• Roaccutane treatment (must be ceased 6 months prior to hydrafacial) • Recent facial surgery • Open wounds, dermatitis, severe active rosacea • Active Herpes Simplex Virus (cold sores) • Active radiation treatment in cancer patients • Allergies to Salicylates or Lactic Acid • Recent laser treatment, injectables or waxing (last 1 - 2 weeks) • Sunburn • Pregnancy and breast feeding
Yes you can! We often use the Hydrafacial® technology as a synergistic treatment with some of our other medical skin treatments. For example, preparing the skin with a short course of weekly Hydrafacials® prior to procedures such as laser resurfacing will improve the health and hydration of the skin, enabling it to respond better to the laser treatment.
Although you will be able to see and feel a difference following your very first HydraFacial® treatment, we generally recommend a course of treatments every 1-4 weeks until you have achieved your desired results, and then a maintenance HydraFacial® treatment every 4-6 weeks.
Unfortunately, no, we do not recommend having HydraFacial treatments while pregnant.
The average HydraFacial takes around 30 minutes but if you will be scheduling a combined treatment, naturally, it will take longer. Overall, it is possible to schedule a HydraFacial over your lunch break.
