I was awake and talking to Dr. Lawrence the whole time and did not feel a thing. The end result is amazing. The doctor and staff at this practice are all friendly, knowledgeable, and care greatly. I could not be more pleased. Thank you"- H.M. / Yelp / Aug 06, 2019

The HydraFacial system is designed to be suitable for patients of all ages and skin types. The treatment will be customized to suit your specific needs and goals. Skin concerns that may be improved by a HydraFacial include:
- Brown or sun spots
- Chronic or infrequent outbreaks of acne
- Decreased skin elasticity or firmness
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Large or congested pores
- Oily skin
- Rough skin texture
- Uneven or dull skin tone
HydraFacials are performed in our office in about 30 minutes. The facial will begin with a thorough consultation to select the best products and options for your treatment. As soon as your plan is complete, you will be invited to relax in a private room as your procedure begins. HydraFacials include six main steps: cleansing, exfoliation, pore extraction, hydration, adding nourishment, and protection for your skin. These steps are customized to the needs of your complexion by using the appropriate cleansers, level of exfoliation, moisturizers, serums, and other products. HydraFacials can be further personalized with another complementary facial treatment available at our office. The aspect of the HydraFacial that sets it apart from a traditional facial is the vortex exfoliation, which is performed using a tiny vacuum that is moved over the face to suction dead skin cells. The pores are also cleaned out during the extraction process. When your HydraFacial has been completed, your face will look and feel softer and vibrant.
What to Expect
If needed, you may reapply makeup following your treatment to conceal mild redness before you resume your daily activities. You will likely have visible improvements to your complexion immediately after your procedure with full results visible in 3 – 7 days. To sustain the benefits of your treatment, Dr. Lawrence recommends getting these treatments every 4 – 6 weeks. During your consultation, we can help you schedule future treatments and discuss products that may be used at home to best maintain your complexion in between professional treatments.
frequently asked questions
What are the results like?
HydraFacials are an excellent rejuvenation treatment to incorporate throughout the year to complement your daily routine. It is a deeper cleaning that can help keep your skin radiant, healthy, and glowing. While traditional facials are effective, the skin often needs a deeper cleaning to open clogged pores and remove dead skin cells. The HydraFacial is great for this aspect. During treatment, we can add in additional ingredients into the facial to help improve many different types of skin irregularities.
Can I combine this with other treatments?
It is very common for our patients to combine a HydraFacial treatment with another skin rejuvenation procedure, such as BOTOX or a filler. Many times, we perform these in the same appointment block. Within days of the combined treatments, patients see visible changes in their skin and a more youthful, softer appearance.
How often should I have one?
During your consultation, we will discuss how often you should get a HydraFacial to maintain the results you desire. It is safe to get a HydraFacial throughout the year or as needed so your skin sees continued improvement. It is common for our patients to schedule their HydraFacials a couple of months apart and come in for traditional facials in between.
Is it better than a chemical or laser peel?
Chemical peels and laser peels offer great benefits to the skin by removing the dull surface layer so that a healthy layer can appear. Both of these treatments, as well as a HydraFacial, treat different and unique skin irregularities. They can be performed at different times of the year, depending on what you are addressing. The HydraFacial can be performed more often and become a regular part of your routine, whereas peels should be done just once or twice a year.
