What Is A HydraFacial And 3 Reasons Why You Should Get A HydraFacial This Summer

This insanely popular facial treatment is one the best treatment options if you’re on the hunt for healthy skin. 

What Is A HydraFacial?

A HydraFacial is a highly-customisable skin-loving treatment with little to no side effects and instantly noticeable results. It detoxifies and cleanses for every skin type, extracts impurities from dull skin and helps maintain skin elasticity while smoothing away those fine lines, wrinkles and open pores.

It is a very gentle, pain-free facial treatment – simply lie back and one of our skin experts will apply the patented HydraFacial device to your face and you’ll feel a light massage while gentle exfoliation takes place, removing impurities and boosting the hydration of your skin.

At Elite Aesthetics, we are skin experts and we love the HydraFacial for its fantastic results. And, by the looks of it, so do our clients! The HydraFacial has a 97% approval rating on and our clients across Bexley, Bromley, Maidstone, Dartford, Gravesend and the surrounding areas come back time and time again for their HydraFacial treatments! 

And it’s not just our local area that is falling in love with the HydraFacial facial treatment. A HydraFacial procedure is being performed somewhere in the world every 15 seconds! We think it is so popular as, unlike traditional facials, the HydraFacial is entirely customisable, delivers great results and is actually a pleasant, comfortable experience.

The HydraFacial Process

After a thorough consultation about the HydraFacial process, our senior aesthetician Charlotte Thomas will pass the unique, spiral-shaped tip over your face. This phase of the facial exfoliates the skin creating a bright, blemish-free complexion. It also creates a smoother, more permeable surface area onto which the serums are applied and absorbed into the skin. Then we use the HydraFacial’s own vortex pressure technology and hydradermabrasion techniques to open up your pores and clean the dead skin using a serum of lactic acid, glucosamine and botanical extracts. 

The third stage uses another tip which administers salicylic acid and glycolic acid to dissolve impurities like blackheads. Then using Vortex Extraction and another serum of salicylic acid and honey extract, the impurities are sucked out of the skin. This sounds scary but it’s a very simple procedure that gently removes sebum, dirt and other impurities, while the massaging sensation also improves lymphatic drainage and leads to incredible facial rejuvenation. 

Finally, we add bespoke serums created just for you that contain ingredients like hyaluronic acid, powerful antioxidants and peptides. We can then use an LED light treatment to reduce redness and boost natural collagen and vitamin D. 

Then before you know it, you’re all done! All in all, you can expect to be in the chair for 30 minutes or so, and we recommend getting a HydraFacial once a month.

Why Summer Is The Perfect Time To Get A HydraFacial

Summer and the warmer months call for clear, make-up free skin which means you want it to be at its best! When the sun comes out, covering up blemishes and imperfections with makeup can be messy, sweaty and just plain ineffective!

Between evenings spent outside with friends and family to those well-earned summer vacations, you don’t want to spend time worrying about your skin health… you want to be enjoying an Aperol in the sun!

Your beautiful summer skin is infused with nourishing peptides and antioxidants with HydraFacial

While those long summer days can be just perfect, there are some environmental side effects like intense heat and a high UV index that has the propensity to damage and weaken your complexion, leading to poor skin health no matter your skin type.

Applying sunscreen more regularly and sweating more than usual can also lead to unique skin concerns. HydraFacial treatments can boost your skin using all sorts of powerful ingredients like salicylic acid, glycolic acid infusions and serums, along with a light massage which will get rid of any pesky active rashes, puffiness and redness and meet your skin’s wants and needs.

Enjoy gentle exfoliation on your skin 

During the hottest, brightest months, your skin can really suffer – from skin-clogging sunblock to excessive sweating, it goes through a lot. All of this is reason enough to regularly exfoliate our skin during summertime, however too much exfoliation can leave skin more sensitive to UV rays. The beauty of the HydraFacial is that it offers a perfect balance of gentle exfoliation to give your skin all the essential nutrients and goodness without damaging it in the long run.


No downtime thanks to instant results

We all want to look our best during the summer months, but don’t want to waste time in clinics when we could be out with friends or jetting off to sunnier climes. The great thing about a HydraFacial is that it only takes around 30 minutes meaning you can have perfect glowing skin and enjoy your time in the sunshine!

Read How I Improved My Lichen Sclerosus

Had a consultation with Elite yesterday, I must say I was a bit nervous, but Dr Shirin was so friendly and helpful.
I was given lots of advice and was given treatment options that were within my budget.
A few weeks after the P Shot I've really started to see a difference and have gained my confidence back.

Thank You!



Elite is an outstanding professional clinic with high standard treatments. All the staff members are friendly and offer you honest opinions when it comes to products and treatments. This is a welcoming clinic that I can 100% recommend. Treatments are spoken through and explained in detail, also aftercare. I have been going nearly a year now and am happy with all the treatments I’ve had, wouldn't go anywhere else. The Bocox treatment started to work within a few days, which I was surprised about. So glad I went to Elite for treatment.



Thank you Dr Shirin, the O Shot has really helped me with my Lichen Sclerosus. I'd heard about the treatment on the LS Facebook Groups and message a few people that had treatment with Dr Shirin. I was like many in the group who had run out of treatment options and using creams on a daily basis. I have to say a few months after treatment, I can see a real positive change and I'm hoping my LS will continue to improve. Dr Shirin did say that I might have to have a second treatment given how severe my case is.




A great discovery in the neighbourhood ! There is no need to go up to London for a beauty treatment of any kind. You'll find a whole range of different treatments suiting all age groups and concerns. Welcoming, reassuring, friendly, professional, high tech. I shall be back for more. I love the results of the Thread Lift I had.


Great service as always, skin is glowing very happy


Very happy with the result of my recent visit. For sure will continue with Elite in future

Hi, Alex here,Just had my Lichen treatment today with Dr Shirin,The whole team at elite are very friendly, comforting and understanding, and did everything they could to give me a wonderful and welcoming experience. They are all so kind, friendly and knowledgeable, world experts at what they do. I am lucky to have them near London. They are also super responsive on the phone and email, so I know they care about thier patients, and I'm very well taken care of, (as with other clinics I have been to, its often difficult to get them to respond to questions), but this clinic is the most responsive I have ever seen!This is a beautiful and wonderful place and I highly recommend it, and I will be recommending it to all my friends as well. They definitely deserve the super high reviews they are getting, so I'm happy to add another one! A Big thank you from me and my family for all you have done for us during this journey!

Yesterday I had a 'body sculpt' session, to help lymphatic drainage. I was zipped into a suit up to my waist. This massaged and lightly squeezed my feet, ankles, calves, thighs and abdomen. I was breathing oxygen rich air via nasal tubes. It was very relaxing and I slept really well last night. Thank you Elite Aesthetics.
