What is HydraFacial?

HydraFacial is one of the most gentle and relaxing facial treatments available. This is a hybrid facial treatment that combines elements of traditional facials, microdermabrasion, and skincare infusions. During this treatment, a Vortex-Fusion® serum delivery system is used to cleanse, extract, and exfoliate your skin, thus opening up the clogged pores. Once your skin’s pores are de-clogged and open, antioxidants and peptides are used to revitalize your complexion. This is a simple, 3-step process without any downtime or harsh side effects.

Your HydraFacial Journey


Your HydraFacial journey starts with a thorough consultation with our cosmetic providers. As mentioned previously, HydraFacial is a highly personalized treatment, and it can be modified with numerous upgrades and enhancements, such as LED light therapy, lymphatic drainage, and more. Our cosmetic providers analyze your skin conditions and requirements to recommend the ideal HydraFacial experience for you.


The specific details of the HydraFacial treatment differ from one individual to the next, according to their unique skin requirements and conditions. However, all HydraFacial treatments involve three core steps, highlighted below.

  1. Cleanse + Peel: The uppermost layers of the skin are gently exfoliated to remove the dead skin cells, debris, and damaged skin, thus revealing smoother, brighter skin underneath.
  2. Extract + Hydrate: A unique suction tool is used to remove the debris, excess oil, makeup residue, and other impurities from the clogged skin pores. Once the pores are cleansed, a unique blend of moisturizers is applied to revitalize the skin.
  3. Fuse + Protect: A unique blend of skincare formulations, including peptides, antioxidants, vitamins, hyaluronic acid, and more, are applied to the skin to enhance your glow.


HydraFacial doesn’t involve an extended recovery period or downtime. Your skin might look a little flushed, but there are no major side effects. You can resume your daily activities and work, and you may resume strenuous physical activities the next day. That’s why HydraFacial is ideal for clients just before major events or photoshoots — it gives you an instant glow without harsh side effects. You can also repeat the treatment once every month.
