Can I do a Hydrafacial before my Wedding or Special Event?
Yes! At your initial consultation appointment we will evaluate your skin and lifestyle (i.e.- how much sun exposure do you get) and will determine a treatment regimen that will provide the best results. It's always best to prepare ahead of time, so if multiple treatment series are recommended, you'll have time to obtain even better results. We recommend a Hydrafacial 24-48 hours before any big event.
How Often Should I Get a Hydrafacial?
We recommend treatments once per month, but we develop a customized treatment plan for each patient that can be tailored to any budget and may change based on your skin type and goals.

What Should I Expect After a HydraFacial?
After the 3-step process is complete, your skin is exfoliated and resurfaced, leaving you with healthy glowing skin. For 2-4 hours post treatment you may experience redness which will subside. Diligent sunscreen use and sun avoidance for a week after your HydraFacial treatment is essential. To achieve maximum results, ongoing treatments and daily home skin program is recommended. Do not wash your face, show or workout 6 hours post treatment. This may reactivate the peel. Avoid chemical peels, microdermabrasions or dermaplaning for 2 weeks after the procedure. You may experience mild redness for 2-4 hours post treatment, but this will subside You may have flaking on the second or third day after treatment which may last for 1-2 days. This peeling is additional dead skin cells that were released by the chemical peel. Do not pick at the peeling. If persistent or exuberant irritation is present or persists for more than 2 days, call our office for evaluation. Stop all use of Vitamin C, AHAs, Glycolics and other chemical exfoliants for 2 days post treatment. The use of sunscreen following treatment is mandatory. Mineral based sunscreen is preferred. Please use sunscreen for at least 5-7 days following your treatment as you skin is more exposed and more susceptible to damage immediately following the treatment. Please refrain from prolonged direct sun exposure or tanning beds for 2 weeks. It’s best to not apply makeup immediately following the treatment, but it is fine to wear the next day. To achieve maximum results, ongoing treatments and daily home skin program is recommended.
