Our senior aesthetician Charlotte Thomas carries out our HydraFacial treatments. She is a highly experienced aesthetic practitioner with extensive experience in a variety of highly-regarded aesthetics clinics, as well as being one of the UK’s HydraFacial ambassadors , so you know you’re in safe, experienced hands. Charlotte is passionate about HydraFacial, and loves how versatile, comfortable and innovative the treatment is, as well as the consistent results it enables her to give clients.
Your treatment process with us will start with a full consultation with Charlotte. She will explain to you the benefits of HydraFacial and make sure that it is the right treatment for you, as well as addressing your personal skin concerns, and how HydraFacial can treat them. She may also choose specific treatment serums and customise the treatment specifically for your unique skin conditions and needs.
During your HydraFacial treatment, Charlotte will take you through the different treatment steps, ensuring that your treatment is tailored to you. The HydraFacial is comfortable and relaxing, and can take as little as 30 minutes for our Express treatment. We also offer Skin Health and HydraFacial Plus treatments for the complete HydraFacial experience, which take a little longer, but allows you to get all of the benefits that HydraFacial technology can offer.
The HydraFacial device comes with different tips for each stage of the treatment. The innovative spiral shape of the tip is designed to provide multiple exfoliating surfaces on each pass of the device over the skin, creating a smooth and bright complexion. It also creates a larger surface area and increases the amount of time that serums are pressed into the skin, improving their effectiveness and the amount of nourishing serum that is absorbed by the body.
We start by using suction and facial massage to help improve lymphatic drainage, reducing swelling in the face and neck.
Vortex Exfoliation is the next step, which uses the HydraFacial device to apply HydraFacial’s own vortex technology and hydradermabrasion techniques, gently opening up pores and deeply cleansing the skin, loosening dead skin and other debris on the skin’s surface, while simultaneously washing them away using a serum of lactic acid, glucosamine and botanical extracts to cleanse and brighten the skin.
The third stage uses a different tip to administer a serum containing a combination of salicylic and glycolic acid to loosen impurities such as blackheads and other pore clogging substances and encourage skin cell turnover, leading to a brighter complexion.
Then using Vortex Extraction and a serum of natural, gentle salicylic acid and honey extract, these impurities are sucked out of the skin. This is a simple procedure that helps to remove blackheads, sebum and other impurities, leaving the pores cleaned out and congested areas cleared. The gentle suction also acts as a massage, improving lymphatic drainage and circulation in the area.
After this, Vortex Fusion is carried out. This step effectively applies serums tailored to you, and ensures that they are deeply absorbed into the skin. Containing some of the skincare industry’s most trusted ingredients, including hyaluronic acid, which is incredibly hydrating and can hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water, as well as powerful antioxidants and peptides. Since the pores and skin are now clean and detoxified, your skin is primed to fully absorb and feel the effects of these serums.
We can then also use LED light treatment to reduce any redness left by the HydraFacial treatment, as well as boost the skin’s natural collagen and vitamin D production, leaving your skin healthy and glowing.
After HydraFacial treatment, you can put on makeup and return to your normal activities straight away as there is no downtime. It is a non-irritating and hydrating, and leaves you with a beautiful, smooth complexion, and visible results after just one treatment.
The smooth, glowing results and skin hydration after HydraFacial treatment may last 5 to 7 days or even longer. At Elite Aesthetics we recommend one treatment per month to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots, oily and congested skin. Continued HydraFacial treatments help to maintain results and improve skin health over time. Packages are also available over a period of six weeks to twelve months to help keep your skin looking radiant and healthy, and saving you money on future treatments.
The Benefits of HydraFacial
HydraFacial is cleansing, gentle and is suitable for a wide variety of skin types, tones and concerns. Focused on the unique philosophy of ‘Skin health for life’, HydraFacial makes the perfect treatment for special occasions to give you radiant, glowing and healthy skin.
HydraFacial treats the appearance of fine lines through its highly effective combination of serums and promotes skin elasticity and firmness through its innovative vortex technology, helping to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is a perfect treatment for sufferers of rosacea as it helps to gently even the skin tone, without harsh abrasives or irritants, as well as for sufferers of acne, as it effectively exfoliates and clears the pores of impurities and bacteria that cause skin congestion, blackheads, skin texture and acne, without using pressure that disturbs the rest of the skin. This also makes pores, especially around the forehead, cheeks and nose, appear smaller. The salicylic and glycolic acid serums encourage more effective skin cell turnover, preventing skin and pores becoming clogged in the future. This increased turnover also promotes the brightness and vibrancy of the skin, as fresh, newly regenerated skin is more visible, and reduces the appearance of age spots and sun damage.
Our goal at Elite Aesthetics is encourage all our clients to have confidence in their own skin, and do what we can to help them feel amazing about themselves. Our staff want to share their medical knowledge and experience to help make our patients feel good, as well as to help promote good skincare practices and skin health. We see the smiles on our clients faces when they leave the clinic after a HydraFacial treatment, and that they keep coming back afterwards too!
