Think you get enough water? A good rule of thumb is to drink at least half your body weight in ounces a day. So for example, if you weigh 150 pounds, you should try to get at least 75 ounces a day. Most people fall short of their water intake goal but don’t realize it. Your skin may be able to tell you the truth. If your skin is dull, feels tight, or is dry, peeling or flaky, you may be dehydrated.
Drinking plenty of water can help, but so can a facial.

What Is a HydraFacial™?
The HydraFacial™ is an innovative skin care treatment performed with a handheld device that blasts away old or damaged skin cells with liquid. The device uses a spiralizing treatment to ensure your pores are cleansed and skin is left looking great.
The HydraFacial™ procedure is designed to hydrate and refresh the skin in one step, which means no lengthy treatment plans.
The HydraFacial™ also means comfort. Unlike treatments like chemical peels, microdermabrasion and laser skin-rejuvenation services, the HydraFacial™ does not use rough diamond tips or abrasive chemicals to exfoliate damaged skin.
As a result, there’s no downtime or discomfort associated with the procedure.
The HydraFacial™ takes between 30 and 45 minutes and is designed to treat a variety of skin concerns.
Another plus to the procedure is that it can be used both on the face and the body. And, as it is more gentle than other treatments, it can be used in delicate or sensitive areas like near the eyes and lips.
What Are the Benefits of a HydraFacial™?
Individuals who choose the HydraFacial™ skin treatment frequently report that they see improvements in their skin’s appearance, such as:
- A reduction in the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and creases
- Removal of old and damaged skin
- Better skin tone
- Improved skin hydration
- Improved pigmentation and the lightening of dark spots, such as freckles or sunspots
- Increased skin firmness
- Improved elasticity
- Fewer acne breakouts
- Reduction of large pores
- Less puffiness under the eyes and a reduction in under-eye bags
- Softer lips
What to Expect During the HydraFacial™ Procedure
During the HydraFacial™, there are three steps to refreshing your skin:
Cleansing and Peeling. The first step to the HydraFacial™ procedure is to cleanse the skin. During this step, your skin will be treated with a light chemical peel application that uses a combination of lactic, alicyclic and glycolic acids to exfoliate dead skin cells and remove excess oil. The cleansing step helps to exfoliate and remove dead skin cells, pollution, dirt and clogged pores. The cleansing step helps your skin absorb healing serums.
Extraction and Hydration. The second step of the HydraFacial™ involves the gentle vacuuming of your skin to remove dirt and blackheads and unclog pores. While your pores are being cleansed, at the same time they are being saturated with moisturizers to soften the skin and help improve your skin quality. Your skin is left brighter, clearer and more beautiful.
Fusion and Protection. The third and final step of the HydraFacial™ skin care treatment is the application of skin-healing serums to your skin, which can include hyaluronic acid, antioxidants, and skin-strengthening peptides such as collagen and amino acids. These serums can improve your skin quality, elasticity and firmness. These treatments can also help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, making you look younger.
