Deep Clean, Exfoliate, And Hydrate
Your Skin At Our Portland,
Your skin is regularly subjected to wear and tear due to a combination of aging, environmental stress, and irritants. Facials are a way of promoting healthier, cleaner, clearer, better hydrated, and softer skin. HydraFacial from Portland, OR's The Waldorf Center for Plastic Surgery is a patented, three-in-one skin treatment that is similar to a standard facial, but works more effectively. This non-invasive procedure, which is sometimes also called hydradermabrasion, can target several types of skin imperfections and conditions to create a silky surface and healthy glow.

What Is Hydrafacial?
A HydraFacial is a rejuvenating treatment that involves a combination of cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, and adding nourishing serums into the skin. HydraFacial gives you more dramatic results compared to a normal facial. It's similar to microdermabrasion, but also automatically includes serums that are applied to make the skin more radiant.
Some of the skin irregularities and conditions that can be treated with HydraFacial in one session include acne, dryness, rosacea, melasma, minor skin discolorations, fine lines and wrinkles, and uneven skin texture. Patients who have more severe skin imperfections or scarring may benefit more from a different option.
What Is The Hydrafacial Procedure Like?
The three-stage treatment begins with polishing the outer surface, which is called the stratum corneum, with a device that has an exfoliating tip. The skin is cleansed, and a peel that contains a mixture of salicylic and glycolic acid may also be applied to exfoliate and resurface the outer part of the skin to loosen blockages from pores.
A painless, vortex-powered wand uses vacuum suction to extract the dirt, impurities, exfoliated skin, blackheads, and oil that can build up deep in the pores.
Finally, customized blends of potent serums or "boosters" containing active ingredients are delivered into the skin. Serums are customized for a patient's specific skin concerns.
Your Hydrafacial Consultation
Before having a HydraFacial, as with any other type of skin treatment, it's best for patients to learn as much as they can about what to expect from the procedure. You can start by scheduling a consultation with the team at The Waldorf Center. During the consultation, we will discuss your medical history with you and tell you more about what happens during the procedure itself. During this time, you can ask any questions you might have about the HydraFacial process. You will also learn more about the other skin resurfacing procedures offered at our practice.
RECOVERY AND RESULTS FROM HYDRAFACIAL
A typical session is completed in less than an hour, and there is no downtime needed after. Patients can return to their usual activities right away. Patients may notice that their skin appears smoother, more even, and younger-looking, as well as has a renewed glow rights after a HydraFacial session.
Patients won't usually experience irritation, redness, or peeling, but it's best not to have exfoliating treatments for several days after a session. Some patients do experience some minor redness and tightness for a few hours after the treatment, both of which resolve quickly. It's best to avoid heavy exercise and makeup use for the first 24 hours. We will provide any necessary instructions for aftercare to maximize your results while minimizing side effects.
Patients will notice continual improvements over a series of treatments and can have additional treatments every five to seven months to maintain results.
Alternative Or Complementary Options To Hydrafacial
HydraFacial is one option for skin rejuvenation, and The Waldorf Center also provides other alternatives including chemical peels, microdermabrasion, DermaFrac® microneedling, and other specialty facials to enhance the appearance and health of the skin. During a peel, a solution is applied to remove the dead skin and dirt from the outer layer where the damage has occurred so that the newer, brighter skin can be revealed at the surface. Exfoliation treatments also encourage collagen production and skin cell turnover.
Dermal fillers are another option for temporarily increasing the skin's volume and reducing wrinkles. Sometimes patients might have dermal fillers or laser treatments as add-ons after a HydraFacial—but they are not part of the facial itself. The spa also provides a line of skin care products to boost the effects of facials and provide other nourishing and hydrating benefits.
