Frequently Asked Questions

What is a HydraFacial ?

The HydraFacialTM treatment is a new breakthrough in aesthetic technology. It takes its name from the root word Hydrate; “to cause to take up moisture”. This Outdoor beauty portrait of casual young woman with beautiful smiability to moisturize the skin separates the HydraFacialTM from all other skin resurfacing procedures. The HydraFacialTM treatment removes dead skin cells and extracts impurities while simultaneously bathing the new skin with cleansing, hydrating, and moisturizing serums. The treatment is soothing, refreshing, non-irritating and immediately effective. The superior delivery system allows the serums to reduce the appearance of skin concerns almost instantly.

The HydraFacial® treatment consists of five steps. These steps include:

  • Vortex-Exfoliation™ – The first step uses Activ-4™ serum to help remove dead skin cells.
  • Vortex-Peel™ – A mixture of Glycolic and Salicylic Acids, called Glysal™ serum, delivers the benefits of a peel without the risk of scarring.
  • Vortex-Extraction™ – Specialized vortex-suction removes dirt and bacteria from pores using Beta-HD™ serum.
  • Vortex-Fusion™ – The skin is nourished and protected using Antiox+™ serum, made up of antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid.
  • Extend and Protect – Results can be maintained at home using pharmaceutical grade skin care products.

Why is HydraFacialTM good for my skin?

Hydration is the foundation of healthy, radiant skin. Irritation of the skin has been proven to increase signs of aging. The HydraFacialTM is a hydrating and non-irritating treatment.

Am I a candidate for this treatment?

The HydraFacialTM treatment is designed for all skin types. Even the most sensitive skin easily tolerates the HydraFacialTM treatment. Dr. Johnston and our aesthetician may choose specific treatment serums and/or customer the treatment for your unique skin conditions and needs. Our aesthetician will conduct a skin evaluation and sensitivity test to determine your treatment options as well.

How long does the treatment take? Is there any downtime or pain involved?

The HydraFacialTM treatment is a fast, efficient treatment that takes as little as 30 minutes. The treatment is often described as a feeling like “a cool paintbrush moving over the face”. You may put on make-up and return to your normal activities right after the treatment since there is minimal downtime.

What results may be expected? How many treatments are needed to see results? How long do the results last?

Many people report seeing visible skin refinement and an even, radiant skin tone after just one treatment. The smooth results and hydration may last 5 to 7 days or even longer. A series of 6 treatments are recommended for improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne and oily skin. After your first series of treatments, you may want to maintain your results with a HydraFacialTM treatment every 2 to 4 weeks.


Why is the HydraFacialTM better than Microdermabrasion?

The HydraFacial is also known as “hydradermabrasion” is similar to microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion used to be considered the most effective method of exfoliation and mild skin rejuvenation. However, microdermabrasion is not recommended for all skin types. People with sensitive or thin skin, Rosacea or ethnic skin are not candidates for microdermabrasion because of the potential reactions such as scaring, hyperpigmentation, and irritation. The HydraFacialTM is a highly effective alternative to microdermabrasion, using the newest form of skin resurfacing technology that is non-invasive.
