What is Hydrafacial?
The HydraFacial treatment is a non-invasive treatment that provides instant results for all skin types while having no downtime. The basic HydraFacial is a (30 minute) treatment that removes dead skin cells and also extracts impurities. At the same time, it infuses the skin with cleansing, hydrating, and moisturizing serums. The treatment is soothing, refreshing, and immediately effective.
The HydraFacial treatment is appropriate for all skin types, and it is non irritating. Therefore, Even the most sensitive skin easily tolerates the treatment. At Dr. Sean Weiss – Facial Plastic Surgery, we deliver medical grade treatment serums in order to customize the treatment for your unique skin condition and needs.

How Dr. Weiss performs Hydrafacials
The standard Hydrafacial treatment is performed in approximately thirty minutes. It involves three simple steps that are designed to help enhance the health and appearance of your skin.
First, the device provides gentle exfoliation and relaxing resurfacing to reveal a new layer of skin. Then, it uses suction to remove dirt and debris from pores while applying moisturizers. Finally, it bathes the skin’s surface in peptides and antioxidants for a beautifully boosted glow.
