A deep-cleansing, exfoliating facial done with a mechanised device whose different treatment heads can exfoliate, deliver a peeling solution, perform extractions, and hydrate the skin.

Tweakment Details

Needles: No
Pain level: Low
Cost from: £75
Recovery time: None

Where is hydrafacial used for:

The face and decolletage

How does hydrafacial treatment work:

The Hydrafacial device looks like an overgrown pen with a whirling vortex of water. Somehow, this water-vortex whirls in and out of the device without spraying everywhere and, by changing the tip of the device, it can be used to cleanse the skin, give a lymph-draining massage, exfoliate the skin, and apply glycolic acid. It then vacuums out the debris, leaving the skin much smoother and more receptive to hydrating serum that is the final step.

How long does hydrafacial treatment take:

Half an hour

Pain level:



None needed


Fresher, clearer skin that looks fresher and feels softer after the light peeling and deep hydrating that it has received.

Lasts for:

10 days

After treatment:

Your skin may be a bit pink after the treatment, but it should only be a light flush that will calm down in an hour or so.

Things to bear in mind:

The Hydrafacial is done with a mechanised device, so it’s not a soothing, pampering sort of facial.
