What is a Hydrafacial?

If you're looking for an affordable, low-maintenance way to improve your skin's tone and texture, look no further than the dermatologists at Warrenton Dermatology & Skin Therapy Center in Warrenton, VA. We're now offering hydrafacials, which is quickly becoming one of the most popular cosmetic treatments available. If you're not familiar with hydrafacials, our dermatology team has compiled some basic information so you can educate yourself prior to scheduling a hydrafacial for yourself.

How it works

A hydrafacial offers three treatments in one: it cleans the skin, extracts buildup from pores, and hydrates the skin. An infusion of serums to brighten the skin or reduce fine lines can also be included. A small hand-held device is used to perform all of the steps, also offering the benefit of stimulating the skin's lymphatic processes and circulation. Unlike other cosmetic facial treatments, it offers instant results with no downtime.

Who it helps

Unlike other cosmetic treatments, which often target specific conditions, hydrafacials from your Warrenton, VA, dermatologist offer something for almost everyone! From a teenager's acne to an adult's sun damage, the benefits of a hydrafacial aren't limited to one particular patient group. It's a great way to boost your skin's appearance before an important event, such as a wedding or photo session, and can be performed monthly. The only people who should avoid hydrafacials are those with active rashes or sunburns; these conditions should be managed before scheduling a hydrafacial. As with many other cosmetic treatments, our pregnant patients should wait until after they deliver.
