Hydra-Facial uses technology to cleanse, exfoliate and hydrate skin while infusing highly-effective serums tailored to your specific skin needs. This unique process helps resolve several skin concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, skin laxity, poor texture, and pore congestion. Suitable for all skin types, this rejuvenating treatment is gentle, non-invasive, and effective immediately.
An important step in any effective skincare treatment involves exfoliating the top layer of skin. One commonly known exfoliation technique is microdermabrasion. It uses micro-crystals to mechanically exfoliate the skin. While this method is very effective, it can also act as an irritant for acne-prone or sensitive skin types.
To address these concerns, Hydra-Facial was designed, using water as the exfoliating medium. This multi-step treatment uses a patented device to cleanse, exfoliate, and extract dead skin cells while bathing the skin in serums packed with rich hydrating ingredients, antioxidants, and peptides. In addition to this, you can work with your skincare professional to further customize your HydraFacial by incorporating add-ons or boosters targeting your specific skin concerns.

With high concentrations of potent ingredients, SkinCeuticals professional products can also be incorporated to complement and enhance the HydraFacial experience. The dermatologist-tested SkinCeuticals + HydraFacial Integrated treatment amplifies the effects of the procedure by infusing the benefits of SkinCeuticals vitamin C serums, corrective solutions, and broad spectrum sunscreens. HydraFacial follows the same steps of a basic medical facial: cleansing and exfoliation, chemical peel, extractions, and infusion of serums. All four steps are administered through various attachments on the HydraFacial device. The suction and movement of the device boosts lymphatic drainage and improves circulation in the skin. These non-invasive treatments are painless and are generally offered in 45, and 60 minute sessions, making them easy to work into any schedule with no down time.
After a Hydra Facial treatment, you will notice immediate results. Skin will feel smoother, softer, and more hydrated as a result of the exfoliating acids and hydrating ingredients used.
Q. How does a Hydrafacial work?
A. The Hydrafacial device uses three actions that contribute to the resurfacing of the skin; physical exfoliation from water pressure and a textured tip, chemical exfoliation from acids such as glycolic and salicylic, and suction to lift dead skin cells off the surface.
A basic treatment starts with a water-based solution being blasted onto the skin to break up the topmost layer of dead skin cells. Using the spiral suction tip of the HydraFacial device, the dead skin cells and surface debris are lifted away, providing a gentler method of extraction. Next, a chemical peel solution is delivered in the same way, increasing the depth of exfoliation. The final steps involve the same pressurized delivery of treatment serums customized to the needs of the skin. Because all steps are delivered in a hydrating, water-based solution, the HydraFacial delivers an impressive amount of plumping hydration to the skin when compared to a more traditional microdermabrasion treatment.Some HydraFacial treatments go a step further with the addition of aesthetic modalities such as microcurrent or LED light therapy.
Q. When should I get a Hydrafacial?
A. A HydraFacial is a great option for anyone desiring smoother, deeply hydrated skin with a quick turnaround. It is generally recommended to avail of a Hydrafacial once a month. As there is no downtime associated with the treatment, it can be administered anytime during the year.
Q. What will I experience after a Hydrafacial?
A. After a Hydra Facial treatment, you will notice immediate results. Skin will feel smoother, softer, and more hydrated as a result of the exfoliating acids and hydrating ingredients used.
Q. Who is a good candidate for a Hydrafacial treatment?
A. Hydra Facials can be performed on all skin types, including very sensitive skin. As always, it is best to consult with Dr. Reema Arora to discuss any conditions or allergies prior to booking a session. Hydra Facials should also be avoided by individuals with a contact allergy to shellfish, as it is an ingredient found in one of the primary steps of the treatment.
