FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is HydraFacial?
HydraFacial is an invigorating treatment that can be given in as little as 30 minutes. It delivers long-term skin health and can be tailored to meet the specific needs of all skin types. It offers instant, noticeable results with no downtime or irritation. The HydraFacial treatment removes dead skin cells and extracts impurities while simultaneously bathing the new skin with cleansing, hydrating and moisturizing serums. The treatment is soothing, refreshing, non-irritating and immediately effective.
The HydraFacial treatment is a novel concept in aesthetic technology. It takes its name from the word ‘hydrate’- to cause to take up moisture. This ability to moisturise the skin separates the HydraFacial™ from all other skin resurfacing procedures. The HydraFacial™ treatment removes dead skin cells and extracts impurities, while simultaneously infusing the fresh skin with cleansing, hydrating and moisturising serums. The treatment is soothing, refreshing, and non-irritating. Most importantly, it is immediately effective whilst at the same time making significant contribution to long-lasting skin health.
Why is HydraFacial good for my skin?

How long does the treatment take?
Our goal is to help support you in a balanced lifestyle. That’s why HydraFacial is a fast, efficient treatment that takes as little as 30 minutes. With added lymphatic drainange, led therapy and your personalised choice of boosters and perks it can take up to 75 minutes. You may put on makeup and return to your normal activities right after the treatment since there is no downtime.
What results may be expected?
Many clients report seeing visible skin refinement and an even, radiant skin tone after just one treatment. The smooth results and hydration may last 5 to 7 days or even longer. We don’t believe in quick fixes, so one treatment per week or month is recommended for improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots, oily and congested skin. The frequency depends on the skin health and issues we are treating. Continued HydraFacial treatments are highly recommended to maintain skin health results.
How many treatments are needed to see results?
You will see an immediate improvement in your skin after just one treatment. Specific skin concerns may require several visits to address, and for optimum continued results, regular weekly or monthly sessions are recommended.
How long do the results last?
The immediate skin improvements will last for several days and can be maintained by using the Daily Essentials products. Regular weekly or monthly visits (depending on skin health) will ensure that the health and appearance of your skin continues to improve.
Are there any contraindications?
Treatment is not appropriate for those who:
- have taken Roaccutane within the last six months
- have an allergy to aspirin, prawns or honey
- have autoimmune disorders
- are pregnant, or are breastfeeding
- have had cold sores in the previous month
- have undergone cosmetic injections in the preceding week
- have had other procedures to the area recently, such as laser, chemical peels, or waxing
- have a lymphatic disorder
- have active eczema, open wounds, or fresh scars on the area.
In addition, it is necessary for all patients undergoing treatment to avoid Retinol and Retin-A products for two days before and after treatment.
