Am I A Candidate for a HydraFacial?
HydraFacials are designed to be suitable for women and men of all skin types and ages. The treatment can be customized to meet your specific needs. Complexion problems that may be treated with a HydraFacial are:
- Brown or sun spots
- Chronic or infrequent outbreaks of acne
- Decreased skin firmness or elasticity
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Congested or large pores
- Oily or greasy skin
- Rough skin texture
- Uneven or dull skin tone
HydraFacials are performed in one of our private treatment rooms in about 30 – 45 minutes. The facial will start with an initial consultation to determine the best options for your HydraFacial. Once your plan is developed, you may lie back in one of our treatment rooms as your procedure begins. HydraFacials use six main steps: cleansing, exfoliation, pore extraction, hydration, a nourishing serum, and protection for your skin. These parts are personalized to your skin's needs with the best cleanser, level of exfoliation, moisturizers, serums, and other products. Your HydraFacial can be further personalized by adding on another complementary facial treatment, like a chemical peel.
What to Expect After a HydraFacial
If needed, you will be able to reapply cosmetics after your HydraFacial treatment to conceal mild redness before you return to your daily routine. You will likely have visible skin improvements right after your procedure with final results in several days. To sustain the improvements to your complexion, Dr. Gallegos and his aesthetic team suggest getting these treatments at monthly intervals. In your consultation, we can schedule ongoing appointments and discuss creating a home skin care routine to best maintain your complexion in between HydraFacial appointments.
frequently asked questions
What are the HydraFacial results like?
Considered an excellent treatment, a HydraFacial can be included in your regular facial care regimen. Although traditional facials are effective, the HydraFacial elevates the process one step further by cleansing your pores, allowing for a much deeper level of cleaning. Based on your unique skin condition, our team can add specialized elements into the facial to improve certain skin issues.
Can I combine a HydraFacial with other treatments?
Several of our patients combine their HydraFacial with other different treatments, which can be performed within the same treatment. These treatments could include dermal fillers, BOTOX, or a laser peel. Adding these skin rejuvenation treatments can allow for even more optimal outcomes.
How often should I receive a HydraFacial?
Able to be performed as often as you feel your skin needs the improvement, HydraFacials can be scheduled within a couple of months apart and supplemented with traditional facials in between. In your initial consultation, our aesthetic team can talk with you about how often you should receive a HydraFacial in order to preserve your desired results.
Is a HydraFacial better than a chemical or laser peel?
While all of these treatments prove to be effective, they serve varying purposes. You can receive these treatments at various times of the year to achieve great results. However, the HydraFacial may be provided more often and can become a more regular part of your routine.
