What is a Skin Peel?

Peels are a non-surgical treatment in which a topical serum is applied to the skin to eliminate the dull and damaged cells at the surface, revealing fresher and healthier skin underneath. Peels vary in terms of their “depth,” based on the particular skin condition and treatment goals they are addressing.

What is a Hydrafacial?

A Hydrafacial is not a facial! The Hydrafacial system, available at Cosmedica, Dr. Benchetrit’s Montreal cosmetic surgery practice, combines the infusion of patient-specific topical solutions with water-based exfoliation and vacuum extraction of skin debris to treat a number of common skin conditions, including the following:

  • Oily, blemish-prone or acne-prone skin
  • Dry, flaky patches of skin
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Red, blotchy patches of skin
  • Sun-damaged or overexposed skin
  • Generally dull-looking skin

A Hydrafacial will exfoliate the outer layers of damaged skin and infuse special solutions into the dermis to allow the growth of fresh, healthy skin that feels smooth and glows!

Hydrafacial – What to Expect

Hydrafacials are performed in our Montreal office. Prior to treatment, one of medical aestheticians will thoroughly cleanse your face and then choose one or several specialized medical-grade solutions specifically designed to address your skin issues. They will then gently glide the Hydrafacail handpiece across the facial skin. Only HydraFacial uses patented technology to cleanse, extract, and hydrate. HydraFacial super serums are made with nourishing ingredients that create an instantly gratifying glow in just 3 steps.


Gentle exfoliation and smooth resurfacing will allow a new, healthier skin to appear


Painless suction will remove the debris from your pores. Intense moisturizers will then be used to hydrate the new moisture-loving skin.


Antioxidants and peptides will saturate the skin’s surface to maximize the healthy glow.

Hydrafacial treatment does not require any downtime, and you can immediately return to your normal routine. We advise that you diligently use broad-spectrum sunscreen, as your skin will temporarily be sensitive to the sun. You will notice your skin feels smoother and has a healthy glow. For continued results, we recommend you undergo HydraFacial treatments on a regular basis. One of our skin care specialists can put together a treatment regimen designed for you.

Hydrafacial can be combined with another procedure, such as IPL or Morpheus8, for even more transformative results. Inquire about your options with our team.

How is The Hydrafacial Different From Other Dermabrasion Procedures?

The patented Vortex-Fusion delivery system that is unique to HydraFacial is used for exfoliation, extraction and the hydration of your skin. The spiral design of this system delivers extractions painlessly.

What is Vortex-Fusion Delivery System Technology?

The HydroPeel® Tips have a special spiral design that, when used in combination with the unique HydraFacial vacuum technology and serums, create a vortex-like effect that easily dislodges and removes skin impurities while at the same time infusing effective hydrating solutions into the skin.

Is Hydrafacial The Right Treatment For You?

HydraFacial takes care of all your skincare needs! It can be utilized for the pre-conditioning of the skin before a laser treatment or injections. HydraFacial treatments will contribute to the maintenance of healthy skin and improve the effectiveness of your home care product regimen.

The Hydrafacial Treatment Can Be Customized!

There are three different levels of treatment available, according to your needs: The 30 minute Clarifying treatment, the 45 minute Deluxe treatment that also includes a skin booster as well as an LED light therapy with a jelly mask, or the ultimate Platinum VIP treatment that includes everything in the Deluxe treatment as well as lymphatic drainage.
