Ready, steady, glow…

What is a HydraFacial?

A HydraFacial is a treatment that uses patented technology to cleanse, extract and hydrate the skin, painlessly and quickly. A more progressive form of microdermabrasion called hydrodermabrasion, the HydraFacial treatment works deeper beneath the skin’s surface to nourish your complexion with targeted skin correcting ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, peptides and protective antioxidants.

Who is the treatment ideal for?

Suitable for all skin types, ages and complexions, the HydraFacial is able to deliver powerful and positive skin transformations across an array of skin concerns from fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage and congestion.

For those with unwanted pigmentation caused by too much sun exposure, the HydraFacial’s rich antioxidant formulation paired with the UV blocking properties of Red Algae will deliver serious results. Combined, the formulation evens out pigmentation and uneven skin tone while simultaneously plumping and regenerating the skin – what’s not to love! What’s more, those with oily-prone, congested skin will find the Vortex Fusion technology rids oil, dirt and blackheads more effectively than any other treatment.

What’s different about the HydraFacial treatment?

Unlike traditional facials that work exclusively on the surface of the skin, the HydraFacial delves deeper beneath the skin’s surface to nourish and replenish your complexion with targeted skin correcting ingredients. And while typically extraction treatments can be uncomfortable, the HydraFacial treatment is hailed for being totally pain free.

What happens during a HydraFacial?

A HydraFacial at The Skin Lab begins with a thorough examination of your skin with their UBSERV skin analysis system to help identify your skin issues before the three-step treatment is implemented.

Starting with the cleanse and peel process, dead skin cells and excess sebum are removed through gentle exfoliation. Next, a mix of salicylic and glycolic acid is applied to break up any dirt, oil and impurities that are clogging the pores, delivering the benefits of a peel without post-peel scaling.

Then, the HydraFacial removes debris from pores with painless suction from a vacuum-like tip called the HydraPeel, while hydrating, plumping and nourishing serums are simultaneously applied to the skin.

Lastly, the fuse and protect step in the treatment refines your pores by targeting specific skin concerns and saturating the surface with antioxidants and peptides to maximise your glow.

Is there any downtime? 

A major draw card of the treatment is that there is virtually zero downtime, meaning the treatment can be booked whenever, without hassle. Thanks to the immediate results, The Skin Lab recommends booking the treatment right before a big event.
