Time, gravity, and sun exposure all take a toll on our skin. If you are struggling with skin concerns, including wrinkles, fine lines, acne, large pores, or discoloration, a Hydrafacial® may be the right solution for you.
What Is Hydrafacial®?
Hydrafacial® is a powerful skin resurfacing facial treatment that outperforms other non-invasive skin procedures by combining elements to rejuvenate and refresh the skin. It is a multi-step skin exfoliation treatment that refreshes and rejuvenates your complexion by cleansing, extracting, and hydrating the skin. The Hydrafacial® skin exfoliation treatment can help improve the clarity of the skin and minimize pore size, fine lines, wrinkles, acne, and more.

How Does HydraFacial® Treatment Work?
It all begins with the unique, mechanized Hydrafacial® wand, which is used to deliver each phase of treatment:
1. Cleanse and Exfoliate
First, the wand cleanses the skin by removing oils, dirt, and pollutants. After cleansing, a peel is used to exfoliate the skin and remove dead cells.
During extraction, the device suctions any leftover debris, leaving skin clean, fresh, and clear.
The final step is the application of a powerful, customized antioxidant and peptide-containing moisturizing serum.
What Is Recovery Like After HydraFacial®?
You should expect little to no downtime following a Hydrafacial® treatment. Your face may feel tight, and there may be some redness a few hours after the procedure.
Avoid using skin care products, wearing makeup, or engaging in vigorous exercise for 24 hours following your treatment. Medical-grade skin care is recommended after two days.
How Long Do HydraFacial® Results Last?
Your Hydrafacial® treatment results tend to last between four and six weeks, but because the procedure is non-invasive, you can receive treatments monthly if you choose.
Your Hydrafacial® is customized to treat your specific skin condition(s), so prices will vary. You will receive an accurate quote during your consultation.
Your face may feel pressure from the wand, but it does not cause significant pain. This treatment is very manageable.
Hydrafacial® is non-invasive and uses no complex chemicals in its cleansers or serums, so side effects are rare. However, if you have a rash or active skin condition, you may experience a flare-up.
Allergies can also occur, and Dr. Cohn strongly advises individuals to schedule a consultation so that their skin can be assessed properly before treatment.
