Microdermabrasion is an exfoliation treatment that physically removes the top layer of dead skin cells. The exfoliation is done with the use of a diamond-tipped wand or a fine crystals spray. During the treatment, the skin therapist moves the applicator across the skin to remove the debris and gently abrade the skin. It is a very effective treatment but it can be too rough for patients with sensitive skin.

On the other hand, HydraFacial doesn’t resurface the skin in that way. It is a much gentler method that involves suction and water. The treatment uses the technology of patented Vortex fusion that emits jets of water and vacuums the dirt out of pores and fuses the skin with nourishing serums at the same time. Since it is less abrasive than microdermabrasion treatment, HydraFacial is suitable for all skin types even the sensitive ones. 


This procedure can help with various skin concerns, including:

  • Skin tone and texture
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Age and sun spots
  • Acne-prone skin
  • Oily skin
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Clogged and large pores
  • Tired-looking skin
  • Skin firmness and elasticity
  • Dry skin


One of the best benefits of the HydraFacial procedure is that it is suitable for all skin types. Since it is a non-invasive treatment that doesn’t provoke inflammation or irritation of the skin, it can be used for people of all ages, ethnicities and concerns. Each HydraFacial can be customized to treat the patient’s specific skin concerns. 

Although this treatment is very gentle it is not suitable for patients who have rosacea, sunburn, active rash or infection. 


The skin therapist uses a patented device to exfoliate, cleanse, extract and hydrate the skin. The technology behind HydraFacial lies in using a vortex swirling action for the removal of impurities in a gentle and soothing manner. Most patients describe the treatment as the feeling of an electric toothbrush pressed against the skin. Even patients with sensitive skin find it soothing. 

Each HydraFacial treatment involves different steps which require different applicator tips.

    The patient’s face is thoroughly cleansed from oil, makeup, sebum and dead skin cells. The new and healthy and bright skin is revealed. The pores gently get opened and prepared for the next step.
    There the patient’s pores are cleared from blockages. The strength of the peel is chosen according to the patient’s skin type and skin concerns. The skin therapist uses lactic, glycolic and salicylic acids. These acids exfoliate the skin in a gentle manner. Compared to a traditional chemical peel, HydraFacial’s peeling is subtle but very effective. It is non-irritating and doesn’t cause redness that lasts for days. The patient’s skin is prepared for the absorption of serums and soften comedones for easy to extract. This is especially effective in preventing acne. 
    During this step, the skin therapist uses a vortex vacuum suction to remove blackheads, dirt and other impurities. The suction tip is powerful but painless and doesn’t cause any discomfort. Then it is followed by manual extraction.
    This step involves bathing the skin with moisturizers. The skin gets hydrated, softer, plumper and healthier. It is also more resilient to pollutants. The skin is also fused with a custom-tailored serum that consists of amino acids, peptides, antioxidants and hyaluronic acid. Since the pores are opened the serum is quickly absorbed and the skin is instantly more rejuvenated, restored and detoxified.


Yes, completely. During the initial consultation with the skin therapist, the therapist examines the patient’s skin and decides on the combination of serums that address the patient’s specific skin concerns and fulfill the patient’s aesthetic goals. 

The therapist determines how strong the suction should be and how long the acids should sit on the patient’s face for the best results. Also, the therapist can recommend to the patient how often to get HydraFacial treatment to maintain the results and keep the skin youthful-looking and healthy. 


Yes, absolutely. It can be safely combined with other treatments to boost the results even further. One of the treatments that can accompany HydraFacial is LED light therapy. For example, blue light helps with acne breakouts, while red light reduces fine lines and wrinkles.

Other treatments that can be combined with HydraFacial are micro-needling, radiofrequency, mesotherapy and microdermabrasion. 

HydraFacial can also be done as a stand-alone treatment, which makes it a lunch break treatment as it lasts only for 30-60 minutes.

After the treatment, the patient can continue with daily activities since there is no downtime required. The patient can even put on makeup right away, but usually, most patients choose not to, because they want to enjoy the freshness. 

The patient shouldn’t experience any major side effects after the treatment. For the aftercare, it is only recommended not to have exfoliating treatments for a few days post-procedure. 


What’s brilliant about this treatment is that the results are noticed after just one treatment session. The hydration and nourishment of the skin bring back vibrancy, smoothness and radiance to the patient’s complexion. Also, fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes and pigmentation can be improved. The results of cleansing, extraction and nourishing serums can last for 7 or more days. The treatment is perfect before important events like weddings or parties because it provides instant results. 

If the patient gets HydraFacial treatments regularly, the results can be prolonged and overall skin health can be significantly improved. 


If the patient hasn’t had a HydraFacial before, it is beneficial to have 2 to 3 sessions a month for at least 3 months. After that, better skin health is established so it is enough to get the treatment once a month. 

However, it all depends on the patient’s skin type and concerns. It is best to have an initial consultation with the skin therapist, who can advise the patient on the proper frequency of the sessions. 


This treatment is becoming more and more popular because it is non-invasive and gentle but also very effective and provides wonderful results. There is no need for downtime or taking off time from social events or work. It is a very quick treatment and can virtually be done during lunch break.

What makes HydraFacial treatment unique is the Vortex-Fusion delivery of serums. The patented spiral design helps with the cleansing, exfoliation and peeling of dead skin cells and impurities. At the same time, it fuses the skin with nutrients like peptides, antioxidants and hyaluronic acid. These powerful nutrients provide instant and long-lasting results. 

It can be done on any skin type and most skin conditions because it is non-irritating and doesn’t cause significant side effects. It is suitable for sensitive, acne-prone, oily or dry skin. 

It is much less invasive than standard facial treatments like chemical peels, laser resurfacing and others. It doesn’t leave the skin irritated or red for days after the procedure. Because of its gentle nature, HydraFacial is suitable for both adults and teens. 

The benefits of HydraFacial treatment like cleansing, peeling, hydrating, can address a lot of different aesthetic and medical skin concerns like fine lines, large pores, breakouts or dull-looking skin. 

The results are always consistent and immediate. Each HydraFacial provides a high-quality treatment that gives immediately seen improvement. Therefore HydraFacial is a great option for restoring the radiant glow of the skin before important social events. 

HydraFacial treatment is suitable for both men and women especially if they are very busy and don’t want to spend time on recovery. 

The skin is the largest organ and deserves to be taken care of both for beauty and for health. When the skin is radiant and beautiful it is empowering and helps the patients restore their confidence and enjoy their life more. 

Including HydraFacial in a regular skincare routine is one step closer to youthful-looking, healthy and luminous skin.
