Everyday our skin is subjected to various harsh factors that can cause damage. The sun, pollution, UV rays, and toxins are only some of the harmful elements that we face daily. These factors, combined with aging, can turn the skin dull and wrinkled. MAE Plastic Surgery offers the best solution to keep the skin healthy, young, and radiant. Hydrafacial MD is the latest rejuvenation technology with the ability to reverse skin damage, allowing you to have a renewed and more youthful, vibrant look.

What Is Hydrafacial?


Hydrafacial MD is the world’s leading, cutting-edge technology for non-invasive, multi-step skin rejuvenation. It combines advanced hydradermabrasion, chemical peels, automated pore extractions, and a powerful application of serums rich with antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid. Hydrafacial MD is suitable for different kinds of skin types and heals a wide range of issues instantly without any downtime or discomfort.

Hydrafacial Steps


The Hydrafacial treatment is a 6-step procedure for comprehensive skin rejuvenation. Hydrafacial MD is unique from other facial treatments because it uses a serum delivery system called Vortex-fusion. The multiple steps work to clear the skin from impurities, while saturating the skin with a healing serum. Hydrafacial MD consists of the following steps:

  1. Vortex Exfoliation: This step uses Active-4 serum to remove dead skin cells to expose the healthier skin layer.
  1. Vortex Peel: Next, a mixture of glycolic and salicylic acid called GlySal is utilized for instant peeling without the consequences of a post-peel.
  1. Vortex Extraction: Then, the pores are cleaned out using the exclusive Beta-HD, which uses a painless automated vortex suction.
  1. Vortex Boost: Then, a specific serum that address specific skin conditions are delivered to the skin.
  1. Vortex Fusion: This step uses a serum combination of Antioxidants, Hyaluronic Acid and Peptides called Antiox+ that nourishes and protects the skin.
  1. Extend and Protect: We then prescribe Daily Essentials to help you maintain your new, healthy skin.
