Hydrafacial Q & A

What is a HydraFacial?

A HydraFacial is a world-popular cosmetic procedure that removes impurities from the skin. It uses a three-step process to clean, exfoliate, and hydrate your skin, minimizing the appearance of age-related imperfections like wrinkles, fine lines, and crow’s feet.

HydraFacials are similar to traditional facials, but they provide longer-lasting and more noticeable results. Treatment can be tailored to your skin’s need.

What skin problems can benefit from a HydraFacial?

PrudentMD uses HydraFacials to treat various skin problems, including:

  • Blackheads
  • Whiteheads
  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Sun spots
  • Dry, itchy skin
  • Aging skin

You might also be a candidate for a HydraFacial if you have large pores.

What happens during a HydraFacial?

The providers at PrudentMD offer HydraFacials on-site. At the beginning of your appointment, your doctor examines your skin and asks about your treatment goals.

Next, your provider uses a wand-like tool to clean dirt and oil from your pores carefully. They then apply a chemical peel to exfoliate and resurface your skin. After applying the peel, your provider attaches a suction device to the wand. The suction removes blackheads, whiteheads, and dirt from your pores.

Lastly, your provider carefully applies a healing serum and LED light to your skin. The serum contains vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that encourage your body’s healing process. The LED light promotes anti-aging, collagen synthesis, and prevents acne. 

What can I expect after a HydraFacial?

A HydraFacial takes about 30-60 minutes. After treatment, you can return to work and your other activities right away. In the days after your HydraFacial, your skin appears smoother, healthier, and more vibrant.

How often can I get a HydraFacial?

The frequency at which you can get a HydraFacial depends on several things, including your skin type and goals. PrudentMD recommends undergoing a HydraFacial once every four weeks for the best results. More frequent treatments could be necessary.

Can a HydraFacial treat all skin problems?

HydraFacials are very effective, but they can’t treat all skin problems. Your provider at PrudentMD might recommend a different approach if you have acne, rosacea, sagging skin, or dark circles under your eyes.

Are HydraFacials covered by health insurance?

HydraFacials are considered an elective cosmetic procedure, so they aren’t covered by health insurance. Even so, PrudentMD charges very affordable prices. After an in-office exam and discussing your goals, your provider can prepare a custom estimate.
