"Absolutely the most kind, caring and patient staff and Dr Lee is amazing. He is so good at what he does. I've had a few procedures done both in office and at surgery center.

"I was referred to Dr. Lee by my dermatologist after a surgery for skin cancer on my nose. Could not be happier with the outcome of the reconstructive surgery. I went in with a dime sized hole on the bridge of my nose. I came out 3 weeks later with virtually no scars and barely of trace of the surgery. Everything from the scheduling, consultation, surgery and efficiency of the office staff made the entire experience spectacular."- K.A. / Healthgrades / Mar 29, 2020

Personalize Your Facial
The HydraFacial system is designed to be safe and effective for men and women of all ages and skin types. The procedure will be customized to meet your specific needs. Skin concerns that may be addressed by a HydraFacial include:
- Brown or sun spots
- Chronic or infrequent outbreaks of acne
- Decreased skin elasticity or firmness
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Large or congested pores
- Oily skin
- Rough skin texture
- Uneven or dull skin tone
HydraFacials can be performed in our office in about 30 minutes. The procedure will begin with a thorough consultation to determine the best approach to the facial. In addition, we'll determine what special serums or other facial products can be added to the process, depending on your skin needs. Once your plan is complete, you can relax in one of our treatment rooms as your procedure begins. HydraFacials include six main steps: cleansing, exfoliation, pore extraction, hydration, adding nourishment, and protection. These steps are customized to your skin's needs with the appropriate cleansers, level of exfoliation, moisturizers, serums, and other products. A HydraFacial can be further customized with boosters, stronger glycolic peels and Perk treatments for Eyes and Lips.
What to Expect with HydraFacial®
If needed, you will be able to reapply makeup following your HydraFacial to mask any redness before you return to your daily routine. You will likely see noticeable skin improvements shortly following your procedure with full results in a few days. For maintenance of your newly improved skin tone, we recommend these treatments in monthly intervals. During your consultation, we can help you schedule future treatments and discuss creating a home skin care routine to keep your complexion healthy in between treatments.
HydraFacial Ideal Candidates
What are the results like?
HydraFacials take your everyday facial to the next level. You can expect results that will leave your skin feeling softer, smoother, and brighter. The HydraFacial takes the process of a facial one step further by cleaning out your pores, which offers a deeper level of cleansing. During your skin assessment, we will be able to depict what additional elements can be added into the facial to help improve many different types of skin irregularities.
Can I combine this with other treatments?
It is common for patients to combine their HydraFacial treatment with another skin rejuvenation treatment, such as BOTOX. Many of our patients like to schedule their appointments so that they can receive several services during a single treatment session. Common treatments to combine with a HydraFacial include injectable fillers, BOTOX, and in some cases, a light peel. Combining these skin rejuvenation treatments can provide optimal results.
How often should I have one?
During your consultation, we will discuss how often you should get a HydraFacial to maintain the results you desire. HydraFacials, on average, can be performed as often as you feel your skin needs the improvement. If you feel like your skin is prone to breakouts, rough texture, tone, or if you know you will be traveling or have an important event, your HydraFacial can be scheduled to help keep your skin bright and healthy before it looks dull. Many of our patients schedule their Hydrafacials every month to keep their skin gorgeous & glowing.
Is it better than a chemical or laser peel?
All of these treatments are highly effective yet serve different purposes. Laser treatments, chemical peels, and medical-grade facials treat a variety of skin irregularities. We recommend receiving these treatments at certain times of the year to attain the best results. The HydraFacial, however, can be performed more often and become a more regular part of your routine. Some treatments, such as a chemical peel, may require more downtime and should only be done once or twice a year.
