At TCMA, we take full advantage of HydraFacial’s unique ability to provide noticeable, intentional improvement to many different parts of the facial skin. Since it can tackle everything from fine lines to blackheads and dehydration, it is one of the most recommended treatments for anyone looking for general improvements to their complexion. Hydrafacial is a skin health treatment, and we have the latest Syndeo device at TCMA.

Our staff is excited to tell you more about HydraFacial treatment and how we can provide you with industry-leading results and medical care.

Our Philosophy

The Centre for Medical Aesthetics operates on one paramount tenet: your aesthetic journey is as important as any other medical venture you embark on. Your concerns aren’t “just cosmetic.” Aesthetic care is still care, and we promise to treat them with equal gravitas.

Why Might Someone Consider HydraFacial?

HydraFacial goes beyond traditional facials by utilizing a patented technology to cleanse, extract, and hydrate the skin. It addresses a variety of skin concerns including:

  • Fine Lines
  • Uneven Skin Tone/Texture
  • Enlarged Pores
  • Oily and Congested Skin
  • Dryness and Dehydration
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Acne
  • Blackheads
  • Dull Skin
  • Sun Damage

If you’re experiencing any of these conditions, HydraFacial could be a treatment worth considering.

Is HydraFacial Right for Me?


  • Do you have preexisting conditions that might react poorly to treatment?
  • Do you have any rashes, sunburns, active rosacea, or other temporary concerns?
  • Are you experiencing textural or tonal skin concerns you would like to treat?
  • Do you have realistic expectations about what HydraFacial can achieve?
  • Have you looked into exactly the kinds of results HydraFacial can provide?

The most important part of figuring out whether you are a candidate for this procedure is to first take a look at your overall health. If you have any underlying skin conditions that react poorly to this type of suction-based treatment, we may need to consider other options.

Similarly, if you are exhibiting any rashes, sunburns, active rosacea, severe acne breakouts, or other similar types of skin concerns, it may be better to wait it out until you have had a chance to heal. Otherwise, you could be experiencing additional discomfort during your procedure. 

Of course, you should only go through with HydraFacial treatment if you have a clear understanding of exactly what the treatment can achieve. It is not a surgical treatment, and when compared to surgical alternatives, HydraFacial results will seem limited. 

But, if you have looked at plenty of before and after photos of people similar to you, and you are happy with what those patients have achieved, then it is likely that you will be a good fit for this treatment.

Understanding the HydraFacial Process

At our practice, our first and foremost goal is to make sure you feel comfortable and confident about the decision to have a treatment performed. We won’t encourage you to have anything done that you aren’t ready for or undergo any procedure that we don’t think will ultimately get you closer to your ideal results.

A Consultation with The Centre for Medical Aesthetics


  • Rest assured our goal is to guide you, not sell you on treatment.
  • Make the most of your consultation and take your time through the process.
  • We are your aesthetic partner even if you don’t sign up for treatment.

We want you to feel comfortable at TCMA, which is why we put such importance on making sure you know that our goal as your medical aesthetic partner isn’t to sell you on as many treatments as possible. Our goal isn’t even really to sell you on one treatment.

Our focus is guiding you through your aesthetic journey, and if we do not think HydraFacial is not a good fit for your goals, then we won’t recommend it. We would be happy to help you find an alternative, though — even if that alternative isn’t a treatment you need to sign up for. 

It’s important to be as informed as possible so that you can ultimately make the best decision about how you would like to proceed. We recommend keeping a list of all of your questions and concerns and bringing them with you during your consultation. We will be happy to go through all of them and get all the details ironed out so that you are thoroughly educated.

Remember, even if you don’t sign up for HydraFacial now, we are still here for you if you have any other questions or start to consider a different treatment down the line.

How to Prepare for Your HydraFacial

There is no extensive preparation process for HydraFacial. You can simply come with a clean and prepared face on the day of your treatment. We do, however, recommend avoiding excessive sun exposure, waxing, depilatory creams, or other harsh skin treatments in the days leading up to your treatment since they can make your procedure or recovery much more uncomfortable.

The HydraFacial Process


  • Step 1 exfoliates the surface layer of the skin.
  • Step 2 loosens deeper debris found in the pores.
  • Step 3 extracts blackheads, acne, and other pollutants.
  • Step 4 infuses customised serums to improve skin health.

HydraFacial treatment can be broken up into the four following steps:

Step 1: Exfoliation

This step entails a gentle exfoliation of the surface layer of the skin, which removes dead cells and other debris from the tissue. Many patients are able to see an improvement immediately after this step since general dullness and flakiness can have powerful impacts on skin appearance.

Step 2: Cleansing

In this step, a mix of cleansing substances is added to the device and pulled around the face. This begins loosening deeper debris and unclogging pores for a more thorough cleanse. Patients are always surprised to see how much underlying debris we are able to remove.

Step 3: Extraction

The next step uses suction to gently pull away the contents of blackheads and other acne throughout the face. Unlike manual extraction, the HydraFacial device uses moderate vortex suction which causes very mild, sometimes negligible discomfort.

Step 4: Infusion

After extraction is complete, we will add a mix of hydrating serums rich in antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid, a chemical found naturally in the body. This serum can be customised to your exact skin needs, making it a highly tailored treatment.

HydraFacial Results

The results of HydraFacial are two-fold: you will likely see some immediate improvement because of the thorough cleansing of the skin. This usually manifests in healthier tissue that is free from dull dead skin and other pollutants. 

Results will continue to develop after the treatment, though, as the infusion begins to take effect in the tissue and help combat some underlying causes of unwanted skin conditions. Your results will typically last between four and six weeks, but you can continue to have maintenance procedures performed to maintain optimal results.

Let’s Talk: Frequently Asked Questions

Let’s Talk About Dermabrasion

Dermabrasion is a cosmetic procedure that involves the controlled removal of the dead or damaged layers of the skin to smooth out its surface and improve its appearance. This process is typically used to treat skin concerns such as scars from acne, surgery, or trauma, as well as fine lines, wrinkles, and more. Dermabrasion can be performed on small areas of skin or on the entire face and can be used alone or in conjunction with other procedures.

What Risks Are Associated with HydraFacial?

HydraFacial is known for its safety and efficacy across all skin types, with minimal risks. The most common side effects are slight redness and tightness immediately post-treatment, which typically subsides within a few hours. In some cases, you may experience a breakout as the skin reacts to the sudden changes. These breakouts are typically very mild and subside within a few days.

Are There Any Post-Treatment Instructions to Follow?

You should do your best to avoid excessive sun or UV exposure by using an SPF 30 sunscreen (or higher). After your treatment, the skin will be particularly sensitive since a fresh layer was revealed, so you should also avoid harsh skincare products like retinol, acids, or deep exfoliating ingredients.
