If you’re looking to learn more about what HydraFacial can do for you, you’ve come to the right place for everything you need to know about what to expect, results, cost, and more.
What Is HydraFacial?
HydraFacial is a refreshing, multi-faceted facial treatment that cleanses, exfoliates, and nourishes your skin all in one 30-minute, no-downtime session. It is similar to a DiamondGlow® facial, which we also offer at our clinic.

As board-certified family nurse practitioners, Dr. Gatica and Nikki work alongside our experienced staff, several of whom are bilingual, to offer personalized care in a supportive and luxurious environment.
What Does HydraFacial Treat?
HydraFacial treats many different skin conditions on both the face and body, including:
- Oily, acne-prone skin
- Uneven skin tone
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sun damage
- Age spots
- Enlarged or congested pores
While the treatment is amazing on its own, many people trust it to enhance or extend their results after other skin treatments, such as Forever Young™ BBL, HALO™ laser skin resurfacing, and RF microneedling.
How Does HydraFacial Work?
HydraFacial is as simple as 1-2-3:
- Cleanse and peel: Gentle exfoliation lifts away dead skin and debris to reveal a fresh and healthy layer of skin beneath.
- Extract and hydrate: Suction clears away pore blockages, and potent moisturizers reach deep into your skin with relaxing hydration.
- Fuse and protect: Specialized serums packed with peptides and antioxidants nourish your skin and prevent future damage.
One of our clients’ favorite parts of the HydraFacial process is the “gunk jar.” This jar collects all the buildup removed from your skin so you can see for yourself the difference the treatment made in your skin. It’s immensely satisfying!
What Is It Like To Get a HydraFacial?
The whole process is quick, relaxing, and safe for all skin types. You won’t need any numbing or prep as there is no discomfort involved.
What Is Recovery Like After a HydraFacial Treatment?
There is little to no recovery involved with a HydraFacial. You can head back to work, hit the gym, and put on makeup right away. It’s the perfect treatment to sneak in during a lunch break.
When Will I See Results After a HydraFacial?
You’ll see your healthy glow right away after your HydraFacial, and other benefits including:
- Smoother, brighter skin
- Clearer pores
- More even skin tone
Most people find they can maintain their results by coming back for monthly refresh treatments.
How Much Does HydraFacial Cost?
The price of a HydraFacial at our Des Moines-area med spa varies from person to person, depending on how you customize your facial and whether you include any other treatments in your appointment. During your in-depth skin consultation with one of our experienced providers, we will give you a personalized estimate so you know what to expect.
HydraFacial Scalp Keravive
HydraFacial Scalp Keravive Treatment, also known as Scalpacial, infuses the scalp with growth factors and skin proteins that hydrate and nourish to create results like:
- Cleaner, exfoliated, and hydrated scalp and hair follicles
- Increased scalp circulation
- Visibly improved appearance of healthier, thicker, and fuller-looking hair
Good Candidates for HydraFacial Scalp Keravive
This treatment is great for men and women experiencing scalp flaking, itchiness, or dryness. It also benefits people who want hair that looks fuller and healthier.
HydraFacial Scalp Keravive is designed to complement hair-growth treatments rather than replace them. Those treatments may include platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and topical minoxidil. As part of your Scalp Keravive treatment, you’ll receive a peptide-packed spray to use at home once every night as you massage your scalp. This Peptide Complex Spray allows you to continue using nourishing ingredients such as vitamin B5 and arginine. Arginine is an amino acid considered the building block of collagen and an antioxidant that protects and repairs damage from environmental stress. It works best in a package of 3.
