What is a HydraFacial?
Discover everything you need to know about Hydrafacials and the benefits for your skin, plus the best place to book your HydraFacial in Newcastle upon Tyne.
If you are a skincare lover, you’re likely no stranger to professional facials. All facials look to provide upkeep for skin health and target specific areas of concern. There is no other facial quite like a hydrafacial however. This revolutionary treatment helps to tackle a range of skin issues to allow your best self to shine through. One of the main benefits of hydrafacials is the fact that they truly give results that last, so serve as excellent alternatives to plastic surgery and invasive procedures. In this latest blog post, we cover everything you need to know about hydrafacials, the benefits, and where to get the best hydrafacial Newcastle upon Tyne has to offer.
What is a hydrafacial?
A hydrafacial refers to a facial treatment that combines a range of medical-grade techniques to tackle your personal needs when it comes to skincare. This could be acne, the signs of ageing or hyperpigmentation, to name just a few. With this treatment, a client typically receives a deep cleanse and exfoliation, plus extractions and intense hydration of the skin. We’re able to offer a diverse range of hydrafacials that are completely tailored to your skin’s personal needs and concerns. Each session includes a consultation with your facialist to identify which hydrafacial techniques will see the most benefit to your skin.
How does a hydrafacial work?
Most hydrafacials include 3 core techniques to help give you the glowing skin of your dreams. These revolve around cleansing, exfoliation and hydration:
Your facialist will perform a deep double cleanse in order to rid the skin of dirt and impurities. This ensures that they have a clean base to work from that will allow the other techniques and products they use to be absorbed by the skin more easily. It’s at this point during the treatment that your facialist may perform extractions, which is particularly beneficial for those with acne-prone skins.
The star of any hydrafacial is the exfoliation and microdermabrasion section. These treatments use a range of tools for exfoliation and resurfacing, and allow your facialist to target pigmentation concerns in a non-invasive and non-abrasive way to reveal a glowing and more even skin tone. This is a great way to give your skin regular exfoliation without irritation, even for the most sensitive of skins.
As the name suggests, hydrafacials also focus on putting a huge amount of hydration and moisture back into the skin. This is done through the use of deeply hydrating serums that can sink into the skin more easily after exfoliation and microdermabrasion treatments. This can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and give your skin a youthful glow and radiance.
The benefits of hydrafacials
There are countless benefits to receiving regular hydrafacial treatments with us. This is the only facial treatment you need to keep your skin in optimum condition and prevent the early signs of ageing. Find below just a few of the benefits you can receive from hydrafacials:
Many people who suffer from regular bouts of acne or breakouts turn to hydrafacials as an effective solution to calm their skin and avoid flare-ups. Microdermabrasion is an effective technique for both deeply cleansing and exfoliating the skin to remove dirt and oil that forms breakouts and acne. It’s also highly effective at reducing the effects of acne scarring, which may naturally take longer to heal if left alone.
Fights the signs of ageing
If you are concerned by the common signs of ageing (fine lines and wrinkles, a lack of elasticity in the skin) then you’ll love the benefits of our hydrafacials. The exfoliation and microdermabrasion methods used prompt new cell turnover to leave you with radiant and glowing skin. We combine this with deeply hydrating serums to moisturise your skin and reduce the appearance of any fine lines and wrinkles.
Helpful for sensitive skins
Some people with sensitive skin may struggle to find facial treatments that don’t trigger irritation. Our hydrafacials are gentle to all skin types and can be tailored to your own personal needs at every step. This makes hydrafacials the perfect way for those with sensitivities to maintain good upkeep of their skin.
Improves skin tone and texture
If you have concerns with hyperpigmentation issues, perhaps from acne scarring or sun damage, then hydrafacials are perfect for you. Microdermabrasion triggers new cell turnover, meaning your skin can achieve a more even tone and texture faster.
How often should I get a hydrafacial?
In order to see the full effect and benefits of a hydrafacial and witness lasting results, we recommend booking in for a treatment with us every 4 weeks. However, this does depend on your skin type and concerns. For example, some skin types may benefit from certain treatments every 2 weeks as a preventative measure for acne.
Are there any side effects of hydrafacials?
One of the main reasons people love hydrafacials so much is that there is practically no ‘down time’ after your session. Unlike plastic surgery procedures or more intense chemical peels, you can see the incredible benefits of a hydrafacial almost instantly. During the facial, treatments are used to help draw impurities from the skin, so there is a possibility your skin may purge with a breakout or two after your treatment.
There truly is no facial like a hydrafacial, and our clients can’t get enough of them. To find out more about your personalised hydrafacial and book in with us, get in touch today.
