The Hype on HydraFacial

The Hype on HydraFacial

By Rhonda Klein, MD, MPH, FAAD

Heard about HydraFacial, but not sure what it is exactly? Let us fill you in!

HydraFacial is a unique, power-house facial treatment that combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration and antioxidant protection all at once. After you slip into one of our cozy robes (optional) one of our talented aestheticians, Suzanne Wilson or Jetmira (Jett) Emini, will assess your skin and recommend customizations to your HydraFacial in order for it to be most effective. 

How it Works

HydraFacial uses patented Vortex-Fusion® technology to cleanse, extract and hydrate. That is achieved through the following stages of the treatment:

  • Cleansing and exfoliation: a gentle lactic acid serum gets rid of dirt and dead skin cells, leaving skin smoother and brighter

  • Brightening agent: a gentle blend of salicylic and glycolic acid further exfoliates the skin and unclogs the pores, prepping skin for the next stage

  • Extraction: gentle suction removes blackheads 

  • Hydration: a curated cocktail of hyaluronic acid, peptides and antioxidants provides hydration and “plumps up” the skin

  • Rejuvenation: red and infrared LED light reduces redness and boosts the production of collagen


The HydraFacial “Perk” is a separate adaptor we can use to target the Face, Lip or Eye area. 

  • Face - works by gently cleansing and replenishing skin with potent antioxidants to reveal a gorgeous, healthy glow.

  • Lip - exfoliates and perfectly primes lips with key ingredients such as peppermint oil and peony extract that lightly plumps the pout.

  • Eye - awakens the delicate eye area to help gently brighten, tone and firm the outer eye area while maintaining hydration.
