HydraFacial®

HydraFacial® is a proprietary facial treatment from Edge Systems used to cleanse, exfoliate, and rejuvenate your facial skin. 

With age, skin loses its elasticity and produces less collagen and hyaluronic acid. Over time, dead cells and debris accumulate, giving the skin a dull and aged appearance. 

The non-invasive, multi-step process of the HydraFacial® provides instant, noticeable results with no downtime or irritation. Each treatment session is customizable and lasts 30-60 minutes. Regular treatments, scheduled roughly once a month, can help maintain a smoother, more radiant look.

Who is an ideal candidate for a HydraFacial® treatment?

HydraFacial® treatments are extremely gentle and are therefore suitable for almost everyone. Additionally, the serums and hydrating solutions used during the process can be customized to individual needs, making it the ideal non-invasive rejuvenating procedure. 

Younger patients prone to occasional breakouts may benefit from gentle extractions using a combination of Glycolic and salicylic acid. On the other hand, mature and sun-damaged skin may benefit more from treatments targeting pigmentation and skin texture.

Patients with active skin infections should avoid HydraFacial® sessions till their infection or inflammatory skin condition subsides. 

How does the HydraFacial® system work?

A HydraFacial® session includes three steps: cleansing, exfoliating, and hydrating. Every step works in conjunction with the others for a unified effect. The treatment session takes less than an hour, while the rejuvenated glow can last for a week or longer. 

Aestheticians can use the HydraFacial® system to cleanse, exfoliate, extract, and deliver a variety of rejuvenating serums, all in the same session. It is also possible to incorporate dermaplaning, blue light, red light, and lymphatic drainage as part of a HydraFacial®  treatment session.

The HydraFacial® wand is a device with versatile attachments that are moved over the treatment area to open pores for a deep cleanse. It uses a gentle suction action to painlessly extract any impurities and dead skin cells from the pores. The vortex fusion drenches the exfoliated skin with cleansing, hydrating, and moisturizing serums.

This quick and relaxing treatment session is gentle and non-invasive, and no downtime is involved. You can return to daily activities immediately after and wear makeup as desired.

At Greco MD, we also offer patients the ability to incorporate boosters to further enhance their treatment. 

  • CTGF (Connective Tissue Growth Factor) booster targets specific signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles
  • Britenol booster works to lighten dark spots and address sun damage
  • Rizitozol booster treats acne-prone skin

Our aesthetic staff can guide you toward the ideal booster based on your cosmetic goals.

What HydraFacial® options do you offer?

Greco MD offers several HydraFacial® packages.

Signature

This is the traditional HydraFacial® session involving three steps: deep cleaning or exfoliation, extracting, and hydrating the skin.

Clarifying

A clarifying HydraFacial® is ideal for improving congested or acne-prone skin. The first step is dermaplaning, which removes dead skin for extra exfoliation while allowing skincare products to be absorbed more efficiently, increasing their effectiveness. 

This is followed by a Signature HydraFacial® protocol and LED Light Therapy to further improve the visible effects of aging and kill acne-causing bacteria. 

Deluxe

The Deluxe package consists of all the essentials of the Signature HydraFacial® as well as a targeted HydraFacial® booster for addressing specific skin imperfections, followed by LED Light therapy to maximize anti-aging effects and promote collagen production.

Platinum

This is the most comprehensive HydraFacial® experience. Begin your treatment with your choice of detoxifying lymphatic drainage to remove excess fluid, toxins, and inflammation OR dermaplaning, which removes dead skin and peach fuzz, allowing for better product absorption and a beautifully smooth canvas for makeup application. 

The next step is a Deluxe HydraFacial® protocol that involves deep cleansing and exfoliation, extraction, and skin hydration. Our aesthetic team will advise you on the specific booster serums that can be used to correct your skin concerns. 

LED Light Therapy is then applied to the skin for optimal results. 

What to expect after a HydraFacial® session?

Most patients see visible results after a single HydraFacial® session. Your skin can appear smoother and feel more hydrated for five to seven days post-procedure. However, multiple treatments can have a more cumulative benefit and effect. Speak to our aesthetic team to learn more.

In the short term, patients will see noticeably glowing, clear, and hydrated skin after a HydraFacial® session. With long-term use, patients can expect improvement in skin texture and tone.

What precautions are necessary after a HydraFacial® session?

Similar to other exfoliating treatments, the skin becomes sensitive to sun damage after a HydraFacial® session. We recommend using a physical block sunscreen and avoiding irritants such as toners, astringents, harsh detergents, and topical retinoids for 1-2 days after treatment. 

Our aestheticians can also help you identify gentle emollients that can help soothe the skin and protect its rejuvenated glow.

What other facial treatments can be used with HydraFacial®?

We recommend combining a dermaplaning procedure to boost the effects of HydraFacial® further. During dermaplaning, a special blade is used to remove fine vellus hairs (peach fuzz) and dead skin. When paired together, these two treatments can give the skin a particular radiance.

Other available services include chemical peels to exfoliate and microneedling to stimulate collagen production. 

Our aestheticians can also help you plan out a self-care regimen to cleanse, exfoliate, nourish, hydrate, and protect your rejuvenated skin.
