HydraFacial is a cosmetic skincare treatment that uses non-invasive patented technology to gently revitalize and restore the skin with protective nutrients at and below the surface. Dr. Ioannis Glavas and his expert team are considered top providers of the HydraFacial in Boston and frequently perform this treatment to keep their patients’ skin smooth and glowing.
What Is a HydraFacial?
This rejuvenating treatment involves three steps using the HydraFacial machine. HydraFacials combine exfoliation, intense hydration, and potent serums to provide lasting therapeutic benefits that stimulate collagen production and protect the skin from environmental damage and toxins.
Am I a Good Candidate for a HydraFacial?
People with all skin types can benefit from a HydraFacial. Patients love the results they have experienced after a HydraFacial to improve concerns such as:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Oily skin
- Enlarged or congested pores
- Acne, blackheads, and other blemishes
- Dryness, redness, and dark spots from sun exposure
Patients with specific chronic skin conditions or allergies may not be suited for a HydraFacial or may need to delay treatment if experiencing an active breakout. Always provide a complete medical history before treatment, so we can determine the safest, most effective skin rejuvenation procedure for you.
“Thank you so very much for the work that you did for me. What a tremendous difference it has made in my comfort level and appearance. I will never be able to thank you enough. Also your staff and office helper were so kind and caring as you were. It made such a difference. ”
What to Expect During a HydraFacial Session
A HydraFacial session usually takes less than an hour. During treatment, the aesthetician will use the HydraFacial machine and hand-held treatment wand to complete the three steps of a HydraFacial.
The treatment will begin with the hydration-powered exfoliating tip that will loosen debris and bacterial impurities and vacuum them away with deep penetrating suction. Next, a light mixture of glycolic and salicylic acid is applied through the wand and simultaneously washed away, removing inactive and damaged skin cells that cause the appearance of dullness, dryness, and discoloration. Now the skin is prepared to benefit from the last step of this restorative treatment.
The last step delivers the HydraFacial grand finale! Using the treatment wand, the aesthetician will infuse invigorating serums selected for your skin. Our serums are packed with antioxidants and peptides that encourage collagen production and protect cell health.
What to Expect After a HydraFacial Session
Recovery time is not required after a HydraFacial treatment, and many patients notice more vibrant skin right away. To promote the best possible outcome, we advise postponing at-home and in-office exfoliation treatments for a few days after your HydraFacial.
Unless otherwise directed, cosmetics can be used on the same day as receiving a HydraFacial. However, patients should avoid tanning beds and excessive sun and heat exposure for 72 hours. Detailed aftercare information will be provided.
How Much Does a HydraFacial Cost?
The price of this treatment varies based on your HydraFacial session. During your consultation, we will design your ideal treatment plan and can then provide cost information. Choosing to complement your HydraFacial with additional skin rejuvenation or facial sculpting treatments will also affect the overall cost.
