Not All Facials Are Created Equal: Meet the HydraFacial®

Is your face showing signs of aging? Perhaps you have dark spots from sun damage. Maybe the texture doesn’t feel smooth and silky like it should.

At A Beautiful You Medical Spa, our expert medical aestheticians, under the direction of board-certified physician Dr. Kenneth Thompson, are ready to provide a skin rejuvenation treatment you’ll love: the HydraFacial®.

Advantages of the HydraFacial

Unlike some facials that concentrate on one skin problem, the HydraFacial solves a number of skin problems in one treatment. It hydrates your skin and can remedy a host of other concerns. Here are the different ways that a HydraFacial benefits your skin:

  • Hydrates
  • Thoroughly cleanses the skin
  • Softens rough skin
  • Firms loose skin
  • Makes dull skin radiant
  • Minimizes the appearance of age spots
  • Shrinks large pores
  • Plumps up skin to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles

The HydraFacial is a noninvasive procedure. It’s not painful, and there’s no downtime. You can resume your normal day afterward. Other facial rejuvenation treatments may be painful and can leave bruising or flaky skin.

You can choose how long your HydraFacial takes — 30, 60, or 90 minutes, depending on your goals.

What happens during a HydraFacial?

A HydraFacial combines three procedures in one treatment, using different tips on the patented handheld wand to rejuvenate your skin.

Cleans and peels

Your expert aesthetician uses a spiral tip on the wand for this step of the procedure. When we turn the HydraFacial machine on, it uses special vortex technology to deep-clean your face and provide a light facial peel.

The peel exfoliates your skin, which means that it removes dead skin cells on your skin’s surface. The exfoliation process helps smooth your skin’s texture to make it feel silky.

Extracts and hydrates

The next step in the HydraFacial process uses vacuum technology to remove oily dirt and blackheads from deep in your pores, lessening the chance of an inflamed pimple if you’re prone to acne.

Clogged pores lead to acne breakouts. The HydraFacial also reduces the bacteria on your skin that causes acne.

Infuses and protects

We use a special attachment that looks like a pen to spread special serums filled with antioxidants and hyaluronic acid into your skin. Our team customizes the treatment to provide serums that match your goals, including any in the list of advantages we mentioned earlier.

You’ll love the way the HydraFacial keeps your skin looking youthful and radiant. You may want to make monthly appointments so that it becomes a regular part of your beauty routine. You put your best face forward by having a HydraFacial before a big event like a wedding or gala.
