Hydrabrasion is a dynamic process combining cleansing, exfoliating, washing and diamonds to give your skin the star treatment it deserves. Not to be confused with traditional microdermabrasion, this process is much gentler on the skin and much less irritating, particularly those with sensitive skin.
New technology advances have allowed us to treat a range of skin concerns from acne and blocked pores to fine lines, wrinkles and even dull or lifeless skin. Basically anyone wanting a quick skin refresh, this rejuvenating treatment will suit them perfectly.
Hydrabrasion utilises an exclusive Minivac system with a diamond tip of adjustable strength to customise the exfoliation of your skin to a suitable level without damaging the surface in the way of traditional exfoliants and peels. The process is two-tiered with the first step involving exfoliation and vacuuming of dead skin and pore blockages to slough off the top layers of the epidermis. The second step involves washing off the skin using the same Minivac system to cleanse out the pores with water and remove any impurities. The skin is left squeaky clean and fresh with little to no discomfort and minimal downtime.
There is some redness experienced afterwards and it’s best to leave the skin clean afterwards so we recommend having this treatment done after work or on weekends to allow your skin to breathe after such a deep clean! Treatments can be carried out as often as every two weeks, and regular treatments are recommended to keep your skin in optimal condition, however you will see a dramatic difference to your skin immediately after your first treatment. You may notice some redness post treatment, but this rarely lasts more than 24 hours.
While this treatment is perfect for more sensitive and dry skin types who are unable to tolerate microdermabrasion, we recommend not using any makeup or active serums immediately post treatment in order to allow your skin to settle.
You may experience a little photo-sensitivity also so it’s always best to avoid direct sunlight, as with most of our other skin treatments! For the cost of a normal facial, hydrabrasion is well worth every cent for maximum results.
We particularly love this treatment as it means you are not exposing your skin to any harsh chemicals that are likely to strip your skin of it’s natural oils or mess with pH levels. So if are at all unsure about what is involved in all those products used during facials, this is the perfect treatment to play it safe but still achieve maximum effect. Book in today to see if Hydrabrasion is the perfect facial treatment for you.
