Hydrafacial FAQ's

What is the HydraFacial™?

The HydraFacial ™  resurfacing procedure thoroughly cares for your skin, providing cleansing, exfoliation, extractions, and hydration, including Vortex-Fusion ™  of antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid. The HydraFacial ™  is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that delivers instant results with no discomfort or downtime. The procedure is immediately effective.

How does the HydraFacial™ work?

Each treatment uses a series of HydroPeel ™  tips - each one has multiple peeling edges to exfoliate the skin several times each pass, achieving better, more even results. The unique spiral design creates a vortex effect to easily dislodge and remove impurities while simultaneously introducing hydrating skin solutions with potent antioxidants.

Step 1 - Cleansing and Exfoliation
Dead skin cells are removed to reveal healthy new skin.
Step 2 - Acid Peel
This gentle peel helps loosen dirt and debris from pores without irritation.
Step 3 - Extractions
Painless automated extractions use vortex suction to clean out pores.
Step 4 - Hydration
Antioxidants and Hyaluronic Acid are vortex-fused to nourish and protect.
Step 5 - Protection
The HydraFacial daily essentials help to maintain and protect your results.

Why is the HydraFacial ™  good for my skin?

Hydration is the foundation of healthy, radiant skin. Irritation of the skin has been proven to increase signs of aging. The HydraFacial ™  is a hydrating and non-irritating treatment.

Am I a candidate for this treatment?

The HydraFacial ™  is designed for all skin types. Even the most sensitive skin easily tolerates the HydraFacial ™.  At ABSOLUTE LASER MD we will choose the specific treatment serums and/or customize the treatment for your unique skin conditions and needs. 

How long does the treatment take? Is there any downtime or pain involved?

The HydraFacial ™  is an effective, efficient treatment that takes as little as 30 minutes without pain or downtime. It is often described as a feeling like "a cool brush moving over the face". You may apply make-up and return to your normal activities right after the treatment.

What results may be expected? How many treatments are needed to see results? How long do the results last?

Many people report seeing visible skin refinement and an even, radiant skin tone after just one treatment. The smooth results and hydration may last 5 to 7 days or even longer. One treatment per month is recommended for improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, oily and congested skin. Continued HydraFacial ™ treatments are recommended to maintain results.
