What is HydraFacial MD?

The HydraFacial MD is the only device that incorporates the benefits of next-level hydradermabrasion, a chemical peel, automated painless extractions (no pinching!) and a special delivery of Antioxidants, Hyaluronic Acid, Peptides and Growth Factors. The HydraFacial MD treatment removes dead skin cells and extracts impurities while simultaneously bathing the new skin with cleansing, hydrating and moisturizing serums. The treatment is soothing, refreshing, non-irritating and immediately effective with no downtime or discomfort. It delivers long-term skin health and can be tailored to meet the specific needs of all skin types.

HydraFacial™ hydradermabrasion technology was clinically proven to be effective for facial rejuvenation.


Rejuvenation Stairway by Dr. Bruce Freedman

The HydraFacial MD takes non-invasive skin rejuvenation to a whole new level – even two levels above IPL. In clinical studies performed by leading U.S. doctors, the HydraFacial MD was shown to provide better results than many other skin rejuvenation devices. Most importantly, the HydraFacial MD is the only hydradermabrasion machine that uses the patented 4-in-1 Vortex Technology™.

Why is HydraFacial MD good for my skin?


Hydration is the foundation of healthy, radiant skin. Irritation of the skin has been proven to increase signs of aging. The HydraFacial MD is a hydrating and non-irritating treatment designed for all skin types, even the most sensitive skin.  The treatment is customized to meet your unique skin conditions and needs by choosing specific treatment serums.

This multi-step process includes Vortex-Exfoliation™, Vortex-Peel™, Vortex-Extraction™, Vortex-Boost™, and Vortex-Fusion®.

GlySal™ serum, a mixture of Glycolic and Salicylic Acids delivers the benefits of a peel without post-peel scaling.


GlySal™ Acid Peels – 3 Treatment Level Options  


While some may find the very words acid peel a bit daunting, we believe they provide excellent benefits. Glycolic, Salicylic, and Lactic acids are used frequently in HydraFacial MD treatments. These acids are notorious for gently exfoliating skin by sloughing away dead skin cells. HydraFacial MD acid peel formulations are great for all skin types, especially those with oily and congested skin.

This advancement in skin resurfacing technology combines the benefits of aggressive exfoliation and chemical peels into a one-step resurfacing procedure.  This step exfoliates and deeply cleanses the skin by dislodging dead skin cell and loosening dirt and debris from pores without skin irritation. The result combines the benefits of a peel with speed and comfort without downtime.

Salicylic Acid belongs to the beta-hydroxy family and acts as an exfoliating agent, sloughing away dead skin cells. This is extremely effective when targeting oily and congested skin because it helps reduce the build-up of dirt and sebum within the pores.

Benefits of GlySal Acid Peels:

  • Reduced or eliminated post-peel scaling
  • Little to no downtime; minimal irritation or stinging
  • Minimizes visible imperfections within minutes
  • Immediate skin radiance

Summary of the benefits of HydraFacial MD

Our goal is to help support you in a balanced lifestyle. That’s why HydraFacial MD is a fast, efficient treatment that takes as little as 30 minutes. You may put on make-up and return to your normal activities right after the treatment since there is no downtime.

After each HydraFacial MD treatment, we also provide a complimentary LED light therapy for 15 minutes to to give another enhancement to your treatment. The LED light therapy increases oxygenation and blood supply to your skin and seals in all nourishing serums which help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and smooth out skin.

Many clients report seeing visible skin refinement and an even, radiant skin tone after just one treatment. The smooth results and hydration may last 5 to 7 days or even longer. We don’t believe in quick fixes, so one treatment per month is recommended for improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, oily and congested skin. Continued HydraFacial MD treatments are highly recommended to maintain skin health results.

Skin Health for Life is not just improving the appearance of your client’s skin, but actually restoring youthful, healthy skin. Skin Health is a lifestyle, requiring monthly maintenance and the right treatment for every skin type and every skin condition.
