The HydraFacial Process



Before your HydraFacial in Algonquin, you'll meet with one of our providers for a skin consultation. We will discuss any concerns you have about your skin, as well as what you’d like to accomplish.



Your aesthetician will begin by cleansing the skin then move onto the exfoliating process to remove dead surface skin and open the pores.

Next, is a light and gentle chemical peel used to loosen debris deep in your pores. Unlike other chemical peels though, this one will not cause any side effects such as redness of the skin.



You’ll be able to see and feel results from the HydraFacial immediately. It is also mild enough that we can combine it with other treatments during the same visit.
