What is a Hydrafacial?

What are the six steps included in a Hydrafacial?
The Hydrafacial uses a completely unique series of steps, to create a single well balanced treatment. The steps include…
Lymphatic Drainage – using vacuum suction, the skin is fully detoxed using lymphatic drainage to reduce water retention that causes puffiness to the skin.
Deep Cleanse and Exfoliation – the next step is to deeply cleanse the skin and remove dead skin cells through exfoliation. This supports the following steps by preparing the skin to better absorb the products used, as well as brightening the skin and revealing a new layer of skin.
Chemical Peel – using a blend of salicylic acid and mandalic acid, new, healthier, brighter and fresher skin is revealed through the application of a chemical peel. This offers a variety of benefits including creating a more youthful appearance and improving acne.
Extraction – next you will undergo blackhead extraction. This is carried out using a special suction tip, to remove blackheads and improve congestion without discomfort.
Deep Hydration – using high performance peptides and nourishing serums, your skin is massaged for deep nourishment and a healthy glow.
