The summer sun is finally here, which means it’s time to break out the sunscreen and enjoy the outdoors. However, before you do, there are a few things to keep in mind. After the winter months of being indoors with the heater on, our skin most likely feels dull and tired and in need of a pick me up. It may require a treatment that gently exfoliates away the old skin cells, unblocks pores and nourishes the skin back to life so it is refreshed and ready for summer.
If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to get your skin summer-ready, look no further than the HydraFacial.
This popular skin rejuvenation treatment is perfect for anyone who wants to achieve healthy, glowing skin. Keep reading to learn everything you need to know about the HydraFacial, including what it is, how it works, and what benefits it can provide.
What is a HydraFacial?
A HydraFacial is a medical-grade skin treatment. The treatment starts with a light acid peel to soften the top layers of skin. The gentle vacuum suction device then cleanses and removes dead skin cells, debris, and other impurities from the surface of the skin.
At the same time, a special serum is used to infuse the skin with hyaluronic acid and antioxidants. These ingredients help to hydrate the skin, nourish and protect it from environmental stressors such as UV rays and pollution. The serums infused during treatment increase the uptake of antioxidants faster and more effectively than daily application of creams at home.
The result is clean, refreshed, and radiant skin that feels smooth and soft. Plus, because the HydraFacial therapy is non-invasive, there is no downtime required afterwards. You can have a HydraFacial on your lunch break and return to work with minimal skin irritation.

How does HydraFacial Work?
HydraFacial therapy is painless and combines the benefits of a hydradermabrasion, exfoliation, and mild chemical peel. It is suitable for any age and ethnicity and is used to maintain long term skin health and vitality. For younger skin it improves skin clarity, while for mature skin it revitalises tired and dull skin. HydraFacial works similar to another mildly abrasive treatment called microdermabrasion, but with a difference. It includes booster serums to hydrate and protect the skin.
Firstly, the HydraFacial mildly abrasive suction tip gently moves across your skin to collect all the dead skin cells, sebum, impurities, makeup and dirt that builds up. This creates a cleanse and peel effect.
As the vacuum tip removes any build in the pores a topical moisturiser is delivered at the same time, creating an extraction and hydration effect. The skin is now primed and ready to absorb the goodness of the nutrition in the next steps.
In the final stage, booster serums deliver antioxidants and hyaluronic acid peptide-rich serums into the skin to infuse and protect it. Special serums can be customised to suit your skin’s needs which may include reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, dull skin, or enlarged pores.
Be ready for an instant brightening and firming of your skin. HydraFacials are ideal if you have an event on and need to give your skin an instant reboot. To keep your skin in great shape it’s recommended to have a treatment every 4-6 weeks.
