Is HydraFacial the Right Skin Restoration Treatment for You?
The skin takes a beating over the course of a lifetime as sun exposure, environmental factors and even the natural aging process take their toll. Fortunately, medical treatments can reverse much of that damage and restore the healthy glow of the complexion.
While this means surgery for some patients, nonsurgical methods can also produce desired effects without incisions or anesthesia. Dr. Manu Aggarwal at Vein Care Center and Laser Specialists has found that many of her patients benefit from the non-invasive HydraFacial, a pampering treatment that provides the restorative benefits you want to achieve at any stage of life.
What is a HydraFacial?
HydraFacial MD is an innovative medical facial that is performed in series of steps to produce the best possible results. The goal of a Hydrafacial is not to merely improve your skin’s appearance, but its health as well. By infusing the dermal layers with vital nutrients and hydration, we can effectively turn back the clock and reverse the damage. Results are seen soon after your appointment and are relatively easy to maintain with regular treatment sessions.
Best Candidates for Treatment
The HydraFacial is likely a good option for you if you want to revive and refresh the appearance of your skin. This treatment can be safely and effectively used for any skin type and tone, including those with darker skin tones or issues related to sensitive skin. It is also appropriate for patients of any age, whether you are a teen looking to manage your acne condition or an aging adult wanting to turn back the clock on your appearance.
Dr. Aggarwal and her team will assess your specific concerns and desired outcome before your treatment to determine whether a HydraFacial will meet your expectations. We do offer a variety of skin treatments at Vein Care Center, so we are equipped to provide you with customizable solutions and superior results with every visit to our office.
Benefits of the HydraFacial
A single HydraFacial treatment may effectively address the following concerns:
- Subtle lines around the eyes and mouth
- Uneven skin texture
- Dull skin tone
- Pigmentation irregularities
- Mild skin laxity, loss of elasticity
- Enlarged pores
- Oily skin prone to acne breakouts
Most patients will see excellent results from their HydraFacial alone, but others may choose to combine the HydraFacial with other procedures to further enhance results. Use of medical-grade skin care products at home between facial procedures will also improve and extend the results of your treatments.
Four Steps, Superior Results
A single HydraFacial treatment consists of four steps performed sequentially to address all the skin’s needs at one time:
1. Cleansing and Exfoliation
Step one of the HydraFacial involves the cleansing and exfoliating of the skin so that the skin is prepared for the full treatment that lies ahead. A deplaning tool is used for this purpose, which efficiently and painlessly removes outermost skin cells and surface debris.
2. Gentle Skin Resurfacing
A light chemical peel that combines glycolic and salicylic acid is applied to the skin next to eliminate additional impurities and prepare the skin for greater absorption of the hydrating ingredients to come. Unlike other chemical peels, this one does not cause any burning or discomfort — just a gentle tingle to let you know it’s working.
3. Extraction of Impurities
During the next step, a suction device is used to remove residual impurities from the pores. This opens the pores up for absorption of additional ingredients while creating a smoother, cleaner surface to the skin. Patients can see what is removed from the pores, which can be significant in many cases as the suction action provides an advantage over manual extraction methods.
4. Infusion of Vital Ingredients
In the final step, a vortex-fusion tool is used to infuse beneficial ingredients into the deeper dermal layers where they can have the greatest effect. Hyaluronic acid is commonly infused during this step since it is an effective skin moisturizer.
We can also apply peptides for turning back the clock and antioxidants to protect the skin from additional damage. The serum can be tailored to your precise needs, ensuring you receive the best possible results from your treatment.
No Pain, But Plenty of Gain
You should not feel any discomfort during the 15 to 45 minutes spent on your HydraFacial. In fact, the procedure should feel quite pampering as we walk you through the steps of the process.
Most of our patients are in and out of our office within about 30 minutes, sporting a healthy radiance as they head back to their daily activities. You will be able to reapply makeup immediately following your procedure, which makes this indeed the lunchtime treatment.
It’s also essential to apply sun protection, so those powerful UV rays do not interfere with the positive benefits of your treatment!

Maintaining Your Healthy Glow
While the results of your HydraFacial will be seen right away, they won’t last forever. The benefits will begin to fade in the weeks following your procedure.
The good news is you can maintain your refreshed appearance by scheduling monthly maintenance treatments and supporting those results with the right skin care products at home. Because the procedure is relatively quick and there is no downtime afterward, you should be able to keep up with a healthy skin care regimen without a significant disruption in your daily schedule.
Now is the time to say goodbye to sun damage and other skin concerns, and hello to a softer, glowing complexion. Contact Vein Care Center at 419-227-4472 to schedule your HydraFacial today.
