HydraFacial is performed every 15 seconds around the world: approximately 2 million treatments were given globally in 2017 alone.
It's a medical-grade hydradermabrasion device that carries out a patented three-part regimen — cleansing, exfoliating, and then infusing skin with customisable (personalised) intensive serums.
Rather than blasting the skin with grit, à la traditional dermabrasion, this gentler approach vacuums out pores while simultaneously pushing in potent actives, which moisturize, brighten, plump, and protect. The machine's handpiece holds patented spiralized treatment tips equipped with "vortex technology" — the whirling force that both giveth and taketh away.
It offers excellent results in teenagers with acne, adults with pimples, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. It’s also great for older patients with sun damaged skin.
It should be avoided in patients with active rashes, sunburns, or rosacea, and in pregnant women.
HydraFacial combines no-downtime treatment with virtually immediate results. It can quickly improve texture and tone, and even help conditions like acne, without any residual irritation or peeling.
HydraFacial can be done the very same day as injectables and non-ablative light and laser treatments.
At a little extra cost, basic HydraFacial treatments can be personalised. Your doctor or aesthetician can choose from three different strength glycolic-salicylic acid peels based on your previous experience with peels, your skin type, and your desired outcome. It can also be combined with short rounds of LED light therapy following the facial, to build collagen and calm the skin.
