What Does HydraFacial Treat

A facial that encompasses a variety of steps and treatment methods in one session, HydraFacial may treat multiple skin concerns.

At Inigo Cosmetic in Brisbane, we will tailor the treatment to suit your needs, customising the steps of the treatment to target your concerns and achieve optimal results.

In this blog, we’ll explain what a HydraFacial is and what skin concerns it may be tailored to treat. If you like the sound of the treatment, you can book a consultation with one of our team members to get started on your skin-healing journey.

What is HydraFacial?

HydraFacial combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration, and antioxidant protection in a single treatment. It is designed to improve the overall health and appearance of the skin by addressing various skin concerns such as fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, oily or congested skin, and uneven skin texture.

How is the treatment performed?

During a HydraFacial treatment, a handheld device delivers a series of specialised serums to the skin. The device uses a unique spiral tip that simultaneously exfoliates the outer layer of dead skin cells, extracts impurities from the pores, and infuses the skin with hydrating and nourishing serums. The process usually takes 30 to 45 minutes to complete.

Cleansing and exfoliation
First, we’ll cleanse the skin and remove the dead cells to prepare it for further treatment.

Acid peel
A mild glycolic and salicylic acid solution is then applied to the skin to gently exfoliate and loosen debris from the pores.

Extraction
The HydraFacial device uses a vacuum-like suction to extract impurities and unclog pores without causing discomfort.

Hydration
The device then delivers a customised blend of serums containing antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid to replenish and hydrate the skin. We’ll personalise your combination of serums during your initial consultation.

Protection
The treatment concludes with applying a moisturiser and sunscreen to protect the skin from environmental damage.

Treatable skin concerns with HydraFacial

HydraFacial may effectively address various skin concerns and improve the overall health and appearance of the skin.

Some common treatable skin concerns include fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, oily or congested skin, enlarged pores, uneven texture, dull skin, dry skin, and acne-prone skin.

By promoting collagen production and improving skin elasticity, the treatment may help to reduce the signs of ageing and make the skin look smoother. For individuals dealing with hyperpigmentation, such as dark spots or uneven skin tone, HydraFacial may help fade pigmentation irregularities and promote a more even complexion through exfoliation and the delivery of brightening serums.

Those with oily or congested skin may benefit from the treatment’s gentle exfoliation and extraction. The treatment is designed to remove excess oil, debris, and impurities from the pores, resulting in more transparent and less congested skin.

Enlarged pores may also be addressed with HydraFacial. The exfoliation and extraction steps of the treatment could help minimise the appearance of pores, giving the skin a smoother and more refined look. Uneven skin texture may also be improved. The exfoliation and hydration steps have the potential to enhance skin texture, making it softer and more even.

The treatment may immediately boost hydration and nourishment if you have dull skin. HydraFacial may also also effective for individuals with dry skin. The treatment infuses the skin with hydrating serums that deeply moisturise and replenish, helping to alleviate dryness and dehydration.

For those struggling with acne-prone skin, the exfoliation and extraction steps may help to unclog pores, reduce inflammation, and improve the skin’s overall condition.

Multiple skin concerns may be treated, and we will personalise your treatment to target your specific circumstances.

How the treatment can be personalised

HydraFacial can be personalised to cater to individual skin concerns and needs. The treatment can be tailored to address specific skin concerns, target problem areas, and achieve optimal results for each individual.

Since the treatment involves using various serums during the hydration step, the serums can be specifically selected to address skin concerns such as hyperpigmentation, fine lines, or oily skin. We can choose serums containing specific ingredients like antioxidants, peptides, hyaluronic acid, or growth factors based on your skin’s unique needs.

The treatment also offers different booster options that can be added to the treatment. These boosters are designed to target specific concerns further. For example, options are available for brightening, collagen boosting, or clarifying purposes. By incorporating these boosters, the treatment can be personalised to address your specific skin requirements.

The frequency and duration of HydraFacial treatments can also be personalised. Based on your specific concerns and goals, we may recommend a treatment schedule that ranges from a single session for an immediate boost to a series of treatments spaced over several weeks for more substantial and long-lasting results.

After the HydraFacial session, we can provide personalised recommendations for skincare products and routines. These recommendations may include specific cleansers, moisturisers, or serums suitable for your skin type and concerns. These post-treatment recommendations are tailored to help maintain and enhance the results achieved through HydraFacial.
