HydraFacial therapy provides you with clear, rejuvenated, hydrated, and younger-looking skin. A HydraFacial therapy treatment is effective in easing away fine lines and wrinkles, cleaning oily or congested pores, and preventing hyperpigmentation on all skin types. It improves the tone and texture of your skin and prevents any signs of aging. As the name suggests, it is used to thoroughly hydrate your skin.

The treatment is particularly easy and does not take much of your time. It lasts for about half an hour and can be done at a spa. Because everyone has a different skin type and unique needs, the treatment can be tailored according to your preferences.

The HydraFacial treatment involves four steps. Each one is discussed below.

Step 1 – Cleansing and Exfoliation

A deplaning tool (something like a spinning toothbrush) is used to remove makeup residue and dead cells. It also effectively opens up any clogged pores.

Step 2 – Acid Peel

A glycolic or salicylic acid peel is used to clean the skin. It does not tingle much and is quite painless.

Step 3 – Extractions

A vortex extraction nozzle is used to vacuum clean the pores. The nozzle sucks out all the dirt and grime that is blocking the pores in your skin.

Step 4 – Serum Application

A vortex fusion tool is used to apply a serum to the skin. The serum is rich in antioxidants and collagen. Through this, the skin gets replenished with all the essential ingredients. The serum is able to increase hydration and elasticity for the skin, making it look healthy and firm.

You can put on makeup and go for work immediately after the treatment is over.


A HydraFacial treatment has both immediate and long-term benefits. You can see and feel the improvements in the health of your skin, and the results will last for several days. In order to maintain healthy skin, it is advisable that you go for HydraFacials at least once every month.

The HydraFacial has different types of treatments to cure particular skin problems.

Skin Health – The HydraFacial Skin Health for Life treatment improves hydration and protects the skin from damage. Super-serums such as antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid are applied to the skin. The skin looks fresh and rejuvenated.

Anti-Aging – The HydraFacial Anti-Aging treatment improves the elasticity of the skin and minimizes fine lines and wrinkles. After treatment, the skin looks plump and taut. Derma builder multi-peptide anti-aging serum is used in this kind of treatment.

Pigmentation – The HydraFacial Hydra Peel treatment reduces brown marks (pigmentation), age spots, and liver spots. Any other discoloration related to sun damage and aging of the skin is also treated. Glycolic and salicylic acids help cure these conditions.

Acne and Congested Skin – The HydraFacial Acne and Acne Scarring treatment treats active acne and scarring of skin. Using natural salicylic acid, it can reduce excess oils in congested pores and deeply exfoliate the skin.
