Hydrafacial- The Award Winning Anti Ageing Treatment For Beautiful, Healthy Skin

Hydrafacial- The Award Winning Anti Ageing Treatment For Beautiful, Healthy Skin

HydraFacial is a medical-grade facial rejuvenation that cleanses, detoxifies, exfoliates, extracts and hydrates in one treatment that is appropriate for all skin types — normal, oily, sensitive, aging.

It also helps with fine line and wrinkles, pore size, and hyperpigmentation.

How Does A Hydrafacial Work?

The Hydrafacial is a machine with a handheld device that uses four different HydroPeel tips and various skin care solutions (chemical exfoliants, antioxidants, and hydrating serums like hyaluronic acid) to achieve its results.

The spiral design of the tips used in conjunction with the HydraFacial vacuum technology creates a vortex effect to easily dislodge and remove impurities while simultaneously introducing solutions that exfoliate, hydrate and infuse your skin with antioxidants.

A Hydrafacial in Four Steps


Hydrafacial start with a quick manual cleanse, followed by the Vortex Fusion treatment with Activ4. This combines exfoliating lactic acid and glucosamine HCI which softens and conditions skin.

Deeper Exfoliation

To give the skin a deeper exfoliation, two different tips are available — one more aggressive than the other — delivering one of three different levels of glycolic acid (7.5%, 15% or 30%) combined with 1.5% – 2% salicylic acid. The combination of physical exfoliation from the tip and chemical exfoliation from the peels gives a good result quickly, without the wait and tingling that you might experience with a traditional peel.


This step utilizes a different tip to soften sebum with salicylic acid and suck away blackheads and sebum in open pores. At the same time, honey extract hydrates and spiraea ulmaria flower extract calms and soothes.


Your cleansed, extracted, exfoliated skin is now ready for an infusion of antioxidants (horse chestnut seed and green tea extracts), peptides and hyaluronic acid, which actually attracts water to the skin and helps keep it hydrated and plump.

The proprietary blend called Antiox also has arnica flower extract to calm and soothe the skin, and red algae extract to brighten the skin.

It appeals to nearly all ages, complexions, and concerns

This is nice for teenagers with acne; adults with pimples, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation; and for older patients with sun damage.

This is a great treatment for brides or anyone who wants to look refreshed and hydrated for a night out.

It is fantastic for people with acne, in part because the extractions don’t use pressure that disturbs the skin.

It’s a good anti-aging treatment because of the peels and antioxidants

And it has zero downtime.
