HydraFacial™ is a breakthrough treatment that uses innovative technology to improve overall skin health. It is perfect to revitalise your skin, just in time for your next event to give you that youthful glow. Your skin will feel pampered after just one treatment.
What are the benefits of Hydrafacial?
The HydraFacial treatment is highly effective at improving overall skin health and hydration. The treatment is customised to address your specific skin concerns. It helps to improve: fine lines & wrinkles, elasticity & firmness, skin tone radiance, skin texture, hyperpigmentation, oily & congested skin, acne, enlarged pores, and signs of aging. Your skin is most beautiful when it’s healthy. The HydraFacial restores your skin to its healthiest state and maintains it there.
Is this like microdermabrasion?
No. Microdermabrasion mechanically removes the outer layer of dead skin cells. HydraFacial does this but in a much more gentle manner due to the patented Vortex-Fusion technology. In addition it does much more including: clean and extract pores, stimulate skin cell regeneration with a custom chemical peel, infuse anti-oxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid to hydrate the skin. Compared to microdermabrasion, HydraFacial is newer technology that is more gentle and gives superior results.
Who is it suitable for? How safe is it?
The HydraFacial treatment is suitable for almost all ages and all skin types including sensitive skin. The treatment is non-invasive and non-surgical. There is minimal discomfort and no downtime. Make-up can be applied immediately after the procedure.
What is the procedure?
The treatment involves gliding a handpiece over the skin that utilises Vortex-Fusion technology. By using combination of different spiral tips, suctions, and serum infusions a sequence of treatment takes place to revitalise your skin and target specific concerns. This includes: exfoliation of dead skin, a mild chemical peel, extraction of pores for deep cleaning, and infusion of antioxidants, peptides and hyaluronic acid. All of this happens in the same appointment. The procedure takes around 40 minutes. To address specific concerns, we can incorporate customised treatments within the HydraFacial that may improve: lymphatic drainage, treat fine lines, improve circulation, treat pigmentation and acne control.
Does everybody get the same treatment?
HydraFacial treatment is fully customised to the client’s skin. There are many parameters that we control such as: Vortex power, and infusion flow rate. We can even target specific areas of concern including: PIGMENTATION to brighten your skin, LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE to improve circulation and hayfever, ACNE control, and FINE LINES. For best results, see our highly trained and experienced staff at Iconic Medispa – not all clinics are the same.
How many treatments are needed?
The skin feels better after each HydraFacial. Often, there is visible improvement and radiant skin tone after just one treatment. The HydraFacial is an active treatment for both improving and maintaining your skin. One treatment per month is recommended to maintain optimal skin health. The HydraFacial is typically used in combination with other skin procedures to maximise overall results.
HydraFacial: A Closer Look At What To Expect During The Procedure
HydraFacial is a revolutionary treatment ideal for persons of all skin types. It is a non-ablative, non-invasive treatment that has proven effective in generally improving skin health and addressing specific concerns such as hyperpigmentation, acne, oily skin, sun damage and wrinkles.
HydraFacial combines several proven techniques simultaneously, delivering through patented Vortex technology for radiant and youthful skin. The practitioner will change the tip of the hand-piece depending on the step, but it generally feels very gentle, much like just a cool paintbrush gently and softly moving over the surface of the skin.
Here is a deeper look at this 4-step, non-laser skin care treatment.
Exfoliation and Cleansing
The HydraFacial treatment starts with exfoliation which removes the outer dead skin layers and cleanses the dirt and sebum that accumulate on the skin. This reveals new and healthy layers of the skin.
After exfoliating and cleansing, the Vortex infuses into the skin a mild acid peel to help loosen dirt, sebum and any lodged debris from the pores. This also stimulates formation of new skin.
The next step is the extraction of all these loosened dirt and sebum from the pores through Vortex suction. The spiral design of the vortex makes the process very gentle and quite comfortable.
The final step is hydration or vortex-fusion. A serum made of a combination of antioxidants, hyaluronic acid and peptides is infused into the skin that nourishes the skin and help in protecting the skin from harmful free radicals.
HydraFacial treatments follow this 4-step procedure, which are all done within the same appointment and take an average of up to 40 minutes. It is important to note that the treatment can be tailored or customized to address specific concerns for even better results.
Additional steps can be included to target: acne, pigmentation, fine lines, and lymphatic drainage. HydraFacial can also be used with other treatments to improve their results.
