HydraFacial (75 min, $195) - MOST POPULAR

HydraFacial

The HydraFacial is a medical-grade facial rejuvenation that cleanses, detoxifies, exfoliates, extracts and hydrates in one treatment. It is appropriate for all skin types — normal, oily, sensitive, aging. It also promises help with fine line and wrinkles, pore size, and hyperpigmentation.

Anyone looking for a good deep cleaning skin resurfacing facial, or looking to help remove impurities that cause acne should consider a HydraFacial.

What Happens During the HydraFacial?

The HydraFacial treatment starts with cleansing by removing the dead skin cells and excess sebum from the skin. Next, a mix of salicylic and glycolic acids are applied to the skin to break up any dirt and oil that’s clogging pores. Then, the HydraPeel Tip is used to essentially vacuum out blackheads, dirt, oil, and impurities, while hydrating, plumping, and nourishing serums are simultaneously applied to the skin.

What Are the HydraFacial’s Skincare Benefits?

A HyraFacial treatment can improve your skin in a ton of ways. Its many benefits include a more hydrated, bright, plump, and clear complexion. Plus, it can also improve signs of aging. The treatment reduces fine lines and wrinkles, increases firmness, evens tone, texture, and brown spots, as well as reducing enlarged pores.

      Medical Spa FAQs

      Let us answer some of your most common medical spa related questions.

      Frequently Asked Questions

      1. What is a medical spa?

      A medical spa (med spa) is a hybrid between an aesthetic medical center/skincare clinic and a day spa. According to the American Med Spa Association, there are four elements that characterize a medical spa:

      • Offer non-invasive (non-surgical) aesthetic medical services and treatments
      • Skincare professionals operate under the general supervision of a licensed physician
      • Services are performed by trained, experienced and qualified practitioners
      • Procedures are performed with onsite supervision by a licensed healthcare professional.

      2. What is the difference between a medical spa and a day spa?

      Medical aesthetic treatments go far beyond therapeutic and relaxing facials and mud baths. Treatments at many medical spas are more results driven with a focus on corrective and preventative skin care treatments.

      Aesthetic medicine includes all procedures in the field of aesthetics except surgical procedures requiring an operating table and general anesthesia. Non surgical aesthetic procedures include some of the following:
