HydraFacial is a non-invasive treatment that improves skin health, addresses individual concerns, and creates a glow like no other. Unlike traditional facials, it’s performed via device rather than by hand, for deeper penetration and longer lasting results. Why is HydraFacial different than other facials? The magic is in the wand, which works like a vacuum to open pores for a deep cleanse and easy extraction of impurities and dead skin cells. It also allows the active ingredients in our boosters to penetrate deeper, for the most effective treatment possible. Boosters are potent formulas packed with active ingredients that target and treat specific concerns. There is a large variety of boosters to choose from to customize your treatment.
