What is the Hydrafacial?

A Hydrafacial uses a patented device to exfoliate, cleanse, and hydrate the skin, as well as extract impurities. The device uses a unique swirling action to renew and replenish the skin and remove dead skin and debris. At the same time the device gently cleanses and smooths your skin, leaving it silky and bright.

The Hydrafacial includes four treatments delivered in one fast, effective session. Combining cleansing and exfoliating with a gentle chemical peel, as well as a hydrating serum, and suction extraction makes a Hydrafacial one of the best choices for gentle facial rejuvenation.

Unlike traditional facials, the Hydrafacial is effective for all skin types, providing excellent and consistent results. Using this unique multistep process, the Hydrafacial helps tackle a broad range of cosmetic issues individuals experience, such as breakouts, fine lines and wrinkles, oily skin, and large pores. The Hydrafacial can be combined with other treatments for added rejuvenation.

What is it like to get a Hydrafacial?

A Hydrafacial fits into the busiest of schedules, taking just an average of 30 minutes. Here's what you can expect if this is your first Hydrafacial.

Cleansing and exfoliation

The first step in the Hydrafacial process is to cleanse and gently exfoliate the skin. Dr. Brownell uses the Hydrafacial wand to gently remove dirt and debris, as well as dead skin cells from your face. This stimulation also increases blood flow, which promotes healthy skin. You can think of the wand as a rotating toothbrush that removes any dirt and debris from your face.

Gentle chemical peel

After your face is clean and exfoliated, Dr. Brownell uses the wand to deliver a gentle chemical peel using nonirritating substances that help to remove old skin so that new healthier skin is revealed.


Using the vortex suction, Dr. Brownell removes blackheads and impurities embedded deeply within your pores. Many patients are surprised to see the amount of impurities that have been lurking in their skin.


To complete your Hydrafacial, Dr. Brownell uses the wand to apply a soothing and hydrating serum packed with nutrients and peptides that rejuvenate and hydrate your skin. Some patients choose to combine the Hydrafacial with additional procedures for optimal results.

The best part of your beauty routine

It’s beneficial to develop a regular beauty routine, and the Hydrafacial makes an excellent addition. Dr. Brownell will recommend an individualized treatment plan based on a close evaluation of your baseline skin health. It’s beneficial to schedule a series of Hydrafacial treatments for the first few months before establishing a consistent beauty regimen.
