If you’re bothered by acne, sun damage, or fine lines, it may be time to schedule Hydrafacial® treatment. Learn what this popular treatment can do for your complexion in 30-60 minutes.

Nearly everyone experiences acne, age-related skin issues, or both at some point. In fact, some 50 million Americans live with acne. And around age 25, complaints like age- or sun-related dryness and fine lines start cropping up.

If you long for a smoother, more radiant complexion, Hydrafacial® may be just what the dermatologist ordered. 

Our expert team at Limmer Dermatology in San Antonio, Texas, offers this noninvasive cosmetic treatment to rejuvenate your skin in just 30-60 minutes. 

Let’s delve into Hydrafacial, including what to expect and benefits to look forward to.

What Hydrafacial treats

Hydrafacial cleans, exfoliates, and hydrates your skin. As a result, it can address a range of common skin complaints and conditions, including:

  • Acne
  • Brown (aka “sun” or “aging”) spots
  • Dry, dull skin
  • Enlarged pores
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Oily or congested pores
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Rosacea
  • Rough skin texture

You can expect the benefits of routine facials, only revved up for more dramatic results. 

How Hydrafacial works

Hydrafacial deeply cleanses the layers of your skin where acne and age-related changes occur. Meanwhile, it supplies helpful nutrients and nourishment that promote optimal skin health. 

To accomplish this, Hydrafacial uses Vortex-Fusion technology, combining its unique spiral design with gentle suction to deep-clean your pores, exfoliate damaged skin cells, and infuse moisture and nutrients deep below the surface.

Hydrafacial treatment involves three main steps, including:

Cleansing and peeling

To kick off your treatment, water is used to deeply cleanse your pores and loosen up debris and dead skin cells. Special solutions dissolve and break up oily debris trapped inside your pores, while exfoliating agents tackle the uppermost layers of dull, dead skin.

Extracting and hydrating

In this step, Hydrafacial takes that cleansing further. Using gentle suction, the spiral device removes the loosened debris and dead skin cells. From there, special moisturizers rehydrate your skin.

Infusing for protection

In the last step, Hydrafacial delivers a blend of antioxidants and other nutrients based on your unique needs. Thanks to the deep cleansing and extraction you’ve just had, your complexion easily absorbs those nutrients at a deep level. 

After Hydrafacial treatment

Because Hydrafacial is noninvasive, you can go about your usual daily activities afterward — no downtime required. You may notice some redness or swelling immediately following your treatment, but most side effects are mild and diminish quickly. 

While you can benefit from a single Hydrafacial treatment, some people notice maximum results after a series of treatments. Depending on the specifics of your skin, we may recommend waiting 2-4 weeks between treatments.
