Does your skin feel rough when you touch your face? Does it look dull and uneven when you look in the mirror? If you're frustrated because you have tried every expensive moisturizing cream and serum on the market to no avail, we have a solution: HydraFacial.
A HydraFacial treatment resolves a multitude of skin conditions, including fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, enlarged pores, and hyperpigmentation. Proven safe, HydraFacial technology targets dry and oily skin, making it the ideal balancing treatment for various skin types. Its power lies in its ability to increase skin susceptibility to anti-aging hydrating serums, nutrients, and antioxidants.
HydraFacial treatments reveal a radiant complexion for all skin types, resulting in softer, clearer, and healthier-looking skin. Whether your specific skin concerns include large pores, fine lines, wrinkles, an uneven skin tone, acne prone skin, or the pale, tired-looking tone that comes with skin aging, HydraFacial reduces their appearance and gives you a radiant complexion.
Other benefits of HydraFacial include:
HydraFacial utilizes a patented vortex technology system that involves four essential steps: cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, and hydration. During the treatment, we use a handheld HydraFacial device to deliver these steps to remove dead skin cells and reveal a radiant skin tone. HydraFacial involves:
HydraFacial technology allows for customization based on individual skin concerns and goals. It's a non-invasive and effective skincare treatment that offers visible skin refinement and superior results. HydraFacial works by combining advanced technology with a multi-step approach to cleanse, exfoliate, extract, and hydrate the skin, for a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.
Almost anyone desiring to transform dull or damaged skin into brighter, glowing skin with clear vitality is a good candidate for HydraFacial, including teenagers. However, if you have an active rash, skin infection, rash, or rosacea flare up, you are not a current candidate.
HydraFacial is proven safe for individuals of every skin type—even sensitive skin and extremely sensitive skin—and different skin concerns, including:
Our Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Fredric M. Barr, M.D., F.A.C.S. prioritizes patient safety. During your consultation with our patient counselor, we'll discuss your skin health, HydraFacial treatments, and skin resurfacing procedures to determine the best treatment for your facial concerns and goals.
Whether you need more than one HydraFacial treatment depends on the condition of your skin and your individual goals. Many patients experience noticeable improvements in their skin after just one HydraFacial treatment. However, we often recommend multiple treatments for optimal and long-lasting results. The number of sessions you need will depend on your specific skin concerns, skin condition, and desired outcome. Typically,we recommend a series of 3-6 treatments spaced several weeks apart.
HydraFacial procedures are cumulative, meaning that each session builds upon the previous one, resulting in enhanced results over time. With each session, the skin's health and appearance continue to improve as the exfoliation, extraction, and hydration steps target different layers of the skin.
HydraFacial is not a chemical peel. While both treatments improve the skin's appearance, they employ different techniques and have distinct benefits.
A chemical peel involves the application of a chemical solution to the skin, typically containing acids such as glycolic acid, salicylic acid, or lactic acid. The solution exfoliates the outermost layer of the skin, promoting cell turnover and revealing a fresher, renewed complexion. Chemical peels can vary in strength, ranging from superficial to deep, depending on the desired outcome and specific concerns.
On the other hand, HydraFacial is an innovative modality utilizing a patented technology that combines multiple steps to cleanse, exfoliate, extract, and hydrate the skin. It involves the use of a specialized handheld device that delivers each step of the treatment.
HydraFacial employs a gentle exfoliating solution to remove dead skin cells and improve skin texture, but the process is milder compared to a chemical peel. The extraction step uses a suction technique to remove impurities and congestion from the pores, providing a deep cleanse. Finally, the treatment concludes with the application of hydrating serums to nourish and moisturize the skin.
One of the advantages of HydraFacial over a chemical peel is that it provides immediate results without downtime or significant side effects. Patients can notice improvements in their skin's texture, tone, and overall appearance immediately after the treatment.
While HydraFacial and chemical peels can benefit the skin, they target different concerns and offer varying levels of exfoliation and rejuvenation. During your consultation, our patient counselor can assess your specific needs and goals to determine which treatment option is most suitable for you.
The cost of HydraFacial depends on each patient's skin conditions and goals. Whether you need one session or more to achieve facial rejuvenation is an individual decision, based on numerous factors. Although not covered by health insurance, at Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery, we accept CareCredit®, cash, checks, and credit cards, and offer other financing options.
Unlike microdermabrasion or chemical peels, HydraFacial provides a multi-step, non-invasive treatment that simultaneously cleanses, exfoliates, extracts, and hydrates the skin, resulting in immediate and noticeable improvements in skin texture, tone, and overall radiance. With HydraFacial, there is no downtime or significant discomfort, making it a convenient and gentle option for achieving a refreshed and rejuvenated complexion.
Combining different treatments can provide synergistic benefits and address multiple skin concerns simultaneously. However, the suitability of combining HydraFacial with other treatment options such as non ablative facial rejuvenation, microdermabrasion or a chemical peel depends on your specific concerns, skin type, skin condition, and individual tolerance. During your consultation, our patient counselor will guide you through making the best choice for you.
For more than three decades, Board-certified Dr. Fredric M. Barr, M.D., F.A.C.S. has been helping women and men at Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery achieve naturally beautiful results. Dr. Barr believes if you can tell a patient has had plastic surgery, it is not necessarily a good result. He combines his medical knowledge and experience with his passion for artistry to achieve a natural, refreshed look for his patients.

The answer depends on multiple factors, including the specific combination of procedures, your recovery rates, your age and health status, and your behaviors or habits. More invasive surgeries typically require recovery time ranging between 6 and 12 weeks to 6 months, and surgeries to the same area of your body will also generally require recovery time between procedures.
However, if you are in good health and the combination of procedures in question will be performed on different parts of your body and are not especially invasive, a combination of procedures could potentially be approved together on a case-by-case basis. It is imperative that the combination of procedures does not compromise your healing, and your attention to prescribed pre-operation and recovery habits also plays a significant role. Schedule a consultation for an assessment and guidance regarding the procedures you are considering.
While aging affects us all, there are steps we can take to put forth a more vibrant appearance. We seek to perform subtle adjustments to address imperfections and the wear of time while retaining your natural look. While you should notice an improvement, the glaring changes or distortions in appearance you are concerned about and may have seen from other surgeons’ work do not meet the standard of quality plastic and cosmetic surgery we perform in our office.

For patients with Breast Implant Illness (BII), which can include allergy, auto-immune, and thyroid hormone issues, this has been an emerging topic with significant press coverage in recent years. Although numerous medical professionals have demonstrated varying responses to these women’s concerns, we believe in addressing these women’s experiences and symptoms. In response to this phenomenon, we have also chosen not to perform new breast implant surgeries. We perform Total Capsulectomy on patients with breast implants, which involves the removal of both the saline or silicone implant and the capsule around it.
Removal of the implants and surrounding scar tissue has been shown to improve women’s health concerning these symptoms. While some women choose no further procedure following Breast Explant Surgery, some patients elect to have a Mastopexy procedure that involves reshaping the breast tissue for a pleasant cosmetic breast appearance. We welcome your specific questions regarding these procedures and their anticipated effects for your situation. See our Breast Implant Explantation (Total Capsulectomy) page for more detailed information, including before-and-after photo examples.
