Summer should be all about making fun memories in the sun. But how careful are you with your skin? Exposure to intense summer UV rays and extra hot temperatures can take a significant toll, leaving your skin dry, dull, and damaged. Fortunately, HydraFacial MD is an ideal solution if you’re ready to restore your complexion and revive your glow.
Although this treatment is beneficial all year round, let’s dive into why every summer skincare routine should include a nourishing HydraFacial and learn what this procedure can accomplish for your skin.
What Happens to Your Skin During Summer?
Your skin is highly vulnerable to excess sunlight and humidity during the summer months. Intense sun depletes the skin’s moisture, making it dry and rough. Your sebaceous glands become more active, which can make your skin oiler and more acne-prone. Additionally, UV rays can affect the skin’s elasticity. And while a summer tan may look flattering, too much sun can ultimately lead to unsightly sunspots. These factors are why your skin likely needs a rejuvenating HydraFacial during summer.
What Happens During a Hydrafacial Treatment?
During your HydraFacial, we use a multi-step approach to nourish and restore damaged skin:
Cleansing: During this initial step, we use a special handheld device to gently cleanse and exfoliate the skin.
Exfoliating: Next, a special vacuum-like tip is fitted to the device to remove debris and impurities from deep within the pores.
Hydrating: Finally, we soothe the treated skin by applying an antioxidant-rich hydrating serum.
Your HydraFacial can be customized with add-ons for skin brightening, improved décolleté, and lymphatic drainage. We offer a 60 or 90-minute treatment that includes LED therapy. If you’re short on time, we also offer an express version of this treatment that takes up to 30 minutes.
Many clients pair their HydraFacial with other restorative treatments, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic or dermal fillers. Note that these procedures should be done in a specific order; therefore, we may stagger them for optimal results.
What Results Can I Expect From HydraFacial MD?
A single HydraFacial session can deliver noticeable results for patients of different skin tones and types with no downtime away from summer fun. HydraFacial patients may experience the following benefits, particularly with multiple treatments:
- Glowing, radiant skin
- A clearer, smoother complexion
- More even skin tone
- Smaller pores
- Improvement in signs of aging
Does HydraFacial MD Have Any Side Effects?
While most patients have no side effects, those with highly sensitive skin may experience mild redness, breakouts, or blotchiness. The typical HydraFacial patient leaves their appointment looking visibly more radiant and refreshed.

How To Prolong Your HydraFacial MD Results
We highly recommend a series of treatments throughout the summer to combat the effects of sun exposure and maintain the appearance of supple and vibrant-looking skin.
These tips can help you prolong the results of your HydraFacial during summer and all year round:
Take it easy. Treat your skin gently in between treatments. Avoid harsh products and vigorous rubbing—leave the exfoliating and extracting to our experts.
Protect your skin from the sun: It’s always a good habit to wear brimmed hats and sunglasses and to apply broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher.
Stay hydrated: Replenish your skin’s moisture by drinking at least 8 glasses of water daily (and even more during the summer months).
Maintain a healthy lifestyle: Your skin reflects your overall health. It’s vital to eat a balanced diet, exercise, practice stress relief, limit alcohol, and avoid smoking.
Use high-quality skin products. Be selective when choosing skincare products. Our specialists can guide you in selecting the top-shelf skincare products your skin deserves.
