Everything you need to know about the HydraFacial

When it comes to improving skin health, the HydraFacial Elite is a science backed, high-tech treatment that can leave your skin glowing after just one session. Quickly becoming the most popular beauty treatment on the market, the HydraFacial can treat a range of skin concerns. Our clinic in Marylebone, London offers the HydraFacial Elite to patients wanting to restore, rejuvenate and brighten their skin.

 

So, what is the HydraFacial?

The Hydrafacial is a hand-held hydradermabrasion device that acts like a vacuum, sucking up all the dirt, grime and excess oil from deep within your pores. It also removes any dead skin cells that are lurking on the surface of your skin. All of this is collected into tubes that show just how much-unwanted debris are in your skin.

At the same time, the HydraFacial drives bespoke serums and acids into the deep layers of skin, chosen by our team depending on your skin type and concerns.

The concoction of active skincare ingredients available includes many popular skincare goodies, like Hyaluronic Acid – the perfect ingredient for hydration and Salicylic Acid – for oil control and acne.

And the best part? The HydraFacial is suitable for all skin types!

 

What are the benefits of the HydraFacial?

Promoting amazing results, the HydraFacial is able to treat a range of skin concerns. The treatment is perfect for those experiencing:

1 – Dry skin: Hyaluronic acid, peptides and antioxidants penetrate the skin during a HydraFacial treatment to leave your skin feeling smooth and hydrated.

2 – Acne: If you have mild acne, HydraFacial is a very effective treatment. We will advise you of the best treatment course for your type of acne. This treatment will help to improve the appearance of acne and acne scarring and regulate oil levels caused by excess sebum.

HydraFacial’s patented technology follows a six-step treatment process – Detox, Cleanse and Exfoliation, Brightening, Extraction, Hydration and finally Rejuvenation.

Step 1 – Detox: A specially formulated lymphatic drainage technique helps increase circulation, eliminating toxins.
