Just when you'd come to term with which type of laser did what, and what type of light helped with which skincare concern, another treatment comes along that quickly becomes the talk of the town.
The latest treatment innovation to sweep skincare clinics is the Hydrafacial - a high-tech facial that can treat all manner of skin concerns and is quickly becoming the most popular non-invasive aesthetic treatment on the market.
The Hydrafacial is a hand-held hydradermabrasion device that acts like a vacuum, sucking up all the dirt, grime and excess oil from deep within your pores as well as whipping away any dead skin cells from the surface. The grime then shoots up a tube, and collects in a little container ready for inspection (or not depending how recently you've eaten).
But it doesn't stop there - as it sucks, it simultaneously spits out skincare actives, pushing them deep into the skin. This step can be tailored to provide targeted treatment specific to your needs.
"The beauty of the Hydrafacial is it’s suitable for all skin types and has a variety of indications," explains Dr Esho, a renowned cosmetic doctor. "From helping to treat acne prone skin to treating the signs of ageing the Hydrafacial is diverse and can be tailored to each individual skin type."
I added salicylic acid to my skincare regime and couldn't believe what happened
The best bit? There's no down time and is totally pain free. "After the the treatment the skin is left with a glow and you can skin feels truly cleaned and clean. I find many of my patients fall asleep during treatment - and wake up to glowing skin!"
