Our super-skin treatment, HydraFacial provides a deep detox for your skin, replenishing the skin with enhanced hydration and providing a glow like no other. In this blog, our skincare specialists will be outlining everything you need to know about how the treatment works, safety and who this treatment is most suitable for. Hydrafacial is a popular option for those who want a glow with little downtime and no needles. Unlike ordinary facials, Hydrafacial is tailored to patient skin needs and a full 7 step process from exfoliation to hydratration.
What is a Hydrafacial?
HydraFacial uses patented technology to cleanse, extract and hydrate using ‘super serums’ with nourishing ingredients to create an instant glow. The treatment uses a 7 step process to achieve unbeatable skin rejuvenation results.
The 7 steps of HydraFacial:
Hydrafacial treatment begins with Lymphatic drainage. This works to improve the circulation of your lymph system and helps to eliminate toxins beneath the skin. This is helpful for cogested skin and acene prone skin types to aliviate clogged pores and prevent future breakouts. Hydrafacials detox method brings toxins and impurities up out of the skin, leaving clear, clean and refreshed skin.
Next is cleanse, carefully deep cleansing the skin to prep for the peel and boosters. With a a deep cleanse the skin will absorb more nutrients and benefits of the hydrafacial treatment.
After cleaning, we then carefully uncover a new layer of your skin with gentle exfoliation and relaxing resurfacing chemical peel. This peel uses a combination of acids such as glycolic and salicylic. Glycolic acid is a brigtening AHA and salicyclic acid is a anti-inflammatory BHA- working in harmony these two acids tackle both inflammation and dull dehydrated skin.
Extraction is a very popular part of the procedure and what customers often see as the “gunky”. During the extraction step we remove any debris from your pores with a painless suction device. This is then displayed in the clear bottle in the bottom of the hydrafacial machine. By extracting with suction we can protect the skin from trauma by avoiding manual extraction with metal tools that can damage skin tissues causing pigmentation and scarring.
Following the extraction, we need to nourish the skin with intense moisturisers that quench and hydrate your clear pores. Hydration is an essential step with hyrdafacial after extraction removes all dead skin cells, replacing this with anti-oxidants, hyaloronic acid, amino acids and vitamins to rebuild strength collage and elastin. This step can be customised with boosters for a tailored skin experience and for maximum results.
6. Fuse & Protect
Following the extraction and hydration, we saturate the skin’s surface with antioxidants to ensure maximum glow. Protecting is key for hydrafacial treatments to feed the skin vitamins and nutrients for balanced skin PH and overall glow. Restoring the acid mantle and balancing out skin tone and texture is important in this key hydrafacial step.
7. LED Light Therapy
