The facial treatment is multi-faceted, with each process targeting a different skin concern. "The HydraFacial is performed as a multi-step treatment with the use of four different products throughout the process," Scott explains. "First, there is a deep cleanse and exfoliation to remove dead skin cells which include Salicylic and Glycolic acid to prepare the pores. This is followed by a painless extraction of blackheads and whiteheads and the final step offers rehydration where hyaluronic, peptides and an infusion of antioxidants and essential nutrients is suctioned back into the skin for better penetration."
Note, it's nothing like a day spa - so don't expect calming music accompanied by a 5-minute nap. Instead, the HydraFacial device is a huge machine with various attachments that gives off a "scratching" like feeling, while also buzzing and whizzing as it works its magic.
Personally, my skin has never been particularly acne-prone but I have significant whiteheads on my forehead that left my skin texture uneven. Days after the HydraFacial, the whiteheads that had been bothering me for years were significantly decreased. Just think of the facial as an intensive, deep clean for your pores.
And don't be deterred by the look of the machine or process, it's suitable for all skin types (even those with sensitive and reactive skin), with the whole treatment taking around 30 minutes. Scott assures, "Hydrafacial’s are suitable for all skin types especially those that have congestion, dead skin build-up or those looking for a deep exfoliation post-holiday or change in season and for those looking for overall brighten up pre-event."
The best bit? There's no downtime and it's totally pain-free.
