Genetics, life, and the passage of time all affect our skin’s appearance. So most all of us have certain concerns about our skin, no matter our age. At Eterna Cosmetic Surgery in San Antonio, we are proud to offer our patients a variety of skin rejuvenation options that address those individual concerns. HydraFacial MD® is one of those options, but this one is different.

What Is a HydraFacial?

A HydraFacial gives you three treatments in one, cleansing and exfoliating the skin, clearing the pores and hydrating the skin, and finishing up with a fusion of protective peptides and antioxidants. This unique treatment is safe and highly effective for all skin types, and the treatment itself feels great. It is very relaxing.

Our skilled aestheticians use HydraFacials to treat the face and neck and to improve the appearance of skin across the body. The HydraFacial treatment is so versatile, it effectively addresses acne scarring, wrinkles, brown spots, fine lines, enlarged pores, rough and dull skin.

What happens during a HydraFacial?

This is a soothing three-step process that uses proprietary “super serums” and patented technology to scrupulously clean and renew skin. In just 30 minutes.

First, your aesthetician cleanses the skin to relax it, then gently exfoliates the surface. Next, the aesthetician extracts impurities and debris from deeper within the pores and applies an infusion of nourishing moisturizers. Finally, she uses a scientifically-formulated blend of hyaluronic acid, peptides, and antioxidants to saturate the skin’s surface.

While HydraFacial treatment is equally effective for everyone, we tailor the treatment for each individual patient, based on your own concerns and skin renewal goals, to reveal your best skin.

Boosters further customize treatments

Bonus boosters are specialized serums that are added to tailor HydraFacial treatments even more personally for patients who have very specific skin concerns. BRIGHTALIVE brightens skin tone by minimizing discoloration. GROWTH FACTOR restores a vibrant appearance and skin health to minimize fine lines and wrinkles. DERMABUILDER recharges the skin with peptides to reduce signs of aging. And BRITENOL evens the complexion by minimizing sun spots and dark spots.

We also offer other specialized HydraFacial upgrades:

  • For the lips, the treatment exfoliates, hydrates and plumps. Plus, patients receive a complimentary 2-week supply of take-home products.
  • For the eyes, the treatment minimizes fine lines and wrinkles. Patients receive a complimentary 2-week supply of take-home products.
  • Lymphatic therapy for the face, neck and body. Gentle massage opens up and detoxifies the lymph system, to tone and firm skin and improve circulation. This treatment reduces fine lines, wrinkles, and puffiness.
  • LED light therapy. Red light addresses fine lines and wrinkles, rosacea, and sun damage. Blue light addresses acne scarring and blemishes caused by clogged pores. 

Who is a suitable candidate for a HydraFacial?

Everyone is a good candidate! Age, gender, skin type and skin color are not success factors, as they can be with other types of skin rejuvenation treatments. So you are a suitable candidate if you want fresher, smoother, more vibrant looking skin.

What can I expect after a HydraFacial?

There is no special preparation required prior to a HydraFacial, and there is no downtime afterward. Patients can go right back to their daily schedule. Because HydraFacial is non-irritating, makeup can be reapplied shortly after, if desired.

Right away, you will see more radiant, healthier looking skin. Although a single HydraFacial can make a noticeable difference in your skin’s appearance, most patients see the most dramatic improvement after multiple sessions. HydraFacial is so gentle (and so relaxing) you might want to visit Eterna Cosmetic Surgery every week for another treatment. Nonetheless, Dr. Hernandez recommends monthly sessions to achieve optimal, ongoing results.

After all, exposure to the elements and the aging process will continue to happen. With regular treatments, a HydraFacial can not only keep your skin looking its best, it will actually help improve long-term skin health.
