Hydration is important for the health of many parts of the body, and the skin is no exception. Hydrating, cleansing, and exfoliating the skin not only ensures your skin looks its best; it also improves your skin health. But you don’t have to follow multiple skincare steps to achieve the best-looking skin. You simply need to have a Hydrafacial at Dr. Andrews Plastic Surgery. The treatment will cleanse, exfoliate, and hydrate your skin in one session.

What is a Hydrafacial?

A Hydrafacial is a multi-step noninvasive treatment using a specialized wand that works like a vacuum to open the pores to prepare the skin for a deep cleanse and extraction of dead skin cells. It also hydrates the skin with serums, antioxidants, and peptides. It can be customized to meet your exact skin needs. The treatment can minimize redness, dryness, and wrinkles, and improve skin firmness and texture.

Who is a Good Candidate for a Hydrafacial?

Hydrafacials are appropriate for most people. It works on all skin types, including sensitive skin. This treatment can be customized to you and your needs, and it’s much gentler than other treatments like deep chemical peels and laser treatments.

Some of the skin concerns Hydrafacial can address include:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Dark spots
  • Redness
  • Dry skin
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Acne
  • Large pore size

Those who may not be ideal candidates for this treatment include people with chronic rosacea and severe acne. During your consultation, you’ll want to discuss any medical conditions or allergies you have.

The Hydrafacial Procedure

The Hydrafacial procedure is made up of three steps, and all are done using a specialized wand. It begins with cleansing and exfoliating your skin with a gentle peel to reveal a new layer of skin hiding underneath the dead skin cells and dirt on the surface. The exfoliation is done using water pressure and a textured wand tip. Chemical exfoliation is also part of this step and uses glycolic or salicylic acid. 

The next step is to extract any impurities by using suction, which also improves circulation in the skin. Finally, moisturizers and serums are applied to the skin to saturate it with hydration.

In total, the whole treatment takes about 30-90 minutes, depending on your skin concerns. It’s completely pain-free and comes with no downtime.


After a Hydrafacial treatment, you will notice immediate results. Your skin will look and feel smoother, softer, and more hydrated. You may notice some slight redness or puffiness, but that is temporary. You can return to your normal routine immediately. You will want to avoid exfoliating treatments for the first few days after a Hydrafacial.

We recommend getting a Hydrafacial about once a month to maintain the results, but your provider may recommend having them more often if needed for your skin health.
