What Is HydraFacial?
The HydraFacial treatment works in three easy steps to help cleanse and rejuvenate the skin and target often difficult-to-treat skin issues including acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles.
Step 1 – Cleanse
Most effective skin treatments usually include the cleansing of the skin. Every day our skin comes into contact with pollutants and acne-causing bacteria that can congest the skin and increase its dull appearance. Throughout the day, oil and sebum are expelled through our pores and build up on the upper layers of the skin. Although natural, overstimulation of sebum without cleansing is one of the root causes of multiple skin conditions, including pimples and acne.
The HydraFacial lightly exfoliates the upper layers of the dermis which helps remove dead skin cells, unblock pores and reduce the appearance of congested skin. Just by cleansing alone, the skin appears fresher and cleaner.
Step 2 – Hydrate
One of the HydraFacial’s biggest benefits is its hydrating properties. HydraFacial serums packed with hyaluronic acid are introduced into the skin to deeply hydrate the upper layers of the dermis. These serums offer long-lasting hydration and leave the skin feeling smooth, plump, and moisturized.
When the skin is moisturized, it can reduce the likelihood of other skin problems occurring, including blemishes, dryness, and redness. Hydrating the skin also helps to prevent the formation of wrinkles and can help reduce fine lines on the face. It’s really a win-win!
Step 3 – Infuse and Protect
Once the skin goes through a deep cleansing and hydration process, the HydraFacial unleashes its most powerful tool: the serums. The booster serums are packed with skin-nourishing ingredients and antioxidants that help treat an array of skin issues and protect the skin.
These serums can be customized based on the needs of the client. Certain ingredients in serums, including salicylic and glycolic acids, can help diminish acne and reduce the appearance of acne scarring. These acids are also great at evening skin tone and cleaning our congested skin, which is often the root cause of the production of acne.
Other serums help stimulate collagen production, which reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. By stimulating collagen, the serums improve the skin’s elasticity and smoothness, which ultimately leads to a more youthful appearance.

The HydraFacial offers a range of benefits for anyone using it. The treatment encourages the stimulation of collagen, which in turn, can improve the appearance of healthy skin. Other benefits of undergoing this procedure include:

When Will I See Results?
HydraFacial treatments are effective at reducing the signs of skin issues including acne, hyperpigmentation, and the early skin indications of aging.
So, after your first visit to our clinic, you’ll notice visible results almost instantly. In fact, results are usually apparent just 15 minutes after the session has finished.
How Long Do Results Last?
On average, the HydraFacial treatment provides patients with results for between 5 and 7 days.
Moisturizing the skin, staying hydrated, and using SPF every day can help results last longer.
For optimal results, we recommend our clients to repeat the treatment every few weeks, or when they notice the skin losing its glow.
Is This Treatment For Me?
Fortunately, the HydraFacial treatment is suitable for all skin types.
Sensitive skin sufferers can undergo this advanced treatment without worrying about irritation, redness, or soreness after the procedure.
If you’re looking for a youthful appearance by undergoing a quick, non-invasive procedure that promises long-lasting results, then the HydraFacial may be the treatment for you.
Many people will do anything to achieve flawless skin and improve their overall skin health quickly and effectively. However, now more than ever, people are turned off by invasive treatments such as surgery to achieve desired results.
So, if you’re hoping to improve the appearance of your skin without an invasive procedure, then the HydraFacial treatment may be the best for you.
Who Shouldn’t Use the HydraFacial Treatment
As mentioned previously, the HydraFacial is suitable for all skin types.
However, those suffering from certain skin conditions should not undergo this treatment. Those suffering from the following skin problems should consult a medical professional before undergoing treatment:
- Active rash – an active rash can be irritated and worsened during treatment. Patients with a rash should wait for it to completely subside before undergoing any skin treatment.
- Sunburn – when burnt, the skin’s natural layer of protection is compromised. Therefore, the skin should be allowed to heal before treatment is performed. Depending on the severity of the burn, patients should wait at least 1-2 weeks before undergoing treatment.
- Rosacea – rosacea causes the flushing and blushing of the skin and causes the skin’s vessels to become redder and more obvious. Sufferers of this skin condition should avoid the HydraFacial and most other treatments performed on the skin as it can cause irritation and even worsen the condition.
Skin conditions such as these can be significantly irritated by any cosmetic treatment, especially when performed on the face. Before your first session, one of our licensed estheticians can assess your specific skin needs and determine the best treatment plan moving forward.
It’s important to note that pregnant women are advised against using this treatment. Ingredients typically found in the booster serums including salicylic acid have not been tested for use in pregnant women and should therefore not be used until more research is done.
Areas That the HydraFacial Can Treat
Areas of the body where the HydraFacial can be used include:
- Upper chest.
What to Expect During Treatment
The treatment usually takes just under an hour to perform.
During your session, one of our estheticians will cleanse and exfoliate the face before moving the handheld device across the desired treatment area of the skin to release the serums into the skin.
This is a completely pain-free process and many of our patients find they can read, listen to music or even fall asleep during the procedure!
What to Do after Treatment
Once the treatment has been carried out, it’s recommended to avoid direct sunlight for a few days. The skin may be a little sensitive straight after treatment as the exfoliation process removes dead skin cells from the treatment area. Therefore, using suntan lotion with an SPF of 50 or more is highly recommended.
Not only is it important to keep the skin hydrated straight after treatment, but in life in general. Staying hydrated by drinking plenty of water and using moisturizer to keep the skin moisturized is essential.
Is There Any Downtime?
Treatments that promise noticeable results quickly often follow some downtime.
However, the HydraFacial requires virtually no downtime. The facial may lead to some redness immediately after the appointment, however, the treatment uses non-irritating antioxidants and ingredients, so any redness is minimal and very much temporary.
Therefore, you can get on with daily life straight away without having to take any time off work or miss out on any events or plans.
