It’s a known fact: facials are the best way to soothe skin at the change of season, when it’s under extra stress. If the word ‘facial’ immediately brings to mind manual extractions, a gentle face massage, essential oils, serums and moisturisers, the new high-tech HydraFacial treatment is a little bit different.
The HydraFacial treatment removes dead skin cells and extracts impurities, while simultaneously bathing skin with cleansing, hydrating and moisturising serums. The treatment is soothing, refreshing, non-irritating and immediately effective. It’s very high-tech in that it goes a bit deeper than a classic facial, but is less intense than a laser treatment.
Patented Process to Cleanse, Exfoliate and Nourish
Rather than relying on manual exfoliation like traditional dermabrasion, this gentler approach vacuums out pores while simultaneously pushing in potent actives, which moisturise, brighten, plump, and protect. The machine’s hand piece, which holds spiralized treatment tips equipped with “vortex technology”, carries out a patented three-part regimen that consists of cleansing, exfoliating, and then infusing skin with intensive serums. The results are consistent, high-performance, and deliver great-looking skin each and every time.
HydraFacial is so gentle and non-invasive that the treatment can even be performed the same day as injectables. Even the V-Beam — which reduces redness and is sometimes used to effectively treat skin’s sun damage — and other non-ablative light and laser treatments, are safe for use the same day as a HydraFacial treatment. What’s more, It speeds up the shedding process that resurfacing devices (such as Fraxel) inevitably induce; it also deeply hydrates the skin, providing much needed moisture during the resurfacing process.
Who Can Benefit from a HydraFacial Treatment?
The beauty of the HydraFacial? It’s for everyone! In addition to the basic process, customisable serum further target fine lines and wrinkles, brown spots, oily and congested skin, and enlarged pores. It also boosts elasticity and firmness, evens out skin tone, increases vibrancy and improves skin texture. Sound too good to be true? Well, then you understand exactly why celebrities like Beyoncé, Britney and Kate Winslet are huge fans of HydraFacial!
However, if you do have active rashes, sunburns, or rosacea it’s best to stay away. Pregnant women will want to refrain as well, too, since certain ingredients in the facial, such as salicylic acid, haven’t been tested and proven safe during pregnancy.
None of these situations apply to you? Well, you’re in luck, and can start booking your appointment right now at Annie Young to discover and indulge in a HydraFacial!
