Dr. Hudak on HydraFacial MD
HydraFacial is the only hydradermabrasion procedure that combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration and antioxidant protection simultaneously, resulting in clearer, more beautiful skin with no discomfort or downtime. The treatment is soothing, moisturizing, non-invasive and non-irritating.
Why is HydraFacial good for my skin?
Hydration is the foundation of healthy, radiant skin. Irritation of the skin has been proven to increase signs of aging. HydraFacial is a hydrating and non-irritating treatment.
Am I a candidate for this treatment?
The HydraFacial treatment is designed for all skin types. Even the most sensitive skin easily tolerates the HydraFacial treatment. Your physician or skincare professional may choose specific treatment serums and/or customize the treatment for your unique skin conditions and needs. Consult your physician or skincare professional for a skin evaluation and sensitivity test.
How long does the treatment take? Is there any downtime or pain involved?
The goal is to help support you in a balanced lifestyle. That’s why HydraFacial is a fast, efficient treatment that takes as little as 30 minutes. You may put on makeup and return to your normal activities right after the treatment since there is no downtime.
What results may be expected? How many treatments are needed to see results? How long do the results last?
Many patients 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. This is not a quick fixe, so one treatment per month is recommended for improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots, oily and congested skin. Continued HydraFacial treatments are highly recommended to maintain skin health results.
How much does it cost for Hydrafacial?
As a general rule of thumb, HydraFacials cost anywhere between $150 and $300 per treatment. To compare, microdermabrasion usually ring ups for a bit less, at approximately $75 to $200 per session. These two options are considered some of the more affordable minimally invasive skin treatments on the market.
How often do you get a Hydrafacial?
Ideally you should come in for treatment once every two weeks. Once your skin is in a good place, you could then go on a maintenance program of one HydraFacial a month.
