What Is a HydraFacial?
As the latest innovation in skincare, the HydraFacial is a top-seller among skincare enthusiasts because of the instant, vibrant glow it gives your complexion. But, what is a HydraFacial and what makes it unique? A HydraFacial is a 5-step facial that gives you a radiant, youthful glow using a combination of gentle extractions, exfoliation, cleansing chemical peels, and hydrating serums.
The HydraFacial is a versatile treatment that is customized to treat anyone’s unique skin concerns, such as acne, hyperpigmentation, or fine lines and wrinkles. At The Institute of Aesthetic Surgery, we even offer 6 different HydraFacial treatments that are uniquely designed to target and address a wide variety of cosmetic concerns, making it an ideal treatment for just about anyone looking for a flawless complexion.
5 Steps to Flawless Skin
So, what is a HydraFacial and how does it work? Keep reading to find out how each step of the HydraFacial works to give you a youthful, radiant complexion.
Step 1: Vortex Exfoliation
First the skin is thoroughly cleansed and prepped using exfoliating serums. During this stage, dead skin cells are sloughed off to prep your skin for the rest of the treatment. Unlike other facials, here are no pore-softening steams used at this stage, which may be the magic behind HydraFacial’s post-treatment glow.
Some experts say steams can exacerbate post-treatment redness by dilating the blood vessels, and without the addition of redness-inducing steams, HydraFacials give you a unique glow minus the irritation.
Step 2: Vortex Peel
After your skin is cleansed and exfoliated, your technician infuses the skin with a blend of salicylic acid, glycolic acid, and botanical extracts to finish clearing away dead skin cells and loosening pores. The gentle peel delivers all the benefits of a deeper chemical peel with no peeling or scaling, while thoroughly exfoliating the skin to help the hydrating serums deeply penetrate the skin for a long-lasting glow.
Step 3: Vortex Extraction
Using a unique dual-chamber device, gentle extractions deeply clean the pores of dead skin cells, sebum, and acne-causing bacteria. Unlike the manual extractions that are done by hand, the HydraFacial extracts gunk from deep under the surface of the skin using gentle suction. At the same time, the dual-chamber pumps soothing, hydrating serums into the freshly cleared pores for maximum hydration and comfort.
Because soothing serums are deposited at the same time as the extractions, there is absolutely no pain involved during the process. This unique process allows even those with the most sensitive skin to get a deep clean with no pain or inflammation.
Step 4: Vortex Serum Boost
At this stage, your technician will calibrate the treatment to address your biggest concerns, such as acne, wrinkles, or hyperpigmentation. The specially crafted formula will then be applied to the face and deeply massaged into the skin.
Step 5: Vortex Fusion
To top off the treatment for long-lasting radiance, a combination of collagen-building peptides, nourishing antioxidants, and hydrating hyaluronic acid is massaged into the skin for immediate vibrancy.
After this stage, your technician can also apply an LED blue light to further soothe inflammation and kill acne-causing bacteria or an LED red light to further stimulate collagen production and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Top 7 Things a HydraFacial Can Do for Your Skin
HydraFacials are a universally adored treatment with a myriad of benefits to experience. Keep reading to discover the top 7 ways a HydraFacial can rejuvenate your skin today.
1. Deeply Cleanses Pores Without Irritation
A HydraFacial can deeply cleanse pores without irritating sensitive skin, making it a dream treatment for people who cannot tolerate manual extractions. Deeply cleaning the pores completely eliminates blackheads and milia for an instantly smooth complexion, minus the inflammation and redness that usually comes with extractions or chemical peels.
2. Provides Long-Lasting Moisture & Hydration
The HydraFacial drives hydrating serums deep into the skin to give you a long-lasting glow. Many people with acne-prone skin are scared of using enough moisturizers because they don’t want their skin to break out, leading to dull, lifeless skin. A HydraFacial rejuvenates your skin from the inside out and deeply nourishes dry skin to reveal a hydrated, radiant glow.
3. Minimizes Fine Lines & Wrinkles
Not only do the anti-aging serums and collagen-stimulating peptides help your skin stay wrinkle-free, but the dual-chamber HydraFacial vacuum helps to circulate blood flow throughout your face, which helps your skin retain its youthful glow. Poor circulation is a leading cause of facial wrinkles, and regular massages and stimulation to get your blood flowing freely is a great way to take a preventative stand against the visible signs of aging.
4. 100% Customized to Your Skin Type & Concerns
Unlike other skincare treatments, the HydraFacial is not a one-size-fits-all treatment. Each treatment is specially designed with your unique skin concerns in mind, and your skilled technician will work with you to develop a unique combination of active ingredients that will provide you with the biggest benefit. Reversing the signs of aging, eliminating hyperpigmentation, and soothing break-outs are all possible with just one single treatment.
5. Provides Instantly Flawless Results
The most unique feature of a HydraFacial is how instantaneous the results are. We all know the familiar post-treatment red glow following a chemical peel or manual extractions, but because the HydraFacial is soothing rather than irritating, it leaves no visible signs of irritation behind. A HydraFacial gives you event-ready skin immediately after your appointment ends, making it the perfect treatment before big events or weddings.
6. Rejuvenating & Relaxing Experience
Unfortunately, we’ve all grown accustomed to the necessary pain that comes with beauty treatments, like rough extractions or burning chemical peels. But with the HydraFacial, beauty is no longer pain. Instead, it’s a relaxing experience that feels more like a spa treatment than your standard, irritating skincare treatment.
7. Boosts Collagen Production
Collagen production starts to decrease around the age of 25, and for those of you that want to stay on top of your skin, Hydrafacials are a great place to start. Peptides are the building blocks of collagen production, and having them deeply infused into the skin can help keep your body produce the collagen you need to keep your smooth, youthful skin.
