HydraFacial in Washington D.C.

If you’re looking for a way to cleanse, exfoliate, and hydrate your skin, a Hydrafacial at West End Plastic Surgery will help your complexion glow. Hydrafacial leaves your skin looking brighter, smoother, and more radiant immediately after the treatment, with long-term benefits for skin health and vitality. It's suitable for all skin types and can be customized to address specific concerns, making it a popular choice for individuals seeking a nonsurgical, rejuvenating skincare solution.

What Is a Hydrafacial?

Hydrafacial uses patented technology to cleanse, extract, and hydrate with individualized serums made with nourishing ingredients. This non-invasive, three-step treatment is performed via a specialized vacuum device. This allows for deeper penetration of the serums and yields longer-lasting results.

How Does a Hydrafacial Work?

At West End Plastic Surgery, our team of experienced medical professionals takes the time to assess your skin and determine what can be corrected and the best way to do so. With each Hydrafacial treatment, you can expect to undergo this three-step process:

  1. A wand will be used to extract dirt and oil from the pores on your face. After this, you will receive a deep cleanse.
  2. A light peel will then help exfoliate and resurface the skin.
  3. We’ll then apply customized moisturizing serums to address your unique skin concerns.

Benefits of a Hydrafacial

A Hydrafacial can provide many benefits to your complexion, including:

  • Cleansing the skin at a deep level
  • Improving uneven skin tone
  • Reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
  • Eliminating sun damage, brown spots, and age spots

  • Preventing acne
  • Brightening overall complexion

Suitable for all skin types, the 45-minute Hydrafacial is a painless skin rejuvenation treatment recommended treatment for all patients. You will begin to notice improvement in your skin’s complexion after just one treatment.

Determining the Best Hydrafical for Your Skin Type

The Hydrafacial treatment is adaptable to various skin types, so everyone can see optimal skincare results. Whether you have oily, dry, sensitive, or combination skin, our team can customize the Hydrafacial to meet your unique needs:

  • Oily Skin: For those battling excessive oil and acne, the Hydrafacial provides deep pore cleansing and uses salicylic acid serums to manage sebum levels and clear out impurities.
  • Dry Skin: The intense hydration serums are rich in hyaluronic acid and antioxidants. These ingredients deeply moisturize the skin, leaving it supple and reducing the appearance of fine lines and flakiness.
  • Sensitive Skin: Our approach can include mild exfoliants and soothing serums that enhance the skin's barrier without causing irritation. This careful customization ensures comfort and radiance without redness or reactivity.
  • Combination Skin: Balancing combination skin involves targeting areas differently, using stronger serums on oily zones, and hydrating components on dry patches. This method gives you a more balanced complexion.

Hydrafacial vs. Traditional Facial

Choosing between a Hydrafacial and a traditional facial depends on your skincare needs and preferences. Hydrafacial uses advanced technology for deep cleansing, extraction, and hydration. It shows immediate improvements with no downtime and is ideal for all skin types, including sensitive ones. It’s particularly effective for targeting specific concerns like acne or aging.

Traditional facials provide a relaxing experience with a hands-on approach, including massages that improve circulation and overall skin health. These facials can cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturize based on your skin's needs, though results may appear more gradually.

Both options will improve your skin health – Hydrafacial delivers quick, targeted results, while traditional facials offer a soothing, comprehensive treatment. There’s something for everyone!

Are There Any Side Effects or Downtime After a Hydrafacial?

There is no downtime needed after a Hydrafacial. While some patients may experience redness after treatment, this is completely normal and should subside within several hours.

Are the Results of a Hydrafacial Immediate?

Yes! Patients will see improvement immediately after treatment. Because hydration is essential for glowing, healthy skin, patients leave their treatments with more radiant complexions.

How Long Do the Results of a Hydrafacial Last?

Because the skin replaces itself every four weeks, we recommend patients schedule Hydrafacial treatments every four to six weeks to maintain their clean skin, effortless glow, and improved complexion.

How Does a Hydrafacial Reduce Signs of Aging?

A Hydrafacial starts with exfoliation, removing dead skin cells to lessen fine lines and promote new cell growth. Following this, a vacuum-like extraction clears the pores, which helps prevent skin issues that contribute to an aging appearance. The skin is then infused with hydrating serums containing hyaluronic acid, which plumps and smooths wrinkles, while antioxidants protect against free radicals that can accelerate aging. Regular Hydrafacial treatments help improve your skin texture and firmness, making you look more youthful and radiant.

Can I Combine a Hydrafacial With Other Treatments?

Yes, a Hydrafacial can be safely combined with other skin treatments, such as LED light therapychemical peels, or microneedling. It's important to consult with your skin care professional about the best combination for your skin type and goals. 

What Should I Do Before a Hydrafacial Treatment?

Before your Hydrafacial, we recommend you avoid using any harsh skincare products that contain exfoliants or retinol for about 48 hours. You should also skip waxing and avoid excessive sun exposure to prevent skin sensitivity during the treatment. Make sure your skin is clean and free from makeup on the day of your appointment.

Is a Hydrafacial Safe for Sensitive Skin?

Absolutely! Hydrafacial is known for its gentleness and suitability for sensitive skin. The treatment can use specific serums and adjusted intensities for sensitive skin. It avoids harsh chemicals, making it a safe option if you’re prone to irritation. Discussing any known sensitivities with your skincare provider beforehand will give you a comfortable and positive experience.
