What is HydraFacial MD?

Hydrafacial MD (Hydrafacial) is a non-invasive treatment that simultaneously removes the dead skin cells, cleanses out clogged pores, and rehydrates the skin, leaving it brighter and more rejuvenated. This unique facial occurs in four focused steps that bring the best in skincare techniques with the best in skincare products. Whether a regular part of your skincare regimen or as a deep rejuvenation before a big event, HydraFacial has a lot to offer your skin.

Who is a Candidate for HydraFacial?

As every HydraFacial treatment is customized, it can benefit any skin type— even highly sensitive or oily types. No matter your problem areas or skin’s condition, HydraFacial can provide the unique, exact benefits that your skin needs. During a consultation, your aesthetician can determine your skin type and which methods will benefit it most during your tailored HydraFacial treatment.

What Happens During HydraFacial Treatment?

The experienced Aestheticians at K Plastic Surgery perform the HydraFacial in a four-step process. The first includes a deep, exfoliating cleanse to remove dead skin cells and debris from the top layers of the skin. The second step includes a light peel to reveal a new, healthy layer of skin. Next, the skin’s pores are extracted using a powerful vortex suction that removes impurities (blackheads). Lastly, the skin is infused with Antioxidants, Hyaluronic Acid, and Peptides. This process detoxifies and rejuvenates the skin providing a healthy glow. HydraFacial and ZO SkinHealth have teamed up to create specialized serums that can be added to your treatment as well.

I cannot speak highly enough!

A family member is a patient of Dr. Kayastha and I cannot speak highly enough of how well she was treated from the consultation to the post op experience. He explained everything, her questions were answered and she was put at ease from the beginning. The office staff and his medical assistants are just as helpful. Four weeks out from her surgery and she is very pleased with her results. I would recommend this office to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon.
