Your skin is the largest organ in the body, your first line of defense and what everyone sees first. HydraFacial MD™ uses patented Vortex TechnologyTM to CLEANSE, EXFOLIATE, EXTRACT and HYDRATE all skin types all in one treatment to achieve immediate results with no discomfort or downtime.   

 HydraFacial MD™, as the name implies, is based on the foundation that proper hydration is the basis of skin health!! 

There are 5 steps in the HydraFacial MD™ experience that will cleanse and rejuvenate your skin while you relax and enjoy the treatment:

Try Our Powerful, Anti-Aging, Softening and Hydrating Facial

Step 1: Vortex-Cleaning™
The HydroPeel® tip is used with a specific deep cleansing solution to CLEANSE the surface of your skin removing the initial layer of oil and dirt.

Step 2: HydroPeel® Exfoliation
A light chemical peel (combination of glycolic and salicylic acid) is applied to EXFOLIATE debris (dead skin). The chemical peel lowers the pH of the skin breaking the bonds that hold the upper dead layers of skin together to allow for the gentle removal of dead skin without irritation.

Step 3: Vortex-Extraction™
Painless vortex suction easily dislodges blackheads, whiteheads and sebum to further
EXTRACT these impurities from deep within the pores.

Step 4: Antioxidants and hyaluronic acid are infused into the now clean and fresh skin to
HYDRATE, nourish and protect the skin.

Step 5: LED light therapy (OPTIONAL) completes the treatment. The red LED light helps to stimulate collagen and elastin improving tone and texture and pigment issues. The blue LED light is very good for oily skin and acne prone skin. Combining the red and blue LED light will help improve Rosacea.
