Sand is for the beach, not your face!
Coastal Plastic Surgery Institute is extremely pleased to introduce Hydra-Facial to Northwest Florida and the Emerald Coast. Hydra-Facial is a revolutionary medical-grade system designed to hydrate and nourish your skin unlike any facial treatment you’ve ever experienced.
What is Hydra-Facial?
Hydra-Facial is a comprehensive system of cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, and hydration of very gentle skin care in one treatment that can usually be used on all skin types. This resurfacing system usually targets oily and clogged areas, wrinkles, and fine lines, resulting in more clear, radiant, and even younger looking skin. Sessions are typically 20 minutes in length and can be performed in the office. The treatment begins with a gentle cleanser followed by Exfoliation using the Hydra-Facial Vortex system, which is a vacuum with an attachment that applies the serums. Gly-Sal, a glycolic-salicylic product is then applied to nourish and cleanse the skin. The next step is Extraction, which removes debris and contaminants from deep within the skin pores. Finally, Anti-Ox+, a solution of antioxidants and hyaluronics is applied to nourish and hydrate your skin. Your technician will tailor the treatment to target specific skin conditions and troubled areas.
Does it hurt?
This non-surgical and non-invasive treatment is painless, the results immediate, and with proper maintenance, will last for weeks. Some patients do experience mild redness after treatment which often is similar in appearance to a flushness of the skin, but it usually dissipates within 20 to 30 minutes after a treatment. It is recommended though that you do not plan on being in the sun for long periods of time immediately following the treatment.
The suggested treatment plan for optimal results would be to start with one treatment every four weeks. After that, maintenance sessions can be scheduled once every two months. Treatments can be individually customized to include the use of a medical-grade Gly-Sal, DermaBuilder, and/or Growth Factor for enhanced results.
What about my other skin care products and treatments?
Hydra-Facial can be used in conjunction with other treatments, such as Forever Young BBL Fotofacial, Botox/Dysport and facial fillers such as JuveDerm. Of course, Hydra-Facial should be used in conjunction with a daily regimen of skin care to maintain, protect and enhance the health of your skin.

Hydrafacial MD (30 minutes)
This multi-step deep cleansing facial is like no other as it cleanses, exfoliates and extracts to eliminate toxins and dead skin cells while nourishing the skin with vital nutrients. The Hydrafacial MD is perfect for treating fine lines, wrinkles, skin laxity, uneven skin texture, brown spots and oily, enlarged pores.
Deluxe Hydrafacial MD (60 minutes)
The Deluxe Hydrafacial MD adds growth factor with red light therapy to the Hydrafacial treatment to further stimulate collagen production and achieve longer-lasting results. Treatment ends with a soothing facial massage.
Lactic Acid Peels are milder than traditional chemical peels as they are derived from milk products. These peels are ideal for sensitive skin, or darker skin tones, and are effective in treating sun damage, acne scars, acne, lines and wrinkles, and overall skin tone and texture.
Salicylic Acid Peels are great cleansing peels designed to unclog pores, eliminating acne blemishes. Additionally, this peel is excellent for reducing fine lines and wrinkles and enhancing overall skin tone.
Glycolic Acid Peels are ideally suited to reduce wrinkles, superficial blemishes, scars, and uneven pigmentation including sun spots and dark circles under the eyes. This peel is effective in removing blemishes and brightening the skin.
Green Tea Lactic Peel
A medium strength peel, the Green Tea Lactic Peel smoothens and brightens the skin without drying it out. The gentle combination of green tea and willow extracts allow the alpha hydroxyl acids (AHA) to exfoliate without irritation. The result is firm and radiant skin. The Green Tea Lactic Peel is great for all skin types, particularly dry, dull skin and hyperpigmentation.
Glycolic Peel 33% (30 minutes)
This classic, medium strength peel rapidly exfoliates the superficial layers of the skin, removing dead epidermal cells to make way for younger, healthier cells and skin. Results are visible right after the first treatment as it instantly unclogs pores, smooths out skin texture and clarifies complexion. This peel is ideal for individuals with non-sensitive, unevenly textured skin or acne prone skin.
Beta Peel 22% (30 minutes)
Our Beta Peel is a deep clarifying treatment that exfoliates and rids the stratum corneum (the topmost layers of the skin) of dead cells in order to make way for softer, smoother-looking skin. This medium strength peel unclogs pores and helps fade hyperpigmentation for a more radiant complexion. The Beta Peel is safe for all skin types and is particularly great for active acne and acne prone skin.
Dermaplane Facial (30 minutes)
Our dermaplane facial is a quick and easy procedure that manually removes vellus hair (“peach fuzz”) using a handheld blade to gently remove the unwanted hair. In the process, the skin is exfoliated, removing dead skin cells to make way for healthier, smoother skin. This treatment is great for individuals who are embarrassed by the appearance of peach fuzz or wish to exfoliate their skin without the use of chemicals.
ZO Ossential Stimulator Treatment (30 minutes)
The ZO Ossential Stimulator treatment combines salicylic, lactic and citric acids to gently yet effectively exfoliate the skin, improving skin tone and texture. The appearance of fine lines and wrinkles is also minimized. This is the perfect lunchtime peel for all skin types. For optimal results, we recommend scheduling repeat treatments.
ZO 3 Step Peel (20-30 minutes)
The ZO Step Peel is a blend of TCA, salicylic and lactic acids that penetrate through the outer layers of the skin to significantly improve skin health and various conditions. The exfoliative treatment boosts the production of collagen for firmer skin and wrinkle reduction. The ZO Step peel can also be used to treat acne, skin laxity, sun damage and uneven skin tone.
Gentleman’s Facial (30 minutes)
