Woman receiving HydraFacial treatment


If facials tend to irritate and dry out your skin, they may not be designed with you in mind.

HydraFacial uses different skin-boosting ingredients to target your unique concerns and transform even the most sensitive skin.

HydraFacial at Murphy Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa in Reno, NV, helps patients target cosmetic concerns without damaging healthy skin.

What Is a HydraFacial Treatment?

HydraFacial is an innovative, non-invasive skin care treatment that uses vacuum suction and powerful skin-transforming ingredients to improve your complexion. Our vacuum wand removes skin-clogging bacteria and dead skin and delivers serums to the treatment areas to target your unique concerns.

How Is a HydraFacial Treatment Different Than Other Skin Care Solutions?

Powered by Technology

Facials that involve the extraction of blackheads and whiteheads aren't a new concept. However, these extractions are performed by an esthetician's gloved hands. HydraFacial uses a wand mechanism with powerful, but gentle vacuum suction to rid your skin of bacteria and environmental pollutants. Humans can do a lot, but when it comes to clearing your complexion, the HydraFacial wand can do more.  

Personalized for You

The magic of HydraFacial is in our customizable booster serums. Unlike a generic facial that follows the steps of cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing blindly without considering your unique needs, HydraFacial uses different serums to personalize your treatment. Whether you want to shrink your pores, clear oil and congestion, or minimize fine lines, we have a serum designed for you.

Designed for All Skin

HydraFacial is ideal for all skin types, even sensitive skin, because of the deeply hydrating nature of the facial and gentle suction that doesn't scrape at the skin. Some facials that use hands alone can leave your skin red, irritated, and rubbed raw. Irritation from facials can turn away patients with sensitive skin types, who can greatly benefit from facials to balance their delicate complexion.

HydraFacial Treats These Skin Concerns

HydraFacial has partnered with popular brands like Murad® to create serums designed to treat various skin concerns. Your esthetician will select the best serums to treat your concerns and apply them following your HydraFacial wand treatment. These boosters are designed to target various skin concerns, including:

  • Pore Size
  • Pigmentation
  • Dark Spots
  • Acne
  • Redness
  • Loss of Hydration
  • Loss of Elasticity
  • Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Treat Skin  With a Three-Step Process

The power of HydraFacial comes from its three-step process to better skin.
The power of HydraFacial comes from its three-step process to better skin.

Cleanse and Exfoliate

Every HydraFacial treatment starts with exfoliation to remove environmental pollutants, dead skin, bacteria, and dirt. We use a peel to gently remove skin cells and reveal the new skin underneath.

Extract Below the Surface

Purification doesn't stop at exfoliation. Our HydraFacial wand is used next to extract impurities from the deeper layers of skin. This gentle suction also opens your pores and prepares the treatment area for the topical skin boosters that are applied next.

Hydrate and Treat

Moisturizing ingredients and personalized serums are used to target concerns like redness, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone. These serums can penetrate your skin deeper and work more effectively, thanks to the prior exfoliating and extracting steps.

Frequency Matters

The effects of HydraFacial are clear after just one treatment. You may notice a smoother, more radiant skin tone shortly after your first session, and these results can last a week or longer. However, our estheticians recommend consecutive treatments to maintain and improve these radiant results. Since your skin regenerates about every 27 days, one HydraFacial treatment a month is ideal. 

Customize Your Treatment With Our Skin Boosters

Our Reno team has access to various serums designed to target many areas of concern.
