No matter how dedicated you are to your skincare routine, debris, blockages, and dead skin cells may still build up over time and keep your skin from appearing its healthiest. Dullness, dryness, and irregular texture can impede your skin’s glow so gradually that you may not notice it until it becomes significant. If your skin needs a reset, you may benefit from a HydraFacial treatment at our practice in Roanoke, VA.

What Is a HydraFacial?

A HydraFacial is a skin rejuvenation treatment that uses innovative vortex technology to cleanse the skin, gently peel away dead cells, extract pore blockages, and infuse the skin with hydrating serums in one 30-minute session.

Who Is a Candidate for a HydraFacial?

HydraFacials are suitable for all skin types and tones and can help treat a variety of skin conditions. HydraFacials work well for maintaining results after laser skin treatments such as Fraxel® or many others performed with the Lumenis® M22™ platform.

What Skin Conditions Does a HydraFacial Treat?

A HydraFacial can be used to treat many common skin concerns, including:

  • Acne
  • Fine lines
  • Dark spots
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Dry skin
  • Clogged pores

How Is a HydraFacial Performed?

A HydraFacial is performed in 4 steps:

  • Cleansing: Your provider will begin by sweeping the device’s handpiece over your skin to clear away any residual makeup or debris.
  • Exfoliation: He or she will then apply a gentle glycolic and salicylic acid peel to remove dead or damaged skin cells.
  • Extraction: Using a small vacuum tool, your provider will then extract any blockages from your pores. You’ll be able to see everything that is removed from your skin, which many patients find very satisfying.
  • Infusion: The final step is the infusion of a hydrating, elasticity-boosting serum.

Your facial can be customized to best address your skin’s needs, which may include additional serums or light therapies.

Is a HydraFacial Painful?

Not at all. The HydraFacial is known for its gentle, comfortable, and generally pleasant treatment experience. You may feel a light massage sensation throughout, but you should not experience any discomfort.

What Is HydraFacial Recovery Like?

There is no recovery time required after a HydraFacial. Most people can return to their daily routines, including applying makeup, right away.

How Long Do HydraFacial Results Last?

The boosted, healthier glow you should notice right after your appointment typically lasts 5 to 7 days or longer.

How Often Will I Need a HydraFacial?

You’ll likely notice results after just one session, but many people choose to refresh their results with monthly treatments. Your results may last even longer when combined or alternated with other skincare treatments, such as the OxyGeneo™ 3-in-1 Super Facial.
