The treatments can be tailored for specific skin concerns as well as for general skin health, and for even the most sensitive skins there’s no irritation or downtime.
The results can be seen immediately and are long-lasting.
HydraFacial™ is a unique and non-invasive multi-step treatment
It combines six separate skin rejuvenation procedures in one:
- hydration and
- antioxidant protection.
How HydraFacial™ works
HydraFacial’s multi-step process starts by cleansing, exfoliation and extraction to remove impurities and dead cells from your skin.
At the same time, it replenishes your skin with vital nutrients including antioxidants, peptides and hyaluronic acid (the substance used in dermal fillers).
These all help to mitigate environmental damage, and plump and firm your skin to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Detox: lymphatic drainage helps to increase circulation of the lymphatic system, which increases blood flow to the skin. This delivers oxygen to support the cells and fresh, clean lymph to restore hydration, toning and firming the skin as well as eliminating toxins.
Cleansing and exfoliation: dead skin cells are gently exfoliated to reveal healthy, new skin. Simultaneously, a serum containing lactic acid, glucosamine and many botanical extracts is deeply delivered to cleanse and nourish the skin.
Brightening agent: a gentle glycolic and salicylic solution helps to loosen debris from your pores, ready for the extraction stage while also brightening the appearance of your skin.
Extraction: this process uses a serum of natural salicylic acid and honey extract to remove blackheads, while also drawing out impurities from the congested areas of your skin.
Hydration: HydraFacial Vortex-Fusion delivers hyaluronic acid and powerful antioxidants, peptides and multi-peptides to replenish and hydrate your skin, leaving it in optimum health.
Rejuvenation: red and infrared LED light reduces redness and further stimulates production of collagen. The light also supports the natural production of vitamin D, to leave your skin glowing.
HydraFacial treatment protocols
At River Aesthetics, we can combine the separate multi-step treatments in different protocols, each offering you more tailored solutions both to general and to individual skin concerns.
Skin Health for Life
HydraFacial’s philosophy of Skin Health for Life is about truly restoring youthful and healthy skin.
Advanced, patented Vortex technology delivers botanical ingredients with the most desirable nutrients – such as hyaluronic acid, horse chestnut seed extract, red algae extract, copper zinc and magnesium peptides.
These powerful antioxidants work effectively to counter the damage caused by pollution, sun exposure and stress, each of which can accelerate the ageing process.
The HydraFacial leaves your skin with an immediate glow, from the moment you walk out the door.
The 30-minute treatment session, instant results and no downtime offers you all the key HydraFacial benefits but doesn’t take too much time out of your day.
The Express treatment leaves your skin looking refreshed, rejuvenated and hydrated.
This anti-ageing treatment uses DermaBuilder’s specially-formulated, multi-peptide, anti-ageing serum to target and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
It also enhances your skin’s elasticity, noticeably plumping and tightening the skin.
Britenol skin brightening and pigmentation reduction
Britenol intensive spot corrector treatment targets pigmented lesions, dark spots, age spots and sun damage.
The main ingredient of Britenol, alpha arbutin, blocks the production of melanin. Britenol also contains Vitamin C and antioxidants, which help to reduce the appearance of pigmentation lesions.
Acne and acne scarring
HydraFacial Acne and Acne Scarring treatment helps to improve active acne by reducing the build-up of excess oils, and improves scarring by deeper exfoliation.
It uses natural salicylic acid and GlySal peels of different strengths to give visible improvements to your skin, starting from your first treatment session.
