Unveil your healthiest, clearest skin with a HydraFacial™ at Aesthetic Envy. HydraFacial™ has rapidly become one of the most popular skincare solutions on the market — and for good reason. The versatile treatment unclogs pores, exfoliates dead and damaged skin cells, hydrates dry skin and purifies the face in a gentle, all-in-one procedure. Even just one session with this state-of-the-art technology can refresh your complexion, leaving you feeling confident in your skin and ready to put your best face forward.

If you’re tired of getting lackluster results from your skincare routine and would like to see the difference a professional approach can make, HydraFacial™ can revolutionize the way you care for your complexion. Each Hydrafacial™ in Sacramento and Elk Grove includes three steps and can be customized with boosters and complementary treatments for complete facial restoration.

What Is HydraFacial™?

HydraFacial™ is the newest innovation in non-laser skin resurfacing. It is the only hydradermabrasion procedure that combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration and serum infusion simultaneously, resulting in clearer, more beautiful skin with no discomfort or downtime. The procedure is soothing, moisturizing, non-invasive and non-irritating. Most skin types — including thin or aging skin, dry skin and oily skin — can benefit from this gentle and adaptable treatment.

At Aesthetic Envy, patients can choose between a Gold, Platinum or Diamond HydraFacial™ treatment. Our Diamond and Platinum options enhance the Gold treatment with personalized Boosters and add-on Perks, like LED therapy and lymphatic drainage. Your procedure will be tailored to your skin type and your aesthetic goals.

What Is Hydradermabrasion and How Does It Work?

Both hydradermabrasion and microdermabrasion improve the complexion by exfoliating, enhancing tone and texture, and promoting collagen production. The primary difference is the mode of action.

Microdermabrasion uses medical-grade microcrystals to essentially “sand away” the surface layer of dead and damaged skin cells. Although this treatment can rejuvenate the skin initially, it is a harsher process that can be damaging for the skin long-term. The abrasive crystals used in microdermabrasion can make the procedure uncomfortable and cause swelling and redness following the treatment. Microdermabrasion isn’t recommended for patients with certain skin conditions, such as rosacea, or generally sensitive skin.

Hydradermabrasion is a water-based exfoliating treatment that dispenses water and air at a high speed. Rather than using crystals to scrape away impurities, hydradermabrasion exfoliates and resurfaces with a combination of a gentle chemical peel and painless suction. This is a far more gentle and relaxing procedure that almost anyone can undergo, including individuals with sensitive skin. When used regularly, HydraFacial™ actually improves the health — not just the superficial appearance — of the dermal tissue by restoring nutrients and stimulating collagen production.

What Are the Benefits of HydraFacial™?

HydraFacial™ involves an array of attachments that can address a wide range of concerns and goals. Benefits of this treatment include:

  • Improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Boosts elasticity and promotes firmness
  • Evens skin tone and enhances vibrance
  • Clears congested pores and minimizes enlarged pores
  • Reduces oil for acne-prone skin
  • Diminishes hyperpigmentation and brown spots

HydraFacial™ is an excellent treatment for patients seeking to rejuvenate their appearance before an event. Because it is gentle and involves minimal downtime, a HydraFacial™ treatment can safely be scheduled before a wedding, family gathering or any other occasion where it’s important to look your best. We recommend scheduling the treatment one week before an event to ensure optimal results.

Am I a Good Candidate for HydraFacial™?

HydraFacial™ is an option for men and women of any skin complexion, tone and age. There are, however, a few restrictions that make treatment inadvisable for some patients. HydraFacial™ is not recommended if:

  • You have severe cystic acne
  • You have an active herpes outbreak
  • Active Sunburn
  • Active Rash
  • Had Aesthetic fillers, injectables within two weeks
  • Have been on Accutane within the last 3 – 6 months

Our staff at Aesthetic Envy will assess your skin and discuss your aesthetic goals to determine whether HydraFacial™ is the best treatment option for you.

What Happens During a HydraFacial™ Treatment?

There are three different phases during a HydraFacial™ treatment. The length of each step and the attachments used depends on your needs and desired outcomes. The staff of Aesthetic Envy will customize your procedure to ensure you receive the best possible experience and results.

Cleansing and Peeling: The treatment begins with gentle exfoliation and relaxing resurfacing. This step opens the pores and sweeps away surface debris and dead skin cells using a suction tip, producing a healthy glow almost immediately. A peel containing glycolic and salicylic acids is then applied to provide further exfoliation benefits while hydrating the skin, brightening pigmentation and stimulating collagen production.

Extraction and Hydration: The next step focuses on extraction. The unique Vortex suction technology offers painless, even extraction across the full face to remove closed comedones and other non-inflamed breakouts and impurities. This phase also improves circulation and activates the lymphatic system to encourage drainage. Intense moisturizers are used to quench the skin before moving onto the final step.

Infusion and Protection: In the final phase, the skin’s surface is saturated with a customized concoction of antioxidants, collagen, peptides and other nourishing ingredients. These serums replenish the skin, give the complexion a youthful glow and ensure the longevity of the treatment. Which ingredients are chosen depends on the specific needs of your skin. We can also incorporate Boosts that produce even more dramatic results. Our Boosts are potent super-serums that are formulated to address specific skin problems, like pigmentation, sun damage, dehydration, loss of elasticity and reduced collagen production.

Your HydraFacial™ at Aesthetic Envy combines the benefits of a professional medical treatment with the rejuvenating ambiance of a spa service. We perform each HydraFacial™ in a comfortable and soothing treatment room, complete with tranquil music, soft ambient lighting and cozy blankets and pillows.

Is There Downtime After a HydraFacial™?

Most patients can resume normal activities immediately after a HydraFacial™. You can enjoy a pampering facial on your lunch break, then apply makeup and return to work as soon as your treatment is done. You may notice some redness or tightness for a brief period after your session, but this fades quickly and can be covered with cosmetics or eased with cold compresses.


What Results Can I Expect With HydraFacial™?

HydraFacial™ can deliver noticeable improvements after just one treatment. For enhanced benefits, this gentle procedure can be repeated regularly as part of your skincare regimen. We also recommend HydraFacial™ if you’re looking for an extra boost of confidence before a big event.

Many patients find it beneficial to combine their HydraFacial™ with additional treatments. At Aesthetic Envy, we offer treatment packages for patients who are interested in maximizing the health and beauty of their skin. Ask us about pairing your HydraFacial™ with rejuvenating treatments like LED light therapy or injectables like Botox and fillers.
