1. Celebrity approved
I admit it. I’m a sucker for any Hollywood treatment preferred by the stars. The 50 minute version of the HydraFacial is a must for red carpet regulars Kate Winslet, Beyonce and Eva Mendes.
After having met Eva earlier this year – I would try ANYTHING this 38-year-old has to get my mid twenties complexion looking half as good.
2. It does what it says it’s going to
HydraFacial claim: “Treatments are quick, relaxing and effective. After the treatment, the skin is radiantly clean, refined, moist and polished.”
And I can’t say anything to the contrary. After being prodded for 20 minutes I left with a couple of pink patches, but nothing that couldn’t be mistaken for a mid-afternoon flush. Twenty minutes after the treatment and there’s no traces of redness – making it a perfect lunch time pick-me-up.
3. Your skin will just keep on getting better
The best way to get initial results is to book in for a course of six – one treatment a week. This will get your skin to a standard that is significantly improved.Fine lines will be diminished, hyper pigmentation less obvious and congestion cleared away. After six weeks of treatments you can have a maintenance treatment once every two months.
4. Bespoke treatment every timeThe HydraFacial is tailored to your individual skincare needs, meaning you will get a bespoke treatment suited to your skin’s requirements. Feel special much?5. Visible resultsI went into the facial hoping to rid my skin of that London look. My skin was anything but Rimmel ready.
Congested pores, dull appearance and lack luster – I was praying that this would be the facial to attack all traces of blackheads and buff me up a treat.
I wasn’t disappointed. My pores were prepped with the decongestant serum before my therapist used the tip to suck out pretty much everything that was in them.
She showed me the results half way through so I could see the difference and it’s a good job I was already lying down.
If you want squeaky clean pores that are HD ready then it doesn’t get much better. The HydraFacial literally rids you of any grime and build up – my skin was almost singing with delight.
Post treatment I couldn’t believe I was make-up free. My skin looked even, bright and glowy – and I headed to the office where I was greeted with lots of welcome words about how ‘well rested’ I looked.
Post treatment it’s recommended that you don’t touch your skin with any product until the next day – to allow your skin time to absorb whats already been pumped into it with the vacuum tip.
