Glowing, smooth, and radiant facial skin is something we all crave to achieve as we start to age. When the skin of your face feels fantastic, so do you. People will go to many lengths to achieve this luminous skin, some unaware of perhaps the most effective procedure to unlock stunning results. This specific procedure is known as the Hydrafacial and is offered at either of our premier Buck County locations in New Hope or Sellersville.
HydraFacials are soaring in popularity across our country and are one of our most inquired techniques at Pure by Alpha Dermatology. This extremely hydrating, non-invasive treatment instantly offers even-toned, glowing skin and takes about thirty minutes to complete. No, this isn’t “too good to be true”; it’s absolutely possible for anyone looking for a long-overdue life enhancement. This page is dedicated to assisting anyone wanting to discover more about this breakthrough skin resurfacing procedure and answer questions about the amazing benefits of a HydraFacial.
What Is HydraFacial
A HydraFacial at Pure by Alpha Dermatology is fast and incredibly efficient in delivering moisturizing serums to the skin. The treatment has become the facial spa care routine of choice because they are non-invasive yet effective and can be used for almost any skin condition and on any type of skin. It combines the art of cleaning, exfoliating, extracting, and, most importantly, hydration and antioxidant protection that removes dead skin cells and impurities. During the procedure, we use a wand that vacuums out pores, thus infusing them with serum. This wand system uses a vortex-swirling action to deliver hydration and removes dead skin, dirt, debris, and impurities while cleansing and soothing your skin. Some of our patients report the process itself as being incredibly therapeutic, as our gentle approach is what makes Hydrafacials so calming and refreshing.
What are the Benefits of HydraFacial?
HydraFacial comes with ample benefits, one of them being instant results. It’s the most popular and effective alternative to other harsher facial treatments. Unlike microdermabrasion, which blasts the skin’s surface with aluminum oxide crystals, the Hydrafacial wand is delicate and precise; here are some of the reasons our patients in Pennsylvania love this treatment:
- Works on all skin types
- Consistent outcomes – high-quality treatment every time.
- No downtime; you can immediately see the effects
- Immediate and positive results right away
The best candidate for a HydraFacial is anyone, as the treatment is designed for all skin types! We see all kinds of patients at our two locations in New Hope and Sellersville who share the same goal, better facial skin in a non-invasive way. We find that anyone dealing with skin issues below qualifies as a perfect candidate for our HydraFacial.
- Age spots
- Enlarged and clogged pores
- Oily, acne-prone skin
- Dry skin
- Uneven skin tone
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sun damage
If you haven’t experienced a facial or hydra-care in the past, it can be beneficial to start with two to three HydraFacials a month for about three months. Once you’ve established a better baseline for facial skin health, you can benefit from a once-a-month appointment.
What’s the first step?
The first step to your HydraFacial treatment is to contact Pure by Alpha Dermatology for a consultation. During this appointment, you will meet with a member of the aesthetic team who will examine your facial skin and start a conversation about your expectations. Once complete, we can start your HydraFacial that day or schedule a later appointment with the patient coordinator that will best suit your needs.
What to Expect on the Day of HydraFacial
First and foremost, we aim for you to be relaxed and excited about coming out of your experience with fresher, more pristine skin. Once you are ready, we begin the Hydrafacial with a four-step process.
- Cleansing & Exfoliation: The HydraFacial wand is first used to focus on cleansing and exfoliation. This removes dead skin cells and sebum while gently opening your pores. Patients describe this step as feeling like an electric toothbrush gently pressed to their skin.
- Chemical Peel: Next, the tip of the wand is changed to implement a gentle chemical peel. Unlike other chemical peels that are often aggravating or painful and leave your skin red for hours or days, HydraFacials use a non-irritating mix of salicylic and glycolic acids. This revolutionary peel loosens debris that can be found deep in your skin.
- Extraction: Our skilled technician will then switch the wand into extraction mode, as a painless vortex vacuum sucks away blackheads and impurities from all your pores. These impurities are collected and discarded, leaving your skin purified and deeply cleaned.
- Hydrate: The final and last step of your Hydrafacial is to use the wand to apply a soothing proprietary antioxidative, and hydrating serum with peptides and other beneficial nutrients. This conclusive stage helps to detoxify, rejuvenate, and hydrate the skin.
HydraFacial recovery varies, but it is usually safe to resume your normal activities the next day. We aim to have you leaving Pure by Alpha Dermatology already enjoying your smooth, glowing skin for the next four to six weeks. You can even apply makeup that same day if you’d like to—although most people enjoy the glow from the treatment too much to cover it.
Any redness or peeling caused by the procedure should be gone within a week after treatment.
The cost of a HydraFacial in Pennsylvania can be largely dependent on which facial approach is best for you, among some other factors. We find that the average cost for a thirty-minute session is $199. When you speak with one of our technicians during your appointment, they will be able to give you a better sense of how much your cost will be for the treatment.

Awesome office staff and Carly, Drew and Dr Shrager are phenomenal! Highly recommend. My appointment this time was with Carly and I couldn’t be happier. Very professional, knowledgeable and you can tell she really knows what she’s doing. Alpha Derm is the best!
The results were amazing. I strongly believe that a good filler job means you can’t spot a filler job and she nailed it. I look like me, but more refreshed and younger!
Love the place! The team is wonderful, skilled and very calming. Dr. Shrager is my favorite! Oh, and the renovation looks amazing!
