Consider this: A multi-benefit facial that cleanses, exfoliates, and nourishes skin- all in one treatment session.

Sounds amazing, right?

The good news is, this treatment already exists! Introducing HydraFacial.

In this article, we will provide you with all the information needed to help you decide if the HydraFacial is right for you: from what it is to how it works, along with the benefits it provides.

What is a HydraFacial?

HydraFacial is a multistep facial that uses a unique Vortex-Fusion delivery system to cleanse, exfoliate, extract the build-up from pores, all while infusing customized serums into the skin. 


During a HydraFacial treatment, your provider will use a handheld device that has different “HydraPeel” attachments to vacuum out dead skin cells, gently exfoliate, and infuse the skin with soothing and hydrating serums. 


Some of the concerns and target areas the HydraFacial can address include:

  • Correcting uneven or dull skin tone
  • Smoothing skin texture
  • Clearing and preventing clogged pores, excess sebum production, and acne breakouts
  • Hydrating dry, dehydrated skin
  • Softening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles


Basically, each facial can be tailored specifically to your skin’s unique needs and your own aesthetic goals.

The HydraFacial Process: Step By Step

  1. During the HydraFacial treatment, you’ll find the process to be somewhat similar to other facials, with a few extra steps for added benefits.

    • Cleanse & Peel – The cleansing phase purifies deep into the pores, clearing away makeup and other build-up. The peel phase uses a mix of glycolic and salicylic acids to help exfoliate the top layer of dead skin cells.
    • Extract – Using a vacuum-like attachment, the extraction phase suctions out blackheads and any remaining deep-seated impurities. This also stimulates lymphatic drainage and boosts circulation.
    • Hydrate – Next, a specific serum infused with hydrating ingredients, antioxidants, peptides, and collagen is applied to the skin. The serum in this step of the treatment can be customized depending on your needs.
    • Protect – The final step is the application of moisturizer with SPF to protect your skin and finish off the treatment.


How Long Do HydraFacials Last?

Although everyone’s skin tone and skin type are different, the results from a HydraFacial generally last an average of five to seven days.

While you can see results after as little as one treatment, monthly maintenance HydraFacials are recommended to keep skin glowing and rejuvenated.

Most clients prefer monthly treatments as they not only see added benefits, but the procedure itself provides a relaxing experience!
