Since the treatment can be personalized for each person’s unique skin condition, the HydraFacial makes an excellent choice for almost everyone.
Consultations for the HydraFacial:
Dr. Francisco Canales and Dr. Heather Furnas offer patients a complimentary HydraFacial consultation at Napa Valley’s Plastic Surgery Associates. This appointment allows potential patients to receive a full skin evaluation. The HydraFacial will be explained in detail, and together with the surgeon or aesthetician, a personalized treatment plan will be created. During this appointment, the exact cost of the HydraFacial treatment will be determined, and all payment options will be discussed, as well.
The HydraFacial Process:
The HydraFacial procedure at Plastic Surgery Associates will take from 30 to 60 minutes to complete. The technique is refreshing and relaxing. It is often described as a cool, smooth brush moving across the face. As there is no pain or discomfort associated with the HydraFacial, there is no need for any anesthesia before the treatment. Each HydraFacial will consist of five steps, performed during one in-office session.
Step 1 – Vortex-Exfoliation:
The HydraFacial exfoliation process uses Activ-4 serum to remove dead cells. This important step gives cleans and refreshes the skin, allowing it to better absorb nutrients.
Step 2 – Vortex-Peel:
Glysal Serum, a patented mix of Glycolic and Salicylic Acid, is used to give the skin a powerful peel, without the irritating scaling process associated with other treatments.
Step 3 – Vortex-Extraction:
This painless step suctions dead skin cells and dirt away from tissues. Using Beta-HD serum, the skin becomes free of contaminants.
Step 4- Vortex-Boost:
At this stage in the HydraFacial, a personalized blend of nutrients and antioxidants can be added to strengthen and moisturize tissues.
Step 5 – Vortex-Fusion:
The last step of the HydraFacial includes the application of a unique Antiox Serum, designed as a powerful anti-aging tool to protect the skin with peptides and antioxidants.
Step 6 – At Home Care:
A specialized home skincare routine with HydraFacial’s Daily Essentials will further protect and extend the results of treatment.
Depending on the condition of each patient’s skin, a variety of enhancements can be used with the HydraFacial system to provide the best results. Additions to the HydraFacial treatment can include:
- Dermabuild – A combination of peptides to encourage collagen formation and improve cell strength for improved skin tone and better tissue elasticity.
- Glysal – For a more in-depth treatment, Glysal uses aggressive exfoliation to better slough dead tissues away for clean, smooth skin.
- HydraFacial Hands – Targets the uneven skin tone, dark spots, and fine lines of the hands.
- HydraFacial Lips – Specific treatment for exfoliating, plumping, and hydrating the lips.
- HydraFacial Neck – Works along side of the traditional HydraFacial treatment to reduce fine lines and crepe-paper tissues along the neck and decollate.
Recovering From the HydraFacial:
The HydraFacial can leave the face feeling soft and refreshed in less than an hour. The gentle facial requires no downtime, allowing patients to return to their usual routine immediately. Women may wear makeup after the treatment, and there are no restrictions on activities. Sun exposure, harsh cleansers, and Retin-A should be avoided for seven to ten days. Dr. Canales and Dr. Furnas will fully explain at home care during the HydraFacial consultation.
With only one HydraFacial session, most people will notice a dramatic improvement in the texture and tone of their skin. The face will look radiant and more relaxed. The smooth, hydrating benefits from a HydraFacial can last seven days or more. Depending on the patient’s needs, a series of four to six HydraFacial treatments, scheduled one to two weeks apart, may be recommended for improving deep wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne breakouts, and to correct oily skin. After the initial series of HydraFacial sessions, a monthly maintenance treatment can keep the face looking supple and glowing.

The HydraFacial is safe and gentle for most everyone. There is little chance for complications to occur after treatment. To get the most out of a HydraFacial experience, however, it is important that patients remember to seek treatment from an experienced provider.
