How it Works
The Signature HydraFacial uses a three-step method to exfoliate, cleanse and nourish the skin. It begins by deeply cleansing and exfoliating, with ingredients that remove layers of dead skin. Using a vacuum handpiece, impurities are gently suctioned out, cleaning congested pores. Once the skin has been cleaned and exfoliated, nourishing serums are applied to hydrate the skin, with better absorption.
If you choose the Deluxe HydraFacial, a personalised booster will then be applied to your skin to treat your personal skin concerns. The booster can be formulated to treat pigmentation, acne, signs of ageing and more. LED Light Therapy will then target bacteria, reduce inflammation and treat concerns such as pigmentation and skin ageing.
Dr Scott Allison offers the Ultimate HydraFacial, with the option of lymphatic drainage before treatment. Lymphatic drainage can reduce puffiness and swelling, while improving circulation.

Who is a suitable candidate for HydraFacial?
If you want to deeply cleanse, exfoliate and hydrate your skin, you may be a suitable candidate for HydraFacial. Ideally, you’ll have realistic expectations as to what can be achieved with the treatment and be able to follow aftercare advice.
HydraFacial is generally suitable for all skin types, however, those with allergies to certain ingredients, active skin conditions or sunburn in the treatment area may not be suitable for the treatment. Candidates who are undergoing acne treatment or have recently had IPL or laser on the treatment area may also be unsuitable for HydraFacial.
During a consultation, Dr Scott can discuss your personal needs and skin concerns to determine if you are a suitable candidate for the treatment.
