About the HydraFacial
When you want a gentle, yet effective way to treat your facial skin for anti-aging, acne, textural issues, or a combination of conditions, a HydraFacial is a fabulous option in facial rejuvenation treatments. Having the HydraFacial technology available to patients of all skin types provides these men and women with the opportunity to have medical-grade facials to improve their skin. Plastic surgeon Dr. Karen Leong can help you achieve radiant, even-textured skin that feels fresh and clean with just one session or in a series of HydraFacial sessions. You can even accomplish this on your lunch hour because it is quick and shouldn't leave your face red or inflamed. Getting a consistent HydraFacial once a month at one of our Newport Beach, CA locations will reveal better results than a single session. Whether you are concerned about the signs of aging, clogged pores, rough skin texture, or dry spots, plastic surgeon Dr. Karen Leong and her certified medical aestheticians can provide you with a custom HydraFacial plan based on your skin type to address your needs and concerns. Schedule an appointment to find out more about the HydraFacial system and other rejuvenation services to keep your skin looking amazing.
"I can't say enough about Dr. Leong! I have struggled with stubborn unwanted fat around my middle section for years. Regardless of diet and exercise, I always seemed to have a muffin top that left me feeling insecure and uncomfortable. It only took one short meeting with Dr. Leong for me to finally feel confident with having her shape by middle through Liposuction and Thermage. I was previously very reluctant, but after meeting with her, I felt excited and ready. Dr. Leong's honest and straightforward, yet kind and pleasant approach put me right at ease. The proceedure itself went very smooth and Dr. Leong and her staff were helpful and available every step of the way. It has now been six months since my procedure and I am totally blown away with my results. They exceeded every possible expectation and I truly could not be happier!!"- S.K. / Yelp / Sep 19, 2018
"Lower face and neck lift - I’ve done every injectable from Botox to Sculptra and I wanted a more permanent fix to my aging face and neck. I had heard about Dr. Leong through a friend and I decided to make a consultation. When I met Dr. Leong I had my doubts about what this seemingly young doc could do for my 70+ year old face. How could she know what a woman my age needed? As we began to discuss my areas of c..."- E. / RealSelf / Mar 28, 2018

"Five Star Experience! - I have seen Dr. Leong for both medical and cosmetic visits. Her personality is very down to earth but precise which made me feel very comfortable going to her for multiple issues. I first saw Dr. Leong for a few minor skin tags, moles and cherry angiomas that were all over my body which I didn't like esthetically. She removed them with simplicity, quickness and I felt absolutely no pain. She..."- J. / RealSelf / Mar 11, 2018
"What a difference a great physician makes! - A year ago, I had the pleasure of consulting with Dr. Karen Leong for a minor lip asymmetry correction and augmentation. Always the professional, she listened to my concerns and clearly explained my options to get the results I was looking for. Dr. Leong made me feel completely comfortable and injected my lips to my complete satisfaction. Completely natural looking, and symmetrical. ..."- I. / RealSelf / Feb 24, 2018
The HydraFacial system is designed to be suitable for patients of all ages and skin types. The treatment will be customized to suit your specific needs and goals. Skin concerns that may be improved 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 are performed in our office in about 30 minutes. The facial will begin with a thorough consultation to select the best products and options for your facial. As soon as your plan is complete, you will be invited to relax in a private room as your procedure begins. HydraFacials include six main steps: cleansing, exfoliation, pore extraction, hydration, adding nourishment, and protection for your skin. These steps are customized to the needs of your complexion by using the appropriate cleansers, level of exfoliation, moisturizers, serums, and other products. HydraFacials can be further personalized with another complementary facial treatment available at our office.
What to Expect
If needed, you may reapply makeup following your treatment to hide mild redness before you resume your daily activities. You will likely have visible improvements to your complexion immediately after your procedure, with full results visible in 3 – 7 days. To sustain the benefits of your treatment, Dr. Leong recommends these treatments every 4 – 6 weeks. During your consultation, we can help you schedule future treatments and discuss products that may be used at home to best maintain your complexion in between appointments.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a HydraFacial cost?
When you include a HydraFacial in your skin care treatment, you may need a series of facials to get the results you want. Dr. Leong will discuss the fees with you during your skin assessment. There may be additional add-on serums you might need for specific conditions, which will increase the price.
Can I get a facial with active acne?
Yes. Our certified medical aestheticians will glide the HydraFacial handpiece over your face, which has a vacuum-like suction that gently pulls bacteria, dead skin cells, and debris from your skin even with acne. If you need to have a more in-depth extraction, our aestheticians can perform that as well.
How often can I have a HydraFacial?
You may think that more is better with the HydraFacial, however, we recommend having this treatment about once a month. You may need a series of treatments for your skin to adjust, heal, and reveal improvements over time.
I have oily skin. Why would I want to have a HydraFacial?
You may think that you do not need to "hydrate" oily skin, but this is not the case. The HydraFacial will do an amazing job at cleaning out your pores that are regularly oversaturated with oil produced by your own skin. With a HydraFacial, you will experience a cleaner look and feel to your skin. We can also customize what serums and products we use on your skin to improve your oily skin.
Is this treatment good for all skin types?
The good news is that the HydraFacial is one treatment that most patients have excellent results without adverse side effects. If you have sensitive skin or have had a reaction to an ingredient in the serums, you may bring it up at your appointment that you have concerns for your skin.
