Let’s learn more about what Hydrafacials can do for you.

What is a Hydrafacial®?

Unlike regular facials, Hydrafacials® use a vacuum suction wand to deeply cleanse the skin by opening the pores, extracting impurities, and exfoliating dead skin cells – all in one session. The vacuum suction wand is what’s known as a hydradermabrasion device. Unlike traditional microdermabrasion, which can be abrasive on some skin types, the Hydrafacial® technology cleanses your pores while moisturizing and protecting your skin.

Due to its hydrating qualities, Hydrafacials® are safe for most skin types. You may also receive booster serums with your Hydrafacial®. Serums delivered at the end are one of the factors that set Hydrafacials® apart from other skin treatments like microdermabrasion and really give patients that post-treatment glow along with lasting skin correction.

What to Expect
From a Hydrafacial®

There are three distinct steps to a Hydrafacial. Here’s what to expect from each of them

Exfoliation

Exfoliation is the process of removing a layer of dead skin cells. It’s done across many aesthetic treatments for its known benefits, like promoting cellular turnover and revealing brighter skin, clearing debris out of the pores, and even stimulating collagen production over time. In a Hydrafacial®, the Vortex technology delivered by tips on the handheld treatment device generates swirling fluid while the vacuum suction removes dead skin cells. This allows for an effective yet gentle exfoliation.

Hydrate and Extract

Your aesthetician will then use the Hydrafacial® treatment device to open your pores and remove debris while delivering moisturizers to the skin.

Infuse with Serums

With the Deluxe and Platinum packages, your Hydrafacial® experience includes serums selected for your particular skin concerns, also called boosters. These may be aimed at reducing fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, large pores, acne, or dull skin.

Benefits of a Hydrafacial®

Thicker, Healthier Hair

Hydrafacials® work to stimulate hair growth and health for nearly everyone. Even if you aren’t actively struggling with hair loss, each of us deals with distressed hair from daily living. Many of us have product buildup in hair follicles or have itchy, dry, and flaky scalps. A Hydrafacial® can promote healthy hair follicles, prevent hair thinning and loss, and prevent dandruff with those of us who still have our luscious locks. And for clients struggling with thinning or balding, Hydrafacials® promote growth, nourish the scalp, and complement other hair restoration treatments. Most importantly, you’ll experience increased confidence from having healthier, happier hair.

Improved Hydration and Overall Skin Tone

Philadelphia Facial Plastic Surgery & Medspa picks active ingredients to use in our Hydrafacials® that can increase skin hydration over time and improve the look of your skin, especially if you consistently get Hydrafacial® treatments. Our serums are designed to target your skincare needs while deeply hydrating and providing comprehensive skincare with ingredients like gold-stabilized Vitamin C.

Healthier Skin and Increased Collagen Production

What makes Hydrafacials® different is the delivery of customized serums at the end of treatment. The booster serums aren’t just effective in immediately giving you the glow that Hydrafacials® are known for – they’re effective in building stronger skin over time such as boosting long-term collagen production or reducing excessive pigment.

Preliminary studies show that the use of serums post microdermabrasion treatment show increased skin thickness, antioxidant levels, and fibroblasts – the cells that make collagen. The makers of Hydrafacial backs these findings up, with their 2023 report showing the same results. Hydrafacials® don’t just make you look better – they’re a long-term solution for better skin health.

Target Concerns of a Hydrafacial®

Philadelphia Facial Plastic Surgery & Medspa offers five unique serums that can be used during your hydrafacial® to target different skin concerns like hyperpigmentation, aging, and overall skin tone. 

Hydrafacial Restore™

Dedicated to sustaining the appearance of healthy, youthful skin, supporting optimal hydration, and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, this Hydrafacial booster is perfect for those seeking anti-aging solutions.

Key ingredients include peptides that help minimize fine lines, plump,hydrate, and firm the skin. Niacinamide also helps with pore minimizing.

ZO® Brightalive®

This advanced formula is designed to diminish the visibility of brown spots, achieve an even skin tone, prevent the formation of new pigmentation, and restore essential hydration for a balanced and revitalized complexion.

The blend of skin brighteners works to inhibit pigmentation production, while glycerin ensures hydration, replenishment, and retention.

Circadia® ProTec Plus

Providing protection against free radical damage, this booster ensures optimal hydration and diminishes visible signs of redness. Remember that while regular facials can provide noticeable improvements in your skin's condition, it is important to combine them with a consistent at-home skincare routine for optimal results. We can recommend some of our handpicked skincare brands for you to try out.

Murad® Vita-C

Accelerating skin surface renewal, this booster minimizes the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation while brightening and smoothing the skin.

Key ingredients include gold-stabilized Vitamin C for increased potency, glycolic acid for soothing and brightening, tranexamic acid for minimizing hyperpigmentation, and RepleniCell™ technology for younger-looking skin through hydration.

Hydrafacial® Keravive Peptide Complex Booster

This specialized Hydrafacial booster focuses on cleansing, exfoliating, and hydrating the scalp and hair follicles. It effectively removes impurities while stimulating scalp circulation. The infusion of a proprietary blend of synthetic growth factors and skin proteins, along with panthenol (Vitamin B5 derivative) and arginine, promotes the appearance of fuller hair.

Hydrafacials can make you glow from head to toe, boosting your confidence from better hair to radiant skin.
