The hydrafacial produces radiant, glowing skin in less than an hour and appeals to a large patient demographic.

An effective treatment to produce radiant, glowing skin in less than an hour, the HydraFacial from High Tech Laser is perfect as a standalone treatment or to complement surgical or non-surgical cosmetic procedures. Easily integrated into any clinic, HydraFacial benefits both patients and cosmetic practices.

“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.

Its multifaceted treatment combines exfoliation, acid peels, pore extractions and antioxidant infusions, effectively cleansing, nourishing and brightening the skin. HydraFacial differentiates from other skin resurfacing treatments by hydrating and ameliorating the skin surface of all skin types and conditions, without irritation, discomfort or downtime.

The treatment protocol for HydraFacial consists of five steps: three cleansing and two nourishing. Dead skin cells are removed with cleansing and exfoliation, followed by a glycolic and salicylic acid peel to dislodge grime from the pores. A vortex suction extraction system is applied to fully decongest the skin.

The nourishing consists of an infusion of highly active hydrating serums, consisting of vortex-fused antioxidants and hyaluronic acid, which is applied to nourish and protect the skin.

What’s in it for you?

Beauty therapists, dermal clinicians and nurses and doctors can all perform treatments with hydrafacialthe 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,” she says.

Finally, the specialised HydraFacial Daily Essentials skincare is applied to help retain moisture and protect and smooth the surface of the skin.

“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.”

Especially effective for dull, uneven skin tones in need of invigoration, HydraFacial can also be used to treat dry skin in addition to congested or acne-prone skin, increasing a clinic’s client base.

“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.”

Hydra Facial is also effective post surgically. After facelifts, blepharoplasty, rhinoplasty and other facial cosmetic surgery, it can be used to aid recovery and enhance the results.

“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.”

The HydraFacial system is applicable for an extensive range of patients, from regular skin and beauty clients, to cosmetic surgery patients, from acne sufferers to clients just desiring a one-off complexion refreshment prior to a major life event.

Beauty therapists, dermal clinicians, nurses and doctors can all perform HydraFacial treatments, allowing for easy integration into any clinic. An additional incentive is the sale of associated skincare products.

Complementing skin, beauty, cosmetic surgical and non- surgical treatments, the scope of HydraFacial is boundless.
