The Traditional Facial

Any facial will consist of a customized mask that will cleanse your pores, exfoliate dead skin cells, and treat other concerns you might have.

With a traditional facial, a skincare specialist first cleans your face by gently massaging a cleanser to your face and neck to remove any traces of dirt or makeup. They remove the cleanser with warm water and a soft cloth or cotton pad, then proceed to buff away dead skin cells with an exfoliating cream or scrub.

An extraction is then performed to remove the excess oil or dead skin cells from pores that have become very clogged.

Typically, the final step of a facial is a massage that works to improve the lymphatic drainage in your body.

So How Is a HydraFacial Different?

In a nutshell, the biggest difference is that a HydraFacial adds the nourishing benefits of microdermabrasion. With microdermabrasion, your skincare specialist infuses a serum to gently remove the outer layer of your skin and extract even more impurities while removing dead skin cells.

The microdermabrasion process has three steps and there are definitely similarities between a HydraFacial treatment and a traditional facial. The HydraFacial procedure commences with having your skin cleaned and exfoliated.

During the extraction process, a light acid peel is applied to dissolve damaged and dead skin cells. A technician uses an extraction nozzle to remove the excess dirt, oil, and other gunk to help open your pores.

After that, your skincare technician uses a tool to infuse a serum that’s been uniquely formulated to address your skin type, as well as your specific issues. The serum also serves to increase elasticity and hydration in your skin.

The whole process takes 30 – 45 minutes and is completely non-invasive. Here is the best part though:

A Single Treatment Delivers Immediate Results

Although it has powerful exfoliating effects, the HydraFacial treatment is gentle and doesn’t involve lasers. Yet, it provides clearer, cleaner, and more vibrant skin immediately. And usually without discomfort or redness.

A HydraFacial can deliver the following results:


  • Improved skin tone and texture
  • Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Shrinkage of enlarged pores
  • Increased elasticity and firmness
  • Decreased brown spots or other discoloration
  • Manageability for oily skin

Plus, you’re able to reapply makeup and take part in regular activities immediately after your HydraFacial session, while experiencing visible results instantly.

There isn’t much you can say THAT about anymore.
