HydraFacial is the feelgood treatment in demand year-round that complements the entire gamut of surgical and non-surgical cosmetic treatments.

The HydraFacial from High Tech Laser delivers a multifaceted treatment, can be used as a stand alone and adjunctive procedure, and offers a sought-after treatment with a valuable return on investment.

Hydrafacial“The HydraFacial is simple to use and produces beautiful, clean, hydrated, radiant skin results that are visible straight after treatment,” says Perth plastic surgeon Dr Anh Nguyen, who has been using the HydraFacial system in her clinic for the past three years.

In an amalgamation of exfoliation, acid peels, pore extractions and antioxidant infusions, the HydraFacial is effective in cleansing, nourishing and brightening the skin. It stands out from other skin- resurfacing treatments in the way it hydrates and improves the appearance of the skin without any irritation, downtime or discomfort.

“Treatment with HydraFacial produces radiant, dewy skin in less than an hour,” says Dr Nguyen. “It’s ideal as a refreshment treatment before a big event, as there is no downtime associated with the treatment and it works on all skin types and all skin conditions.”

The HydraFacial how-to

There are five steps to the HydraFacial treatment – three steps to cleanse the skin and two steps to nourish it.

Cleansing and exfoliation are performed initially to remove dead skin cells. This is followed by an acid peel of glycolic acid and salicylic acid to dislodge grime from the pores, before a vortex suction extraction system is applied to decongest the skin completely.

“I commonly use HydraFacial to help treat dry skin, as well as acne-prone or congested skin,” Dr Nguyen explains. “Treatment is also effective in treating dull, uneven skin tones that are in need of a booster or pick-me-up.”

The cleansing and extraction steps are followed by the infusion of a highly active hydrating serum to nourish and protect the skin. Specialised HydraFacial skincare is also applied to help retain moisture and protect and smooth the skin’s surface.

“I use HydraFacial in conjunction with peels, skin needling, laser skin resurfacing treatments and also alongside injectable facial rejuvenation. It is particularly effective when used between more aggressive laser skin treatments,” Dr Nguyen explains. “HydraFacial can also be used after facelifts, blepharoplasty, rhinoplasty and facial cosmetic surgery to aid in recovery and enhance results.”

Return on investment with HydraFacial

Beauty therapists, dermal clinicians, nurses and doctors can all perform treatments with the HydraFacial, meaning the system can be easily incorporated in-clinic and used around the clock.

“The HydraFacial is sought after all year round,” says Dr Nguyen. “It gives a good return on investment in any clinic that offers skin, beauty and cosmetic surgical and non-surgical treatments, as it complements everything that we do. The associated skincare to maintain the health of the skin can also be sold as part of the skin treatment.”

There is no typical patient for HydraFacial. The treatment is widely applicable and suitable for those patients who are interested in maintaining and optimising skin health. “I have seen skin become dewy, radiant, clean and smooth after a single treatment,” Dr Nguyen says. “Healthier skin can be produced after a series of monthly HydraFacial treatments.”

“I believe everyone wants better skin. We not only treat our regular skin and beauty clients but also brides, high school students getting ready for a ball, celebrities preparing for the Logies or Music Awards, and our own plastic cosmetic surgery patients who have invested in themselves,” Dr Nguyen concludes.
