The Hydrafacial® is a noninvasive treatment that delivers instant results with no discomfort or downtime. This revolutionary treatment moisturizes the skin, separating it from other skin resurfacing procedures. The Hydrafacial removes dead skin cells and extracts impurities while simultaneously bathing the skin with hydrating agents. This resurfacing treatment is soothing, non-irritating and great for all skin types. Its immediate effectiveness makes it perfect for an upcoming event or vacation to give your skin a healthy “glow.”
Why is HydraFacial good for my skin?
If you are a student of our Core 4 system you know that Replenish is a key step in skin health. Replenishing hydration is the foundation of healthy, radiant skin. If your skin is irritated, it can cause an over production of oils that can lead to acne or other skin issues you do not want. The HydraFacial procedure is a hydrating and non-irritating treatment.
Is there any downtime?
No. This procedure is great because you can put on makeup (if you desire) and return to your normal activities right after the treatment.
Am I a candidate for this treatment?
The HydraFacial treatment can be used by all skin types. The good news is that even people with very sensitive skin tolerate this treatment extremely well. Here at Village Dermatology we also use specific treatment serums to customize each treatment to your individual needs. We do not do “cookie cutter” procedures here and we tailor all our procedures, including Hydrafacial, to each patient and their goals. See below for some our most popular combinations for the Hydrafacial.

CoolSculpting is an effective, non-surgical treatment for removal of stubborn fat. Treatment areas include, but are not limited to: abdomen, love handles, muffin tops, thighs, and double chin. CoolSculpting uses controlled cooling to crystallize fat cells, which are eliminated by the body naturally. The procedure is pain-free (no needles) and requires no downtime. Many patients need only a single treatment. They begin to see results in as little as 3 weeks, and the most dramatic results after 1 to 3 months.

The Reveal Camera is the best way to see what’s really going on underneath the surface of your skin. This ultraviolet imaging software uncovers pigmentation, sun damage and vascular conditions before they manifest on the skin surface. Often used to determine an ideal strategy during consultations, it gives us the ability to target, improve and reverse skin issues before they arise.
Dermaplaning is a quick and painless exfoliation process using a special tool to gently remove the top layer of dead skin and eliminate fine, vellus (peach fuzz) hair from the face. It is particularly effective at promoting cell regeneration in dry, rough or mature skin. Dermaplaning allows for maximum product penetration, and may be used prior to topical treatment applications.
As we age, the production of collagen and elastin naturally diminish, leading to wrinkles, skin laxity and other signs of aging.
The SkinPen is a medical-grade, state-of-the-art precision tool to address acne scars and the symptoms of aging. SkinPen Micro Therapy is a highly effective treatment that helps to reduce the signs of aging and enhance your skin’s appearance by stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin.
How SkinPen Microneedling Procedures Work
Each of our bodies has innate processes that will react to injury by producing new cells and extracellular materials (like elastin and collagen) to heal the damage. That is how the SkinPen achieves its results; by taking advantage of that natural process through the implementation of a finely tuned microneedling device, the SkinPen. This device initiates your natural healing process by creating hundreds of temporary micro-sized openings, or micro-channels, in the skin. These “fractionated” micro-channels are created thanks to the brilliant design of the SkinPen’s disposable needle cartridge, which achieves its work without any thermal energy or chemicals applied to the skin.
Benefits of Fractionated Approach
- Fast and safe method for inducing the production of collagen
- Requires no thermal energy and is entirely non-ablative (no removal of skin)
- Promotes scar-free healing
- Safe for all skin-types
- No major downtime
What to Expect After SkinPen Procedures
You can expect to experience effects similar to mild sunburns after the procedure; typically some redness, tenderness and some swelling. Despite that, there is no significant downtime after a SkinPen procedure. Patients can return to normal activities and conceal most of the mild side-effects with make-up after just one day. In a few days, there will be zero evidence that the SkinPen procedure was performed at all!
Microneedling Results with SkinPen
Since everyone’s genetic makeup and needs are different, procedure requirements and SkinPen results will vary. The number of sessions required and the depth of treatment will depend on what goals/results you would like to achieve.
Custom Sessions Produce Desired Results
While multiple sessions are recommended to achieve optimal microneedling results, noticeable changes are typically seen just one week following treatment and gradually improve as the body’s healing process promotes the production of healthy, new cells and extracellular substances (e.g., collagen, elastin, hyaluronic acid).
Patients with uneven skin-tone and fine lines may see SkinPen results after just one procedure, while those looking to soften the appearance of acne scarring may require several procedures.
- Minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne/body scars
- Reduce pore size
- Produce radiant, even-toned skin
Hair removal waxing services for the brows, lip, and chin are offered as an add-on to other treatments. Brow tinting is also available.
