Smoother, Brighter Skin with a HydraFacial!

Hydro Facial

A HydraFacial is a skin resurfacing procedure that treats acne scarring, signs of aging, hyperpigmentation, and other skin conditions in a three-step reinvigoration process. This non-invasive skin rejuvenation procedure is a great alternative to other, more intensive treatments such as chemical peels and microneedling. One of the greatest benefits of this treatment is that it’s suitable for all skin tones and types. If your skin gets oily, or you have bigger pores, or if you suffer from the exact opposite – dry skin – a HydraFacial can fix it!

Let Scottsdale Plastics introduce you to the skin detoxifying benefits of a HydraFacial! As it’s a simple procedure that’s less harsh on your skin, a HydraFacial is a “lunchtime” procedure with zero downtime. 

Robert G. Bonillas M.D. is a board-certified plastic surgeon with many years of knowledge and experience in skin and body treatments. He has risen to the top in his field throughout the years, and has perfected the art of non-surgical procedures such as the HydraFacial to help his patients realize their beauty goals. Banish your blemishes and soothe your sun-damaged skin with hydradermabrasion vortex technology; the secret of the HydraFacial’s success!

About HydraFacials

  • Blemishes
  • Clogged Pores
  • Enlarged Pores

  • Oily Skin
  • Uneven Skin Tone

Hydro Facial

A HydraFacial procedure is non ablative. This means it does not remove any tissue or cause damage to the skin. This gentler approach certainly has some advantages! Research has shown that hydradermabrasion technology effectively improves patient skin quality and increases antioxidant levels. (1) Antioxidants are substances that neutralize free radicals in the body, which can damage cells and cause illness and signs of aging. Additionally, as well as providing antioxidants, the final phase of a HydraFacial treatment saturates the skin with serum containing peptides. Peptides are antimicrobial in nature, help the body fight bacteria, and promote tissue healing.

The HydraFacial device has a series of one-of-a-kind attachments, each with a different role in the skin resurfacing process. It uses this patented technology to cleanse, extract, and hydrate tissues. (2) There are three unique steps in a HydraFacial, each of which employs the use of a different handpiece attachment:

Step One: Cleanse and Peel – A gentle exfoliation experience.

Step Two: Extract and Hydrate – Debris removal and moisturization.

Step Three: Fuse and Protect – Peptide and antioxidant saturation.

Candidates for a HydraFacial

HydraFacials are very versatile! They are suitable for darker skin tones, patients with aging skin, sensitive skin areas, and those with both oily and dry skin complexions. If you suffer from acne, and are taking prescription isotretinoin (Accutane), you must stop treatment at least six months before your HydraFacial. Additionally, patients should speak to Dr. Bonillas if they use Retin-A or skin resurfacing treatments such as home microdermabrasion kits.

Six Months Before Your HydraFacial

  •  Discontinue isotretinoin (Accutane) treatments for acne.

Two Weeks Before Your HydraFacial

  • Do not have Botox or other neuromodulator injections.
  • Stop getting chemical peels or chemical resurfacing treatments.

  • Limit sun exposure as much as possible and avoid tanning beds.

48 Hours Before Your HydraFacial

  • Stop using Retin-A and other prescribed medications that target acne.
  • Discontinue over-the-counter benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid acne topicals.
  • Avoid exfoliating skin treatments like glycolic acid or enzymes.

The HydraFacial Procedure

Hydra Facial

Dr. Bonillas will select a customized selection of topicals for your skin to target the beauty issues you are facing. Just like a microdermabrasion treatment, a HydraFacial exfoliates and resurfaces your skin. But, the HydraFacial is a much more comfortable way of doing so! Unlike microdermabrasion, there are no small resurfacing crystals. Instead, an aqueous solution cleanses and resurfaces the skin at supersonic speeds. By removing the debris and dead skin cells on the outer layers of the skin, the cells underneath are revealed, and the skin appears glowing and fresh

Although the vortex created by the specially shaped applicator can feel a little odd, it is not painful. After Dr. Bonillas has suctioned away debris he will focus on sebum reduction for oily skin types. In the final stage of your HydraFacial, he will apply a custom blended mixture of antioxidants and boosters to hydrate and replenish your skin. Because this procedure is so simple and painless, after around 40 minutes, you will be free to leave immediately after your HydraFacial!

HydraFacial Aftercare

As with any skin resurfacing treatment, it is important to follow the post-treatment instructions carefully and be gentle with your skin. Please avoid UV light exposure as much as possible, and do not use any additional abrasive cleansers and products on your skin in the days and weeks after your HydraFacial.

Results of a HydraFacial

Your non-invasive, resurfacing HydraFacial will leave your skin feeling smoother, cleaner, and revitalized!
