The Procedure:  Known as a “Celebrity Facial”, Hydrodermabrasion (AquaFacial) is a no-downtime skin resurfacing procedure that combines exfoliation, vacuum extraction, hydration, and serum infusion into one fully customizable treatment for all skin types and conditions (see indications below). It is essentially a facial, peel, microdermabrasion, and hydrating mask all in one. This is the ideal treatment to rejuvenate dry, tired, and dull skin revealing a healthy, radiant skin that glows. Treatments typically take 30 to 45 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment and level of abrasion needed. Certain signature facials, such as the AquaFacial Plus, include additional steps and may take up to 60 minutes.

Indications: This remarkably effective treatment can be modified to target a range of concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, superficial age spots, hyperpigmentation, inconsistent tone & texture, dry/dehydrated skin, acne, or clogged, congested, and enlarged pores.

The AquaFacial is a multi-step treatment, as follows:

          • Prep & Detox   |   This step infuses a preparation serum containing lactic acid, glucosamine, and antioxidants while a gentle spiral vacuum suction increases lymphatic circulation and blood flow to flush away toxins.
          • Cleansing & Exfoliation   |   A vacuum-based hydro-tip of varying abrasion levels will gently smooth away dead skin cells.
          • Unclogging Pores   |  Now that pore-blocking old skin cells have been swept away, a gentle glycolic chemical peel solution (10 – 30%) is applied to break up pore congestion. This will brighten your skin and at the same time prep the pores for the next step.
          • Extraction   |   A salicylic acid solution and the gentle spiral vacuum suction draw out blackheads and other impurities. This is an important step to ensure your pores are clean and able to benefit from the tightening effects of the treatment.
          • Serum Infusion   |    Now that your pores are clear and dead skin cells have been removed, your fresh new skin is ready to be treated. This step nourishes your skin and drenches it with condition-specific topicals, potent antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, and peptides.
          • Rejuvenation   |   Finally, red and infrared LED light is used to soothe skin, reduce redness, inflammation, and acne bacteria. LED light therapy also stimulates the skin’s natural ability to produce collagen and Vitamin D. You will be left with skin that feels soft, smooth, healthy, and invigorated.


to your Aquafacial!

Most people see results immediately after the treatment and their skin may feel smooth and hydrated for one to four weeks with appropriate home care being used to maintain treatment results. Every individual is unique and it is very difficult to predict the results or a specific number of treatments needed to achieve desired results. The outcome of Hydrodermabrasion (AquaFacial) fades with time, so regularly scheduled treatments are highly recommended to achieve and maintain desired results.

The Aquafacial treatment is designed for all skin types including the most sensitive skin. Your practitioner may choose specific treatment serums and/or customize the treatment for your unique skin conditions and needs.

Can I go about my normal nightly skin care routine?
Depends, cleansers or moisturizers containing scrubs, RetinA, or acids of any kind need to be avoided for a few days. A sunscreen with a high SPF is also required for use for at least the first 2 weeks.

Is AquaFacial painful?
No, not at all. In fact, many of our clients fall asleep for it is a relaxing treatment.

Why Is A Aqua Facial Good For My Skin?
Hydration is the foundation of healthy, radiant skin. Irritation and dryness of the skin have been proven to increase the signs of aging. This treatment is non-irritating and hydrating.

How Long Does The Treatment Take? Is There Any Downtime Or Pain Involved?
The Aqua Facial treatment takes as little as 45 minutes. The treatment is often described as feeling like “a cool paintbrush moving over my face”. You may return to your normal activities and wear makeup immediately after the treatment as there is no downtime.

What Results May Be Expected? How Many Treatments Are Needed To See Results? How Long Do The Results Last?
Many people report seeing a visible refinement of the skin and an even, radiant skin tone after just one treatment. The smooth results and hydration may last 5 to 7 days or possibly even longer. A series of six treatments is recommended for improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hyper-pigmentation, acne and oily skin. After your first series of treatments, you may want to maintain your results with a Aqua Facial every 6-8 weeks.

Why Is The AquaFacial Better Than Microdermabrasion?
The AquaFacial is also known as the “Serum-dermabrasion”. Microdermabrasion used to be considered the most effective method of exfoliation and mild skin rejuvenation. However, microdermabrasion is not recommended for all skin types. People with sensitive or thin skin, Rosacea or ethnic skin are not candidates for microdermabrasion because of potential reactions such as scaring, hyper-pigmentation and irritation. The AquaFacial is a highly effective alternative to microdermabrasion, using the newest form of skin resurfacing technology, that Is non-invasive.
