What is HydraFacial?
At our office in Akron HydraFacial is an innovative, multi-purpose facial treatment system that uses a patented device to cleanse, exfoliate, and hydrate your facial skin during a single session. The treatment also extracts dirt and impurities while soothing your face.
Plastic Surgeons of Akron is the only local practice that offers procedures such as HydraFacial under the direction of a board-certified plastic surgeon. This distinction is of great value to patients, since it enables PSOA to combine HydraFacial with other treatments and surgical options to optimize your results and satisfaction. HydraFacial’s benefits are further extended by the physician-grade skincare, injectables, and other procedures available at Plastic Surgeons of Akron.
How does HydraFacial work?
The HydraFacial device uses water pressure funneled through a textured tip to provide direct exfoliation. A chemical peel containing salicylic acid and glycolic acid is performed to remove impurities, followed by suction to lift away dead skin cells. The final steps deliver customized treatment serums applied in a water-based solution that bathes your face with plumping hydration.
HydraFacial will elevate your natural collagen production, thus improving facial elasticity and suppleness. The treatment will reduce your facial lines and wrinkles, extract impurities from blackheads and brighten your complexion. HydraFacial has also proved to be an effective component in acne therapy.
HydraFacial can be used to benefit any skin type. The concept and procedure are far less invasive than traditional chemical peels or laser resurfacing that leave your skin red and irritated for days after treatment. HydraFacial produces consistent outcomes, generates immediate results, and requires no downtime. Finally, HydraFacial pairs exceptionally well with other available procedures to fight signs of facial aging.
Are you a candidate for HydraFacial?
HydraFacial treatment can benefit people of all ages and complexion types. From teenagers with acne to older patients with facial sun damage, HydraFacial is for almost everyone. The treatments are gentle, but candidates with inflammatory skin conditions, including rosacea, should undergo thorough evaluation before undergoing HydraFacial treatment.
Safety and side effects
HydraFacial is considered an exceptionally safe procedure that is virtually free of complications. Treatment is not supposed to cause pain or redness. But you should avoid or delay this procedure if you have an active facial rash. If you are pregnant, inform your doctor. To date, there are not enough clinical studies to evaluate HydraFacial’s safety for expectant mothers and their babies. Also, let your provider know if you have allergies or particularly sensitive skin.
HydraFacial sessions are painless, relaxing, and easily melded into your schedule.
Your provider will use a vortex-like wand to apply your “4-in-1” treatment. Many patients compare the treatment to a gentle massage. Sessions last an average of 30 minutes, after which you have no restrictions!
We strive to provide you with the best HydraFacial Akron has to offer, that's why you will notice immediate and impressive results. Your skin will feel smoother, softer, and fully hydrated. HydraFacial is often perfect for getting ready for big events, including weddings. Your face will glow!
It’s a good idea to start with two to four HydraFacials a month for about three months. After that, you can maintain great results with one session per month.
HydraFacial treatments can vary in cost per session, as there are add-ons or booster treatments that can be customized to meet your skin’s needs. If you are used to getting multiple facial procedures per month, you may find that HydraFacial’s “4-in-1” approach may be less expensive overall. Ask your provider about available payment options.
