I'm considering getting the HydraFacial machine from Edge Systems. I know that they have a few models available in different price points, but haven't decided which would be the best investment, yet.  Has anyone used it, or currently own one, if so what do you think of it?  Better / worse than other microderm machines? Ease of use?  How have your clients responded to it?  Would you use / purchase it again?  I would greatly appreciate any thoughts or recommendations on this.  Thanks in advance!

Hi Tiffany,

I'm a little late to this thread, but I'd like to share my knowledge with you and others.   We own two Hydrafacial machines and they stay busy all the time.   The treatment is very popular.   One machine was purchased new and the other used.   The MAP is $150 for a base treatment.   Consumables cost about $30-$35 per base treatment (versus the $25 Edge quotes).  

As per the ridiculously priced consumables.   There are some alternatives out there, but and this is a big but, the cap is proprietary.   I believe that Edge created their own cap mold, so the bottles only fit in the machine using their cap.   To use an alternate product requires you to remove the cap and re-use it with the other product.   This introduces a serious contamination risk without proper sanitization of the cap. 

Re:  IPL vs. Hdyrafacial.   Apples and oranges.  As a Med Spa owner with tons of equipment, the comparison is laughable.   The Hydrafacial machine provides a simple, easy to administer, effective facial, with some excellent add-on treatments.   Clients love it.   A serious IPL machine does much more (and costs much more).

I work at a medical spa that has a hydrafacial machine and my clients (and myself) love it! The results have been truly amazing! It is our most popular facial.

Glad to have found this site.  I was looking at the Hydrafacial machine myself and the information on this forum is truly valuable.  Has anyone heard of the Beautiful Image facial and body sculpting device?

I own the HydraFacial Nectre & I feel confident their are plenty of other owners who have developed their OWN highly effective solutions & serums as a response to the high cost of purchasing it's specific solutions/serums.  My hope is that some of these "forward-thinkers" could share their formulations with me.  I look forward to the flood of responses!!! (BTW...I purchased my machine from it's original owner & was no longer under warranty, so I am aware that if it was, it would void that warranty.)

@Juliette: Sorry, but I don't know any good sites for used equipment. However, you can always call whatever company makes the equipment that you are interested and ask if they have used equipment (generally from demos or returns/upgrades).

 

@Lise: I put this equipment purchase on hold for now, but I'm glad to hear that you really liked it. :-)

Hi Tiffany! I briefly worked at a spa that had the HydraFacial machine, I did several facials with it and also received the facial a few times. It is fantastic and  the results I found were great. If you purchase the machine just be sure to have the Rep for it train everyone as the video/dvd is a little different in the procedures shown. It is easy and actually fun and the products that go with it are great!
