Frequently asked questions

How long does the treatment take?

Although an ordinary HydraFacial can be completed in 30 minutes, the Medical-Grade HydraFacials we offer at Smooth M.D. range from 45 to 75 minutes in length. This additional time allows us to provide the extra steps and treatment boosts included with our premium HydraFacial services. Please review our HydraFacial menu for details about the various services we offer and their respective durations.

Is there any pain or downtime associated with the HydraFacial treatment?

At Smooth M.D. we pride ourselves in providing HydraFacial treatments that patients find enjoyable and relaxing (NOT painful). Accordingly, there is typically NO pain associated with a Smooth M.D. HydraFacial. Furthermore, since HydraFacial is a relatively gentle treatment which delivers instant gratifying results, there is also typically NO downtime. Immediately after the treatment you may elect to put on makeup and return to your daily activities.

What results can one expect with a Medical-Grade HydraFacial?

Many patients report visible skin refinement and a radiant skin tone after their first HydraFacial. In fact, most patients notice their face has a youthful glow IMMEDIATELY after the treatment. This glow is associated with the skin being throughly cleansed and hydrated with potent medical-grade serums.

How long will the results last?

Your Smooth M.D. results, and the hydration we deliver by bathing your skin with potent serums may last 5 to 7 days or even longer.

How often should one get a HydraFacial?

There are NO shortcuts to maintaining skin health. In order for HydraFacial to effectively support your long-term skin health initiatives, we recommend one medical-grade treatment per month. This one HydraFacial per month regiment is also recommended to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots, and oily congested skin.

What is a HydraFacial?

HydraFacial is a rejuvenating skincare treatment that can be completed in as little as 30 minutes. Regular HydraFacial treatments can contribute to long-term skin health. Each treatment can be customized to meet the specific needs of all skin types. It offers instant, gratifying results with typically no downtime or irritation. The HydraFacial treatment removes dead skin cells and extracts impurities while simultaneously bathing the new skin with cleansing, hydrating, and moisturizing serums. Patients often describe the treatment as soothing and refreshing. Best of all, it leaves your skin with a radiant glow that you will love.

What are the benefits of a medical-grade HydraFacial?

Standard HydraFacials can be offered at any salon or non-medical spa. A Medical-Grade HydraFacial, on the other hand, can only be provided at a medical practice by a qualified professional. Compared to ordinary (non-medical) HydraFacials, Smooth M.D. offers medical-grade treatments with more effective concentrations of active ingredients and specific boosts that only a medical facility can provide. These additional resources allow Smooth M.D. to deliver enhanced HydraFacial results and helps maximize the return on your skin health investment.

Hydration is the cornerstone of healthy, radiant skin. Furthermore, skin irritation has been proven to accelerate the signs of aging. As the name implies, HydraFacial is a treatment that hydrates and rejuvenates the skin without irritation.

Am I a candidate for this treatment?

HydraFacial is beneficial for all skin types. Even the most sensitive skin comfortably tolerates the HydraFacial treatment.
