HydraFacial Aftercare: Know the Best Tips and Tricks

The HydraFacial is a non-invasive skin care procedure that combines the benefits of deep cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, and hydration in one treatment. HydraFacial treatment is a great way to cleanse and rejuvenate your skin, but it’s important to follow up with aftercare. This can help ensure that you get all of the benefits of the treatment while reducing any potential side effects. Read on to learn how to take proper HydraFacial aftercare!

Don't Pick at Your Skin

After your HydraFacial treatment, it’s important to avoid picking at your skin. Picking at the skin can lead to infection and irritation. The skin will be very sensitive after the treatment. You should avoid touching or rubbing your face as much as possible. If you must touch your skin, wash your hands first and use clean hands.

Use a Gentle Cleanser

Use a gentle cleanser that is free of harsh chemicals and does not contain alcohol or fragrance. Choose one that’s appropriate for your skin type and will help your face feel soft and moisturized after the treatment. You should also avoid scrubs and exfoliating products. Most of them contain microbeads that may become trapped in the pores. These particles can cause irritation that leads to redness or even injury if rubbed too roughly on sensitive areas.

Don't Apply Makeup On the Day of Your Treatment

Do not apply makeup on the day of your treatment. Makeup can clog pores and trap dirt in them which can lead to more issues in the future if left untreated. For those who have sensitive skin or are prone to acne breakouts, we recommend waiting 48 hours before applying makeup again (or even longer if you feel that it’s needed).

Avoid Laser Treatments and Waxing

It is ideal to avoid laser and waxing treatments when you have had a HydraFacial. Laser and waxing can irritate the skin, which may prolong recovery time. If necessary, wait at least two weeks before having any other cosmetic procedures done on your face so that your skin has a chance to heal and regenerate itself after having undergone this facial treatment.

Use Sunscreen

We recommend avoiding sun exposure for at least 48 hours after receiving HydraFacial treatment as well as using SPF 30+ sunscreen daily so that you can protect yourself against harmful UV rays! It’s best to apply sunscreen at least 15 minutes before going outside and then reapply every 2 hours. You should always wear sunscreen anyway—but it’s especially important after a facial procedure.

Avoid Hot Environments and Heat

Avoid going to the beach, sauna, or gym for 48 hours after your treatment. Sweating can irritate sensitive skin. If possible, try to schedule these activities before your HydraFacial appointment.


HydraFacial treatment is fast and effective, suitable for all skin types. The procedure removes dead skin cells and impurities while simultaneously delivering moisturizing serums into the skin. It is used to treat a variety of skin conditions including acne, dark spots, wrinkles, skin texture, breakouts, large pores, and thinning skin. But after getting a HydraFacial, you must know how to treat your skin afterward. So, for the best results, we encourage you to follow these tips!

Why PRP is the Best Choice for Hair Restoration

Whether man or woman, everyone can be affected by thinning hair. If you’ve noticed that your hairbrush has more hair in it than usual, or that running your fingers through your hair feels different than it used to, thinning hair might be the culprit. Fortunately, hair restoration advancements have brought about various ways to give back the confidence that may be receding along with your hairline. But, the field of hair restoration has been revolutionized over the last few years by the development of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) as a non-surgical treatment option.

Platelet-rich Plasma For Hair Restoration

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a treatment that has been used in several ways, but recent research shows that this therapy is a promising option for hair restoration, with the ability to stimulate inactive hair follicles into growing again. This means that it only works where there is existing hair – if there is no hair follicle, PRP cannot encourage growth.
The main advantages of PRP are that it is a minimally invasive procedure that is virtually painless and requires no downtime for recovery. Additionally, because PRP treatments use the patient’s own blood, there are no risks of side effects or rejection.

How PRP Works?

When you choose PRP to address thinning hair and come in for your treatment, Dr. Sadick will extract a small amount of your blood. The blood is then processed through a centrifuge, separating the platelets from the other cells in your blood sample. The PRP that is obtained is then carefully injected into the area on your scalp designated for treatment. Platelets contain stimulating growth factors that can boost hair growth and strengthen existing healthy follicles. It’s a short, virtually painless procedure done right in our office in multiple sessions, and offers very few side effects.

PRP Aftercare

Post-procedure, there are no restrictions – you can return to normal activities and even shower and wash your hair. You may notice a mild sensation of heat in the treatment area, similar to a sunburn, but this is temporary and resolves quickly. For optimal results, you may need more than one treatment session, which is something that you and Dr. Sadick will discuss when formulating your individualized treatment plan.

What To Expect From Your PRP Treatment?

Results aren’t immediately visible, but you will start to see a gradual change in your hair as the growth factors do their job. Within two to six months, your hair will begin to look thicker and you’ll be able to see noticeable, positive results.

How Many PRP Sessions Do I Need for Hair Regrowth?

The number of PRP sessions you need to see results depends on the severity of your hair loss. If you have a small bald spot, then one or two sessions are likely sufficient. However, if you have significant hair loss, it will take several sessions to get back to where you want to be. In general, clients with severe hair loss will need three or four sessions spaced about one month apart in order to achieve optimal results. We recommend “touch-ups” treatments every three to six months for optimal results.


If thinning hair is causing you to struggle with confidence or self-esteem, and you’re ready to try a non-invasive method for hair restoration, PRP therapy may be the solution. The procedure is simple, safe, effective and painless.
