FAQ – HydraFacial
HydraFacial is an invigorating treatment that can be given in as little as 30 minutes. It delivers long-term skin health and can be tailored to meet the specific needs of all skin types. It offers instant, noticeable results with no downtime or irritation. The HydraFacial treatment removes dead skin cells and extracts impurities while simultaneously bathing the new skin with cleansing, hydrating and moisturizing serums. The treatment is soothing, refreshing, non-irritating and immediately effective.
Am I a good candidate?
The HydraFacial treatment is designed for all skin types. Even the most sensitive skin easily tolerates the HydraFacial treatment. We may choose specific treatment serums and/or customize the treatment for your unique skin conditions and needs.
What areas can be treated?
The most popular areas to treat with HydraFacial are face, neck, décolletage, and back. We can also add on an eye area or lip treatment!
What does the treatment feel like?
The treatment is very comfortable and relaxing; it is often described as a feeling like a cool paintbrush moving over the face.
What is the difference between HydraFacial and Microdermabrasion?
Unlike microdermabrasion, HydraFacial can treat all skin concerns, including very sensitive skin, rosacea and broken capillaries. HydraFacial's unique Vortex-Fusion serum delivery system is what differentiates HydraFacial from Microdermabrasion. This multi-step treatment cleanses, evenly exfoliates and extracts to remove impurities and dead skin cells while at the same time replenishing vital nutrients including Antioxidants, Peptides and Hyaluronic Acid. This superior delivery system delivers these ingredients to the skin to effectively help improve environmental damage, reduce fine lines & wrinkles, and plump & firm skin for long-term results you can see instantly.
Who performs this treatment?
All HydraFacial treatments are performed by one of our well-trained skincare professionals. They are extensively trained before performing our treatments and are overseen by Dr. Ricks.
How many treatments are required?
HydraFacial is most valuable when incorporated into your skincare routine monthly. It is an excellent treatment for maintaining healthy skin. However, you can still get excellent short-term results from a single treatment! Schedule a complimentary skincare consultation with us to discuss how HydraFacial can be incorporated into your life in a way that suits your schedule and budget!
Are there any side effects?
Slight redness after the treatment is the most common side effect, and typically resolves in less than 30 minutes.
Is there any downtime?
Our goal is to help support you in a balanced lifestyle. That’s why HydraFacial is a fast, efficient treatment that takes as little as 30 minutes. You may put on makeup and return to your normal activities right after the treatment since there is no downtime.
When will I see results? Is maintenance required?
Many clients 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. We don’t believe in quick fixes, so one treatment per month is recommended for improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots, oily and congested skin. Continued HydraFacial treatments are highly recommended to maintain skin health results.
How much does it cost?
We have several different HydraFacials suited for different skin concerns which range from $150-275. We also have discounted HydraFacial packages available, as well as monthly memberships which offer lower pricing for those who incorporate this treatment into their monthly skincare routine.
