Are you looking for a relaxing, pain-free way to rejuvenate your complexion and address bothersome skin concerns like wrinkles, discoloration, sun damage, acne scars and more? The innovative HydraFacial may be your best option. It uses a patented three-step system and advanced anti-aging skin serums to achieve rejuvenation without downtime or irritation.
What Is HydraFacial MD?
HydraFacial is a three-step skincare treatment that cleanses, extracts and hydrates your skin while remaining gentle even on sensitive skin types. This facial can be completed in as little as 30 minutes and doesn’t cause redness or peeling, so you can get right back to your regularly scheduled activities right after your appointment.
HydraFacial is also completely customizable, allowing your aesthetician to choose the skin serums and optional treatment steps that are best for your skin’s unique needs.

Am I a Candidate?
Virtually anyone with any skin type and a wide range of skin concerns can be a good candidate for HydraFacial. Because it uses patented Vortex-Fusion technology, HydraFacial offers gentle, hydrating and non-irritating extractions, setting it apart from many other similar skin treatments.
However, HydraFacial may not be the best treatment option for those with rosacea or other similar skin conditions. Our skin-experienced aestheticians will work with you to create a customized treatment plan that is right for your skin.
How HydraFacial Works
HydraFacial is a three-step process that cleanses, extracts and hydrates your skin after a single treatment.
- A topical serum and alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) peel are applied to the skin. These formulas gently exfoliate your skin’s top layer to reveal a fresh, brighter complexion and prepare your skin for the next steps.
- The skin is decongested and hydrated using the patented Vortex-Fusion suction technology to gently extract pores and impart deep hydration.
- Antioxidants and peptides are applied to the skin to protect your results and impart a bright, healthy-looking glow.
Optional additional treatments that can be included in your HydraFacial include blue light therapy for acne-prone skin, red light therapy for further minimizing lines and wrinkles and a deeper medical-grade peel for maximum exfoliation.
HydraFacial results can be noticeable directly after your treatment, and there is no downtime or recovery time needed, so you can get right back to work, exercise and other normal daily activities.
Most people enjoy their smoother, brighter complexion for 5 to 7 days after their HydraFacial, and many choose to include HydraFacial in their monthly skincare routine to maintain their same great results.
How much does HydraFacial cost?
On average, HydraFacial costs $150 to $300, depending on your customized treatment plan and other factors.
How should I prep my skin before getting a HydraFacial?
For best results, avoid sun exposure as much as possible in the days leading up to your HydraFacial appointment. Your provider may also ask you to temporarily stop using certain treatment creams and products, such as Accutane or retinol, in preparation for your HydraFacial. On the day of your appointment, arrive with a clean, bare face, free of makeup, moisturizers or other products.
How do I find the best HydraFacial provider near me?
Choose a HydraFacial provider with ample experience and training and who can customize a treatment plan and skincare regimen for you based on your skin’s unique characteristics and needs.
Is a HydraFacial appropriate for all skin types?
Yes. HydraFacial is a gentle procedure that can be appropriate for all skin types and tones, even those with sensitive skin. Your HydraFacial provider will customize your treatment to best meet your skin’s unique needs, so be sure to let him or her know if you have a history of sensitive skin, acne or allergies.
However, if you have sunburn, a rash or moderate to severe acne or rosacea, your provider may recommend waiting until your skin has cleared to get a HydraFacial.
What areas can be treated with a HydraFacial?
While the face is the most popular treatment area for HydraFacials, this gentle skin-rejuvenating treatment can also be used on areas like your neck, upper chest, upper back and the backs of your hands. Each HydraFacial treatment can be customized based on your skin type and needs and the area(s) of your body being treated.
Does HydraFacial really work?
Yes, HydraFacial offers excellent results that can exceed those of some traditional facials. Most people who get a HydraFacial are more than pleased with their outcome.
Is HydraFacial painful?
Most people find that HydraFacial is a comfortable procedure, reporting only a mild tugging sensation as the patented suction technology moves across the skin.
Are there any side effects after a HydraFacial?
Because of its gentle approach to cleansing, exfoliating and protecting your skin, HydraFacial typically does not result in side effects. However, some redness may occur in some people directly after their HydraFacial. If it does develop, redness is typically mild and should diminish on its own shortly after your appointment.
Can you wear makeup after getting a HydraFacial?
Yes, you can wear makeup directly after your HydraFacial if you wish. However, you should avoid using skincare products that contain glycolic acid or other hydroxy acids that exfoliate the skin, as well as over-the-counter acne treatment products such as benzoyl peroxide, for the next 1 to 2 days after your HydraFacial.
Wear daily sunscreen and avoid prolonged sun exposure, as your skin may be more sensitive to the sun directly following treatment. Additionally, protecting your skin from the sun will help to prolong your HydraFacial results.
How long do HydraFacial results last?
While the immediate skin-smoothing and -brightening effects of HydraFacial can last for 5 to 7 days, you may continue to notice a difference in your complexion for several weeks after your appointment. Many people choose to work a monthly HydraFacial appointment into their regular beauty routine to maintain their glowing results.
Can a HydraFacial be combined with other skin treatments?
Yes, HydraFacial works very well when paired with other skin treatments. Some of the most popular med spa treatments to pair with HydraFacial include injectables like fillers and BOTOX® and medical-grade skincare products.
However, you should not get microdermabrasion treatments, chemical peels or ablative laser treatments for at least two weeks after getting a HydraFacial.
How many HydraFacial treatments will I need?
You should see a significant improvement in your skin’s tone and texture after a single HydraFacial treatment. However, many people choose to get monthly HydraFacial treatments for prolonged results.
