HydraFacial™ is the most effective non-laser skin treatment.

Beautiful skin with no downtime is possible for virtually any skin type or color.

When it comes to having perfect skin, women have tried everything. It's too bad the results (constant irritation, sudden redness, skin scaling off for a week) aren’t  as dramatic as the methods. 

The HydraFacial™ is a better approach: a non-irritating treatment that exfoliates but also hydrates the skin at the same time. Designed for all skin types and conditions (acne, wrinkles, and dark circles), it infuses the skin's surface with moisturizing serums and gently removes impurities. The results can often be seen immediately and continue to improve with the treatment sessions. Facial acid peels with little or no post-peel scaling or downtime are also possible with the HydraFacial™, a non-laser resurfacing system that hydrates the skin while it resurfaces in a process called "hydradermabrasion"

Most mechanical skin treatment systems are very irritating to the face and so each treatment can only go so far. The HydraFacial system combines mechanical with chemical exfoliation, allowing for a much more complete facial treatment. The device also injects specialized serums into the dermis which hydrate the skin at the same time. 

The system uses a simultaneous combination of specialized serums with a spiral resurfacing tip, achieving results comparable to many types of laser treatments. 

Microdermabrasion used to be considered the most effective method of exfoliation and mild skin rejuvenation. This mechanical form of exfoliation uses a powerful device to spray microcrystals of aluminum dioxide (corundum powder) across the skin's surface to blast away the uppermost layer of epidermis, mixing with suction to remove the outer layer of skin while stimulating collagen and elastin production. 

The problem is, microdermabrasion is not recommended for all skin types. People with sensitive or thin skin, Rosacea or ethnic skin types are often turned away due to the potential of reactions such as scarring, hyper-pigmentation and irritation. A small percentage of those who did receive treatment reported discomfort around sensitive tissue such as the mouth and nose and a hyper-sensitivity to sun exposure. 

The HydraFacial offers a highly effective alternative, using the newest form of skin resurfacing technology that is non-invasive and non-irritating. It is also the only procedure currently available that integrates cleansing, exfoliation, extraction and hydration simultaneously, saving time and giving immediately noticeable results with no discomfort or downtime. 

Used with specifically formulated serums in combination with a vacuum-based skin abrasion tip, HydraFacial treatments remove dead skin cells and impurities while bathing the healthy underlying skin with deep cleansing, extracting, exfoliating and antioxidant serums. The proprietary serums are formulated to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, congested pores, hyper-pigmentation and acne-prone skin. The treatments are appropriate for most skin types including thin or aging skin, darker skin tones and oily skin. The HydraFacial uses color-coded tips to exfoliate, clean, hydrate and perform extractions on the skin at the same time.
