HydraFacial vs. Hydrodermabrasion: Whats the Difference?


Here at The Style & Beauty Bar we are excited to announce our newest treatment , The Hydrofacial has quickly become one of our most requested and popular services.  This service is excellent because it is soothing, moisturizing, non-invasive  and safe for most skin types.

But the question we’re  asked the most is: What is the difference between Hydrafacial and Hydrodermabrasion/ Hydrofacial?

So here’s the breakdown:

HydraFacial is a skin resurfacing treatment that cleanses, exfoliates, extracts, and hydrates the skin. With its patented Vortex tip, the device simultaneously removes dead skin cells and other impurities from the skin, while infusing the cells with super serums that cleanse and moisturize.


Hydrodermabrasion  is a term used simultaneously for both Hydrafacial and Hydrofacial and can be defined as a dermatological procedure which combines simultaneous dermal infusion of medicinal products with crystal-free exfoliation.

Our popular service The Hydrofacial uses the natural healing powers of oxygen and water to cleanse and exfoliate the skin without the use of hard crystals or abrasive textured wands. Thus promoting  deeply hydrated and healthier looking skin. This exfoliation technology combines ultra-hydrating fluids and super serums to permeate deep into your skin, allowing cells to drink the nourishing active ingredients they  need for fresh and healthy regeneration. 

So whats the difference? Hydrafacial is a trademarked brand name of a specific patented hydrodermabrasion technology and machine whereas Hydrodermabrasion is the actual process. Here at The Style & Beauty Bar we perform our Hydrofacials using a hydrodermabrasion machine that is FDA registered and superb in quality. We also use the purest serums on the market which are all made in the USA. Our focus is on providing the best service and results for our clients - irregardless of brand. 

Furthermore we have many clients who have stated they feel virtually no difference in the actual process or results regardless of the brand name of machine used.

However, we totally understand with so many treatment options available, it can be a confusing task to figure out exactly which treatment is right so here at The Style & Beauty Bar our mission is  to offer the best affordable and effective options for your specific skincare needs.
