What Is a HydraFacial?
A Hydrafacial is like a facial, but better! It’s a 30-minute facial procedure that exfoliates dead skin cells, removes them, then fills your pores with serums containing naturally occurring proteins, peptides, and acids using a unique Vortex-Fusion® delivery system.
It’s this multi-step treatment that sets HydraFacial apart from the rest. It cleanses, evenly exfoliates, and extracts impurities and dead skin cells while at the same time replenishing vital nutrients including Antioxidants, Peptides and Hyaluronic Acid.

HydraFacial MD® vs Microdermabrasion
HydraFacial MD®, which is Hydradermabrasion, is a gentler microdermabrasion facial. Its main purpose is to hydrate the skin immediately after removing dead skin cells.
Your pores are first unclogged using a vacuum that sucks up the dirt and oil. Then, the patented Vortex-Fusion® serum delivery system fills your clean pores with serums that contain vital nutrients, antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid. Different serums are used to treat different issues, such as age spots, acne, wrinkles, thin lies, and discoloration.
HydraFacial MD® is perfect for those who find microdermabrasion too painful or irritating. It works on ALL skin types.
Frequently Asked Questions
What does a typical HydraFacial procedure look like?
- A device that looks like an electric toothbrush is used to open up your pores.
- Next comes a salicylic acid peel to de-clog your pores. This peel is much more gentle than a traditional chemical peel.
- Then a vortex-extraction nozzle, which looks and sounds like a vacuum, sucks the dirt and oil out of your pores.
- Finally, the vortex infusion tool fills the empty pores with revitalizing serums.
What should I expect during and after HydraFacial MD®?
Before the treatment begins, the med spa professional tests your skin to see which blend of serums will yield the best results. The process itself is quite pleasant. People often prefer Hydradermabrasion over traditional dermabrasion mostly because of how it feels.
There is no pinching and pulling during a HydraFacial. The vortex-extraction nozzle has a low suction that is more pleasant than painful. Many say it feels like a light massage. The serums cause a momentary tingle as they settle in your pores, but even those with sensitive skin report no burning.
Are there any side effects?
The best part of HydraFacial MD® is the lack of post-session side effects. Some people experience redness and skin tightness for about an hour after the procedure, but those cases are rare. You can resume your normal skin routine immediately after you leave the medspa. Put on makeup without fear of irritation.
