Hydrafacial Q & A

What is a HydraFacial®?

A HydraFacial has the technology to combine cleansing, exfoliation, hydration, extraction, and antioxidant therapy in one treatment. The result is clearer, more radiant skin without the downtime and discomfort that come with more invasive procedures.

During a HydraFacial treatment, the technology targets dead skin cells and impurities with gentle exfoliation and extraction, while nurturing and hydrating your new, fresh skin with moisturizing serums.

These serums can boost your appearance by specifically targeting the signs of aging, discoloration, and uneven texture and tone. Crystal can help determine which serum is right for your skin’s health and your goals. A treatment session lasts just 30-45 minutes.

What types of skin imperfections can a HydraFacial treat?

A HydraFacial can address a number of skin concerns, including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Enlarged or clogged pores
  • Acne-prone skin
  • Brown spots and irregular skin tone
  • Rough skin texture
  • Skin laxity

With HydraFacials, you can reduce unsightly blemishes or wrinkles and improve the overall appearance of your skin without the need for surgery or deep chemical peels.

Who is a candidate for a HydraFacial?

All skin types can benefit from a HydraFacial, even the most sensitive skin types. If you have especially sensitive skin, Crystal can help with a pre-treatment evaluation and sensitivity test. She customizes specific treatment serums to benefit your unique concerns and needs.

Is there any downtime following a HydraFacial?

Following HydraFacial, you can go right back to your normal activities. You don’t have to suffer side effects, potential infection, or even abstain from makeup.

Does a HydraFacial hurt?

A HydraFacial causes no pain. Men and women describe it as feeling like a cooling brush moving gently and slowly over your face.

How soon will I see results from a HydraFacial evident?

You may see more refined and radiant skin after just one treatment. This radiance can last up to seven days.

If you’re looking for a quick rejuvenation for a special event, one HydraFacial treatment is all you need. For long-lasting benefits, it’s best to have a couple HydraFacials a month to maintain a fresh, youthful glow.

With regular HydraFacials, you can improve your skin’s hydration, minimize dark spots, and maintain the reduced look of lines and wrinkles.
