncomfortable.

One of the primary benefits of a HydraFacial is that it is able to perform these extractions in a less invasive and uncomfortable way that’s just as, if not more, effective than traditional extractions.

What should I do after my treatment?

We have a whole post outlining our Oxygen HydraFacial treatments here.

Included in that post are aftercare instructions and information, including:

“Unlike other facials that require a fair amount of planning and downtime, the HydraFacial requires none. We only suggest avoiding exfoliation and heat exposure from hot showers, intense exercise, or sunshine for 24-48 hours afterward.”

Can I customize my treatment?

Now for another impressive benefit of this treatment: it’s highly customizable! That means, depending on your unique skin and concerns, your technician is able to personalize your treatment. For example, that could mean changing the level of exfoliation used on your skin or using acids at different durations during the cleanse and peel step.

Is a HydraFacial painful?

We never have our clients tell us this treatment is painful! During the exfoliation process, you might feel a slightly more uncomfortable sensation that many people liken to gentle sandpaper or a cat licking your face. However, most patients report the entire process is painful and they’re able to relax throughout. 

Who is it right for?

One of the wonderful things about this treatment is that it suits virtually every common skin concern you can think of. 

The technology was built to suit a variety of skincare needs, including:

  • Treating fine lines and wrinkles 
  • Improving elasticity and firmness
  • Evening skin tone
  • Boosting skin vibrancy
  • Improving skin texture
  • Treating brown spots
  • Treating enlarged pores
  • Improving oily and clogged pores
