The Hydra Facial Skin Experience Facial is a great facial for all skin types and conditions, whether it’s acne or dry skin. The treatment includes deep pore cleansing, gentle exfoliation, a peel, and hydration. Also called hydrodermabrasion, it is applied with a wand that sucks out dead skin, bacteria and debris while infusing targeted serums.

What is the Hydra Facial Skin Experience Facial?

During your HydraFacial Skin Experience Facial you will enjoy a relaxing spa experience with sound healing, aromatherapy, and Oxygen therapy. The Lymphatic drainage step is used to help with dark circles, puffiness and inflammation which helps pores look more refined. Masks are custom picked for your skin type and condition. Our Reiki Certified Facialist will deliver healing and tranquility.

HydraFacial MD is one of the latest non-surgical, non-invasive skin resurfacing procedures. The immediate, long lasting, results with zero downtime means you can return to work, social life, exercise and other normal activities right after your procedure. The HydraFacial Experience evolved from a more common non-surgical procedure known as microdermabrasion. However unlike microdermabrasion, which uses micro-crystals to exfoliate the skin, HydraFacial MD uses a uniquely shaped spiral tip that creates a vortex effect to exfoliate, remove the skin’s impurities, and simultaneously hydrates the skin. The additional capability of hydrating the skin after dermabrasion is one of the unique attributes of the HydraFacial MD.

Popular add-ons are corrective chemical peels, VBeam or Clear + Brilliant lasers, Dermaplaning or AquaGold Microneedling. Injections can be done same day. We suggest doing a facial once a month for best results and packages are available.

If you are considering surgery, The HydraFacial Skin Experience Facial is a great way to cleanse, plump and tone the skin before and after your procedure.

The unique Vortex-Fusion® serum delivery system is what sets the HydraFacial MD® apart from other procedures. The multi-step treatment cleanses, evenly exfoliates and extracts to remove impurities and dead skin cells while at the same time replenishing vital nutrients including Antioxidants, Peptides and Hyaluronic Acid. Thanks to the devices’ superior delivery system, these performing ingredients are able to more effectively reduce the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles for results you can see and feel instantly.
