"Elysium has been my go to SurgiSpa for over 5 years now. I absolutely love their staff and have dealt with each individual over the years with nothing but wonderful things to say about each of them. They can answer any questions that you might have and are consistently educated on the newest treatments and options for your skin.

He’s extremely educated and personable which can be a tough combination to find. I have been seen by Tylar and Swlvia over the years and again the feel is always consistent, I am never rushed, I feel like I am in good hands and both providers are professional. Victoria has been my esthetician and has performed multiple hydrafacials on me. She does such a fantastic job and I’m always getting compliments after my facials with her. She gives great suggestions for my skin to look it’s best. Allison is the practice manager and is always so patient when scheduling my appointments. She works with me and always has a smile on her face. The practice is always clean and well tended to. The location is very easy to get to with plenty of metered parking. Overall, I love this place.

How Does a HydraFacial Work?
The HydraFacial system is designed for men and women of all ages and skin types who want to treat acne, decreased skin elasticity, large pores, wrinkles, oily skin, rough texture, or uneven skin tone. After an initial consultation to determine your treatment based on your goals, your HydraFacial will include six main steps: cleansing, exfoliation, extraction of the pores, moisturizing, a nourishing serum, and protection. These parts are customized to the needs of your complexion with the best cleansers, levels of exfoliation, moisturizers, and products. You may have some redness on your face after your treatment, but in general, you can get right back to your daily activities. You should notice improvements to your skin shortly after your procedure with final results visible in 3 – 7 days. To maintain your results, we suggest these treatments about every 4 – 6 weeks. Our staff will help you schedule future treatments and discuss the best tips for your home skin care routine.

What to Expect after a HydraFacial
If you want, you will be able to put on makeup following your treatment to cover mild redness before you return to your daily routine. You will likely have visible improvements to your complexion right after your procedure, with final results developing in a few days. To maintain the improvements to your complexion, Dr. Mick suggests getting these treatments once a month. During your initial consultation, we can help you schedule ongoing treatments and talk about a home skin care routine to keep your complexion healthy in between professional treatments.
What is a HydraFacial?
A HydraFacial is a medical-grade hydradermabrasion device that carries out a three-part regimen — cleansing, exfoliating, and infusing skin with intensive serums. It differs from traditional facials by utilizing a unique, patented Vortex-Fusion delivery system to exfoliate, extract, and hydrate skin.
What are the results of a HydraFacial like?
HydraFacials are an optimal treatment to include in your routine facial care regime. Though traditional facials are effective, a HydraFacial takes the process a step further by cleansing out your pores at a deeper level. A HydraFacial can help improve the overall tone and texture of your skin. Based on your skin condition, we can add additional elements to the facial to treat several types of skin irregularities and concerns.
Can I combine this with other treatments?
Several of our patients combine their HydraFacial with various treatments, which can be done during the same treatment session. This includes dermal fillers, BOTOX, and in an accompanying appointment may also include a laser peel. Incorporating these skin rejuvenation treatments can provide an optimal outcome.
How often should I receive a HydraFacial?
HydraFacials may be performed as necessary as you feel your skin needs it. Most of our patients schedule their HydraFacials a couple of months apart and undergo traditional facials in between. In your consultation, our team will discuss with you when you should receive a HydraFacial to maintain the desired results.
Is a HydraFacial better than a chemical or laser peel?
All of these treatments are effective and serve different purposes. Both chemical peels, laser treatments, and medical-grade facials treat a variety of skin irregularities. You can have these treatments at different times of the year to attain great results. The HydraFacial, however, can be performed more often and become a more regular part of your routine, whereas other treatments that may require a bit more downtime may only be done once or twice a year.
Are HydraFacials safe for all skin types?
Absolutely! One of the best features of HydraFacials is its compatibility with virtually all skin types. Whether your skin is oily, dry, acne-prone, or sensitive, a HydraFacial can be tailored to your specific needs, offering benefits without any harsh side effects.
