What is Hydrafacial?
HydraFacial® is a non-invasive treatment that makes use of award-winning technology to provide numerous beneficial skin treatments in one facial—including cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration, and antioxidant protection. This specialized, medical-grade treatment is gentle, feels amazing, and lasts much longer than regular facials. HydraFacial cleans, brightens, plumps, and protects skin of all ages and types, and is able to address multiple levels of damage.
Next-Generation Design for Advanced Skincare
Through its one-of-a-kind spiral design, the HydraFacial tool infuses an individualized combination of nutrients and hydrating serums into the skin, while simultaneously performing a deep cleansing process. By cleansing and exfoliating the skin while also infusing it with these highly beneficial elements, a HydraFacial can quickly rejuvenate damaged skin, restoring a fresher, more youthful appearance.
The Four-Step Process
HydraFacial’s three powerful steps take your skin from looking tired and dull to looking radiant and glowing. These three steps work hand-in-hand to remove the debris that makes the skin appear dull and tired — and bring it back to life.
- Cleansing and exfoliation eliminate the presence of dead skin cells, sebum, oil, and other debris, while also working to uncover the healthy, glowing layer of skin that lies just beneath the surface.
- An acid peel will then gently bring out the best in your skin, further eliminating impurities and working to nourish each layer.
- Extraction with the HydraFacial tool gently removes the broken-up debris from your pores while simultaneously hydrating your skin.
- Serum application infuses your pores with beneficial antioxidants and peptides, actively restoring your skin’s health and working to keep it protected.
A Quick and Easy Treatment
Your HydraFacial treatment will only take about 30 minutes and will feel very relaxing and refreshing. Most patients compare the feeling of a HydraFacial to a cool paintbrush moving slowly and gently across the face. A HydraFacial also requires no downtime.
You will be able to apply makeup and resume your regular activities immediately afterward. If you have sensitive skin, you may experience redness for about an hour following treatment, and you should avoid the sun for a few days. A HydraFacial provides immediate results after just one treatment, with continuously enhanced improvements over multiple sessions.
What makes Hydrafacial different
Hydrafacial is a treatment that truly elevates facials to another level. Oil, dirt, and other damaging elements are suctioned away while the skin is infused with an antioxidant-rich serum that nourishes, hydrates, heals, and protects the skin. This is what makes Hydrafacial stand out.
Hydrafacial treatments can be personalized to target your specific skin concerns and take as little as 30 minutes — a small amount of time to get big results that are long-lasting. Benefits from typical facials last just a couple days, but benefits from a Hydrafacial in Sarasota will last for weeks.

Patients can see substantial results and get healthier skin with a HydraFacial treatment. This medical-grade facial is in demand because the skin can be so greatly improved. Fine lines are eliminated, dark spots lightened, and acne breakouts and scarring will fade. Large, congested pores will be addressed, and dull, dry skin will look moisturized and radiant.
Pores will be clean, inhibiting the formation of new acne, and the skin noticeably softer. Patients generally report noticeable skin changes after the first treatment, and results last from 5 to 7 days. We recommend six weekly treatments to provide optimal results. After this, it is often beneficial to undergo follow-up treatments every 2 to 4 weeks to maintain the results.

Alternatives to HydraFacial
While HydraFacials elicit amazing results, some people express interest in exploring other options. Among the alternatives to HydraFacial are chemical peels, microneedling, microdermabrasion, and oxygen facials.
Although chemical peels can be irritating and usually require a longer recovery period, they are very effective at reducing acne scars while preventing new breakouts. The treatments vary in strength, and costs can range depending on the depth of the procedure.
In recent years, microneedling has become one of the most popular methods for stimulating skin regeneration. This method employs a device with small spikes that puncture the skin, causing scars to slowly fade away over time.
Traditional dermabrasion treatments use a device with a crystal or diamond tip to exfoliate the skin. While this abrasive technique tends to cause more irritation, it is a more cost-effective option, as sessions range from $75 - $200.
What kind of devices are used in a Hydrafacial?
HydraFacial includes the standing machine itself that connects to a hand-held device that includes a sterilized tip with a specialized spiral design. The hand-held device is about the size of a big magic marker. A warm cloth is also used to cleanse the skin. If you choose to include a peel with your Hydrafacial, the chemical solution for this will also be used.
Is Hydrafacial a good treatment to do before a big event?
Yes, it’s the perfect treatment to have before a big event to help your skin look its most radiant and healthy. Some treatment plans require quite a few sessions, so it’s always best to prepare ahead of time. During your consultation, let us know if you have an upcoming event and we will let you know if your treatments will match that deadline.
Does Hydrafacial improve acne scars?
While HydraFacial does not improve acne scars, it does help prevent them by improving acne.
Is Hydrafacial safe for sensitive skin?
Yes. HydraFacial is safe for sensitive skin because the treatment can be adjusted for all skin types. Some patients with sensitive skin may experience some redness following treatment, but this subsides quickly. If you’re concerned about the sensitivity of your skin, we will be happy to address any concerns during your consultation.
Is Hydrafacial effective for acne?
HydraFacials are excellent for acne because part of the process is that dirt and debris are vacuumed out of the pores. In addition, acne-eliminating serums are infused into the skin to prevent breakouts.
How can I make my Hydrafacial results last longer?
A good home skincare regimen will help Hydrafacial results last longer. For luminous, healthy skin, cleansing, moisturizing, and applying sunscreen every day cannot be stressed enough. Also remember that wearing sunscreen is especially important any time after you have exfoliated your skin.
