Beyond the natural signs of ageing, there is an array of skin concerns that can occur over time. These concerns can be a result of stress or other environmental factors. While a good skincare regime is essential, sometimes, your skin needs a boost at a deeper level.
The AquaPure HydroFacial is a 4 in 1 treatment that’s capable of detoxifying and rejuvenating the skin from the inside out. The HydroFacial system cleans, exfoliates and nourishes the skin with the help of customised hand-pieces and patented serums. One of the most unique features is the Vortex-Fusion delivery system, which uses a spiral design for painless extractions and deep cleaning, exfoliating and hydration.
This non-invasive treatment is the perfect complement to your usual at-home skincare regime, ensuring your skin receives additional care and nutrients when it needs it the most.
The fact that a HydroFacial is capable of cleaning, exfoliating and nourishing the skin during one treatment is just one of the reasons why it’s become this popular.
Ideal Candidates for AquaPure HydroFacials
The ideal HydroFacial candidate has minor pigmentation, fine lines, oily, congested skin and a dull complexion. The HydroFacial is ideal for all skin types – even sensitive skin can tolerate treatment. Any patient over the age of 20 can benefit from this treatment as this is when the skin starts showing signs of ageing and collagen loss. Severe forms of lines and wrinkles can benefit but won’t be eliminated – additional treatments are required for this. HydroFacials must be avoided if you have an active rash, sunburn or rosacea.
Once your concerns have been discussed and your skin evaluated, it’s prepped for a HydroFacial treatment. Any makeup and moisturisers will need to be removed before treatment begins. The treatment has four different stages:
- Cleansing – During this stage, the skin is manually cleaned at a deep level, ensuring all impurities are removed and the pores are cleared.
- Exfoliation – Next, different tips are used to exfoliate the skin. This will open up the pores and remove the dead skin cells that cause lines and a dull complexion. This stage will allow your skin to breathe. This exfoliation is a lot deeper than what can be achieved at home.
- Extraction – During this stage, all acne, whiteheads and blackheads are removed using a gentle vacuum. If you wanted to, you could even have a look at everything that’s been extracted from your pores. This stage will leave your skin feeling smoother and looking clearer.
- Hydration – Lastly, the skin will be hydrated and nourished using a specialised serum. The serum is designed to cling to water molecules, which plumps up and rejuvenates the skin. As your skin continues to benefit from the serum’s nutrients, a natural, healthy glow develops and remains in between treatments.
The average HydroFacial takes about 45 minutes to complete, making it easy to schedule over your lunchtime break. Patients are free to return home or go back to work directly after their appointment. It’s perfectly fine to apply makeup directly after your treatment but a mineral makeup is best. It’s also essential that you use sunscreen daily for several days after your session.
To maintain hydration levels, suppleness and a healthy glow, a HydroFacial should be scheduled once a month. Your facial can also be combined with additional treatments such as wrinkle relaxers or dermal fillers. A customised treatment plan will be developed during your consultation.
This advanced microdermabrasion treatment can treat a number of common skin concerns, including breakouts, large pores, acne scars, lines and wrinkles. Not only is the skin cleaned at a deep level but blood circulation increases and collagen production increases. The result is softer, more supple skin that glows naturally.
Patients can expect to see a noticeable difference directly after a HydroFacial, with the results gradually improving between sessions. The skin will appear less damaged and look healthier and more youthful. Combining HydroFacial sessions with a healthy lifestyle and a good at-home skincare regime will help you maintain your results.
