A simple observation on the limitations of microdermabrasion for some skin types led to the development of the revolutionary professional treatment that is now sold in more than 87 countries and performed more that two and a half million times every year.

HydraFacial is the innovative non-surgical treatment that allows the results of an advanced professional facial to be achieved in less than 30 minutes. Hydrafacial uses a patented tip to perform a range of different functions on the skin including cleansing, hydrating, clearing congested pores and delivering serums of antioxidants, peptides and hyaluronic acid. The treatment creates instantly noticeable improvements in skin tone and texture with less treatment time, and without causing discomfort or downtime.

The developers of Hydrafacial were the first company in the USA to patent a microdermabrasion device. However, after a few years of selling microdermabrasion they realised that the treatment was unsuitable for long-term use on certain skin-types. They set about developing a treatment that could be used on all skin types and created a device that merged clever technology with a series of specially formulated serums. The result was what today we know as Hydrafacial.

HydraFacial uses a multi-stage process where different modalities work together to achieve more comprehensive results than if each stage was performed alone. The steps in a HydraFacial treatment include:

  • Deep cleansing and exfoliation that combines serums, dermabrasion via a patented spiral tip and a mild skin peel that softens the pores and increases the effectiveness of the next step of the treatment.
  • An innovative method of painless pore extractions that uses the Hydropeel tip to deliver gentle suction to clear congestion and ‘blackheads’ from the pores.
  • With the skin cleansed and free of congestion serums containing antioxidants and Hyaluronic Acid are applied to nourish, hydrate and protect the skin.

Hydrafacial steps beyond microdermabrasion because it is a multistage facial treatment that uses dermabrasion as just one of the steps. Dermabrasion is incorporated in the first step of the treatment through the use of the patented Hydropeel tip. This dermabrasion is used to enhance skin cleansing and prepare the skin for the additional treatment modalities that follow later in the treatment. Each treatment modality used in Hydrafacial builds on the previous step to create even better results than if it was applied as a stand-alone treatment. The result is a comprehensive rejuvenation without any one step being overly aggressive on the skin.

HydraFacial can be used as either a stand-alone treatment or in combination to enhance the results of other advanced treatments. For example, Hydrafacial can prepare skin before laser or surgery, or help freshen the skin after the use of dermal fillers or anti-wrinkle injections. Research combining Intense Pulsed Light photo-rejuvenation and Hydrafacial has shown that the addition of HydraFacial significantly improved the result compared to IPL alone and minimised the loss of antioxidants from the skin.
