For patients with sensitive skin, common skin resurfacing options like laser treatments, chemical peels and microdermabrasion can cause excessive discomfort and unwanted side effects. HydraFacial is a gentle, non-invasive skin treatment that works deep into the pores to restore radiant, refreshed skin. With no side effects and no downtime required, regular HydraFacial treatments can rejuvenate skin and promote a healthier appearance for patients of all skin types.

At Sapphire Advanced Aesthetics, Dr. Leslie Smith and her expert team of estheticians are excited to provide patients with non-invasive and effective HydraFacial treatments to keep their skin looking and feeling beautiful.

HydraFacial Overview

HydraFacial treatments can benefit patients of any skin type and sensitivity, making it one of the most versatile treatment options in skin care. HydraFacial is a non-surgical, non-invasive skin treatment that can be personalized on an individual basis. Depending on each patient’s skin condition and needs, different serums will be used during treatment. HydraFacial operates on a four-step system of cleansing and exfoliation, acid peel application, extraction and advanced serum hydration.

How Does HydraFacial Work?

HydraFacial provides a systematic skin treatment approach. The HydraFacial handheld device cleanses and exfoliates skin at the start of treatment, removing impurities and other clutter that gives the skin a dull and tired appearance. It then infuses the skin with a gentle acid that breaks down and loosens impurities, providing an effect similar to a chemical peel but without the harsh side effects.

After the skin has been cleaned and exfoliated, the HydraFacial handheld device uses a vacuum-suctioned tip to pull gunk like blackheads and dead skin out of the skin to free up the pores. A hydrating serum soothes skin and keeps it moisturized throughout the process, eliminating common side effects like dry and peeling skin.

Finally, after the skin has been thoroughly cleaned and exfoliated, a serum containing antioxidants, peptides, amino acids and hyaluronic acid enriches the skin to provide a boost of nutrients and hydration that gives the skin an immediate glow.
