What is HydraFacial?
HydraFacial’s philosophy is “Skin Health for Life” and this is why the treatment has become a favourite with celebrities and beauty editors alike.
HydraFacial is not just about improving the appearance of your skin, but truly restoring it to a more youthful and healthy condition.
It uses advanced, patented vortex technology to deliver botanical ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, horse chestnut seed extract, red algae extract, copper zinc and magnesium peptides into the skin.
It is also packed full of powerful antioxidants, which work to counteract the damage of free radicals caused by pollution, sun and stress, which can damage the skin, accelerating the ageing process.
What does the HydraFacial treatment involve?
The main HydraFacial treatment consists of a six-stage process, which helps to detoxify the skin, remove dead skin cells, extract any debris and provide long-lasting hydration and essential nutrient support that protects and rebuilds collagen levels.
Treatments can also be tailored to treat any specific skin concerns you may have.
Step 1: Detox
The HydraFacial begins with lymphatic drainage to increase circulation, increase blood flow to the skin and eliminate toxins. The action of the lymphatic drainage brings fresh oxygen to the skin to support the cells at the same time as helping to restore hydration and toning and firming the skin.
Step 2: Cleansing and exfoliation
Gentle exfoliation helps to remove dead skin cells that can make the complexion appear dull and can cause blocked pores and break outs. Not only is new, healthy skin revealed but at the hydradermabrasion technique used in HydraFacial means that at the same time as exfoliating a special serum containing lactic acid, glucosamine and botanical extracts is delivered for deep cleansing and nourishing.
Step 3: Brightening
A gentle solution of glycolic acid and salicylic acid brightens the skin and helps loosen debris from the pores in preparation for the extraction stage.
Step 4: Extraction
Blackheads are effortlessly removed and impurities are drawn out to decongest the skin while a serum containing natural salicylic acid and honey extract is infused.
Step 5: Hydration
As the name suggests, HydraFacial is all about hydration and its unique Vortex-Fusion technology delivers a powerful cocktail of hyaluronic acid, antioxidants and peptides to hydrate and replenish the skin leaving it plumped and restoring optimum skin health.
Step 6: Rejuvenation
The final step sees rejuvenating red and blue light used to reduce redness and stimulate collagen. The light therapy also helps support the natural protection of vitamin D, something many of us are deficient in. The result: your skin will have a healthy and radiant glow.
