What is HydraFacial MD?
HydraFacial MD is a revolutionary non-invasive procedure that uses award-winning, patented technology to revitalize the skin.
It is a multistep treatment that cleanses and evenly exfoliates the skin to remove impurities and dead skin cells, whilst replenishing the skin’s vital nutrients at the same time.
How does HydraFacial MD work?
HydraFacial MD rejuvenates the skin with a unique multistep technology. These steps can be tailored to address your specific skin concerns. After all, your skin isn’t like everyone else’s and your treatment shouldn’t have to be either!
Step 1: Vortex-Exfoliation
This uses Activ-4 serum, which contains lactic and glycolic acids, to remove dead skin cells.
Step 2: Vortex-Peel
Glysal serum, which is a mixture of glycolic and salicylic acids, gives results similar to a peel but without post-peel scaling.
Step 3: Vortex-Extraction
A painless vacuum suction cleans out pores with the help of Beta-HD serum. This has honey extract for hydration and anti-bacterial benefits, spirea ulmaria flower extract to soothe and calm the skin, and salicylic acid which helps to draw out impurities.
Step 4: Vortex-Boost
Depending on your specific needs, a variety of beneficial serums and solutions can be delivered to the skin. These may include Dermabuilder (peptides to correct fine lines and wrinkles), Britenol (alpha-arbutin and vitamin C to target skin discolouration and sun damage) and/or connective tissue growth factors that help bring skin back to a more youthful state.
Step 5: Vortex-Fusion
Nourishing serums containing anti-oxidants, peptides and hyaluronic acid are infused into the skin using Vortex-Fusion technology which ensures maximum results in the shortest time.
Anti-oxidants protect the skin cells from damage and boost cell function and repair. Peptides promote collagen and elastin production, which helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by the body and gives skin its elasticity.
How does HydraFacial MD help your skin?
The HydraFacial MD treatment is excellent for improving overall skin health. In addition, it is highly effective in correcting the following problems:
- uneven skin texture and tone – resulting in smoother skin and a more even, radiant skin tone
- pigmentation and sun damage
- signs of ageing (e.g. fine lines and wrinkles, saggy skin)
- oily skin
- enlarged and clogged pores
Am I suitable for this treatment?
Patients with shellfish allergies or very sensitive skin may not be suitable for HydraFacial MD. Our aesthetic doctor– Dr J Ngiam will be able to evaluate you and can customize the treatment based on your unique skin condition and needs.
How long does the treatment take?
It is easy to fit HydraFacial MD into your busy schedule as it is an efficient treatment that takes as little as 30 minutes.
Is there any pain or downtime involved?
One can expect minimal to almost no discomfort during the treatment – the sensation is often likened to “the feeling of a cool paintbrush moving over the face”.
One of the greatest advantages of HydraFacial MD is that there is no downtime. This means that you can put on make-up and return to your normal activities immediately after the treatment.
What results should I expect and how long do they last?
Many patients notice visible improvement after just one treatment, and these results may last 5 to 7 days or even longer. Regular treatments are highly recommended to achieve the best results.
