Having your skin cleaned and massaged for 60 minutes is wonderfully healing for your soul, and certainly, your skin will look plump with product post treatment – but when it comes to getting real results for your hard earned money occasionally you must take an unique approach.
And I’m not saying botox.
The latest face treatment for getting the A list all energized is the HydraFacial – and after having had it, I can confidently say, it’s a little bit special.
The entire HydraFacial is performed using a vacuum based skin abrasion tip which is loaded with various serums, specially developed to target and combat a variety of skin issues.
And while having a probe rubbing your face doesn’t feel moderately as soothing as skilled facialist’s hands, the final results are exceptional.
The probe eliminates dead skin cells while bathing the healthy underlying skin with deep cleansing, exfoliating and antioxidant serums signifying that they are worked deep into the skin – specifically where they can take effect.
The serums are scientifically formulated to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, congested pores, hyper-pigmentation and acne-prone skin and are proposed based on your needs.
My specialist loaded the tip with a de-congesting serum for my blocked pores and a skin plumping serum to help add additional moisture to fill fine lines.
My two primary skincare problems targeted in one fast and very easy session.
Just before starting I clean away all signs of base and am relieved to know I won’t have to take off my eye make-up – this really is a facial for on-the-go girls.
There are many positives to this snazzy treatment that I want to spurt through them all out at one time – but let’s take into consideration the pros one at a time …
1. Celebrity endorsed
I confess. I’m a sap for any Hollywood therapy preferred by the stars. The 50 minute version of the HydraFacial is a have to for red-carpet treatment regulars Kate Winslet, Beyonce and Eva Mendes.
After having met Eva earlier this year – I would try ANYTHING this 38-year-old has to get my mid twenties complexion looking half as good.
2. It does what it says it’s promised to do
HydraFacial claim: “Treatments are quick, calming and effective. After the procedure, the skin is radiantly clean, exquisite, moist and polished.”.
And I cannot really say something to the opposite. After being prodded for 20 minutes I left with a few pink patches, but almost nothing that couldn’t be confused for a mid-afternoon rosiness. Twenty minutes after the procedure and there’s no signs of redness – rendering it a superb lunch time spark plug.
3. Your complexion will just keep on getting better.
The very best way in order to get initial results is to book in for a course of six – one treatment a week. This will definitely get your skin to a level that is noticeably improved.
Fine lines will be tapered, hyperpigmentation less obvious and blockage removed. After six weeks of treatments you can have a routine maintenance procedure once every two months.
4. Bespoke therapy every single time.
The HydraFacial is tailored to your specific skincare needs, signifying you will get an unique treatment suited to your skin’s needs. Feel amazing much?
5. Noticeable effects.
Clogged pores, worn-out look and lack luster – I was hoping that this would be the facial to besiege all traces of blackheads and shine me up a treat.
I wasn’t dashed. My pores were prepared with the decongestive serum before my therapist used the tip to suck out basically everything that was in them.
She showed me the developments half way through so I could see the contrast and it’s a good job I was already lying down.
If you really want squeeky clean pores that are high definition ready then it doesn’t get any better. The HydraFacial essentially rids you of any grime and accumulation – my skin was virtually singing with delight.
Post treatment I couldn’t believe I was make-up free. My skin looked even, vivid and glowing – and I went to the office where I was received with bunches of welcome words about how ‘well rested ‘ I appeared.
Post treatment it’s advised that you don’t touch your skin with any product until the next day – to allow your skin time to assimilate what’s already been pumped into it with the vacuum tip.
