HydraFacial is a specially formulated technology used to achieve deep hydration and correct complexion issues.
Every day we go outside and are exposed to potentially damaging elements such as sun rays, stress, pollution and toxins. Sunlight is the worst element for our skin, and although we need the natural vitamin D for overall health, the other effects of sunlight can wreak significant havoc on our skin, causing pigmentation and a breakdown of cells. This then results in wrinkles and fine lines which make us look older and fatigued.
The factors that cause damage to our body and skin are known as radicals as they are the root cause of skin damage and ageing. One way to combat these radicals is antioxidants, which restore and protect the skin from further damage. Antioxidants are found in vitamins including A and E, as well as plant extracts. White tea, rosemary and horse chestnut seed are all plant extracts which contain antioxidants which contribute towards healthy, beautiful skin.
What benefits does the HydraFacial provide?
The HydraFacial resurfacing procedure thoroughly cares for your skin by cleansing, exfoliating and hydrating your skin. The HydraFacial uses the Vortex-Fusion® process which applies antioxidants, peptides and hyaluronic acid to your skin to rejuvenate your appearance. The HydraFacial is a non-invasive and non-surgical procedure that provides instant results with no downtime required, which means you can get back to your busy schedule.
The specific problems that the HydraFacial can address include:
- Oily skin (and acne)
- Large pores (including black heads)
- Sun damage (age spots and pigmentation)
- Fine lines and wrinkles
Vortex-Fusion® will thoroughly cleanse and rejuvenate your skin
Vortex-Fusion® is the process that is used to treat your skin during the HydraFacial, using the HydroPeel tip applicator. This applicator hydrates the skin with nutrients and antioxidant-rich solutions while deeply cleaning the pores. This helps lift impurities, soften the skin and remove excess oil. This part of the treatment will dislodge sebum, blackheads and whiteheads for clearer, smoother skin. The next step in the HydraFacial process is the HydroPeel Exfoliation. The abrasive edges of the HydroPeel will be used to exfoliate your skin, without causing significant irritation.
Am I a suitable candidate for a Hydrafacial Perth?
Anyone can benefit from the HydraFacial as it’s suitable for all skin types. Some people even prefer this treatment to IPL for their rejuvenation purposes. The benefits of the HydraFacial should be the same for everyone, including smooth, moisturised skin with minimised pigmentation (sun spots), acne and fine lines and wrinkles.
