What is Hydrafacial Good For?

Hydrafacial is fast-becoming one of the most popular facial treatments on the market. In 2017, a Hydrafacial was performed once every 15 seconds! That adds up to around 2 million treatments in one year.

Hydrafacial is so popular as it is a multi-purpose treatment that can help improve so many conditions. Perfect for dry, oily and combination skin as well as any skin tone from as fair as they come to rich, deep tones, HydraFacial is a fantastic treatment to help make the skin look and feel amazing, as well as giving your skin a fresh boost and healthy glow.

How Does Hydrafacial Work?

Hydrafacial uses its own revolutionary vortex technology to help cleanse, tone, exfoliate and deeply moisturise the skin to create a smooth, clean, glowing complexion. It’s also an infinitely customisable treatment, that can be tailored exactly to your skin type and the concerns you have.

Whether it’s fine lines and wrinkles, active acne, redness and rosacea, dryness, pigmentation and sun damage, congested and oily skin, or almost any other skin concern under the sun, we can create a Hydrafacial treatment plan that works for you and your skin, to give you a complexion that looks smoothed, toned and healthier overall.

Hydrafacial Express is an efficient package the allows you to see the benefits of Hydrafacial technology in the shortest amount of time. Hydrafacial Express can be carried out in less than half an hour and uses several different steps to help you get the most out of your skin.

At Elite Aesthetics, we start our Hydrafacial treatments with a facial massage to improve lymphatic drainage and increase circulation to the skin, while depuffing the face and neck.


Hydrafacial starts by using Vortex Exfoliation, which uses hydradermabrasion to gently cleanse all the impurities from the surface of the skin, opening up the pores in the face and washing away dead skin and other debris from the skin’s surface. We then administer a softly exfoliating serum of salicylic and glycolic acid deeply to the skin to help dissolve impurities deeper within the pores, and softening blackheads, whiteheads, and other deeply ingrained dirt and impurities.

The next step is Vortex Extraction, which is used alongside a salicylic acid and honey extract serum to suck all of the impurities out of the skin. Sebum, blackheads, dirt and other impurities are all sucked out of the skin by the Hydrafacial device, to clear congested areas without the use of painful extraction tools or breaking the skin. The impurities are sucked into a chamber, so you can actually see the amount of dirt and impurities held under the skin, and feel the cleansing results on your skin.


Finally, we use the device to administer a serum of peptides, antioxidants and hyaluronic acid, is carried out, which is the final step of the core Hydrafacial treatment. Using a wide tipped device with multiple surfaces, highly effective moisturising serums are applied to the skin and deeply absorbed. As the pores have been prepped by the exfoliation and extraction stages, the skin is primed to very effectively absorb these serums and allow them to be highly penetrative and effective. These serums are soothing, hydrating and calming, to help give your skin everything it needs to finish off the treatment.

At Elite Aesthetics, we can often combine treatments with Hydrafacial, including medical skin needling and deeper chemical skin peels, as well as offering a wide variety of Hydrafacial add-ons, including for anti ageing and intensive skin hydration.

before and after

Hydrafacial has been proven to help improve the appearance of:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Skin redness and rosacea.
  • Hyperpigmentation, uneven skin pigmentation and sun damage, including fine lines and brown age spots.
  • Oily and congested skin.
  • Active acne and breakouts.
  • Blackheads, whiteheads and clogged pores.
  • Dry skin, including rough or flaky skin.
  • Dull skin, to create a vibrant and illuminated appearance.
  • Skin that has lost elasticity and firmness over time, giving a lifted and plumped appearance.
  • Clogged or enlarged pores.

Hydrafacial is also perfect for treating sensitive skin, as it has a very low reaction rate, and as it doesn’t use pressure or sharp tools for extractions, is very gentle on skin that might react poorly to a more intensive treatment or extraction process.

Hydrafacial works for all skin tones and types and can help improve the tone, vibrancy and overall health of the skin.

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.
