The HydraFacial is one of the most popular facial treatments right now and even in Kathmandu. It’s so popular, that one is performed every 15 seconds around the world. That stat alone is impressive, but the treatment’s become the go-to facial for celebs, your co-worker, and Instagram mutuals because it targets many of the most common skincare concerns like dryness and signs of ageing with little to no side effects.
For those unfamiliar, the HydraFacial is a medical-grade resurfacing treatment that clears out your pores and hydrates your skin. It’s offered across Kathmandu at licensed medical professional facilities, or where a certified HydraFacial aesthetician is present. The four-step treatment includes cleansing, exfoliating, extracting, and hydrating the skin with serums that are infused into pores with the HydraPeel Tip, a pen-like device.
“The HydraFacial is a multistep facial treatment typically performed with a proprietary machine (HydraFacial MD) manufactured by Edge Systems. In one session, aestheticians can use the HydraFacial [device] to cleanse, exfoliate, extract, and deliver a variety of rejuvenating serums,” explains Glen Crawford, MD, of Schweiger Dermatology Group in Philadelphia.
It’s become an in-demand service, even in Kathmandu, because it creates an instant “wow factor” in terms of brightening and firming skin, says Sarah Akram, master aesthetician at Sarah Akram Skincare in Alexandria, Virginia. People can get the treatment before a big event or regularly to maintain skin health, she adds.
At Dolly’s, we have the latest machine for HydraFacial which gives results faster than the old-gen machine.

What Are the HydraFacial’s Skincare Benefits?
A HyraFacial treatment can improve your skin in a ton of ways. Its many benefits include a more hydrated, bright, plump, and clear complexion. Plus, it can also improve signs of aging. “The treatment reduces fine lines and wrinkles, increases firmness, evens tone, texture, and brown spots, as well as reducing enlarged pores,” says Dr. Guanche.
How does a HydraFacial differ from microdermabrasion or a traditional chemical facial peel?
There are a few key differences. For example, microdermabrasion treatments use manual extractions, while a HydraFacial uses a vacuum-like tip to cleanse deeper down than a traditional extraction. That’s also much less painful. Additionally, chemical peels use acids and are most effective on lighter skin tones, whereas HydraFacials can be used on all shades.
“[The treatment] takes its name from the root word hydrate—this ability to moisturise the skin separates the HydraFacial™ from all other skin resurfacing procedures,”explains Boston-based, board-certified dermatopathologist Dr. Gretchen Frieling. “The treatment is soothing, refreshing, non-irritating and immediately effective.”
Is it safe for all skin types?
HydraFacials can be performed on most skin types, including very sensitive complexions. But, those with active rashes, sunburns, or rosacea should abstain from HydraFacials, which can cause further damage or flare ups. “Also, some of the ingredients used during the HydraFacial, such as salicylic acid, haven’t been tested or proven safe during pregnancy,” adds Frieling.
How many treatments do I need to see results?
“Many patients report seeing visible skin refinement and an even, radiant skin tone after just one treatment,” explains Frieling. And yes, I co-sign this. My skin has receipts. 60-minutes and change later I emerged a glower, dewier version of myself that lasted into the latter half of the week.
The HydraFacial is a treatment that is suitable for all skin tones and requires no downtime. In fact, your complexion will likely look better walking out the door. “Many patients report seeing visible skin refinement and an even, radiant skin tone after just one treatment,” says Dr. Frieling.
