Hydrafacial Q & A

What is Hydrafacial®?

Hydrafacial is a noninvasive cosmetic treatment that addresses your specific skin concerns, improving your skin's appearance and health. Unlike a traditional facial, the Hydrafacial uses a proprietary device to clean, extract, and hydrate your skin.

The Hydrafacial wand vacuums away dead skin cells, dirt, and debris to open up your pores. This extraction process allows for better penetration of the skin-nourishing serums. 

Limmer Dermatology offers the Hydrafacial because it’s a quick and effective treatment you can easily incorporate into your skincare routine. Regular Hydrafacials are a great way to keep your skin looking fresh and healthy.

What happens during Hydrafacial?

The team at Limmer Dermatology customizes your Hydrafacial based on your skin type and goals. However, every Hydrafacial includes three basic steps: cleanse, extract, and hydrate.


The cleanse portion of your Hydrafacial exfoliates your skin. The Hydrafacial wand uses a fluid vortex that loosens dead skin cells and extricates impurities from your pores.


After your cleanse, your provider at Limmer Dermatology uses the Hydrafacial wand to vacuum away the skin cells and debris from the surface of your skin. 


The Hydrafacial device saturates your skin with moisturizers and nourishing agents to address your specific skin concerns. The nourishing agents, called boosters, treat lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and enlarged pores.

Hydrafacial also offers enhancement boosters, which are specialized skin formulas that contain various peptides, vitamins, or growth factors to boost collagen production, protect the skin from free radicals, or reduce the appearance of sunspots.

Your team at Limmer Dermatology can talk to you about your Hydrafacial skin treatment options and what enhancement boosters, if any, may work best for you.

What can I expect after a Hydrafacial?

You can expect to see improvements in the look and health of your skin immediately following your Hydrafacial. The treatment takes only 30-60 minutes and instantly brightens your facial skin without downtime.

Hydrafacial is safe for all skin types. However, the team at Limmer Dermatology may not recommend the specialized facial if you have an active rash or rosacea. It’s also not recommended for pregnant women.
