A HydraFacial cleans, exfoliates and hydrates your skin to produce instant results in three steps. It’s just one of many cosmetic services we offer at The MedSpa at Walk-in Dermatology, and we’re confident you’re going to love what it can do for you.

The treatment uses a medical-grade hydradermabrasion machine that helps uncover a new layer of skin by exfoliating, removing debris from pores with painless suction, and saturating the skin’s surface with antioxidants and peptides to maximize the glow.

In addition to these benefits, what’s really great about a HydraFacial is there are no side effects. Unlike other skin care treatments that may cause adverse effects, such as soreness or redness which results in downtime, a HydraFacial does not.

How does a HydraFacial treatment work?

There are three processes to a HydraFacial treatment – cleansing and exfoliation, extraction and hydration, followed by fusing and protection. Here’s how it works:

Cleansing and exfoliation

The hydradermabrasion machine’s patented technology is calibrated for each patient. The first step is to reveal a new layer of skin through gentle exfoliation and resurfacing. The process removes dead skin cells to reveal healthy skin underneath.

Next, we apply a skin peel of GlySal, a blend of glycolic and salicylic acids. This helps your skin peel, but without the after-scaling that some chemical peels can cause. This hydra-peel exfoliation gently cleanses your skin and removes sebum, the oily substance that causes acne. The GlySal peel helps pull dirt from deep in your pores, preventing acne and furthering that beautiful glow.

Extraction and hydration

A HydraFacial treatment continues with the removal of dirt and toxins from your pores with a painless suction. While the vacuum removes sebum, blackheads and the bacteria that form in skin pores, it’s also delivering hydration to nurture your skin. The result? Your skin doesn’t feel dry or itchy when you leave. Instead, your skin feels smooth, soft and refreshed.

Fusing and protection

This is the third and final step in your HydraFacial treatment. Fusing and protection is designed to protect the benefits of your HydraFacial treatment so it lasts as long as possible. We saturate the skin with antioxidants and peptides to preserve that healthy glow. You’ll look younger and feel great.

HydraFacial benefits

Fresh, glowing skin is the primary goal of a HydraFacial treatment, but there are many other benefits to the procedure.

First, there’s no downtime. A HydraFacial treatment takes about 30 minutes start-to-finish. Once you’re done, there’s no downtime. You can return immediately to your regular routine. You can even apply makeup right afterward, but why would you? No reason to cover up that beautiful, glowing skin.

Another key benefit of the HydraFacial is that it’s a pain-free procedure. Some patients report a very mild discomfort or tickling sensation, while many find the procedure completely relaxing. The hyperdermabrasion machine is designed to hydrate your skin during the procedure so the process is smooth and painless. There’s no tugging or scraping on your skin, no burning sensation like you might experience with some other treatments. At most, you may see a temporary redness, which quickly goes away.

Best of all, you’ll see noticeably healthier skin immediately. Want to reverse the appearance of aging? A HydraFacial treatment instantly produces firmer, younger-looking skin. It even works on fine wrinkles and visible pores.
