People Ask Us All The Time – What Type of Facial Should I Get?

Facials Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Q: What is the difference between a facial at a dermatology office and a day-spa?

A: Our advice is based on the health history and condition of your skin as medical professionals. We work with our patients as a team to help achieve results based on their personal needs. While a spa facial provides some benefits, they are generally not as clinically effective in clearing pores of impurities and infusing hyaluronic acid directly into the skin as HydraFacial.

Q: The HydraFacial: What’s It All About?

A: For starters, a HydraFacial is perfect for virtually all skin types, conditions and concerns. As long as you are not suffering from an extreme cystic breakout or don’t have any active infections or allergies to sulfa drugs, you’re a candidate! The highlight of the treatment is a gentle but effective exfoliation. HydraFacial uses a microdermabrasion tip with the added benefit of a chemical exfoliant, making your skin smoother and brighter. This treatment also reduces signs of aging and sun damage and helps treat milder forms of acne as it features a deep cleanse while extracting clogged pores.

Q: Can you explain the various HydraFacial boosters and upgrades?

A: The Signature HydraFacial is our classic HydraFacial experience. This invigorating treatment includes deeply cleansing, exfoliating, and extracting impurities from the skin while simultaneously infusing nourishing ingredients to hydrate the skin.

Our Deluxe HydraFacial includes all of the essentials of the Signature HydraFacial while addressing your specific skin concern with a Booster of your choice.
