What is a HydraFacial?


HydraFacial MD® treatment is the perfect choice if you want to rejuvenate your skin and get results now! Results will be visible right after your first appointment! This unique treatment offers immediate results with no downtime, which means you can get right back into your routine and even apply makeup after your service.

HydraFacial MD® is a 30-minute facial procedure that combines cleansing, chemical peel, exfoliation, and extraction. In the process, it takes out what causes acne outbreaks, and restores leaving your skin looking younger and more refreshed.

How does the HydraFacial MD® treatment work?

HydraFacial MD® is a non-surgical, non-invasive skin treatment that cleanses, exfoliates, peels, extracts, and hydrates your skin with a single tool. Usually, people have to undergo multiple treatments in order to cleanse, exfoliate, and hydrate their skin, but HydraFacial offers all these treatments in a single session.

While there are many types of Hydrafacials, HydraFacial MD® treatments provide higher strength of glycolic acid to better deal with wrinkles, large pores, thinning skin, and breakouts!

There are four types of HydraFacial MD®; Calming HydraFacial MD, Illuminating HydraFacial MD, Platinum HydraFacial MD, and Restoring HydraFacial MD. The professionals at Douglas J Salon and Medspa Okemos can recommend the best for your skin.

The HydraFacial MD® treatment is based on three fundamental steps: Deep Cleansing, Extraction and Hydration. During the Hydration step, your treatment can be completely customized with targeted serums and active ingredients that nourish and moisturize the skin, plus reduce pigment and the signs of aging.

HydraFacials combine cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration and antioxidant protection all in one, non-invasive skin resurfacing treatment. Instead of using needles, it uses a light exfoliating treatment to remove impurities, dirt, and remove dead skin.

The three steps to the HydraFacial MD® treatment:
Deep Cleanse – For the cleanest pores you’ve ever had. A special enzyme peel dissolves away clogged pores and sebum, congestion, dry, dead skin cells and surface grease and dirt.

Extraction – A gentle suction pulls out dirt and impurities extremely gently, without the pain associated with manual extractions. All you feel is a light vacuum sensation on the skin and at the same time you can feel the treatment is working.

Hydration – The first two steps prepare your skin for Hydration and infusion of targeted serums. As your skin is being infused with water and moisturizers, personalized active ingredients are targeting and solving your biggest skin issues.

The treatment is set using a hydrating serum that creates a beautiful, glowing effect. The hydrating serum is completely customizable so can be used for a variety of benefits, whether you’re trying to help with acne conditions, to anti-aging benefits, to facial rejuvenation, beauty enhancement and more!

How often should I receive the HydraFacial MD® treatment?

How often should you plan on getting a HydraFacial MD® treatment largely depends on the condition of your skin, but as a general rule of thumb, you should plan to get a HydraFacial MD® session once a month for your best results.

The HydraFacial MD® treatment has immediate results and long lasting benefits. Right after treatment, your skin will look brighter, plumper and more healthy. Pores will look cleaner and less congested. By getting regular HydraFacial MD® treatments, you can improve the overall condition of your skin and achieve a more permanent glow that appears to radiate from within. Other benefits include smoother complexion, fewer lines and wrinkles, reduction in dark spots and sun damage, and increased firmness and elasticity.

Will the HydraFacial MD® treatment hurt?

HydraFacial MD® is a non-invasive procedure and should not hurt during the procedure. Although you may feel slight irritation, itching or redness in the treated area, these go away after a few hours or within a day or two on their own without the need for any medication.

Can you combine other treatments with HydraFacial MD®?

You CAN combine HydraFacial MD® treatment with other treatments! HydraFacial MD® treatment works especially well with microneedling or laser skin tightening – rejuvenation.
