Hydrafacial Q & A

What is HydraFacial?

HydraFacial is a revolutionary, noninvasive system that cleanses, exfoliates, hydrates, and protects your skin. Using advanced technology, HydraFacial mimics the radiant results of a chemical peel or microdermabrasion without the discomfort or irritation that may affect sensitive skin.

How does HydraFacial work?

HydraFacial uses a patented, four-step process to gently rejuvenate your skin. The team at Columbia Internal Medicine applies the HydraFacial handpiece to your skin to:

  • Cleanse and exfoliate dead skin cells
  • Remove debris and blackheads with a gentle peel
  • Extract impurities with vacuum suction
  • Nourish and hydrate dry skin with peptides and antioxidants

There’s no skin peeling or irritation after a HydraFacial treatment, so you can resume regular activities the same day.

Who is a good candidate for a HydraFacial treatment?

The best part about HydraFacial is that it’s safe and effective for all skin types, including thin and aging skin. Even the most sensitive skin can enjoy a HydraFacial treatment. 

Your provider at Columbia Internal Medicine customizes your treatment to your specific skin type and unique concerns to ensure optimal results. 

What skin problems does HydraFacial treat?

HydraFacial addresses a wide range of skin concerns and aesthetic issues. The team uses HydraFacial to improve the appearance of many common skin problems, including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sun damage
  • Enlarged pores
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Sun spots and age spots

If you have specific skin concerns, your provider at Columbia Internal Medicine customizes your HydraFacial treatment to suit your needs. 

What should I expect from a HydraFacial procedure?

First, one of the highly experienced providers at Columbia Internal Medicine carefully evaluates your skin and discusses your particular concerns. Then, they develop a personalized HydraFacial treatment plan based on your unique skin type.

HydraFacial treatments typically last about 45 minutes. During this time, there’s no pain, and you won’t need any downtime for recovery. You can apply makeup and return to normal activities immediately after your appointment. 

Most people notice an immediate improvement after only one treatment. To maintain glowing skin, you should schedule HydraFacial appointments at regular intervals. Most people benefit from monthly treatments, but this may vary depending on your skin type and aesthetic goals.
