HydraFacials are very popular because they don’t require any downtime. You can apply makeup the same day, but you may not even want to cover up the natural glow of your skin afterwards!

Hydrafacial Before & Afters


What to Expect?


Before your HydraFacial in Troy, you'll meet with one of our providers for a skin consultation. We will discuss any concerns you have about your skin, as well as what you’d like to accomplish.


You’ll be able to see and feel results from the HydraFacial immediately. It is also mild enough that we can combine it with other treatments during the same visit.

The Hydrafacial Process


Cleanse and exfoliate

Your aesthetician will begin by using a vortex cleansing and hydra-peel tip on the HydraFacial wand to gently cleanse and exfoliate your skin. This will remove dead skin cells and open up your pores.


Chemical peel

Next, we will change the tip on the wand to one that delivers a light and gentle chemical peel. A mix of salicylic and glycolic mix is used to loosen debris deep in your pores. Unlike other chemical peels though, the ones used in a HydraFacial do not cause any side effects such as redness of the skin.



In this step we use a strong, yet painless vortex vacuum to extract impurities, such as black heads from within the pores.


Hydrating Serum

Finally, we will use a proprietary anti-oxidative and hydrating serum with peptides and other nutrients. This blend will soothe, hydrate, and rejuvenate your skin.
