What is Hydrafacial?

Hydrafacial is not just a facial.  This is three steps, thirty minutes and the best skin of your life.

It is essentially a peel, microdermabrasion and a hydrating mask all rolled into one.

Hydrafacial uses the latest technology to cleanse, extract and hydrate your skin like never before. The Hydradacial serums are made from nourishing ingredients that help to create a “hydrated glow”  in just three easy steps.

The secret behind Hydrafacial lies in its unique and patented “Vortex-Fusion” delivery system which can exfoliate, extract and hydrate the skin all at the same time. The spiral design of the treatment tips creates a vortex effect that can easily dislodge dead skin cells and impurities in the skin, while at the same time delivers hydrating serums to the skin.

It is a medical-grade “hydra dermabrasion” device which unlike traditional microdermabrasion devices, gently removes the outer lay of skin and simultaneously infuses the skin with hydrating extracts.  It is a truly relaxing and feel good procedure. It is never painful and most patients describe it as a light massage sensation.

Hydrafacial Cleanse and Peel

Step 1) Cleanse and peel to uncover a new layer of skin through exfoliation and resurfacing.

This process uses both chemical and mechanical processes to clean and exfoliate using “Active 4” and “Glycal”. 

The ingredients in Active 4 are Glocosamine HCL to soften the skin, Lactic Acid to exfoliate and Algae Extract to calm and soothe.  As Active 4 is applied to the skin it loosens the dead skin cells and softens the sebum to aid in extractions, while providing residual hydration.

The ingredients in the Glysal include Glycolic acid to exfoliate, brighten and hydrate. Salycilic acid to soften the sebum and eliminate excess oil in the skin.

Hydrafacial Ectract and Hydrate

Step 2) Extract and hydrate by removing debris from pores through painless extractions while hydrating the skin.

Beta-HD is used to aid in the extraction process.  The ingredients include Salicyclic acid to exfoliate, honey extract to hydrate and Spiraea Ulmaria extract to calm and soothe. Skin is left clear with a radiant complexion.

Hydrafacial fuse and protect

Step 3) Fuse and protect by saturating the surface of the skin with antioxidants and peptides to optimise skin health and restore a natural glow.

Antiox+ is used in the last step of the Signature Hydrafacial. It contains deeply moisturising Hyaluronic acid, often referred to as “Liquid Gold”. Antiox+ has soothing elements from Arnica Flower extract and also skin renewing and brightening elements from Miehei Mucor and Red Algae extract to help even skin tone.

This powerful formula naturally detoxifies and protects the skin from environmental free radicals, while replenishing the skins natural hydration and elasticity, revealing a healthy glow.

What are the benefits of Hydrafacial?


No downtime required

In around thirty minutes of treatment time, Hydrafacial can provide you with a clearer and more radiant skin with virtually no irritation and no downtime.  you can go back to work the same day.  You may have some slight redness after the procedure, however, this resolves quickly and makeup may be applied after the treatment.

Hydrafacial is good for sensitive skin

Hydrafacial is great is sensitive skin. Extractions are performed by using vacuum power rather than manual squeezing or lancing of the skin, which means people with sensitive skin can have a deep clean without the inflammation.  No matter what your skin type, Hydrafacial can work for you. Hydrafacial treatments are adaptable to your skin type and condition. 

Pain-free procedure

Because the liquid is delivered to the skin with every pass of the wand, the tip will be lubricated and glide gently over the skin.  patients often describe the experience as a gentle massage which is enjoyable and relaxing.  Because gentle acids are used during the exfoliation process, patients sometimes experience a slight tingling sensation to the skin.

Younger looking, glowing and healthier skin

Expect to go home from your Hydrafacial with a brighter complexion and glowing skin. If you had any blackheads before the treatment they will have vanished without a trace.  You will also notice that any pores and fine lines have been noticeably diminished.

Hydrafacial can be used to address a number of skin concerns, including;

enlarged pore, brown spots, fine lines and wrinkles, skin texture, elasticity and firmness, oily and congested skin

Infusing essential vitamins, moisture and antioxidants into your skin will help to combat early signs of ageing as well as to help your skin be protected from environmental pollution and free radicals.

Hydrafacial produces consistent results
