How partnering the two most popular skincare treatments today can lead to faster, more effective, and enhanced results!

Unless you’ve been living under a rock the past year, you’d be hard-pressed to not have heard of HydraFacials or Microneedling. HydraFacial MD® is currently taking their radiance boosting technology on a nationwide tour to educate the public on the benefits of their 4-in-1 treatment. SkinPen® Microneedling just gained national recognition for being the only FDA-Approved Microneedling Device on the market. With this astounding recognition and popularity, you may feel as though it’s difficult to decide which treatment to schedule – luckily, you don’t have to! Many Licensed Estheticians” are seeing first -hand, the remarkable improvements in their patient’s skin when they combine BOTH revolutionary treatments. Here’s why!

“I tell my patients that the combination therapy of HydraFacial MD® and SkinPen® Microneedling is like treating their skin from the inside out AND the outside in,” shares Sarah, a certified paramedical esthetician with Face Cosmetic Skincare. “We set up a skin strategy that includes me seeing them every 3 to 4 weeks for either a HydraFacial® or SkinPen® over a series of months,” she explains. “HydraFacials work from the outside in by providing a deep cleanse, extractions, light peel and a moisture infusion that can be customized to treat such conditions as acne, sun damage and premature aging. The SkinPen® works from the inside out by invoking the wound healing cycle deep in the skin and encouraging the growth of fresh, healthy collagen which smooths acne scarring, lessens the appearance of enlarged pores and softens fine lines,” Sara remarks. “It’s truly a match made in skincare heaven that not only delivers incredible results, but is also easy to schedule with downtime and budget consciousness!”

To truly understand why so many patients are enjoying faster and more effective results by combing these two technologies, it’s important to know how they both work!

Treating Skin from the “Outside In” with HydraFacial MD®

What makes HydraFacial MD® so unique? It’s a quadruple threat by including 4 treatments in one service! Your treatment starts with a deep cleansing using a special wand with a patent-pending triple action tip. This simultaneously exfoliates while penetrating a deep cleansing solution into your skin. In addition, light suction whisks away dirt and debris. Next up, your skin is gently exfoliated with an abrasive wand and then bathed in a light chemical peel. This is followed by comfortable suction assisted extractions of blackheads and skin congestion. To finish, your skin is treated to a cooling infusion of antioxidants, humectants and nutrients. You’ll leave feeling plump, hydrated, firm and GLOWING!

Because the products and serums used during your HydraFacial MD® can be customized, this treatment is appropriate for every skincare goal and concern. Salicylic serums and gentle extraction make it a wonderful option for oily/congested skin, while light resurfacing and moisture infusion make it the gold standard for dry, dehydrated and malnourished skin. Your Licensed Esthetician will adjust your treatment each time you visit to ensure that your present condition is treated and you continue to see improvement. It’s no wonder, at 30 minutes per treatment, that HydraFacial MD® is a patient favorite to maintain their skin every 4 weeks.

Treating Skin from the Inside Out with SkinPen® Microneedling

SkinPen® is a medical-grade, state-of-the-art tool, which is available only through licensed skincare professionals working under medical supervision. The “pen” has a disposable tip that is comprised of 14 surgical-grade stainless steel needles, hence the process being called “Microneedling.” Microneedling works by gently creating hundreds of microscopic channels into the dermis as the pen safely glides over your skin. When skin is injured, it heals itself by creating new collagen and elastin. These are the very components of our skin that breakdown with scarring and aging and can lead to uneven skin texture. As a result, SkinPen® controls the rate of injury to safely and predictably encourage new collagen and elastin production, leaving your skin smoother and healthier over time!

SkinPen Microneedling is extremely versatile due to its non-ablative, non-thermal and fractionated approach. It is also one of the few resurfacing treatments that is safe for darker skin types, as the risk of hyperpigmentation is very low. In addition, the micro channels that the treatment creates increases the rate of absorption and effectiveness of any subsequent products placed on the skin.

  • Acne scarring
  • Chickenpox scarring
  • Icepick scarring

  • Post-surgical scarring


  • Smooths skin scarring

  • Reduces the appearance of pores

“These two treatments truly work synergistically to not only treat active skin conditions, but to also PREVENT premature aging,” says Sara excitedly. “We stop producing collagen and elastin in our skin in our late twenties-these, along with fat, are the components of our skin that give it fullness, firmness, spring and bounce,” she explains. “SkinPen® Microneedling encourages more growth, so it can be an integral treatment in your anti-aging skincare regimen to offset this collagen decline. In addition, our skin’s rate of cellular turnover and moisture retention lessens as we age, but this can also be offset with monthly HydraFacials to keep your skin healthy, hydrated and resurfaced! I absolutely love the results I get for my patients who are on this monthly regimen and feel fantastic about prescribing a strategy that truly fits their lifestyles and budgets!”
