Heard of a Hydrafacial but not sure what exactly it is? Let’s delve into the details and tell you about them!
A HydraFacial uses unique, non-invasive skin surfacing technology which restores your skin to a youthful and healthy appearance.
The treatment is done in 6 stages, these are;
STEP 1 – DETOX
Lymphatic drainage helps to increase circulation of the lymphatic system. This increases blood flow to the area, bringing oxygen to support the cells whilst also bringing fresh clean lymph to restore hydration, tone and firm the skin, and eliminate toxins.
STEP 2 – CLEANSING AND EXFOLIATION
Dead skin cells are gently exfoliated to reveal healthy, new skin whilst, simultaneously, a serum containing lactic acid, glucosamine and many botanical extracts is delivered deeply to cleanse and nourish the skin.
STEP 3 – BRIGHTENING AGENT
This gentle glycolic and salicylic solution helps loosen debris from your pores ready for the extraction stage whilst brightening the appearance of the skin.
STEP 4 – EXTRACTION
Effortless extractions help to remove blackheads and draw out impurities in congested areas using a serum of natural salicylic acid and honey extract.
STEP 5 – HYDRATION
HydraFacial Vortex-Fusion technology delivers a cocktail of hydrating hyaluronic acid and the most advanced and powerful antioxidants, peptides and multi-peptides to replenish the skin, leaving it hydrated, plumped up and at optimum skin health.
STEP 6 – REJUVENATION
Red and infrared LED light is used to reduce redness and further stimulate collagen. The light also supports the natural production of vitamin D, leaving your skin glowing
The HydraFacial treatment involves no discomfort or downtime and is suitable for all skin types! You can fit a HydraFacial into your lunch hour, or after work and carry on your day as normal afterwards, perfect!
The Hydrafacial can be used with a number of branded products, depending on your skin type. This can include Medik8, Image Skincare and Thalgo!
How does a Hydrafacial work?
The HydraFacial treatment starts by cleansing the skin and removing the dead skin cells and excess sebum from the skin. This is followed by a mix of salicylic and glycolic acid which is applied to the skin to break up the dirt and oil which may be clogging the skin and pores.
The HydraFacial tip is then used to blast fluid onto your face which pushes trapped dirt out of your pores which is then essentially vacuumed up along with blackheads, dirt, oil and impurities.
This is all done while simultaneously hydrating, plumping and nourishing serums are applied to your skin!
