What is HydraBrasion?

The HydraBrasion treatment is a facial or body treatment which removes dead skin cells, blackheads/whiteheads and extracts impurities while also stimulating circulation and promoting increased blood flow to the area. The serum infusion system allows for serums to penetrate the deeper layers of the skin, resulting in hydrated, plump glowing skin.

Am I a candidate for this treatment?

The HydraBrasion treatment is designed for all skin types and can be used on all areas of the body and face. Even the most sensitive skin easily tolerates and will benefit with the HydraBrasion treatment. The treatment is NOT recommended if you have any open wounds, cystic acne, auto-immune disease, impetigo, or severe rosacea.

Is the treatment painful?

HydraBrasion treatment is non-invasive. It is a hydrating, gentle treatment when compared to older microdermabrasion treatment.  Most people find it to be a relaxing experience while creating improvements in their skin.

How does HydraBrasion work?

The HydraBrasion uses a few processes in combination.  There are a variety of diamond micro-dermabrasion tips to Exfoliates (for extremely sensitive skin right up to very thick oily skin), cleanses deeply while hydrating the skin while it Infuses serums.

Hydra-Exfoliate: The HydraBrasion treatment exfoliates and extracts using a diamond tip dermabrasion. Simultaneously, dead skin cells are suctioned and transported into a waste container.

Hydra-stimulate: HydraBrasion stimulates circulation and improves blood flow, which aids in tissue repair and reveals smoother skin.

Hydra-Infuse: The advanced technology system accepts a number of different serums targeting concerns such as acne, hydration & glowing.

How long does the treatment take?

The HydraBrasion treatment enhances the skin using a fast, efficient treatment that takes about 45 minutes to 1 hour in a full facial service or slightly longer or shorter for other body areas.

How Does HydraBrasion Take your skin to the next Level?

HydraBrasion is a dynamic process combining cleansing, extracting, exfoliating and infusing to give your skin the star treatment it deserves. Not to be confused with traditional microdermabrasion, this process is much gentler on the skin and much less irritating, particularly for those with sensitive skin.
