For an added bonus, our practice provides lymphatic drainage (also known as lymphatic therapy) as an complementary procedure during your HydraFacial. Using the same technology, lymphatic therapy uses a suction tool and technique to gently remove black heads, bacteria, and dead skin from the surface of your face.
This treatment is not painful, does not produce significant side effects, and will further improve your skin tone by cleansing your pores. Ask your aesthetician about lymphatic drainage during your consultation to ensure you get to take advantage of this treatment.
"Maria has a heart of gold and her customer service is great. She loves every client. Try the hydrofacial.

Personalize Your Facial
The HydraFacial has proven safe and effective for men and women of all ages and skin types. Your specific procedure will be customized to your specific needs and skin type. Skin concerns that can be improved with HydraFacial include:

HydraFacials can be performed in our office in about 30 minutes. The procedure will begin with a thorough consultation to determine the best approach to the facial. Once your plan is complete, you can relax in one of our treatment rooms as your procedure begins.
HydraFacials include six main steps: cleansing, exfoliation, pore extraction, hydration, nourishment, and protection. These steps are customized to your skin's needs with the appropriate cleansers, level of exfoliation, moisturizers, serums, and other products. A HydraFacial can be further customized with another complementary facial treatment available at our Wayland, MA practice.
What to Expect with HydraFacial®
If needed, you will be able to reapply makeup following your HydraFacial to hide any redness before you return to your daily routine. You will likely see noticeable skin improvements shortly following your procedure, with full results in a few days.
We recommend getting these treatments in monthly intervals for maintenance of your newly improved skin tone. During your consultation, we can help you schedule future treatments and discuss creating a home skin care routine to keep your complexion healthy in between appointments.
