Performance. Safety. Comfort. Aesthetics. We’re talking HydraFacials, which are the luxury treatment of skincare.
According to our Director of Education and Development (and all-around skincare expert) Elizabeth Weiler, “The HydraFacial Elite utilizes the best technology and customizations to deliver a total skin transformation. Once you try the Hydrafacial Elite, you won’t want to try anything else!”
What’s the secret? Thanks to a patented Vortex-Fusion delivery system, HydraFacials go beyond the basic facial experience to deliver immediate results that leave you with glowing, dewy skin. There’s no downtime, no pain, and no reason not to try it!
If you’re ready to take the HydraFacial for a joy ride, here’s what you need to know before you go.
First thing’s first: What is a HydraFacial, exactly?
A HydraFacial is a “leveled-up facial treatment” that utilizes proprietary vacuum technology and serums to exfoliate, cleanse, extract, and hydrate the skin. The spiral design of HydroPeel® tips makes this treatment especially unique.
“As the tip passes over the skin, it will spiral specialty serums and solutions in the applicator and push them into the skin,” explained Elizabeth. “This process infuses beneficial ingredients directly into the skin instead of just applying them topically.”
Arguably one of the best parts about the HydraFacial is that you can see that it’s working—if you dare!
“There is a canister on the back of the machine that captures all the waste,” Elizabeth revealed. “We can remove the canister at the end of treatment to show clients all of the dirt and debris (only if they want!) that was removed from their skin. It’s a gross yet oh-so-gratifying way to see that the treatment is actually working.”
As satisfying as it can be to witness those results first-hand, HydraFacials do more than just cleanse your skin. Consistent treatments can have a variety of benefits for all skin types.

The Benefits of HydraFacials
Aside from significant hydration, HydraFacials can treat all kinds of skin concerns. From fine lines and wrinkles to tone and texture, this treatment will leave your skin feeling fresh and flawless. Here are a few other areas HydraFacials can address.
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Elasticity and firmness
- Skin tone and texture
- Enlarged and clogged pores
“HydraFacials are a great option for congested skin, dry skin, and those who are prone to random breakouts,” said Elizabeth. “They can also treat hyperpigmentation, create brighter skin, and deliver anti-aging benefit.”
Outside of treating these concerns, HydraFacials are great for a few other reasons, too. They are:
- Virtually painless
- Completely non-invasive
- Require zero downtime
- Safe for all skin types
There are not many medical aesthetic treatments that encompass all of these benefits—further proof that this truly is the Tesla of skincare treatments!
Types of HydraFacial Treatments at OVME
If you want to take advantage of the benefits of a HydraFacial, you’re in luck! There are three different types of HydraFacial treatments to choose from based on your needs and time availability. Here’s the scoop.
HydraFacial Elite: The crème de la crème of HydraFacials, this 60-minute treatment is your most luxurious and customizable option as it combines detoxifying lymphatic drainage therapy, bespoke treatment boosters for targeted skin concerns, and blue or red LED light therapy for a complete skin transformation.
“There are 13 booster options that your aesthetician can choose for you based on your skincare needs or concerns,” Elizabeth said. “Options like brightening, super hydration, and anti-aging boosters all contain a much higher concentration (up to 200%) than normal skincare serums, so the end result is truly remarkable.”
HydraFacial Signature: This 45-minute treatment includes customizable options and boosters to target skin concerns, partnered with relaxing and rejuvenating LED light therapy.
“This is one of our most popular HydraFacials,” Elizabeth shared. “It has the customization options clients love, and it leaves your skin totally radiant.”
HydraFacial Express: Short on time? This 30-minute treatment is perfect for busy, on-the-go clients who still want hydrated, radiant skin.
“The Express is a good first step if you’ve never tried a HydraFacial before,” said Elizabeth. “It’s also a good option if your skin just needs a quick reset.”
FAQs About Hydrafacials
Want to know more about HydraFacial treatments at OVME? Here’s a round-up of frequently asked questions we get in our studios.
How often can I get HydraFacials?
To keep up with that gorgeous glow, we recommend scheduling a Hydrafacial treatment once a month to further improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, oily skin, and brown spots over time.
As an OVME member, you can choose to upgrade your signature facial to a HydraFacial for a small fee. To learn more about our memberships, click here.
How soon will I see results?
HydraFacial results are instant! There is no downtime or recovery period following the treatment. One treatment is enough to see visible results and a more radiant skin tone, and the hydrated, smoothing effects can last up to several weeks.
Can I get a HydraFacial on other areas of my body?
HydraFacials can be used on the neck, chest, back, and under eyes for glowing skin just about everywhere!
Can I get a HydraFacial on other areas of my body?
Yes! While the technology has improved significantly over the years, HydraFacials have been around for a while and have proven to be safe for all skin types. If there are any concerns for those with irritated or highly sensitive skin or for those with allergies, we can do a modified treatment. If you are pregnant or nursing, we will not use acids unless there is doctor approval.
What should I not do after a HydraFacial treatment?
To maximize the benefits of a HydraFacial, get your workout in beforehand so you don’t sweat excessively or need to wash your face right after. Other than that, there really aren’t any restrictions. Try to leave your makeup off for the rest of the afternoon to allow your skin to fully absorb the treatment. If you like, we can apply a tinted SPF post-treatment.
Can I combine HydraFacials with other treatments?
Yes, absolutely! Because HydraFacials are completely non-invasive, they work great in combination with other treatments. In fact, independent studies conducted by the HydraFacial Company found that patients saw 2x firmer and smoother skin when paired with Non-Ablative Fractionated RF (OVME RF Microneedling), 50% smoother and firmer skin when paired with ablative laser procedures (OVME Laser Resurfacing), and a 30% reduction in brown spots when paired with PhotoFacials.
Can men get HydraFacials, too?
Of course! We have many male clients that come in regularly to receive HydraFacials. We recommend shaving as close to the appointment as you possibly can if you want the full area treated. You may want to avoid shaving the rest of that day prior to treatment or the following morning to make sure your skin is calm and the serums have been fully absorbed.BOOK YOUR HYDRAFACIAL
