HydraFacial is THE hot celebrity-favourite facial for Red Carpet ready skin. This seriously special facial leaves skin super clean, smooth, hydrated, plumped and glowing.
What is HydraFacial?
The HydraFacial is different from any other facial that you may have experienced. It is a clinically proven treatment that is designed to work in the skin, rather than just on the skin to produce instantly visible results that last.
Combining 6 highly effective treatments in one, HydraFacial can be used to treat and diminish a variety of skin imperfections such as:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sun damage
- Dry skin
- Congested pores
- Oily or acne prone skin
- Age spots
What happens during a HydraFacial Treatment?
- Step 1: Lymphatic Drainage
Stimulation of the lymphatic nodes in the face improves the drainage of lymph in the area, reducing puffiness and enabling new fresh interstitial fluid to bathe the cells.
- Step 2: Cleansing and Exfoliation
The HydroPeel tip uses its multiple abrasive edges to exfoliate the skin several times with each pass to achieve better, more even skin resurfacing without irritation. Simultaneously the unique spiral design combined with the vacuum suction enables botanical cleansers and glucosamine to be "vortex infused" into the skin.
- Step 3: Glycolic and salicylic Acid delivery
A tailored blend of glycolic and salicylic acid is then delivered into the skin. This softens sebum, stimulates collagen and brightens the skin with only a mild tingle and no peeling and scaling
- Step 4: Extraction
The vortex (powerful circulation of liquid) effect easily dislodges and removes blackheads, whiteheads, and sebum for quick and painless extractions.
- Step 5: Hydration
The unique spiral tip employs a patented method for infusing hydrating skin solutions, potent antioxidants and Hyaluronic Acid into the skin, improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, oily skin, and hyperpigmentation.
- Step 6: LED Light Therapy
The LED light therapy uses Red and Infra Red Light, which give off energy that stimulates your cells, thereby increasing your skin's production of collagen and elastin or Blue light which targets Acne and soothes and heals the skin.
Hydrafacial is a medical grade treatment which gives intensive results by working much deeper in the skin than a traditional facial treatment. Due to this, your skin may experience temporary irritation, tightness, redness or slight swelling which usually dissipates within 72 hours depending on skin sensitivity. More severe cases may include soreness, small blistering or white spots which usually disappear within 3-5 days.
Most clients experience no adverse effects, but please bear in mind it is a possibility and so leave plenty of time (7-10 days minimum) when having this treatment before a special occasion.
The results from just one HydraFacial treatment can be immediately visible, with an instant subtle improvement in appearance, texture and hydration.

Repeat treatments will achieve even more dramatic and longer lasting results and more importantly an overall improvement in skin health.
Your therapist will tailor the treatment to address specific concerns which may include general signs of ageing, pigmentation, texture and tone or acne.
