HydraFacial 101

With the plethora of skincare treatments available today, it can be difficult to find the best one for your needs. The HydraFacial is one option that’s suitable for a range of skincare needs, including fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation, acne, redness, and more.

At WellMedica, we offer the HydraFacial as a non-invasive solution for healthy, radiant skin. Read on to learn more about this popular aesthetic treatment and how it works. 

What is a HydraFacial?

Before we dive into the best candidates for a HydraFacial, let’s talk about the treatment itself.

HydraFacial is a multistep cosmetic treatment involving a specialized handheld device. To start, your provider will move the device, or wand, across your skin to deeply cleanse and exfoliate it. This step removes dead skin cells and debris and may be referred to as “hydradermabrasion”.

Next, your provider will use an attachment to vacuum debris and impurities from your pores. After this step, your pores will be open and ready to absorb an antioxidant-packed serum, chosen specifically to target your cosmetic concerns. 

The HydraFacial leaves behind no signs of irritation, and the skin is visibly more radiant immediately after the treatment. 

Am I a Good Candidate For a HydraFacial?

Since the HydraFacial is non-invasive, non-irritating, and tailored to each patient’s needs, it’s safe for all skin types and tones. It’s also suitable for patients of all ages. However, you may particularly benefit from the HydraFacial if you’re looking to tackle skin concerns, including:

  • Fine lines
  • Enlarged or congested pores
  • Acne breakouts
  • Age spots
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Dull, uneven skin tone
  • Dry, flaky skin
  • Uneven skin texture
  • Excess oil
  • Lost skin firmness

How Frequently To Schedule HydraFacials

Most patients undergo four to six HydraFacial sessions, with four to six weeks in between each session. Your provider may adjust this plan to meet your needs. After undergoing this series, you can plan to return for touch-up HydraFacials as recommended by your provider. 

Patients with significant skin concerns, such as frequent acne breakouts, advanced signs of aging, or notable discoloration may undergo HydraFacials as frequently as once monthly to maintain their results. Patients who simply undergo HydraFacials for brighter, healthier skin may only need touch-ups twice per year. 

What Makes WellMedica’s Medical HydraFacial Different?

Visia Skin Analysis 

At WellMedica in Reston, we offer a complimentary Visia skin analysis with our medical facials, including the HydraFacial. This imaging system uses UV fluorescence imaging to measure porphyrin count and analyze spots, texture, wrinkles, pores, UV spots, brown spots, and red spots on the face. Dr. Dima Ali will assess the results of this imaging test to determine if HydraFacial is the best option for your needs. 

Targeted Serums

At WellMedica, we tailor the serums applied during the HydraFacial to suit each patient’s unique needs. Whether you’re looking to reduce acne breakouts, plump thinning skin, smooth out wrinkles, or tackle discoloration, we’ll find the best combination of potent ingredients to maximize the results of your HydraFacial. 

Facial Massage

Our facial services include a gentle lymphatic drainage massage to boost blood flow to this skin. This enhances the results of the HydraFacial by increasing the flow of healing oxygen and nutrients to the skin. 


The results of your HydraFacial can vary depending on your provider’s expertise. Dr. Dima has over 25 years of experience and proven excellence in non-surgical aesthetic medicine. Widely praised for her professionalism, skill, and compassion, Dr. Dima can ensure that your HydraFacial successfully addresses your cosmetic concerns.
