HydraFacial™ comes from the USA. This skin care technology is extremely popular in its home country, and it is now taking over the whole world. The USA’s leading professional beauty magazine, Les Nouvelles Esthétiques & Spa, has named it the best skin care technology for several years in a row, and in 2015, it received the same recognition by the New Beauty magazine.

What is the HydraFacial™ treatment?

HydraFacial™ is the only skin care method on the market that uses a device to simultaneously cleanse, exfoliate, remove blackheads and whiteheads, and infuse the skin deeply with active ingredients. The device’s effective vacuum removes the makeup accumulated in the skin, skin secretions, dirt, harmful microbes and extra treatment fluids into a separate waste container. More effects can be added to the basic cleansing and moisturising treatment with different treatment heads and cartridges.

A HydraFacial™ can be combined with treatments such as a GlySal™ acid peel or a DermaBuilder™ -anti-age peptide solution infusion that smooths out lines like botulin, just painlessly and without injections. After the treatment, the skin feels clean, soft and moisturised.

What kind of skin types is HydraFacial™ suitable for?

HydraFacial™ is suitable for all types of skin, including dry or sensitive skin. However, the treatment is not recommended for burnt skin or eczema and psoriasis patients.

For whom HydraFacial™ treatment is not recommended?

HydraFacial™ treatments are not recommended for pregnant women, and intensive ampoule treatments are not recommended for breastfeeding women or customers who have taken a course of acne medication in the last 12 months.

How long does the HydraFacial™ treatment take?

The basic cleansing and moisturising treatment takes approximately 25 minutes. When additional options are included, the treatment takes approx. 5–20 minutes longer depending on the type of treatment.

 

What happens in the HydraFacial™ facial?

In the HydraFacial™ treatment, the patented HydroPeel® treatment head is used to moisturise, soften and cleanse the skin. A serum that softens the sebum and deep cleanses the skin gently is used in the cleansing. Glucosamine and lactic acid are used as the exfoliating ingredients of the serum, which also includes yeast extract and seaweed extract as skin pampering ingredients. Combined with the HydroPeel® heads, this serum exfoliates the skin effectively. The excellent exfoliating properties of HydroPeel® heads is based on their patented spiral shape; the multiple grooves in the spiral exfoliate the skin effectively and painlessly with every motion.

After cleansing and exfoliation comes the vortex pore cleansing phase, in which blackheads and whiteheads are emptied without a comedone extractor and the related unpleasant sensations. At this point, a serum containing salicylic acid developed for this stage of the facial is used as the active solution. Salicylic acid deeply cleanses the skin while also loosening up the dry and dead skin cells. After the cleansing, exfoliating and vortex pore cleansing phases are complete, the active ingredient infusion phase begins.

In the infusion phase an antioxidant serum in the form of an extremely moisturising solution is used. The Antiox serum contains plenty of antioxidants as well as hyaluronic acid. The substances are absorbed very effectively deep inside the skin thanks to the vortex created by the HydroPeel® head and the small size of the substances’ molecules.

What makes HydraFacial™ unique?

HydraFacial™ is unique thanks to its patented technology. It makes HydraFacial™ the only method that can simultaneously cleanse and exfoliate the skin, remove blackheads and whiteheads from the pores, and infuse active ingredients into the skin in a form that makes them easy for the skin to absorb. The nourishing substances also remain active in the skin for several days after the treatment, which further improves the results of the HydraFacial™ treatment.

The secret of HydraFacial™ is in its large patented HydroPeel™ treatment heads; their spiral shape makes effective cleansing and exfoliation, removal of debris from the pores and infusion of active ingredients possible. The spiral shape creates a vortex on the skin out of the nourishing concentrates, and combined with the abrasive edges of the spirals, the vortex exfoliates the skin effectively and painlessly. The same vortex makes it possible to infuse active ingredients into the skin effectively while allowing them to remain in the skin for several days after the treatment.

How does the treatment feel?

The treatment feels pleasant, and usually it does not cause pain or unpleasant sensations. Even the “squeezing” traditionally done with a comedone extractor is painless in the HydraFacial™ treatment thanks to its vortex cleansing.

What kinds of skin issues can be treated with HydraFacial™?

  • Changes in the skin caused by the sun; skin pigmentation issues; uneven skin colour
  • Fine lines and wrinkles; dry skin
  • Lack of clarity/elasticity/firmness of the skin
  • Greasy skin and acne; clogged and enlarged pores (very typical in young people and men)

Is the HydraFacial™ treatment safe?

Only ingredients that have been proven safe are used in the HydraFacial™ treatment. Thanks to the solutions, the spiral treatment head and the vortex, the exfoliation is both safe and effective. After the treatment, you can continue your everyday life immediately. The treatment is hygienic, because the HydroPeel® treatment heads are disposable and replaced after each customer.

When will the treatment results be visible?

The results are immediately visible, but because the active ingredients remain effective on the skin for several days after the treatment, the best results will appear after a few days.

What should you do or keep in mind after the treatment?

Because fruit acids are used in the treatment, you must avoid direct sunlight after the treatment and use a sunscreen with a protection factor of at least SPF 30. The best result is achieved by regular HydraFacial treatments and actively using home facial care products that suit your skin type.

What kind of skin reactions are normal after the HydraFacial™ treatment?

Even though HydraFacial™ is not actually a chemical peel, chemical peeling agents, AHA and BHA, are used in the HydraFacial™ treatment. Usually, the skin does not react to the amount of acid in HydraFacial, but it is possible that in extremely rare cases, very sensitive skin may be tender to the touch, show redness, become brownish on the surface, sting/tingle/prickle/itch, peel even heavily or become swollen, and care products may sting on the skin. However, these symptoms are temporary, and you do not need to worry. Carefully moisturising the skin will make the symptoms disappear in a few days.
