Your skin is a beautiful thing. When it is flawless, smooth and glowing, it gives off the essence that you possess youthfulness and are teeming with vitality. By having a HydraFacial® treatment, your skin can attain this beauteous quality. HydraFacial® is a comprehensive treatment that features three different phases. The unique treatment is perfect if you need to boost your complexion just in time for a special event or you can maintain your vibrant results by having it performed in monthly intervals.

HydraFacial® is a gentle, versatile treatment suitable for almost every skin type and is customizable based on your unique cosmetic concerns. Schedule a HydraFacial® consultation at Skin Artisans at Edina Plastic Surgery by calling 952-234-8414 or visiting our contact page.


HydraFacial® is the only hydradermabrasion treatment that simultaneously combines hydration, serum infusion, cleansing, exfoliation, and extraction. Hydradermabrasion is an exfoliating treatment that dispenses water and air at high speeds along your skin to remove impurities. It is combined with a chemical peel for resurfacing and a gentle suction. HydraFacial® is a very gentle treatment, making it suitable for nearly any skin type. If performed regularly, HydraFacial® can not only improve your superficial cosmetic concerns but improve your skin’s health. The exceptional treatment stimulates your natural production of collagen, a structural protein in your skin that maintains its firmness and elasticity and restores crucial nutrients.

HydraFacial® is a soothing and moisturizing treatment that’s well-suited for a range of skin types, including thin or aging skin, dry skin and oily skin. The versatile treatment can treat an array of cosmetic concerns. Compared to other treatments, such as microdermabrasion, which utilizes a consistent spray of crystals to remove skin impurities, it is gentle, comfortable and doesn’t result in redness or swelling. Essentially, HydraFacial® is the perfect option for sensitive skin types.


HydraFacial® can improve the following cosmetic concerns:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Skin elasticity and firmness
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Dull skin
  • Congested pores
  • Enlarged pores
  • Oils resulting in acne
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Brown spots

HydraFacial® is the perfect treatment if you seek to treat cosmetic flaws just in time for a significant event, such as a wedding, anniversary, birthday or family gathering. It’s best to schedule the treatment one week in advance if you wish for your skin to look its best for an event.

The treatment is suitable for men and women of any skin tone, type and age. While HydraFacial® is a notably gentle treatment, some contraindications may prevent you from having it performed. A patient with severe cystic acne, active herpes, is currently breastfeeding or pregnant or has a cancer diagnosis should not have a HydraFacial® treatment. During an initial consultation, our provider will assess your skin’s quality to determine if you are a suitable HydraFacial® candidate.


The HydraFacial® treatment process can be broken down into three steps. The length of each step depends on your unique needs. The treatment is customizable based on what cosmetic flaws you’re seeking to treat. The three HydraFacial® steps are:

Cleansing and Peeling: Your HydraFacial® will begin with a deep cleansing of your pores that includes a mix of botanical cleansers and other ingredients that are hydrating and soothing. This process is gentle and relaxing. Your pores will be opened, and any debris and dead skin cells are removed with a suction tip. A chemical peel consisting of glycolic and salicylic acid is then applied to remove dead or damaged skin cells. The peel will help reveal a more radiant complexion. As with any chemical peel, you may experience a slight tingling sensation, but the peel is very mild and should not result in pain.

Extraction and Hydration: A vacuum-like tip is then applied to suction blackheads and any other remaining skin impurities. This tip is called the vortex-extraction nozzle, uniquely designed to be painless while still resulting in an even extraction of non-inflamed impurities across your face. The extraction process also helps improve circulation by activating your lymphatic system, which encourages drainage. After extracting excess impurities, a customized cocktail of serums is applied to your skin to promote hydration. The customized cocktail of serums may include peptides, antioxidants, stem cells, growth factors, and collagen.

Infusion and Protection: As the serums remain on your skin, they will begin to infuse into your dermal structure, replenishing your skin with vital nutrients, giving your complexion a youthful glow and making sure the longevity of your results. Serum Boosts can also be applied if you desire. Boosts are very potent serums formulated for specific concerns, such as sun damage or if your collagen production has noticeably declined. Before the end of your HydraFacial® treatment, our provider will protect your results by applying moisturizer and sunscreen.

HydraFacial® is a treatment that requires no downtime. Immediately afterward, you can return to work or other daily activities. However, if you have very sensitive skin or allergies, you may need a day or two of downtime before returning to work. Your skin may appear red or tight initially, but this will go away shortly and can be covered up with cosmetics.

After just one HydraFacial® session, you will notice results. Your skin will be more hydrated, vibrant, soft and even in tone. If you have a particular serum Boost added to your treatment, that specific concern it’s formulated to treat will be noticeably diminished. Your results should last for approximately five to seven days. However, it is possible to maintain your results by having regular HydraFacial® sessions. Patients often have HydraFacial® performed every month and incorporate it into their skincare regimen.


HydraFacial® is a unique treatment that blends essential exfoliating steps for the ultimate rejuvenating experience. Hydration, impurity extraction, serum infusion and cleansing are some of the steps you will experience during your HydraFacial® treatment. The treatment is perfect if you want to have flawless skin during a significant event or if you seek to have flawless skin in general. The treatment can be performed at regular intervals, allowing you to maintain your beautiful results.
