How does HydraFacial™ work?
Targeted solution protocols
HydraFacial™ has six targeted problem-solution protocols, developed to help mitigate some of the most universal skin concerns.
Skin Health for Life uses super-serums filled with antioxidants, peptides and hyaluronic acid to boost hydration and protect skin from environmental damage, leaving it recharged, renewed, and invigorated.
HydraFacial Express is designed for anyone with a busy lifestyle but still wants all the key benefits of HydraFacial.
Anti-Ageing with DermaBuilder multi-peptide anti-ageing serum, which helps to improve your skin’s elasticity and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Pigmentation Reduction with Britenol – the skin-brightening treatment featuring Britenol Vortex-Booster™, it is clinically proven to minimise the appearance of brown spots, target dark spots and sun damaged areas, and leave your skin glowing with a more even complexion.
Acne and Congested Skin helps to improve active acne by reducing the build-up of excess oils and to improve scarring by deeper exfoliation with the use of natural salicylic acid and different strengths of GlySal skin peel.
Rosacea treatment uses super-serums filled with antioxidants, peptides and hyaluronic acid to boost hydration and protect your skin from environmental damage, leaving it recharged, renewed, and invigorated.
These protocols use a combination of procedures to to achieve best results for each skin concern, including detox, cleansing and exfoliation, brightening agents, extraction, hydration and rejuvenation procedures.
Detox – lymphatic drainage helps to increase circulation of the lymphatic system; this increases blood flow to the area, bringing oxygen to support the cells and fresh clean lymph to restore hydration, tone and firm the skin, and eliminate toxins.
Cleansing and exfoliation – gently exfoliating dead skin cells reveals healthy, new skin, while delivering a serum containing lactic acid, glucosamine and many botanical extracts deeply cleanses and nourishes your skin.
Brightening agent – this gentle glycolic and salicylic solution helps loosen debris from your pores, ready for the extraction stage, and brightens the appearance of your skin.
Extraction – effortless extractions help to remove blackheads and draw out impurities in congested areas, using a serum of natural salicylic acid and honey extract.
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 your skin, leaving it hydrated, plumped up and in optimum health.
Rejuvenation – red and infrared LED light reduces redness and stimulates collagen; the light also supports the natural production of vitamin D, leaving your skin glowing.
DermaBuilder targeted anti-ageing serum – the patented DermaBuilder serum, applied into deep lines and wrinkles using a twist and a kiss method, helps to improve their appearance and plump up the skin straight away, while stimulating collagen for long-term effects.
Britenol Boost – the Britenol serum helps to effectively diminish the appearance of dark spots and improve overall skin discolouration, for a more radiant, even tone.
Glysal Acne Peel – different strengths of Glysal Peel not only help improve acne and acne scarring, but they also regulate oil levels caused by excess sebum and reduce skin discolouration or uneven tone.
Continual care – we may also recommend skincare products for use at home, to help maintain the benefits of your treatment, such as AntiOx, Beta HD, Pur Moist, Britenol Intensive Spot Corrector, DermaBuilder home care serum and SPF of at least 30.
You may decide on one or more of the protocols, or we can further tailor a treatment plan for your unique needs.
Frequently asked questions
What happens during the procedure?
At the start of the procedure, we use a specially-designed hand piece containing HydroPeel tips to exfoliate your skin, removing dead skin cells and impurities.
We pass the tip over your skin several times to get even results and to reveal the healthy new skin underneath.
Depending on your skin condition and the treatment plan we have agreed with you, we may then use a glycolic and salicylic acid peel.
The next stage is an infusion of antioxidants and hyaluronic acid (the naturally-occurring substance used in dermal fillers) to hydrate, nourish and protect your skin from environmental damage. The blend of serums we use will be one specifically chosen for your skin condition.
Finally, we will shine red LED lights on to your skin. This helps to improve circulation, reduce redness and irritation, and stimulate the production collagen and elastin.
If we are treating acne-prone skin, we also use blue LED lights that help to help fight bacteria.
The procedure may take from 30 or 40 minutes up to an hour, depending on the treatment plan you have chosen.
Is HydraFacial™ treatment painful?
HydraFacial™ should not be painful or uncomfortable.
At most, you will feel a slight sensation as the HydraFacial™ tool moves across your skin, which you may actually find quite soothing.
