HydraFacial Treatment key facts

What is HydraFacial?

HydraFacial is our convenient 30 minute, mild, non-invasive procedure using the latest Vortex technology. This treatment extracts dead skin cells providing cleansing, exfoliation, and hydration with the fusion of antioxidants, peptides and hyaluronic acid. This allows the skin to increase its uptake of essential nutrients. HydraFacial can improve fine lines, wrinkles and remove blackhead and impurities. You will see and feel the difference after one treatment.

This treatment will become your new obsession for your skin – it’s that good.

How does HydraFacial work?

HydraFacial uses vortex technology in the form of spiral tips that use a water base exfoliation. The suction motion of the tips removes dead skin cells and opens pores while stimulating the production of new cells. This treatment does this by nourishing the skin with essential ingredients that help improve the health of your skin in a variety of ways. The HydraFacial device can also be adjusted to deliver additional properties to the skin based on your individual skin needs.

What happens before, during and after Treatment?

Before your treatment:

You will meet Melissa Hamilton, our qualified and experienced HydraFacial skin treatment specialist, who will examine your face and any other areas receiving this treatment. Melissa will discuss your areas of concern, the procedure involved and develop a tailored-made treatment plan to suit the needs of your skin.

You can have the treatment immediately after your consultation or arrange to book your treatment for another time. There is no obligation at all to go ahead with the treatment, and we love when people come in to talk to us about how we can help.

 During your treatment:

You will lie down comfortably on a table in one of our treatment rooms while the HydraFacial machine is expertly placed on the treatment area or areas. When the wand touches your skin you will feel only a very light sucking sensation. Even with the hyaluronic acid applied there is no tingle sensation and only a damp coolness on the skin.

After your treatment:

Most of our patient notice visible results immediately after their first treatment and leave our clinic with a smooth and radiant complexion. Some people experience mild redness, especially around the nose, however, our specialists can recommend skin care products to help with this, and will suggest ways to care for your skin including applying sunscreen daily to protect your skin from harmful UV rays.

You can resume your normal day to day activities and even apply makeup straight after your treatment with no negative effects – just the benefits of healthy glowing skin.

A monthly follow-up treatment is a great way to maintain a healthy complexion and to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. About Face Brisbane has great value HydraFacial treatment packages available.

Other important information about HydraFacial

About Face Brisbane loves to make sure clients have all the facts about our treatments. Below is some additional information which will help you decide if HydraFacial is right for you.

Is HydraFacial suitable for sensitive skin types? What about dry or oily skin?

HydraFacial treatment can be adjusted to target the specific skin needs of all our patients including sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles and oily or dry skin. Using only a water-based exfoliation method, the non-invasive, mild procedure gives the same results as more aggressive treatments such as microdermabrasion, but without the harsh effects that traditional treatments such as microdermabrasion frequently cause. HydraFacial is suitable for all skin types and provides long-term results.

What areas can be treated?

HydraFacial mainly focuses on the face.

Is HydraFacial better than microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion uses a handheld device that ‘sands’ the skin to get rid of dead skin cells but it does not hydrate the skin. Microdermabrasion often leaves the skin red for longer than 24 hours and can cause long-term skin damage resulting in broken capillaries, increased oil production and thinning of the skin. About Face Brisbane does not provide or recommend microdermabrasion treatments. Don’t be tempted by cheap Groupon microdermabrasion ‘bargains’ – they are cheap for a reason, and your skin won’t thank you for it.

In total contrast to microdermabrasion, HydraFacial (which uses hydra-dermabrasion technology) does not use crystal technology or hard wands to assist in the exfoliation process so there is no abrasive damage done to the skin tissue. This is a gentle procedure removing dead skins cells while infusing nutrients into the skin at the same time. The results are a better complexion and improved skin health. With continued treatment, HydraFacial can reduce the severity of acne and skin pigmentation.

In About Face Brisbane’s expert opinion, HydraFacial is far better than microdermabrasion due to those facts.
