What Is HydraFacial®?
HydraFacial® is an advanced and innovative treatment process aimed at revitalizing the health and appearance of your skin through a patented three-step process: exfoliating, cleansing, and enriching. By exfoliating the skin, cleansing impurities, and then enriching the skin by way of introducing antioxidants and nutrients, your skin can be restored to its full health. Over time, your skin may experience certain changes due to the natural aging process, including concerns that can impact the tone, texture, and overall health of your skin. HydraFacial® can address these concerns through a relaxing, in-office treatment that causes no downtime from your regular activities.
Customizing My HydraFacial® Treatment
With guidance from our med spa team and board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Jon Kurkjian, your treatment plan will be unique to your needs and skin concerns. Dr. Kurkjian has extensive experience performing treatment with HydraFacial® and has completed advanced training in facial plastic surgery and facial rejuvenation in general. During your initial consultation, you will be able to discuss your goals, needs, and concerns with our team to give us a better understanding of your goals. In the last step of treatment, a serum specifically chosen for your skin concerns will also be applied to restore necessary nutrients in your skin. By customizing treatment for each person, HydraFacial® can be extremely effective at reducing or eliminating issues like hyperpigmentation, acne scarring, sun damage, and wrinkles, among other concerns.
What Are the Benefits of a HydraFacial®?
HydraFacial® can treat an array of common skin concerns, including wrinkles, uneven skin tone or texture, clogged or enlarged pores, and more. More specific benefits can include:
- Smoothing or eliminating the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
- Reducing pores that have become clogged or enlarged
- Improving the appearance of oily skin
- Eliminating hyperpigmentation and brown spots
- Diminishing acne, pimples, and scars
- Addressing sun-damaged skin
- Balancing skin tones and providing overall smoother skin
Generally, HydraFacial® can reduce facial blemishes as well as help you achieve a healthier appearance overall. It can also be completed during a rapid in-office session that achieves results quickly with no downtime.
What Does a HydraFacial® Treatment Involve?
HydraFacial® treatments are generally fast and take only 30 minutes to complete. The handpiece, which features a rotating, spiraling head, is guided along the face while it works as a vacuum to remove excess dirt, oil, dead skin cells, and other irritants in order to exfoliate and cleanse the skin. The next step involves applying a serum, designed for each patient’s unique skin concerns, made up of hyaluronic acid, salicylic acid, peptides, and antioxidants. This product is infused with the skin to replenish your face of hydration and moisture. In some cases, extra serum or boosts can be utilized for patients who have more prevalent skin conditions to address. Another way patients can enhance their overall results is to combine HydraFacial® with other skincare treatments.
How Long Do HydraFacial® Results Last?
While the results from HydraFacial® are quick and fast-acting, it will likely be recommended that you schedule more than one session in order to optimize the overall outcome. While one session is often enough to see noticeable results of more vibrant, clear, and youthful-looking skin, monthly treatments are often the standard for maximizing the benefits of HydraFacial®.
How Much Does a HydraFacial® Cost?
The cost of HydraFacial® will vary from patient to patient as the treatment plan for each individual will differ. However, the average cost of one HydraFacial® session will likely range from $200 to $350 with each treatment lasting between 30 minutes and an hour. Our practice accepts all major credit cards and offers unique financing options that include CareCredit® and Prosper® HealthCare Lending.
