What is a HydraFacial?
Sometimes called ‘hydra dermabrasion’, a HydraFacial is a skin resurfacing treatment that uses patented technology to exfoliate, cleanse, and hydrate skin and remove dead cells. A HydraFacial wand is then used to infuse the skin with moisturising serums, leaving it with an instantly hydrated finish.
In principle, the procedure is like a regular facial, but is said to deliver more dramatic results. By combining cleansing, extraction, and serum infusions into a single procedure, a HydraFacial can give the skin an instant glow.
HydraFacials are a non-invasive treatment. This makes it suitable for all skin types, as it doesn’t cause any irritation or inflammation. Better yet, you can personalise the treatment based on your individual skincare goals.
A HydraFacial is a great choice for those who want to reap the benefits of a healthier-looking complexion. It can also be used to treat a variety of skin conditions, including acne, dryness, and wrinkles.

How does a HydraFacial work?
Before undergoing treatment, you will have an initial consultation to assess your needs. Given the non-invasive nature of HydraFacials, you can usually undergo the treatment straight after consultation.
During the treatment
A HydraFacial is split into three steps:
1. Cleanse and peel
Your clinician will begin by cleansing your skin with a vortex wand to remove any dirt and oil from your pores. An exfoliating peel will then be applied to your face.
2. Extract and hydrate
A vacuum-like attachment will be placed on the wand to remove excess debris from your pores. This is followed by a nourishing moisturiser to quench your skin.
3. Fuse and protect
The clinician will then use a pen-like attachment to saturate the skin’s surface with antioxidants.
A HydraFacial requires no downtime and is typically performed in around 30 minutes. Unlike some stronger facial treatments, such as chemical peels, most people don’t experience any side-effects.
You should avoid washing your face for around six hours after treatment, as keeping it dry for this time will allow for the best results. It’s also recommended that you keep your skin well moisturised and wear sunscreen when out in the sun.
A HydraFacial can help treat several common skin concerns, including:
Acne and blackheads
A HydraFacial uses innovative vortex technology to gently cleanse and remove blackheads, dirt, and impurities from the skin.
The treatment can help to smooth facial bumps and cleanse endangered pores, leaving the skin with a clearer and even tone.
Fine lines and wrinkles
The peel part of the procedure lifts and removes dead skin cells, which can help diminish the appearance of fine line and wrinkles.
As the name suggests, a HydraFacial is designed to hydrate the skin. During the treatment, the skin is treated with hydrating serums.
Skin tone and texture
A HydraFacial uses a unique suction method to remove dead cells from the skin’s surface. This can leave it with a clear, more even complexion. The skin is then infused with powerful antioxidants and serums to promote a radiant glow.

If a HydraFacial isn’t for you, there are plenty of alternative treatments you could try:
Decongesting facial – unblocks the skin’s pores and help minimise the appearance of blackheads.
Diamond facial – applies a non-surgical peel to the skin to help eliminate dead skin cells. A diamond facial can help your skin feel deeply cleansed, while a HydraFacial can leave you with a plump and hydrated finish.
Classic facial – one of the most popular spa treatments, a classic facial involves cleansing, steaming, exfoliating and extraction.
Microneedling – popular anti-wrinkle procedure that involves pricking the skin with tiny, sterilised needles. While a HydraFacial is considered a gentler treatment option, microneedling may be a better alternative for those with more stubborn concerns.
