Is your skin healthy?
Although this may seem like a silly question, it is a question we need to ask ourselves. There are tremendous environmental changes that affect the health of our skin. Pollution is abundant, rain or shine, and the side effects of this pollution can lead to a variety of negative side effects. When our cells are not fully hydrated they cannot function at their optimal level. Unhealthy skin can lead to: wrinkles, fine lines, and loss of facial collagen, pigmentation, white heads, black heads, dry skin and premature aging. Utilizing our HydraFacial MD technology we can restore the health of your skin.
What is the HydraFacial MD?
HydraFacial MD is the solution for unhealthy skin. It is the next generation of skin renewal and offers tremendous benefits over a traditional facial. Utilizing vitamin-rich serums, the skin is cleansed of dead skin cells and impurities and then bathed in moisture and antioxidants. The infusion of antioxidants is the hydration necessary for healthy radiant skin. Our system also provides a diamond-tip microdermabrasion and our classic MicroPeel, which utilizes the topical application of our custom acids.
What is a Microdermabrasion?
At CosMedic Skincare, our microdermabrasion services are offered with our crystal-free HydraFacial MD system. The diamond tip and adjustable suction enables us to tailor your treatment to your unique condition, your specifications, and your desired results.
What is a MicroPeel?
Our classic facial service, the MicroPeel, is a combination treatment of our HydraFacial MD microdermabrasion followed by the topical application of our custom acids. The added benefit of the treatment is the chemical peel portion of the treatment. When the acids are applied to your face after the microdermabrasion, you can expect heightened results from your treatment. Our MicroPeel services are customized for each patient based on their goals and the current health of their skin and can help improve hyperpigmentation, erase fine lines, and most importantly, renew the health of your skin.
What does the HydraFacial MD literally do?
The HydraFacial MD utilizes a series of topical solutions that encourage healthy cell turnover plus a mixture of antioxidants, anti-inflammatory and hydrating ingredients. The ingredients are infused using a vortex technology that enables these beneficial ingredients to reach deeper within the skin’s surface, and bring about toxin removal and healthy cell renewal.
Everything about CosMedic Skincare is great. Reasonably priced treatments and friendly staff. I’ve had several microderms by Lisa and I adore her. She is incredibly professional, personable, and tailors each treatment to my needs.

How long does treatment take?
HydraFacial MD treatments, as well as Microdermabrasion treatments, typically last 30 minutes. Our classic MicroPeel treatment is approximately a 45 minute procedure.
How often do I need to repeat treatment?
We are bombarded by pollutants in our daily lives that greatly affect how healthy our skin is and how quickly we age. For patients with normal skin that is not affected by acne, we recommend monthly treatments to maintain the health of your skin. If your skin is compromised or unhealthy, it may be necessary to initially receive treatments more frequently to undue environmental damages.
What areas can be treated?
The HydraFacial MD, Microdermabrasion, and MicroPeel are ideally suited to treat the face and neck. We have also found treatment to be effective in treating unhealthy skin of the chest, back, and hands. Essentially, the HydraFacial MD can be instrumental in treating any skin surface areas on the body plagued by unhealthy skin.
Is the treatment painful?
The HydraFacial MD does not cause any discomfort. Most patients find the procedure calming and relaxing. If you are seeking microdermabrasion treatment, the sensation is often compared to the feel of a cat’s tongue. The rough sensation combined with suction enables the exfoliation of impurities and dead skin cells. Our classic skin treatment, the MicroPeel, combines the Microdermabrasion with a chemical peel. The sensation from the peel varies based on the acids utilized and comfort level varies from patient to patient.
What are the common side effects?
There are little side effects to these 3 facial treatments in our office. You may experience some slight redness to the skin after treatment. This can easily be covered up with makeup. If you have any allergies, please advise our medical staff before seeking treatment. This is by no means a complete list of side effects. A complete list of potential side effects is available during your consultation.
What does the treatment cost?
At CosMedic Skincare we endeavor to provide the best value for our patients. We offer two types of service options for our Seattle patients. You can either purchase treatments independently or you can purchase a package of services and receive an overall discount per treatment. We strive to provide you the best combined value of cost and exceptional patient care under the skilled hands of Dr. Jodie Reinertson. In keeping with that desire, we offer a fantastic opportunity for our Seattle-based patients to save money on treatments with our Patient Recognition Program. Please ask to be enrolled in our program and you will receive monthly cost-savings opportunities at CosMedic Skincare. For your convenience, you can request to be registered online, click here.
