Many times, people don’t think about their skin until something looks wrong or signs of aging begin to appear. This can be especially true for the face. It’s only when the lines, wrinkles, and blemishes develop do we then think of ways to reverse the signs of aging or use treatments to prevent more from forming. While there are many treatments that can help rejuvenate and reverse these skin conditions, HydraFacial is a procedure that helps keep your skin looking young and maintain its healthy complexion.
At North Texas Plastic Surgery, our board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sacha Obaid believes in offering a range of procedures and Med Spa treatments to help address nearly any aesthetic issue our patients may have. HydraFacial is the latest in our line of skin rejuvenation treatments we provide to help you look and feel your best.

What is HydraFacial?
HydraFacial is a non-invasive exfoliating treatment used to rejuvenate the skin on the face and to promote healthier skin over time. As early as our 20s, we begin to lose one percent of the collagen in our skin each year. Collagen is the natural substance in the skin that helps keep skin tight, smooth, and plump. As collagen begins to break down, the skin on our face starts to lose its volume and lines and wrinkles form.
Beyond losing collagen and elastin, which is another natural component of the skin that helps its elasticity, lifestyle factors affect the health of our skin as well. Sun exposure is credited with being a major factor in the health and appearance of our skin, as well as smoking and using harsh products that dry out or irritate the skin. All of these factors can cause the face to show signs of aging.
HydraFacial is an exfoliating treatment that uses a blend of different serums that are infused into the skin—such as hydrating serums and acne serums—depending on the patient needs. Using patented technology, HydraFacial cleanses and hydrates the skin while its nourishing serums helps give the skin a healthy glow.
This treatment can help address nearly any type of skin condition on the face, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Issues of elasticity and firmness
- Even the skin’s tone and vibrancy
- Skin texture
- Brown spots
- Oily and congested skin
- Enlarged pores
How HydraFacial Works
The HydraFacial treatment session is relatively quick at just around 30 minutes. This gentle procedure is safe for all skin types and can be tailored to your specific skincare needs. It works by removing dead skin cells on the face while also extracting impurities that are often trapped in the pores. What’s more, it simultaneously washes the skin with hydrating and cleansing serums to enhance the treatment and provide an immediate look of healthy, radiant skin.
The process itself works by:
- Cleansing and peeling: The process begins by removing the dead skin on the outer layer of the face with gentle exfoliation and resurfacing
- Extraction and hydration: Next, debris is removed from the pores using gentle suction and the skin is hydrated with nourishing and intense moisturizers
- Fusing and protecting: Finally, the skin is saturated with antioxidants and peptides to enhance its radiance and appearance
The procedure requires no downtime and normal activities can be performed immediately after treatment. Most patients see results of glowing, radiant skin immediately which last for up to seven days. While one treatment does help reduce the appearance of faint lines and wrinkles, discoloration, and clogged and oily skin, multiple treatments are often necessary to maintain the rejuvenated effects and promote the healthy revitalization of the skin.
