The HydraFacial – A Facial Fit for the Future of Skincare
The HydraFacial is one of the world’s most popular cosmetic treatments, and with good reason. This breakthrough in aesthetic science offers all the benefits of a traditional facial but is gentle enough to work on even the most sensitive skin and guarantee results.
From Beverly Hills to Birmingham, over 2 million Americans chose to try a HydraFacial last year alone. To put that into perspective, on average every 15 seconds, someone somewhere in the country is rejuvenating their skin with this innovative procedure.
The HydraFacial is applied using patented HydroPeel tips to deliver wholistic, non-abrasive results. Patients leave fully rejuvenated, relaxed, and glowing. This cutting-edge aesthetic technology works by simultaneously removing dead skin and impurities while lavishing the new skin in a bath of cleansing, hydrating, and moisturizing ingredients.
The HydraFacial is non-surgical, non-invasive and promises immediate results — you’ll be out the door and ready to go. For more information about the HydraFacial treatment or to schedule a consultation, feel free to call our Santa Barbara offices at 805-682-1731 today.
HydraFacial treatments utilize a series of HydroPeel tips, specially designed with peeling edges that exfoliate the skin and achieve the signature gentle, irritation-free results. Through this gentler approach than traditional dermabrasion (based on blasting the skin with fine-grit) HydraFacials deliver intense moisturization by pushing in high-quality, FDA approved active ingredients to protect, plump, and brighten your skin.
At the same time, the HydraFacial vacuums out your pores using “vortex technology.” At the end of your procedure, your aesthetician can actually show you all the removed impurities. The mini-vortex is created by patent-protected spiralized tips, which purify and clean skin while healing deeply.
The HydraFacial can do even more if you choose to customize your procedure with any of our top-of-line Boosts. These targeted boosters offer patients a chance to address highly specific skin concerns and meet their aesthetic goals. Say goodbye to brown spots or even unwanted lines and feel the power of our serums and antioxidants.
Your HydraFacial Treatment: Step-by-step
When you arrive at our Santa Barbara, CA, office, we will welcome you and bring you into our cosmetic spa to begin the treatment. There, we will utilize patented technology to cleanse deeply, extract impurities, and hydrate your skin to rejuvenate and ensure healthy tissue.
The HydraFacial’s powerful super-serums embrace nourishing ingredients to create a youthful glow. By targeting restoration, nourishment, and damage prevention, we guarantee you will leave looking and feeling radiant. The process promotes the skin’s natural glow. Skin health is incredibly important, and we believe it should be simple. The HydraFacial is a non-invasive means of replenishing soft tissue and improving your skin’s appearance.
If you choose to add-on any boosters, your HydraFacial specialist will target your unique skin priorities, like adding extra brightness, firmness or combatting unwanted fine lines. Dr. Sara Yegiyants offers medical grade boosters, Alastin TriHex-Pro, and ZO Brightalive. We also have the PERK lip treatment and the PERK eye treatment.
1. Cleanse and Exfoliate
First up, your HydraFacial specialist will begin the process by cleansing to remove dead skin cells and reveal your fresh, underlying healthy layer of skin. A small deplaning device will open your pores while gently removing the uppermost layer of debris and dead skin. This step is often likened to the feeling of an electric toothbrush gently massaging your skin.
2. The Acid Peel
Step two involves a gentle acid peel to loosen dirt and impurities from your pores. Many glycolic peels used in traditional facials can sting your skin momentarily until the aesthetician washes it off. The HydraFacial, however, uses fluid motion to cleanse and peel without any irritation. You may feel a slight tingle, but the peel will not irritate your pores.
Here’s where the vortex-suction comes in. The patented nozzle acts as a dirt removing vacuum to get rid of many of the causes of skin clogging and break-outs.
Unlike traditional extraction, the HydraFacial is entirely painless. It combines the benefits and key elements of much tougher treatments like microdermabrasion while offering patients a relaxing and gentle sensation— no painful squeezing, pressing or redness necessary.
4. Hydration and Protection
One of the HydraFacials most significant benefits is deep hydration, moisturization, and protection. This step involves bathing your skin in high-quality FDA serums and infusions. The combination of ingredients will improve your skin health in varied ways, even more so if you opt into boosters.
Antioxidants repair skin damage, while peptides offer the essential elements to improve your skin’s cell structure. Additionally, hyaluronic acid will reduce the appearance of wrinkles by thoroughly moisturizing the treatment area, efficiently smoothing and plumping your skin.

HydraFacial Customization Options for Every Skin Type and Issue.
While the basics of every HydraFacial treatment are the same, the customization options are nearly infinite. Your HydraFacial can look completely different from the next patients based on what specific concerns and particular issues or problem areas you want addressed.
Tailoring of each HydraFacial to your unique needs is achieved through the use of a variety of “boosting” medical-grade serums. These FDA approved serums have been formulated to address individual concerns.
Each of our serums is developed with only proven ingredients, and they all contain the highest-quality clinical-grade products available on the market today.
Let’s talk options:
This boost was developed to brighten skin tone and combat the appearance of any discolorations or blotchiness you may be experiencing.
It contains a targeted mix of skin brighteners that work to block the production of melanin. In conjunction with glycerin, the Brightalive® Boost restores hydration and helps your skin retain moisture. This is the go-to for an instant glow!
Growth Factor Boost
The Growth Factor Boost serum contains compounds known as, you guessed it, “growth factors.” By regulating cellular regeneration processes, growth factors play an essential role in improving and ensuring healthy skin structure and function. If you are hoping for the HydraFacial to offer an even more significant reduction of unwanted fine lines and wrinkles, we recommend this boosting serum.
Our Dermabuilder™ Boost is the usual pick for patients hoping to address fine lines while evening their skin texture and tone. A proprietary blend of peptides acts as active skin conditioning agents to smooth, hydrate, and firm your skin.
The Britenol™ Boost takes on sunspots and dark areas brought on by excessive sun exposure and damage. A potent mix of bearberry extract and Vitamin C work to clinically reduce the appearance of pigmented spots while enhancing overall brightness.
Which Boost is Right for Me?
After discussing your goals and concerns at your consultation, we will make sure you get the perfect blend of HydraFacial boosts and compounds. You will leave the office with revitalized, fresh, and glowing skin.
The HydraFacial offers a perfect option for patients looking for clinical results without any down-time, surgery, or discomfort—in under an hour. For more information about the HydraFacial, don’t hesitate to contact our Santa Barbara, CA, office today. We look forward to discussing the benefits and possibilities of this breakthrough procedure with you.
