HydraFacial MD Edmonton
HydraFacial MD has been offered at our 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 we hold Black Diamond status (an honor given to the top HydraFacial practices in the world and the only one in Edmonton to our knowledge!)
It has proven to be a very effective, non-invasive, multi-step treatment 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 treatments for the aging face include creams, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, photofacials, and laser resurfacing. HydraFacial MD® is a welcome treatment option as it offers more improvement than traditional treatments such as chemical peels and microdermabrasion without the downtime of laser resurfacing.

Thank you so much for offering this 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 this done. M.M.

What are the benefits of a Hydrafacial?
Hydrafacials 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. 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 devices stores what has been removed.
Which is Better for Skin Rejuvenation–Hydrafacial or Laser?
Both Hydrafacial and laser treatments 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 treatments can have significantly more downtime.
Can it Help my Acne?
Many patients find that their acne improves with Hydrafacial treatment. 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 had, 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. Dr. Nakatsui always says that at the end of the treatment, he feels like he has just had a massage.
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 feedback 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.
How Long Should a HydraFacial Take?
The basic treatment usually takes about 45 minutes but may take longer if the patients requests an add-on therapy.
What is the CTGF add-on?
CTGF stands for Connective Tissue 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.
