Every so often a beauty treatment comes along which revolutionises our approach to skincare; the HydraFacial, ladies and gentlemen, is one of those treatments. Cue space age music…..
Designed primarily to restore health to your skin, the HydraFacial is a specialist six step, non-invasive facial treatment which requires no downtime. That’s right folks, this is one you can have on your lunch break and you’re guaranteed to see a difference the very same day.
So, who is it for? You’re used to selecting your facial based on your age, skin type, expected outcome etc. right? Well the HydraFacial flips that approach on its head because it’s suitable for everyone – any age, any skin type, anyone. Because skin health is the primary objective, anyone can benefit from this innovative treatment.
The hype around this treatment has been huge, with Karren Brady, a long-standing fan of the treatment, fronting the latest campaign, the HydraFacial has become a staple treatment for TV Presenters looking for “HD skin”. And it’s not only TV Presenters who are HydraFacial converts, with a celebrity following including Beyonce, Kate Winslet, Suki Waterhouse, Brittany Snow and Eva Mendes, surely their glowing skin is testament to the HydraFacial (and admittedly maybe a little Photoshop).
Newcastle Hair and Beauty Clinic approached me to road test the treatment and see if it lived up to the hype and I admit I was a little skeptical. A treatment not aimed at any particular skin type which claims to target:
- Fine lines & Wrinkles
- Elasticity and Firmness
- Skintone, Evenness and Vibrancy
- Skin Texture
- Hyperpigmentation / Photo Damage
- Oily / Congested Skin
- Enlarged Pores
- Advanced Signs of Ageing
….Pretty bold claims, even for a fancy looking machine.
So with skin health on my agenda, I set off to the clinic fresh from the gym to be pampered. My designated Facial Therapist, Kayleigh, took me up to the top floor to a light an airy suite with lots of natural light and talked me through the six steps which make up the HydraFacial treatment:
