What is hydradermabrasion and why does it matter?
“Hydradermabrasion” is a big word (try saying it five times fast!) that simply means that a HydraFacial opts for a gentler approach to dermabrasion and exfoliation.
Rather than taking the traditional route and blasting the skin with grit, we instead use a method that relies on water pressure and other serums to moisturize, brighten, plump, and protect your skin—all while giving you the same, or better, results than older, harsher methods.
The HydraFacial machine’s unique handpiece contains spiralized tips that boast “vortex-fusion technology” to both remove all the harmful dirt, debris, and oil from your pores while leaving behind, and reinforcing, the good oils and bacteria that keep your skin gorgeous.
A HydraFacial in Mokena may be right for you if…
There is no skin type or tone that a HydraFacial cannot benefit. It is one of the most universally skin-friendly treatments that exists. At Images, we see men and women of all ages for HydraFacials to help them achieve healthy, fresh, and clean skin.
HydraFacial is a great option for you if you want to:
Remove all the gunk from your pores and reduce pore size
Improve your skin’s elasticity and firmness
Address fine lines and wrinkles
Clear up acne or pigmentation and even your skin’s tone & texture
Get a shine so bright you’ll have to wear shades 😎
One last thing: if you are currently experiencing an active rash, sunburn, or rosacea, or if you are pregnant, consider waiting to treat yourself to a HydraFacial until your condition is cleared up.
What can I expect during my HydraFacial in Mokena?
When you come to see the experienced Images babes for your HydraFacial, get ready for 30 minutes of total pampered bliss!
First, we will ask you to remove your makeup (if you wear any to your appointment). We will also provide you with a terry headband or a towel to protect your hair and you will lie comfortably on your back throughout the procedure.
Step 1: Cleansing & Physical Exfoliation
Your HydraFacial specialist will first use the machine’s deplaning tool over your entire face and neck. This pressurized water treatment is designed to open up your pores and sweep away leftover makeup and other debris.
This step also provides gentle physical exfoliation, which removes dead skin cells clinging to the skin and encourages new cell turnover.
Step 2: Chemical Exfoliation
Next, we apply a gentle glycolic & salicylic acid peel that may give you a light tingle as it works. Chemical exfoliation is an extremely important part of regular exfoliation and helps provide the base for healthy skin.
The glycolic acid dissolves any remaining dead skin cells and debris on the skin’s surface, while the salicylic acid penetrates deeper into pores and can help clear any pimples or blackheads you may be experiencing.

Step 3: Extractions
Using HydraFacial’s vortex-extraction nozzle (which is essentially a mini vacuum), we can literally suck all of the remaining oil and debris out of your pores. This can further address stubborn, lingering acne and blackheads.
Pro tip: There is a cup at the base of the machine where you can see everything we extracted from your pores. Dr. Pimple Popper fans, we’re betting this is the step you’ll most enjoy. Trust us, there’s always more than you think in there!
Step 4: Serum Infusion
Using the vortex-infusion HydraFacial attachment, we infuse an antioxidant-and-collagen-rich serum into your now deeply clean skin to promote elasticity and long-lasting hydration.
Those with special skin concerns or who want to get even more out of their HydraFacial in Mokena can opt for one of four custom “Boosts,” designed to target and treat certain skin concerns (more on each of these below).
And then we’re all done! Go look in the mirror and check out your gleaming skin.
Is there any downtime or side effects to expect after a HydraFacial?
One of our favorite parts about the HydraFacial is that there are no side effects or downtime to be expected at all! Those with more sensitive skin may be slightly pink for an hour or two following the treatment, but otherwise you are free to put makeup on and continue your day as normal.
The HydraFacial is designed to be more powerful than a facial, yet still gentler than a laser or broad band light (BBL) treatment, meaning you can get out and show the world your fresh complexion as soon as you leave the Images office!
When will I see results from my HydraFacial? Will they last?
While most of our patients notice a brighter, more even skin tone immediately after their first HydraFacial in Mokena, it may take more than one HydraFacial to get the results you want.
Once achieving your desired results, your skin will look especially hydrated and smooth for a week or two after treatment.
Consider amping up the effects of your HydraFacial in Mokena with a customized Boost!
The beauty of the HydraFacial is how infinitely customizable it is. No two clients一or their HydraFacial treatments一are the same.
The Images babes will evaluate your unique skin type and can make recommendations for customizable “Boosts” you can add onto your HydraFacial in Mokena to specially target and treat your skin concerns.
Here’s some more information on each of these Boosts:
If you are bothered by an uneven, dull, or congested skin tone, consider adding the Brightalive Boost to your HydraFacial.
This super serum contains HydraFacial’s “Skin Brightening Complex,” a “unique blend of skin brighteners (peptides, acids, etc.) to block the production of pigmentation” along with glycerin to restore moisture.
CTGF™ Growth Factor Boost
Our older guys and gals really enjoy adding a Growth Factor Boost to their HydraFacial. This serum is designed to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, restoring youthful skin health.
The key ingredients are—you guessed it—growth factors. These naturally occurring proteins regulate cell growth and play a key part in keeping skin healthy and firm.
This boost packs a triple punch of amazing benefits. Designed to address fine lines and wrinkles, skin tone evenness, and texture, consider adding this boost to give new life to tired, dull skin.
With key skin-conditioning peptides, the Dermabuilder Boost will leave your skin deeply hydrated, soothed, and reinforced.
Designed for those who have not been using adequate UV protection, or for those with pesky dark spots, Britenol is a clinically-tested-and-proven HydraFacial Boost that gives skin extra glow potential.
With Alpha-Arbutin and Vitamin C, add the Britenol Boost to your HydraFacial if you want to be left with diminished dark spots and an out-of-this-world glow.
Another amazing way we can customize your HydraFacial in Mokena? Adjusting the machine’s suction power to ensure we protect your more delicate areas (e.g. around your eyes) while also removing all the debris in the tougher areas.
How often should I schedule a HydraFacial in Mokena?
After achieving the desired results from your HydraFacial treatments, we recommend scheduling regular HydraFacials at Images (at least seasonally) to fight the signs of aging and environmental damage.
If you’re looking to really boost the effects of your HydraFacial in Mokena, getting treatments monthly is even more effective at delivering consistently beautiful skin.
Can HydraFacial be paired with other Images treatments?
Absolutely! We find that a HydraFacial pairs well with almost all of the treatments offered at Images, but here are a few of our favorite pairings:
HydraFacial + Injectables
For those looking to achieve an all-around more youthful appearance, we find that pairing your injectable treatments with a HydraFacial in Mokena can be incredibly effective!
Get these treatments in the same visit and leave our office with relaxed dynamic wrinkles from BOTOX®, enhanced cheekbones with fillers, and gorgeously glowing skin!
Can they be performed on the same day? Yes!
HydraFacial + Halo
Pairing HydraFacial with ablative laser treatments, like the Halo Laser (in the weeks that follow your laser treatment, of course) can certainly enhance your results.
If you have ever had an ablative laser treatment, you know that there is a period of healing time that involves lots of skin shedding. A HydraFacial can speed up this process and more effectively remove the dead or damaged skin we are trying to eliminate with the laser treatments, while also giving you a dose of much-needed hydration.
Can they be performed on the same day? No – wait until skin is fully healed
HydraFacial + BBL
Patients with more stubborn pigmentation or sun damage concerns may consider Forever Young BBL treatments from Images to address these issues.
To further enhance the results of these broad band light (BBL) treatments, consider pairing with a HydraFacial to further pave the way for clear, bright new skin to come through.
Can they be performed on the same day? Depends on your tolerance – your specialist can advise!
HydraFacial + Vampire Facial
The increasingly-popular Vampire Facial pairs platelet-rich plasma serum derived from your blood with microneedling to deliver a noticeably more youthful appearance.
Treat your visibly plumper and tighter skin to a HydraFacial in Mokena post-Vampire Facial for seriously selfie-worthy results.
Can they be performed on the same day? No – wait until skin is fully healed
