HydraFacial® takes many of the best elements of a standard facial and goes a number of steps further, ultimately allowing our aesthetic professionals to give your skin a healthier, more youthful, and refreshed glow. This treatment involves an innovative, patented three-step process that exfoliates and cleanses the skin, then infuses the skin with moisture, antioxidants, and other ingredients that can enhance hydration and dermal health. HydraFacial® treatment can minimize signs of aging, improve skin tone, reduce the appearance of sun damage and discoloration, and address numerous other common concerns. Our team at Shaw Plastic Surgery can meet with you to discuss your goals and help you determine if a customized HydraFacial® treatment is ideal for your needs.

What are the Benefits of HydraFacial®?
This state-of-the-art facial offers a variety of benefits for individuals of virtually any skin type. HydraFacial® is a non-surgical cosmetic enhancement option that can be a good solution for women and men who would like to:
- Diminish signs of wrinkles and fine lines
- Reduce the appearance of brown spots and other signs of hyperpigmentation
- Improve areas affected by dry or oily skin
- Improve areas affected by enlarged or clogged pores
- Improve skin affected by pimples and acne
- Achieve more even skin tone and texture
- Enhance the look, feel, and health of the skin
A HydraFacial® is most often performed for the face; however, it can also be used to improve areas such as the neck, décolletage, and other regions. Additionally, HydraFacial® procedures are known to be quite relaxing and pleasant experiences!
What Does the HydraFacial® Procedure Involve?
The beginning step of a HydraFacial® involves exfoliation via a special device that’s gently guided along the skin, which will remove dead skin cells, debris, and other irritants. Then, the skin will be cleansed and impurities will be loosened and suctioned from pores. The last step of the HydraFacial® process will deliver nutrient-rich solutions into the skin. This can help hydrate and moisturize the skin while enhancing its health and addressing signs of age and other common skin conditions.
HydraFacial® treatments typically only take about 30 minutes to complete. While a minor degree of redness and a mild “tight” sensation in the skin can be expected following the procedure, these effects should fade quickly, and recovery time is typically not necessary.
If desired, patients who undergo a HydraFacial® can also choose from a selection of “booster” serums that can be added on to the procedure. These serums include special formulations of ingredients that can be particularly helpful for specific types of skin concerns. We can talk with you about the available options during your consultation to see if the addition of a HydraFacial® “booster” may be ideal for your ultimate goals.
Does HydraFacial® Hurt?
HydraFacial® treatment should not produce discomfort. In fact, the techniques involved in HydraFacial® often create an enjoyable treatment experience. Some individuals have even compared the HydraFacial® treatment to that of a light massage.
What Can I Expect from HydraFacial® Results?
Many patients achieve noticeable facial rejuvenation after just one HydraFacial® treatment. Additional HydraFacial® procedures performed periodically in the future are often recommended in order to maintain healthier, more youthful-looking skin for an extended amount of time.
How Much Does a HydraFacial® Cost?
The general cost of a HydraFacial® at our practice starts at $149. The total price of a HydraFacial® treatment is variable among patients due to the customized nature of the procedure and the type and number of HydraFacial® “booster” serums that are added (if requested), so this cost range can be different for individuals depending on these factors. Once we develop your personalized HydraFacial® treatment plan, a member of our team will be able to present you with a final cost estimate and talk with you about the many payment methods we accept here at Shaw Plastic Surgery to make treatments as financially convenient as possible.
