A HydraFacial is an extremely popular medical-grade facial that provides four treatments in one session and takes as little as 20 minutes. The HydraFacial’s four treatments are cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, and deep hydration using serums customized to enhance your skin quality.


What are the benefits of a HydraFacial?

For such a quick treatment, a HydraFacial packs a serious punch. The benefits of a HydraFacial range from clearer, brighter skin to a more hydrated, plump, and youthful appearance. Since a HydraFacial delivers cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, and hydration all in one treatment, the benefits include:

  • Deeply cleansed skin
  • Pores appear smaller
  • A brighter, more even complexion
  • Reduction in acne
  • Smoothed fine lines and wrinkles
  • Boosted collagen production
  • Zero irritation and redness, an excellent choice for sensitive skin
  • A natural, fresh glow

How does a HydraFacial work?

A HydraFacial uses hydradermabrasion to exfoliate skin but without the use of particles that can cause redness, irritation, and sensitivity. Dr. Merriman’s highly trained skincare specialists will administer the four phases of your HydraFacial as follows:

HydraFacial cleansing

During this phase, our skincare specialist will gently cleanse your skin of any dirt or excess oil with the specialized tip that sweeps away debris and dead skin cells. This phase of treatment is gentle and effective.

HydraFacial exfoliation

During the exfoliation phase, our skincare specialist will use a blend of glycolic and salicylic acids to gently break up stubborn dirt, debris, and oil that might be clogging your pores without harming or irritating your skin.

HydraFacial extraction

During the extraction phase of your HydraFacial, your skincare specialist will use a “vortex-fusion” vacuum-like device to suction out any dirt and debris clogging your pores instead of traditional extraction methods that can lead to red, irritated skin.

HydraFacial hydration

During the final phase of your HydraFacial treatment, our specialist will continue to use the vortex-fusion tool to infuse your freshly cleansed, exfoliated, and extracted skin with a customized serum.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Dear Patients,

We are doing our part to limit the spread of COVID-19. We are still here and working but not currently offering treatments. We are available to answer any questions you have. Our number one priority is safety of our patients, staff and our community.

We are seeing our patients who have recently had surgery for suture removal and to make sure your recovery is safe. We will keep the reception area empty and you will go straight back to an exam room. We will wear masks for your protection. Please only bring one person with you and if possible, it would be best if they can stay in your car during your visit.

We are offering Tele-Health visits for Surgical and Non-surgical consultations. It will be done the same way as an in person consultation would be done, except we will use video to communicate with you. This is done using our Electronic Medical Record and ensures your privacy. Having that consultation process done will allow you to schedule surgery and treatments so they can be done as soon as we are able to provide them again. I believe that after this ordeal, we will all be ready to do something nice for ourselves!

We are providing people with the chance to purchase products. We can bring them to your car. You can also purchase gift cards and we are developing several packages we want to offer. We are also shipping products during this time.

We understand all this uncertainty is frustrating and we apologize for the inconvenience. This situation changes day to day and we will keep you updated as we know more.

So what are we doing since we are not filling our schedule doing surgery, lasers, fillers, Botox, Dysport etc?

We are doing staff training. We will continue to brainstorm and think of ways we can provide even more exceptional patient experience.

We will be making videos and continuing to post on social media. Some of these will be educational and some will be to entertain! How entertaining will probably depend on how stir-crazy we get!

Be safe and be smart. Do your part to slow this virus down. And please, support your local businesses as much as possible.
