What Is A Hydrafacial?

When a skincare treatment first comes out, everyone talks about it because it’s the newest thing. However, when people continue to talk about it years into its existence, you know it’s the real deal. At Sculpt MD, located in Havertown, PA, we are proud to offer the Hydrafacial, a skin-perfecting facial that will transform your complexion and help you achieve a long-lasting glow that radiates the vibrancy of youth.

What Is a Hydrafacial?

The Hydrafacial is more than just your standard facial. It’s a skin-perfecting treatment that uses a patented Vortex-Fusion delivery system to perfect the skin in an innovative way. This facial performs a three-step process during a 30-minute window to help you achieve the best skin of your life.

It uses customizable serums containing nutrient-rich ingredients to moisturize, perfect, and nourish your skin. The facial will cleanse your skin, exfoliate dead skin cells, extract impurities, and deliver deep dehydration.


This facial is known for its patented Vortex-Fusion delivery system. That means you can’t find any other treatment or device that can perform this process and deliver the same kind of results; it’s one of a kind.

It painlessly cleanses, exfoliates, and perfects skin by extracting impurities and nourishing that new layer of skin. It’s effective, proven, and has become a permanent fixture in the cosmetic world that patients continue to turn to to help them achieve and maintain their best skin ever.


One of the reasons patients love this treatment is that it can address multiple skin concerns at once. It can improve one or multiple skin imperfections and help enhance your skin in a way that your at-home skincare routine simply cannot. It can:

  • Combat inflammation and irritation
  • Smooth and refine the complexion
  • Improve skin tone and texture
  • Restore youth to the complexion by firming the skin
  • Deliver advanced hydration
  • Brighten in the complexion
  • Improve those often neglected, smaller areas of the face like the lip and eye areas

Patients choose this treatment to address fine lines and wrinkles, skin laxity, poor skin tone, dull-looking skin, skin texture issues, hyperpigmentation, oversized pores, and oily or acne-prone skin.


You’ll see immediate results post-treatment. Your results will continue to improve and build with every treatment that you experience.


Another one of the many benefits of this specialized facial is that everyone is a candidate. Even those with ultra-sensitive skin can safely schedule this treatment to achieve that post-facial glow without worrying about inflammation or irritation.

The patented technology eliminates the fear of that post-facial breakout because it targets your skin in a gentle yet effective way. Men and women who want to improve their complexion can schedule this treatment and achieve some incredible results.

The Three-Step Process

The patented technology used during this treatment allows us to perform the three-step process to reveal your brighter, younger layer of skin that’s been hiding beneath a layer of dead skin cells.


The first step in this unique facial is the cleanse and peel step. We will gently exfoliate and resurface your skin during this first step while cleansing the dirt from its surface. This type of exfoliation is gentle yet effective and uncovers that brighter layer beneath. Exfoliation is essential to the skin, but certain types of exfoliating treatments are too harsh and too aggressive for some skin types.

The wrong type of exfoliation can result in the opposite effect. It can leave you with irritated, inflamed, and even damaged skin. The exfoliation techniques used during this facial are gentle yet effective enough to remove the dead skin cell barrier that prevents you from experiencing younger, brighter-looking skin.


The second step in the Hydrafacial is the extract and hydrate phase. This step involves deep cleansing and the removal of dirt, oil, and debris from the pores. It’s easy to go through the motions when you are performing your skincare routine.

Even though you may be using an effective cleanser to dissolve oil from your skin’s surface every night, your pores still can remain clogged with buildup that can make it more prone to blemishes and acne. This facial uses a suction technique to painlessly remove that buildup from the pores so that you can have clearer, cleaner, and brighter skin.


The goal of the third step of the Hydrafacial is to deliver antioxidants and peptides to your fresh, younger layer of skin. The ingredients in your customized serum will not only deliver that post-facial glow but will last for days afterward. They’ll also protect your new layer of skin and deliver the nutrients it needs to maintain optimal skin health between treatments.

Our Hydrafacials

When you choose our office for your Hydrafacial, you will be able to choose from three different options. Each of these customized facials targets a different skin concern, and if you’re not sure which one is right for you, your esthetician can walk you through the details of each, evaluate your skin, and help determine which choice is the best for your needs.


The signature version of this facial is the basic version, but it’s anything but basic. It involves the standard three-step process, and you’ll get to experience deep cleansing, gentle yet effective exfoliation, and painless extractions. Once your treatment is over, your skin will look and feel cleaner, brighter, and will have an undeniable glow.

This version of the facial is a good option for those who have never experienced a Hydrafacial before or for those with good skin that don’t have any significant skin issues but simply want to make their good skin even better.


The deluxe version of this facial includes all aspects of the signature version, plus some specialized extras. During the facial, you’ll experience the standard three-step process as well as a booster treatment that we customize to address your skin concerns. Once we perform the facial and apply the booster, we will end the treatment with LED light therapy.

LED light therapy is a simple yet effective treatment that uses a combination of red, blue, or green lights to help improve the skin. It can reduce inflammation, increase collagen production, increase cellular turnover rate, destroy the bacteria that causes acne, brighten the skin, and address hyperpigmentation.


The platinum version of this facial includes all of the standard Hydrafacial steps as well as lymphatic drainage. Lymphatic drainage is an advanced massage technique that helps sculpt the face and eliminate excess fluids.

It helps increase oxygen flow to the skin, promotes increased circulation, and can help enhance your post-facial glow. This version of the facial also includes a booster customized to meet your skin’s needs, as well as LED light therapy to help perfect your skin and enhance your results.
