HydraFacial MD Edmonton
HydraFacial MD has been offered at our Edmonton skin care clinic since 2015 and our patients love it! Patients will often try a single test treatment from one of our registered nurses to see how they respond and then they are hooked. In fact, our patients have made it so popular that Nakatsui Dermasurgery (formerly Groot DermaSurgery Centre) holds Black Diamond status (an honour given to the best HydraFacial practices in the world and the only one in Edmonton, Alberta to our knowledge!)
It has proven to be a very effective, non-invasive, multi-step therapy that combines the benefits of next-level hydradermabrasion, a chemical peel, automated painless extractions (no pinching!) and a special delivery of Antioxidants, Hyaluronic Acid, and Peptides. It does all of this in one quick treatment that delivers real results without downtime or irritation.
Traditional anti aging treatments include creams, traditional facials, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, photofacials, and laser resurfacing. HydraFacial MD® is a welcome hydrodermabrasion treatment option as it offers more improvement than traditional treatments such as facials, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion without the downtime of laser resurfacing.

The HydraFacial Perk Lip Treatment revitalizes your lips with key ingredients like peppermint oil and peony extract; leaving your lips refreshed, hydrated, lightly plumped. With the HydraFacial Perk take-home serum, your lips will thank you for the daily dose of hydration and antioxidants.

The HydraFacial Perk Eye treatment brightens and refreshes your outer eye area, improves skin hydration, and gently removes surface layer dead skin cells. With the HydraFacial Perk take-home serum, your eye area will look toned, firm, and hydrated.

Thank you so much for offering this skin treatment in Edmonton! I first had this done while vacationing in Palm Desert and fell in love with the results. So glad I can still get the best facial ever at your skin clinic.M.M.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are the benefits of a Hydrafacial?
Hydrafacials have been a great addition to our skin care centre. They can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and improve skin elasticity. They can make the skin appear brighter and smoother by rehydrating the skin, and you can feel the difference immediately. Hydrafacials also tighten the pores and remove congestion, and some patients find that their acne improves because of this. This treatment can also help remove blackheads. The first thing most patients notice after a treatment is that their skin feels so smooth and hydrated. The next more remarkable thing is that they get to see what has been extracted from their skin as this device stores what has been removed.
Which is Best for Skin Rejuvenation–Hydrafacial or Laser?
Both Hydrafacial and laser therapy are effective skin rejuvenation treatments. What draws many of our patients to Hydrafacial is that it has instantaneous results with no downtime in the vast majority of patients. On the other hand, laser therapy can have significantly more downtime.
Can it Help my Acne?
Many patients find that their acne improves with Hydrafacial. In fact, one of our first patients was one of our nurses who had acne, and found that her acne dramatically improved following treatment. On the other hand, it does not work for all patients.
Is a HydraFacial Painful?
Hydrafacials do not hurt. Most patients experience no pain whatsoever and feel very relaxed during the procedure. Our dermatologist Dr. Nakatsui always says that at the end of the treatment, he feels like he has just had a massage.
Are There Any HydraFacial Side Effects?
There are really very few side effects. Occasionally patients with extremely sensitive skin can get a little irritation from a treatment, There also can rarely be allergies to some of the components. At your skin care consultation, we ensure you do not have any allergies to any of the components.
How Often Should I Get a Treatment?
We usually recommend one treatment every 4-8 weeks to maintain the benefits.
What areas Can be Treated?
Any area of the body could theoretically be treated. The most common areas are the face, neck, and decolletage.
Is a HydraFacial Worth It?
We definitely think so based on the reviews we receive every day from our patients and from our own experiences. Try one out and see what you think! One of our registered nurses will treat you and guide you through the experience. We think you will love it and we would love to hear your review.
How Long Should a HydraFacial Take?
The basic process usually takes about 45 minutes but may take longer if the patients requests an add-on therapy.
What are the different types of HydraFacial treatments?
There are five main types of HydraFacials:
- Signature HydraFacial
- Clarifying HydraFacial, which consists of a Signature HydraFacial plus Blue Light Therapy
- Deluxe HydraFacial, which consists of a Signature HydraFacial plus either a Dermabuilder or Britenol Booster
- Platinum HydraFacial, which consists of a Signature HydraFacial plus CTGF (Connective Tissue Growth Factor)
What is the CTGF add-on?
CTGF stands for Connective Tissue Growth Factor (also known as ReGen Growth Factor) and is a product that is infused directly into the skin with Vortex technology to ensure it reaches the dermal layer. This product is designed to restore skin health by diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The key ingredients are naturally occurring proteins that regulate cellular growth and regeneration.
