What is a Hydrafacial?

Hydrafacial is a non-invasive facial and body treatment that improves skin health by targeting specific concerns such as dry skin, mild hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, pore size, redness and even acne. 

Hydrafacial delivers clear and smooth skin by using 3 steps:

1. Cleanse 

Hydrfacial deeply cleanses away dirt, oil, makeup and debris by using a wet diamond tip. The diamond tip is effective in exfoliating away any dead skin cells to reveal smooth skin while cleaning out the pores.

2. Extract 

Hydrafacial removes impurities with a gentle suction and glycolic acid. Depending on sensitivity or skin elasticity, a skilled Hydrafacial provider will determine which percentage of glycolic acid will be best for removing impurities or black heads in congested areas. This allows for better product penetration for the next Hydrafacial step.

3. Hydrate 

Hydrafacial is best known for the glow. The last step in Hydrafacial saturates the skin in potent moisturizers and antioxidants. This step may be personalized by using a Hydrafacial Booster which uses powerful nourishing ingredients to aid in a particular skin concern. 

In a recent clinical study, Hydrafacial is proven to improve acne using Hydrafacial's patented Vortex-Fusion Delivery System and powerful ingredients. 


The new study, published in the Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology (JCAD), found Hydrafacial clarifying treatments improved acne skin concerns in 100% of study participants.

According to Chief Medical Officer Jwala Karnik, M.D, twenty subjects with mild-to-moderate acne, ranging in age from 19 to 48 and across all Fitzpatrick skin types, participated in the study. They received a clarifying Hydrafacial treatment with blue LED light every two weeks during a 12-week period, for a total of six treatments.


Here are the findings: 

  • 100% positive response: There was a significant improvement in acne severity, with 100% of participants finding they had clearer, healthier, and more radiant skin.
  • Clear and clean: Study participants reported fewer acne lesions and reduced inflammation and said their skin looked and felt cleaner.
  • Boost of confidence: Participants reported a significant boost in confidence in their appearance, growing from 40% feeling more confident after their first treatment to 100% after their final treatment.

The full study can be found in the December issue of The Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology .
