HydraFacial Treatment in Newcastle Upon Tyne
There are now exciting and innovative ways to protect and enhance the appearance of your face, without surgery.
However, choosing the best options can sometimes be tricky. You may have heard of HydraFacial skin treatments and be wondering how they work and whether there are any HydraFacial Newcastle providers.
This is a complete guide to this increasingly popular skin treatment option. A system that has won awards, and has proven to bring substantial – and immediately obvious – improvements in facial skin health and appearance.
Our guide will include answers to many of the commonly asked questions for anyone considering booking HydraFacial services in Newcastle and beyond. It will look at how do HydraFacial treatments work, what are the benefits, and are there risks involved?
First, let’s explore exactly what is meant by HydraFacial, and what’s involved in this treatment option.
What is HydraFacial?
You may also see this skin treatment option referred to as hydradermabrasion. As that name suggests, this is a careful and well-controlled ‘abrasive’ method to exfoliate the skin. In other words, to remove dead skin cells and other tiny debris in a kind, and medically supported way.
Part of the reason HydraFacial is an effective method of refreshing and revitalising skin is that the system relies on specialist hydrating serums. These plump up the surface of your face – and nourish its structure – after the exfoliation process, adding to its health and vitality.
This means HydraFacial treatments are done in three steps – a deep cleanse, then gentle exfoliation, followed by the application of serums that hydrate and nourish your skin. These serums vary according to your treatment plan and contain a carefully formulated blend of things like antioxidants, skin-positive vitamins, collagen and elastin.
How does this differ from standard facials?
The technology and serums used are more advanced than the products normally used in facials. The way they work in tandem is also highly significant. This also means the results you get from HydraFacial treatments can be substantially more noticeable. Not just in terms of how your skin looks following the session, but also how it feels to you.
You may well also find that the benefits are more long-lasting, as the improvements to your facial skin are more substantial.
Who provides HydraFacial treatments?
As this is a specialist procedure using technology under license, it is important to find a provider who is skilled in delivering aesthetic treatments. This would be a professional beautician for example, with high levels of training in the latest methods used by spas and salons.
Choosing a qualified and responsible provider of this service is key, as getting the best results from HydraFacial treatments depends on a bespoke service. You need a professional who takes the time to get to know your skin type, your lifestyle and goals, and who then adjusts the treatment plan accordingly.
Who would benefit from HydraFacial treatments?
The quick answer to ‘who should book HydraFacial Newcastle appointments?’ is anyone!
Modern lifestyles and air pollution around this city location take their toll on everyone’s facial skin. A treatment to restore its natural vitality and resilience is bound to be a good thing.
However, there are some groups of people who would particularly benefit most from this advanced skin treatment option. HydraFacial sessions are particularly valuable if you need to address issues such as facial acne, acne scars and excessive dryness.
It has been shown to be effective in helping to address facial blackheads too, and badly blocked pores.
Are you worried about the signs of ageing on your face? HydraFacial treatments may also provide a marked improvement for skin that is lined, wrinkled or dull in appearance.
There is evidence for this in medical studies into the use of microdermabrasion – with the pneumatic application of an antioxidant-based serum – to achieve facial rejuvenation.
The reason this option can bring such wide-ranging benefits is that it uses a combination of the three stages mentioned above, to create a more substantial change compared to using exfoliation or facial serums on their own.
More reasons to book HydraFacial Newcastle appointments
If you live in the Newcastle area, and you decide this treatment option matches your needs and aims, what are the likely outcomes?
Mention has already been made of the way HydraFacial treatments can go beyond the boundaries of traditional facials and achieve substantial improvements to the way your skin looks and feels.
This includes removing toxins, dead cells, oil and microscopic dirt particles, for example, to open your pores and improve your skin health.
Carefully removing all these impurities, and opening your pores, creates the perfect surface for the rich serums to penetrate down into your facial skin.
How quickly will you notice improvements after HydraFacial sessions? The short answer is immediately! Your skin may feel less tight but firmer, and it will certainly be more elastic and smoother. Results also include a healthy glow to your skin, and a general improvement in facial skin tone, brightness and vitality.
A typical HydraFacial Newcastle session
What usually happens when you book a HydraFacial treatment in Newcastle, or anywhere else in the UK?
This is known as a non-invasive aesthetic treatment, so it is simple to arrange, and in the right hands can be a pleasant experience.
The whole process usually takes less than an hour, and it involves little or no preparation, apart from removing any makeup you are wearing. Unlike some treatments – such as chemical peels – you can go back to enjoying the rest of your day afterwards.
The aesthetics technician who provides this treatment will offer you an initial consultation to explore your skin issues and its general condition. As well as what you hope to achieve from this treatment. This is important as the treatment should be bespoke to your skin.
During your session, you would be made comfortable, and then the patented HydraFacial technology will be used according to your needs.
This will involve the technician using a mechanised wand, and passing it over your facial skin to deep clean, then exfoliate. The wand includes the ability to provide gentle suction along the lines of a vortex effect. This lifts out and removes even debris and dirt that’s invisible to the human eye, and also the build-up of oil that can clog your skin pores.
Sometimes, a peel is also used to be doubly sure that all impurities have been removed from the skin on your face and neck.
Interestingly, the HydraFacial system has been designed to extract all this material from your skin, in a complete – and therefore highly effective – way. There is no chance of impurities simply transferring from one place to another!
Remember, one of the ways HydraFacial treatments achieve outstanding results is that the technology mentioned above is used in conjunction with carefully formulated serums. These are applied to your skin using an attachment that looks like a pen. The device skillfully places the nutrient-rich substance deep into your skin structure. Which is far more effective than something rubbed onto the skin’s surface.
These serums work in conjunction with your natural skin biochemistry to hydrate and rejuvenate the cell structures. Therefore, what they contain will vary according to your skin type and needs. They will always be packed with the nutrients – including antioxidants – that support good skin health though.
The whole HydraFacial process is done seamlessly, in one session, while you sit back and relax.
You could also ask your cosmetic treatment technician about other services that complement and support the effects of HydraFacial sessions. Such as the use of light therapy, or dermal fillers. Ask your aesthetic treatment technician about other ways to expand on your HydraFacial treatment too, such as by adding lip or eye perks to your plan.
How often can you book HydraFacial sessions?
This is something you should discuss with your cosmetic treatment technician when you arrange your first HydraFacial appointment. That’s because the frequency depends on your skin type and your individual needs and preferences.
You will see online information about HydraFacial treatments that suggest monthly sessions are the best ways to keep on top of your skin health, appearance and feel. However, if you have especially challenging facial skin issues, follow-up treatments after two weeks could be the best way to optimise the results of a HydraFacial session.
Of course, you could simply book a one-off treatment session too. Booking a HydraFacial just before an important social engagement or job interview, or as preparation for your wedding, can give you a wonderful boost in your appearance and confidence.
Frequently asked questions about HydraFacial Newcastle sessions
This guide aims to provide a lot of the information you need to decide if this particular skin care option is the right one for you. However, you may still have questions. People often do, when they book their first appointment.
To give you further insights – and reassurance – we have gathered together some of the most common questions asked by people when arranging HydraFacial Newcastle appointments.
Does it hurt to undergo HydraFacial treatment?
Concern about discomfort should not put you off booking HydraFacial treatments, as this is a painless aesthetic improvement option. You may feel a slight pressure as the wand is used across your skin surface, but it is light and not in any way unpleasant.
Will my face be red after my HydraFacial Newcastle appointment?
Unlike some other options to significantly cleanse, exfoliate and improve facial skin, HydraFacial treatments don’t make your skin red, sore or tender to the touch. The carefully formulated serums used are wonderful at soothing and enriching your face.
Do HydraFacial techniques have side effects?
There appear to be no side effects from HydraFacial treatments, beyond the light pressure during your session that we mentioned in this guide. However, it is vital when you book an appointment for HydraFacial services that you mention any underlying health conditions which affect your vulnerability to new products applied to your skin. This is especially true of medical conditions you have that cause rashes or sensitivity, that may not be spotted by the technician when they do their careful evaluation of your skin.
You should also avoid HydraFacial sessions when you have sore or inflamed skin, including a significant rosacea flare. Any beauty treatment is unwise under these conditions.
How soon will I see the difference, after a HydraFacial Newcastle appointment?
You only have to look at HydraFacial before and after photos to know how quickly you can see a big difference in someone’s skin. Visible improvements are instant, and people who undergo this patented, and award-winning system report that their face feels a lot better straight away too.
Often the last bit of evidence is the ‘touch test’. Your facial skin with feel smoother, softer and more supple, if you gently run your fingertips across it.
How soon do HydraFacial effects wear off?
One of the advantages of a HydraFacial treatment in a Newcastle spa or salon is that you will enjoy brighter, healthier-looking skin for some time. Largely as the treatment boosts your facial skin’s vitality and resilience.
However, the effect will wear off, not least as you will continue to expose your face to normal air pollutants and the effects of your diet and general lifestyle. Even central heating, air conditioning and sunlight can have a negative impact on facial skin health.
For this reason, it’s recommended that you book regular HydraFacial sessions. How frequent these are is up to you, but your technician would be happy to suggest a plan that keeps the skin on your face on top form year round!
Can you have HydraFacial treatments when pregnant?
Though this is a safe way to refresh and improve your skin, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding booking appointments for HydraFacial sessions (or any cosmetic treatment) should be discussed with your medical practitioner or health visitor first. It is simply a sensible precaution.
What aftercare is needed for HydraFacial appointments in Newcastle and beyond?
As this is a non-invasive and carefully controlled cosmetic treatment – using nourishing serums to match your skin – there are no rules about what you can or can’t do after HydraFacial sessions. You can get back to work, or return home, and carry on as normal!
The only thing that is wise, is to avoid any other form of exfoliation on your face for a few days, to prevent excessive abrasion on the delicate skin there.
Which serum is best for my face?
The serums used in conjunction with HydraFacial treatments vary according to need. Your technician will choose the most appropriate one for you, to help you to tackle issues like acne or the signs of ageing. This is one of the reasons HydraFacial Newcastle appointments are so beneficial. They are bespoke to you and your goals, and the technology and products used are highly evolved and innovative.
Are HydraFacial treatments suitable for all skin types?
HydraFacial appointments are a universal and easily accessible way to improve the health, appearance and feel of facial skin, whatever your gender or skin type. Can you use HydraFacial techniques on sensitive skin? Yes you can, though you must discuss any significant issues – especially medical conditions – with your technician. It’s the sort of information they will use to make sure your facial treatment is highly bespoke to you.
How can I prepare for HydraFacial sessions?
There is usually nothing you need to do to get ready for HydraFacial treatments, beyond arriving at the spa or salon with no makeup on so the consultation and treatment can begin immediately.
However, if you use specific medications and creams due to significant skin conditions, you should contact your cosmetic treatment technician (and possibly your GP) in advance. You may be advised to avoid using these for a short time in the lead-up to HydraFacial treatment, to avoid any product clashes.
Is it expensive to book HydraFacial Newcastle appointments?
The cost of HydraFacial treatments varies from provider to provider. Keep in mind any additional treatments provided in conjunction with this procedure – such as light therapy for problem skin – will increase the charges.
However, you need to weigh the cost of HydraFacial sessions against the potential results and the fact that this is a three-in-one way to improve facial skin health. In one session, you get a deep clean and exfoliation, and the benefits of expertly formulated face serums not available ‘off the shelf’.
Just think how much you will save by booking a HydraFacial treatment, compared to multiple lotions, potions and oils that have little or no effect. The most expensive beauty treatment you will ever buy is the one that didn’t work!
