Hydrafacial MD Q & A

What is a HydraFacial®?

The HydraFacial® is an innovative facial treatment that can treat every skin type. Many skin resurfacing methods dry and irritate the skin. Instead, HydraFacial hydrates skin while removing impurities and dead skin cells. Each 30-minute procedure can noticeably improve skin issues including:

  • Oily skin
  • Blackheads and whiteheads
  • Ance and superficial scars
  • Blotchy, uneven skin
  • Sun damage

After getting facials in the past, you may have thought that a little pain just came with the territory. The excitement of HydraFacial® is that it’s just as thorough in targeting impurities and dead skin as older methods, but it doesn’t come with the discomfort. Rather than sanding your skin, HydraFacial® gently cleanses and vacuums your skin while delivering a combination of cleansing, hydrating, and moisturizing serums.

What does a HydraFacial® consist of?

A HydraFacial® is a four-step treatment, combining the benefits of hydradermabrasion, chemical peels, and extractions:

Cleansing and exfoliation

The first step involves exfoliating the outer layer of skin through a gentle sweeping motion while delivering a cleansing serum, removing dead skin cells and uncovering a new layer of skin. This step opens up your pores and prepares your skin for the rest of the procedure.

Gentle peel

The second step involves delivering a glycolic-salicylic acid solution to loosen dirt that’s trapped inside your pores. Unlike most chemical peels, you won’t feel any stinging. After this step, you’ll receive moisturizers to nourish and revitalize your skin.


The HydraFacial device will use vacuum suction to remove the newly loosened debris from your pores.

Hydrating serum

Now that your skin is clear, the device will deliver a serum that instantly hydrates your skin using peptides and antioxidants. This step is what keeps your skin glowing after you leave the office.

A standard HydraFacial® involving these steps will take about 30 minutes.

Can I add other treatments to the standard HydraFacial®?

Yes. You can customize your treatment to match your skin care needs to ensure you get the maximum benefits from your HydraFacial®. These add-ons each last an additional hour, and they include:

  • Age-refinement: reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles
  • Clarifying: further cleanses congested pores, which can help prevent and reduce acne
  • Radiance: minimizes dark spots
  • Brightalive: minimizes dark spots and helps skin glow
  • Restorative: makes skin more elastic and improves skin tone and texture
