The Celebrity Secret to Instantly Visible Results and Healthy, Radiant Skin
HydraFacial, is a breakthrough skin treatment that is quickly gaining a reputation as the ‘celebrity facial’ due to its Hollywood following. HydraFacial merges innovative technology with some key elements of an advanced facial to achieve longer-lasting results than a traditional facial in a convenient, thirty-minute treatment.
An Innovative Modality For Non Ablative Facial Rejuvenation
The secret to HydraFacial is a patented spiral tip that can simultaneously exfoliate, clear blocked pores and deliver nourishing serums. By combining a number of proven techniques into one treatment HydraFacial achieves comprehensive results with less risk of irritation to the skin. Immediately after treatment there is an instantly noticeable improvement in skin tone and texture.
Why Is It Different?
The overall goal of HydraFacial is to restore skin health. The HydraFacial delivers serums in the final stage of the treatment in a way that increases the uptake of antioxidants in the skin when compared to manually applying creams to the skin.1 ￼
Steps in a HydraFacial treatment
Cleansing and exfoliation using serums combined with a mild dermabrasion.
A gentle skin peel helps soften the skin to prepare for painless extractions in the next step.
Painless, automated extractions via gentle suction to clean out pores.
A serum containing anti-oxidants and Hyaluronic Acid is applied to nourish and protect.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE TREATMENT?
There are different tips used on the Hydrafacial machine in each stage of treatment and these tips will be passed over the skin in smooth, stroking movements. A series of HydraFacial serums are delivered onto the skin through the spiral tip and then are immediately “vacuumed” away, along with loosened skin particles. The first step uses a cleansing solution, the second step uses a mild skin peel to soften the pores prior to an extraction step which cleans out the pores. The final step delivers nutrients to the skin and these anti-oxidant serums revitalise the skin and improve the quality and health of the skin.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
The treatment usually takes around 30 minutes to an hour and you can return to work or other activities immediately after treatment. Any redness will dissipate within a few minutes of finishing the treatment.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NEEDED TO SEE RESULTS?
Most people feel an instant improvement in their skin after each treatment. A series of 6 treatments are usually recommended for improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne and oily skin.
HydraFacial is useful for enhancing the results of other advanced treatments. For example, it can prepare skin before laser or surgery, or help freshen the skin after the use of dermal fillers or anti-wrinkle injections. Research combining Intense Pulsed Light photo-rejuvenation and HydraFacial showed that HydraFacial minimised the levels of free-radicals in the skin following treatment.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
HydraFacial is performed using a vacuum based skin abrasion tip, known as the Hydropeel Tip. Throughout the treatment the process exfoliates while bathing the underlying skin with antioxidant serums and nutrients. The serums are delivered into the skin under slight pneumatic pressure to assist the formulations to achieve the optimal effect on the skin.
The serums are specially formulated to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, congested pores, hyper-pigmentation and acne-prone skin and leave the skin looking younger, fresher and more radiant.
