What to Expect When Getting a HydraFacial
Updated on: August 23, 2023
You’ve just scheduled your facial, but what exactly is a HydraFacial™ and what should you expect? While all facials are unique to the technician offering them, our HydraFacial™ goes above and beyond the rest. The HydraFacial is the only hydradermabrasion procedure that combines cleansing, extraction and hydration simultaneously. This unique combination gives unbeatable results in very little turnaround time.
What is a HydraFacial™ ?
A HydraFacial is a multistep facial treatment offered at medical spas. During this procedure, a specialized handheld device that resembles a wand brushes over the surface of your skin. This tool uses an exfoliating tip and suction to remove dirt and dead skin cells. After resurfacing the skin, the wand delivers rejuvenating serums selected to suit your skin type. The device serves to exfoliate, extract, cleanse, and hydrate. The HydraFacial is unique in that it works in three distinct steps:
Step 1: Cleanse & Peel
Uncover a new layer of skin with gentle exfoliation and relaxing resurfacing. Many compare this to an electric toothbrush softly pressing against the skin.
Step 2: Extract & Hydrate
Remove debris from pores with painless suction. Nourish with intense moisturizers that quench skin.
Step 3: Fuse & Protect
Saturate the skin’s surface with antioxidants and peptides to maximize your glow, and have you feeling like you’re living in your best skin possible.
Do’s & don’ts before getting a HydaFacial
While our technicians are highly trained and able to handle any and all skin types, here are a few tips we recommend to get the most out of your treatment.
1 – Skip any strong at-home skin care treatments and exfoliation. This will help ensure your skin is well protected and not over-treated.
2 – Skip the tanning bed, or any extreme outside tanning. (And always opt for that high SPD sunscreen!)
3 – Ensure your technician knows if you’re on any medications, have any medical concerns or sensitive skin.
4 – And do make sure to drink lots of water before and after your facial. Hydration is key!
Can I customize my HydraFacial?
Of course! The HydraFacial can be used to target wrinkles, dryness, acne, blackheads, large pores and more. Our estheticians are trained to offer the best recommendations when it comes to the health of your skin. However, here are some of our most popular options.
Add a steam session to the already amazing 4 step treatment that includes cleansing, exfoliating, extracting and hydrating the skin with serums that are infused into pores with the HydraPeel tip.

What can I expect after getting a HydraFacial™ ?
You’re on your way to your best skin ever! And while everyone’s skin is different, your results will be fantastically unique to you! You may find that your skin has a bit of irritation, tightness, or redness. These are all completely normal reactions and nothing to be concerned about. Most of those will typically resolve themselves within 72 hours depending on skin sensitivity. For the best results, we recommend regular treatments, so talk to your esthetician to find the best plan for your skin.
