Dr. Hina Altaf Dermatologist



Everyone wants smooth, bright, and youthful-looking skin. Instead of spending a fortune on oils, creams, essences, and serums in a multistep skin-care routine, you may be able to achieve it in one session only.

Hydrafacial is a non-invasive, multi-step facial treatment that uses a special machine to cleanse, exfoliate, and hydrate the skin. It’s designed to improve the overall health and appearance of the skin, leaving it looking smoother, brighter, and more youthful.

Here’s how the treatment works

  1. Cleansing and exfoliation: The first step of the HydraFacial treatment involves using a special device to remove dead skin cells and impurities from the surface of the skin. The device uses a gentle vacuum suction to loosen and extract dirt, oil, and debris from the pores.
  2. Acid peel: The next step involves applying a mild acid peel to the skin. This helps to loosen dirt and oil that may be trapped deep within the pores, and also prepares the skin for the next step.
  3. Extraction: After the acid peel has been applied, the Hydrafacial device is used again to extract any remaining impurities from the pores. The suction is stronger in this step, but it’s still gentle enough not to damage the skin.
  4. Hydration: The final step of the Hydrafacial treatment involves infusing the skin with a specially formulated serum that contains antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid. This helps to hydrate and nourish the skin, leaving it looking and feeling refreshed.


The entire treatment usually takes around 30-45 minutes, and there is no downtime or recovery period. Many people find that their skin looks and feels smoother, brighter, and more hydrated immediately after the treatment.

Hydrafacial is suitable for all skin types, and it can be customized to address specific skin concerns, such as fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and acne. It’s also a great option for people who want to improve the overall health and appearance of their skin, but don’t want to undergo more invasive treatments like chemical peels or laser resurfacing.

Who should not get a HydraFacial

You should avoid a HydraFacial if:

  • you have an active rash, sunburn, or moderate to severe acne or rosacea.
  • you may have to tweak your normal skin-care routine before your appointment. It is recommended to stop using prescription creams for a few days before the treatment to avoid irritation
