 WHAT TO EXPECT 

Prior to your first treatment, your clinician will consult with you to assess your suitability for HydraFacial and discuss any concerns or questions you may have. The treatment involves our clinician using a machine that connects to a wand which glides over your face to complete different phases of the process. The medical-geade, hydradermbraion device cleanses, exfoliates and infuses the skin with intensive customised serums.

After treatment, there is no downtime. You may experience some slight pinkness post-treatment which will settle within a few hours, however you will notice an immediate glow.
