What is HydraFacial MD?
The HydraFacial MD treatment is a new breakthrough in aesthetic technology. It takes its name from the root word Hydrate; “to cause to take up moisture”. This ability to moisturize the skin separates the HydraFacial™ from all other skin resurfacing procedures. The HydraFacial MD 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.
Am I a candidate for HydraFacial MD treatment?
The HydraFacial™ treatment is designed for everyone of all skin types and skin colour. Even the most sensitive skin easily tolerates the HydraFacial™ treatment. Your skincare professional may choose specific treatment serums and/or customize the treatment for your unique skin conditions and needs. Consult us a free skin evaluation and sensitivity test.
How long does the treatment take? Is there any downtime or pain involved?
The HydraFacial™ treatment is a fast, efficient treatment that takes as little as 30-45 minutes. The treatment is often described as feeling like a wet micodermabrasion. Your skin may be pink or slightly red after the treatment, but there is no downtime so you may return to your normal activities immediately after. We always protect the skin with a physical sun protection (titanium and zinc), which helps to minimize any redness quicker.
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. 1 treatment per month is recommended for improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, oily and congested skin. Continued HydraFacial™ treatments are highly recommended to maintain results. Depending on the person, an initial series of treatments to provide a correction may be recommended.

Free Radicals & The Role of Antioxidants
Everyday our skin is exposed to the elements – stress, pollution, toxins, and most importantly, sunlight. These are known as free radicals, and they are the root of skin damage and aging. Free radicals destroy the chemical makeup of our skin cells, preventing them from functioning properly, causing our skin to deteriorate. The most natural defense against free radical damage is antioxidants – they neutralize free radicals, restoring and protecting skin from damage. Antioxidants are vital in the pursuit for healthy skin. This is why the HydraFacial MD is so important – not only does it remove surface damage such as dead skin cells and impurities, but it also replenishes the skin with antioxidants through Vortex-Fusion®.
