Many people have added a new tool to their skincare routine. A HydraFacial® smooths and brightens the skin for a youthful glow. You can have one as often as you want, whether you are preparing for an event or want to keep your skin looking vibrant and healthy. 

What is a HydraFacial®? 

HydraFacial® offers a non-invasive, relaxing way to refresh and restore your skin. This treatment uses a three-step process to leave your skin fresh and luminous. One HydraFacial® treatment removes dull surface skin, clears and tightens pores, and infuses the skin with intensive serums. HydraFacial® works for dry, oily, and sensitive skin and requires no downtime.

How Long Does a HydraFacial® Last? 

You will see the most noticeable brightness and softness during the first week, but the results can last longer. We recommend monthly sessions if you want to treat skin concerns like hyperpigmentation. You can have a HydraFacial® as often as you want, and many people find that monthly treatments maintain their clear, smooth skin. 

How Does a HydraFacial® Work? 

HydraFacial® uses three steps to achieve its glowing results.

Cleanse and Peel

The first step deeply cleanses your skin, then exfoliates away layers of dead skin cells. This is followed by a mild chemical peel to refresh and brighten. 


HydraFacial® uses vortex technology to remove dead cells, debris, and pore-clogging oils. This step leaves skin looking smoother and clearer. 

Hydrate and Treat

After intensive hydration, HydraFacial® nourishes and treats your skin with one of several targeted serums. These can focus on pigmentation, fine lines, acne, and many other concerns

What Can a HydraFacial® Treat?

HydraFacial® specializes in brightening and smoothing your skin, but it can have many other benefits. Long-term benefits usually require a series of monthly sessions. Your HydraFacial® treatment can target skin concerns including:

  • Sun damage
  • Dark spots
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Rough texture
  • Oily or dry skin
  • Clogged pores and acne
  • Dullness

The HydraFacial® serums will continue to work for several days after treatment, boosting your results and helping your skin look fresh and energized. While the most intensive results last about a week, you may have smoother skin and smaller pores for a month or more.

Capital laser and skin care is the best dermatology practice I’ve ever been to. I’ve seen both Dr. Peters and Dr. Tanzi, who are both extremely intelligent, caring, highly skilled, practical – and gorgeous! The staff is excellent – very caring, skilled, excellent training, professional, and easy to talk to. I highly recommend Capital Laser to anyone seeking to take fabulous care of their skin.
