Understanding the Different Types of HydraFacials

The HydraFacial™ delivers deep cleansing, exfoliation, and hydration for a fresh, radiant complexion. With customizable options to target fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, and acne, you can get the results you desire.

The HydraFacial™ is an innovative skin care treatment that’s growing in demand thanks to its ability to deliver dramatic results with minimal downtime. Unlike a traditional facial, which may only provide temporary benefits, a HydraFacial can deeply cleanse, exfoliate, and hydrate your skin to leave you with a radiant, glowing complexion.

The expert providers at Medical Aesthetics & Laser in The Woodlands, Texas, are committed to providing top-quality care, and they offer an array of treatments, including HydraFacials, which can help you maintain healthy, youthful-looking skin. With several types of HydraFacials to choose from, you can customize your treatment to meet your unique needs and goals. 

What is a HydraFacial?

A HydraFacial is a medical-grade facial that cleanses, exfoliates, extracts, and hydrates the skin. This multi-step treatment is designed to improve the overall health and appearance of the skin, while addressing specific concerns, such as fine lines, wrinkles, acne, and hyperpigmentation.

The process involves a deep cleanse, a gentle acid peel, extractions using a suction tool, and the application of serums that are tailored to your skin's unique needs.

How is the HydraFacial different from a typical facial?

Unlike a traditional facial, which typically involves manual extractions and exfoliation, a HydraFacial uses vortex technology to deliver serums to the skin.

This means that a HydraFacial is generally gentler on the skin, and it can be more effective at addressing specific skin issues. Additionally, a HydraFacial can be adjusted to address your individual concerns and goals, making it a highly customizable treatment.

What are the types of HydraFacials?

There are three main types of HydraFacials: Signature, Deluxe, and Platinum.


The Signature HydraFacial is a 30-minute treatment that provides a thorough cleanse, exfoliation, extraction, and hydration. This option is ideal for those who are new to HydraFacials or simply want a quick and effective treatment.


The Deluxe HydraFacial includes everything in the Signature HydraFacial, but this 40-minute treatment also includes a booster serum and LED light therapy. The Deluxe HydraFacial is ideal for those who are looking for a targeted treatment but don't necessarily need the comprehensive treatment offered in the next therapy.


The Platinum HydraFacial is the most comprehensive option. This 60-minute facial includes everything in the Signature and Deluxe HydraFacials, but it also provides a lymphatic drainage massage. This treatment is ideal for those who are looking for a highly targeted, comprehensive treatment that will address all of their skin concerns.

What is it like to get a HydraFacial?

Getting a HydraFacial is a relaxing and painless experience. After a consultation with your skin care professional to determine your concerns and goals, you  lie down while your provider uses a hand-held device to treat your skin.

Some people compare the sensation to a cool mist on the skin. After the treatment, you can return to your regular activities without any downtime.

What results can I expect from a HydraFacial?

The results of a HydraFacial are immediate and noticeable. After the treatment, your skin should look and feel smoother, brighter, and more hydrated. Over time, you may also notice improvements in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, and acne. Since the treatment is highly customizable, you can expect to see targeted improvements in the areas that are most concerning to you.

Additionally, since a HydraFacial is a deep cleansing treatment, it can remove buildup and impurities from your skin, which can lead to a more even skin tone and texture over time. Regular HydraFacial treatments can help maintain these results and keep your skin looking healthy and radiant.

What boosters can I add to a HydraFacial?

One of the benefits of a HydraFacial is that it can be customized with a variety of booster serums to address specific concerns. Some common boosters include growth factors to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, brightening agents to even out skin tone, and acne-fighting serums to help clear up breakouts. 

Whether you're dealing with dryness, dullness, or signs of aging, a HydraFacial is a fantastic way to improve the health and appearance of your skin.
