Over time, it is not unusual for people both men and women, to develop fine wrinkles and large pores. Triggered by repeated exposure to the elements, sun damage, smoking, and genetics, a decrease in the skin’s tone and texture can add unwarranted years onto a person’s appearance. Dr. Joshua Kreithen and Dr. J. David Holcomb are excited to provide patients with one of the newest innovations to rejuvenate the skin’s appearance. The HydraFacial is a non-laser, noninvasive treatment designed to resurface the skin, while gently washing the pores, and hydrating the face.
Patients can see substantial results with a HydraFacial procedure. Fine lines can be eliminated, dark spots lightened, and acne breakouts/scarring will fade. Unsightly large, congested pores will addressed; and dull, dry skin will look moisturized and healthy. Pores will be clean, inhibiting the formation of new acne, and the skin noticeably softer.
How does the HydraFacial work? Through a one of a kind spiral design, an individualized combination of nutrients and hydrating serums are applied, all while undergoing a deep cleaning process. By cleansing and exfoliating the skin at the same time as infusing highly beneficial products, the HydraFacial can quickly perk up damaged skin, restoring a youthful appearance.
The ideal candidate for a HydraFacial will be a man or woman, frustrated with a change in the skin’s appearance. Appropriate for all skin types and complexion shade, the HydraFacial is also safe for sensitive skin. The clinicians at Holcomb and Kreithen will create a unique blend of serums specifically designed for a specific patient’s needs.
The HydraFacial Procedure:
A HydraFacial will take about 15 to 20 minutes in our office suite. Patients do not feel any pain or discomfort. Generally, a HydraFacial procedure is similar to a cool paintbrush moving slowly and gently across the face. As the procedure is noninvasive, patients can resume normal activities immediately afterward.
Results from a HydraFacial:
Patients generally report noticeable skin changes after the first treatment. Results will last from five to seven days. Six weekly treatments will be needed at the start, to provide optimal results; after which time patients should undergo repeat treatments every four to six weeks.
The HydraFacial requires no downtime; patients are able to return to work or school that same afternoon. Makeup can be worn immediately after a treatment, as well. Some patients do notice some redness after the procedure, but this should decrease over the first hour or two. It is vital to avoid the sun for the next several days; patients should wear sunscreen daily.
The HydraFacial is available today at Holcomb and Kreithen Plastic Surgery and MediSpa, as well as a variety of other facial rejuvenation procedures. Our office is centrally located in beautiful Sarasota, Florida; with easy access for patients across the state and across the country. Call 941.365.8679 to schedule your consultation appointment.

HydraFacial Non-Laser Skin Resurfacing
HydraFacial is the latest development in non-laser, minimally invasive skin resurfacing. Dr. Kreithen is pleased to offer HydraFacial to his Bradenton / Sarasota cosmetic surgery patients who wish to reduce the visible signs of aging from the face.
What Is HydraFacial?
The HydraFacial system is the only hydradermabrasion system on the market that provides numerous skin treatments simultaneously, including:
- Antioxidant protection
The HydraFacial treatment tool contains a unique spiral design that infuses the skin with nutrients and hydrating serums at the same time that it cleanses and softens sebum and impurities. In addition, the HydraFacial device gently exfoliates the skin for an even resurfacing effect.
With HydraFacial, Dr. Kreithen of Holcomb – Kreithen Plastic Surgery and Dermatology can help patients with:
- Oily, acne-prone skin
- Fine lines
- Brown spots
- Congested, enlarged pores
The HydraFacial treatment can reduce the appearance of fine lines from your face, lighten your dark spots and reduce acne. After treatment, your pores will be cleaner and your skin softer.
Who Is a Candidate for HydraFacial?
HydraFacial is tolerated by patients with all types and shades of skin, even those with extremely sensitive skin. Clinicians at Holcomb – Kreithen Plastic Surgery and Dermatology & Skin Care will properly custom-blend serums for your unique skin type and conditions.
How Long Does the Treatment Take?
HydraFacial is a fast, efficient treatment that takes only 15 to 20 minutes and produces no discomfort. Many patients describe the treatment as feeling like a “cool paintbrush moving slowly over the face.” HydraFacial requires no downtime; you can put on makeup and resume your normal everyday activities immediately following treatment. 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.
What Results Can I Expect and How Long Will They Last?
Many patients report positive results after just one treatment. The smoothing, hydrating results can last five to seven days or even longer. A series of six weekly treatments is recommended for most patients. To maintain the results of treatment, it is often beneficial to undergo follow-up treatments every two to four weeks.
