How to Prepare for Your HydraFacial® Treatment

Before your HydraFacial®:

  • Drink lots of water.
  • Protect your skin from the sun, and don’t smoke for a week before your HydraFacial®.
  • Clean your face to ensure your skin is free of makeup or moisturizers.
  • Be ready to relax.

What to Expect During Your HydraFacial®

HydraFacial® Step #1: Cleanse and Peel

Your skin is cleansed and deeply exfoliated to remove dead skin cells from the top layer. This part of the process works like a peel to unclog pores and, when received regularly, increases collagen production for a brighter, healthier-looking complexion.

HydraFacial® Step #2: Extract and Hydrate

Gentle suction effectively pulls debris and other impurities from your pores while simultaneously hydrating the skin prior to being infused with nutrients during the final step.

HydraFacial® Step #3: Infuse and Protect

Finally, your HydraFacial® treatment will be completed with an infusion of proprietary serums or “boosters” customized and prepared specifically to address your skin concerns.

After Your HydraFacial®

Protect your skin, which will be tender after your HydraFacial®, and optimize your results by following these tips:

  • Avoid sun exposure for 48 hours after your HydraFacial®.
  • Apply an SPF 30+ sunscreen daily for 15 minutes before going outside, then reapply to sun-exposed skin every two hours.
  • Do not touch, rub, or pick at your skin, which can cause irritation and infection.
  • Use a gentle, alcohol and fragrance-free facial cleanser appropriate for your skin type.
  • Avoid exfoliating products.
  • Don’t wear makeup for at least 24 hours after your HydraFacial®; if you have sensitive skin or frequent acne breakouts, wait 48 hours.
  • As guided by your skincare specialist, you may receive laser, microneedling, peels, and waxing treatments  in preparation for or after your HydraFacial®.
  • Avoid saunas, hot tubs, the gym, the beach, and other environments that may warm your skin or make you sweat for at least 48 hours after your HydraFacial®.
