HydraFacial® or Dermalinfusion® - An Esthetician’s Expertise

Topics: Services, Skin Care


Your skin is one of your most important organs, and it’s up to you to take care of it. As the seasons change and we expose our skin to a variety of climates, activities and skin-care regimens, it’s important to keep one thing consistent: hydration. Keeping your skin well-hydrated is necessary to a youthful appearance, making your skin more plump and resilient, improving elasticity and combatting undesirable oils. While drinking water and moisturizing your face are essential day-to-day tasks, there are a variety of treatments offered to restore your skin’s health and hydration.

At the Belleza Skin Care Institute, we offer the HydraFacial® and Dermalinfusion® to provide you with the soft, fresh and youthful skin you deserve.


By removing dead skin cells and infusing your skin with hydrating and moisturizing serums, the HydraFacial® differentiates itself from other available skin-resurfacing procedures. HydraFacials® are done in-office, at our spa, and take about 20-30 minutes to complete. The HydraFacial® utilizes a non-invasive machine, equipped with a handheld wand with various tips to treat your skin in four simple steps.

Appropriate for all skin types, the HydraFacial® combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction and infusion to leave your skin clean, hydrated and glowing. In addition to cleansing and hydrating your skin, the HydraFacial® is beneficial for diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, unclogging pores and reducing acne outbreaks.


Dermalinfusion® is a non-invasive, skin-resurfacing treatment that combines exfoliation with serum infusion to address patient-specific skin conditions and needs. Similar to HydraFacials®, Dermalinfusions® are done in-office and take about 30 minutes to complete.

Delivering instant results, Dermalinfusion® uses a closed-looped vacuum system to infuse your skin with hydrating serums at the moment of exfoliation to improve the appearance, function and overall health of your skin. In addition to treating your skin at optimal skin depths, Dermalinfusion® treats skin conditions such as hyperpigmentation, acne, photo damage, dehydration and fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, you can request anti-aging, hydrating, brightening and clarifying serums to be performed on the face and body.

Which is best for you?

While both treatments offer the same quality and benefits of cleansing, exfoliation, extraction and infusion, choosing between the two will depend on your personal skin-care needs.

The HydraFacial® functions more as a one-size-fits-all treatment and is best suited for those in need of a gentle, moisturizing facial.

For those searching for a hydrating treatment that can be customized to treat more specific skin conditions or needs, the Dermalinfusion® may be the better option.

If you are having trouble deciding between the two treatments, our estheticians can help determine which service is right for your skin.
