What is it?

A HydraFacial is a more modern version of a microdermabrasion. It combines both a mechanical and chemical exfoliation of the skin. Similar to a micro it uses a vertex head and central vacuum to remove excess skin build up. It consists of 4 different steps to give the skin a deep cleanse and bright glow. The combination of the deep cleanse, chemical peel, extractions and anti oxidant protection leaves the skin looking fresh and radiant.

Key Elements/Benefits:
  • No down time
  • Deep cleanse of the skin
  • Removal of imperfections and blackheads
  • LED post treatment

How many treatments are required?

If you have lots of congestion or breakouts we recommend having 1 treatment every 2 – 4 weeks for the first 4, after your concerns begin to resolve a treatment every 6 – 8 weeks is adequate. Many patients have a series of 6 treatments about 2 weeks apart for optimal results.

How long will the results last?

The initial effect of the HydraFacial will usually last 1 – 2 weeks. We find most patient results last longer the more treatments they have. For extra longevity we recommend combining this treatment with Laser Genesis or Limelight.

Prior to treatment:

We recommend ceasing any retinol (vitamin A) use to reduce the amount of inflammation throughout the treatment. If you wear makeup to the appointment this will be cleansed off prior.

During the treatment:

A small tip uses a vacuum suction is used to remove the impurities whilst using chemicals to aid the process. The treatment is completely pain free – patients find this treatment very relaxing. The treatment takes roughly 30 – 45mins (a great lunchtime treatment).

After the treatment:

Your skin will be slightly flushed – this only lasts a couple of hours. The skin will appear more illuminate, bright and more importantly glowing. LED is performed post treatment to enhance the glow and reduce the bacteria in the skin.

Potential risks and side effects:

HydraFacial is an extremely safe treatment for the face and therefore carries minimal risks.
The most common side effect is slight flushing.
