Pre-Treatment Guide For HydraFacial

What is HydraFacial?

HydraFacial is a highly popular treatment that deeply cleanses, exfoliates, extracts, and hydrates the skin utilizing super serums filled with antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid. This customizable treatment utilizes medical-grade products, including SkinCeuticals, ZO Skin Health, and others. HydraFacials are effective in addressing various skin concerns such as brown spots, acne, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, and more. You also have the option to add boosters that target specific needs, such as firming, clarifying, brightening, and reducing redness. Eye and lip add-ons are also available.

How to Prepare for a HydraFacial Treatment:

To ensure the best possible results from your HydraFacial treatment, follow these guidelines prior to your appointment:

  • Avoid excess sun exposure, including tanning beds for 1 week before treatment, and use SPF 30 or greater daily to ensure coverage against UVB and UBA rays.
  • Do not use any type of exfoliants 2 days before treatment.
  • Refrain from any chemical peels or lasers for 2 weeks prior.
  • Discontinue use of Tretinoin type products (Renova, Tretinoin, Retin A, Retin A Micro, Tri-Luma, Solage, etc.) at least 2 days before treatment.
  • Discontinue use of Hydroquinone 2-3 days before treatment.
  • Wait 2 weeks after Botox and filler treatments to have a HydraFacial treatment.

What to Expect During Your HydraFacial Treatment:

During your HydraFacial treatment, a specialized device will be used to cleanse, exfoliate, and infuse your skin with intensive serums. The treatment begins with a gentle tool that opens the pores and removes superficial debris from the skin. It is followed by a deeper extraction of stubborn debris using a specially designed vacuum tool that suctions the areas effectively. Once the skin is prepped, cleaned, and free from dirt and oils, the HydraFacial device will be used to infuse customized products tailored to your specific goals and needs. The treatment typically takes around 30 minutes, providing near-instantaneous results of deeply cleansed, stimulated, and hydrated skin.
