In order for the skin on your face to look and feel as healthy as possible, it must be allowed to breathe and then it must be thoroughly cleaned and moisturized. Over time, accumulated dead cells and other impurities, such as blackheads, whiteheads and pimples, block the pores of your skin, giving it a dull, pasty appearance. So why not treat your skin cells to a professional deep-cleaning, revitalizing treatment that combines respiration and hydration?

In the past few years, in terms of facial care and treatments, the HydraFacial has surpassed classic deep-cleaning procedures by far.

Face care

True face care encompasses deep-cleaning treatments that thoroughly eliminate dead cells and other impurities, revitalizing your skin and allowing it to breathe. These procedures also give you the opportunity to pamper yourself with a much-needed moment of relaxation.

The HydraFacial

This treatment is the ultimate in face care—a veritable revolution in the beauty industry. It allies classic skincare treatments with the most advanced technologies in esthetic medicine for in-depth cleaning and hydration.

The four basic phases of the treatment

  1. Deep cleansing and exfoliation with an active serum that dislodges dead skin cells and eliminates excess sebum
  2. Gentle glycolic acid peeling, which prepares the skin to facilitate the extraction of blackheads, whiteheads and other impurities
  3. Extraction during which the pores of the skin are painlessly cleaned using an automated suction device
  4. Hydration with the aid of hyaluronic acid and antioxidants to protect the skin, restoring its volume and firmness

Each phase of the treatment is carried out using patented HydroPeel® Tips, which precisely target problem areas. These tips make it possible to deeply exfoliate the skin in multiple passes in order to ensure uniform results.

The HydraFacial treatment will fortify your skin, giving it a healthier, more youthful appearance, as well as a fresh, luminous glow. At the same time, it will give you a moment of relaxation and pleasure, promoting a general sense of well-being.

Several different variations of the HydraFacial treatment, lasting anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour and 15 minutes, are available to suit your needs, including clarifying treatments, basic or deluxe purifying treatments, anti-aging treatments and treatments for mature skin.


Considering that your skin cells renew themselves approximately every 28 days, a HydraFacial treatment or a facial is recommended once a month, if possible. Otherwise, since every change of season can be rough on your skin, it’s advisable to get a professional deep-cleaning treatment at least four times a year, each time the temperature begins to fluctuate.

These types of face care procedures should always be performed at a beauty salon by a qualified, licensed esthetician. It’s a moment of relaxation allowing you to pamper yourself, while restoring a youthful glow to your face.
