Our Santa Monica plastic surgery and cosmetic dermatology center is now pleased to offer the Hydrafacial treatment to improve skin quality, maintain healthy skin, stimulate collagen production, and reduce complexion problems. Hydrafacial is ideal for teenagers with acne and adults who want a more collagen-rich complexion free of blemishes and impurities.

What is a Hydrafacial? The hydrafacial has been at the the forefront of skincare for over two decades and employs a hydradermabrasion technique to correct and maintain healthy skin. The treatment involves Vortex extraction which deep cleanses clogged pores using vacuum suction and skin rejuvenating enzymes. As the pores are deep cleansed, the Hydrafacial machine infuses skin-stimulating enzymes, alpha and beta-hydroxy acids, and skin nourishing topicals to improve complexion and stimulate healthy skin. All of this adds to your skin’s vibrancy, resiliency, softness, texture, and complexion. 

Benefits of Hydrafacial: The Hydrafacial treatment should be performed with a trained skin expert. At Kare Plastic Surgery and Cosmetic Dermatology, our experts include trained clinical nurses, aestheticians, and doctors who understand that your skin regimen should be both corrective and maintenance based. Our goal is to amplify your skin health by improving complexion, tone, texture, and resiliency. Hydrafacial is gentle, yet effective in reducing oily inflammation and is excellent for the treatment of teenage and adult acne. 

Who is a candidate for Hydrafacial in Santa Monica? A hydrafacial treatment takes about 30 minutes to one hour to perform and can be used on the face and body. We see many patients of all age groups, mainly those that have acne breakouts and adults who have uneven skin tone, blemishes, age spots, and fine wrinkles. Consecutive treatments can help with hyperpigmentation, acne, scarring, and fine lines.
What should I expect during my Hydrafacial? Unlike spa facials that vary by practitioner, the beauty of Hydrafacial is that is protocol-driven so that results are consistent and predictable. Your skin specialist will follow specific steps to deep clean your skin, exfoliate and extract surface impurities, and infuse enzymes and skin-stimulating acids to amplify your skin’s integrity. The treatment will include the infusion of enzymes to stimulate skin repair and collagen production. 

What are the risks associated with Hydrafacial? We will discuss your specific treatment with you during your treatment session. Hydrafacial is very safe and follows established protocols for skin rejuvenation. Most patients will undergo a solid extraction and exfoliation treatment that may leave the skin red for several hours. 

Can I wear makeup after a Hydrafacial? If you are on-the-go and have an event after your treatment, we would encourage you to apply sunscreen if you are in the sun and makeup if necessary. We can combine Hydrafacial with other treatments including laser hair removal, Clear and Brilliant, and laser RF skin tightening. 

How soon are results seen after Hydrafacial? Most of our patients see an immediate improvement is skin tone, color, and complexion. For those with acne, an initial deep exfoliation may make the skin more sensitized initially, followed by an improvement in comedone density and inflammation. 

How often are Hydrafacials scheduled? A Hydrafacial treatment is addictive in the sense that you will relish in the improvements in skin quality and texture. Most patients will schedule a series of Hydrafacial treatments to correct the skin and maintain a healthy glow. 

What other treatments are offered at Kare Plastic Surgery in Santa Monica? We have a long list of therapeutic cosmetic treatments including Botox, dermal fillers, laser skin tightening, and RF skin tightening procedures. 


Chemical peels are combined with hydrafacial treatments to further amplify the health of your skin. We offer many different types of chemical peels to help with acne, large pores, tired dull skin, fine wrinkles, and textural changes in the skin. If you have pigmentation and age spots, our TCA peels are an excellent option to reduce epidermal and dermal pigmentation. 

Dr. Karamanoukian lectures on chemical peels and hyperpigmentation, especially related to melasma and age changes in skin complexion. If you are interested in learning about chemical peels or laser facials in Santa Monica, schedule a consultation today.
