The best skin of your life: The rise of HydraFacial and why everyone is talking about it
HydraFacialⒸ is viewed as the ultimate way to pursue and maintain long-term skin health, revolutionising facials and providing an experience that is significantly more effective than anything that has come before. Growth has been impressive, with recent studies showing a HydraFacial is performed every 15 seconds. Whilst many are only just discovering this technology-driven approach to facials, the Southern Californian company has been honing their products since 1997 and are now providing the go to facial experience and are a pivotal player in the aesthetics industry.
Your therapist will apply layer upon layer of different cleansers and creams and with help of a steamer manually begin extracting blackheads and impurities from your nose and face. Traditional extraction processes used in facials are often painful, leaving the skin irritated, not particularly cleansed and often leave clients with unsatisfactory results.
Because of HydraFacial, and the patented technology behind it, that is a thing of the past. Extraction process are now relaxing, therapeutic and deliver effective and consistent results. The “vortex-fusion” technology gently vacuums all impurities and blackheads which build up from urban lifestyles without the need for manual extraction using brute force. A strangely enticing part of the process for many clients is the ability to see how much dirt and debris has been removed from their pores by inspecting the device afterwards, highlighting just how effective the process is.
In essence the HydraFacial is an advanced multi-step facial treatment. In one sitting, our aestheticians cleanse, exfoliate, extract, and deliver a variety of rejuvenating serums, all within an hour to ensure you have the most effective facial of your life, creating a plumper, more youthful appearance, whilst addressing any specific skin concerns – all with absolutely no downtime.
Lauren Lavers, Senior Aesthetician and Treatment Coordinator says, “Every clients skin is different, and every individual comes to us with different concerns; at the Lanesborough Club and Spa, we offer a bespoke HydraFacial that will be tailored to a client's exacting needs following a thorough consultation, providing the targeted and effective results they desire”.
HydraFacial's signature six step process explained:
The treatment begins with a specially formulated lymphatic drainage technique which helps to improve circulation and eliminate toxins.
- Cleanse and Exfoliate
The next step involves simultaneous cleansing and exfoliating. Dead skin cells are buffed away, while a combination of lactic acid and glucosamine are delivered into pores to aid exfoliation and boost dermal hydration.
A gentle mix of salicylic and glycolic acids to help loosen and dissolve any leftover debris and brighten the complexion are applied.
Now for the crucial part of the process: the extraction. This is where the spiral tip spins and draws out blackheads and other impurities from the pores. Infinitely more soothing and effective than manual extraction.
- Hydrate & Plump
A customised combination of hyaluronic acid, antioxidants and peptides replenish, rejuvenate, and hydrate the skin.
Finally, red and infrared LED light is applied which soothes the skin, reduces redness, and stimulates collagen production leaving skin glowing.
