Revitalize Your Skin With HydraFacial

Woman with clear skin after getting HydraFacialIf you struggle with oily and congested skin, fine lines and wrinkles, or uneven skin tone, you may have considered skin rejuvenation treatments to help revitalize your appearance and renew your self-confidence. If this sounds like you, one treatment stands above the rest: HydraFacial.

In just 30 to 45 minutes, HydraFacial can give you the best skin of your life with no downtime and without the side effects that can accompany other dermabrasion treatments. At Rebecca Fitzgerald Dermatology, board-certified cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Rebecca Fitzgerald and her team have decades of combined experience. We are committed to delivering results that make you look — and feel — younger.

What is HydraFacial

HydraFacial is an advanced, gentle dermabrasion therapy that uses a patented device to create a suction vortex that sucks away dirt, oil, and dead skin cells. At the same time, it nourishes your skin with moisturizing and cleansing solutions. This last bit is part of what sets HydraFacial apart. It delivers the benefits of a peel or microdermabrasion while simultaneously healing your skin, so you don’t experience side effects.

HydraFacial is a soothing, relaxing treatment that shouldn’t cause the redness, irritation, or swelling that other dermabrasion procedures can. Some patients compare the sensation of HydraFacial to a cat licking their face. You may even fall asleep during your treatment.

Benefits of HydraFacial

HydraFacial is about more than just making you look younger. It holistically improves numerous aspects of your skin health, including:

  • Improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Evening out skin tone
  • Removing dark spots
  • Clearing oily and congested skin
  • Healing inflamed pores
  • Restoring skin firmness and elasticity

HydraFacial Procedure

HydraFacial is a three-step process:

  • Cleanse + Peel: The first step of HydraFacial involves uncovering a new layer of skin through exfoliation and resurfacing. The serums in HydraFacial remove dead skin cells to reveal the beautiful, glowing, healthy skin underneath.
  • Extract + Hydrate: In this step, HydraFacial removes dirt, oil, and other debris from your clogged pores using gentle, painless suction. As it does this, it simultaneously nourishes your skin with antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid.
  • Fuse + Protect: The final step of HydraFacial involves saturating your skin with antioxidants and peptides to maximize your glow.

There is no downtime after HydraFacial. You can apply makeup immediately following treatment. It’s a true “red-carpet ready” procedure, meaning it’s perfect for getting right before events such as weddings, photoshoots, dates, or job interviews.

HydraFacial vs. Microdermabrasion

HydraFacial is far more gentle and far less painful than microdermabrasion or other, similar skin rejuvenation treatments. This is significant for several reasons. First, it means that people with skin too sensitive for other procedures can get HydraFacial.

Second, it means that HydraFacial works equally well on people with skin of color as it does on people with lighter skin. This is crucial, because many microdermabrasion, laser, and chemical peel treatments are far more effective on lighter skin. Some of these treatments may even irritate darker skin.

With HydraFacial, Dr. Fitzgerald can offer any patient of any skin tone the same opportunity — to completely refresh their look in less than an hour.
