How HydraFacial Restores, Revitalizes, and Reinvigorates The Skin


Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve likely heard of the highly buzzed about HydraFacial and its claim to fame for giving your skin an immediate boost of radiance and hydration. 

Hydrafacials are a favorite among our clients who are looking for treatments that offer instant gratification with zero downtime, making this the go-to service to get a clarified complexion and dewy glow before a big event. 

However, it’s also ideal for prepping your skin to receive other medical aesthetic treatments, which is just another reason why we love it here at Potomac Medical Aesthetics!

If you’re considering investing in your skin’s long-term health with the help of a HydraFacial, keep reading to get all your questions answered:

What is HydraFacial, and what does it help with?

HydraFacial uses patented, state-of-the-art technology to cleanse, extract, and hydrate the skin using a three-step process (more on that below!). 

Although HydraFacial is a fantastic treatment for maintaining the health of all skin types, even without any specific concerns, HydraFacial is also clinically proven to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, congested and enlarged pores, oily or acne-prone skin, hyperpigmentation, and brown spots.

How does HydraFacial work?

The mechanics of a HydraFacial include the use of a handheld device to remove skin impurities and replenish essential nutrients, such as hyaluronic acid and antioxidants, that help your skin look and feel younger.

With the HydraFacial device, we move in a series of three phases:

1 - Cleanse and Peel - Uncover a new layer of skin with gentle exfoliation and restorative resurfacing.

2 - Extract and Hydrate - Remove debris from pores with painless suction. Nourish with intense moisturizers that quench skin.

3 - Fuse and Protect - Saturate the skin’s surface with antioxidants and peptides to maximize your glow.

In addition to the three core steps of the HydraFacial process, we also can customize your treatment using a variety of HydraPeel tips to address your specific skin concerns.

Overall, between the immediate results and the quick 30 minutes, this treatment takes, HydraFacial is perfect for the busy patient on the go! 

What does it feel like?

One of the reasons everyone raves about HydraFacials is there’s no discomfort! 

Receiving a HydraFacial simply feels like a slight vacuum suction across the face, which will feel even more satisfying after seeing the impurities that the HydraFacial device pulls out of the skin. 

Am I a good candidate for receiving a HydraFacial?

Due to HydraFacial’s highly versatile and customizable nature (we can tailor your HydraFacial treatment to fit your unique skin needs and concerns), the HydraFacial treatment is a good fit for nearly every patient looking to restore the look and feel of their skin. 

How long do HydraFacial results last, and how often should I get them?

Due to the natural cycle of skin regeneration, your immediate HydraFacial results can last for up to two weeks with the aid of a high-quality skin care regimen. 

However, as with all of our aesthetic treatments we offer at Potomac Medical Aesthetics, we also provide all of our patients with a customized treatment plan to ensure that you receive treatments at a frequency that will give you ideal results.
