HydraFacial Q & A

What is HydraFacial MD?

HydraFacial MD is a medical-grade facial resurfacing treatment that uses vacuum technology and advanced serums to clean, exfoliate, hydrate, and infuse your skin with healthy, hydrating treatments.

One session with HydraFacial takes about 30 minutes and doesn’t demand downtime, and you’ll see immediate improvement in your skin.*

How Does My Skin Improve with HydraFacial?

HydraFacial is a good option for anyone who wants healthier, more vibrant skin. In addition to the deep cleansing and exfoliation, your HydraFacial is customized with serums and treatments that can:

  • Smooth uneven skin tone
  • Remove facial redness
  • Minimize brown spots
  • Diminish fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improve skin texture
  • Treat oily skin


Blackheads are naturally removed due to the unique combination of cleansing and suction.

How Does HydraFacial Work?

The experts at Vanguard Dermatology perform your facial with a handpiece that sends cleansers and serums to your skin and then applies them using a tip that rotates in a spiral motion. At the same time, gentle suction exfoliates and removes impurities.

During your session, the HydraFacial goes through a stepwise process. First, it uses a cleansing serum to remove dead skin cells. Then your provider at Vanguard Dermatology replaces the cleanser with exfoliating products like glycolic acid.

After applying the exfoliant to your skin, your provider uses suction to open and clean your pores. Finally, your skin is infused with treatments that nourish and treat your skin, such as antioxidants.

What Specialized Serums Does HydraFacial Use to Treat My Skin?

HydraFacial offers a variety of add-on boosters to use at the end of your treatment. You can choose the one that meets your specific skin care concerns. A few of the serums available include:

  • Dermabuilder™ Boost: This serum infuses your skin with peptides that hydrate and firm your skin, diminish fine lines, and even out skin tone.
  • Brightalive® Boost: Bright Alive Boost contains skin brighteners and glycerin that can help reduce skin discolorations and improve skin tone.
  • Growth Factor Boost: When you use this serum, your skin is infused with growth factors, which activate stem cells that maintain strong, healthy skin. This serum can also diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Britenol™ Boost: The Britenol Boost contains antioxidants and natural extracts designed to minimize dark spots and treat sun damage.
