When reached out to do a facial, I was a little bit hesitant. I’ve never really been a facial person – from the past, I always remembered them to be an itchy, slightly uncomfortable affair that left my skin red and peeling at the end of it. Not exactly all that appealing to me. But after talking to Dana from Buglino Plastic Surgery, she assured me that the HydraFacial was different. Describing it as “gentle enough that a bride could get it done on her wedding day“, it definitely sounded better than the facials of my past. I decided to give it a go.

Dr. Buglino is a Long Island native, much like myself, and is a highly respected surgeon. His practice on Long Island is among one of the nicest I’ve stepped foot in over the years. Dana was wonderful enough to accommodate me before their office officially opened, and a very polite staff was sure to make me feel welcome even as they went about their morning routines. Once my paperwork was filled out (a quick and painless process), Dana showed me around the office. While Buglino Plastic Surgery does focus mainly on cosmetic procedures, the HydraFacial is far from invasive. Once the tour was done, Dana showed me to my treatment room. She was extremely thorough in going over every aspect of the facial, making sure I was comfortable and knew exactly what was going to happen.


Because of its multitude of benefits and all-encompassing treatment features, the HydraFacial benefits practically any form of skin. Other than improving overall skin health, it combats the following common skin problems:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Elasticity & firmness
  • Skin tone & vibrancy
  • Skin texture
  • Hyperpigmentation/photo damage
  • Oily/Congested skin
  • Enlarged pores
  • Advanced signs of aging

Practically any problem you can think of, right? Which was why I was excited when Dana continued to tell me about the benefits. Personally, I’ve always had a problem with oily and congested skin, large pores, and hyperpigmentation. Dana assured me that the exfoliation would help by removing the dead skin cells to help uncover the healthy skin. After that, the skin would be exposed to a Glysal serum – which is a mix of Glycolic and Salicylic acids, proven ingredients to help your skin. Normally, this kind of acid would leave the skin dry and peeling, but the combination of the two is actually gentle enough that I could barely tell that I’d gotten a peel along with my facial!


The HydraFacial also included extractions, which helped clean out my now open pores and protect them with a Beta-HD serum. Designed to help alleviate the congestion of my skin, the extractions left my pores looking like they were barely there by the end of the treatment! Finally, once my pores were nice and open, my skin was treated to a hydrating serum (that’s where the name HydraFacial comes from!). Full of antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid, it helps to nourish and protect the skin, leaving it feel soft and fresh once your treatment is done. Buglino also has a line of products that are designed to treat the skin even after the HydraFacial is finished!


Dana at Dr. Buglino’s and the hydrafacial left my skin feeling dewy and gorgeous. It notably reduced the redness of my skin the following day, and the tone was notably more even and smoother.
