The term ‘HydraFacial’ conjures images of standing under a waterfall, face tipped towards the sun and water splashing gently over your skin to leave you fresh, cool and wide awake.
Whilst we can’t promise you waterfalls, the good news is that a HydraFacial treatment actually does feel that good!
This is a treatment that’s designed for everyone. It detoxifies the skin, removes dead skin cells and provides long lasting hydration and cell nutrition to support renewed collagen levels. The results are instant and you’ll leave feeling refreshed, revitalised and glowing.
What is a HydraFacial Treatment?
Also known as hydradermabrasion, this is a treatment designed to exfoliate, remove dead skin cells, detoxify, unblock pores and rehydrate the skin whilst providing exceptional nutrient support.
Specially formulated serums are delivered to the surface of the skin using a spiral tip and pneumatic pressure. The tip has multiple abrasive edges to exfoliate the skin and nutrients are delivered as it’s moved in a planning motion across the skin’s surface. Excess serum, dead skin cells and any other waste product extracted during the process (more than you’d think!) are hygienically vacuumed away and a new tip is used for every patient.
The treatment has been developed as a gentler alternative to the previously popular microdermabrasion, which traditionally uses a stream of abrasive crystals to exfoliate and cleanse.
Who can benefit from a HydraFacial?
Everyone! This treatment can be specially tailored to suit any skin type and target any skin problem. From acne, blackheads and hyperpigmentation (unwanted spots of dark discolouration) to fine lines and wrinkles, a HydraFacial can provide immediate improvement.
How long does it last?
For lasting results this should be considered a monthly treatment and used in conjunction with a recommended daily skin care routine carried out at home. However, as the results are immediate we also highly recommend this as a one off treatment for a pampering treat or a special occasion as it’s guaranteed to make you feel and look great!
What to expect
As with most of our treatments your first appointment will include a full consultation and one of our experienced practitioners will take a full medical history and walk you through the treatment process, including any risks or contraindications. There are very few side effects and the treatment isn’t painful in any way but you may find you are a little red and feel a warm ‘glow’ for several hours immediately after the procedure.
The treatment lasts for approximately 30 minutes and there is no recommended recovery time. Before you leave we will apply aftercare products including an SPF moisturiser to keep you looking fresh and protect your newly cleansed skin from unwanted pollutants and UVA.
Why not treat yourself?
This is without doubt the best short term solution to younger looking, brighter, cleaner skin; we guarantee you’ll leave feeling refreshed and amazing!
