How does the Hydrafacial work?

There’s an incredible new treatment that is taking the celebrity world by storm, but which you probably haven’t even heard of! Allow us to introduce to you the Hydrafacial – a treatment that cleanses, extracts and hydrates to improve the appearance of oily and ageing skin. Read below to find out more about this innovative new treatment.

What is the Hydrafacial?

The Hydrafacial is so effective because it mounts a formidable six-stage attack against the imperfections in your skin. We begin with a detox, which eliminates toxins and improves circulation in your treatment area. Next, we cleanse and exfoliate, lifting dead skin cells and any debris that may be preventing healthy cells from rising to the surface of your skin. We then introduce a brightening agent that uses a glycolic and salicylic solution to extract blemishes from the pores and give the skin a healthy glow. The fourth step is the extraction of pesky blackheads from your skin. We then hydrate your skin from the inside out with antioxidants, hyaluronic acid and peptides, decreasing the prominence of fine lines and giving your skin a youthful glow. Finally, we use an infrared LED light to reduce redness and rejuvenate your skin by increasing the production of fresh collagen.

Who is the Hydrafacial for?

Just about anybody will notice great results after a Hydrafacial, whether suffering from a skin condition or not. Whilst certainly an effective method of reducing fine lines and hyperpigmentation, the collagen production that the Hydrafacial encourages will also grant a fresh, rejuvenated glow to those without any major skin complaints. Side effects and downtime are minimal, meaning that you can also have treatment at just about any time.

What does the Hydrafacial treat?

The Hydrafacial can greatly reduce the appearance of:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Dull or saggy skin
  • Irregular pigmentation and hyperpigmentation
  • Enlarged pores and spot
  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Oily, congested or blemished skin

How does the Hydrafacial work?

The Hydrafacial utilises innovative ‘vortex technology’, which vacuums blockages from your pores while also introducing active serums to your skin while in a porous state. Thankfully, this means none of the uncomfortable squeezing or peeling that you may find with traditional facials or chemical peels. Instead, the treatment might be compared to a light massage for your skin! Everything suctioned from your pores is then collected in a bottle attached our machine, meaning that – if you so desire – you can witness just how much oil and debris have been extracted from your skin after treatment! We’ll leave that one up to you!
