What's All The Fuss Over The HydraFacial?

Posted by Dr. Patrick Proffer on May 18, 2021

For those who want beautiful, healthy skin without an invasive treatment, there are many facials to choose from. But it’s the HydraFacial that seems to be everyone’s favorite new treatment.

Find how what the HydraFacial can do, how it stacks up against other facial treatments, and whether it's the right choice for you.

What Is A HydraFacial?

This non-invasive facial treatment is designed to tackle several different skin issues at once, leaving you with soft, even, glowing skin. The aesthetician will extract impurities, cleanse the pores, and use a mixture of antioxidants to make the skin healthy, peptides to refresh the skin, and hyaluronic acid to hydrate. 

How Does It Work?

The unique HydraFacial technique uses the HydraFacial MD, designed by Edge Systems, to clean pores with a suction that extracts anything that may be clogging your pores, such as dirt, oil, etc. The pores are then filled with a serum made up of hydrating and revitalizing ingredients.

What Can A HydraFacial Do For Your Skin?

HydraFacials Vs. Other Facial Treatments

With all the facial options, it can be overwhelming to determine which is best for your skin and skin issues. Here’s how a HydraFacial differs from other facial treatments.


  • HydraFacials use a suction to remove impurities, and fill the pores with a healthy serum to bring skin back to life.
  • Regular facials are perfect for feeling pampered and making skin feel fresh and clean. Most regular facials won't address specific skin issues the way that HydraFacials do.
  • Microneedling is a non-invasive collagen induction therapy that rejuvenates the skin. However, using the tiny needles on the skin may create scars, unlike the gentle suction of the HydraFacial. However, microneedling is recommended for severe scarring and loose skin.
  • Microdermabrasion uses microcrystals to remove the outermost layer of dry, dead skin cells. This non-chemical, non-invasive procedure results in younger, healthier-looking skin. It’s great for uneven pigmentation, fine lines, and clogged pores, as well as light acne scarring. If you have skin conditions such as eczema, rosacea, dermatitis, etc., it’s best to avoid microdermabrasion. A HydraFacial is much gentler than microdermabrasion.
  • Dermaplaning addresses skin texture. Using a sterile, surgical scalpel, it gently shaves the skin’s surface, removing dead skin cells and hair.
